Oh goodness I am a sleepy office body today. I went to bed nice and early last night…just before 6pm, and fell into an active, non-restful sleep. I woke at…2 (?) and was then stuck awake until 4 am. Although my combined hours are technically enough sleep to keep me going, having broken sleep like that makes me twice as tired as I would be had I not slept at all.
I first noticed it when I was driving Colt to the sitter’s to catch his school bus with her gang. I wasn’t feeling unfocused but I kept drifting too close to the side of the road and was surprised when I kicked up a huge road sand/salt storm each time. As I got closer to work it got worse until now, where it’s 9:12 am and I’m already fighting to keep my brain connected and conscious. I’m already having trouble seeing clearly but the docs who have checked on that part of me have said that it’s just pressure from my locked muscles on my optic nerves. No one has ever offered a solution to that, but many were quick to call it.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I stopped for a green tea and a breakfast sandwich to make sure my body had some energy to burn though, I have my window open to the cool, pretty morning, music playing softly in the background. Should be in pretty rough shape by noon. *sigh* (lol…gotta laugh where you can I suppose!)
I might run across the road and pay a ridiculous price for one of those Monster energy drinks but they do not get along with my stomach at all. Risk/benefit again. Everything seems to boil down to that, these days.
OMG I just nearly dumped my tea directly into my keyboard. (Meh. What do I care? They’re not going to use it anyway once I’m gone. I like to get those ergonomic keyboards once in a while because no one will ever steal it…lol
Holy smokes I’m tired. I feel like I took an elephant sedation dart to the neck and I’m not flailing my limbs about in an effort to stay alert and able to flee or fight should danger happen by. I soooo can’t wait for Monday where this will likely not happen anymore. Having people coming by every few minutes and sharing an office with someone will keep me on my toes and not passing out, I hope. haha…
Ahh damnit. The girls here in my department just found out tomorrow is my last day. They want to take me out for lunch, which is so lovely, but I had hoped to give that one a miss. Ah well…these little social functions are a necessary part of life around here. They used to have a potluck every time it was someone’s birthday here, which was not bad, but when I worked for a clinic, years ago, they were awful! People would all stand there sipping their weak coffee and eating the slice of banana bread someone baked and brought in silence. No one liked each other and no one would talk…it would get deadly quiet and all you could hear was chewing until someone thought of something to say.
“Ohh! Hey, you have a kid! How’s your kid/wife/husband/mother in law/etc?”
“Did anyone see how nice it is out today. I hear rain for the weekend though…” *yawns*
I never understood why people force themselves to be social with people they don’t like. It’s much easier to establish and maintain a collegial, professional relationship and leave it at that. All the extra BS is just a frustrating waste of everyone’s time.
Well, back to work for me! Only two days left of this crap and then I get a fresh start. I can hardly stand to wait two more days… 😉
Have a good one guys. xx
