My wine for today…

Okay, (sigh) I’m feeling a little out of sorts today, more than sluggish, little motivation to do stuff normally accomplished on Saturdays and Sundays …

It’s been a long week at work… 56.42 hours/6 days combination days-nights. I get paid by the hour so it’s all good on the pay check after the fact….

I was thinking … sometimes not such a good thing, and my sis would say I over think, but I’m gonna do it anyway!

How many hours in a week? Answer: 128. Now if you work 56.42 hours that leaves: 111.58 hours for other things. Sleep is required;  personally for me, it’s minimally 6 hours a night; I really would like it to be more if I could get it occasionally. Over 7 days; 42 hours …. leaving 69.58 hours. Now lets divide that by 7 leaving about 9.94 hours in a day for other stuff… relaxation, care of household, pets and other persons (if you have them), errands, TV, internet, etc. and the point is? Sometimes stuff just doesn’t get done and you wonder where the time went or think you need to make more time to do stuff,  and put off until tomorrow what didn‘t get done today…. Procrastination!

Time management isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be… sometimes, ‘things’ just get in the way of what appears to be a ‘perfectly’ organized schedule, like extra work on very short notice!

I don’t know about anyone else…but it’s getting harder. I find it more and more difficult to relax and regroup after spending 13 hours in the seat and then having to come home, feed the animals, myself, do other stuff, and then lay down to try and sleep for four or five hours before getting up to go back to work.

Today, when I got home (around 7 AM) and after working what amounted to a double shift with maybe(?) six hours between shifts, my kitchen was (and is) a disaster area. It’s been a disaster area two or three days. Last weekends ‘clean’ dishes are still in the dishwasher… I just keep moving stuff around to make room for other stuff .. just not had the time or inclination to deal with it… it’s time I must!

I need more hours in a day! 
Suggestions, anyone?
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!
