Drained and trying to recharge

It has been a little more than a week since I returned to work after my trip to the United Kingdom. The jet-lag feelings seem to have left me, but not the pleasant memories that I have of my trip.

I have been having night sessions the past two nights. By the end of today, I felt drained from the work day. This morning, I attended in a three hours long meeting involving myself and my colleagues. That took mental energy even though I spoke no more than ten minutes in total during the meeting.

I shall learn to be kind on myself and give myself time and space to recharge. Recharging is necessary to ensure I maintain a reasonable level of effectiveness the next day.

This shall be my only post for today. If you could please be patient, I hope to post more of my trip to the United Kingdom soon.

I am feeling drained, and I fear I may act nasty if I do not get my treasured sleep soon. Please avoid me at all cost now.

though your post says to avoid you at all costs.. i shall venture to wish you a good rest and that you will be fully recharged tomorrow. (i am making you sound like a battery now, but it is not my intention. i shall also move out of here before i grind on your nerve.)

Hi all, I see a lot of you folks came here at about the same time.

Simple American: Thank you for your regular visit to this blog. Yes, you may link to me. My occupation is a social worker. I play the double bass in a symphony orchestra as a hobby.

Mistipurple: Thanks for your support. I shall find support in your sense of humour. *winks*. Actually, comments written on this blog has no effect on my sleep. I don't check this blog when I am asleep.

Yng Lyn: Thanks for your kind words. You seem to travel often.

Pinkie: Thanks for your concern. I hope I could learn to spread things out a bit, especially at the work place. By the way, if you like and you are free, you are invited to catch our concert at Botanic Gardens, Symphony Stage this Saturday, at 6 p.m. Nature tends to relax one.

Jaybee: I've checked the site, but I felt lost there.
