What a week

I just finished my fourth twelve-hour nightshift in a row this morning and I have since only had a little over an hours sleep. I had to take the other half to a hospital appointment as soon as I got home and I just wasn't tired after that.

I had pretty much just gone to bed when my mother called, she has been ill recently but had been on the mend. She sounds awful and has had the doctor out to see her who wanted to take her into hospital but as usual she refused she hates hospitals. The doctor couldn't hear anything in her chest but still thinks her symptoms mean she has a chest infection, pneumonia or pleurisy. She doesn't want me to go down and see her just now, she says she is better on her own. I am not convinced that's for the best but on the other hand I know I haven't slept anywhere near enough to make me safe to drive. I think I have had a total of a little over an hours sleep between the attempt at sleep before mum phoned and the small nap I accidentally took on the chair which prompted me to go to bed in the first place.

Since I haven't been on the computer for five days I have a lot of catching up to do. My blog needs updated and I really need to catch up with what everyone is doing on here. I also have many outstanding notifications and job offers on oDesk since I stupidly forgot to set my profile on to unavailable, my response time rating will have suffered since I have not replied in 24 hours and one of them has actually expired but what can I do?

I apologise to anyone who left me a comment or wrote a post any more than two days ago, I only seem to have the last two days worth of notifications on my activity feed.

Wow, that sounds like a very busy week indeed. I am glad to hear your mother is doing better. After you get everything buttoned up, you should take a nap.

I am currently debating whether to go for a nap just now or just stay up for a few more hours and get an early night. I actually don't feel too tired so I might just stay up, I have plenty to keep me busy.

I've noticed as well that the activity feed now only goes back two days... I wonder why.
And... a little advice from someone who messed up her health (when young) due to lack of sufficient sleep: Catch up as much as you can as soon as you can! Hope your mother gets well soon!

I will definitely be going to bed early tonight, I tried taking a nap but I couldn't get back to sleep so as soon as I get tired again I will just head for an early night I think.

Definitely sounds like the busy week. I hope that you'll be able to rest for the next few days or so.

Sounds like it is time to rest for a little while, you have had a long week

Not to worry about keeping up here. You need to rest and take care of yourself. We will remain happy to see you whenever you have the time. I hope your mother gets better soon.

There was a poll recently from &eiltecides and MaeLou which asked for users' preferernces on the length of archive in the notification feed. I think I voted for 3 days but as you say, it seems to be less than that at times.

Now, go and get some SLEEP, girl!
