Day 304: Resting has the vote

IT-IS-TIME-TO-REST1Today it caught up to me.  I woke up with a slight headache…and assumed it was from the house red I drank last night.  But the dull headache is still there and the exhaustion is settling in.

So much so that as I sat here trying to think of something to write…usually I don’t have to think this hard about it…and I realized that all I really want to do is lay down.  But I know laying down isn’t that simple.

First I need to make sure the puppy doesn’t have to pee…then gather him up and haul him to the couch with me.  I do that for a couple of reasons….First, it lets me keep an eye on him.  He’ll fall asleep and when he wakes up and starts squirming, I’ll know he needs to go out.  The other reason is that it keeps me from being disturbed when the puppies start playing in the dining room.

But I’m tired enough that all that sounds like too much work.  Right, picking up an adorable puppy sounds like work.  It’s effort that my body doesn’t want to exert.  I need to contain all my energy just to get to the couch.

I’m not a napper but it’s going to happen today.  It has to be.  We have the Invoke 10 year anniversary party tonight.  It’ll be too much fun to miss…with too many great people to see.

If I’m going to make it to the party, though, I must try to sleep now.  I feel like there’s stuff I need to do but my body is telling me to rest.  My brain is telling me to rest.  So who the hell is telling me not to?  Is it the ego?  Some third voice originating from…who the hell knows where?

Doesn’t matter.  This body is managed like a democracy and resting has the vote…it’s 2 to 1.  G’nite, y’all!
