If you check out my profile, I am doing alot, perhaps too much. But I am doing the things with an objection in mind. I hate my job but haven't been able to find one that pays at least the same. They refuse to promote me further on my job. I want to change careers to get a better job, so I'm in school. I know that my body cannot tolerate moving around my job all day and then sitting up and participating in someone's class, so I take online courses. I have the same mindbending homework and assignments, but without the hassle of listening to a professor lecture. The "lecture" is powerpoint notes. The "class participation" is logging on and posting on the Discussion Board. Anyway, on top of that, I was picking my youngest daughter up from games after work. After work, I need to go home and climb in bed. Yes, I can do my homework in bed, with my laptop. For those of us with these dd's, one more thing is all it takes to mess us up. Well, my daughter's ongoing disobedient and vindictive behavior made me pull her off of the team, so now my body is so wound up that it's hard for me to get rest. Yesterday, at work, I was dosing at my desk and about to powder my nose and then go walk around, when I spilled my makeup (mineral foundation powder) all over my beige-colored skirt! I used my Tide To go stick, but on beige, the stain was still there. I hoped that I wouldn't get a walk-in client or that a meeting wouldn't be called. As I'm typing now, I'm so tired that I think I'll pass out. I'm so sleepy that I have a headache from not being able to close my eyes. I have no paid time left. And if I leave early, all of the overtime that I worked for Comp. Time (when I was killing time before picking up my daughter) will just be straight time. Yes, I have FMLA and ADA accommodations, but that's not paid, and I need money. I guess I now need to keep a change of clothes on the job Well, also, with my "female problems" (another post), a change of clothes is not a bad idea. Thing is, my body rarely wants to go to sleep before midnight. I need to work part-time, from about 10:30am to 3:30pm. That would be a perfect working schedule for me. The kids leave out so early, so that would break my sleep, but I'd still have time to sleep a little more before having to get up. This is the last week of overtime. Over the summer, I was too tired to work overtime to build up more time. And when I would do it, I'd wind up taking 1-2 days off the next week. I really need to take some time off while I'm on vacation from school (from mid-December to mid-January). Okay, I'll stop rambling. I just want to climb in bed and stay there for a couple of days, and then for a few more days, not leave home.
