Have you ever been so tired that you can’t even make it to bed? So tired your legs and feet ache, your hands tingle and your head seems to be in a fog?
That’s where I am right now. A long day at work followed by a long rehearsal has me sitting here wondering how I can get myself out of the chair and off to bed. How to make myself go to sleep.
But my mind is running circles around my physical self. Lots to do at work. Should probably work late tomorrow night. But have lots of music to practice too. And the dog needs to work on heeling before class on Saturday; she can’t do that by herself. I need to order dahlias for next summer. I was supposed to do that in January. Should find the order form. We have no groceries in the house. What will we have for dinner tomorrow? I think I was supposed to call my college roommate last night. Or tonight. Can’t remember for sure. I promised some people at work that I’d develop a self employed training unit by the end of March. What’s today’s date? Good I have time. Our next concert is the end of May. How many weeks does that give me to practice? I really want to run another race…but I haven’t run in two (or more…how long HAS it been) years. I should try to run one day after work this week, see how it goes. Wonder where my running clothes are. Haven’t seen my running watch in a long time either. Guess I don’t really need a watch, it’s not like I’m running fast. The guestroom needs organizing. Probably could find my running stuff if I did that. And I need to look for that photo of my brother and his friend as kids, I promised to send it to them. It might even be in the guest room closet. Should get organized.
Yep. Should get organized.
Or go to bed.
