Yesterday afternoon, I decided that I was going to take a personal day today, because I just felt so tired and so sluggish. I have been sleeping as well as I usually do - which isn't that great, but I've never been that good of a sleeper - but I was just feeling like I was dragging myself around the world. I know that it has a lot to do with the stressful situation at work, which has amped up comsiderably in the past couple of weeks. So on the spur of the moment I decided, since there was nothing that I specifically needed to be at work to do today.
Last night I just *had* to go to bed much earlier than I usually do, because I was just kind of sitting watching a show with The Tim, and missing most of what was happening, since I was dozing in and out.
Well, I think my self-diagnosis (such as it is) was correct. Because after going to bed really early, and then waking up this morning at 8:30 a.m., I feel So Much Better! And I can't think of the last time I slept so late. (Yes, 8:30 a.m. is late for me. I realize that for a lot of people it is too early, but there you are.)
So today I plan to do as much or as little as I feel like doing. I know that as soon as I go back to work on Monday, things will be extremely stressful again, and I'll start all over again, but that will be then. In the meantime, I'm going to just go with my own flow.
The only very specific plan I have for the weekend is getting my hair cut tomorrow, so the rest is just my time to decorate and do some baking (hopefully). I found a new recipe for some sugar-type cookies that use cream cheese as one of the ingredients, so I want to try those. I'll be sure to let you know if they are deemed successful.
The Tim sent this to me yesterday, and I decided to share it with you. I'm sure we've all heard of the Omicron variant of Covid-19, but did you know there is yet another one that's been discovered??
