I’m still here — past the halfway mark! Who’s still in the running for bets on when I’ll give up??
Thursday kicked my booty. Woke up with a massive headache and not wanting to get out of bed, but I had to.
It didn’t help that someone else wouldn’t get out of bed either. I don’t think she rolled out of bed until after I finished my first report.
Jeff got out of bed and went for doughnuts, since I insisted they would cure my headache. Apparently the rest of the area had the same idea, because this is all the shop had left… well, minus the ones Jeff had… he was too quick.
Lots of work. Thursday are always a busy work day, because I have a lot of stuff to get done for new product releases on Friday.
Riley was insisting on sitting on my lap while I worked… regardless of the fact that I wouldn’t be able to work with her on my lap. So, I got out her favorite blanket from last winter and set her up on my reading chair. She was able to watch me and the guinea pigs when she felt like it, but she mostly slept.
While I worked, Jeff got stuff done around the house. He cleaned all the dust from the fans, did laundry…
Then I got a random gall bladder attack and had to pass out for a couple of hours :-\ Riley curled up with me in bed while I slept through the attack. Two years ago I never thought I’d be able to sleep through the pain, but now it’s become my only way to cope since I can’t take anything and the surgeons wont take the evil thing out!!
After I recovered, I was able to hit up Target with Jeff. We were desperately out of uh… everything essential? Right before leaving the house, I used the last of our toothpaste! So, we stocked up and surprisingly stuck to our shopping list! Jeff remarked that it was a minor miracle that we stayed under $100.
When we got home, my gallbladder was back to spasming. I couldn’t fall back to sleep, so I just stuck it out.
Unfortunately the attack didn’t stop, but I was eventually able to sit up without getting sick… so I got more work done. I arrange all my creative team’s layouts in this side by side template to credit them in my new release blog post & newsletter.
At least Thursday night brings Grey’s <3 so so happy for Grey’s! LOL! I honestly hope the show ends with this season :-\ but I have a feeling I’ll be addicted no matter how long it runs. After finishing up the work that I could do, I tried to leave love at the other WIML blogs before Grey’s started… but I ended up lying back down, just couldn’t handle the pain anymore.
I ended up finally starting The Canada Party’s Manifesto – America But Better. Yes, I will be voting for the people of Canada instead of a least objectionable millionaire. Honestly, it’s like reading my own “manifesto” about everything that’s wrong with our country and system, but funnier!
Riley also decided to start smothering me for attention. She’s so needy!
Well, Grey’s is on now — time to wrap up this post and give those doctors my undivided attention! My friends on the east coast tell me this episode is MUCH better than the other ones this season. I also have to wake Jeff up soon and shove him out the door to work!
Tomorrow I have work to catch up on, then I’m going to get supplies for a craft exchange I’ve finally decided on my project!
