It has been quite a long Friday--but I did make a little progress in my work load today. I have a list, and I'm crossing the jobs off, one little thing at a time, and there is some sort of satisfaction in that. I do not function well without a list, I never have. I cannot focus--and sometimes, even with one, it's still difficult. I am working tomorrow, and also on Sunday---but then I plan to take all day off on Monday. I really don't mind working on the weekends, I am able to get more done, the atmosphere in the office is calmer, and that brings better working conditions for me. I am mostly back to my usual hours now, although I have not been able to make to eight pm yet, although I have been able to work a couple of twelve hour days---but I haven't been able to do it until that hour. I get up too early these days, and while I always have, recently I cannot make it that long. I don't know if I ever will, honestly. I am not sure if that makes sense - what I'm saying is, the hours at the garage on the long days are 8-8. I don't seem to be able to do that recently, although I have worked 4-5 once and 6-6 a time or two, but I haven't been able to work as late as eight o'clock since I have been sick. There, I hope that is clearer.
I wanted to do something tonight, but it is just too damned cold. I must be getting old, a year or two ago, that would not have stopped me. I could think of nothing this evening but getting home to my warm house and my jammies, my book and my 'puter. The wind chills are predicted to be more than twenty below---it has been so cold all day long that I wore my long johns to work under my jeans, and I was inside all day. I don't remember being as cold ever as I am this year. I have heard alot of people say that, however. It's hard not to take this winter personally, as though it is some kind of plot that's out to get ME.
H has quite a cold, and he is one big snotball - cough, sneeze, blow, hack, snort, hock...so much fun...and what fun to share a meal with! I am quite looking forward to the dinner that's due to be delivered from our ONE restaurant in town that is open---it's a good thing I like him, I'm telling you...
Have a good Friday night...I will see you all tomorrow!
