Tired doesn’t even begin to describe it. I didn’t know that using your brain could be so exhausting. Given the alternative, I’m glad I’m at my new company but why do I have to be so tired all the time??? At the rate I’m going, my bedtime is going to be 8pm so I can have enough rest to get up at 5am and go to the gym. Going after work is simply NOT going to happen… and hasnt’ for almost two weeks.
Even worse…. we’ve got a yellow air quality alert and I feel crappy all the time. oy.
I talked to a wonderful lady yesterday who brought up something I’ve thought for years… She told me that we have the work week all flipped around. We should work 2 days per week and be with our families for 5. I told her even working 4 and being off 3 would be better. By the time I get to Sunday I’m just starting to finally wind down. I hit Sunday evening and all I can think is “WAIT! I’m not ready yet!”
The heat is sapping my energy too. It’s now into daytime highs in the 90’s. The lovely, cool rainy days are gone and we’re left with hot, dry baking weather. If I were a cookie it’d be fine, but I’m not and this weather sucks.
Even just sitting here, in the morning air, I’m already hot and sweaty. Work is air-conditioned, but sometimes it isn’t quite enough.
Time for a cool shower and some light clothes. I think I have enough energy to make it to the door of my work building… stagger inside… and crawl to my desk. I have a beastly 9am call that I am NOT looking forward to. Yay for me.
Cheers from an exhausted moonfire
