Super Woman to Sloth

Why is it some days I can handle absolutely anything and everything and some days I just want to crawl on the couch? I can deal with the same old stuff at work, have the same amount of coffee, but my energy level in the evening differs from one day to the next.

Tuesday night after work I ran two miles on the treadmill, did the whole dinner, homework, bath, clean the kitchen thing, and read some books and put the kids to bed. After they were in bed I swept and washed the floors, made Logan’s lunch, cleaned out the refrigerator and did three loads of laundry.

Wednesday was no different from Tuesday, but when evening came and dinner was done I had no energy to clean the mess, but had to force myself to. When the kids went to bed all I wanted was a glass of wine and the couch. I folded one load of laundry and called it quits. How does super woman turn into a sloth in just one day? I need my spunk to be on demand.

  1. I would say you need to slow your roll on some days (Tuesday for instance good grief woman!) so that you have energy for the next day. Spread it out a little since you know there will never be a day that there isn’t anything that needs tending to!

    I have to say that I too am guilty of superwoman to sloth in just 24 hours. Happens all the time and I think we just over do it one day and have nothing left for the next. Period.

    TGIF friend 😉

  2. I am the same way! Some nights I am non-stop from the minute I walk in the door until I close my eyes for bed. I think it is natures way of telling moms to slow down – last night you were a maniac…tonight be a couch potato!
