Most will agree that I’m a pretty energetic person and not much of a whiner but I’m telling you . . I do not think I’ve ever been so tired in my entire life! I’ve slept in so many different beds over the past almost month. If I’m counting correctly, and I’m probably not, I’ve not slept in my own bed for 26 nights.
This is the sun rising over Baton Rouge, LA. Getting to bed after midnight, getting up early, not to mention losing an hour, and doing workshops all day . . I’m beat! This is the point where I say . . why am I doing this?
We left Baton Rouge Sunday evening, drove to Lake Charles where I had planned to spend the night at mom’s and get up and leave for home on Monday morning but I said . . heck, my stuff is mostly in the car. Yes, I’m dead tired but I can make it three hours to a decent hotel so I threw the rest of my stuff in the car, grabbed a Dr. Pepper and hit the road. I forgot how dark and lonely the back roads through the piney woods of east Texas are after dark and I was very glad to get to the hotel . . especially after seeing the deer standing on the side of the road looking like they were watching for some vulnerable little old lady to dart out in front of and scare the heck out of her.
Mom said .. don’t make any rash decisions; go home and rest but seriously, this traveling and leaving my husband and dog and chickens behind . . I just don’t think it’s my cup of tea. Chad isn’t included in that list because he’s so rarely home but I do miss him too.
We’ll see how I feel about all this next week . . as I’m packing for the next trip!
