This to me has seemed like a very long week.

Roy’s work schedule was changed around and there was at least one day that I left the house at 5am and didn’t get home till 9pm, only to get up the next day at 4am to do it all over again.

I needed coffee to survive.

On Monday I was quite sick with a migraine headache … and on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, my body was arguing with an abdominal migraine (yes, there is such a thing, and, yes, they’re rare in adults, and, yes, I do get them).

I’m better today after dragging myself to work every day except for Monday when I spent the day in the dark and pretended I was a bat, since any light hurt my head.  I never used to know what my mother meant when she’d say “it’s hell getting old”.  Now I do.

I’ve learned the following trick however.

ANYWAY!!!

Today with it being FINALLY FRIDAY and feeling much better and having  a 3-day weekend with Monday off for Veterans’ Day (they deserve it more than any other group I know out there), I’m ready to let loose.  I get THREE WHOLE DAYS OF UNMITIGATED FREEDOM where they let me out of my cubicle jail on good behaviour.  So I’m dedicating the following George Jones’ song to all of my friends out there:

 

*~*~*

 

I've got a hundred dollars smokin' in my billfold. 
I know I outta save it, but it's burnin' a hole 
Right through my pocket and into my skin.
Come Monday mornin', I'll be broke again.
It's Finally Friday! I'm free again!
I got my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!
It's Finally Friday! I'm out of control!
Forget the workin’ blues and let the good times roll!
I got a little sugar baby down the road.
She's sittin on a radio, rockin' n roll.
We'll dance up a storm, and later in the night,
We'll be workin' on doin’ all the wrong things right.
It's Finally Friday! I'm free again!
I got my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!
It's Finally Friday! I'm out of control!
Forget the workin’ blues and let the good times roll!
Monday, I'll be hurtin’ with my head in a vice.
Tuesday, I'll be wonderin’ if I'll ever survive.
Wednesday and, uh, Thursday, I'll be slowly tunin' in.
Friday, I'll be revvin' up my motor again.
It's Finally Friday! I'm free again!
I got my motor runnin' for a wild weekend!
It's Finally Friday! I'm out of control!
Forget the workin’ blues and let the good times roll!

FINALLY FRIDAY
George Jones

One of my cats gave me this look this morning … the look of “are you CRAZY getting up at oh-dark-thirty on a chilly morning when this bed is so warm and we are all so tired?”

I agree.

Not even coffee can fix this. I know what can and will. It’s called “sleeping till my eyelids are tired of being closed”.

Coffee is what powers my metabolism.

However … today … coffee cannot fix this kind of tired.

If you hear me snoring at work, just wake me up in time to go home.

Neither Roy nor I are morning people but we both have jobs that require we get up at a quarter to cock-a-doodle-doo. We both survive on large amounts of caffeine. Getting on my commuter bus this morning shortly after 5am … particularly on a Friday morning of what feels like a very long week … here is our opinion …

too early

Neither Roy nor I are morning people.  Ask my children.  They know in particular that I am not.  They used to bring me coffee in the morning and stand back.  I’m like a bear before I get a good slug of strong hot black coffee pumping through my system.  So this is how I feel most mornings … and today in particular … since I have had several days off and haven’t been at work since last Tuesday. 

Also … it reminds me of Keegan, because he was not a morning person either. 

So even though I have a job where I have to get up freakishly early (4:00 am, at least in my very not-so-humble opinion, is VERY freakishly early), anyone that knows me well will know not to expect me to be too conversational until I’ve had several cups of coffee in me.  Yes, I can get my work done, but I cannot be conversational.  Do not try to discuss too much with me too terribly early … particularly on weekdays when I need my coffee/caffeine fix … but also on weekends when I want to sleep and make up for my 4 am wake-up calls for work.

 

… just sayin’ is all …

 

Carry on, everyone …

That’s been my philosophy my entire life.

I’ve been off work for a few days.  Roy has started a brand new job.  It’s always hard to go back to work after time off and/or to change jobs, particularly when both of us would be perfectly happy self-employed and able to completely support ourselves independently.  Unfortunately, that is not currently the case.  So after a few days off work (or for Roy after a few days into a new job), here is our very much UNHUMBLE opinion on what keeps us going.

It may not be “PC”, but I will repeat Roy’s and my oft-stated mantra.  When have we ever EVER claimed to be PC?
