A Bit Stressed, But It Worked For Me

Sheez.... After the hard evening with all the running and the fire alarms and whatnot I didn't sleep good at all last night. I could still hear those stupid alarms ringing in my head and my legs cramped up several times in the night, bringing me out of a sound sleep.

Then we had a rather rough morning at our house. Kids screaming. Dogs barking. Too many kids in the house.

Was rather stressed when I got to work and things didn't get any better. LT Sienna told me three of my guys were out and I was getting three utility officers.


Not that I have anything against utilities. They make this place run. If it wasn't for them we'd be severely hosed. But it always works better when you have people who know the house and the offenders and don't have to be told what to do.

I made sure and told them "Let the inmates know that Sarge has had a bad day and isn't in the mood for any silliness."

Don't know for sure if that was the main reason, but we had a pretty calm night. And the silliness was kept to a minimum. The ones I caught doing the two things that get my goat the worst, pants sagging or putting their hands down their pants.... All I had to do was top and look at them and they fixed the problem and apologized. A few of them even called me "Sir."

I don't like being in a bad mood.

But tonight it worked for me.

Monday is going to be National Hug Holiday and King Kamehameha Day as well as National German Chocolate Cake Day.

Mahalo nui loa na ho'olaule'a me la kaua!


  1. I don't know if the leg cramps you mentioned are the same as the charlie horses I get sometimes - that tight pressure in the calf, that incredible pain that feels like someone's ripping your leg off - but if so, then someone told me that the thing to do is get up and walk on it. It sounds counter-intuitive, but it works like a charm. The pain goes away instantly.

    1. (P.S: I mean get up and walk on it when the pain strikes. It's probably too late now ;D )

    2. Bryan- I tried getting up and walking on it before it happened but that didn't work....

      And yeah, it was too late. (grin)

  2. really....I was not aware anyone was taking my picture in the morning. ah well...I'm not really aware of much til after that first cup of coffee.

    King Kamehameha Day? like....the anime show? omg.

    1. Amy- I took that with my web cam in the morning. Pretty, aint I?

      And no, not the anime. Like the real King of Hawaii. That Kamehameha.
