Maybe I should start calling these quick “what I’ve been up to” posts “Life Updates.” That sounds better than what I was using. Not that I remember what I was using. It’s early. In fact, it’s fucking early!
It’s 7:46 in the morning. Do you know how early that is for me?!?
The sun is rising, dew is still drenching the cars, and I’m not only out of bed but I’m dressed and at the coffee shop! Like I’m all put together and presentable. I’m ready for the day!
And this is actually the second day in a row that I have gotten up early. Yesterday was because I needed to have a one-on-one with a dumbass at work. As per the usual she denied any wrongdoing. She did catch me a little off guard. I could be wrong, but I highly doubt it. That’s okay though, if she wants to play hardball we can do that. She is either about to turn into a really good employee or it’s about to get ugly. Either way, I’m tired of playing with her.
But now on to a better subject: me!
I worked my butt off yesterday. I went in at 6 in the morning and didn’t leave until 6 at night. But when I left I came to the coffee shop and went over reports for work! So I worked all day. I left to go home about 7:30ish and just got ready for bed. I’m not sure why it took me so long, unless I left closer to 8, but I was crawling into bed at 8:30. I took a 3mg Melatonin and slept!
I did wake up about 10:30 to pee and in one of those night-time sleep stupid stoopers I ate like 7 or 8 Kit Kat singles that I bought – and never should have – in the grocery store the other day because I was hungry when I went shopping. I’ve been getting those lately, the sleep eating stoopers. Well, here’s the thing.
I also know I haven’t been eating regularly and we already know I don’t have any self control, especially when I’m tired. And when you wake up in the middle of a heavy sleep to go pee you are clearly tired. At least I am. If I feel stupid – like I’m in a sleep-stooper – I pretty much know I’ll be able to go back to sleep. But sometimes when I wake up I’m hungry and if I have something quick and easy to eat, I usually will.
The other day it was chips and dip but last week it was making a turkey and ham sandwich with the lunch meat I had bought. I know, good idea, right! Anyway.
So I went back to bed and I had set my clock for something like 5:30 or 6. I might have set one of the clocks for 5 but I sure didn’t get up. I didn’t want to get up at 5:30 and I think I just hit the snooze button. But then at 6 another clock went off and shortly after that the 3rd clock went off. I actually got out of bed! I’m fucking surprised. But I did sleep for like 10+ hours. My back was beginning to hurt from laying in bed so long.
And since I didn’t want to go to work this early, after going in so yearly yesterday and working so long, I decided to come to the coffee shop because I had to come here anyway. I just decided to sit inside and write this blog. Maybe I should start doing this every morning!
I’m going to try to start getting 8 hours of sleep every night and getting up early. We will see how that works. Otherwise, in order to get up early I might just have to start going to bed much earlier and trying to sleep longer. We will see because I have got to do something to start getting to work on-time. It’s 8:21 right now and I don’t really want to go to work but I think I should. I
have to be there should be there by 9 every morning.
