I have had a very busy weekend. I am very tired. I slept very little on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Today I need to prepare for a presentation that I am to give at 2:00 this afternoon, followed by my quarterly presentation to Governing Body tomorrow. Oh, I am going to be praying today! I need to be on top of my game, not so tired I can barely see straight.
On Friday evening, after working all day on the materials for the presentation, I could not save the document. It would not save to the network, to the hard drive, to a flash drive, or a CD. It had done this earlier in the day, I called ITS, they came and looked and said "sorry, you just lost that document", but you should not have any further problems... ha. At 5:30 p.m, it just would not save and there was no one to call. So, I just shut off my computer and left. Sometimes I just have to remind myself that I make a pretty decent wage regardless of how well I am enjoying myself, or how well things are going. So, on Friday, I could say that at least I made a living wage for the day.
And today I better get to work at a decent time, and put in a full day, doing my work to the best of my ability with the resources available to me. I can thank God that I have a full life that some times cuts into my precious sleep time.
