It is NOT Saturday!

It struck me about 1100 this morning that today is Friday, not Saturday. The long list of everything I needed to do prior returning to Craig Joint Theater Hospital for another run of PDHAs did not need to be finished in the next hour. I have (minus the time for a promotion ceremony) untill 1700.  

Somehow the two days have gotten blurred together in my mind. Sometimes I think that the Battle update is this morning, other times I know it is tomorrow. I did get a solid six hours of sleep last night which was excellent. (If those jets flew 100 feet over my head, I obviously did not hear them).   My panic level has dropped a bit, and I have managed to shovel out two of my desk drawers while steadily making my way through the projects which have piled up in my in-box. My to-do prior to departing theater has now stretched beyond the length of my arm. This is one time when being an ostritch would really bite me.  

So anyway, I have this list of about 30 critical items none of which seem to change. None of which I can manage to finish. And, my retirement orders were wrong and still need to be fixed.  

Any who – I have sometime this afternoon, prior to noon tomorrow, then I hit the road again till the end of next week.

    This is a feeling I definitely recognize and sympathize with. I will
    not pester you, just wishing you the best, energy, and a few miracles.
    Trust that you are in God’s hand. Sometimes there is just no other way
    to look at things. ((hugs))!

    .this proves that you are slowly shifting into retirement mode. Happens to me once in a while, still happens to Deb at least once a week. Pretty soon you’ll see it happening more and more often, but more so on weekdays. It’s the ‘What Day is it’ syndrome, it is not cureable…enjoy.

    Considering where you are and what your life has been like lately, you’re entitled to mix up a day or two, (((Holly)))!

    I know the feeling; it seems like I spend at least ten hours a day every duty day giving my job my level-headed best and the list only gets longer.
