Running on empty

I feel like I am really running on empty at the moment. It seems like there is always something going on and I don't ever get the time just to sit down and relax or even spend time doing things online. It has been almost six days since my last post on here and when I was writing on the other site it would be unusual if I didn't post even one day never mind six!

We are short staffed at work with someone being suspended and our manager in the process of being moved to another shop. We are really going to struggle when people take their holidays as we are massively short. As such we are all doing bits of overtime and I don't mind if the shifts suit me but I am finding that with less days at home the days I do have I am rushing around like a lunatic and never have time to get online properly. This needs to change.

My son is home poorly from school yesterday and today and we are going to the doctors very soon. I woke this morning and couldn't even get my head off my pillow when my boyfriend left. I think I am totally running on empty and have eight and a half hours at work later on today. I am meant to be going to see my sister at Uni with my cousin this weekend for a night out as well. We are due back Sunday then I am working Monday and Tuesday.

I just want, and need, a bit of a break.

I hope you ca finally get a great rest, it is really hard working that way... and like a super tired worker, it will not help you to focus to other things. God bless. and have a great day.

Overtime is good for the bank balance but bad for the body and mind when you realise, as you have, that you just don't have enough hours in the day. Hope things improve at work soon - if that employee is suspended because they were causing the rest of you grief then that is a good thing, because the last thing you need is grief at work.
