i feel like i've been run over by a truck

This week has been horrible (and it's barely half over). I wish I could just crawl into bed and start over next Monday. This whole working doubles thing is lovely as long as you're not on your feet for 15 hours doing a job with tons of departments that each think their jobs are the only ones in the entire place that need to be done. If I had a dollar for everyone who snapped at me today, I'd have enough to buy a pretty nice steak dinner.

I can't tell if this stuff is getting to me worse because I took on too many hours and am too stressed out and under-rested or because the general population of the world continues to treat me like crap. However, I can't really afford NOT to work this much, either. So I'll suck it up, at least until I get admitted for whatever I'm going to catch from this hospital-lobby computer, (at which I'm writing this during a 15-minute break); this thing should be nuked for all the germs that are probably on it.

Now that this has become a pity party, I can take solace in the fact that one of those departments bought us a Thank You cookie cake with a card full of messages about how great we are. Granted, we've been too busy to eat it, but still.

I know I shouldn't be bitching. Two months ago, I didn't have steady work or health benefits. I just need a hot bath and a nap.

sounds like you're burned out.

Don't push any second wind you're riding on (that was so grammatically correct) too hard. Cookie cake (COOKIE CAKE!) is all very well, but you know, take care. Don't run yourself into the ground!

Don't worry, tomorrow is thursday (the best day of the week!).

Hang in there.

madelyn: um yeah. that particular day is on the list of alltime HORRIFIC days. i stood at a counter computer terminal for about 4.5 hours just processing paperwork about 3 hours after it was supposed to have been done. now have a blister on my foot. that day was certainly a burn-out day.

syar: it was awesome to come home and not have to worry about anything but setting my alarm.

cofo: thursday IS the best day of the week!

supacoo and anon: thanks!
