Friday, Jan 1: Rest day

Happy New Year’s Day!

Today was a rest day, and rest is exactly what I’ve done. Even though I only had two sips of Champagne last night, I barely made it past midnight. I went to bed at about 12:10 a.m., and fell right to sleep. I did not wake up from my much needed rest until 12:00 p.m., when my husband woke me up because we were supposed to go on a New Year’s Day hike. But I was too tired to go, so we canceled. Then, I stayed in bed for another two hours before getting up to run some errands. Luckily, my husband was driving because I managed to fall asleep in the car. When we got home at 5:30, I was so tired that I had to take a nap. I didn’t wake up until 9:00 p.m. And even as I type this, I still haven’t made it out from under the covers. I’m just too physically exhausted to move too much.

I have a lot of chores to do before we fly home tomorrow, and I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who has picked up my slack. He even cooked dinner for me, and is currently cleaning the kitchen. I’m happy that he’s so willing to help out. But I’m feeling both guilty and frustrated—guilty because I don’t feel like I’m pulling my weight today; frustrated because I want more energy. I hope I can round up some more energy for and during our trip! I want to spend as much time as possible with our families—not sleeping the time away!
