Things I Want to Do In a Day

by Hannah the Zebra

Not necessarily in order:

  • Sleep (yes, I want to do that before I even get out of bed.)
  • Eat
  • Sleep
  • Talk with my husband
  • Walk the dog
  • Sleep
  • Exercise
  • Go to appointments and/or run errands
  • Sleep
  • Eat
  • Tidy
  • Practice at least 30 minutes
  • Read
  • Work on the blog
  • Sleep
  • Eat
  • Watch a show
  • Talk with my husband
  • Sleep for a whole night without waking up (which never happens)

And……… well, you get the idea. I don’t sleep that sporadically during the day, but that’s an understatement of how often I think about it. And many days I need 10 – 12 hours of sleep a night. That doesn’t leave much time to get anything done during the hours I’m awake. If I have appointments on a given day, that often exhausts me all by itself, and nothing else really gets done. What between the Chronic Fatigue of the Fibromyalgia and the Chronic Fatigue of an immune deficiency, I don’t begin to have enough energy for everything else on the list. So I pick and choose. But all too often, other than eating, sleeping, walking the dog and talking with my husband, I don’t have energy for much else. And sometimes I can’t even walk the dog. And I sure wish it were different. I really, really wish it were different.
