Bad Decisions

In my first or second week, I was asked to volunteer to work the warehouse sale. Help set up on Friday night for a free box. Work the sale on Saturday and get a lieu day. I signed up for both. It was said that I might not have to work, until our “friends and family” sale made a local popular blog. At that point it was all hands on deck.

Meanwhile my BFF calls to say we’ve been invited out … on the same Friday. I agree to go.

I get up at 6:30-ish every morning as I have to get my workout in!! 😛 The “work” day was cut short for those doing the set up. So from 3:30-9pm I opened boxes and dumped heavy items into a bin … on my feet … in a hot dusty warehouse. It was not pretty.

I get home with just enough time to shower and clean myself up before my BFF comes to pick me up. I tell her of my day and the fact that I have to be back at work for 7:30am the next day.

We stay out until after 2am. 😲

I get up at 6:30am and curse my bad decisions. I did not have to stay at work until 9. I was supposed to leave earlier so I could nap before the club. But I was already there and there was so much to do.

We guesstimate that there was at least 2500 people who showed up for the sale. I managed to finish out my shift without issue. In fact I even ran a few errands before going home. But once I stopped moving, it was game over. Although I only slept for 2 hours around 7pm, it sort of messed up my sleep and I had a hard time falling asleep Saturday night.

On Sunday guess who went to bed not feeling very well? This girl!! Yup I  have been fighting a cold all week and I am not sure I am winning. 😦

Basic take away, sleep is important my friends, very important.

Small advances

For the first time in at least 5 years I did a morning work out and you know what? It didn’t kill me. And this was with my late bed time and early morning wake up, a total of about 4 hours sleep.

I’m beat but I am glad I knocked it out this morning as I was beyond tired when I got home. Although habit had me putting on my workout clothes when I came home from work. lol

From the weekend’s list of things to do, I managed to empty out both bathroom cabinets, donate 2 bags of stuff and take the 2 boxes of CDs that have been sitting in a corner to the used CD store to sell. They pretty much gave me back 2 boxes as they only took 45 CDs. Which netted me $80! Not bad for crap that was collecting dust in my dining room.

The next thing to figure out if I am going to try to take the rest to another store or just donate them. Any thoughts?

Waking up panicked

I came home not feeling very well.

I am not one who naps but I was feeling cold and had the shivers so I thought I would just lay down under the covers for a minute.

A minute turned into a couple of hours.

While I woke up feeling much better, I felt like I had slept much longer than I did.  I actually thought that it was 9 am not 9 pm.  My heart raced as I wondered why no one from work called me to run the jobs that I usually do in the morning.  Then I remembered I left my phone in the living room.  I was mildly panicked.

Sadly even though I was wearing a watch that had both the day AND the date on it, I still thought it was morning.  Did I mention there is also a little P in the screen?

To say I was confused is an understatement.

Once I figured it out what the time really was I went into Mommy mode as my kids were happily chilling on the couch like they had nowhere to go tomorrow.  In fact while I was asleep they were so kind as to close my bedroom door so as not to “disturb” me.

Needless to say my early evening nap has thrown me for a loop.  It’s time for me to go to bed for real tonight.
