But then I woke up at 5 in the morning with no alarms! (fully 7.5 hours of sleep, too) Took a shower, worked more efficiently than in my entire life and managed to finish ALL* OF MY DUE-SUNDAY WORK BY 9:30 AM, made it to the test-scoring place and logged 4 hours there** so now I am entered in the drawing for a gift card, which has been my singular desperate dream since the contest was announced Thursday night. And I got back on track with all my other plans after that, too.
*with the exception of one mega-difficult one that ended up needing 2 contacts and I was not surprised I had to hold it over. That'll still be another hour.
**a strap on my sandal broke as soon as I got there, so I was pretty much limping around to keep it on my foot. Also about an hour into the test-scoring work I got hit with overwhelming cramps and realized, oh yeah, that's why I was so tired and achey yesterday. Luckily I had emergency supplies with me with and also pain pills, because I did not plan for that. But I finished the whole 4 hours in spite of multiple attempts by the universe to throw me off.
The moral of the story is, I am a gosh-dang CHAMP. I have accomplished 19 hours of work this weekend between the two jobs, while fighting off Midol-requiring symptoms, and I'm still in a relatively good mood and only a tiny bit behind on my regular work! Six more nights and then I WILL HAVE AN ENTIRE REGULAR-SIZED WEEKEND OFF.
