The Aspect Of My Life

Fun House

I am slowly resurfacing, not completely back yet.  And I must say, I have enjoyed this sleepwalking journey of the last week.

I worked my four hour shift on Thursday without too much trouble other than some comments that I looked very pale and a brief moment when I felt like I might faint. On Friday, Gloria came by around 10:45 AM with chicken salad for my lunch and I was still in bed, but with every intention of getting up by 11:00 to start slowly getting ready for my 1:30-9:30 shift.  After Gloria left I promptly fell back to sleep and did not wake up until there was a knock on my door around 2:00 PM.  Seems I was sleeping through my shift and the office was a bit concerned about me since they knew I was not feeling well.  They sent two maintenance men to check on me and as I opened the door and peered out at them I wondered, "what planet are they from and what language are they speaking?".  For awhile all I could do was stare at them as I had no idea what they were saying.  I finally figured out what they were saying, mumbled back something to them which must have made sense as they soon left and radioed to the office that I was ok and would show up for work at some point.

I did make it to work an hour later, worked until 9:30 PM and actually had a wonderful day.  Seems I can sleepwalk and work at the same time!  This is wonderful news and makes everything so much more amusing.  I am finally starting to surrender to this Fun House and wish I had the time and energy to write a book about all the characters who populate my neighborhood and pass in and out of the office.  The stories are numerous, crazy, unbelievable; comedies, dramas, mysteries.

Welcome to the Fun House.

  1. Susan, this is my first "comment" attempt; we'll see whether it "sticks". I have minnieminerva bookmarked, and it is good to check in with your adventure each morning. Wow!! You are surely gathering tales to tell! Hope your recovery is going well; things are astir, that's for sure! vic
