Well. My department is decimated by illness and injury. There are 9 of us. Six are down with the sick or back injuries. Two are away on family emergencies. That leaves...me...and believe me, I don't have any God complex or think I'm indispensable or that anyone will remember I stepped up to help out when times were tough. I'm really annoyed. I am, of course, getting paid for my time. Still, I have no desire to work 5 12-hour shifts this week. And on top of that, to have to stay late because my relief needs a 'light assignment' - meaning that someone else has to work a heavy assignment - yeah, I'm annoyed. Okay, enough of that.
Just had a large plate of carnitas with all of the fixings and thought about all the people here who have also enjoyed carnitas this past week. I have one more meal left, and then I will give that recipe a rest. Three huge pork butts in two weeks is enough for any one person! Also had a plain leafy green salad, a tapioca bread all crisped up in the oven, a clementine, and am now tucking into a cup of turmeric tea.
Did an unusual thing this morning. Left work and went to the pool. Swam for only 10 minutes - a class was going to start - and went in the sauna. Good long hot shower and then home. You might think I would be very tired and relaxed, but actually I was all energized. Slept for 4 1/2 hours.
