Back to Tired Again

I wish it was possible to determine exactly why I don't get a good sleep from time to time. When I finally went to bed last night, I was actually quite tired (up to and including that heaviness in my chest), had just showered, so I was still all nice and clean and dry, was in a good mood from having gone to hang out with Squeeze and Evo, as well as from a good laugh over sending Evo a squirrel in Skype (it makes sense in context, and for what it's worth, Squeeze encouraged me to, so she could see his reaction~), but then I laid down, and so far as I can tell, never really actually got into restful sleep. I slept from ~7:30 'til ~3:30, which is a full eight hours, but I still feel tired in spite of that, and the only possible reason I can come up with is that there was too much on my mind. Most of it is related to not having replied to Dan again yet, because I did read his reply when I got home from work yesterday, but it's frustrating. Not only am I slightly thrown off by being done early yesterday instead of Saturday (on the way home, it really felt like "tomorrow" - after I went to bed and woke up again - would be Sunday), but I'm more tired than I should be, and have a full 7~8 hour shift ahead of me. Fun. I suppose I should be glad that I at least took care of my extra cleaning yesterday...

Not five minutes after I walked in, Laura came back to tell me that Mary wanted to know if I would stay 'til 1 to do some extra cleaning - the hoods, and wall behind the fryers / other equipment, specifically. I agreed, because I didn't think it would be a big deal to stay that extra hour, but while I was changing into my uniform, started to think about how it would go if Manoah was alright with orders on his own, so I could take care of that cleaning early. I went up front, and asked him what I would be on instead of just presuming, at which everything else I had been planning went right out the window, when he said Tom would be on line between 8 and midnight, as a result of requesting as much from Manoah on Thursday. I fussed, saying that I didn't think one hour would be enough to do all the cleaning assigned to me, and we compromised, to the effect of that I would do drive through until 11, then Tom would take over, and I'd have two hours to clean. Then Tom came in, and apparently Manoah told him I didn't want to be on drive through or something and there was a bit of an issue about that, but I did it until 11:00 anyway. After that, I set about cleaning, and pretty much proved my concerns valid, not finishing what had been asked of me until ~12:45. It would've been alot faster if I didn't have to wash all the parts of the hoods, which took at least 45 minutes on its own, but everything got done, and I left a little before 1. From there, I went home, checked with Squeeze as to whether or not she was in the mood for company again, and by ~2:00 was on my way over there. It was kind of a rushed walk, because I wanted to see if I could make it there before Evo, who was also on his way over, and as it turned out, I beat him quite handily, making it there before he'd even left. Apparently Totts was too tired to go anywhere, so it was just the three of us, but we had a pretty good time in spite of that. Squeeze and I mostly just played Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 - I discovered that I'd left the first one in her Wii, to which she said she wished she'd known sooner, because she started wishing she'd asked to borrow it before I left - and I ended up going home before Evo for once, then had a shower and such else, as noted above.

I highly doubt anything of the sort will be happening tonight - at absolute best, I'd have all of an hour there, but what I should really be concerned about is work. I can bring an energy drink, and will, at that, but fatigue will probably be a problem all the same (at least until ~2:30), so... yeah. I also told Tom last night that I'd try to figure out how much a chocolate chip cheesecake pie would be, because he was asking about it before, so I should try to think of the ingredients on the way there or something. $20? $25? I'm not sure, but I don't have the time to wonder about that. Here's hoping for a good night, and that I can remain reasonably awake until I get home. Anything I have to do here can wait until tomorrow, but I have to get work out of the way first...

    Prediction: I'll end up becoming too tired to stay awake before I've finished writing, and by the time tomorrow gets here and I'm sat with my laptop…

    It's only 9am and already I'm in bed, probably for the night. What is life. I've been awake since 7am as well, and within the last hour, was still…
