My Long Week

Each week seems to have its challenges. But this week seems to have presented more than normal. My week starts on Friday. It all started when the neighbors began putting on a new roof last Friday. Most people wouldn't even have noticed. But I am a day sleeper. I was awakened to hammering and sawing. And the big one Mexican polka music. I got up because sleep was out of the question. And I thought to myself surely they will complete the roof today.

Saturday morning arrived and there were those sounds from the day before. Ugh, another day with no sleep. This was going to create a challenge. I would have to be careful. My temper flares easily when I am tired. But I survived with nothing upsetting me at work.

I prayed for rain on Sunday. And my prayer was answered. I got a good sleep. I went to work that night thinking this will be a normal Sunday. I was wrong. This seemed like a day that was the real catch-up day from the holiday the week before. There was a lot of work. There is some work at my job that I know how to do but I don't have to do often. Therefore I am not really good at it. Sunday night I got to do that work. And of course I was assigned the huge project of the day. I groaned and somehow survived the night.

Then Monday arrived. Monday's always seem to be horrific at work. There is always extra work that needs done. The evening started out well. There was a lot of work, but it has been worse. Then there was a point in the evening when I looked up and I realized there were only two of us doing the work. There are normally a dozen. There was no way we would get the work completed on time.

So this has been my long week, but there is an up side to all of this. Today is the last day of the work week so no matter what happens it's going to be a great day.
