  • 8:30 pm: Pop two Tylenol PMs as I crawl in to bed with a wicked, post 20-miler migraine.


  • 4:30 am: Alarm goes off and I feel remarkably well rested.
  • 5:00 pm: Finally decide that it is time to get out of bed.
  • 6:40 am: Roll in to the office. Eat breakfast and begin analysing oil well production declines. So far...120 wells of 379 wells analysed for one portion of one property.
  • 11:30 am: Head out for a farewell lunch at Sahara for my mentor.
  • 1:30 pm: Back in the office...analysing declines.
  • 6:00 pm: Parking has expired on my car, so time to move it from the lot to free on street parking. 170 of 370 wells analysed.
  • 9:00 pm: Feeling peckish. Time for a mandarin orange.
  • 9:30 pm: It may be time to call it a night.
  • 9:45 pm: Turn off my computer and head back toward my car. 271 of 379 wells analysed.
  • 10:02 pm: The drive-thru A&W at Northland mall has closed...onwards...
  • 10:07 pm: The drive-thru A&W in Crowfoot is open 24 hours. Time to pick up a Mozza burger.
  • 10:15 pm: Settle in front of the TV to chow down on my Mozza burger and finish watching the last 30 minutes of the Project Runway Season 5 finale.
  • 11:00 pm: Crawl in to bed.


  • 4:30 am: Awake and out of bed...
  • 5:45 am: Roll out the door...
  • 6:00 am: Swimming? No... Back at work...

That is brutal. I hate the feeling of working morning till night. Make sure to take some time for yourself or you will go crazy!

Alexandra said...

Holy! Moly! You give a whole new meaning to burning the candle at both ends and it's not related to fun in any way! You will be analysing production declines in your sleep!

I do hope you are recognized and rewarded for your dedication and hard work.
