tiredness and work

Yesterday I meant to go out to the post office in the afternoon to get my ballot and some accident-related paperwork in the mail, but it was raining hard enough that I just didn't want to leave the house to run errands. The weather did break by early evening, which was nice as I had plans to walk over to Fremont to meet some KEXP-volunteer friends for dinner. That was a good time. About an hour after I got home, I felt really tired, struck again by the immediate urge to nap, and dozed for probably about 20 minutes. That was a mistake, apparently. After pulling out of my doze, still feeling pretty tired, I got ready for bed. But in the past few days I'd been staying up on the late side again, playing Torchlight, and sleeping later in the morning. So I spent the next few hours lying in bed, unable to fall asleep, through some combination of my later hours and the quick nap.

Despite not falling asleep until really late, some time after 4, I was up just after 9 this morning. One of my neighbors was expecting a package delivery today and asked if I could sign for it, so I knew I needed to be around in the afternoon. That meant I had to run my errands to the post office and store around midday, so I could be home later. I felt that was a good thing, really, because it ensured that I would in fact get out of the house in a timely manner to get my errands done. And then today I wanted to make an effort to tackle some items on the list, so getting the errands done first would put me in a good place to do some other work. However, after getting back from my errands, I had to talk to one of the other insurance companies involved in the accident, and then I was hungry enough to eat lunch. And then I settled down on the couch, wanting to start taking care of business, but I felt so tired from inadequate sleep and running errands that I simply gave in and napped for three hours. 

It's not a bad thing, really. I'm still recovering, things are still a bit messed up, and I did need the rest. But I do have some other pressing needs to attend to, and I'm getting anxious about that. There's still much to do and accident or no, I still need to get more work coming in.
