I am beginning to feel burned out. Work has been hard lately. When I come home, I am so tired. I take a shower, help put the kids to bed then go to sleep. My kids wake me up early the next morning and I have no energy. I try to mask my fatigue with coffee and diet coke but today nothing worked. I really just need some good old fashioned sleep.
My husband just called and said he was coming home from work early. He is so lucky. I can't remember the last time I got to come home from work early. Yesterday, my work called me at 5:00am to say I had been staff reduced until 1:00pm. I was so happy. Both of my kids were going to daycare and I was finally going to have a morning to myself. But my work called again at 6:30am saying that someone called in sick at the last minute, so I had to go to work. They also proceeded to give me the worst assignment ever.
I know I should be thankful that I have a job, but it's hard sometimes. I really need a vacation to help me recharge. I wish I could have a mental health day.
