I swear I feel like a crazy woman. This must be kind of what it feels like to be bipolar! (ok maybe not that bad) Yesterday I could barely move around most of the day. I wanted to sleep, but when it came time for DD to nap, I just couldn't make myself fall asleep. Has nothing to do with being busy the day before b/c it was Sunday and we just hung out, watched football and dh smoked a pork butt.
Today on the other hand, I'm a maniac with cleaning and getting things done. Organized and swept out the garage, "put up" a lot of tomatoes for the freezer, baking a cake and I'm planning to try eggplant parmasean for the first time since I had an abundance of eggplant in the garden. I would rather just have a steady amount of energy. I think I will try to chill before getting DD from preschool in 30 minutes, but I'm just so antsy I'm not sure I can.
Anyone else get these extremes?
I do!! For the most part I have a good "hardcore" hour to an hour and a half were I can bust my butt and get stuff done, but then after that I need to rest for a while. I get those little spurts of energy here and there, but they are mostly during the day. After work they are hard to come by!
I've had the spurts. I drag most of the day, but will sometimes get a second wind (usually a nesting wind!) in the evening.

My October Space
I get the spurts of energy, but playing with dd usually knocks me flat. Hoping for a sustained burst to finish getting things around the house done this week.

In my head I'm full of energy and I'm going to get a zillion things done a day. Reality, though, is that I'm hurting too bad to do much. I'm struggling to keep up with my kids and normal housekeeping, no way I'm getting many extras done! I could definitely use an energy boost! All I ever want to do is sleep!
