Oh. Wow.
November 13, 2008

Other half's alarms begin going off around 3:10 a.m. Her "Oh Shit" alarm (on MY alarm clock, so 'tis impossible for me to ignore it) goes off at 3:45 a.m.

I leave for work at 7:20 a.m.

Yes. I have four hours between getting up and going to work.

Other half leaves at 4:30 a.m. I can only "nap" in 2 hour segments, which means that I would have to fall asleep instantly the moment she leaves in order to be up in time to get ready for work myself. Except she talks loudly and constantly and narrates everything that is happening (either to me or if i tell her to hush, she talks just as loudly to the dogs - without even realizing what she's doing). Hence, falling back asleep instantly is impossible.

This means I have to go to bed by 7:30 p.m. at the latest in order to get the requisite eight hours of sleep I need to be a functioning human being.

Damn. I forgot how complicated this having a job thing was.

So yeah. I'm exhausted and my body hates me.

I know. Scintillating blog fodder, isn't it? Hmph. Bite me. I'm tired and cranky and I just want some freaking SILENCE and SLEEP.

/me crawls off to bed and contemplates making myself deaf so I can have some peace.

(no, not really. geez. I'm just tired and fussy.)

My hubs won't turn off his alarm clock... ever. I am tempted to hit him with it to shut it off, probably still won't turn off the alarm. I hope you find your peace and quiet... and hope you're still enjoying the new job.
