I am exhausted from working double shifts this week. During the days, I am a "recreational therapist" for adults who have developmental delay issues. Today was an easy day with them...but my day started around 4 am!
My husband wakes up at 4 am every day to work his summer job (he is a middle school teacher for learning disabilities) at a grocery store where he does shipping, dairy, frozens, and general stocking. He works 6 am to noon.
Since we live near Chicago, my son and his girlfriend also got up at 4 am to get ready for the Blackhawks parade and after party. There were catching the train. Toilets flushing, showers taken, microwave beeping...yeah, I was awake.
I got out of bed around 6 am and did my last free Curves at 6:30 am. Came home and got ready for my day program. The clients and I walked a mile while the other staff had to do grocery shopping for cooking class the next week. Afterwards, we loaded up the clients in a mini bus and went to see the movie Monsters University. It was cute and I was sleepy and hungry. I got popcorn and root beer.
After the program was over, I had 45 minutes until back to work at the residential group home. My husband brought home a HUGE deli sandwich which easily could feed 4 people. I ate half of it. Grrrrr! He insisted too stating that he was going to put in a pizza after I left for work.
I have not eaten since 3:30 pm and it is 9:45 pm. I am not hungry...more tired. I was incredibly thirsty at work so I am thinking that the deli meats contained a lot of sodium! Boo!
So, I am going to bed now since I have to get up and work 10 hours. It will be easy...
