Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrred! But Happy

This shift of Days about killed me.  I haven’t slept enough any of the three nights so I’ve been sleep-walking all day each day.  Then I’ve been having problems with my eyes dry and hurting, headaches and sinus pressure.  And I started my diet over again Friday so that hasn’t helped give me any energy to cope with no sleep.  My body is out of the habit of shift work, I think, since I was off work so long with my total hip replacement.  At my age, it doesn’t adjust as quickly as when I was younger. 
I have a life now that I didn’t have when my body was young enough to actually enjoy all the things I’m trying to do now.  And I still have 18 months before I retire so I have no choice but to keep going.  If I could retire today I think I’d feel just fine living the life I have, volunteering where/when/how I do.  I have more than enough to keep me happy and occupied.  But at least I have something to look forward to; I never have had before.  There was never a rosy future to dream about; just more work after more work until I couldn’t work any longer.  Now I have a life and a dream to look forward to…….way to go, Ronnie Lindsey!
