Yesterday we took the boys to the pool after church. The weather was wonderful. It was sunny and hot and there was barely a breeze to make mention of. We had a great time.

When I got home I felt completely and utterly zapped of all energy. I'd been fine at the pool but something happened between leaving the water and arriving at the house that changed all that.

In the evening, I could hardly function throughout our small group Bible study. I just wanted to climb in bed and sleep--for several days at least. I didn't feel sick, just exhausted. I was asleep before 10:30.

This morning was a lap swimming morning but, thankfully, my friend had pushed our time back from 6:15 to 8:00. When I got up at 7:30 I still felt like I'd been hit by a truck. While the swimming actually helped, I'm still feeling energy deficient.


No, I mean, really.

Am I dying of sun exposure or is this the new normal?

Three days left and counting...


  1. I hope there's not a magic switch that flips at 30 and robs us of our energy! I also hope you aren't getting sick or anything. I'll miss you the rest of the week. Have a great birthday weekend in CA!

  2. I get like that sometimes after a lot of sun. Could be you're getting a little cold too. I've had bouts where I never actually come down with any major symptoms, just go through a tired spell, maybe a little achy or a slightly stuffy nose then gone. Although if it starts happening too often you should go to the doctor.
