I'm sooo Sleepish

Maybe it's because I fasted all day yesterday, maybe it's because it's the first week back for my students, maybe it's because every night this week has been go, go, go, maybe it's because we still do not have a working toilet, and I had to go to a gas station at 2:30 AM to go potty, or maybe it's because I can hear the wind howling through thick walls (we're under a wind advisory).

Maybe it's all the above.

It's crazy though, I'm not doing the work my husband is, and I'm tired. I feel like I don't have a right to say, "I'm tired!" I've been dealing with the kiddos in the evening though. Last night I took Mica to Jiu-Jitsu. I can't wait until they split the class up! They are doing that next month, but have talked about it for a year I think. The seats for parents are limited, and there is an obvious difference in their skills. See all the kids without their gi? They are all new. At the Y I helped Isaak take a shower, took a shower myself, and had Mica take a shower after he was done with Jiu-Jitsu. At that point we still didn't have running water at home. Now we have running water, but still no toilet. We have a plywood floor now, and a start of vinyl floor. I had to go back to where we got the flooring because one box we had was damaged.


This was going to be my blogging day, but somehow all I've manage to do was stare at a screen all afternoon. I can't recall much of what I've done past lunch.

All morning I looked up topics for the students to give speeches on. Sounds easy enough. My co-worker that is giving an assignment wanted a list of different contemporary designers for the students to look up. Coming up with the first 20 were easy. I spent the rest of the morning trying to get the rest to equal 31. I need ones that are active, and had enough information for the students to research. The teacher I did the favor for has proofread all my handouts, so I owed her one.

What about you? Are you sleepish today?

Oh, I didn't realize when you posted about your toilet issues that it was the only one in your house. That wouldn't fly with me LOL. I'd be sleeping in a hotel or the toilet would need to be #1 priority.

I find monthly B12 shots help to give me energy. I'm way overdue for one and tired, too.

I find that I am even more sleepish in the winter time. Lack of warmth and sunshine always makes me so tired!

How long until your toilet is fixed?!?

Yes! So tired. Seems like the crud that has getting everyone sick around Omaha has struck our house. My poor son was sick at 2:30 and 4 and 5:30 this morning.

I'm sorry to hear you're without a potty still. :( It'll all be up and running soon (knock on wood!).

Of course you are tired. The stress of having your home life disrupted is going to do that to you. I think you have done very well indeed juggling all of that.

The martial arts training is well worth the trouble. For ten years, I drove 38 miles to work over the mountain, drove 38 miles home at the end of the day, picked up the kids, drove them 38 miles to the same town I worked in for Karate, and then made the trip home. But the benefits they derived from it were so useful to them in their lives that I have never regretted it. I did snap my Achilles tendon during the class about two years into it though and thereafter I sat on the benches with the other parents.

Fasting can help to get rid of toxins and when toxins are leaving our body, they make us have a foggy brain etc....
I didn't know you were into fasting.
