So tired: Haven't slept right for a week +
Some five year old: told my daughter that ghosts watch her as she sleeps

Nightmares: ever since
The curse: of being a light sleeper while my wife could sleep through a nuclear brass band

The adult version: of "ghosts watch you sleep"
is realizing: Angels
are watching: you in intimate moments.

Your: great grandparents
or others: have seen
your: face

I've been working seven days a week, at two jobs, and still getting right around 80 total, for the last two weeks. We had someone out on vacation, who worked in my department on days when I didn't. So--who's going to work it? Me, I guess. And then they want any excess time I get for those two days to be cut throughout the rest of the week, when I don't have my helper on ANY of those days, instead of just two of them. No overtime allowed.

On the other side of it, I have a second job doing taxes, who want me to work seven days a week, six to 7 hours a day. "Well, you said you were available during this time." Yes, somewhere during that time I'm available, but there's no way for me to tell you I only want to work about 4 hours a day max. And never get any days off? Even one would be nice.

Now, my helper was supposed to get back from vacation this week, but they called me up and asked me to come in, since her brother died. I really don't want to be callous. In fact, though it makes me uncomfortable, I'll speak to her when she comes back to offer condolences, instead of posting it on Facebook, like some other people. I get to see her in person, so it only seems right. I'm not very comfortable expressing my feelings, I'm cold and methodical. When my stepfather died, I just kept right on working. "No, I can't come, no time, too much to do." And that's how I dealt with that. It's worked out for me for as long as I can remember, but I'm thinking, now that I'm older, I probably need to change. I need to be more open and less guarded. I'm 50 now, more than half my life is over, and the way I'm going, it will probably be over before I know it.

It's okay: to say the words
even if: you feel a bit odd doing it

You don't have: to gush
Or Cry, wail, and emote
Just a simple: "My condolences"
or "Sorry to hear that"
is sufficient.

Sometimes: proper society
is built: on these little things

Dislikes: I'm about to get stabbed!
Likes: It'll be the first one for my COVID-19 vaccination!

Mixed emotions: Dang, once it's done my year of working at home will be coming to a close... I've really grown to like my office. I even got a snazzy new desk and everything...

Likes: As a biologist, I'm pretty happy to be getting an mRNA vaccine. Really fantastic change in technology that-- assuming it remains as efficacious as it seems-- might make it easier and faster to vaccinate against other infectious diseases.

I'm actually considering a hug. Not because I'm comfortable with doing it necessarily, but because it might be what the person needs, and would respond to. Simply offering comfort, and nothing more.
