    I feel so lazy at the mo, I feel drained, think bubba might be gong through another growth spurt and taking all my energy, I hate waking up in the morning, its such an effort to get up, it doesnt matter what time I go to bed.

    I feel guilty though coz I feel like Im glued to my laptop and my little girl amuses herself, I do play some games with her and she is happy.
    I have quite a few things I could be doing but some involves cleaning and I just cant get the motivation, my house isnt dirty but I should really clean my kitchen cupboards etc but that means taking everything out, what an effort and my sofa covers need washing (I have a cream and beige material corner sofa), its not in dire need of doing but takes about 5 loads of washing in the machine, it is a real task.

    Does others feel like this? We decorated a few rooms the other week but I just never seem happy with what I have, I always see that there is something to do

    You're not alone hun! I have phases of being super-motivated and long stretches of just not being able to do anything. I have an exam in less than two weeks and have done almost NO revision for it. But I don't even care!

    I do generally feel better on the days I manage to do my yoga DVD. Having said that though, I did it this morning, but I also had a lot of walking to do when I got into town and this afternoon I feel like a zombie :-(

    I hope you feel better soon, try and do something active that you can get some enjoyment out of for an hour and see if that helps.

    I feel the same too! It's all I can do to drag myself out of bed to go to work in the morning and I've been going to bed not long after dinner, but still feeling shattered! I even had a sleep on the floor at work the other day during my lunchbreak and di actually feel a bit better for it!

    Funny you should write this, as I was just this minute looking on the internet for local house cleaning services because I just cannot be bothered to do anything round the house. Once I get home from work I feel pooped and have no energy to start on all those irritating cleaning chores! Will convince DH it is a good idea as the mw says my bp is raised and I need to rest....

    I still have no idea how our grandmothers did it. My Grandmother had an acre garden plot, a house to care for and she still did it. I envy anyone with alot of energy right now. It just doesn't seem fair.
