Really. I've got nothing.

I've got no energy whatsoever. After a productive few weeks of running around nonstop, the brakes have been slammed. I've been stuck in this cycle for months now, with my energy level plummeting to the depths for days or weeks at a time, then returning to normal again, and there is no simple solution to it. I've had blood tests drawn that came back normal. I've been trying to eat healthier foods, and while it has helped overall, it's still a struggle.

So for the last two days I have had to force myself to complete simple tasks: breakfast, lunch, dinner, laundry, driving to school and back, all the while fighting the urge to just crawl into bed and sleep. The kiddos have been parked in front of the TV, not feeling too well themselves, and by bedtime it is all that I can do to keep from snapping at them to just GO TO BED already because I AM TIRED.

Tomorrow I have to spend the day at work, completing my annual certification for a self-defense type class. The thought of lifting any of my limbs to defend myself at this point is laughable. The thought of having everyone fed and dressed and out of the house before 8 feels about as possible as climbing Mount Everest.

It's entirely possible that tomorrow will be better. It's possible that, after a good night's sleep, I will wake up feeling normal again. I never know.

What I do know is that I will eventually come back around, if the past is any indication, and I will quickly forget what all of my complaining was about to begin with. In the meantime, my posting here will be a real downer sporadic for now, but hopefully soon things will get better.

On a more positive note: I saw the first daffodils blooming today. Spring is on its way.


  1. I hope that whatever is going on with your health gets straightened out soon.
    I'll be thinking about you.

  2. take it easy, blog when you can but do NOT feel obligated whatsoever to entertain your readers...way too much responsibilty. we can manage...i hope.

    sending good thoughts for good health your way...

  3. Oh, say that last line again, please???? Can spring really be on its way? We are expecting 4-6 more inches of snow tonight. Waahhhh!!!!
    I think we are all feeling down and out lately.
    Hope you come 'round soon!
    Be well!

  4. Oh my friend. Sending you happiness and energy and prayers that you feel yourself again soon.

  5. oh that sucks! i wish i had some advice beyond the usual --exercise, healthy food, rest, iron. . .

    take care of yourself--you deserve to feel well.

  6. I hope you're feeling better soon...

    And I know what you mean about spring flowers. I saw crocuses last weekend when we were walking in Luxembourg. I even stopped to take pictures of them! :)
