Had a scary few days last week...
my mood dropped within about 30 minutes one day at work. Then the day after, I was almost 2 hours late for work. I got up somewhat on time. But laid on the couch for an hour or so. I’m fine now... thank God. I guess I just hadn’t gotten enough down time. Or maybe I’m doing a piss-poor job of staying hydrated this summer. I don’t know.
And of course!
I’m still adjusting to my new hours: a 12 and three 8’s. But I’ve also made 2 trips to Philly a month apart. This last trip? I drove on about 3 hours of sleep after working two 8’s (the last turned into a 12... sigh) just to turn around and drive right back home the next day. One day off and it was back to work. Back to three 12’s because a colleague had the week off.
No. Not that one.
That one is on the underbosses radar. She realizes that she takes a lot of time off and I’ve been covering for her. I’m the only one that can because of my second position (totally confusing). It finally hit the underboss after I worked about 100 in a pay period. She decided it was best to have a meeting with the boss and the emergency room care coordinators. But first my colleague would get upset when I wouldn’t cover for her again 3 weeks later!
That’s that bullshit *in my Will Smith Bad Boys 2 voice*
Speaking of the couch.
I’m obviously still sleeping on it. Sigh... I just can’t seem to move back into my room. I even have a TV/DVD combo and a Firestick now! If I could keep up with the kitchen and bathroom i.e. “the filthiest rooms in my apartment”, I would spend more time in my bed instead of piles of clothes . I’m thinking about calling in a housekeeper sooner to do just that. Problem solved! I hope.
It’s month 7 on the tretinoin...
and my skin looks great! My body? Sigh... I haven’t hit 200 lbs! Yaaaayyyy meeee! Yet. Sigh... I am learning to accept my body though. Grueling. Still need a new wardrobe. I’ve just about run out of clothes that fit well or fit at all. If I could only find the energy to smartly shop for girly-tomboy threads to drape this spoon-shaped body complete with a cauldron-type pot belly, I may come into greater acceptance.
