That's the only way to describe my current feeling. Usually I don't tire easily. No matter how hard I work, it's like I have reserves of energy that I can tap into if need be...except at school, but that's because school sucks the life force out of me like a Dirt Devil sucks up crumbs.
My work is having an audit today, and sadly, we had to clean it from top to bottom yesterday. If we don't pass the audit today, my job will be shut down and I'll have to start applying elsewhere, so naturally the place had to be spotless. For some bizarre reason, they scheduled 4 high school kids to close, knowing all along that it would take hours to clean the store as thoroughly as they wanted it cleaned. Work closes at 10. I worked from 5 when I went in to 1 in the morning. We finally finished and I got to go home, but I was so tired I couldn't sleep. I tossed and turned for an hour, and finally tried to read to make myself fall to sleep faster. Nope. When I finally fell asleep at around 3 in the morning, I had nightmares all night about being trapped at work, and random bad things happening. A few I can recall were people setting off firecrackers in the building, a 3 foot tall demented clown with two inch long fangs chasing me, and then an entire flood of zombies trying to break down the door. Needless to say, I didn't sleep well. Then I had to get up at 6:30 and get in the shower and then I had to go to school. The worst news? I have to close tonight too! So I'll be working until 10:30 PM, I'll get home around 11, and I'll be so tired that I'll barely be able to more.
Here's hoping that I survive. Tomorrow is my first day off since Sunday.

You've had a tough day, and nightmares are there to tell you something. Demented, fanged clowns? Firecrackers?

My prescription? A long tall glass of your favourite alcoholic beverage and a good lie down.

BTW, I love the photo background - so full of potential stories.

Thanks, I went to bed as soon as I got home last night, but I'm still tired. But today's my day off so I should feel better in no time.

Thanks, I received that photo in an e-mail and fell in love with it.
