I had a teacher who made us memorize almost the whole Rime of the Ancient Mariner (so why don't I know how to spell "Rime...Ryme...Rhyme???"
I woke up about 2:00 a.m. and didn't have on my CPAP mask and realized I had forgotten to add water to the machine for a few days and yes, it was empty of distilled water. I added some and put on the mask again and slept pretty well for 3 more hours. (I don't remember taking the mask off but apparently was having trouble breathing with no moisture in there.)
Today I again would like to take a day off work but am forcing myself to go in spite of my devilish side saying, "Call in sick, call in sick." Today is hump day and I know I can do it. I have a ton of work piled up on my desk again and the day does go pretty fast. Just hope I can be more productive today than yesterday. Sharing a printer with people who take things off and put them in the bins I don't expect them to be in has been one of my problems this week. (I lost things and found things and couldn't seem to keep it straight...I think I lost an hour trying to figure out at least a dozen charts I was working on.....but today I know to get up frequently to check the printer. (It twill be good exercise, also!!!)
Some of the work I am required to do is just mindless (in my opinion) but I do need to stay alert so I don't make errors in people's charts. Getting up to get prints frequently should help me stay alert and help loosen up my stiff knees.
