Overdoing it

I think I might have been overdoing it lately. I've been getting up a little bit earlier than usual and working outside in the garden for a couple of hours every day or every other day and on top of that I've been walking Gozer. I was obviously tired and so Ian told me to be sure to nap today: to not do too much and to nap.

So I did. I went to sleep around 11am, thinking I'd lie down for a half-hour or an hour and I sort of half woke up around 1pm and woke up more fully around 4pm. I wanted to go back to sleep because I was so very tired but I dragged myself out of bed and took Gozer for her afternoon walk. I felt so weak and so tired and short of breath that the walk was a huge ordeal for me. I'd really, really wanted to go to metalsmithing class tonight but there was no way I could make it since I was so tired.

I hope that I'm feeling better for the long weekend because it's supposed to be so nice and I want to enjoy the beautiful weather. My previous plan for tomorrow had been to go out and do some weeding but now I think I'm going to sleep and rest as much as possible.

Boy oh boy do I know what it's like to overdo it, and yes, resting is the best solution. As much rest as your body needs :0
