Yesterday was no joke. I got almost zero sleep Sunday night. I just could no for the life of me stay asleep. Does anyone else struggle with this? I hate it, I seriously wake up every hour and then get so frustrated by the fact I do this. Doesn’t help the antibiotics are giving me a nice bathroom trip every hour. I saw some people mention melatonin so I may give that a try. Granted, I woke up at 530 am in a fog and pissed. My run luckily cleared my mood but boy was I tired as heck. Then, as I am about to jump in the shower I get a text from my boss saying “Seeing you at Roosevelt (one of our partner schools) at 830 am”. Oh shiz, it was already 730 and that meant I had about five minutes to haul ass in the shower and to the metro for the long ride. Combining the stress of that and the medicine side effects, I got to the metro and puked in a trash can. Classy Alex. People just stared thinking I was hungover. No worries, just some fun root canal junk people – no alcohol in this system. Granted, I got a lot of stares that ride.
Somehow, the planets aligned and at 130 in the afternoon, the power went out in our office. No power, no internet, no computer meant at 3 we were allowed to go work from home. Oh heaven.
So let’s just say with a Monday like that and a pooped out weekend, I have a pile of trades coming for ya.
I would trade… my work schedule this week for the normalcy of hours I started with. I have to speak to teachers at all our partner schools at 8 am each morning. That means getting on the metro by 7 am which means waking up at 5 am not 5:30 to run. Welp. The darkness does not help either.
I would trade… the large bags under my eyes looking like I was punched for a refreshed glow. My lack of sleep because of frequent wake ups is killing me. Any advice people have are greatly appreciated. My raccoon status is kind of killing this man magnet (jokes people, jokes – you know they flee from my direction).
I would trade… the medication side effects (that say last for weeks or months after you finish taking them) for a happy tummy. This is self explanatory, the side effects are so severe on me making me one gross and unhappy camper.
I would trade… blogging relationships online for meeting bloggers in person. Besides being uber jealous of the HLS attendees, I think the biggest thing I would have wanted to do was meet all the bloggers in person. I want a real hug from a lot of them, especially ones I comment on daily. There is just something about that face to face that totally gets me pumped.
I would trade… no microwave week four for convenience cooking strategies. They still have not fixed my microwave and I just hate it! I use it a lot so not having it gets me frustrated. Plus, I wanted to start trying new types of cooking. It is killing my mojo. I will be complaining again tomorrow.
I would trade… the Arctic Zero bashing for some real answers. The Today Show had this huge segment saying that the calories of Arctic Zero was almost 68% off. A WHAT? I mean, for me, I like it for the flavor and texture but for those who rely on those calorie stats, that is a serious blunder. More importantly, deceiving their customers on that front is pretty bad. I want to hear some hard facts because although I haven’t bought it in over two months (yes I am on a budget) I am kind of not wanting to buy it after this. Answers please? I guess I will just stick with my cheaper love watermelon. Or coffee.
It’s a Tuesday and I am on a mission to make it a good one.
Questions: What would you trade this Tuesday? What is your take on Arctic Zero or the other diet frozen treats they talked about? How do you stay asleep at night?
