A Day of Rest

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I am so exhausted, although I'm going to church for the morning service, I'm not going tonight and will be back in the bed at 7 pm for another 10 hours of work tomorrow. I've been getting up at 3 am to go in and work til 3:30, then I come home and crash HARD! My body is exhausted!

On the positive note I've lost weight this week, due to the extreme physical work I do. I pushed these lines full of clothing, around bends, curves, and long distances for 10 hours. I ache from my head to toes, especially my hands and feet. I plan to take it easy, but find it a struggle to walk or grip anything without pain. Even typing this my left hand is shooting pain up my arm, but I have to give the muscles time to rest. They gave me a hand brace yesterday because the pain was so severe. I am praying so hard for a new job in 2013, but for now to pay my bills I must press onward!

well I'm off to get ready, I will write a little more when I get home and settle in for an early night....

** Update **
I had a wonderful time at church, although I found myself sitting more than I normal do while playing my guitar. I was just blessed to be able to go. I came home and my husband told me to rest until bed. He got the laundry going, the kitchen cleaned, the dog bathed, all those things that mom does on a normal basis, but with all the overtime I"m just run down. I have to be in the bed at 7 to get up early so I'm eating a light dinner then I will shut things down and just rest for the next 2 hours! I pray you all have a very blessed week, I will try to check in when I can this week!!!

    Please be careful at work and please use the brace they gave you. I used to work in a clothing factory and it was my job to sew pockets onto pants and just after a year tehre I hurt my tendons in my left arm bad enough that it was recommended that I never do any sort of repetitive movement for a job again. It seriously limits what's out there. But I was foolish and didn't want the brace on cuz it slowed me down and being on piece work I wanted to go as fast as possible. It's all good til your body rebels...cuz if you ignore it long enough, IT WILL REBEL!!

    God's blessings to you. Lord I pray for Angie to have the rest she needs tonight so that she will have energy to do her job tomorrow. I also ask that you will help her in finding a more suitable job for her needs. Give her your Grace Father, and bless her richly. Amen.
