I could feel it earlier this week. It started with a few sneezes and a restless night. My only prayer was that my body would hold out until Christmas Break.
It did…and that was it.
3:00 PM and I’m heading to bed. The cold has finally caught up with me, and now is a great time to recover.
Let me tell you how last night functioned…
Got off work at 4:45 (stayed late to cover for a teacher). Grabbed dinner to-go from my friends place, and arrived home around 6:30. Finished dinner at 7:00, and fell asleep, while talking to Darco, not waking up until 9:00. Left the couch at 9:00, brushed my teeth, and went directly to bed.
It’s currently 4:30 and I’m wide awake. I’m not complaining because this is precisely how my week has been, just overwhelmingly exhausting. I honestly wonder if my body is wiped from fighting off the recent flu that’s been going through the school, or from dealing with the stress of our recent financial shortfalls.
Either way, I don’t feel guilty for finally getting some much needed rest.
Amazing what a solid eight hours of sleep will do for your attitude…
Got off work
Picked up Darco
Installed MC’s router
Fell asleep (myself, Darco, and the cat) around 8:30 PM
Woke up at 11:15 PM
House is now silent
I think we needed serious rest
I was able to accomplish the sxheduie from yesterday. In turn I found myself sleeping through the night without moving once.
Now I’m just trying to wake up…
Only day this week I head straight home after school. So much to do, so little time.
Maybe the weather? The snow? The cold? Whatever the case is I’m struggling to function today. I barely had a “deep sleep” last night, and that alone nearly KO’d me today at school.
I have a million things I need to do, but that element of movement…my body just refuses to comply. This is going to make tomorrow night very difficult for sure I’m afraid, but tonight…
To be real: It just isn’t happening.
You know how it is, your body goes through a repeating task enough times to adapts to the unique environment it’s in.
For Example: Let’s say I get up for work at 5:30 AM, Monday through Friday and 4:00 AM on Saturday. What time does my body ‘wake up’ on Sunday?
Right around 5:00 AM.
Hence me typing this out…
