A Hard Night, and a Hot Day

Came home from work today and was exhausted, both physically and mentally. I'm physically exhausted from getting up to go and do life at 5:30 am every morning, and mentally exhausted 'cause I didn't get to sleep until very late last night.

I spoke to Stefanie, my significant other, last night, and she was bawling her eyes out early in the conversation. We've been apart now for a little over two months, as her job has taken her to Calgary until October. Between one thing and another, Stef was suffering from the "being apart blues". Some of you know what this is like, and for the rest of you, well, you can guess. Suffice it to say, we talked for over an hour late last night, and well...I was almost in tears as well when it was all over. I've decided that, if I can, I'm going to try to take a weekend trip to Calgary and spend some time with my SO. She needs it, I need it, and last night just made a few things (which I'm not going to go into here) crystal clear to me.

Anyway, by the time I fall asleep I'm exhausted, and the next thing I know, the alarm goes off for me to get up... I felt more tired than I did when I went to sleep finally, and had a really tough day... A bit of stress and work, and a bit of stress from the night before. I spent a lot of the day thinking about the "crying time" with Stef the night before, and that didn't improve my mood or attitude. Add that to the heat...

Yes, the heat is back on here in Ottawa; when I went to bed last night it was down to 270C. Today it was a balmy (should that be barmy?) 290C today (with a humidex of 33), and it's going to hit the 30-degree mark tomorrow and for the weekend. I probably wouldn't be feeling the heat so much if I didn't have diabetes and all, but it just seems like I can't drink enough water and all. I know, I know, you're all going to say, "What did you expect? It's summer!" Well, fine, be that way...but I am very much a "betweener" - I like the period between winter and summer, and between summer and winter!

Dammit, I need to move to a more temerate climate! :)

Oh, to make supper, bought some lovely halibut today. But you can bet it's going to be pan-fried, not broiled in the oven!

(Note: I'm grumpy because of the heat, and because my blood sugar is probably a bit low.)
