I haven't seen a pretty blue sky in awhile. I took this about a month ago. The weather has been dreary all week. Now that the time change is in effect back to Eastern Standard Time, usually it's already getting dark out when I head out to work. I'll have a tougher time getting out earlier for more daylight pics.
I got up late on Day Off. The movie "Armegedon" with Bruce Willis, Liv Tyler, n Ben Affleck was playing again. That movie is so emotionally charged, n I got sucked in for about the twentieth time yet again. "We win Gracey," I feel it everytime. A man who doesn't know how to fail, saves the planet with his personal sacrifice, so others may survive. The power of determination and love wins against long odds.
I feel so drained. I raked the drain outside so many times I can't count. The forest of leaves is all over the road. What a long work-week, second in a row going to complete exhaustion. Why do I keep doing this? I think I don't know how to quit. I should be lazy, but I'm not. I should get off my tired feet, but keep walking on the blisters. I should sleep the entire time off, but make myself get out the door for errands before places close to check them off the list.
The Energizer Bunny keeps going n going... I do too, until I'm allowed to collapse. Tomorrow another week of work begins with an early shift- One Day Off isin't enough to get to what I'd like to accomplish. Time is flying past me before I can catch my breath...

I hope you are sleeping while I write this and dreaming happily.

I'm trying to type really really quietly so as not to wake you up. Did I do a good job?

JanFun, The typing didn't wake me, but the alarm did. Even tho I know I need to go to sleep earlier, my body won't cooperate. i've been having anxiety dreams again, darn!

David, Thank you for your prayer. Everyone at work (Portuguese folks) think I'm crazy already- for working so hard!

One day, you will rest, but until then... work it girl!
