Half Time

My dad coached girl's high school basketball for close to 30 years, so we used lots of b-ball lingo at our house. My dad used to say he needed a "half time" when he needed to rest, relax, de-stress, hydrate, get a pep talk and get out of his funk".

Well, I am needing a half time! I don't know what is wrong with me, but I am WORN OUT! I don't hardly have the energy to keep my eyes open lately.

I went to the endocrinologist today to have blood work done to see if my thyroid is out of whack again. I go back on Tuesday, as he was going to expedite my blood work. I just don't feel good. I'm tired and I am going to take a half time.

We are supposed to go to the Chinese New Year celebration tomorrow night and Paige is super excited, so I am going to rest tonight and tomorrow and see if I am ready to go back to "the second half" : )

Talk to you all when half time is over :) Have a lovely weekend!

PS- Gail and Kerri...I'm going to post about the award soon! I love ya girls!

Hope you feel better soon.
I started to take Vit. D cause I was feeling really sluggish and here in the north we are in the middle of winter so I don't get into the sun much. Hope it's nothing serious hun.
Take care of yourself.

Don't discount the fact that you are a teacher! That is one of the most energy draining jobs I know of. Good idea to take a half-time. Enjoy your break, Missy, and take care of yourself.

Super Mommy said...

Missy - please take care of yourself! Sending prayers your way for good results on your tests.

Meredith Teagarden said...

Oh no. Get some rest!

Kerry said...

OH Missy- I am so sorry that you are not feeling your best. I hope that it is nothing more than a good rest will take care of.

Vacation maybe! Or does winter blues have anything to do with it. I know I get really down and feel yuck from lack of sun and the Chicago weather. So hope that a good Half Time will do it.
And also sounds like you have lots on your mind- that does it too.
Hugs sweetie. And hope you feel better soon.

So sorry to read that you are feeling tired. ( I remember teaching-- those first grades can wipe you out!) Hopefully you are soon back to feeling healthy and peppy.

Hope you get some rest tonight and are able to make your CNY festivities.

Sorry you're not feeling up to speed....I left you a message (or email? can't remember) the other day and now I realize that we are (almost) neighbors, so I'm wondering where y'all do your Chinese New Year celebrating, b/c I may take Macy Li....You can e-mail me if you'd rather say there. Love your Paige in all her MAtilda Jane! Just ordered some for Macy Li, but its all too big.....Now, I'll just have to wait and wait to do my drooling.

Blessings,
Rhonda

I hope you are eating well Missy. I know you were dieting and sometimes we lose our energy from that. Please take care of yourself and take your vitamins. Maybe you are low in iron??

Anyway, I love you and will miss you and I hope half time is not too long......
