Overtime

Saturday, October 25, 2014

Well this past week was my first week working over time. I clocked in 60 hours at work including some today. I'm tired.....really tired and was sitting most of the week but I feel good at the same time. I feel bad that I have not been on here checking in on my teams and what not but I've been busy. A good busy I like to think.

I am not sure how much over time I will work next week as it is being offered again but I am not sure how much my body can take. Even at a sit down job working that many hours takes a lot out of me. I'm just not used to it any more.

Oh well. I am doing much better emotionally so I am happy.

Tuesday blues

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

For some reason today is a crabby depression high day for me. I don't know why either. I may not be loosing weight since I started working but I certainly feel better about myself. Those with depression will understand this but I am taking better care of myself. Showering more often and actually fixing up my hair most days. Granted I kinda have to do something with it as I am going to work now but honestly if I didn't care I could just pull it back. But I have been leaving it down and letting it get currly. It feels good to care about how I look. Not my weight looks but over all appearance as in do my clothes match how does my hair look that type of thing.

Today although I showered and did my hair I feel a little blue. Is it cause it is Tuesday? Is it due to lack of sleep? I just don't know. I told my co-workers to watch out on days like this I have a short fuse and tend to snap easily. My kids understand when Mommy is in this type of mood she tends to yell first as questions later. I hate days like this.

I have been told the fact that I recognize this is a good thing it is a step in the right direction but it doesn't make the feeling go away.

Work is going well we are still learning things so it is slow going, but it's not bad. During the down time while we are forced to wait I get to post on here and look in on my teams so that is a good thing. I do wish I had more energy and could go for a walk in the evening or something cause I need to find a way to get my step count up.....Well thats it for today. Thanks for reading.

    I have depression and truly understand where you are coming from. My comfort zone is the bathtub as it takes me to a place away from reality

    My vote is lack of sleep. As someone who suffers from depression, I can say that I'm far worse on low sleep. Nothing seems possible vs. getting enough sleep when things start to seem possible.

Yay for you for taking care of yourself! We need it!
And thank you so much for stopping by my blog today :)

Welcome Monday

Monday, October 13, 2014

So it's been over a year now since my surgery's to my ankles. I have been wearing heals to work and it feels good. My left ankle isn't always so happy about it but thats ok it's doing good all things considered. Well this morning I wittnessed an accident and after stopping and of course looking both ways I ran accross the street to see what I could do.

Did you read that?

I ran across the street. And when a nurse stoped to help and mentioned she had left someone in the car ( I thought I heard a kid) I even ran to her car to check on him. In heals I ran.....didn't realize that I had until later. My ankles don't hurt I am so happy. Course I am even happier that I didn't fall flat on my face but still. I am sorry that it took an accident for me to try to run but it did.

On the more up side I continue to feel like I am sleeping better each night. But I am keeping my husband up more with my apparent snoring. I never used to snore but now I do and we think it is what has been keeping me up at night. I am still snoring according to him but I feel like I am sleeping better.....at least until the weekend.

All last week I didn't feel like I needed a nap during the day but come Saturday I could have slept all day and almost did. So not sure what that is all about. Well time to start the work day and all so I want to wish everyone a great week.

  


Welcome Friday

Friday, October 10, 2014

It's Friday.....

And after my breakfast as soon as I got to work I have opened up a soda. It's my morning....ok....all day coffee. I don't really like coffee so I drink soda....most specifically Mountain Dew. I know I know the worst of all of them. I can't help it. I need the caffine in the morning. Not that that makes it right but if I could just have the one and be done it wouldn't be so bad but I have an open bottle on my desk all day at work. I start with 2 bottles and usually only have those two at work and maybe a can at home. I really need to stop or at the very least cut back.

But other than that things are going well. I am getting used to going to work every day again and seem to be sleeping better. Although my husband has had to start sleeping in the other room cause apparently I started snoring......and snoring a lot and loudly. Not happy about him being in another bed but understand the reasoning. He has to get up for work just like I do. And as there are nights his snoring keeps me up I understand his frustration. Just wish that there was something that I could do to stop snoring. I never used to. He said that some nights it's not just snoring that I sound like I an choking in my sleep. That doesn't sound like a good thing to me. He even said that he has tried to wake me up to get me to roll over but I don't remember it.

Oh well. After today is the weekend. And that is always a good thing.

  


1.5 weeks in

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

I have been back to work for 1 1/2 weeks now and although it's mostly just training and therefore a lot of waiting to get access and what not I am enjoying myself. For the most part I seem to be sleeping better at night. Not all the time but most of the time. My husband said that it's cause I have purpose now or at least a schedual. Either way I am in a better mood.

I decided to wear my contacts today just cause I wanted to and it's a lot of adjusting......teaching my eyes to unfocus or focus on close up things. It should be interesting as I am on a computer all day long.

I need to figure out anther drink. Every morning I stop by the gas station and get 2 soda's. Now those soda's last me the whole work day....sometimes even the whole day but still. Worst part is it is more to just have something to drink than the sugar or caffine. Although with this sore throat the soda helps a lot but thats not the point. I really need to quit.

Well thats all for now I just wanted to check in with everyone.

    I had a soda struggle for awhile too - have finally gotten onto the water bandwagon! Need to work on my coffee intake next, LOL!

Best of luck with nixing the soda! We believe in you! emoticon

    Focus on hitting your water consumption each day. The more you direct your focus there the less you will think about soda. Actually I found that by the time I drank all that water I no longer felt like having a soda. Keep positive and believe in yourself! Hope you have a great day....think Water!!!!!!!!

    It's hard to quit the soda and all the sugar. You will find a way.

Have a great day!
