Why aren't there....

... enough days off to do the things I need to get done?

I was supposed to work today, but, I begged Philip to take my shift. It's normally my day off, but, I had signed up for even more OT. WTF was I thinking? If I had worked, I would have had a grand total of two days off in a thirteen day stretch. And that included eight doubles, (16 hr days). Cripes almighty.

I'm just figuring out that I'm not young anymore. What a realization that is Jeez, when I was in my early 20's, I worked full time, and partied full time. Wasn't too unusual to get two hours of sleep. And I would do that for a couple of weeks, then crash for a full day. Then start the cycle all over again.

But now? I work a couple of doubles in a row, and I am totally and completely wiped out.

I have grass to mow, things to do around here, and people to see. I should just say screw the lawn and take off for Largo.

Hmmmmmm. Sounds like a plan. I'm off to see my mom, and take her for a swim in the resident's pool, (she has alzheimers and lives in an ALF). I'm sure I'll have more fun than cutting the grass...

Ya'll have a good hump day.

Good for you! Time to get away for a bit.
Oh, and by the way, thanks for being such a good sport!
I know I was being presumptuous, and I was a little leary that cue stick was headed in my direction!

Hey Cat, getting old is HELL, take it from one who knows. Why it takes me all night to do what I use to do all night. What a dutiful daughter to take your Mom swimming, I am sure she loved it, and heck the grass will be there next week. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

From what the Kingsnake tells me, you sure don't ACT old! Sounds to me like you're having a blast down there in sunny Florida. I'm jealous!

Take it in stride or anyway you can get it. I know what's beautiful when I see it ... and so often I see it in you. Don't take it personally if I amuse you ... life constantly forces me to be funny.
