For the last four days, sleeping has been a bit of a challenge. Mostly, I wake up in the middle of the night, usually around 3:00am, then drift off around 4:00am, then an hour and a half later, it is time to get up for the work day. This is stress induced from mostly from my work, as inventory is this week, and partly from the weather, as it is freezing out, and very dry. So, add these all up, and sleeping becomes impossible.
I envy the Sleeping Mermaid I bought a few weeks ago, she sleeps through anything. She does not care about anything, as she sleeps on her lily-pad, so peaceful and happy. To sleep like that, I can only dream about it, well maybe not dream, but I envy her nonetheless.
Anyway, hopefully after Friday, it was all change, and my life will go back to normal, and I can sleep again without any stress. Most of my paperwork is finished, and to my knowledge, most of the outstanding issues are corrected at my work. And for the record, almost all of these corrections are what I inherited when I took on this job.
The best part of the week was when I had dinner out with Suzette. We went out yesterday for dinner, and of course, I took her out, but we went in her car. Nonetheless, it was awesome to spend an evening with her, not worrying about anything else in the world, including the dishes. We did Chinese, stuffing ourselves full, and believe it or not, I was still full the next morning. Must be the weather.
Maybe I need my own lily-pad to sleep on…
