A little up, a little down, a lot round & round

I am pretty pleased with how this week has went – for the most part. I’ve been very productive with work (still catching up), with home duties (almost done finding a place for everything and processing paperwork) and mom stuff (spending time with my youngest and suffering helping with homework).

On the health side of things and how I feel physically it’s been up and down. Last week I spent a lot of time working from the bed because I had exhausted myself with rental car and van repair issues, school shopping and everything in between. The series of naps and resting gave me a little energy, which I was able to use throughout the weekend and this week. But last night I had a BIG setback that prompted me to take some meds that make me extremely sleepy. Well, those pills have not worn off and it’s been more than 13 hours and I’m so drowsy that I keep dozing off where I sit. Where I sit right now happens to be the floor so I just lay down and rest ‘til the feeling passes… and give into a little dozing here and there.

That little face above is the one who keeps waking me up and who keeps me smiling.

Now if I can just make it through a work task without dozing off I can move through my work at a slow and steady pace. Otherwise it’ll be a long weekend of work and trying to fit in rest – or is that the other way around?!

How has your week been?
