One hell of a week

We have had an absolute shitstorm at work this week, and guess who is on call to take care of it? You got it. So the week we go on call we take the monday off and then take over the calls at 5:00pm. So without working the normal 8 hours during the day monday, I was at 60 hours by this morning. I was up till 6:30 monday and tuesday, 3:00 wednesday, worked from 11-11 in the office yesterday, then straight through to 8am this morning. Today, I went into the office for like 3 hours and here we are. I hope it slows down a little this weekend cause I'm about dead.

Back from the dead

Well, this labor day weekend I was planning on doing nothing. I had a full 4 day weekend, and I was excited for it. My in laws were coming to town for a wedding so that usually means lots of eating and drinking and what have you, and that was fine by me. It was all going to plan except for when I got off work on Thursday evening to start my weekend, something hit me like a truck. I was fine at 5:00 driving home and by 5:30 felt like shit. I managed to go out to eat that night, but by 9 or so I was incapacitated. Friday I literally couldn't get out of bed for most of the day and Saturday my mother in law (former nurse) strongly suggested that I go urgent care. So, I went and waited in line for 45 minutes (I let a couple people go ahead of me cause they were hurt pretty bad) and then sat and had tests run on me for about 2 hours or so. Basically I don't have the flu, strep or anything like that but my white blood cell count was through the roof so they figured I was fighting something. They gave me some drugs and said to sleep, which I've been doing alot of. Today I managed to get out and do some stuff and am feeling quite a bit better, right in time to go back to work tomorrow. Awesome (queue thumbs down and fart noise).
