Caturday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Where the hell has today gone? I swear I was just getting up for the day a few minutes ago, and now it's already over. I think the only reason I'm still awake in the first place is because I've had a soda for the first time in a couple of weeks today, and it's got me all flustered like. It definitely has me more awake than I'm happy with for this time of day.

But I'm going to see if I can't remake the acquaintance of my bed. Good night, all.

Friday!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I need a dance for surviving the work week and making it to Friday evening. Yes, the weekend will, as always, be too short, but it's finally here. I can sleep in tomorrow. Maybe have a chance to get these dark circles under my eyes to some manageable levels. Or at least socially acceptable levels.

Other than that, I don't really have anything to say. I got caught up reading a new fic from [archiveofourown.org profile] Hazel_Athena, and now it's so stupid late in the evening that it's actually morning. Whoops.

I guess that means that I should try to pack it up and try out my bed for a few hours. Seeing as how I've reached the point in the night where my hands are spasming... possibly because I keep doing these little 2 second exhaustion drop-offs.

Anyway, good night, all.

Almost...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Two days into this newest medication for my joint pain, and all I can say for it so far is that it's not the hugest pill I've ever had to take. It does, however, get stuck in my throat more than just about any other pill I've ever taken. It requires so much liquid to get down. I do not like it so far, obviously, but if it decides it's going to help some of the pain, I'll put up with it. (I'll also gladly put up with the supposed "decreased appetite" side effect listed online for it. Yes, please.)

Tomorrow is payday, but mostly I'm just ready for the weekend again.

And yeah, that's all I've got (again). I'm gonna go crawl into my bed now.

Tired

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm so seriously incredibly tired today. Like every time I sit still for a moment or two, then all i want to do is sleep... and a lot of them, I almost have been asleep. But I don't feel rested, even on those times where I do fall asleep, so I will admit to beign a bit leery that it will be in any way restful to sleep in my bed tonight. b b

And Boo is now going to join me in typing. That's probably a good sign that it's time for me to go the hell to bed for the night, whether or not I have actually managed to accomplish anything. Later, all.

Early

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Gods, I am not looking forward to tomorrow. I have to be at work by 7:00, so I have to be on the train by 6:15 at the latest. Which means I have to be up stupid early, and I am not looking forward to it. Especially when I have do it all week. Because that's the downside of Glynda being gone all week: someone has to open, and I'm currently the one best trained for it. For a given value thereof, because I'm still trying to find out where things are kept and paperwork is store and what the hell is her organization system anyway and why do we need paper copies of everything that we already have electronic copies of. But whatever.

So much for my hopes of doing as little resting as possible while I had this mini-vacation. I'm pretty sure I passed out for a few hours with Boo on top of me today while [personal profile] katsuko was at work. Luci has spent most of the day alternating between hovering at the end of the couch and hovering on top of the TV stand. So that's been interesting.

I only managed to get a little bit of writing done today, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up on it yet. I've got the ideas: I just need the gumption to get the words going again. Or something. Things. Stuff. Words. I can't seem to make them happen even in journal entries. Fantastic.

Anyway, yeah, I'm gonna go recline here on the couch for a little bit longer, then I'm gonna go to bed, because I have to be up stupid early. Later, all.

Zoned

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm so tired, just enough exhaustion that I can't even see straight anymore. I've spent most of the day drifting in and out of a light sleep. It's pretty much exactly what I didn't want for my holiday weekend: to spend the whole thing sleeping, no matter how much my body may or may not think I need it.

That said, it was a nice relaxing day at home with [personal profile] katsuko and the kitty girlies and a lot of YouTube and a hair dying party. So, all in all, it was really nice.

I still have one more day of vacation left, but then I'll be opening the rest of the week: Tuesday with LaTrease and then Wednesday through Friday with Anastasia. [personal profile] katsuko is back to work tomorrow.

Anyway, yeah, that's it. Quiet day. One more of those then back to work. No Glynda for a week. Fucking yay. I'm going to try sleeping in my bed.

Tuesday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Somehow it's come back around to Tuesday. I'm not entirely sure how. All I'm certain on is that the month of August has disappeared in a cartoon-like rush, maybe even complete with the big dust cloud behind. I think I lost that comparison somewhere along the way. The point is that the month has flown by and I'm not sure I know what to do about it or anything.

I do know that I'm hella tired. I do know that I managed a good deal of writing today. I do know that I only have two more days of work this week. I do know that I have sweet kitties. And I do know that I'm going to go throw myself at my bed now.

G'night, all.

Tired again

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
And it's my first day back at work (like I actually ever left it). I feel like I could just drop at any minute... but at the same time, I know that, if I know go lay down, it'll still be another 45 or so minutes before I can go to sleep.

Work was... work today. I don't think we really managed to get busy today, not as far as testing in our location can get. I'm sure they're saving that for the days when I'll be opening next week.

I think I'm gonna go throw myself at my bed and see if I manage to stick to it.

Skill

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I wish I knew why I am so damn tired. Maybe it's the driving. Every time I shift, I find myself sort of waking back up, even thought I don't really remember falling asleep. I've found myself getting ready to respond aloud to things I'm hearing in this semi-sleep state. Like in this semi-asleep state, I'll be hearing (for instance) that I've been talking to Mum or Aunt Cathy or whomever; semi-asleep me will try to answer them out loud.

I feel like I've come back with an extra world in my head, which is sort of an odd thing to say, yes? I did get to bring back some delicious casseroles, though, which was really nice. Down inside my ears hurt too, but I think that might be the teeth making a long delayed reappearance at the Feeling Rough Olympics.

And I think that's it. I think that's all I've got to say. I need to go throw myself at my bed and hope for the very best. So, alas, no free more oddities to go in my symptoms and so forth, mainly because I'm freaking exhausted and I'm going to go this sleep thing. Good night, all.

Almost

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So I leave first thing in the morning for Albany. I'm not sure what the plan is going to be from there, but that's what we've gotten so far.

I can't seem to get enough "stay awake" ins me. Like, I find myself eyeballing snacks or stuff like that, and then I pass out for a few moments all over again, almost as soon the tought has left her head.

So, yes, I managed to get church is for that Np. But it's also going to be the plan to leave early in the morning, si we'll do something with both letters. Later, sw ewee or wso"

Whoops

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Behold the magic of backdating a post. I managed to pass the hell out and sleep through two or three alarms. I'm dating this for 11 PM or so, but it's really 3 in the morning. I'm not even sorry either. I feel a little closer to actually being rested. This is a pretty nice feeling.

I do have a super love-love Luci right now helping me type this up. We don't get a lot of Luci-Mama love-love time, so I think she's taking advantage. Or she was until Boo returned, and now she's maintaining her distance. They can't quite seem to decide which one of them is going to be the bully and which one of them is going to be pitiful.

At this point, I'm seriously just staying awake long enough for Scrivener to sync. The task is getting to be a bit difficult for my poor Ripley computer. When Chrome is open, opening anything else is getting a bit difficult for her, poor thing. Has anyone ever used the online store Mac Of All Trades? They have a few used Macbook Pros that I might be able to save up and afford, but I don't want to be throwing away my money on product that's just going to die soon, you know.

Better still, does anyone know a browser that's less of a system hog on OSX than Chrome? Opera has been suggested to me, but it still generates multiple instances in Activity Monitor, just like Chrome, and while I'm willing to just use Safari, I'm not the hugest fan of it.

Anyway, I'm going to go back to bed now. Later.

Meg

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So [personal profile] katsuko and I went and did the movie thing after she got off work today. She has been working The Meg at her theater a bit and wanted to be able to see the whole thing through... so we went to Aurora and watched it there. Good solid fantastic shitshow of the best variety: the kind of fun movie where you can shut off your brain and just enjoy. Decently done jump scares in it too, enough so that my watch decided to alert me about my heart rate a couple of times.

And yeah, that's been about it. I fully intended to do a whole lot of sleeping... and instead I did a whole lot of playing games on my phone. Whoops. Oh well. Maybe the sleep will happen while [personal profile] katsuko is at work tomorrow. Err, today.

Whoops. Good night, y'all.

Awake

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to stay awake long enough to type this thing up. I've already fallen asleep on the edge of the couch a couple of times so far today.

One more work day this week, and then I will happily spend the weekend sleeping. It has just been such a long week, with these early mornings and late evenings.

Next weekend, I'm going down to Cuthbert to surprise Grandmother on her 80th birthday party. This weekend, though, is going to be dedicated to sleep. I can't think of any plans I might have.

And I'm still jolting my way in and out of sleep, so I think I'll hie myself off to bed. Just one more day. I can make it. I can do this.

Another Wednesdasy

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Oh, thank all the odds: only one more day of this early morning bullshit. I'm so damn tired that I nearly can't see straight. I keep drifting off at the odd inopportune times, which isn't much fun either; there are more quiet times at work than there are very hard to stay awake through.

Very short post today. I can't seem to stay awake long enough to words. Good night, all.

Tuesday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Seriously, how is it only Tuesday? I honestly woke up this morning being glad that I only had one more da left to open.... but no! It just had to still be Tuesday, didn't it? I'm not even sure how it's only Tuesday.

It's been such a long day, and I need to go collapse and make myself sleep, so I can go collapse on my, s

Aad yeah, I'm going on to bed now, I'm hopeful that it might not get late before I pass out. I'm so damn exhausted.

Noooo

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Somehow my entire Sunday is gone again already?! How does this shit keep happening?

Okay, granted, today was a lot of a repeat of yesterday: feeling like I'm getting yanked down into unconsciousness. I'm still not sure if this is something to be concerned about or if it's just thanks to my general lack of sleep during the week.

Tomorrow through Thursday, I'll be opening at work. I've already been told that there is a strong possibility that we'll be secret shopped again. All I know is to be looking for a black man in his 50s: no idea what test or anything. I even made a point of telling LaTrease, "No offense, but I'm not opening ever again: too much of this shit keeps happening on days when I open".

Damn, but I feel queasy. I think I'm going to have to dose with some Pepto Bismol before I go to bed. I know part of it is, sadly, the fact I'm hungry, which is a pain.

Anyway, I'm going to see if crashing will help with any or all of this. See everyone tomorrow.

Saturday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I think I accidentally reenacted last Saturday, almost to a "t". Every time I sit still for more than a few minutes at the time, I feel like I'm being violently thrown into sleep. And since I'm trying to get writing done, I am definitely sitting still for more than a few minutes at the time. It's not a thing I'm enjoying because it's hitting me in the productivity.

It also makes me feel like I'm wasting my days off, and since I have to open Monday through Thursday next week, I would rather not feel like I'm wasting any more of my time away from GSU. There are, after all, some Mondays where it feels like I came home long enough to change clothes before going back. Which is obviously not cool.

That said, I'm not sure how much more awake I've got left in me. I keep feeling like I'm going just pull a full on pass out like this:

And I don't want to do that again, if I can help it.

So... good night, all.

At last

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Seriously, guys, I thought I was going to go quietly out of my mind waiting for 5:15 today. Then it wasn't any better, because I still had to walk to the train station in the heat, take the train all the way home, take a Lyft home, and then I could finally relax... which pretty much involved laying on the couch and playing games on my phone for hours on end. Such an exciting life I lead. I sure know how to rock a Friday night.

Okay, maybe not as much as [personal profile] katsuko who is asleep on the other end of the couch again. No shock there. Boo is reclining. Luci is sitting on the arm of the couch, getting her butt scratched like she likes. All in all, this is an exciting household.

But mostly, I'm just tired and hungry and wishing I had some damn peanut butter to snack on. I guess technically I do have some, but it's extra crunchy and I only like creamy. (First world problems, huh?)

Anyway, I guess I'm going to make myself go lay down so that [personal profile] katsuko can stretch out on the entire couch. Good night, all.

Thursday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm finally actually tired. Like, I'm legitimately drifting in and out of consciousness as I sit here, and that's probably a sign that I need some damn sleep. And yet, at the same time, i'm a little worried that it'll end up being like last night and the night before: I'll go back the hall, I'll lay down in my bed... and nothing will happen for an hour or more. And that's a pain and a half. I don't need to keep waiting on sleep until the weekend.

That said, I think I'm going to go ahead and give it a try. Otherwise, I'll just sit here and keep rereading our older Mag7 fanfics.

Later, all.

Wednesday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
How the hell is it only Wednesday?! I swear this week is fucking dragging by, and I don't like it. I'm ready for this week to be over. I'm ready to have a few days to myself, with just [personal profile] katsuko and the kitties around. The girlies are still behaving themselves, able to tolerate being in the same room for more than two seconds at the time. Luci has pretty much quit chasing Boo, and Boo is hardly hissing at Luci at all lately. (Enough so that I was able to migrate Boo's dishes and litter box out of my bedroom and back into the rest of the house. Yayz!)

It only took them a year.

I managed all of an hour and a half's sleep last night. I need to make myself fall asleep faster, but I really don't want to have to drug myself to do it. Maybe last night's lack of sleep will translate into me falling asleep earlier tonight.

Finally, I have a freaking headache, and the lights hurt it, and sounds hurt it, and smells hurt it... and every time I get a cramp hurts it. Maybe sleep will help with that too, because I have no good way of calling out of work any time soon. Glynda is out all of next week (so I'll probably be opening again, though hopefully not working open to close again too), and I still need to find out if my schedule will change any next week or not.

Anyway, yeah... I'm going to sleep if laying down will help the head or anything else. Good night, all.
