Ten reasons I should be paid to stay home

10. I’m more of a night person than a day person. Thus, it could be seen as intrusion into my ‘beliefs’ to make me work on any day ending in ‘day’. They all do, so I really should stay home.

Detox and Disability

Ok, so I’m detoxing myself. Boring, huh? Yeah, well not really. When you can’t move around easily, such adventures take planning.

I’m drinking about 1.5 litres of water a day. That’s a lot for me. I used to drink two glasses a day, if that. Initially, I was running to the loo every 5 seconds … now it’s about every hour or so.

Upon reflection

I had a number of epiphanies this morning. It could have been caused by a lack of sleep – I went to bed at 11 pm (homecare late shift) and got up at 6 am (homecare early shift) – it could also be the result of too much coffee, but either way …

Firstly, I really want shoulder dips. You know that natural dip in people’s shoulders that is handy for keeping straps up? Mine aren’t pronounced because my shoulders are muscly and, well, my straps fall down so I’d like some. If someone could get me some, I’d be grateful. Fingers that splay are handy for drying a manicure.
