Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These

The weekend, unfortunately for Kim, consisted of me sleeping, A LOT. I woke up on Friday about 11:30 AM, with a stuffy nose and body aches. As a result, I slept the entire day. I felt like I had a fever, but we did not have a thermometer to verify. I woke up around 7:30 PM when Robby called so the kids could say goodnight.

After our phone call, I moved into the bedroom, where I scrolled through my Facebook news feed for a bit before I passed out. I was up and down all Friday night and ended up having to get up for meds because my back was killing me.

Saturday was much the same; instead, I was up around 9:00 AM before I ended up crashing around 10:30 AM – 11:00 AM. I was up and down, listening for Kim, who had gone upstairs to lay down.

Finally, around 3:30 PM, I sent her a text message stating I did not mean to sleep the day away as I had. We then decided that it would be best to head home tonight rather than stay another night and be stuck driving 2 hours house. The consensus between … Read More

Look I Blogged– and Probably Fell Asleep

This month’s theme and really my story for the next 19 days is work. We are swamped due to the time of year, and it’s a miracle that I manage to get my head up for even just a few seconds.

Since I was out on Monday, I worked 4 hours last night to make up for it, and I will be working additional hours tonight to account for the shortage as well. I requested Friday off and had originally planned on making up those hours as the week went on, but I don’t know if that’s even possible now. 🤷🏾‍♀️

All I know is that I am drained right now; that’s been the theme all day– as in falling asleep as I’m trying to create the daily report that goes out every morning, so I am not sure I will be hopping back on tonight. Sleep sounds like a better alternative, but we will have to see.

As of now, I don’t have much left to give, so I think I will skip jumping back on tonight and try to catch some z’s… assuming my body allows me.

Wish me luck?

Life Happens

As seems to be the case in almost all my endeavors, my plans for yesterday were ruined by this thing called life. I ended up not feeling well and much of yesterday was spent with me in bed. I also ended up calling out of work today and doing much of the same.

I hope tomorrow I am feeling better because this is probably the worse month for me to call out. We are extremely busy and cannot really afford for anyone to be off work. That said, I am going to try and rest and hopefully tomorrow I am feeling much better. I almost didn’t blog today but pushed myself to do so.

Something’s Got To Give

Once again, I am doing poorly at ensuring that I am doing things that I enjoy. Work has become a constant and sucked me into its vapid waters with little chance of me making it to the top to breathe.

A large part of this is due to the current state of my office. It’s like a bomb went off, okay, not really, but to my Type A personality, it might as well have.

I keep telling myself I will get to it later, but inevitable, something more important comes up, so I end up placing it at the bottom of my to-do list.

I hope that since Kim has the kids this weekend, I’ll actually be able to get my office sorted, as it seems I’m able to do the rest of the house, and it’s the one place that’s mine that often gets neglected. Once again, I am pouring from an empty cup, and boy does it show.

I could happily pass out right now, which given my insomnia, is quite rare, but instead, I will be working on completing some of the work items I wasn’t able to tackle today because I am limited to working only … Read More
