First Day Blues

Friday, May 22, 2010

Working the overnight shift sure reeks havoc with your days off.  Every time it is my first “day off”–meaning I worked the day before, 7 p to 7 a, and then have the next night off–I’m ALWAYS tired.  Today I was extra tired because I got up early so that a co-worker could pick up an office desk and chair that we were giving her.  Combine that with eating a filling dinner…I was SO sleepy.

I tried to take a nap.  But of course I couldn’t nap because I knew that I wanted to get up shortly and do something.  It was so frustrating.

We did eventually get to do something fun together.  We took a trip to Barnes and Noble because Kimm found a coupon online for a BOGOF Frappacino.  Bonus!  Those things are expensive.  I ended up buying one book…nerd alert…it was a book for work (Rapid ACLS–Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support–I have to go in the fall to get certified and there’s a lot of info so I thought I’d get a heads up on it now).

Now I’m tired again.  And my first “day off” is over 😦

Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive.

On a happier note…my friend Frank bought a salon!!!!  WOW–he’s a small business owner…doesn’t that sound so grown-up?  Sometimes I forget that I’m nearing 40 years old.  Gulp.
