Back to Work

It was almost a relief to be back at work today.  I was getting to the point where I was getting bored at home.  I’ve discovered that Ambien is my friend.  It still takes 45 minutes to an hour to fall asleep after taking it, I feel more rested in the morning having slept through the night.  I think some of my biggest issues with being tired during the day is simply not getting good sleep at night. 

I worked in my room all day aside from visiting with other teachers here and there.  I’ve only made a dent in the work that needs to be done.  I probably should have gone up this weekend to work, but I just enjoyed my last bit of time off.  I have lots of “plans” but not sure if I’ll get it all done before school starts.  I’m sure I’ll have to spend a few evenings working as well as the weekend – that is of course unless I have a date.

Haven’t heard back from Matthew but his grandson was leaving today so hopefully I’ll hear from him soon.  I hope that we’ll be able to go out some time this week.

I got home and was pleasantly surprised that Josh had mowed the yards.  It was getting pretty bad, especially with all the rain we got the other night.  Josh also made a run to Sonic for drinks and now I have a diet cherry limeade to drink. 

Tonight I have to send out reminders regarding the upcoming speech meeting and then I’ll probably just take it easy.  I’m going to try to sleep without Ambien and see how it goes.  I was surprised that I wasn’t completely exhausted when I got home which is typical after going back to work, but of course I didn’t work that hard today.   I do feel a little tired so hopefully I’ll be able to get to sleep at a decent hour. 

I found out that I made a 98 in my grad school class this summer.  I guess I can’t complain about that.  I was concerned about the submission of a checklist that I needed to be verified in order to be able to take one of my last courses.  I checked today and it turns out that an email sent to my mentor librarian for verification had gone to her junk email box.  Hopefully it will show up as verified tomorrow so I can register for classes this weekend.

Finally all the research should have come to a result and a working sleeping pill is found. I could use one now and then.
Good to see that your librarian activities go on and are successfull - I really hope that you can make this!
