A Self Imposed Hiatus

Ah, Blog World, I've missed you... but I had to take a little self-imposed hiatus.

The word that always seemed to be on the tip of my tongue at the end of last week was "exhausted". Absolutely physically exhausted. Developed a permanent, nearly debilitating headache, exhausted. I might hire a cleaning lady exhausted.

The odd thing is I got more sleep than usual. I got so much sleep that if it happened on the regular, I'd no longer be an insomniac. I'd be a normal, sleeping person!

Plus, after staring at a computer screen all day writing the highly interesting (and frequently INSANE) stories of the education world, the last thing I needed to do was come home and stare at a screen even more. Typing on a keyboard when you have two children you haven't seen all day trying to engage you isn't the way to go... not to mention it's a bit hard to type when I was coming home and passing out on the couch. In my clothes.

Sometime on Saturday (after sleeping for an unheard of four hours in the afternoon) I began wondering if my severe headaches and general tiredness were the result of some sort of post-traumatic stress thing from those guys trying to mug me last week. It could be. I may sound brave but I was absolutely terrified. All that fear has to go somewhere in the body, right?

Hopefully the headaches will go away and the fatigue will full work itself out of my system this week. I'm running the Pasadena Marathon on Sunday so I need to get it together!

Wot, no sympathy from anyone? What a hard-hearted bunch. I wouldn't be at all surprised if the headaches and fatigue are a reaction to the very scary almost-mugging. I'm sure they'll wear off again. Good luck with the Marathon!

Yes, a post-traumatic stress, I'm sure. I was nervous after reading it, and wondered how you blogged so calmly about it.

Ooor that & sleep deprivation. I read an article that I can't find now & realized that at least 3 of the 5 symptoms were me. I'm not an insomniac, but working 3rd shift is un-natural.

I'll be in aww of you again running a marathon...Good luck on Sunday!
