I have a love/hate relationship with school holidays. I love not having to hustle anyone out the door early in the morning. I love the lack of school run. I love hanging out with the kids…
Except when I don’t. You know, because kids are incapable of amusing themselves. Or, perhaps I’m just really amusing, so they’d rather I do it for them. That can get difficult when they can’t agree on what to do. It can also get pricey if you don’t keep good track and mix up the free activities with the paid ones.
You can blame it on lifestyle, children, employment, a good book or occasionally binge-watching a series on Netflix. Whatever the cause, we all get tired. However, I’m talking about the next level in tiredness. I know I get to a point where I am no longer capable of even adding up how much sleep I have or haven’t had. That in itself should give me a clue but honestly? It doesn’t. I’m sure I’m not alone, so here is a handy list of ways to tell when you’re exhausted- with no tallying of hours required.
I want to tell you something. I feel like you will understand, even if you aren’t in the same boat. Why? Because what I want to tell you relates to a desire that we allhave. Something we all want.It’s something we hunger for, yearn for and yes, we need it. And no matter what I do, I just don’t seem to be able to get enough of it.
