weekly writing assignment


It's Wednesday. The Monday holiday completely threw me and now I'm feeling discombobulated, overworked and under-rested. So why is it that when I read MamaKat's prompts for the weekly writing assignment I chose this one?


"Take a picture of yourself right this minute without primping and explain to us why it is you have not washed your hair today."


As you can clearly see, my unwashed hair is the least of my worries. From the exhausted, half crazy expression on my face (that sadly, is my attempt at a smile) you may surmize that I've HAD IT this week. I have. It always happens on a holiday week: the same number of visits are squeezed in with one less day to accommodate them. Which means less time to complete paperwork and more time spent doing said paperwork after work hours. I hate days where I have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at work.


Plus, the pool closes at noon this week, because of school vacation. So in order to get a swim in, I had to go before work. I am not one of those people who do well exercising before work. I don't feel engergized. I feel exhausted all day.


Now, I find myself simultaneously exhausted and wired, my least favorite combination. And it's snowing again. Oh, I'm exhausted. When is spring?

Bless your heart. I am the same way when I exercise early... wiped out the whole day. Of course, I often 'forget' to do it later in the day...

Hope you get to relax soon!

I alternate between early and late exercise. If I have already woken up sans alarm, it generally peps me up. If i woke via alarm clock to do it - not so good.

The weekend is coming!

Sounds like it's been a rough week for you!!! Hope you can rest some this weekend and unwind.
P.S. I'm so jealous of your blue eyes! I always wanted them!!! I tried contacts once, but my eyes are so dark, they didn't change much.

i get the same thing. well, i didn't get monday off, but that's the only diff. I have to bill out 30 hours every week minimum regardless if there is 3, 4, or 5 days in the work week. and i haven't had a week will less than 3 workdays in about 8 years. it's driving me insane.

your picture of unwashed hair is awful purrty. i work at home so i never get that dressed up. you're making me look bad.

ha, I'm like you too about exercising first thing in the morning. I'd need to go back to sleep. Hopefully you can catch up on rest soon....
