I'm tired, and I hurt, and I'm not 22 anymore.

My body aches.  My ankles are killing me, by legs are screaming, my shoulders are biting into my bones from agony, and...I am tired.  And I've also given up soda in the last 2 weeks, so I'm sure the lack of caffeine is of no help.

We have yet to hire a replacement at work for the person who was let go.  This means my boss and I are the only ones doing the job, and it means working lots of hours.  And the money will help, I'm tired.  I've lost count of how many days in a row I have worked, and the number is going to continue to go up, because I am not going to have a day off for at least 2 more weeks.  Sigh.

It's a good thing I love my job.

That being said.  Tuesdays and Thursdays should be "early out" days for me.  Somehow I found myself not getting home until 4 hours after I normally do.  I don't know where the time went, and I'm pissed that I didn't get to spend any of it with my kids, and I'm just, ugh.

But I know that it will get better soon, and I know that someday we are going to have the perfect person walk in the door and fill out an application, and my boss and I will live MUCH easier lives, and it will all have been worth it.

Until then........I need a nap.
