Oh. My. Poor. Tired. Body.

Day 6 was harder. I’m not sure why but I’m leaning towards the fact that it’s a Monday. For some reason, I have never really gotten along with that day of the week. It could also be because I am dealing with a bit of a stomach virus, but I like blaming everything on Mondays, so that’s what I’m sticking with.

Even though my sleepy mind complained in the beginning, I completed my routine. I’m hoping that I will sleep better tonight and so is my husband. I was a tad bit on the cranky side this morning. Okay, maybe more than a tad but not full-fledged evil either. So that’s an improvement!

I think watching TV during this whole process has helped. It takes my mind off of the details that bog me down, like how much longer I have left or how far I’ve gone. So I picked a great series to revisit: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s well within the genre I write and has wonderful quips to entertain that part of me that enjoys sarcasm so much. (Oh come on – you know Josh Whedon rocks so don’t give me any grief!)

Now, if I could conquer that whole “getting up with a smile, full of energy and good spirits” thing then I might be truly making some progress!
