Our lovely home is being pressure washed (mold takes over the world up here!) at 9 a.m. DD overslept and woke me at 7 to take her to work - she is supposed to walk (she is usually very responsible). Meanwhile, I had finally broken down and taken a sleeping pill at 4. Good thing it is a small town! Now I am falling asleep at 9:30, supposed to be packing my classroom for deep cleaning 3 days ago, my sweet boss is always at school between 6 and 7 a.m. and gets less sleep than I do. grr . . . I feel I must try to get some more sleep and go in to work at 2. I feel a bit paralyzed, but I simply cannot go to work now and be effective at all, with such sleep deprivation - maybe got 3-4 hours last night. sigh. And the pressure washers are LOUD and the water is loud. I am on the verge of a pity party, and I am not one to shirk my work duties. Guess I just want someone to 1) feel sorry for me and/or 2) give me some great advice on how to pack up my room - yep, every item - in a hurry. Also last evening was a killer - lots of grieving going on in our household, and I am the supporting character. I just want to go to sleep for about 4 weeks. Not a good sign, as I have to fight depression. Anyone?
