Day Six (Thursday)
Since I was feeling so much better, I thought I’d be able to work today. I’m realizing that physical recover and mental alertness are NOT the same thing. I’m in a complete daze and am having so much trouble focusing. I wasted the entire morning in front of the computer doing….I have no idea what. Nothing to show for it.
Three meetings in a row took it out of me. Then I had to go to Dallas for a meeting and R offered to drive me. Well, his brain isn’t working any better than mine. We were late getting out of the house due to poor decision making. We got lost on the way because we couldn’t talk and drive at the same time apparently. By the time we got there, we were both stressed and late.
By the time we finished the meeting and started back home in rush hour, getting lost a couple of times–seriously it was ridiculous. I mean we have a GPS! and 2 iphones and 2 ipads and we couldn’t find our way back home!–we were so tired. Again fuzzy decisioning, we decide to go to a restaurant to get a spicy drink.
We get to the restaurant and realize the drink has too much sugar. So we go to the Indian grocery and then spend an hour trying to get tins to fit together. Don’t ask. Utter stupidity, but done with great concentration and dedication. At the end of this we are SO tired, that when we get home, I can’t even make myself get up to take my makeup off. Both of us are bone tired.
I was not prepared for this. I just thought if we felt better, we’d be back to normal. Apparently recovery takes longer than 6 days. Who woulda thunk?
