I had dreams last night that were awful. So bad. I can't even get into it because they were so disturbing. I have to assume that my brain just needed to get rid of some dark, dark garbage.
That said, I suspect that I will be taking some serious meds tonight to get some sleep. Because I am exhausted.
I went to Atlanta for the weekend. I took my mother to see her BFF down in Milledgeville which was great. Her husband and I have gotten to be pretty good pals, and she also has two sweet dogs. So it was a pretty great day. Mom had fun, I had fun, pretty sure the friends and her dogs had fun.
But that was four hours on the road Friday, another four (divided) on Saturday, and then I made a roast for Mom, her boyfriend and their neighbor Sunday. The Monday, we had a doctor appointment, then I drove home for four hours.
And then, I came back to some sturm und drang, corporate style. They are enforcing the Federal Employees Vaccine mandate. I'm good to go - I've got it on lock - my certificate is in, I'm good to go - we have about 30% in our world who have not done it yet, and a percentage of those likely won't. So, we might lose some of them.
It's nerve wracking. We'll see what happens within the next couple of months.
Meanwhile, I am having some back pain. Lower back, probably from all the driving - but yeah, back probs.
Anyway, that's possibly the cause of the exhaustion. I'll for sure take a swig of NyQuil - not just because I want to sleep, but I also really need to kill some sinus congestion. Ah, fall!
I don't know - I am glad that the weekend went well - even though we're basically halfway to the next weekend. Where I'll be donating blood and having brunch. I also really need to consider when and how I'm going to get jelly made. My small but fierce fanbase demands it.
Also, what is up with my back. Am I about to pass a kidney stone? Is it shingles? Or did I just pull a muscle?
I tend to overthink things. I bet it's muscle strain.
Pure and simple.
