Snow day

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, yeah, for the second time already in 2018, we're having a snow day. They didn't announce it until freaking 3:30 this morning. Like, I went to bed at 1:30, and I got up with [personal profile] katsuko's alarm, and there's the text from GSU and another from LaTrease saying no work today.

At least they didn't dick around with tomorrow. They sent a note at 4:15 this afternoon saying that GSU will be closed on Thursday too. So there's a that. I don't have to keep doing the "La Cucaracha" song in regards to the university president or calling him a fat fuck. I have two days in a row off. Thanks to Monday's holiday, I'll only have to work at most two days this week, provided the snow melts like it's supposed to tomorrow. I could certainly live with it not and getting Friday off too, though. One day of work this week sounds quite fine to me. I mean, two is acceptable, if I do go back on Friday, but only working Tuesday? That sounds fucking amazing.

Anyway, it's still snowy and gross and shit, and I'm not looking forward to the idea of [personal profile] katsuko trying to drive in it tomorrow, because IKEA is going to be open. WTF.

And now I guess it's time to go throw myself at my bed. Good night, all.

A little harsh

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I am having a debate with [personal profile] katsuko. She says it's a little harsh that I said that, if the university president doesn't give me tomorrow off for the snow, then I'm going to find him and dump the contents of Luci's litter box on him. I say it's perfectly reasonable. I also said he's a fat fuck and he needs to make up his damn mind. All the county schools in the area are closed, including Fulton County -- and it's usually one of the last to close before GSU. I've been refreshing and refreshing the window, hoping for a sign saying the university will be closed, for at least an hour or more, but nothing yet.

You know, I thought I had left a business (the restaurant industry) that didn't care about the lives and safety of its employees. But nope, it's starting to look like I'm in the same situation either way. And yes, I am a big grumpy. I don't want to have to go to work. This city -- hell, this whole area -- has no idea what to do in the snow and ice, and frankly, I don't want to be in an accident if I have to go in for a pointless day of work.

Also, for the record, I am indeed having my first period since the surgery. I'm cramping worse today than I was before the surgery itself. I might even be a little crankier, but that could just be extenuating circumstances. If I do somehow happen to be at home tomorrow, I'm calling the gyno to see if that's something to be expected: worse cramps.

Well, it looks like it's going to be Georgia State and Georgia Tech open tomorrow, which is extremely stupid. But likewise, I guess I had best be getting to bed, so that I can go to work tomorrow. I will be a bit pissed, mind you, if I get up in the morning and get on the road and they decide to cancel things.

Anyway, yeah, bed. Later, all.

A bit

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I don't know. I don't really have anything to say for myself for today.

I got [personal profile] katsuko off to work all right. Boo was kind enough to let me grab another hour or so of sleep before she demanded her breakfast. I came out to the living room and started typing up all the loose leaf paper I had laying around, trying to get some decent amount of words for the day. It's taken a little bit, because I ended up passing out part of the way through.

[personal profile] katsuko got home from work, and the icky feeling she had leaving was dialed up to 11, so I made her go to bed under the electric blanket and get some rest. We cooked lunches for some of the week -- dependent on what GSU decides to do with the possibility of snow again tomorrow and/or Wednesday. (Gods, how I'm hoping for another snow day. I could use another snow day.) Basically, we made the broccoli mini quiches for breakfasts. We made the broccoli casserole for two lunches each. And we made some more fat bombs. I'm trying out a slightly revised version of the broccoli casserole, one that halves the carbohydrates and doubles the fat in it.

And yeah, I've still got a little bit more to type up for today, so I guess I'm going to go try to finish up on that. Later, all.

Should I

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm trying to decide if I should feel accomplished. [personal profile] katsuko and I did our grocery run, and I managed to get a lot of the list. We had a grand total of $30 left to our names, and we only spent $25. We even stuck fairly close to the list from last entry.

$25 spent, and we managed to get: a 2 pound bag of frozen broccoli, 2 bags of frozen cauliflower, 2 bottles of water drops, 3 blocks of tofu, a tub of whipped cream cheese, a bag of string cheese, and 2 12-packs of knock-off Diet Dr Pepper. I thought that that was pretty damn good. I mean, it's not fantastic, but it was pretty decent. I managed to turn up coupons for one block of tofu and for both packs of the soda, plus our discount card, so we got a little over $5 knocked off.

What we didn't get, though, was cat litter. That was a definitely need it kind of thing, and there just wasn't enough. What we may do is go back on, say, Wednesday, and let me basically overdraft my other checking account to buy cat litter and fakin' bacon bits. It's not a perfect solution, but it might have to do. We definitely need the cat litter, because... because...

Well, because I'm not sure if we actually have cats. It's entirely possible that we have shit demons wearing cat bodies. Never before have two such adorable cats proven quite so well that they are fully capable -- nay, capable and willing -- to deliver The Stench of a level and quality that it might as well be considered chemical warfare. Holy shit. Not literally. And Boo's litter box lives in my bedroom, because she won't leave it for more than a minute or two at the time. I know what I'm talking about when I mention The Stench.

Okay, they might not be shit demons. It is possible that their bowels just were tipped into the Bog of Eternal Stench and that they're just enlightening us on the hazards of such a foolish endeavor.

So, yeah, I'm kinda tired and a little loopy. I think it's time for me to go throw myself under my electric blanket and try for sleep. Good night, all.

Sleeping Saturday

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, so yeah, I put my info into Fitbit to check things out. All totaled, I've slept 14 hours between midnight and now that I'm going bed. It kind of feels like a waste of a shared day off. However, I'm looking at it this way: if I slept for 14 hours and if [personal profile] katsuko slept for 13 hours, then obviously our bodies needed the sleep, right?

That's what I'm going with.

The problem is that I'm still tired. I've been tired all day, even drifting off on the couch while [personal profile] katsuko was in the couch.

What's worse is that I'm still tired. I'm still sleepy. I still want to just roll around on my couch or, better yet, under my electric blanket and not move until the cats demand food. Or, let's be realistic: until Boo demands food. She's the more authoritative one on the subject. She will straight up cut a bitch if her belly is ignored.

All that said, though, I'm going to go throw myself at my bed now. I'm ready to be under the electric blanket and basking in its warmness. After all, [personal profile] katsuko has to be at work early in the morning. I'll get up with her and stay up until she texts that she's arrived at work okay, and then I'll be back to bed for an hour or two. When she gets home, we might nap or we might head on to do the grocery shopping that we meant to do today. (Things we need: water drops, broccoli, 1 tin of full fat coconut milk, at least 3 packs of tofu, fakin' bacon bits, cauliflower, cream cheese, cheese sticks, fish for [personal profile] katsuko maybe, paneer maybe, maybe a more fine masher, and definitely cat litter.) Maybe typing it up will help me remember it. If nothing else, I can refer back to it.

And now, sleep. Good night, all.

From the future

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Yeah, guess who left work sick yesterday, got home, went to nap... and didn't wake up until nearly three in the morning?

The nausea I've been kicking around since around Wednesday rallied big time and decided it was going to kick my ass a bit. I was sick most of Thursday night and certainly didn't sleep well. I did text LaTrease saying if I didn't feel better by Friday morning, I would like to use some of my sick time to try to recuperate. LaTrease didn't answer the text I sent her last night or this morning saying that I still felt ill but would come in for as long as I could; when I got to work, I would find out that she did the exact same thing on Thursday that I did today: laid down for a nap and slept the rest of the day.

I got to work, and Glynda was already pulling the "poor me, I've got a migraine" routine. I mean, it's been two weeks: she's about due for another sick day. That's about how often she "gets a migraine" and has to leave work. I'm definitely not the only one who has noticed it, since Richard keeps bringing it up. (But who knows with Richard? He's fast to point out flaws, quick to backtrack, and quicker still to fault others.)

Anyway, I got the request in first, so I got to go home at 1:00. I managed to get home at 2:00-something. I put the first little bit of food on my stomach around 3:30 or 4:00... and then yeah, I passed out on the couch at 5:00, where I apparently slept happily until 3:00 in the morning. Whoops.

All I can figure is that I apparently really needed the sleep, to have slept nearly 10 hours straight on the couch.

And I think I'm going back to my room and sleeping in my actual bed with my actual electric blanket, because the weather just turned cold again. It might not be pleasant back there, though, because Boo is mad that [personal profile] katsuko took the "fancy" white blanket back up the hall.

Either way, I suspect I don't care too much, because I want more sleep. Good night, all.

Sooner or later

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I will finish this damn Year in Review post sooner or later. Right now, it's looking like later. It also feels like trying to tread water in wet cement. I'm so tired, I'm so nauseated constantly, I'm still rocking the dull headache, and I've had some really nasty dizzy spells. Again, not sure what the issue actually is, but I'm not loving it.

Dude, Glynda is about to run me fucking crazy. Anastasia looks like she's going to beat her if she touches her one more time, and I might have to be a character witness for the Russian, because honestly, I'm on her side here. LaTrease told Glynda about Anastasia being pregnant, and now that's all the woman can talk about. "*sigh* I can't wait to meet my nephew." "How's my nephew doing?" "*pats Anastasia's stomach* Are you being good for Mommy?"

A caveat here, Anastasia is in no way related to Glynda, and that does seem to be what's fueling her anger at the woman.

Me, I'm angry because, yet again, the same standards and practices aren't being applied to Glynda as they are to everybody else. I got an email this morning from LaTrease to get off the computer while there was a tester in the waiting, which is fair, fine. I'm good with that. What I'm not good with is Glynda sitting on the computer, not moving a finger to help, while I'm checking in testers and not doing a damn thing to help. If one is not acceptable, it follows that the other shouldn't be either. And yet. It's blatant favoritism, because the two of them are friends outside of work.

Seriously, I've been at this job less than a year. I'm miserable a lot of the time I'm there... and it's rarely the testers' fault. That's, honestly, not what I expected to be one of the easier parts of the job. I'm good with them. I spend a lot of time soothing ruffled feathers after Glynda, but I'm good with them, so it's okay.

So, yeah, my mind is on everything but finishing the Year in Review post. It will still happen, but it's slow-going. I will finish it, but it's definitely a case of "sooner or later".

And I think I'm through ranting for now. I'm going to throw myself back at my bed and see if I feel a bit better in the morning. If I don't, I might see about calling in or just working a part day. So again, later, all.

Zzzzz

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, I'm starting to feel like crap, so I've been trying to catch up on sleep to see if I might feel better with some of that happening. Poor Anastasia at work has been sick as a dog for the last month or so and can't take any medicine to get better, and I'm starting to suspect that I'm getting whatever she has had. Or I'm just sick of being at work. That's also a possibility.

I've been having the full body shudders, vertigo, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, dull headache, runny nose, and so forth, on top of my usual joint pain and so forth. Like I said, part of me wonders if I've got whatever it is that Anastasia has had for forever, but I'm a little bit more certain that I have the "carb flu", from cutting so much of the carbs out of my diet. (Plus cutting out a shit ton of soda and sweets... though admittedly, not all my soda. Not falling asleep is one of those needs. Also dulling a throbbing headache down to a minimal one is also a need.)

I'm still kicking around the dizziness and fatigue and all. I keep thinking about how delicious a big plate of pasta would be, but I have to be strong and resist the urge. So far, I've made the unsurprising realization that I have to snack a lot throughout the day to make up for the lack of junk food and lack of carbs. I've discovered that nuts are expensive, but they make a pretty decent snack. I've also discovered, oddly, that CVS has the best selection of nuts.

And that's about all I've got. I'm going to go throw myself back at my bed now, this time to sleep instead of just nap like I did earlier. Good night, all.

OMG

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I've been working on the Year in Review post. I'm only up through April... and I'm not done with that month yet. The problem is that I quit posting the stories to [community profile] eternal_sailorm because no one was visiting the site. It saved me some extra steps, yes, but it also means that I'm having to go story to story now and get the correct dates for each chapter and then get them into order. I keep wondering if it would just be easier to post all the stories to [community profile] eternal_sailorm then link them, instead of hunting through AO3, but I'm not sure.

Work was... ehh, work today. I had been in a pretty decent mood up until I got there, but damn... Those fucking GACE students pluck my damn nerves. Glynda plucks the few remaining nerves I have after that. She might not be so bad if I didn't have to spend so many hours with her. Smaller doses might be more tolerable. I don't know. As it is, I'm stuck with her sitting right next to me from 8:30 in the morning until I go to lunch around 1:00 or 1:30. I get back between 1:45 and 2:15, and then she goes to lunch from 2:45 to 3:30, before finally leaving at 4:00. Someone who is better at maths, figure that one out for me.

Anyway, I'm going to keep working on the Year in Review post for a bit longer and then crash hard on my bed. Good night, all.

Holy cow

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, I started on the Year in Review post. It's going to be longer than I thought it would. I didn't realize just how much [personal profile] katsuko and I wrote last year... and that's just the stuff that we posted. There are at least 200,000 words that never went online, because the two of us remain the only GoodDay shippers out there.

Nonetheless, GoodDay stuff ended up being the bulk of what we wrote throughout the year. It's just... almost none of it is online. Maybe I'll see about getting all these stories online eventually.

So I'm going to keep working on getting all these stories linked so that I can finish up the Year in Review. But I'm going to do that tomorrow.

It's time for bed now, so I'm going to go throw myself under my electric blanket. Good night, all.

Soon

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
That year in review thing? It will be happening. I'm not sure when it'll be happening, but it will be happening.

I spent a lot of today sleeping off the Flexiril I took last night. I feel a lot better after having taken it the last couple of nights, enough so that I don't think I'll need to take one tonight. That's a good thing.

On the upside, work is cancelled tomorrow. Atlanta is expecting a mix of snow and freezing rain tomorrow, and the city is pretty much shutting down. All the schools are closed, and GSU finally announced about 10 this evening that they weren't going to open either. This is a lovely thing. I just wish IKEA wouldn't open tomorrow either. There's no helping Mirko tomorrow, but that'll be after the worst of the weather has passed.

And now I'm going to go throw myself at my bed. I'm hoping that tomorrow will be a more productive day than the rest of the weekend has been, because the best I can say for myself today is that I cook meals for a couple of days next week/this week. That's good, right?

Anyway, good night, all.

I lied

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, I guess I lied. I'm not doing my Year in Review post today after all. I'm not sure what I got distracted with today, but my attention span has been zapped down to a whole lot of nothing. I know part of it is that I took a Flexiril last night, to combat my fun little tumble in the ice earlier that day, but that's only part of it. A lot of the rest of it is just that Saturdays are sleep day. The Flexiril just made it that much more effective.

And I'm about to take another one. I'm still so freaking sore, and even with my new electric blanket (thanks again, Mum), I can't quite get all the aches out. I am going to have to give the Epsom salts a try tomorrow and see if they help more than just the heat has been.

But now I'm going to go throw myself under the blankets and try to get some sleep. Later, all.

Waiting

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I hate waiting for something, knowing it should arrive soon -- yet also thinking that it should have already shown up -- and yet having to still wait patiently for it. I have a $25 Amazon gift card that I spent over a year diligently saving up points for. I ordered it on Christmas Eve, so I guess this coming Monday will make two weeks since I requested it. I'm so stupid close to another Amazon gift card, though this one through MyBonusPoints. And I have enough for a $5 card through ShopKick, but on both of them, I'm saving up for $25 minimum.

Today has just been a mountain of suck. We were about 5 minutes late getting to the train station today. The train we got on broke down. They sent us over to the northbound platform to get on the next southbound train... which ended up coming on the southbound side anyway, so we had to rush back over to the southbound side to get on the next train. With all that, we had just long enough to get drinks and for me to start to work. I got to find out that, in 24° weather, it takes five blocks for a Diet Coke to freeze, so that's something.

And then I managed to slip in the only bit of ice along the entire walk, half a block from work. I don't know exactly how I managed it, but I went arse over teakettle, landing on my left shin and ass. I tried to catch myself with my right hand, and now the wrist is sore as hell. I also managed to get a bit of road rash along my right hand. Not to mention how it feels like every muscle in my body is hurting now. But I bought some Epsom salts at Walmart today, and I'm going to have a nice long soak tomorrow.

And that's really all I've got to say for today. Tomorrow I'm going to try to get my writing year in review done, even if it is a bit late.

So... good night, all.

Energy

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I swear, I will get the energy up to do some damn writing this year, but that time really hasn't come yet. I sat and stared at a blank page for hours today, trying to will words to come, but alas, nothing happened. I couldn't get anything to happen. So I'm going to hope for better results tomorrow.

As it is, though, I think I'm going to go ahead and take my last bit of medication for the evening and going on to bed. I kind of feel like a slice of raw hell right now, and as dearly as I would like to, I probably shouldn't try to call out sick tomorrow. (Be sent home early sick? That might be a different story.)

And that's about all I've managed to come up with for myself today: tired, sick, and writer's block. Sounds like a winning combination, huh? All the more reason to hie myself on off to bed and put this whole damn day behind me.

Plan? Plan.

On that note, good night, all.

Quickly

Okay, here's the thing: I'm tired and I'm cold and I'm ready to go throw myself under my electric blanket and try to be warm until it's time to go to work again.

I really don't feel like trying to do my usual year in review post today. Maybe I'll do it tomorrow. Maybe I'll save it for Friday night. I just don't know yet. I'm tired, and almost all my joints hurt, and I'm ready to sleep.

And you know what? That's what I'm going to go do right now. So, good night, all.

Ehh

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Okay, so far the whole "writing a thousand words a day" isn't going so great. Maybe I should have set a word goal for the year, instead of a daily goal. Oh well. Live and learn and all that.

The main reason that the writing isn't going so great is because the cooking is going really well. I think we're pretty much done for this week's food, barring if we decide to make low-carb pad thai. That might be our tomorrow food, though. Dinner maybe? It would be relatively easy, so it might be a good way to go. Yeah, I'll think about it.

So far, this whole HFLC (or not quite keto) diet is going... all right. I'm still trying to get good at making high fat foods, when I'm so used to trying to avoid fat. So far, sometimes it feels like I'm making things wrong. I'm still doing too high on carbs for what we need, but we'll see how tomorrow's meals go for us, see if I end up doing a little better there.

Also, dudes, I found a recipe for HFLC gnocchi, and I think I'm going to make it this weekend. It sounds so damn amazing! It's literally just two or three ingredients: mozzarella cheese, egg yolks, and maybe some garlic powder. That's it. Oh yeah, Mama's got needs here.

And damn it, back to work tomorrow. I guess that means I need to go throw myself in my bed. Good night, all.

Resolutions

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So it's that time of year again, where I try listing my resolutions for the new year and see how well I did at keeping my ones for last year.

So, let's see... for 2018, I think I'm going to try to:
(1) Write a journal post every day. That has been a thing I've been doing for several years now, and I've done pretty good at it so far.
(2) Write 1,000 words per day. I'm not counting today, because I was stupid busy with trying to get food prepped.
(3) Eat more mindfully and try to lose weight. The new antidepressant I'm on apparently has a side effect of making me gain weight. So, I'm starting at 207 and my ultimate goal remains 135, so I still have a very long way to go to reach my ultimate goal.
(4) Go back to school. Thanks to working at Georgia State, I have access to going to any University System of Georgia school for free, and I might as well take advantage of it. Maybe Library Science? Why not.
(5) Pay off debts. There are plenty. Might as well start working on them so my credit can start moving to a better place.

That's a good place to start. It's all about getting my life in order this year, and these five things are a good place to start.

As for how I did last year... the first three this year are the same ones I have from last year. I did write a journal entry every single day, so go, me. I may not have written 1,000 words a day, but I did write 519,127 words for the entirety of 2017, so I think I still surpassed my goal. And I started 2017 at 170 pounds and ended it at 207, so, ehhh, not so great on that last one. Money got tight, and cheap food is worse for you.

To try to remedy this, I've spent most of today batch cooking meals for [personal profile] katsuko and I to take to work. We're going to try eating at home as much as possible too, so maybe that will help also. I might try going to the gym a bit as well. I mean, we're paying for the memberships. Might as well use them. Or maybe I should just cancel them and move us back to Planet Fitness, with the closer locations and slightly better hours and more machines. YouFit just cost a little less at the time.

I don't know. I'll stew on that one a little while.

Anyway, I'm now down to 2% battery on my phone, [personal profile] katsuko is asleep on the couch next to me, Luci is prowling the house, and I have a follow-up appointment to the rheumatologist tomorrow at 9:00 in the morning. I think it's about time I go throw myself at my bed. Good night, all. Happy 2018.

End of the year

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Wow, 2017 is at an end. It's been a wild ride, hasn't it? Not a particularly good one, overall, but it's been a ride nonetheless.

I'm actually typing this from the future, because I got distracted by watching videos and didn't come back to this for a while. I'm giving some pretty strong thought to continuing to stay awake until the fireworks die down some. Lord and Lady know that Boo won't be coming out from under my bed until the noise stops. Poor kitty. And Luci is on high alert. Poor things.

I think I'm going to go try to comfort my kitties and get through the night myself. Tomorrow is going to be a long day of cooking.

Good night, all.

More prep

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Still grabbing things to officially start dieting on the 1st. This time, it was heavy cream and cream cheese, as well as vital wheat gluten, because apparently, we're going to try making "wheat meat", so that I have additional protein options. I got Mum's recipe for her HFLC broccoli soup that [personal profile] katsuko and I both love so much.

When I was going through my cookbooks, I found all kinds of receipts and such from Tallahassee that I was using for bookmarks previously. Now I miss it all over again.

[personal profile] katsuko and I may have splurged, however, and got some cake for our New Years celebration. Usually we try to go to Melting Pot, but this was a lot cheaper.

Luci is currently stalking the living room looking for spiderwebs, because our little black cat is a huge dork.

And lastly, I bought us a few storage tubs at Target while they were on sale for us to eventually start going through our outside storage room, with the plan to eventually clear out the storage locker we're paying $70 a month... but that might be a project for when it's not below freezing outside.

And that's it for me for tonight. Later, all.

Recipes

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I ended up going through about 8 of my main cookbooks and found a few recipes that I'll cook up this weekend. Maybe I'll even do some of them tomorrow. I meant to leave the cookbooks out so that I can list links to the recipes I'll be making, but dumbass here forgot and put them all away, so I'll have to get them out again to make meals. It'll certainly be easier to stick to this diet if I already have the meals prepped ahead of time.

Or, since I don't have to go to work until Wednesday, maybe I'll wait to do all this cooking until Monday and Tuesday. Then tomorrow I can just cook up enough to get us through to Monday. Plan? Plan.

But I also found a few recipes online that I may try to make whenever I do this cooking. So that I can find them again later, I'm going to list them here. If they have a ☺ next to it, I have everything I need to make it. So... )

That's enough to keep me busy for a little while, I think, even if I just make the things that I currently have the ingredients for. I'm aiming for high fat and low carbs with medium protein, so most of these should fit nicely in there.

And that's it.
