    I think I just need to vent.
    I have several major health problems, so I only work one day a week, Sundays, but it is a 24 hr. shift. I never, ever call in sick; mostly because it's impossible to find a replacement for a 24 hr. shift.
    Yesterday morning, I reported for work @ 9, as usual, but by 10:30 I just knew I wouldn't be able to do my shift. I began trying to call my supervisor, but both she and her assistant were playing hide and seek. [​IMG] I resigned myself to working. Around 6 last night the BIG boss called to ask a question about something and I couldn't help but tell her how horrible I felt. She had someone there to replace me within the hour. Wouldn't wanna be my supervisor when the boss got ahold of her today [​IMG] At any rate, I got home around 7; it would have been sooner but as I left work I found one of our clients walking home in the dark and rain and I ended up giving him a ride home...clear across town of course. My SO, who had been called into work early due to a city-wide power outage got home aorund 10, absolutely worn out. We should have been able to wallow in our collective miseries and sleep till we felt human again right? Nope. Our phone rang at 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. for him (he's watch commander, and has to be available), my cell rang at midnight for me (problem at work). There's a bobcat hybrid that hangs around the farm and he began a lonesome crying just outside our bedroom window around 3:30 a.m.; I'm sorry I'm super soft-hearted and it breaks my heart to hear him cry. Our brainless border colle started barking at the cows at 5 and didn't shut up until I gave up on sleep and got up at 6.
    I would love to just ignore the world today and sleep till Tuesday but the SO has to go to work at 4 p.m. and I have to go rob a bank (j/k here feds) so I can pick Rxs up at the pharmacy. [​IMG]
    k, thank you for listening...I'm done venting [​IMG]

    Poor thing! [​IMG]

    When I'm sick I sleep with the TV on, and DH thinks I'm crazy. But if I fall asleep to that background noise I can more easily ignore the other noises.

    That doesn't help with the phone ringing though!

    Try to get some rest, and take some vitamins.

    Poor Sweetie!! When you get home from the Pharmacy, turn off the phones, draw the curtains, have a warm cup of tea and snuggle into a warm blankie and close your eyes thinking warm and wonderful day old chickie thoughts. Praying for a restful, peaceful, quiet day for you!!

    Sorry to hear about your rotten night, grit. I'd offer for you to come and catch 40 winks at my place, but things are just as messed up at my place. [​IMG] Sheila kept barking at that darned ant all last night...:thun
