Weekend Update: I’m pooped.
I’m just so tired these days, and I don’t know why. I’ve been feeling ready for bed by 9pm every night. Is it Daylight Savings making the evenings darker? Is it my Implanon screwing with my moods? I just want to feel peppy and energised again. I want to feel engaged and passionate about my hobbies. Right now I’m going through the motions a little bit. I don’t think I’m depressed or anything; I’m still technically Getting Shit Done. I guess I’m just a little blue, is all.
I spent most of Friday night getting ready for the Guild meeting on Saturday. In addition to my normal duties as Convenor, I also had to give a presentation on “Joining, Weaving and Splicing” (with help from Tia) and then reprise my “Welcome to the Knitternet” presentation for some guests from the Southern Highlands. It was our biggest meeting yet – 47 people! – yet also one of the smoothest and best. I’m actually really proud of that. That took up most of the day, and after a quick beer with Amy, I headed home to chill out. (The Snook spent all day Saturday at work, as his team is working to meet a major deadline.) So I had dinner, watched some Gossip Girl, and went to bed.
This morning I got up early for my planned 19km run. (That’s 12 miles!) It took me just over 2.5 hours to complete. It was a hot day, and my biggest problem was staying hydrated on the hills. My foot injury wasn’t an issue at all, which was nice. I feel like I should feel more pumped up about the accomplishment, but really, I just got ‘er done. As soon as I got home, I had to quickly shower before Miss Fee and JP arrived. The three of us were heading off to a very special baby shower for Rose Red. There were loads of bloggers there: her and her and her and her and her and many more… We had sausage rolls and nibbles and cake and champagne. We knitted and chatted. We cheered as Jane opened all her pressies. It was fun! Afterwards I came home and pretty much collapsed. I just can’t muster up the energy to DO anything. I want to record a podcast. I want to start a new knitting project. I want to clean the kitchen. I want to plan a trip to the U.S. I just feel a little… stuck. How do I get unstuck?
