This morning began for me at approximately 3:45 am, this is an hour I prefer to never see. The medication I am currently taking for the previously mentioned PG makes me suffer from sleeplessness and jitteriness. At 5:10 am, I decided I couldn't try to sleep anymore, as I had to get up in 10 minutes to go get ready for work.
I got up, made myself an egg salad sandwich, took my medicine, and went in and cried in the bedroom. My husband was awake now, and I couldn't contain the tears. I was exhausted, and there was no way out of it, I had to go to work. This is the busy week at work... every other week is very busy, with a deadline that must be met.
I put in a 12 hour day once I got to work.. I worked from 6:15 am to 6:15 pm, minus the half hour lunch. I was happy when my supervisor told me she was getting ready to leave, and she would drop me off at the train station so I could catch the train home. I generally commute back and forth with my husband, but since he only works 8 hour days, I couldn't expect him to wait around for me. My husband picked me up at the train station at 7:30 pm. He had my youngest son, who was in the backseat blowing me kisses. That always makes my day!
It was wonderful to get home at about 7:45 pm tonight and see my children. Thankfully, they understand that I am exhausted. We had a spiritual thought and I took my prenatal vitamin, calcium+D vitamin and a benadryl. Like I have mentioned before, they enjoy the blog, so I am making sure to get something written today. It is off to bed for me... hoping to get about 8 1/2 hours of sleep tonight.
