Itís good people found various ways to keep me busy today, because something in my mind wasnít working quite right. Iím usually a fairly decent self-starter, but if I hadnít had a push here and there, I might not have moved at all. Once I got going, I was okay until I lost my mind again. Sometimes itís okay not to be left alone. Just donít ever tell anybody I said that.
Part of the reason was the usual, lack of sleep. But the reason for the lack of sleep was different. I went to bed with an awful headache last night. I thought sleep would actually help, and it might have if Iíd been able to cross over (as they donít say). I donít know how much sleep I got, but when I woke up this morning the headache was worse, and I finally decided to do something about it.
After a couple of extra-strength whatevers, and half an hour or so to let them work, my head no longer ached. So now all I had to deal with was the residual problem of not enough sleep, together with a determined lack of motivation. The Boss, as usual, came through. I got a six-page proposal letter to type, but at least he didnít wait until after hours to fax it this time.
