Tree down, decorations put away, Goodwill bags assembled, powder room painted and refrigerator cleaned out (a dark and dirty job). Stick a fork in me, I am done. Now it is "me" time. However, my energy is spent and my body and mind want to go into hibernation mode. "Me time" will not be exciting as there is no energy that I want to expand, no thoughts I want to think, no deeds I want to do. Nada, nothing, blank stares are all I have to offer.
Hibernate: to pass the winter in a dormant or torpid state. "Hibernate" I understand and can enjoy, but not quite sure what "torpid" means. It is not a word that I use in my everyday conversation.
So hubby comes home and says: "How are you Arleen?" Answer: "Fine, but feeling a little torpid today."
Torpid: having lost motion or the power of exertion or feeling. Benumbed.
Yep, that's me.
Do you think they might have a little pill for being torpid? Maybe if there was an anachronism for it, big pharms could market it. How about OOS (out of steam).
How ya doin'
