Yawn…why am I tired?

Yawn, yawn goes my face today. I slept like a log last night and couldn’t figure out why I was so tired this morning. Then I had the following two conversations that made me laugh, both times… out loud.

Conversation #1 with my husband: 

Me: How was your night?

Sai: Pretty good, had one patient and then it was a quiet night. And yours?

Me: Well, after I got the girls to bed, I took out the compost, shoveled the driveway, did the dishes, washed/dried some laundry then ran 5k, showered and stretched. I got up at some point but can’t really remember if it was with one of the girls or just for me to use the bathroom. I slept like a log.

Sai: Ahh, well that’s a long list of things you did. Could be why you are so tired this morning.

Me: Humm…yes!

Conversation #2 today – with my Mother:

Me: Dialing phone number as I yawn into the phone and say hello mid-yawn.

Mom: You’re tired dear. What were you doing?

Me: Well, last night …after I got the girls to bed, I took out the compost, shoveled the driveway, did the dishes, washed/dried some laundry then ran 5k, showered and stretched.

Mom: While laughing, she replies with “you lost me a ran 5k”. You should really rest tonight, dear.

Me: Yawn…good idea Mom!

Apparently if you sleep like a log it doesn’t always mean you are well rested.

Tonight’s plan after the girls are in bed:

  • Shovel driveway – should only take 10-15 minute … we had light snow fall last night after I shoveled the first time. Might even skip this.
  • Yoga / Stretch and focus on my back exercises
  • Rest with my feet up by the fire *might even take a picture if you’re lucky*

I am hoping this will reduce the yawning tomorrow and make me feel a little more rejuvenated and ready for the weekend!

Do you sleep like a long after a busy day?

How often to you yawn?

When do you need a break from doing everything?
