Working full-time is kicking my butt. If there is one part of my lupus that has presented itself more than any other, it is through the fatigue.

Prior to going back to work, I've always been a night owl. Even when I was pregnant and up through sleepless nights with a cranky newborn baby, I've always been fine without a lot of sleep. I have more energy than I know what to do with.


However, I am now crashing every night by the time the boys go to bed. I thought my 80 year old body trapped inside a 30-something year old body would catch up with the new routine, but it is taking more time than I anticipated. I never thought I'd ever admit that I am actually exhausted.

But, I am.

With that exhaustion, comes a lack of motivation to capture precious moments with my camera, and to extract creative words from my shut down brain. However, I am never too tired for Pinterest, friends. So here are a few favorites from this week...

What about you? Are you on Pinterest? Does anyone really do anything with their pins I wonder? I made a recipe this week. I'll share it soon. However, it really is just a place for me to zombie out and dream away. I hope you are each having a great week!

Much love,

I have tried a few recipes! Sorry you are so tired. Hopefully, spring break is around the corner for you and you can have a little time off.

I've done a craft or two and made a few gluten/dairy free recipes. This is how I justify the stupid amount of time I spend on the P. ;p

I understand the fatigue. I've lived it every day for over a year and a half. It's been a grieving process that my brain and body don't quite match up. But my compassion has grown. My surrender is more full. I hope that you are able to do what you need to and not push too hard.

I just joined Pinterest. And I'm just not that into. I'm just not a window shopper, I guess. But I like those orange stools.
