Blegh

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I feel completely and utterly shattered. I passed out on the end of the couch, sort of, when [personal profile] katsuko and I got home and stayed there until I unexpectedly woke up just a couple of minutes ago. And I do have that "sort of" in there because I'm not sure if I actually passed out or if I was just in a state of too shattered to move or think. If the latter is the case, then I suppose I should have also put "wake up" in quotes or something.

I'm tired. Ergo, I'm weird. It's completely not unheard of for me to nitpick my own grammar when I'm tired.

I'm ridiculously glad that tomorrow's Friday. I've been feeling like this most of the week, so I would be very glad to have a couple of days to recuperate and all before I start back to work again next week.

Anyway, I think it's time to take my sorry ass to bed and to hell with trying to type up what I handwrote earlier today and yesterday. Good night, all.

Drowse

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I've pretty much been drowsing since I got home today. It's just everything I can do to keep my eyes open. In fact, pretty much the only reason I'm awake right now is because I needed to type up (a) this journal entry as part of my a post a day thing and (b) what I wrote by hand today.

And you know what? I think I'm just going to take the paper back to work and get more wrtten on that same spot. Try for a goodly amount of words tomorrow that way.

Plan? Plan.

Why

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Why is Tuesday always weirder than Monday? Is it like the people who are too lazy to show out their crazy on Monday? Because that's how it feels some weeks. I've gotten to where I actually legitimately dread Tuesdays at work, because there will be shenanigans of some sort.

I did have a small splurge shopping today and bought a new pair of pajama pants. This is one of the two times of year I buy pajama pants: I always need new Halloween pajama pants, and then after Thanksgiving, I try to go buy a new pair of flannel pants. Because I am not going to be come, but I'm also not going to run the heater too much in the wintertime.

And I'm trying to actually go to bed at a decent hour tonight, maybe even before midnight, so I'm closing this one up early. Later, all.

Bleh, Monday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I made it through the work day. I didn't have to maim or kill anyone... but it came close. So many little nitpicky rules that they're suddenly deciding they want to enforce... and then cop attitudes, saying shit like "Well, these rules have always been there" and "I don't know about your old district manager, but I've always required these be done" and so forth. It's some terribly frustrating shit.

Also incredibly frustrating: I got a bill back from my dental insurance, saying they don't pay for temporary bridges, so hock up the $1400 I now owe them. Like, wtf? WTF? Why do I pay all this money to you guys then?

And, yeah, that's it. I'm still running only because of rage and spite, and I have reached the limits of how far they will carry me. Good night, all.

How

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
How is it Sunday night already?! I'm not ready for the work week to be starting again! I'm not ready for the weekend to be over. I'm not ready to go back to testers and anxiety and coworkers and everything. I want at least four more days to the weakend ad ready for the whole thing to be over and done with..

And that's it. I give. I've been trying for hours now to get this damn journal entry finished, and it's just not happening. (Much the same as all my writing today this weekend.) So instead I'm going to throw myself at my bed and see if I can't start feeling better for in the morning.

Good night, all.

Caturday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Where the hell has today gone? I swear I was just getting up for the day a few minutes ago, and now it's already over. I think the only reason I'm still awake in the first place is because I've had a soda for the first time in a couple of weeks today, and it's got me all flustered like. It definitely has me more awake than I'm happy with for this time of day.

But I'm going to see if I can't remake the acquaintance of my bed. Good night, all.

Friday!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I need a dance for surviving the work week and making it to Friday evening. Yes, the weekend will, as always, be too short, but it's finally here. I can sleep in tomorrow. Maybe have a chance to get these dark circles under my eyes to some manageable levels. Or at least socially acceptable levels.

Other than that, I don't really have anything to say. I got caught up reading a new fic from [archiveofourown.org profile] Hazel_Athena, and now it's so stupid late in the evening that it's actually morning. Whoops.

I guess that means that I should try to pack it up and try out my bed for a few hours. Seeing as how I've reached the point in the night where my hands are spasming... possibly because I keep doing these little 2 second exhaustion drop-offs.

Anyway, good night, all.

Almost...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Two days into this newest medication for my joint pain, and all I can say for it so far is that it's not the hugest pill I've ever had to take. It does, however, get stuck in my throat more than just about any other pill I've ever taken. It requires so much liquid to get down. I do not like it so far, obviously, but if it decides it's going to help some of the pain, I'll put up with it. (I'll also gladly put up with the supposed "decreased appetite" side effect listed online for it. Yes, please.)

Tomorrow is payday, but mostly I'm just ready for the weekend again.

And yeah, that's all I've got (again). I'm gonna go crawl into my bed now.

Tired

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm so seriously incredibly tired today. Like every time I sit still for a moment or two, then all i want to do is sleep... and a lot of them, I almost have been asleep. But I don't feel rested, even on those times where I do fall asleep, so I will admit to beign a bit leery that it will be in any way restful to sleep in my bed tonight. b b

And Boo is now going to join me in typing. That's probably a good sign that it's time for me to go the hell to bed for the night, whether or not I have actually managed to accomplish anything. Later, all.

Tuesday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I made it through another day. I'm hot, I'm tired, and I feel like I'm sort of all over the place. But I wrote like hell today.

I might be almost to the point of having the last bit of After Midnight done. That's... a nice feeling, I guess. It makes me sort of happy. It does mean that I wrote nearly 1400 words on that alone today, because one character suddenly wanted to chat.

I tried to write on Ain't Our Time, but the one asshole OC who I can always count on to asshole refuses to asshole, and given that this particular section is told from Goodnight's point of view, I'm pretty sure that letting him suddenly not run long-winded would count as out of character.

I wrote more on Shelter, the femme Faraday in canon-era part... like 1100 words on it.

The Dark Powers universe is kicking my ass. I think that's mostly because I can't decide if I'm going too OOC with some of this stuff. I might have taken the whole "break the cutie" way too much to heart, it feels like.

And finally, the Shelter verse done original style... Well, one character is has decided to completely lock up, which is pretty accurate for the shit going on, and I can work with it... once I get the damn After Midnight dealt with.

Monday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I survived the Monday at work. It's a lot easier to get along with Glynda when there's a sort of rallying point of something we're both annoyed about, so we don't get ticked at each other. Because they've found yet more things to nitpick about in Prometric, and I think we're all just fucking done with this. Actually, I think we're all just fucking done with this, because LaTrease, Richard, and Anastasia are no better. It's some bullshit.

Anyway, I think I'm gonna go throw myself at my bed and accept a low word count for today. Later, all.

Awww

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm actually pretty seriously sad that my weekend is already over. I mean, where did it go? Today was spent being sort of lazy, while a lot of yesterday was spent at the dentist. Once again, I feel like the weekend is gone without it even slowing down to say hello... and yet at the same time, I feel like I didn't get nearly enough nap time in. Because I need my nap time, okay? I'm old and cranky and sore and hurting, and all that adds up to necessary nap time, especially when brain won't let me go to bed at a decent hour.

And yeah, that's it: just a complaint that the weekend is already over.

Dentist

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, I guess the dentist thing went pretty good. I guess I misunderstood because I thought I was getting a cleaning and then fitted for my temporary partials today... but all I was getting was fitted. It was uncomfortable, and I didn't enjoy it, and I think I can still taste the stuff that they use to make the impressions. Any way you cut it, it wasn't a great experience.

That said, I indulged in my favorite grocery store pizza for lunch and I used my Olive Garden gift card for dinner, so the day wasn't a complete waste. It was nice getting to have my favorite frozen pizza today, but damn, now I want it again already... in addition to the Indian I've been craving for a week. Paneer Mahkani sounds freaking amazing right now, especially with some cheese naan. I have needs, folks. Needs.

And I think that's about it. My concentration is absolutely shot today. I'm not sure I could string together any else resembling coherency.

Friday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I feel like I should be saying that my week of service has ended. It honestly feels a little like community service sometimes, going into work... and not the kind you do for fun either.

Tomorrow is my next dentist appointment. I'm no looking forward to it, not with the over $700 copay that I have to do.

And that's it. I'm too wiped out to type coherently, and it's taken me nearly four hours to make this tiny bit of a post. I'm gonna shut it down and try to get a little bit of sleep ahead of the dentist thing tomorrow. Good night, all.

Not too bad

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I guess today went pretty okay. I didn't get as much writing done as I wanted to, but I did manage some on the train ride home. I feel like I got run a little nuts with all the STEPs today, especially when there always seems to be that one that wants to press matters, usually their breaks. We definitely had one of those today. They're allowed 10 breaks, and when I left, she was already on 9 with an hour and a half of test left to go. If it had been the tester who is 8 1/2 months pregnant, I could have almost understood, but nope. She even managed tog et in two breaks during my 45 minute lunch, if that says anything.

Other than that, it was a whole lot of ringing phones, loud coworkers, and coworkers complaining about everything in the department: one complaining about management, while the other complains about coworker #1. And oh yeah, the part-timer just doesn't want to be there for more than a few hours every so often, not several days in a row, and is supposed to be retired, and can only work a few days every now and then, and is sick to death of all the testers we get.

And I'm honestly about a step away from telling some of these testers who say I'm so great to put that on their surveys at the end, because no one believes them otherwise.

And that's it. That's all I've got. One more day of early mornings, then next week, it's all back to normal when Glynda and LaTrease will both be back from vacation. (So much for that whole "we're so short-staffed that only one person can be out at a time" thing, huh? When this is the third or fourth time this year that they've both been out at once.)

Anyway... Later, everyone.

Today

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I wish I could say something one way or another about today. It just sort of... was. It wasn't good. It wasn't bad. It didn't suck. It wasn't awesome. It just was.

That said, I got no writing done at work... but a shit ton on the train to and from work. This is a good thing. I just wish some of it was on stories people gave a damn about. You know, instead of the one that I might well be the only one reading.

Maybe I should just stick to the original one instead. Makes more sense, huh?

Anyway, yeah, sadly, that's about all I've got. I'm gonna try, but I don't think that I'm going to make it all the way to 1000 words today. No promises, but I'm going to try. Later, all.

Long day

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Long day was long today. I missed the first train, the one that left the station as I was pulling up (I literally heard it leaving as I got out of my car), and I ended up being about 7 minutes late because of the second train. But you know what? I can deal. I can roll with that. It just makes getting my brain in gear a little harder, that's all.

I got some writing done on the train, which was good, because no writing occur while I was at work. I didn't get quite as much done as I wanted to, but I did get a good few hundred words done, so... yay, me?

And yeah, that's about all I've got for myself for today. Pretty sad, huh? Either way, I'm gonna see about crashing. Later, all.

Early

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Gods, I am not looking forward to tomorrow. I have to be at work by 7:00, so I have to be on the train by 6:15 at the latest. Which means I have to be up stupid early, and I am not looking forward to it. Especially when I have do it all week. Because that's the downside of Glynda being gone all week: someone has to open, and I'm currently the one best trained for it. For a given value thereof, because I'm still trying to find out where things are kept and paperwork is store and what the hell is her organization system anyway and why do we need paper copies of everything that we already have electronic copies of. But whatever.

So much for my hopes of doing as little resting as possible while I had this mini-vacation. I'm pretty sure I passed out for a few hours with Boo on top of me today while [personal profile] katsuko was at work. Luci has spent most of the day alternating between hovering at the end of the couch and hovering on top of the TV stand. So that's been interesting.

I only managed to get a little bit of writing done today, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up on it yet. I've got the ideas: I just need the gumption to get the words going again. Or something. Things. Stuff. Words. I can't seem to make them happen even in journal entries. Fantastic.

Anyway, yeah, I'm gonna go recline here on the couch for a little bit longer, then I'm gonna go to bed, because I have to be up stupid early. Later, all.

Zoned

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm so tired, just enough exhaustion that I can't even see straight anymore. I've spent most of the day drifting in and out of a light sleep. It's pretty much exactly what I didn't want for my holiday weekend: to spend the whole thing sleeping, no matter how much my body may or may not think I need it.

That said, it was a nice relaxing day at home with [personal profile] katsuko and the kitty girlies and a lot of YouTube and a hair dying party. So, all in all, it was really nice.

I still have one more day of vacation left, but then I'll be opening the rest of the week: Tuesday with LaTrease and then Wednesday through Friday with Anastasia. [personal profile] katsuko is back to work tomorrow.

Anyway, yeah, that's it. Quiet day. One more of those then back to work. No Glynda for a week. Fucking yay. I'm going to try sleeping in my bed.

Four hours

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, that's four hours of my life I'm never getting back.

The MRIs today were... interesting. My first appointment was supposed to be at 1:15. I arrived at 12:45, just to be on the safe side, since that hospital is laid out a bit weirdly. That part was a wise idea, because one of the two garages was closed, and the shuttle between buildings wasn't running. Once we got in the right building, it still took a few minutes to find the place to go to register then go down to the MRI waiting room. It ended up being right about 1:10 when I got there.

But it ended up being nearly 3:00 before I was taken back to MRI areas. But at least once I was back, it was quick: I got to done by around 4:30 or so. I guess I just wasn't planning on the bulk of my day being taken up with this. Unlike yesterday, I feel very unaccomplished. I don't think I got hardly anything done, and sadly my long weekend is now almost halfway over. This is very sad-making.

And to make matters worse, I've barely gotten any writing done today. I had all the plans of writing on the original stuff or the dark powers 'verse or even more of Shelter... but no, of course not. I did help [personal profile] katsuko apply for some jobs, so that's a good thing, I guess. I guess that counts if nothing else. I did try to get her interested in writing something, even if it was only the opposite POV on some of these stories as what I have (because sometimes that segues into her getting writing done in that same verse), but nothing.

I guess, all in all, I feel pretty useless about today. C'est la vie?
