mental exhaustion

I'm going to see if I can keep my eyes open long enough to write this post. I am mentally WIPED OUT. We had a big conference in town this week that I was slated to speak at twice... on top of constant meet and greet action that typically goes along with a conference. I was honored to be asked to speak but there is a lot of prep work involved... and with that comes stress. The past three days I have:
- gotten 16 hours of (really poor) sleep
- been running through statistics and bullets in my head constantly
- eaten less than normal (I've realized I am not a stress eater)
- been a grouch to Guy more than once because I was stressed
- tried to get away with not washing my hair because I was running low on time and it did not bode well

Thankfully it is all over. My sessions were productive and people seemed receptive and now I can catch up on emails and work. See below for what I wish I was doing.

Good news is that Guy and I leave for the Dominican Republic Friday!(imagine me jumping up and down squealing with delight... I'm doing it on the inside..I promise... ) I just need to make it through work today and tomorrow and then I'm home free.
Hope you're all having a productive Wednesday! I must now caffeinate.
