What do you do when you finally get a day off work?

bah, humbug: take two

First, let me say this, I have been working six days a week for around 12 hours a day.  So…tired?  You bet.  The only way I could drag myself out of bed yesterday was to keep reminding myself that I had today off.

I woke up this morning at 5…yes, you heard that right…5 am!  I got up, fed the cats and called in to work to make sure they understood my notes about what they needed to be doing.  Then I went back upstairs and climbed back into my soft, cozy bed with Kindle in hand.  I read for a while, then turned the light back off and slept until 9.  Got up and piddled around for a while, climbed back into bed around 11:30 and fell into a deep sleep for another couple of hours.  Felt oh so much better when I woke up.

But I still couldn’t get up the motivation to actually do anything worthwhile.  I did a load of laundry and the dishes, then fooled around on Facebook and Pinterest…now that’s a good way to waste some time, pinning things you’d like to do instead of actually doing them…but hey, when you’re mentally and physically exhausted…

Twenty days ’till Christmas…falalalala lalalala…bah humbug!!

  1. Since I’m unemployed, I have every day off. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I finally get back to work–probably sleep like you did. I know I’ll be tired!

  2. bah humbug? Nah you’ll get excited Patti as Christmas gets closer. I hope. What are your plans this year?

    • Well, I won’t be able to make it to my family get-together (out of town) this year so that’s got me kind of bummed…so I guess my plans are to keep doing what I’ve been doing lately…working and then working some more. At least we’re closed on Christmas!

  3. I’m glad you rested, and then rested some more. 🙂 You earned (at least) a day to do what you want.

  4. You deserved this rest and I’m glad you got it!

  5. Sleep is good!! I had Friday off, the last day off before the final year end push and highest stress season at work… I woke up at 4am with a temp of 101… I literally slept all day for the next two days and am still at 100… If you don’t rest when you get the chance, the universe will force you to! 🙂
