After a big event, I am tired the next day, but the 2nd day after is usually the hardest. Two days after climbing a mountain is no exception.
Saturday, I went to bed achy & woke up tired, but over all feeling pretty good. Last night, I went to bed tired & woke up more TIRED!
Good news, I should be feeling more normal tomorrow :o)
Tired didn't change the fact that it is Monday. Didn't change the fact that Josh's teacher came & the girls had school to do as well. Didn't change the fact that the cupboards were looking pretty empty & everyone needed to be fed. Didn't change the fact that I needed to get some walking & laundry done.
- I managed a very slow 1.4 mile walk. It was early enough that it was still cool-ish & actually felt good.
- Kei got a 95% on her math test & a 100% on her English "checkup" pages!
- Josh had fun with his teacher.
- I was ready to crawl back in bed before lunch. I honestly was so tired I wasn't even hungry. Everyone pitched in & left overs were made to stretch more because there wasn't anything else to fix than anything else. I felt 200% better after some lunch.
- After lunch, I felt up to a grocery run. I was even brave enough to drive our loaner car (our car was in for inspection).
- After groceries were put away, I still felt good. Good enough to process the plums we were given. Not ripe plums, but rather green / partially ripe plums for making plum juice. I even walked to the little store near us to get the rock sugar that I had forgotten to get at the grocery.
The plums will need to be shaken a couple times a day, but in a week to 10 days we should have plum syrup which can then be diluted to make a yummy summer drink. I say "should" because last year I did something wrong and we ended up with moldy plum gook. LORD willing, it will be drinkable this year!
In the end it has been a productive day. I am still tired, but feel better enough to actually believe that I will feel better tomorrow.
How about you, do you ever have 2nd day syndrome?
