Today is my first six word Saturday post! I’m excited to be a part of it, as I’ve been meaning to for a few weeks but haven’t remembered until now. For more info, click here. Here are my six words:
I’m too tired to work today.
I’ve never in my life been a morning person. No matter how much I try, no matter how much sleep I get or if I go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, I am never happy to be up early in the mornings. I get a lot more accomplished in the afternoon, evening and during the night.
Needless to say, the days don’t work out so well for me when I have to work 7am-3pm. I worked that Friday, and I’m scheduled for it Saturday and Sunday. Yuck, yuck and yuck. I have such a hard time forcing myself to get up. When my alarm goes off at 5 something in the morning, I could cry. And on the days that I am scheduled 7-3, I end up in a vicious cycle of needing a nap when I get home from work. Then I can’t go to bed early and then I’m even more tired the next day. *Sigh* You think there would be some middle ground. That, working in a hospital, I would be able to better prepare myself for early mornings, but I just can’t do it. I struggle with being tired the whole day. I much prefer working 3pm-11pm or even 11pm-7am.
On that note, I suppose I better try to get to bed…since I have to be up in 5 hours. And I’ll likely lay there thinking “hurry up, fall asleep, you have to be up soon!”. Hopefully I will get a few hours of sleep and be a semi-functioning human being when I arrive to work bright and early. I hope you enjoyed my first six word Saturday post!
