On Tuesday I received my latest IV. I was expecting to have energy, and boy was I not disappointed! I didn’t have much to do that day, but still didn’t stop until dinner time. I felt energized that night, and even stayed awake watching tv with my husband until 10! That’s big for me, considering that just a few months ago I could barely stay awake to see the kids off to bed.
I had 2 yards of good soil delivered Tuesday afternoon, and knew that on Wednesday I needed to get the soil in the containers and get my plants in the ground. I’m late in planting as it is, so can’t waste any more time. I also knew that if I didn’t get the dirt in now, when I knew I would have at least some energy for a short time, it would not get done. I want this garden so that I can have fresh fruit and veggies this year and not worry about where they come from.
It took me almost 3 hours to move the dirt. Probably around 12 wheelbarrows full. All on my own. It was cold and stormy. And guess what? I did it!!! And I only dumped 2 of the loads on the ground by accident. 🙂 I also was able to get most of my plants in the ground. It took me 4+ hours of solid work before I was done. Then I had to pick the kids up, take them to piano, dinner, and then swim lessons, before I could come home and relax. When I finally did sit down, I still felt energy. My eyes and head felt tired, but my insides still felt energized. Amazing enough, I wasn’t ready to just crash yet, which I thought might be the case. I knew that on Thursday I probably would, but it was worth it for that time, so that I could get this huge project done.
When I did wake up on Thursday, my eyes and head still felt tired and heavy. I expected that. But I had a hard time settling down and just relaxing. I tried to take some time, but my feet and insides were still going. Wow! I didn’t expect to still have energy 2 days later. Maybe the IV’s are starting to do some good work, and building up in my system like what the doc said they would. Hooray! I went back outside and did another hours worth of work on my garden. Then I picked the kids up, and did more work, including a fantastic dinner! It is currently after 8:00pm, and I’m still going. I feel like I could crash soon, my muscles ache from yesterday, and I probably will sleep very well tonight. But, I’m just psyched that it seems my energy is coming back, and is more consistent.
Sigh………maybe life can get back to normal…….maybe.
