Dear Diary Wednesday...


Yep, that is how I woke up this morning. I also woke up to a horrible kink in my neck that brought me right out of a really deep sleep. I have no idea what my dream was about but I managed to push myself up to the top of my bed and was pushing my head against the head board until my neck kinked....I think I might have been trying swim but not sure.

I think the stress of putting in so many hours for this job is starting to take its toll. I am going to bed every single night exhausted and waking up every single morning exhausted. I know at one point last night I woke up and the first thing on my mind was how I would code a particular office procedure on a claim. I think I need a couple of days where I am not doing this job 24-7 but right now, I don't see that happening.

Tonight I plan on going home and doing some laundry, putting out all of the trash, taking some clothes over to the folks house to put out for ARC and, of course, processing some claims. I know, I are all extremely jealous of the incredibly "star like" life style I am living right now.

As for this weekend, no plans. I know that Dylan is working this weekend so I might take my mom out shopping and possibly, my dad. Speaking of my Daddy, he had an emergency office visit with his dentist and had to have a back molar extracted that was abscessed....not a fun time. His mouth is all swollen and he was in a lot of pain on Monday but doing much better now. Just one more thing I have to take care.

Dear Diary Monday...

Mood....would be wonderful except for this pesky headache.

The weekend was terrific. Dylan and I spent the entire weekend being together and SHOPPING, which every one knows is my favorite hobby. We bought new plates, some new bedding, and just shopped. It was great to spend all of this time together with him starting a new shift....which we are both finding difficult to adjust to. However, we both are realizing that this change will make us appreciate the time we do have together even more.

Today I spent the day processing claims and running a couple of errands for my folks. My dad had an emergency dental appointment today because his tooth has apparently been hurting (and of course he has not said anything) and so he had to have it pulled and it is abscessed. I went and picked up his prescriptions and did a little bit of grocery shopping for them. All in all, it has been a very productive day and I would have entirely enjoyed it EXCEPT fot this headache, which I know is caused by the elevated pressure in the air.

Shane and I had an awesome talk last night and I am so very, very excited about his opportunity to try out for "Martha Stewart Apprentice." Personally, I think the show would be absolutely stupid NOT to bring him on, but we won't know for 10 days....DAMMIT!!! He sounded like he had a wonderful time and even had a chance to get in some relaxation. We also talked a bit more about the wedding and I think he and I have decided on a couple of of the big ones is me POSSIBLY wearing a wedding dress.....but we will see. Baby steps, very small and tiny baby steps......
