THANK GOD IT'S THE WEEK END!!!!!!!
I tried something new the other night. Instead of going to bed EIGHT hours before my alarm time, I did it NINE hours ahead. I was hoping to compensate for the four- six times per night that I get up to the bathroom. It seemed to help. My workplace has added even more hours to my schedule for next week, so that will be all I do, eat, sleep and work.
Today they even asked me why I changed my availability for an hour later in the morning. They wanted me to start at four A.M. instead of five. It is extremely difficult to manage my health with the schedule I have now, changing times even earlier would mess with my meds, especially my diabetes meds.
The thing with this place is that once they ask you to do something ONCE, they then have you do it every day,even if you just did it as a one-time favor to them.
I am not poking that beehive with my stick, even once!! LOL! (Rising at 3 am), Working 4am-1pm five days a week is not for me at this age.
I have been there 23 years and have no intention of grinding out the hours I USED to work when I first started. I used to work thirteen hour days,,every day..
The old body is not even willing to THINK about that work schedule again..
This little pest in the back of my brain is saying, "Go for it Lin, you can get more credits for SS retirement!! Think of that extra $$!!"
The sane part of my grey matter always ends up slapping that pest upside the head and telling her to "MYOB, she wants to have enough left of her brain and body to even KNOW that she is retiring!!".
