Ahhhhh... sleep! That's what I've been missing!

I have been afflicted with an excess of energy lately. I know, I know... how can I complain about extra energy? Actually, it's not the energy I mind. It is the restlessness. I can't sit still. Can't focus. I'm not hungry. Or tired at bedtime (or three hours after bedtime!) My mind and emotions are restless. I'm walking six or seven miles a day. And if I had more time for walking, I would be going much further. I have to choke down food when my stomach starts to complain bitterly. But only a few bites before I just can't pay attention to the darned food anymore.

The up side? My *body* feels great! But, really! C'mon now! My brain is ready for a rest. I hiked four or five miles with one of my best friends today. Three dogs, through the woods, a beautiful waterfall, lots of major hills. The dogs are worn out. Even the puppy! Here she is, napping again. It seems like I should feel like that. Happily exhausted. But, nope. I've been pacing. Squirming in my seat. Seeing how long I can stay put before bolting back out of the house for another walk. Maybe this will be the walk that finally tires me out?

Have a happy day!


  1. Katie, I feel your pain. Really, I do. Wish I had a cure for it. :>


  2. Hope you get your much needed rest! Sounds like you and my 8 mo old son have the same problem!!!LOL We also go on lots of walks at different times of day. More so than I would ever care to talk about on my blog!!!!!!! My mother in law takes calcium before bed and swears by it.?

  3. Playing a concert is equivalent to 8 hours of rest. This is scientifically proven.
    See you tonight!


Love to hear from you! Thanks so much for posting :o)
