I have been feeling really, really crappy for the past couple of weeks. Part of it, I’m sure, is just plain exhaustion. School has been extremely busy, and at the end of the day I just feel so…spent. Like I have no energy left for anything. But I’ve also been getting bad headaches (like right now) and eating really lousy food because I don’t have the energy to worry about being healthy. Exercise is also out of the question because of how lethargic I feel. It’s been going on for so long that, normally, I would go to the doctor. But the flu is going around and I’m worried that I’ll end up doing more harm than good by sitting in the waiting room. Sigh. I’m going to make my best effort to eat super healthy and see if that helps, but if it keeps up I’m going to have to just cross my fingers and make the trip to the doctor.
Money-wise, things are really tight right now because of the looming holiday season. I decided that I definitely need to be making regular contributions to a gifts fund. I just hate being this stressed about money because of Christmas. Next year I want to breeze through the holidays without worries – that way I’ll actually be able to enjoy the season. Right now, I’m worrying over every cent I spend because I having nothing put aside. This is probably also contributing to my general malaise; stress has a way of making any bad health situation much worse.
Today I’m going to clean my apartment and run some errands as soon as this headache subsides, then tonight I’m chaperoning the homecoming dance at school. Tomorrow I need to grade some papers and plan a couple lessons, so at least I won’t be spending any money. I’m just not sure how I’ll be feeling 🙁
Hope you all have a fun weekend!
