I thought about being cranky today. I was SOO tired!!! I went a good many months with intentionally getting more sleep. Then a few weeks ago, I started consistently letting the sleep numbers dwindle. Last night was just shy of four hours. I need more sleep than that.
Yesterday I worked for around 19 hours straight. The blessing and curse of the home office. It is convenient. I would never work 19 hours at an outside building.
This morning as I was driving (late) for my 7:15 meeting I wanted to whine. I decided to be thankful. I am thankful that I get to work from home, many do not have that flexibility. I am thankful that part of my job is leaving home; it makes for a nice break from desk time. I am thankful for the sleep that I did get; there are some who got far less. I am thankful for the ability to take on extra work when I choose, many do not have that opportunity.
I started whining a little bit off and on today. I tried to catch myself. No, I didn’t have to work so much. But we have big goals. Big goals take lots of work. And I am truly blessed to be able to work that extra time from my home, with my family around, coming in to talk to me. I get to hear about everybody’s day while I do the easier stuff. And do the more analytical part in between visits from my family coming in to my office. Yes, I truly am blessed.
Tonight I am thankful for the opportunity to work while being here for my family. Tonight I am also very thankful that I am going to bed and sleeping tonight!!!
