Do you ever have one of those mornings when you are so tired that you feel like things are going in slow motion? Like no matter how hard you press on the gas pedal, you can't get the car to go the flippin' speed limit?! That's how I feel today. The kicker is that I went to bed early! WTF? I don't mean I went to bed a few minutes early. I went to bed about an hour and a half early! That is so unlike me, but I was tired.
This time of year I have to go into work an hour early for about a month to do hearing tests on the guys I work with before they go out into the plant and get exposed to all of that noise. Now this wonderfully cheerful Taurus is not a morning person, people. Making me get up an hour early is no small feat. Picture how cranky Garfield can be when roused from a sound sleep, and that is how I feel when my THREE alarms go off. Yes, I set three alarms to get my ass moving. Two are on my clock (one beeping and the radio alarm) and one on my phone. Honestly, it's usually the phone that wakes me, but I won't take that chance.
So this is week two of this early morning crap, and I have 3 more to go. Joy! And there's a week that gets skipped so this happy feeling probably won't go away until the middle of December when I can get back on a decent schedule. The one plus to the situation is that I get off work an hour earlier, but I would give that back in a heartbeat to turn those alarms off and get an extra hour of sleep in the morning. I would rather stay up until 5 a.m. than get up at 5 a.m. The sun isn't even up at 6 a.m. yet! Why should I be?
Thoughts? Are you one of those annoying morning people who smile at me when I get to work an hour early?
