I worked 5 days in a row this week. That doesn’t seem like a normal thing for most people but I am exhausted! When did I become such a lightweight with work? It could be the time change combined with Jacob waking i at 11:30pm and wanting to snuggle as well. He is a great cuddler but he also moves a lot and I wake up when he moves so I can make sure he isn’t going to fall off the bed.
Last January, I left my home hospital to join the ‘Outpatient’ pool which means I don’t have a primary hospital to which I’m scheduled with calls, weekends, late nights. I make my own schedule and thankfully found steady work for almost a year.
This week was busy and I had ‘full’ days. I also had meetings and appointments to try to get to that were stressful. Monday was a work meeting at 6pm, Tuesday was Jacob’s 2 year physical, Thursday was an eyelash appointment and Friday was an OB appointment.
I made all the appointments this week- woohoo!!! and Jacob acted his usual happy-go-lucky self despite his cold. No fevers, slight cough, eating, peeing and pooping his usual self.
These next few weeks will also have some full 5-day work weeks. How did I manage before? Previously, there were some days I’d be off since I worked late the day before. It’s nice to have weekdays off to run errands without dealing with the weekend traffic!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, by the way! I don’t usually celebrate this holiday but I know some people do! You all can have a shot of whiskey and drink some green beer for me! Have a great weekend, everyone!!!
