    Yeah, and another thing is living in a very small town, I'm kinda afraid to date someone without really knowing them first, as a friend or at church or something because it could be really awkward. Of course the problem is there really aren't any single men, so it hasn't been an issue!

    Really tired tonight. I slept this afternoon but should have slept longer. In my new home, it is impossible to darken the room, but I have been using a sleep mask. It works pretty well. But I think I might be just a little worn out, rather stressful week, both emotionally and physically. I need a bit of a recharge - a good 8-10 hr. sleep night is in order, I think.

    One problem I had with my new place is a small refrigerator - definitely not big enough, and just a little tiny freezer. I found a little one online that can be used as either freezer or a fridge, AND it fits in a little built-in cubby. It came today, hurray! I should be all set.

    Busy, busy, busy. The ER is the most popular place in Maine. At least that what it seems like! AND the boiler overheated, the seams expanded, and now there is water leaking everywhere.

    I am tired! But I should be home in four hours. Ate some chicken.

    I'm so thankful I don't work in a hospital any more! I hated working certain holidays because you knew your butt was going to get kicked. Hope you get caught up on your rest today.

    Hi Siobhan (Judith?). Hurray for getting deposit back. And for not having to deal with him anymore. And I am wishing you the best in the men department. Looking for common-interest groups sounds like a great way to go, especially if they aren't centered on dating. Less desperation in the air... I do think putting yourself out there in some way is important. If I were in the market, I would definitely be looking for those kinds of opportunities. Being in a sparsely-populated area definitely complicates the whole issue.

    Whew, back at work. Busy tonight, but nearly as busy as last night, at least so far. The ER is slamming but not as bad as it could be. Mostly tonight is hard because the secretary keeps forgetting to relay the orders to me, leading to stuff not getting done and great confusion. I keep trying to think of something else I can do for a living besides this, but right now I am drawing a blank. Not a whole lot of jobs around here! On the other hand, I am very glad to have this job that allows me to live in this beautiful place and many nights it is actually pretty sweet.

    I'm not going to talk about the food I ate, too boring typing it all out. It was all primal and all good.

    This morning when I drove home I was more tired than I remember being in a very long time. I was fighting to stay awake, which is pretty scary. It is only a 20 minute drive, lovely rural road, no traffic. Also nowhere to pull over. I kept telling myself I would make it but it was obvious I wouldn't. Finally I got to a church, pulled in, put my seat back and passed out for 10 minutes. So my 20 minute drive took 30 minutes, but I made it intact and without injuring myself or anyone else. Don't ever want to do that again! I do have some catching up to do - I am tired out in many ways from the past few weeks, but this too shall pass. I will of course continue unpacking and arranging and making my new home nice and comfortable and hopefully nice to look at, but I'm going to build in a lot of rest and some play also. Of course I still have another night of work besides this one before I can do that. And I'm back at work Sunday night, so that is only two nights off. But all will be well.

    When I am tired like this I can't imagine why I would want to meet a man. I am so looking forward to going home and being alone and having no demands and being with my pets, who conveniently cannot speak English.

    Well, if he is the right kind of man, he would put pillows under your feet, bring you a comforting drink and ask you what you want for dinner... Hey, we can fantasize, right?

    Yes, and he would also cheerfully clean up cat puke - so I don't have to do it after a 12-hour night shift. But it was my own fault. I gave tubby cat a supplement that I usually only give to slim cat and it upset his tummy. Why did I do that? I have no idea. Careless, tired. I was getting the food ready and added the supplement to both dishes. Realized my mistake, but just thought, oh well, Leo will get some too. Bad decision. But he is better now.

    Wow, am I tired. Supposed to have a friend come up from Massachusetts this weekend but I'm not sure he's coming. I kind of hope he doesn't, I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Sounds like those weeks of packing and moving and under-the-surface thinking & worrying and not getting your deposit initially and settling in have caught up with ou and your body needs sleeeeeep and more sleeeeeep. Hope you & the kitties get in lots of extra zzzz's and your friend postpones for another week. I know you aren't but don't ignore these strong signals from your body! Take care!

    You right, I do feel very run down and I know the effect adrenaline can have - or more specifically the effect when it wears off. Something Groka would have been familiar with! I am really, really tired and I would like to just sleep and read and not think about anything for a little while, and I can do that with no guest.

    I have stayed primal with really no problem throughout this whole process, am really happy about this. Yesterday I didn't chart my food until quite late and was surprised to ring in around 1600 calories since I felt I had eaten an awful lot - I ate five times, very unusual for me. I don't snack or feel the urge to but yesterday I was hungry when I got home from work at 7:30 AM so I had some food, then I woke up four hours later hungry again - ate and went back to sleep, woke up, ate again, and so on. But I didn't eat that much for any particular meal, not because I was being delicate but because I got full really fast.

    I finally found some chocolate that doesn't have soy lecithin! Woo-hoo!

    What's wrong with this picture?
    NOTHING!
    Sounds like a great way to rest your body from your recent labors, Siobhan.
