Well, starting about a week ago I wasn't able to get really restful sleep. I wasn't sleeping enough, and I was waking up a lot. By Friday I figured I'd catch up over the weekend - but I kept waking up when I tried to rest and I ended up feeling more fatigued at the end of the weekend then at the start. It sucked. The start of the work week wasn't great either. I was getting grouchy because I was tired and I wasn't focusing well at work so things were plodding. I can't believe rhysara
put up with all the IM conversations we've been having with my punchiness. (Hey, thanks to solipsistnation
, and whomever else was responsible for introducing her to GweepCo. She's a lot of fun.)
Wednesday night I worked late since I was taking Thur-Mon off - originally for impykins
visit, but even after she cancelled I decided I needed a rest anyway. I just wanted to get some stuff done - and I didn't really work flat out all night. I was chatting with rhysara
for hours and hours and I did bits of work as we chatted. After she crashed I focused, wrapped things up, and got out of there a bit after 04:00. When I got home I ate and relaxed, and crashed a bit before 08:00 with the expectation of sleeping all day.
Around 13:00 I woke up and boy was I pissed about it. I felt *dead*, but I was awake. I shuffled around and got some water and decided to go lay down again anyway. But this time, thankfully, I slept again! And I didn't wake up until after 20:00. And I felt well rested - actually a bit hyper. I actually feel *good*. I don't know what was keeping me from sleeping right the past week, but man, it was beating me up. rhysara
and I ended up chatting most of the evening, until I finally caved in to hunger and made tacos (after doing my dishes). Mmmm, tacos. <gir>I love the little tacos so much!</gir> She'd crashed by the time I returned. Good, she'd better get better from her cold so she can be at the piss-up tonight. :-) We have to celebrate her new job!
I'd been thinking about going into work Monday and not buring the vacation day. But now it looks like rhysara
and I will get together and hang out for the day instead. Which sounds like a much better plan than working, and worth using a vacation day. Next weekend is Anime Next, so I'm off Fri-Mon too - which means it'll be a short 3-day week for me.
