Do you know the feeling of tiredness when you can not sleep for all the thoughts going through your head?

I´ve been working flat-out for the past two weeks, 12-14 hours per day. Tomorrow will be my last day, and then I´ll be on leave for a week.

My desk is – hmm – let´s say, lighter, not clustered anymore, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. But is it really worth it, all the overtime, unpaid I might add, for a weeks leave, during which I know I will get phone calls and mails to answer anyway?

And the thought of coming back to “Harry half-job” – having to go through everything just because my colleague can´t follow it through to the end – yuck!

I´ve started drinking energy again, not a good sign.


I am your average wife,mother,friend,employee....a bit lost in my world, a bit crazy at times but always good for a laugh - I think ;-)

    Well, Craze, I believe you. Can’t relate too much because sleep has always been my escape. I sit amidst unemployment, to the point I’m thinking a bunch of part time jobs to fill the void of money. I do understand Half Job Harrys though. My one part time gig is with myself as a writer, so I don’t have that issue. I wish you well, and a new fulfilling career.

      Hiya Rob, It must be really hard not having a job at the moment, sorry, my rambling on about being fed-up with mine seems stupid in comparisson. Thanks for your good wishes and I hope you find a good job soon, in the meantime, keep up your blog, ´cause I like it 😉


  2. I can so relate to you. Being a teacher, I always have to bring work home… nonstop. And, of course, it is unpaid. Just make sure you do not lose sleep, then you will get burned out. Your energy and health is much more important. If you do not eat right and get sleep, you will definitely become burnt out. My first two years of teaching were hell because i dedicated my whole life to work work work. Now, I make sure to eat healthy and sleep eight hours. If I cannot get to everything, then oh well. My health is much more important. Not only is my desk cluttered, my whole life is cluttered. I think I will post pictures of my laundry pile and office filled with papers. My husband and I call our laundry pile, mount laundry. At times, life can become overwhelming, so it is good that you blog. It is your place to vent, and to escape. I always make crafts and knit. It helps me to relieve stress. Make sure to take care of you.

    Thank you for your kind words 🙂 My pal is a teacher, too, so anyone giving me the well worne saying “teachers only work part-time” usually get a good kicking from me 😉
    I had a “mild” burn out last year, it certainly scared me and I am trying to take it easier at work. You are right, my blog certainly helps me to switch off, I really enjoy blogging and reading about other peoples lives. I think you and me would make a good team when it comes to cluttered lifes. Can you imagine what my laundry is like with a husband and 3 boys – lol – I rest my sad case 😉
