Wordsmith

I'm coining a new phrase.

Stupid tired.

That's how tired I am. It's beyond exhaustion. I'm so tired it's making me dumb.

I have no idea why. I woke up yesterday morning after a good night's sleep and I was tired. I moved through the day feeling like I was underwater.

It might have been the heat. Beach people are used to about 80-85 degrees and a near constant breeze. Our homes aren't even built with air conditioning. On the rare days the mercury climbs higher than usual, our circuits fry. If the breeze isn't blowing, we twitch.

I don't know what's going on.

But whatever it is, I'm stupid tired.

Oh, I'm stupid tired too, for sure. But I know WHY I am (and will be for maybe another year or more). Sorry you don't have such an explanation. (Which isn't to say I'm sorry you're not pregnant, but you know what I mean).

My first thought was "that's how i felt when i was first pregnant..."

THAT is what I've been all week!!! Now I have a word for it.

Heat always has that effect on me. I've been living in our basement the last week, and that's just to flee from temps of 80-85.

Hope you're not getting sick or anything though. =(

Me too! I haven't been sleeping well since going back to work, and I am just exhausted.

Excellent phrase. Fits me right now.

I hate stupid tired. I hope you get rid of it quickly.

The epitome of stupid tired is when you're sure that the is spelled thugh. Yes, that really happened. To me.

I frequently get stupid tired. And stupid antsy, stupid lazy, stupid angry and stupid-stupid. It's kinda all stupid, at that point.

stupid tired is an excellent word. I made up a new one this week too. Happy Sad. Cause see, I'm happy for my friend that is moving cause it's a great job opportunity for her husband and she is excited and that is good, but sad because she is leaving and well, that is sad. Bitter sweet doesn't work, because it isn't bitter. It's happy sad. Or so I try to reason.

Really, it just makes me stupid tired to try and figure it all out.

Great blog. :)

I'm stupid tired, too. Right now. I'm beginning to think I'm pregnant.

I've been waiting for a proper description like that!

Yeah, doing the stupid tired thing over here, too. Desert people don't expect to have to deal with 105 degree temps AND humidity, but alas, it's raining all night and sauteeing us all day.

So, stupid tired it is. Well-smithed.

I was that way yesterday too. I also felt kind of like I had motion sickness. Ugh. I went to bed early and feel mounds better this morning. I looove beach weather. :)

LOVE IT! I live in sutpid tired land.

April said...

I feel like I'm thinking underwater sometimes....my thoughts are coming at me in slow motion...does that make sense? Or like my thoughts have to come through a bowl of jello to get to the tip of my tongue. Raspberry jello to be exact.

Hope you get over your stupid tired.

I've been stupid tired all summer! I think it's the heat or the lack of sleep. I can't decide.

I have a "flair" on my Facebook page that says "Can't brain today - I have the dumb."
I frequently have the dumb AND get stupid tired.

Mine is called "Gummy Eyed". You tend to get so tired that your eyes get all gummed up. Oh, I'm sure I have a lot of others, but none come to mind at the moment.

Thank you for sharing,
