I'm Sitting Here Falling Asleep at 7 pm

I am just exhausted. My knee woke me up in the middle to the night throbbing, I am not quite sure why. I got back to sleep after I rubbed it with an analgesic. At 7:15 I was awoken by my daughter calling me her best mommy!!! lol She had a flat tire and needed me to come and take her and Jack to his school. He is 5 years old today and she had to get him to school and drop off his birthday cupcakes. Hubs wanted to come along to help so off we went. Her husband met us back at her car after and he and hubs changed the tire and we went back home. I did my blog updates, turned down a mega writing project and edited an article for a friend before heading off to exercise. We grabbed a bite out and went to CVS to pick up a prescription and spend my extra bucks. I got two bags of stuff for $8, I felt like a super shopper. I have been playing on the computer all afternoon and then had leftovers for supper. It was not a productive day but I am exhausted anyway. I want to watch Dancing with the stars and Timeless but I am not sure I can make it. How was your day?

I'm sure that you made your daughter's day, and Jack's for that matter! I've had a regular Monday. I'm hoping for a good week this week too.

Happy birthday to Jack. Hope he had a good 5th birthday. I worked all day and now I am catching up on my TV SHOWS that I missed over three weekend. I like Timeless. It is a good series.

I am finding it improves every week, I am looking forward to this week/s show. I actually enjoy catching up, I do it on Saturdays when nothing good is on.

I usually want to crash and burn around 7pm every night. Maybe it's that post-meal lull when my body focuses all of its energy on digestion! Anyway, it takes all the strength I can muster to power through it. And then I'm fine for the rest of the night, and usually end up going to bed around midnight or 1am.

Do you eat carbs? That could be carb coma, which is what I call the results of having a carb heavy meal. lol I usually am good to go until at least midnight.

@BelleStarr I must have loaded up on the carbs today at lunch, because I had a 4-hour training class after lunch and I fell asleep about an hour into it! haha

You earn extra bucks for certain purchases and they are used like real Money you can combine them with coupons

I would say you accomplished quite a lot. I hope your grandson had a wonderful birthday. On the day of this post I started my vacation on Washington Island. It was a great day with beautiful weather, though it did rain that night, but didn't interfere with the first day of our vacation.

True though I am a high energy person so I am not used to being exhausted. I just didn't get enough sleep I think.
