I've been having some dreams about work recently which has really caused me to lose sleep the last few nights. :P It's upsetting to me, not only because of the lack of sleep it's caused, but because I spend almost all of my waking hours worrying about work - I don't need to do it in my subconscious too! :P Hopefully my unpleasant situation at work will end soon and I can finally get a decent night's rest. :P

In sad (for me) travel news, Aloha Airlines announced that they're discontinuing their direct flights to Burbank. :( That used to be my favorite flight (which I literally used to fly 6 times a year.) :( I'd jump off the plane, into a rental at the airport, and be at my hotel (which was 5 minutes away) all in less than 30 minutes. :P And since I hate flying through LAX, I guess now I'll have to fly into John Wayne (which isn't the most convenient when I always stay in the Burbank area). :P

And for some reason, I've been in a slump recently - completely unmotivated to do anything after work. :P I'm not sure it's all due to my work stress, but I wish I could just snap out of it. I have so many things I need to do for Kevin & Julie's sites, a couple of exams that I need to buckle down and actually study for, and a whole bunch of clutter that needs sorting through in our storage room, but I just seem to lack the motivation these days to actually do anything. :P

Sorry for the downer of a post - I'm usually not this depressing. Work is really starting to get to me. :P Isn't it Friday, yet? :P

But before I leave for work, on a MUCH happier note - I wanted to wish a very happy birthday to conchispa!!! Hope you have a wonderful day!! :D

I'm sorry to hear about work stress. I wish there was some switch we can turn on and off to leave work at work!

Forcing yourself to get some exercise might really help - it'll be a source of stress release and also help you become exhausted enough to sleep through the night. I know it's hard to motivate yourself after work but if you FORCE yourself, you might be very happy you did!

I think you're definitely right - exercise will help a lot! I started working out again (after the new year), but then stopped with everything going on at work - the later hours and the emotional exhaustion made it hard for me to get motivated to exercise. But you're right, I do generally feel in a more upbeat mood when I work out. Thanks so much for your comment! :)

Yes, Friday is just around the corner!!
I hope you feel better later, Sheri. :D

*Hugs* I'm very sorry to hear that all, Sheri.

Perhaps it sounds a little odd and it's really not easy but Kenna Clair could be right. To exercise made me feel better, even if it never helped in regard to nightmares.

You are in my thoughts Sheri and, yes, Friday is not far away. Hope you feel better, soon!

*Love and hugs*

Thanks so much, Sabine! :)

I definitely think you two have a great point about exercise! :) I've been so bad about working out recently and I've just gotten more and more into a slump. :P I'll definitely have to start it up again. :)

Thanks so much for always being so sweet, Sabine! :D

Much love and *HUGS* to you and Micki! :)

Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 28th, 2005 07:35 am (UTC)
I'm usually a go-getter, but lately I've been feeling tired and uninspired all the time. I think I need a swift kick in the butt. ;)

Im going to be selfish...... and tell you, that I am 10 minutes from John Wayne.... so the next time you come out.... there is NO excuse we cant meet. I will even meet you at the airport or something and we can have dinner or lunch or something on your way to Burbank. Im SOOOOOOOO close to John Wayne!!!!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 28th, 2005 07:39 am (UTC)
Ten minutes? :D Wow! We have to meet up the next time I fly into John Wayne! :) I probably won't fly into John Wayne until after March (when the Burbank flights end) :) I'd love to finally meet you! :D

LOL you could fly into Ontario Airport. It's about 20 mins. from my house. I'm kidding of course. :) I understand you not wanting to fly into LAX though... YUCK!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 28th, 2005 07:41 am (UTC)
Haha!! I should fly into Palm Springs and see you on my way out! ;) I hate flying to LAX! It's so crowded and it's such a hassle - it's why I like to fly into LaGuardia in NY rather than JFK. :P Really big airports are awful! :P
karmastyxkarmastyx on January 28th, 2005 05:56 am (UTC)
BTW I hope you can get some decent sleep w/out work butting in.

Thank you for b-day wishes!

LAX is evil. I absolutely hate it and avoid it if possible.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 29th, 2005 03:13 pm (UTC)
You're welcome! :D Hope you had a nice day! :)

And I try to avoid flying into LAX if at all possible myself. The exception is when I travel with Mark and he can help me deal with the headache. ;)
