I need some serious down time. Time when no one else is around. I need a weekend by myself, with lots of naps and sleeping in. And reading a book uninterrupted for hours on end. Although I love my daughter with all of my heart and I love her being here on the weekends, all of her early sobriety energy and chaos really wear me out. By the time she leaves on Sunday afternoon or evening, I am needing another weekend just to recover. Instead it is time to get ready for another week.
I haven't had more than a few days off of work in a row since last June when I went to Alaska. I am taking a beach vacation in July and will have no opportunity for time off until then. I will appreciate the vacation all the more for how exhausted I am I guess.
I had many things to write about this morning, but this is what I wrote. Funny.
Let's stay sober today, OK?
