What a crazy weekend!!

And that is Not in a fun and crazy way!!! I was on-call and we had everything happen; fire alarms going off at 1am, burst pipes, a death, an almost drowning and flooding of two suites, a severe staff shortage and intruders last night at midnight. I am exhausted. Yesterday was my girlfriend's birthday and we went for brunch but I had to go in and work all afternoon. I feel like I need a holiday from my "Long Weekend"!!
I am feeling very sleep deprived - dealing with issues until 2am and then they call with more at 6am. All my girlfriends are telling me that this is just preparing me to be a parent. Yikes!!!! I couldn't really work yesterday because I couldn't focus - I was more or less a body at the reception desk to answer phones and deal with questions. It feels like I have had a few drinks, not a bad feeling but the headaches have started today and Advil is now my best friend!!! The worst is, I have to go back to work tomorrow and try and get things done. At least they pay me for that. This whole "On-Call" thing is really a volunteer job as it wasn't part of my initial job and due to the fact that I am on salary, they haven't factored it in at all. Brutal.
So, there you have it. I think that I am ready for parenthood after this past weekend! Just kidding. Congrats to Colleen, Bob and family on purchasing your new home (almost!!!). Love you guys!!
