Couldn't sleep...

Work has been stressing me out, and in my efforts to try to fix things at work I have been doing things like working 12 hour days. Last night my body just couldn't do that, and I went home on time. It was good at first. I got some relaxing in, did some reading, chatted with a few friends. Looked for places to live. Then when I did go to bed I couldn't sleep. I think that the relief from work related stress let me evaluate other things in my life, and that stress is even harder to cope with. Maybe that is why I was working so hard in the first place. When I started this job life was looking so bright, and I was starting to lose weight. In the last two weeks I have been gaining weight. I think my weight seems to be related to how well I am doing in other areas of life. When it seems to be doing well I lose weight. When it's not so good my weight goes up.

Two weeks ago Highschool reunion was really great. I didn't really expect it to be. I should call write some of those people.

Last weekend was disappointing with the exception of Friday night hanging out with Andrea, Christina, and John. Too bad my super early shift meant I was too tired to fully enjoy that experience.

Bah!

man, you should talk with people at work about how much you've been really working and let them know you see you've got to pull back and stay within , more or less, set number of hours. having that extra time may mean that you have to face things going on, but that's probably a good thing. maybe you can some of that time to be exercising, which will help you lose weight - make you feel better about yourself and make you feel better because of endorphins.

why was the rest of your last weekend so disppointing?

Stressed

There isn't anyone telling me to stay more than 8 hours. I know though that we have a lot of problems, some of which could cause us to go out of business if not fixed. I really like this job when the going is good so I think I feel a desperate need to make sure these things are taken care of.

Last weekend was primarily disappointing because there were so many fun things I thought were going to happen that didn't.

I think I learned something about chilling out on Friday. I feel quite a bit better now.

i see what you mean, you care about your work, so you stay to help. be careful with that though, you're not as much good to them burnt out and stressed.

what did you learn about chilling out on friday?

Swimming is fun.

It seems very rare for you to actually answer your phone!
