This is a common predicament.......I'm bone tired but not sleepy. Sleepy is such a wonderful place. Relaxed, barely able to keep eyes open, drifting on the open sea until such time when precious sleep takes me hostage.
Tired is different. Tired is a mind churning with thoughts, plans, scenarios, and worries superimposed on a body that aches for rest.
A half cup of old coffee (from this morning) warmed up in the microwave, a splash of sugar and milk to get me UP again so that I can go OUT and do my exercise routine for the day. Seattle is chilly but still sunny late this afternoon on the first day of daylight savings time.
Go, go now. I'm off.
