Long Day

Today was a long day.

Coming off of additional dental work that I had not anticipated needing to have done, today was a rough day. My mouth was sore from having a post done and multiple Novocain shots in the mouth.

I want to go to bed.




Last week was awful.

Everything that could go wrong last week did go horribly wrong. Work was piling up, life was getting stressful, and then I had an unexpected dental emergency. My body cannot take more of the stressful events that could possibly occur.

I intend for this week to be better.

I cannot predict the world is going to go my way this week. I cannot predict how work will go. I just do not know what will happen. All I know is that I intend to make this week a better week than the one that happened before.


I am a frequent flier…

…at the dentist.

I have horribly bad teeth. I have never needed braces or any corrective gear, but I have had almost every dental procedure that exists performed on my mouth. If I had to guess, my mouth has probably built half of the building with the amount of work done. Part of it, I will admit, is my own fault. In my younger days, I did drink a lot of soda and eat a lot of candy. Nowadays, my only teeth damaging vice is coffee. I try, but I still have to come back.


I took another nap today.

It was my second during the holiday weekend.

Normally, I am not at all the napping type. I don’t always nap correctly. Either I lie down and don’t sleep, or I sleep for hours on end. The uncertain nature of naps just keeps me from taking these shortened moments of sleep.

Today, I thought I’d give it a try.

I managed to only sleep for an hour. Normally, that would be enough for me to wake up and feel refreshed, but I feel exhausted. My body has not woken up from its midday resting, and I can’t wait to go back to bed.

Day Off

Tomorrow, I do not have to go to work.

Happy Memorial Day to all who have served and to all to deserve to be remembered.

I like, like most Americans, will be taking the day off to remember, relax, and just enjoy what has become the unofficial start to Summer.

Boy, do I need this day!

This week has been a long and tiring one, and I am happy for it to be other.


A Little Longer


Just, five more minutes, please.

I don’t want to get out of bed yet.

Your bed in the morning is never more comfortable than when you have to get out of it to do something important. You are glued to mattress while the warm blankets and comforter seal you in. Your head is stuck to the pillows and is so heavy that it feels like it weighs double. You do not want to get out.

Even on the weekends, I didn’t want to get up.

Today, my bed was just too inviting. All I wanted to do was sleep.

So I did.

By Myself

I am alone.

Right now, I am sort of in-between jobs in a manner of speaking. I am in the process of moving departments within my company and have been moved to a different part of the building until I move to my new department. In my current placement,  I am sitting amongst people who are not a part of my team and in a row by myself by the window. It is a quiet place and a little lonely. I am left talking with myself inside my head.  I am just in an in-between type of place with no one to talk to.
