Dear Diary Friday...


Thank the Goddess it is FRIDAY! I went to bed with a headache and woke up with a headache but at least in between, I slept! It is nice to have the insomnia just make an appearance and leave this time...keeping my fingers crossed.

Last night I went to the gym and then came home and relaxed again. I had a cat that was not feeling very well and so I wanted to just spend time with him, keep him close to me and make sure he was going to be okay. He is doing wonderful this morning and that means the world to me.

Yesterday, and this entire week, has just been total insanity at my work. We are far busier than normal, I have taken on our biggest client and will now be processing claims for the client as well. I have been in and out of meetings all week, working in storage, opening mail, and doing a little bit of work for each manager and supervisor and department. Call it job security. One thing that I have noticed while being all over this company this week is how big of ears and big of mouths some of my co-workers have. I don't understand why some people think it is okay to listen in on a conversation you are having either on the phone or with another person and JUMP INTO THE CONVERSATION AND MAKE COMMENTS. Call me old fashioned, but I think it is rude to butt into a conversation that I am not having DIRECTLY with you....especially if I am on the phone!!! And then to eaves drop on what I am discussing and run around to other folks in the company and discuss it with them....well, that is below tacky. And people wonder why I keep my mouth shut when it comes to stuff that I know is going on here!

Weekend is shaping up to be good and quiet. I am going to the gym tonight and then not sure what is on par after that. Saturday is my cleaning day and then meeting up with the Poors for dinner for Jer's birthday. Sunday I am cleaning carpets all day long and then I am going to call the Poors and see if they are needing some extra hands at their house with the basement. Should be a great weekend!

Dear Diary Thursday...


It has been an up and down week. I have been troubled by some issues but I think that they have been dealt with and now the rest of the week, and hopefully the month, will be smooth. And let me just say how good it feels to feel good and healthy for a change!!!

Last night I spent over at my folks house again dealing with some financial worries that have come up for them. Then I went home to e-mail an old friend of mine who has recently contacted me. This woman is an AMAZING person and I am so glad we have rekindled an old friendship!! After that Dylan and I talked for awhile and then just relaxed and watched TV. I forgot how nice it is to be able to just SIT in front of a TV and relax. Oh, and Dylan's mom came over for a little while and we ended up talking about the wedding and our honeymoon....this is getting kind of strange but I haven't had a panic attack yet.

Tonight I plan on the gym (of course) and then I am going to get some cleaning done. Dylan and I are going to have to be good and stay home for a couple of weeks and save up some money. We are doing okay financially, but it is always nice to have a bit of a "cushion" in the account.

And did I mention I started my morning off great coke and fudge brownie....yummy!!!

I have found another issue that irritates the piss right out of me. I have a co-worker who is CONSTANTLY bitching about how over worked she is, how she doesn't have time to do anything, blah blah blah....but amazingly enough, every time I see her she is either with a friend at her desk gossiping or at somebody else's desk chatting. Maybe if people spent more time DOING THEIR WORK they would not feel so overwhelmed!!! And don't even get me started on how this person is always saying they should hire another person for her department....WHY THE FUCK SHOULD THEY???!! Okay, that's off my chest....I feel better....thanks. coke and fudge brownie, breakfast of champions!

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Dear Diary Tuesday....



The insomnia jag for this quarter has started. I was in bed and asleep by 9:00 last night and then awake at 11:30 and tossed and turned until 3:00 and then just gave up and started my day. I am exhausted and cranky and my head and body hurt. I HATE the first few days of having insomnia. After that, I am functional.

Stopped in to wish my folks a happy anniversary and for the first time in 35 years, my dad bought my mom a mushy lovey-dovey anniversary card! He even wrote some very sweet sentiments in it. I just love that as my dad gets older, he is even getting more mushy and romantic. I think it is driving my mom crazy but I think she secretly loves it.

The doctor appointment yesterday went good and my doctor is very impressed with my success at losing weight, somewhat setting a date to getting married, and buying a house all in one year. She did say that I need to start watching my stress level as all of that MIGHT sneak up on me this year but I told her I don't have time to let it. We did discuss a few treatment options for a condition that I currently have but I am going to see if I can fight it on my own FIRST and then move on to medication. I hate taking medication other than my birth control and stuff for my headaches. Oh well, the joys of getting old.

Looks like a busy weekend for me. My mom and I are going to be cleaning all of the carpets in her house AND my house all in one day. Plus I need to shampoo her furniture on top of that. This will be my Sunday. I believe Saturday will involve Dylan and I cleaning our house and then doing some grocery shopping. Friday I am planning NOTHING other than going to the gym. I just don't feel up to being overly social these days....probably has to do with the insomnia.

Hope all is well in your world.

Dear Diary Monday...


I am getting to be such a slack ass on this blog and not doing much to change that currently.

Weekend was good. I had a viewing on Friday and Dylan got us dinner. Saturday Dylan and I spent the day running around and then got a cheapo pizza from Wild Mushroom and sat at home and watched tv. Sunday I did shopping with my folks and then Dylan and I took them to dinner at the Red Lobster. All in all, not a very exciting weekend but a relaxing one.

Speaking of the folks, it is their 35 year anniversary tomorrow!!! I am the only one the kids that even acknowledges their anniversary so I try and do something special for them every year. Not sure what we are doing tomorrow, but I am going to be spending the evening at their home....I am sure part of it will involve dinner.

Wish I had more to say but I just don't want to type anymore!
