WARNING: Wordy Post Ahead.
I have been sick or kinda sick since Friday. Not good for a Holiday weekend that I am scheduled to be "on-call" especially if being "on-call" actually means always working your bootie off all day both days. Thankfully, my house supervisor, the person that calls me in, knew I was sick and headed off the storm. I was actually home after 4 hrs on Saturday and didn't go in on Sunday.
But, when I "texted in" to my boss-lady at 0220 this morning- I bet she was NOT happy. Except that she didn't reply till about 0530, so I am betting she didn't get it till then anyway.
Ok, back to the sick part: my throat was kinda scratchy on Fri night when I went to bed, but when I woke up Saturday I couldn't even drink coffee- yowzer! It has only gotten worse, adding nose/sinus congestion and cough to the mix. Along with fever. I don't know what the deal is lately- but I am tired of feeling bad!
My sweet DH thinks that the stress that I am under between school and work are making nuances worse. I am starting to think that he might actually be right! (shhh. don't tell him!) I even caught myself attempting to bite my nails- a habit I broke a LONG time ago. There are just not enough hours in the day to do all the things I need to do. It seems like EVERYTHING is a priority. Another problem I am having is balancing priority.
I really have been trying to manage stressful things and add some balance by trying to focus on relaxation/stress-relief things at least once each day too.
-I have been trying to get enough sleep: at least 7 hours. That is usually sufficient for me, but lately I have no doubt that I could sleep for 12 and still need more. My sleep cycle is jacked up. I am in a rut- I know what has worked in the past to get it straight, but I don't have the time or energy. ie: go tan and workout early in the day! I always sleep better on those nights.
-I also have been trying to sew or do something sewing related every day. Even if it is just going in my room and straightening my pretty stash. LOL.
So here is a little picture show to balance this wordy post:)
Sew, till next time!
