Tradition

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Luci has discovered the time honored kitty tradition in this house of fussing at me when I sneeze. Given that I'm doing a lot of sneezing... Well... She's doing a lot of fussing. She's sitting on her kitty condo giving me judging looks, like "how dare you" and so forth. Whatever it is that I have, I've had it for almost two weeks now. I can't seem to quite shake it, and that's a huge page, because this Thursday is my birthday. I was sick on my birthday last year and wasn't able to go down to the family's. I don't want to do that again this year. At least it's probably not bronchitis with an upper respiratory infection this year?

Oh, and she doesn't much care for sniffling either. One guess what else I'm doing a lot of that as well.

So coughing, sneezing, runny (but yet also congested) nose, sore throat, headache, fatigue, dizzy spells, and occasional low grade (less than 100°F/37.8°C) fever that comes and goes. WebMD says the common cold, but I can't say I've had one last this long before... or at least not that I can remember.

All of that said, I didn't get a lot done. Glynda was still out today, and she'll be out again tomorrow. That means, while LaTrease is opening Prometric, I'm pretty much running the ship from, say, 9 in the morning until when I go on lunch at 1:00, then from 1:45 until 5:15 when we close. It feels like a lot, even if it doesn't sound like it. Maybe it just feels like a lot because I feel like hell right now and this job stresses me out in a normal situation.

So I'm going to type up the little I did manage to get handwritten and try to make my word count up to 1,000 words before I go shove [personal profile] katsuko over and go to bed.

So long, my freaky darlings!

Good day

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Today was a pretty nice day. I didn't end up getting a lot of sleep last night, but it wasn't a debilitating lack of sleep. We even did get out to see Black Panther this morning. (No spoilers, but I found the minor characters to be absolutely charming. On a scale of 1 to 10: Everett Ross is a 10, M'Baku is an 11 or a 12, and Shuri is around a 27. The villain was thorough and nuanced and well-rounded. Most of all, he was believable, which is more than can be said for Zemo. And that's all I have to say on that.)

As for the rest of the day... Well, it's kind of all a blur. I'm sure things happened, but I'm not completely sure as to the order or veracity of them. There was food. There was tea. There was writing. There was maybe a nap? I'm not sure on that one. I'm likewise pretty sure that there wasn't a dinner in there, but I can't be certain. And I know I've cuddled with kitties a lot today. I think they were even my own kitties.

So yeah, obviously still feeling sick. If it didn't cost so much, I would actually try to get into Urgent Care and see if they know what's up with me. But my copay is $60, and that's more than I have to spare right now.

And seriously, I keep drifting off. Not to sleep, but to a sort of a la-la land, where I could swear I'm doing something, but then I realize I'm just staring off into space and way too much time has passed. So I think I'm going to go throw myself at my bed and see if one of these drifting spells with drift me to sleep. Plan? Plan.

Good night, all.

The work week is over

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Thank all the gods the work week is finally over for me. It's been a particularly shitty one, and I'm glad it's over and done with. I have a short week next week, thanks to me taking Thursday and Friday off for my birthday. It's just been one thing after another after another: mostly testers with attitudes and other such crap.

But there's also been a lot of singing "Jesus, take the wheel," and if I hear that again in the next month, I'm going to go around the bend. Somehow Glynda seems to think, if she sings that often enough, everything will magically be better? I don't know. All I know for certain is, if you hear that seven or eight times a day, every day, it gets really, really annoying really, really quickly. I'm sure she thinks it's cute, but it's killing me here.

Cut for personal darkness )

And yeah, that was kind of... ehhh of me. I feel a little better getting it out though, so I guess that's what counts. I guess. I really don't know.

I do know that, when I checked my temperature last night before bed, it was 100.1°F/37.8°C, and I still had to go to work, because I was going to be the only person closing to be able to do the router upgrade. And I did it. I powered through an entire work day of dizzy spells and feeling generally out of it. I climbed on chairs and messed about with expensive electronics, and I can't even tell you know much about what I did all day... or ate for lunch... or talked about with [personal profile] katsuko... or if I ate dinner... or much of anything.

So, yeah, I'm glad this work week is finally over, and I hope my birthday week is better than this has been. On that note, good night, all.

I don't even

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
What a fucking day...

We left the house on time this morning. Only, it took us twice as long as normal to get to the train station thanks to a couple of wrecks of Georgia 400. That ended up making me fifteen minutes late to work. Where I found out that we had some real attitudes testing, though mostly of course GACEs. I went to ask LaTrease about how to put in the time for the fifteen minutes I was late... and found out that I'm more than likely going to have to stay late tomorrow to do some server upgrades at Prometric.

This gets better when you add in the fact that I have almost no voice. It gets better when I don't have to talk and can rest it a bit, but since that doesn't really happen at work, it's going to be interesting trying to be on a conference call with tech support (in India) trying to make myself heard.

Everything else was just slightly off the rest of the day. I still feel like warmed over shit.

But I was flat out informed that I could not take any of my accrued sick leave balance because we're so short-staffed. That's because we're a department of five people with absolutely no extra support. If one person is out, everything goes into crisis mode. Given that tomorrow is Anastasia's last day before her maternity leave, we're going to be running in crisis mode for the next month.

But that's enough rant for one day. I'm going to start trying to get some of this handwritten bit typed up... and then I'm going the hell to be. Good night, all.

Well...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, today was one hell of a day. No screaming matches, which is good, but I felt like hell, tired and exhausted and coughing and sick and dizzy. So. Damn. Dizzy. Big time not fun, that. I still powered through the work day. I even managed to hang at Mirko with [personal profile] katsuko for her shift... but I don't have much left in me.

I'm hoping I'm able to drag some reserves up from somewhere for tomorrow at work. Right now, I could freaking collapse where I sit and not move again for another ten or twelve days. Especially if I had a nice heating pad to work on loosening up my neck and shoulders and back from the knots they've been in for forever.

(I really need to dig up the money from somewhere for an actual massage. I always feel so much better afterwards, but somehow I can't quite manage to convince myself that it would be a good thing for me to be doing. Hells, sometimes I give a lot of thought to trying acupuncture or acupressure to help manage my pain. But that's neither here nor there.)

Also, I hate how much I end up thinking about Tallahassee some days. It was by no means perfect, but it was better. And now every time I let my mind wander, I end getting little scenes from around the city that I would usually be driving. Like the turn into the parking lot of the Lake Ella Publix. Or the part of Tharpe Street right in front of Sweet Pea Cafe. Or the view down Tennessee Street from Donut Kingdom. Or turning onto High Road from the CVS. And so on and so forth.

And now I'm a little sad, in addition to be sick, cold, dizzy, and tired. I think I'm going to go throw myself under my covers and pursue a bit of sleep and see if it helps any of these in any small way. Good night, all.

Hacking

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I have had the hacking cough that's getting worse going most of the day. It's not made for a fun or enjoyable day at work, that's for certain. I end up feeling like I'm choking on air, which is not fun, let me tell you.

I also end up feeling like I'm getting ready for something. Of course conversion turns around to how much everyone is getting back on taxes or how much everyone will have to try to make niCE AND GET ALONG. That one is always a neat trick.

And I'm seriously drifting of consciousness too much to try to keep typing this up. I can barely keep my eyes open. I still need to take my temperature again before bed, take my happy ass to bed, and then go the fuck to sleep.

Good night, all.

So tired

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It's taking everything I've got to keep my eyes open long enough to type this up and get it ready to go. It's the misleading kind of sleepy, where I know I'm tired but I'm so loopy that that I have no real idea what I'm doing. Honestly. I started this entry hours ago, but I had to erase it and start again because it was so much randomness.

Not my usual babble, I mean. I mean that it was happened to be a long string of words, mostly misspelled, tacked on one after the other. They made no sense in context -- or out of context for that matter either. That seems to indicate to me that clearly I am in need of further sleep and to quit trying to futz about with this. Because, really, sense isn't going to be happening at this rate.

This is as good as it's going to get, thanks in no small part to the TheraFlu I've got going through my system right now.

So, yeah, gonna go lay down and hope for the best. Good night, all.

Happy birthday, katsuko!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Happy birthday, [personal profile] katsuko! I hope that I've managed to provide a good day for you. Or at least a pleasingly entertaining one? I'm sure Luci has made it an entertaining one, if nothing else, given her antics today.

I really don't have anything else to say for myself for today. I've got TheraFlu in my system, so I'm a little loopy, but I'm going to try to get some of this handwritten stuff typed up before the loopiness truly catches up with me.

Later, all.

Blegh

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
This is quickly becoming one of my most common subject lines for the year... or at least the month. I'm still feeling pretty damn cruddy, so that hasn't really changed, but the fever is pretty much remaining in place. Thankfully, though, it's also pretty much remaining at right around 99°F/37.2°C. I can't quite seem to budge it down, but at least it isn't going up either.

I'm not really sure why [personal profile] katsuko is bothering with her alarms because I know she's hit snooze at least a good five or six times in 9 minute intervals. I'm equally curious why I have't just reached over and turned it completely off myself, at least until I'm done here and can go to bed and all myself.

At least Luci is having fun, though. Between her exploring and chasing her own tail and going after the cords on the blinds, she's been doing a very good job of keeping herself entertained.

I swear, I'm going to take [personal profile] katsuko's phone and turn the alarm off myself. Of course, that'll just wake her up again, but still... it goes off every 9 minutes and it's getting annoying. Every 9 minutes for the last hour... Yeah, it's getting past annoying.

And yeah, I should be typing up my handwritten stuff, but it's getting late, and while I'm not tired strictly speaking, I am starting to feel sort of worn out, like I've done too much today -- even though I've pretty much done nothing. And that's a pretty gross feeling too. Anyway, good night, all.

And happy early birthday to my dearest [personal profile] katsuko!

What a day

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I made it through another day at work. I did manage to secure permission from LaTrease to leave as soon as the last tester left for the day, which was at 4:30. It turned out to be a good thing. When I got home, I took my temperature, only to realize it was around 99.1°F. I took some TheraFlu and laid down, fully intending to get up and at least go to CVS to return a purchase that was meant to be on sale but they charged me full price on. Seeing as how I just woke up again, obviously I'm not doing that. Plus it's raining. If I'm already sick, there's no reason to tempt fate and possibly make it worse.

So yeah, in addition to everything else right now, I'm also running a fever. It's still a relatively mild one, even if my baseline temperature is usually around 97.3°F. (To convert all this, I'm usually 36.3°C, but today I'm at 37.3°C.) Not a huge change, but still a little up for me.

Accordingly, I have done very little today. I did manage some writing, at least by hand, but not nearly as much as I wanted to. I managed about 100 words on Monstrous: After Midnight, because Emma is sometimes a difficult character for me to write and sometimes Vasquez likes to clam up on me and not tell me what's going on.

(There is no good way to explain writer's block or character difficulties to a nonwriter that doesn't make you sound insane. "Yes, the voices in my head are not cooperating" just doesn't quite sound sane, you know?

Anyway, my latest dose of TheraFlu is starting to kick in, so I'm going to go throw myself at my bed now. Good night, all.

Sick

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, it's official: I'm starting to get sick. I've got the headache that will not budge. I have the aches and pains. I have chills, but I'm also hot as hell. I have the coughing and the sneezing from hell. I actually have the coughing and the sneezing and the runny nose. To a lesser extent, I even have a bit of productivity in the cough, which is a nice way of saying I'm coughing and sneezing shit out now, though it remains clear. That part is a relatively new development. I am not enjoying it.

But as long as I'm not running fever, I'm going to keep on going in to work, because until I've got the fever part of the equation, I'm not contagious. I want to keep my sick time saved up as long as I can. Or it's just too much of a hassle to call out sick. The latter is probably the more truthful option.

That being said, I'm going to go throw myself under my electric blanket in the hopes that it will soothe my sore and aching muscles. Good night, all.

Blegh

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I... feel like a tiny slice of raw hell.

I've spent most of the day struggling not to throw up. I've been coughing off and on most of the day. I've had a doozy of a headache most of the day. Not a lot to do about any of it, except grin and bear it. I have the sick time available to take tomorrow off work, but I can't. There just aren't enough people available in the department for anyone to call out the entire day. Part of it is okay, but the whole thing is right out.

And I didn't get a lot of writing done, but I also still have so much handwritten waiting to be typed up that it's a bit ridiculous.

So I guess I'm going to go throw myself at my bed now and see if resting some will help me to feel better. Good night, all.

Lazy

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
What a lovely lazy day. I'm seriously not looking forward to having to go back to work tomorrow. I didn't even get the cooking done that I needed to, aside from the bare minimum. Basically, I have the quiches made for breakfast, and that's about it. I mean, we still have broccoli casserole leftover from last week that will be lunch tomorrow, and then I'll have to get off my lazy arse and make some of the other things we'll need for the week.

Some of the things I have in mind for the week include...
Taco Tuesday! Yay!
Garlic "Gnocchi
Some more Broccoli Casserole
HFLC Broccoli and Cheese Soup
Another round of Cheese-"burger" Soup
Peanut Red Curry Soup with Tofu and Veg

...and probably something else ambitious that I can't think of right now because I'm lazy. I'm cramping, I feel like I've been beaten with a stick, I don't want to go back to work tomorrow, about half of my joints hurt... and I'm lazy.

And now this lazy sap is going to go pour herself into a bed because the morning gets here so damn early. 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.

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.
