My daughter is 10 and she never seems to be tired even though she regularly moans, “I am so tired.” Today, she attended Jr. Lifeguard Camp where she learned CPR and how to save someone from drowning. She had to jump in the pool and drag out a lifeguard who pretended to be in dire straits.
I picked her up at the waterpark after six hours of camp and headed immediately to the doctor for an appointment where the doctor questioned her and listened intently in an effort to figure out why her ankle hurts sometimes. (Likely diagnosis: Tendonitis.) The x-ray results will confirm the diagnosis tomorrow.
Anyway, after that, we returned home for a short time where she changed clothes again. Time for soccer practice! While she practiced, I read in the car.
It was nearly 8 PM when we got home and I took a quick nap before working. While my daughter avoids naps at all costs, I try to nap whenever I can.
My daughter finally drifted upstairs and went to sleep. She has camp again in the morning. She will be groggy when I wake her at 7:30 AM but not as groggy as I will be.
My husband’s gone to Minnesota for a week’s worth of meetings. I’m home as usual working, driving kids here and there, doing laundry, occasionally grumbling, and wishing for more sleep.
And that’s why there’s no time to write anything decent in this blog.
