So I am just completely drained and I forgot to blog AT ALL this weekend. I had a restful weekend, so I don't know why I feel so sleepy all of a sudden. Hope I'm not getting sick... UGH.

I basically ate what I wanted to this weekend, and it didn't seem to bother me too much in terms of the scale because I still weigh the same as I did on Friday. I went and ate with my parents Saturday night and had a delicious lobster bisque, followed by grilled salmon with vegetables and cheese grits, then a glass of dessert wine and a slice of cheesecake. It was really REALLY good, and I pretty much saved up my calories all day for that dinner.

Work is really getting to me today. We've been stretched super-thin lately in terms of our schedule because we've had a lot of vacancies, plus unexpected emergencies like deaths in the family, illnesses, and so forth. We do what we can to make sure we have people to work, but sometimes it's just not possible. My staff is incredibly overworked and burned out, myself included, and I don't know how to alleviate the situation. It seems that everyone else's answer is to just get pissy and be extremely difficult for others to work with. That doesn't fly with me, but I'm in no position to fix it.

    I feel like everyone is stretched all over... we only have 12 ppl to begin with when we are fully staffed and right now we are down 3! So everyone is pulling overtime to fill in the gaps.

    Lots of water!!! It will help with the tiredness and feeling sluggish.

    Breathe deep and be proud of yourself that you are not stooping to crabbiness like the others.

    Don't worry about not blogging... we all do it. I think it was last week or the week before, I went a whole week of not blogging. I take that as a good thing because for me at least it means my stress levels are usually down.

    You need a good solid block of rest. I am not suce about the issues at work. I used to be in management and severly short staffed. It was terrible for everyone involved. I would come home and try not to think about work. I would play darts to relax.The down side was I ate terribly and did nothing else physical.
    Maybe some meditation or yoga. Hard to do when you are physically tired.Get some rest,you have a multitude of things to do when you wake up and go back to the grind.
