I Can't Sleep Tonight ...

I Can't Sleep Tonight ... 

After working 18-hour shifts and then driving home (75-minutes round trip), I don't even know what day it is, let alone what's the date.  I'm bushed.  Because my adreniene is running rapid and my interal 'clock' is off ...

I Can't Sleep Tonight ...

I Can't Sleep Tonight ... 


Well, I'm finally done with Storm Duty and I am exhasted.  I LOVE working Storm Duty because, after spending 16-hour days for 8-days with the same people, you get to really know the people (that on a normal day at work) you'd just walk by them and say, "Hi" and keep going.

The only thing that I DO NOT like or enjoy about working Storm Duty, is the way you're making the money.  I don't mind the long hours or lack of sleep or even missing a meal or two.  What I DO NOT enjoy is that I am making money because of some other people's misforntune.  When you work storm duty, you really work.  You do things, that on a normal day you'd say, "Sorry, honey, not this girl."  But on Storm Duty you say, "Okay, honey, that's done.  What else can I do for you now?"  I remember one storm, I worked at a very remote location that, the 2nd-shift couldn't make it to relieve us, so we worked a double-shift.  That was (2) 18-hour shifts, back-to-back.  Well honey, at the end of that double-shift, I was ready for a few doubles, if you know what I mean.  Another storm, it was snowing really bad and when I got there, my boss said, "Hey Sugar, go out to the parking lot and direct the snow-plowing operation."  Well, I had never been to this location before, so I was unfamiliar with the site and it's set up.  When the girl plowing the parking lots told me they were running out of space to pile the snow, I looked around and saw this BIG empty spot and told her to pile it there.  Because this way the 1st time working with her, I didn't really know her.  When she got off her plow and starting coming over to me, I really lost it on her.  See, working Storm Duty, there is a awful lot of stress and you need to make decisions on the "fly".  My phone was ringing, my beeper was going off, I didn't have my coat on, people were standing all around me asking me "What should I do" for this, and "What should I do" for that, or "They want you on the conference call right now", and I had to pee really bad and I had my "friend".  To sum it all up, I was not very nice to her and said more or less (and I'll never forget the words because I just watched 'Working Girl' the night before with my girlfriends), "Listen, you dumb bitch, get your boney little ass back on the %$&*ing plow and put the snow where I told you and don't give me any of your sash or you're out of here right now, am I getting through to you, HONEY."  She gave me such a dirty look, then smiled and said, "Yes Ma'am.  I'm sorry, Ma'am." and got back on her plow and started piling the snow where I told her to put it.  I remember, she'd wave at me and smile each time she drove by.  I said to myself, "I really hated to talk to her that way, but sometimes you just don't have time to listen and fully asses the situation.  Actuall, I remeber that I felt a little proud that I made a snappy decision without really knowing all the facts and said to myself, "I think I really earned her respect and showed her 'who's boss'."   After the snow stopped and the plows left, the fuel-truck driver came running over to me and my boss and said, "Hey Sugar, I can't get to the fuel tanks because some a$$hole told the dippy blonde on the plow to pile it there."    It took me over 3-hours to hand-dig to locate and uncover the fill-pipes to the fuel tanks and I broke 3 nails doing it.  It's still funny and Gloria and I still laugh about it all the time.  (Gloria was the "dumb blonde" on the plow).  If fact, we really lost it when she was exchanging vows (I was her Maid of Honor and we were telling the other women in the room how we first met) and we had to delay the ceremony, because we were laughing so hard, we wet our panties.  It took them over an hour to find new pantied for us and to freshen up her gown.  (Oh, that dress was absolutely georgous and she looked stunning.  And her shoes!  OMG).   When she has the baby, I am going to be god-mother to her daughter, Margarette-Anna Lynn (named after her mothe-in-law, who she REALLY despises and she really is a real witch).  Gloria already told me that she's going to call her "Sugar".  How sweet.   Kiss

I Can't Sleep Tonight ...    Kiss
 
Well, Irene came and left without even so much as letting me try on some of her new dresses   In fact, she blew right by so fast, that I didn't even have time to have a couple of drinks with her, have some "girl talk", or go shopping with her for some new ones.  When all of the stores heard that she may be dropping in for a while, they all "boarded up the doors" and turned out the lights.    They have been talking about her for some time now.  She did leave a mess when she left and now I have to clean up "her mess".  Who does she think I am, her own personal maid?  Hardly, honey.  Now, I'm working my fingers to the bone cleaning up the house and shopping for groceries.  And she calls herself "a friend"?  Well, you know what they say when you have "friends like her ... "     Anyway, at least it's giving me a chance to clean out my wardrobe and donate some things to people who really need some help right now.  I pray for each and every one of them and their families, who are suffering because of Irene's mis-guided actions and carelessness.  And for the people who lost their lives because of her, my heart goes out to them and their families during this very tragic and unsettling time we are all experiencing and going through.  Irene ...  you're not a true friend to anyone.  And coming from one who's been called "a bitch" by many, many people and close friends (and most times, deservingly so), Irene, you're a REAL bitch.   Irene, because of you...

I can't sleep tonight

I can't sleep tonight

I can't sleep tonight. 

Agh !  I went to bed at 10:30pm and now it's 1:40am.  I guess I may be excited about Jill's wedding or maybe it's something else.  But, I'll tell you one thing, the dress is absolutely G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S !   And the shoes?  Oh MY GOD!  They are to die for.  They are so sexy and hot, but, are extremely comfortable.  It feels like I'm wearing custom-made slippers.  In fact, I feel like freaking Cinderella.  (I did see that cute little mouse with the pink apron on running up the stairs to my attic the other night.   hee-hee  I LOVE that movie.  I've always had, ever since I was little , when I watched it with Auntie Gloria.   God, I miss her.  She used to dress me up so pretty.  We used to spend hours and hours playing "dress up" when I used to stay with her and Auntie Betty for the summer.  Funny, I never put 2 and 2 together back then; but then again, I was only 5 when I first started staying with them each summer.  Then after that, each year, I looked forward to spending the summer with them so much that, I never ...  oh well, that's all in the past and they are both gone now, and I do miss them both dearly.).

Anyway, back to the present (I used to LOVE their presents.  It was like we celebrated Christmas every day when I stayed with them).  I'm getting side-tracked again.  Maybe I should go talk to Barbara again.  It's been so long since the last time she saw me and she did help me get through all of that and adjust to who I am today.  But I'll NEVER forget the wonder times I spent with Auntie Gloria and Auntie Betty and the wonderful memories I have because of those 2 beautiful women.  I still try each day to present myself the way they taught me and now I perform their lessons without even realizing that I am.  It's all so "natural" for me now.  Because of them, I am the woman I am today.  Funny, I never like it when they first started calling me "Sugar" and "their little girl".  But now, when people ask me my name, I automatically tell them, "It's Sugar", and I have to stop and think what it actually is. 

OMG, it's 3:10am already.  I must have been really "out there" again all this time.  I really should go back to bed, but I can't.  I know, I go put on one of my pretty nightgowns and do my nails.  That always relaxes me, just like when I used to stay with Auntie Gloria and Auntie Betty.

Anyway, I can't sleep tonight.

Sugar   Kiss
