Endure v. 1. To carry on despite hardships. 2. To suffer patiently without yielding.

Going to sleep is all I can think of.

I don't want to do yet another work-is-wearing-me-down post but here it is.

I had to work several mornings at the crafts store this week in addition to my university job late at night. I got about five hours sleep (or less) each day, four nights in a row.

I'm sleep-deprived but determined.

All I can do is push onward and pray to God this will pay off in the end, someway, otherwise I'll be suffering for nothing.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get up for work in about five hours and can no longer think straight.

But I mustn't fall just yet.

I. Must. Endure.

Hang in there, Dean.

Is there any way you can catch a nap between jobs?

Coming at it from the other end of a work life (semi-retirement), I vote for sleep!

I haven't been around in a while, Dean, but sending you positive energy.... key word: ENERGY! I know it's tough not having a full night of sleep. I keep telling myself that the day will come where I will get to have that regularly, but there is always much to be grateful for, so I wish the same for you!

Endure and Conquer. You can do it!

Thanks for the hugs!



Unfortunately due to my long commute that isn't doable.

But a nap in between jobs is possible if I moved closer to the city....which would be awesome!






I'm so glad to see YOU here!

It reminds me of my early blogging days. I miss seeing what all the other art bloggers are doing.



I hope so!


All of your comments are greatly appreciated!

I hope the weekend brought you some rest - its so hard to juggle everything when your life demands so damn much of you - this I know for sure!

Well, I'm hoping as I'm typing this you are safely asleep and having wonderful dreams up there! :)

Thank you, Randy!



Life's a juggling act!



I got some sleep but not a lot.


Thanks to all of you for stopping by!
