Sometimes I get so tired when things are going well
that I don't even know I'm exhausted. Today was that
kind of day. It's crazy how I struggle against my
inclination to give up and just do nothing. I tried
marking, I did some painting, I talked to my kids,
and tidied, and all the while I should have just
gone back to bed. Most of the time I'm so cheerful,
that my family and friends really notice when I'm
not. Today I was about as lackluster as the grey
and snowing day outside.
Never mind -- by supper time I picked myself up
again, and Steven and I went to He's Just Not That
Into You. I really enjoyed the movie -- it's not
superb, but it was a treat, and a good way to get
back to my normal self. Now I'm taking that tired
self to bed.
