I'm Tired. Really Tired.

Do you ever feel like you have so much to write, that you're too overwhelmed to actually write it? And then it just builds up and builds up until it's EVEN more to write and you're even MORE overwhelmed? That's where I am.

And the bad news?

I'm too tired to tackle it tonight.

Forgive me, dear readers.

I was overly ambitious today I felt better when I got up this morning, so I jam packed my day full of activities, because, lets be honest... I was sick of sitting on my butt. Recovering from this surgery has convinced me that the life of laziness is NOT a life of luxury.

I got up early, fed Peyton her breakfast (which Bryan has been doing for the past week). I did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, took a shower, got ready to go out, went to the post office, stopped by the grocery store, came home, fed Peyton, fired up the stove tops and whipped up a gourmet dinner.

Despite the fact that I pushed it a little too much...
DINNER WAS GLORIOUS
I made Flat Iron Steak with Balsamic Reduction (quick side note, if you choose to make this dish, add about 1/2 cup of chopped grape tomatoes and add them just after you add the Balsamic vinegar... DELISH!) 

And then for my father, who just happens to hate steak... (it's a texture thing, he says) I made him his own Garlic Fried Chicken .
French Garlic-Butter Green Beans and Sun Dried Tomato Toast on the side... and Pecan Pie for dessert. Mmmm Mmmm good.
All in all, it was a great dinner.

But after all that work, I'm exhausted. And simply too tired to blog.

How sad is that? Especially considering the below facts:
1) I've already written a normal sized post. 
So much for my "too overwhelmed to write" bit.
2) Blogging doesn't take all that much work... 
...just your fingers have to move.

But to sum it all up, I'm absolutely exhausted and my first real day of feeling "recovered" and back to my normal life has left me RUNNING back to my resting place.. the couch.

I'm quickly headed for bed sores.

Surgery, you have bested me.... for now.
