Waiting For… January 26, 2012

It has been a rough week. Some good, some bad. Now I’m waiting. Waiting on one last W2. Waiting on upcoming events. Waiting for calls to be returned. Waiting for mail to arrive.

On the good side of things. Happy Birthday Aunt Terri. Hope you have a good day tomorrow. My nephew is celebrating soon as well. Friends are getting married in three weeks and are throwing a convention to celebrate. So, that’ll be great fun.

Finances and health are balancing out. I’ll be starting Mirena next month, hopefully that will turn out well. One more bill will be fully paid of next month as well. Leaving us down to two, and halfway there monetarily. Looking optimistically towards tax return time, but I haven’t run any numbers yet.

Also waiting on winter. We had some solid ice on Friday last, but where’s the pretty snow? Tornadoes are not winter weather.

The convention went well. The panels were lightly attended, but fun. The parties had good music and silly dancing. The afternoon was full of boardgames, coloring and just plain relaxing. I had a good time hanging out with lots of good friends. And the con, once again, made enough to continue another year. DeCon 10 next year will be Cthulu’s year. Should be great fun.

Other than that. Not much to report. Ohio still hasn’t figured out what season it is for more than two days running. I didn’t come down with Con Crud. Tax papers are trickling in, hopefully that’ll go better than last year. Joints are feeling pretty good this week. Still need to eat better, but that statement actually means something completely different than it might have a few years ago.

New Shoes… Again January 12, 2012

Returned previously bought shoes and got more solid and comfortable ones. And that’s about it this past week. Winter isn’t here yet, not really. Work is still recovering from December. Did have a big gyoza dinner with folk this past Saturday. Fighting off cold bugs with wheat grass juice.

This coming weekend is DeCon, an adult relaxicon, where I’ll be hanging out and helping to throw parties. Possibly playing board games. Mostly, though, relaxing. 🙂

Did go to the doc again, added another pill back. Didn’t want to do that, but I’m not sticking with my diet, and my wrist and elbow have lost a lot of range of motion. Tired of it. Just tired. So we’ll see if this helps or not.

28 Steps and a New Pair of Shoes January 5, 2012

So, the escalators have been down all week at work. There are 28 steps between the first floor and the second floor, I counted on about the tenth trip up. Down isn’t bad at all, but working the information desk all week has put me up those steps so many times. Though our General Manager has a point, our butts will be nice and toned by the time they’re fixed.

Unfortunately, to make matters worse, I also did a rush job of buying new shoes on Monday. And got shoes that squeeze my feet just below the toes. I have to take them back, but until then, I’m working with numb pinkie toes and some serious discomfort in my left foot. Lessons learned… even if I don’t like shoe shopping, I should take more time to do it.

Had a good New Year’s Eve partying with friends and then have a nice relaxed evening on New Year’s Day with some same and some other friends. 2012 is starting out well, with plans not only being made, but set into motion. As with every year, we are determined to make this one better than the last.

Struggling to eat properly. It’s winter and I want warm comfort food, not raw salads. Fresh veggies to cook are also harder to find in good quality. I need new and exciting recipes or something. Hours are going to start dropping at the store soon, so that might give me more time to make proper food choices.
