One of the most difficult things to do, I think, is maintain family. My heart tells me it shouldn’t be that way. Most of us grow up with the idea that family is everything. Your friends leave but family is always there.  Bleh. Not true.

Blended family is even more difficult. I truly believe people have the best of intentions. I truly believe people don’t realize how their words and actions/inactions can cut someone to the core. I have to believe those things. Otherwise… well, I can’t imagine some things being intentional.

Spring football just ended. School is almost done. Summer is looming. I am amazed at how fast things come & go anymore. I remember folks telling me that time goes by faster as you get older. I wonder why that is.  Time doesn’t change. The meter is the same forever.

Yesterday was one of the laziest days in the history of Sherri.

I woke up in the morning at a decent time. 7ish in the morning. By 9ish I was back in bed, waking at 12:30. I managed to stay awake for a few hours and then it was back to bed. I finally got up around 5:45 in the afternoon. Wasted day. I accomplished nothing. Well, nothing unless it was in the best interest of my body to sleep all day. I know it was good for me. I just hate that a day off is spent sleeping. So much of my time is spent working & missing the things I enjoy doing. The days off I wish I had the gumption to do those things. I’m lucky that I enjoy my work or I’d be screwed. Today is another day off…. guess where I’m headed in the next 1/2 hour?

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Ugh — I’ve had so many days like the one you describe. Ones in which I don’t think that I could remove myself from the bed (or the floor, or whatever horizontal surface I happened to fall unconscious upon, first!) if my very life depended on it. I *hate* those kinds of days because they really do seem wasted, but surely we wouldn’t be able to sleep that much if our bodies didn’t desperately need it, right?!

  2. Another amen on the family front. A tricky area – laid with mines.
    And it sounds as if your body is demanding rest. Rather a lot of it. Listen to it as much as you can. Frustrating as it is.

    • You are absolutely right… my body does need the rest. It just sorta sucks… I know I’ll be happy I gave in later in the week though.

      I hope all is well with you 🙂

  3. I am sure your body needed it or you wouldn’t have slept so much. It’s so hard to take the time to rest when we want to be doing things. That’s been the hardest part about not being healthy for me, all the stuff I can’t do because my body can’t keep up with my desires. I’m sorry you felt like the day was wasted, but I don’t think it was.

    I hope today is a much more enjoyable day for you.

    And amen on the family stuff. Ugh.
