I am the kind of tired where I really hope I don’t have to operate heavy machinery, use fine motor skills, or think. I might need to have a warning label slapped across my forehead or something.

Not that the fatigue is unexpected. We spent the weekend in Indian Wells celebrating my dad’s birthday. Any time there is travel plus a family gathering, the inevitable result is exhaustion. (It was a great time and I think my dad felt celebrated.) The plane last night was delayed so that we got home some fuzzy time between 11 and midnight, which is extremely past my bedtime.

I can’t fix planes that run late, but I am going to fix what I have control over. Which is: alcohol. I’m not a big drinker under normal circumstances, but with all the celebrating, I drank more than usual over the weekend and I think it messed with my sleep. I’m taking a break. No more gin and tonics. No wine with dinner. No cold bottle of beer. At least for a while, until I’ve rested up again.
