Although the weekend was rather quiet and enjoyable, that last four days have been beyond hectic. I am so glad that today is Thursday. I’m not even sure where this week went. It’s like Monday happened and then ‘BAM!’ it’s today.
As reported last week, my boss gave me a few extra hours at work this week. I was amazed how even just an extra hour of work on Monday could completely alter or affect my schedule. By the time I’d left the offices, gotten my chores done, and driven home, it was something like eight or nine o’clock and I still had to study for exams.
The office was absolutely nuts that day and it seems like Mondays are going to continue to be atrocious for the rest of the semester. I was in the office by myself for the two busiest hours of the day and normally that would be fine, but for some reason it was absolutely exhausting this week and no matter how many students I helped, it just seemed like nothing I could do eased the craziness. When four o’clock rolled in and the two night staff members came in, all I remember is putting my head down on a desk in the back and sitting there long enough that one of them asked if I was all right.
Ever since I woke up on Tuesday, I’ve had this terrible knot in my right scapula that just won’t go away. It got bad enough that I’ve actually had to take ibuprofen for it, which to me is just amazing. I don’t take medicine unless I absolutely have to have it. It’s just not in my nature, but Advil isn’t even cutting it anymore.
Thankfully, Tuesday was much more calm and relaxed. I got half of the office’s courtesy calls done before eleven and by the time I got back from my anthropology test and computer class, I was able to just sit back and help students. It was wonderful. And then when I got to SO’s house, things got even better because he agreed to go to the gym and the yarn store with me after dinner. My run didn’t end up being that great, but it was nice to get some exercise before heading home and studying a bit before bed around midnight.
Wednesday was pretty much like Tuesday. I worked in the morning, headed to class, and then went over to SO’s house. We were supposed to go to the gym again, but I felt like I was starting to get sick, so we ended up going to the yarn store and out to lunch before heading over to State for our classes there. We got back to home base around eight p.m. and went for frozen yogurt, but I was exhausted. I actually had to take a nap before driving home because I was that tired. I was happy to make it home safely, but it goes without saying that tonight I will be going to bed early and sleeping in tomorrow morning. All that’s on my plate for tomorrow is homework, playing catchup with my television, and some yarn work if there’s time.
Hopefully by the time Sunday rolls around, I’ll be feeling 100% again. I have a 10K to run with my mom on Sunday of this week.
