Unhealthy Week September 22, 2011

It hasn’t been terrible, just not that great. I spent the weekend working and exhausted. Though I did get a nice massage on Friday evening, and to hang out with folk both Friday and Saturday. Monday, my tummy decided that the new veggie dumplings I’d gotten were pure evil and was upset all the way through to Tuesday evening. I had to go home from work Tuesday morning because I was so dehydrated I  nearly passed out. And therefore missed gaming that evening. Wednesday, I managed to slice open the ball of my foot on a nail in the doorway between the bathroom and the closet. No stitches or tetanus shot needed(had one last spring), but the doc did give me antibiotics and tell me to keep a eye out for infection. So, now I’m limping around a bit. The office work has started to catch up with my shoulders, normally tight, they are complaining quite loudly what with everything else, despite friendly massages throughout the week. But that’s just all physical. Easily dealt with.

Life, itself, is pretty good. Working (and more to the point getting paid for) nearly full time hours. Working more provides me with interesting lunch choices – hurray for salad bars and fast lunch counters. The weather is heading into a nice cool fall. True, my projects are on hold, but I did get through a full run of the Game Master Guide for Legacy of Heroes before taking the new job. Coming up, there are birthdays and weddings and Halloween parties. Oh, and the Renaissance Festival. 🙂

Ice Storms February 3, 2011

We had freezing From Monday through Wednesday morning. I chipped my car out of the ice twice, went out both Monday and Tuesday nights, and yet, it was Wednesday night when I slipped and fell on the ice, when it had a nice coating of snow on top of it. I am so talented. I am alright, though, hip is a little tender, but not bad at all, considering I was carrying a large box at the time. The storms did not take our power or even our internet, though some of the trees are worse for the wear. We were lucky this week.

I’m still coughing, one week into ten days of antibiotics, and it’s still clinging to my lungs. Other than that, and cranky shoulders, I’m doing pretty well, health wise. It seems to be the time of surgery for my friends, several wisdom teeth and a shoulder, so good and healing thoughts to all of them.

I finally got back to Elance, applying to five jobs on Monday. No response yet, but most of them had another week of open applications. Spent some time looking at openings in town, but most of the ones I found listed were for managerial positions and required teaching experience, degrees in subjects I don’t have or experience I don’t have. I haven’t given up on the store yet, but some days, I think a better paycheck would be nice. Other days I think the internet is the way to go, if only I could get a brilliant idea that a few thousand people would pay for on a monthly basis. Some day maybe, eh? It’s good to have dreams.

 

Where are we now? January 12, 2010

It’s almost halfway through January already. I was quite productive today. I’ve paid taxes, settled our liquidation of Ameriprise investments, paid bills, balanced budget, checked on drug prices, submitted two stories, and updated all relevant records, filled out insurance paperwork, and this is my second blog post.

I’ll be attending a convention this weekend here in Columbus. Our Ghost of Honor is Amelia Earhart, so among the usual fare, will be paper airplanes and tiki decorations. I plan to relax, eat plenty and enjoy myself.

Infection cleared up, thank you antibiotics. And thank you, Kroger for making them free. Appetite coming back. All is well.
