I was so exhausted today – I woke up with my alarm and just kept resetting it. I finally decided it was time to get my feet on the floor and I actually fell back asleep in the almost up position. I finally did drag myself up and then to work but felt the need for a nap once I got there. Not something that is really possible. The job I’m doing right now is reviewing procedures to be sure they make sense and that they follow certain standards – this is a job a lot of people don’t enjoy but I get a true satisfaction from making the procedures a much better product. It is one area in my life that I feel that I can control and in which I do a pretty good job.
But today it took forever to review just one procedure. I would get up to walk around, I was chewing gum (something I almost never do), I had some caffeine yet nothing worked to make me more alert. I looked forward to going home and taking a nap. One that would last until morning!
But the girls wanted to go to the swimming pool. I agreed as long as I could nap while they were at the pool. So I dropped off the girls and layed my seat back for a bit of a rest. Forty-five minutes later I awoke – yet I still felt exhausted. That is when i started looking at what I ate the last day or so. Food does a real number on my system and I can link many problems back to something I ate. That was when I remembered that Robert and the kids returned from Wisconsin yesterday and they brought me some cheese curds and a Kringle. Yum to both! Unfortunately, both have been known to upset my stomach. Especially the cheese – that is when it hit me. Cheese = dairy. Dairy = sluggishness. Whenever I eat anything dairy, I literally drag the next day or two as I try to regain balance. This was a dairy tired. I was almost relieved to know there was a decent explanation; and that tomorrow may (or may not) be a much better day!
A handful of cheese
Can make some people tired
Tasty, fiendish cheese.
