Now that I am doing events on a regular basis I am really able to identify with what I like to call event exhaustion. The day after an event I am beat. Even my creative mind struggles to show any sign of life. Except maybe today that is because I went out and built a scarecrow (story for the next blog). I sleep like a baby, struggle to convince myself to get out of bed and believe it or not I don’t even attempt to check email.
Yesterday’s big event was the Venditti Summer Race (yet another blog for a couple days from now) and at about 8:00pm last night I had hit the wall. I was home in bed by 8:40 and slept right through. This morning I woke up, went and grabbed my laptop. Trevor rolled over and said “What are you doing, working?” I was going to answer yes but then realized I didn’t care to work. So instead I surfed Facebook for nothing really then looked through Pinterest for no good reason. By the time I finished that, probably at least an hour later, I decided I felt like doing something fun with my girls and went out and bought all the stuff to make a scarecrow.
Although I was excited to do that, by the time we went and got groceries and picked up all the stuff I was exhausted again and struggled to motivate myself but I know my daughter was excited to help so I worked through it and made a beautiful masterpiece to be admired by everyone who drives by our house.
And now, although blogging is work, I am lying on the couch just chillin. Feet up, eyes getting heavy but feel better now that I’ve written something and might try to tackle one more blog post but we’ll see. If not, I will probably do some family stuff on Facebook and then search Pinterest for a good chicken recipe for dinner. Bedtime is looking like it will be about 7 tonight. Woohoo, can’t wait!
