There is No Tired Like End of the Year Tired!

The day after the last day there is only one thing I want to see or hear. The inside of my eyelids and silence. The year long race is over. I can finally crash. And, I will. Hard. I may set a few records for most sleep at one time.  Forget the recommended 7-8 hours per night. I've got some catching up to do.  Don't call. Don't stop by. I won't answer. Sheer exhaustion has claimed me. I won't be checking email or text messages. At this point, I could care less.  I have no idea what is on TV so I won't be staying up to watch any of the end-of-the-season finales.

You want a hot meal? Use the microwave.  You want me to do the laundry? Turn your clothes wrong side out. That's the new style. I call it fatigues.  You want me to pick up something for you at the store? If they don't deliver, you shouldn't be doing business with them in the first place.  The pets want to be groomed? Train them to do it themselves. I'm checking out for a few days of R & R. I need some me time.

I don't mean to sound selfish or uncaring.  I don't mean to leave your stranded or lacking in anything, it's just that I've given all of me there is to give. I'm empty. I can't think of any cute or witty thing to say. In fact, I don't have one coherent thought in my head. It appears to be empty. Even smiling takes too much energy. I'm too tired to eat. Dressing seems like a huge waste of time since I'll only be up for a short time. And, for that matter why put on make-up or fix my hair.  I'm too tired to look at my own reflection, not that I would recognize myself anyway. Naps are really misunderstood.

I will return to normal. In a few days or weeks.  I will be vertical.  I will speak. I might have something entertaining to add to the conversation.  Smell that tantalizing aroma? I tried out a new recipe.  Do you love the way your clothes feel fresh? No more turning them wrong side out.
I'll return to the land of the awake, but right now all I want to do is sleep.
