Today Was The Day. I Crashed.

The past few weeks have been extra crazy, busy. Lisa's been working late, I've been working on DIY projects, keeping up with the blogs and social media, getting our Bodacious Biscuit Love Bin ready, working out details for some changes on the Bodacious Biscuit Love end of things, etc. On top of that, I haven't been sleeping well and I'm surviving on about 2-3 hours of sleep a day. I usually do okay despite all, but this week has taken its toll.

Once in a while, maybe 2-3 times a year, I have a day where I crash. I'll sleep most of the day and I have no interest in doing anything that requires effort.

Today was the day. 

It wasn't just me, though. We were all feeling it. Our kids had no interest in playtime. When we took them outside, they wanted to come in immediately after "doing their business." Sophie curled up on the home office love seat. Coco and Lobo snuggled in their blankets on the sofa.

Lisa ate her breakfast at the kitchen table. I sat with her and drank coffee. After breakfast, Lisa said, "I have no energy today. I want to sit and do nothing."

My reply was a simple, "Okay. Me too."

By this time, it was about 10:30 a.m. 

I grabbed Lisa's tablet and crawled into bed.

Sophie ran to the bedroom, jumped onto the bed, and snuggled with me under her favorite blanket.

Coco and Lobo followed Lisa to the sofa for a Netflix binge.

I was asleep a half hour later.

And I slept.

And slept.

The kids barking woke me up.

It was almost 3 p.m.

Lisa was up. She started a load of laundry and made a pot of coffee.

I felt refreshed.

Almost 4 hours of solid sleep.

That never happens.

I still had no ambition to do anything. Thankfully we had leftovers from our celebration of Life and Love the night before.

We ate.

Watched a few episodes of Criminal Minds.

Lisa went to bed early.

I didn't start anything related to work until around 9 p.m.

I have no guilt.
