Life is kind of back to normal now. Got to work at 4am, as usual, and pushed myself very hard, as usual. Got most of my assigned tasks done; one I couldn't do because we had no product to put out on the display, and one I just ran out of time for. Went to the grocery store near work and picked up lunch and cilantro for the guinea pig, then wasted time looking around the ethnic food aisles. The stores are in a neighborhood with a high population of Hispanics, so there is half an aisle of just Goya products (yum) and Jarritos soda (I wish they made a diet soda--the tamarind is so good but so sugary) and various and sundry other Mexican and Spanish brands. The next aisle is Indian, German, Irish/British, Polish, Kosher, and Middle Eastern. I saw something new--flattened rice--and promised myself I'd look up recipes for it.
I am, however, tired. The push at work really wears me out. I wanted to take a nap but I had to go to my volunteer job playing with rabbits and guinea pigs at the local humane society shelter. I always enjoy that. I'm still sleepy now, but I did muster up the energy to make a simple dinner.
I have finally been able to sleep at night recently. Last week was all insomnia. This week I've been sleeping like a rock.
Life does go on, even if we want it to stop.
