It’s been a fairly good week since I last posted. Had a good weekend hanging out with friends and then a surprise trip the the Ohio Renaissance Festival. It was there last day of operation for the season. Good thing someone checked, or we would have missed it again. We saw some fun shows, choked on a lot of dust and bought a few fun things. I got a skirt I’ve been eying for years and Rich got a drinking horn. We also got a Mud Show DVD of their Dante’s Inferno show, since we never manage to catch it live. All in all a good day, even if I did collapse into deep sleep in the car and the couch as soon as we got home, not to wake again until time for work Monday morning.

The store’s had a bit of rearranging going on in the management. Quietly, of course, so that I was not even able to put my name in for a vacated receiving (non-management) position before they had already filled it. Not that I object to their choice, it’s the one I figured they’d make if they weren’t taking volunteers/applicants. Just had a fleeting moment of – hey, I could be happy doing that. Ah well, two more weeks at the school and maybe I can start my previous plans up again.

As for health/diet. Still need to make appointments. And I’m working my way slowly back to proper eating. No more than two dead animals a week, and no more than on sweet/junk thing a day and pizza dialed back to once a month. Yes, this is a step forward. It’s fall, everyone at the store is baking/bringing in doughnuts, and the office manager at the school kept foisting candy off on me so as not to feet guilty eating it herself. And not that I was Making a lot of meat and pizza, but meals with Rich or out of the house(which is happening a lot running from store to school) are tending to lean more towards those choices. So, I’ll dial it back slowly, and see where I can get to. Also remembering to take my meds/supplements every day.

Not much to report this week. I did get to start on the “library” at the school. Is it a library if there are no bookcases? We’ll see. I organized books into categories and started contact-papering, lending carding and cataloging books this week. There’s a lot to do, I feel like I need a bit of Order of Importance to guide me next week. But well, they don’t really know what to do either.

Went to the doc. We both agreed I should take care of myself more consciously. So there’s that. Feeling pretty good this week, so that’s a start. Fought off the throat ick that everyone around me has. Even if it did take wheatgrass juice to do it. I hear my Dad’s doing well with his stuff, so that’s great. 🙂 Really have to get to the Chiro and give them checks. Our insurance thinks it’s fun to send us the money instead of them.

Money wise, things are looking up. Should be able to start winnowing down the medical bills this month. Get another one gone by end of next month, I think. One of them hasn’t sent us a bill in a while, but when I called them, they said they would be soon. We’ll see. Still gonna take a while, but we’ll be making deeper cuts into it starting this month.

Halloween is fast approaching, still no costume(s). Ah well. 😉

 

Tired But Well October 6, 2011

I’m getting more used to working two jobs again, but it’s still quite tiring, what with everything else still going full steam. But the files are now all in order, though 21 of the boxes don’t have homes yet. And that number is just Not going to work out well.  I have about one box of unfiled papers still needing put in the right folders. And then that project is done. They’ve asked me to stay four more weeks, with the suggestion that the library could use my help ( right now it’s a bunch of boxes of books and some empty fixtures). So we’ll see how that goes.

It’s October, the holiday season is upon us. I am once again pondering the effort and expense of a Halloween costume. I have hardly bothered since becoming an adult. (Yeah, laugh all you want 😉 ) Don’t know that it’s going to change this year either. The holiday displays are going up in the store and next month, holiday hours start piling up. I don’t know what this IS going to mean for my schedule, but it Could be good things. It will mean the insanity of another retail Christmas. The school doesn’t seem interested in hiring me permanently, so no escape valve, yet.

Health is doing alright. It’d be doing better if I was more conscious of taking care of myself. I’m trying to be, but everything is so busy. Got fresh fruits and veggies yesterday. Eating more salad as I rush between jobs. My jobs are very physical, but actual exercise would be good for me. Remembering to take the meds I asked for every day would probably be good for me, too. 😉 All in all, though, I’m doing well.

Just got my copy of The Legacy of Heroes this week. Is pretty. Our BSG-based game with it is going along well. We are actually able to kill some of the suits now. (Toaster being anachronistic in a fantasy world, but suits of armor seems a fitting alternative.) And we’ve gotten our call to the oracle, so that’s up soon. Somehow my monk is still alive. And soon, she might even be effective, thanks to our GM’s gift. Fun stuff.
