Yes, I know today isn't April 16, but it sure feels like it to me.
Before Tony and I were married, I worked at an accounting firm for almost 8 years (between two different ones). Things were always crazy busy from about mid December through Tax Day, April 15, and we'd often be working to the wee hours of the morning. It was physically and mentally draining, but we always pulled through.
Then.....the morning of April 16..... My body always knew it had gotten through the busy part and had some down time, and I'd always end up sick, usually something along the lines of a cold or sinus infection or something. I'd take off 1-3 days to recoup and rest up....then everything would be fine and dandy again.
Well, today is April 16. My body finally realized all the rushing and stress from the past several months (okay, almost a year since everything has been non-stop since our market season start last may) is over....at least for awhile. I woke up almost unable to move my head it was so congested. I am having a hard time keeping my eyes open. My arms are so tired they can hardly move. It's time to rest and recoup...as much as I can with two kiddos in the house.
Of course, I may have what Luke had....and what Susi seems to be getting since she's now complaning of her head hurting and being tired (it's hard telling with her since she "imitates" whatever else someone else is feeling...).
So, today is low keyed. Resting. Sleeping whenever I can while taking care of the kids.
