Feeling better

Generally I feel my worst in the morning right after I wake up. After I'm up for a while I start to feel better and then in the late afternoon/early evening I will feel really bad again. Usually right before I go to bed is when I feel my best and I get real optimistic about the next day being better. Usually I'm wrong. Last night I made myself a real healthy dinner and I did not eat any dessert. When I went to bed I felt pretty good. When I woke up I still felt pretty good so I think I may be on the mend. Dear Lord I hope so. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. For the last couple of days I get up around 5 and by 8 or 9 I'm back on the couch napping. After an hour or so I get up but then after lunch I'm back for another nap. Then by bedtime - 9 pm - I'm exhausted and can barely keep my eyes open. This is not right. But hopefully we are nearing the end of it. I think if I had just given myself time to be sick it wouldn't have lasted this long, but I really didn't. I get up early everyday for the animals. While I nap I don't stay in bed and rest all day. I have not been drinking enough water and I know that's a huge factor. I think it's just a combination of a number of factors. Hopefully I'll feel better soon.

The alarm clock we have in the bedroom is one of those smart ones that automatically adjusts for daylight savings time. Problem is, we don't do DST here in Hawaii. But my clock will not accept no for an answer. Every year it adjusts and every year I forget it does. I looked at the clock this morning and it said 6:something (I always keep it a few minutes fast) so I got up to feed the animals. As I'm working around I notice that the time on my phone is wrong. That's weird, I've never had that problem before!! Then I look at the watch on my wrist - it's only 5:00 am. WTF???? By then I had already started drinking my coffee so there was no going back to bed. I'm so glad I'm up super early on a Sunday and a day I'm not feeling 100% - yea for technology.
