    Eyelids got kind of heavy a few nights driving back to the building. Freaking hate that feeling.

    I nodded off on my way back on Wednesday around 11:45 while driving. My head tilting to the side jolted me up. Besides that the wear and tear is adding up, usually walking about ten miles a day with no helper. Hit 68 hours this week.

    Yes.
    Damn UPS driver has been ringing my doorbell around 8pm most nights. Wakes me up from my nap which leaves me a bit drowsy when I have to drive to work at 6am the next day.
