This is a reminder to self that waking up really is a good thing. All this week, no matter what, my little one is waking me up at 5... an hour before I NEED to get up.
All this week, no matter what, I've been late getting out the door and getting to work.
All this week, no matter what, I've been so exhausted that I plan the workout I'm going to do on the way home but by the time I get there, I make some dinner and crash. Last night, I apparently fell asleep on the couch. When I woke up, it was 8:30, and my daughter asked me, "Did you sleep well, Mommy?"
A few minutes later, her father took her to brush her teeth and to read a story to her and put her to bed. I fell asleep while he was gone, and woke up when he asked me if I wanted him to turn the TV off.
Today is my 8th straight day without coffee, and although that does not mean I've gone strictly caffeine-free, I think part of my sleepiness comes from that abstinence. On top of that, I have just a bit of a headache whenever I'm... you know... awake. And when I sleep, I don't seem to sleep very comfortably. I've been achy, especially my back. I was doing some twisting as that partial warm-up to a workout I never got to, and realized just how twisty I couldn't be. My spine just seems a little too tight, these days.
I've been working to maintain some positive attitude, but I'm just so very bleh. The weather's been draining what energy I do have, because it's cold and rainy and all the things I remember hating about winter when I was young. Work has been slow, which means I'm just sitting and not even working on anything... and that gives me too much time to think about things I don't like and don't need to think about. Like this co-worker who came into the office I share, opened our closet, and took our can of Pledge. This was the other day--I was sitting at my desk when she did it!--and she still hasn't brought it back or even said anything about it. Of course, if she were going to say anything about it, she'd have said something before taking it, right?
She should never have even gone into our closet. And she went in like she knew what was in there... prompting me to start wondering if we need to be able to lock our closet, because most of the stuff in there is very literally ours--not the company's, but stuff we've brought from home to use here. And seriously? Who walks into the closet it someone else's office and just take stuff, when there are supply closets all over the place?
But I need to focus on less grudging things... Waking up really is good. Second best way to start the day--second because sleeping in all day seems like a WONDERFUL day.
