I came into work today despite getting maybe an hour, hour and a half's worth of sleep, because Monday we are shorthanded. I have over 20 days vacation time which I NEVER take. The auditor was coming in. It was my boss's first day back from vacay. ETc. Etc.

I came into work, despite my zombie like condition and worked my ass off.

And my fucking co-worker that also works 4 days a week, like everyone else, takes off at 2:45 for a "consultation" appt for her son (meaning: the kid's not dying or in dire straits, etc etc.) Meaning; this could have been done when we're not short handed, and being audited, etc. etc. OH - OR ON HER DAY OFF!


WTF??????

Where is my fucking medal?!

And what about you? What do you deserve a medal for?

now I'm going back to work for another 45 minutes.

But I'm not happy about it.

You need to take some of those vacation days, Bettielee. Imagine how much writing you could get done. :)

I deserve a medal for running outside in the middle of the night to rescue a newborn kid, which meant climbing the fence, twice, and then helping put up a tarp to protect the new mom and baby in their new digs, despite my back having been out and still hurting. Then, sitting out with them for an hour in cold trying to get the little guy to stand and nurse. But his mom wasn't producing milk and he was too weak to stand, so this morning I called another farmer who raises goats and drove out into the country to take the little kid to him so he could bottle feed it colustrum and give it a shot, then driving it back home and putting it in a box in my bathroom with a heating pad and trying to feed it every two hours. But finding out it was feeling better and when it stood, taking it back to it's mom to nurse. Yes, she is finally producing milk, thank the powers that be, and he is standing nursing! I have done this twice so far, take him out, let him nurse, bring him back in and warm him back up. My back is killing me. Ouch.

Where is my frackin' medal???

Awwww! I feel for ya big time. It's really difficult to go to work when you haven't slept. I want a medal b/c my husband went fishing last week-end, came home Sunday night and then left again Monday morning to work out of town. We have two kids under two who NEVER sleep. In fact here it is 2:45 in the morning and I'm sitting on the living room floor with a 4 month old. I haven't slept more then an hour at a time in, well, this will be night 5. I feel like throwing a big temper tantrum right now!!!!!!

So, I'm officially creating a "didn't sleep at all but still functioned normally at work the next day despite being eye-crossingly exausted" medal.

You are officially the first recipient :)

I've been awake most of the night. I wrote about 3k words and goofed around here for awhile. Now my kids are getting ready for school. After they've gone I have to go to an appointment with my neurologist. I work tonight and my legs hurt. Is that at least worth a ribbon? How about a gold star? Prelicked chocolate? Anything?
