Thursday Already? October 20, 2016

I’m having a hard time keeping days straight with my schedule. One of them is constant, the other is completely moldable, this is not terribly good for my consistency, nor my sense of time. But somewhat good for my sleeping. 😉 I did spend a bit of time taking the paint splatters off my bedroom floor, and a bit in the office, though I’ve got more to go in here.

Not much to report this week. I spent the weekend relaxing at home in comfy clothes and blankets. There was some WoW and some Netflix, and a good deal of sleep. I didn’t get a second interview from my phone interview a couple weeks back. Another month+ before I can start looking at CML postings outside my branch. But I should be getting my preliminary review soon for Whitehall. Health-wise, feeling a bit better this week than last, though the weather has turned sour.

I finished The Martian, and started on Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher. The difference in pace has me struggling a little, but it’s getting interesting. Next up, I think I’m going to try some Myth books by Asprin.

Halloween Week October 30, 2010

Tomorrow is Halloween and I think I will spend most of it sleeping. It’s been a long week of work and parties, and I’ve got one last one tonight. Spent a lot of the week helping gather materials, set up, and tear down. Sorry about missing Thursday, I was driving to and from Dayton in the morning, getting ready for the evening all afternoon, and then, well, the party that night was epic. Somewhere around 1500 people at the event. Last night was really low key in comparison. I’m hoping that tonight is somewhere in the middle.

On a work front, Rich’s schedule is shifting to allow him Friday and Saturday off, but staying on the same shift. That’ll be cool, for him to have a weekend when everyone else does. I haven’t heard back from either of the jobs I sent proposals to, but I’ll be finding some more to submit to tomorrow. With the arrival of holiday payroll, I have more hours at the store this week. Mike and I are getting things organized for my work at Bookup. I’m looking to take on a list of very specific projects and get more organized to see if we can get even better results.

Health-wise I’m doing fairly well. Staying up for 46 hours actually had me moving with ease and mostly painless. It’s those 8 hours of lying still to sleep that make me the most stiff. Haven’t figured out a solution to that yet. Any suggestions? Had a full zag day on Thursday – nutty pancakes and bacon for lunch, Hound Dogs pizza for dinner and chocolate pancakes, bacon and an English muffin for breakfast. Delicious. But salads are good for me, and back on track I go. I need to do some recipe research and reread the pH Miracle again, at least the wife’s parts on cooking and the pantry.

So much to do, and running low on time.

The State of Things September 30, 2010

Cribbed from an email to my Mom.

I have my good days and bad days, my shoulders are taking on the job of hurting on bad days right now. But even my worst days are far better than my worse days when I was on my meds. I’ve started taking Glucosamine again, to supplement, and I think it’s helping.

Rich traded in his 350Z yesterday for a 2009 Hyundai Elantra. It’s dark red, and very nice, and in excellent shape. The hospital is still jerking us around about combining all the bills we owe them, and the surgeon’s office has trouble remembering to return our calls.

I just got my review at work. I Meet Standards overall, but have to work on the same things I always have to work on: Cafe usefulness, selling Member Cards, and shelving faster. I applied to four other bookstores in the last few days. They buy and sell used book, cds, dvds and even records. We’ll see how that goes.

I’ve been trying to figure out what else I’d be happy doing, that I could make a living at. Tossed around ideas of editing – for companies, for hire, for students. I really enjoy the flexibility of my current schedules, but the weight of being an adult is starting to sink in with all the debt from the hospital. But we’re at a much better place with all that.
