One of my desires is to get off my butt more. I get tired so easily; I could sit all day and be okay with that. Going from one chore to another without an hour or two to sit down in between is exhausting to me. Hmm, now that I’m thinking about this, that’s not normal, is it? I wonder if I should make a doctor’s appointment.
Today I tried to be more active, though I didn’t make it to the pool like I usually try to do in the mornings. I was planning to go grocery shopping after swimming (my usual Monday routine), and so I spent some time away from the computer and figuring out the meal plan and grocery list. Then, as I was about to leave, I remembered that the lady coming to observe Savannah was due to arrive in only an hour, and I couldn’t make it to the grocery store and back by then. So I cleaned up the house, and then when the lady arrived I played with Savannah for about an hour and a half while she took notes. I bet Savannah loved my attention.
Wow, writing all this makes me realize how very easily tired I get. Even though I was just sitting on the ground with her (not moving), about halfway through I had to stop and sit on the chair because I was so exhausted.
I did get a break for about an hour after the lady left, and Savannah went down for a short nap. Then she woke up and the two of us went to pick up Paul from the train station. We swung by Home Depot on the way home to get some paper leaf bags so I could do my 30 minute challenge. Paul watched Savannah while I worked in the yard, picking up branches and raking up pine needles. It was nice to be outside. And Savannah stood at the screen door and watched me, occasionally interjecting a “HI!” if she thought I was ignoring her too much. So cute!
When I was done with the yard, I went to get my hair cut. Since I started swimming, I’ve been having a horrible time with my hair being dry and tangled. I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things afterward. I called Paul, and apparently Savannah found the phone and answered it. It was so cute. She kept saying “Hi!” and then a bunch of gibberish that sounding convincingly like an actual telephone conversation. I’m still unsure if Paul even knew that I had called.
Once home, I quickly ate dinner and finished cleaning the guest room. My brother-in-law’s girlfriend flew through Atlanta on her way to Brazil and needed a place to crash for the night, so I drove down to the airport to pick her up. A very busy day; I am finally sitting again and feel absolutely exhausted. I could go to sleep right now, and it’s only midnight! I am always happy, though, when I manage to spend my day doing things instead of sitting on the couch all day. I just hate how exhausted it makes me feel!
Tomorrow, my goal is to again accomplish more. We have PT in the morning, and it always helps when I’m forced to be up and out of the house first thing. :-)
