A Good Night's Sleep

Friday, April 22, 2011

I've been going non-stop for about three weeks now with a bit of stress thrown in there. I went to bed about 10:30 last night after setting my clock for 6:30. (I've got a long to-do list again today.) I shut my alarm off, laid back down for what I thought would be just a minute, and woke up about 8:30. I couldn't believe it! I felt bad that I didn't get up with my daughter to help her get out the door for work. But, by the same token, I guess I needed the sleep. Now to get started on my list....

Busy Day Helping Others

Thursday, April 21, 2011

I've had a busy day helping others. I babysat this morning, helped my mother with her hair, took back a couple things to stores for my mom, bought some things for my daughter, etc. Now it's time to do things for me. It may take me the rest of the evening, but I will at least go to bed knowing I've accomplished a lot today. Haven't had a day like that in awhile - it feels good.

    I know what you mean--I've been helping someone all day--from my neighbor down the street who fell this morning to helping at church, and working today too! It's a blessing to be able to help someone who cannot help you back! It's been a great day and I am so tired! I believe I'll sleep really well tonight!
Hope you do too!

Life is Ever Changing

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

It seems like it has been so long since I've been wanting a "good scheduled" life: having a job that I at least don't mind going to, having a set schedule each day, being able to plan activities and being able to sleep well at least most nights. I haven't been able to find any of this since my temporary job ended in January. My work and sleep have definitely been erratic. My emotions have definitely been on that never-ending roller coaster ride. But, I'm trying my best to hang in there.

I've been busy this week so far. I'm applying for as many jobs as I can each day. And, at least I have Easter to look forward to. Some family will be coming over for dinner. So, I've been trying to get some of the cleaning done in the condo that I've been needing and wanting to do and that I've either put off or haven't had the time for. I just wish all this activity would enable me to sleep through the night at least one night. Maybe tonight will be the night!

    Yes, I hope tonite is the nite for you and you get a good sleep! I finally did last nite. My new granddaughter arrived yesterday a.m. and I agonized the whole nite and didn't get to sleep till 6:45 and had to get up at 7:30! Our contract allows for 2 personal leave days each year and I told boss I was taking mine, so I drove to city to see the new baby!!!! Feel much better, man was I stressed!!

    Patty you are always so busy about trying to get things organized. Please be careful not to become to overwhelmed by what needs to be done. I am glad that you are continuing to work toward your goals but would it be better to limit those goals to just a few smaller ones. Slow down and take a deep breath, decide what must be done first like the job applications. Take some time for yourself and put that in the schedule. emoticon

    Better luck with your sleep! I know that I can get off schedule and it is terrible trying to get back on. What works for me is to get into a nightly routine, but it sounds like that is hard for you to do right now, with your changing job schedule. Keep on keepin' on!

    emoticonI hope that your able to get some much needed sleep tonight! I know emotions can be a strong thing and can interrupt anyone's sleep! I had a hard time sleeping after 4am this morning. So what do I do? I get up and watch a Live Time movie! How funny is that?
Anyway, have a better day and be blessed! emoticon emoticon

Decisions

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Decisions can be very hard. And the decisions where you're not sure you've made the right choice are even harder. I decided to give up the low paying job that had me all stressed out. I was feeling fairly confident of my decision until the washer went out on me this morning. Now I am kicking myself. So now I go back to applying for jobs and saying lots of prayers that I get one quickly.

    Prayers for you to find one quickly and one that will pay the bills for you and not be stressful on you as well. Decisions are very hard to make and knowing if they are right or not is even harder. IMHO you made the right one regardless. You know what you want and need and I say go for that. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
