Burnt to a Crisp
Yesterday started out OK, but then I got to work. We did a simple story nothing too hard, but I was not "feeling it" and I shot like ass. Even when we get back to the station I couldn't get into the story. It didn't look bad it was just, a story. I figured out why, I am in the mist of a burn out. Prior to Monday I had worked 11 days in a row, which is tough, but when you add in tornadoes and running the field of a college football game, that makes me a little worn out. I had only Sunday to rest and I did a little, but I needed two to feel human again. I know I'm going to struggle today and there is no real end in sight. I'm being asked to do another 8 or 10 in a row starting in a week. I don't know how to handle that kind of news. I don't get over time because they will "fix my schedule" to make it overtime free. I need a few days off that don't require me to work more than 5 days in a row afterwards. I wish I had enough sick hours to call off.
