Exhausted

1,440 views

These last two weeks have been crazy. Christmas activities combined with work ramping up have left me completely exhausted. One of the mechanics at work retired a couple of months ago and the work has been slowly backing up. On top of that, we had a couple of additional projects that needed to be done: first a soda machine needed to be installed last Thursday which involved working overnight and being awake for almost 24 hours, and a store closing just before Christmas which involved 40 hours of work this past Monday-Wednesday. I even worked a full day Christmas Eve before heading out for family stuff. Didn't get any rest on the weekends due to shopping, family stuff, and more work. Couldn't even enjoy the warm weather because I've been too tired to do anything golf-related.

I'm absolutely exhausted and this weekend isn't nearly long enough for rest.

Join the club. Client pressures, deadlines, customers threatening to sue clients - 'tis the Holiday Season. Being a single parent, it's worse getting ready for Christmas and cooking for Christmas Eve. My back was so sore I went on the Teeter board, and then hit the floor with back exercises. Took double vitamins. Need a vacation after the "vacation." We will get over it.

I hope so. The work isn't going to get easier because I don't see them hiring anyone else to help out. Hopefully I'll get a decent raise to ease the pain a little.

Most pleased. Still a lot of work ahead of me, but I got to see what I can do when I'm hitting the ball well. Scores should continue to drop next year.

I'm exhausted, too, but it's because I've been sick the last week and a half or so.  I have three days of work this week and then a week or so ahead of me that should be slow and then it'll ramp up and I'll likely be putting in more hours.

Where's @rkim291968 to share how tired he's going to be in retirement. :-$

Actually I'm feeling a bit of a sinus infection coming on now, but other than that I'm feeling a bit better. Got to work on my swing for an hour today and it was good to be able to do something I wanted to do as opposed to things I needed to do.

Nice.

Yeah, my gf and I went to her parent's place in Vermont a week ago Saturday and got back yesterday.  I took my net and mat with me with the intention of using it a few times but because of bad weather and my not wasn't feeling well, I ended up only using it once which sucked.  I'm excited at the prospect of hitting the range this week and hopefully playing Saturday (if the good weather holds)!
