Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Crap. That's how I'm feeling today. It started early evening yesterday. I felt so tired I made a pot of coffee just to be able to get dinner on the table. I usually only drink coffee in the morning. When Hubster got home I went straight to bed. The coffee, however, prevented me from sleeping. I just laid there. My body was so tired I didn't want to move. No TV, no reading. I just laid there with my eyes closed wishing for sleep to come. It was close to 11pm before I actually fell asleep and the first kid came in at 4am looking for someone to snuggle with. The other started yelling for me at 6:20.

I attribute this sluggish feeling to my lack of exercise. Is that possible? I was doing really well with EA Active's 30 day challenge until Handsome got Super Mario Galaxy 2. Wii time was then spent either watching him and the neighbor kid play or helping him. It's been more than two weeks and I think my body is telling me to get back to it. My head says it's a good idea, the rest of me doesn't even have the energy to get the disc out of the box.

How do you overcome these feelings of sluggishness?


  1. where have you been? missed you.
    sometimes you just need to recharge and I bet you are up and at 'em today.

  2. I think the weather can make you sluggish, sometimes even if you've gone to bed you haven't slept well. I do best to keep going though when I'm sluggish with a normal routine. Coffee at night and I would have been like, though worse; probably up all night. errr

    Yes exercise can make you feel better after awhile, give you more energy. But, don't over do getting back into; it takes a while. I'm beat today, worked a 10 hour day on my feet with only bout a 20 minute break yesterday. So, I share your sluggishness. I did manage to throw a load of laundry in, do a blog post, meet a friend for lunch and um probably will through a 2nd load in a minute. The up and down the steps to the basement....that counts as exercise right, and making the bed? lol

  3. Love the post and lack of exercise could definitely be the source of the sluggishness. Next time try taking a shower or B vitamins can be good for natural energy. I just started working out again two weeks ago and I already feel like I have more energy in the day. Good Luck!
