So, How Was Your Day?

Mine was pretty good! Work went by fast, and then I went for a long walk that was immediately canceled out by all the Easter candy I ate when I got home. I also got a really good night’s sleep last night for the first time in a few days, so I no longer feel like crap.

    I had a really long meeting first thing this morning, and was supposed to go to another meeting at my side job this afternoon. Luckily, I texted someone there to make sure we were still meeting because it was canceled, and no one told me. Sigh.

    This might be better suited to Project Club, but I’ve been trying to watch my diet to see if that helps with my stomach troubles and overall health. I’ve been eating way too much junk food lately. I did a rough estimate of the grams of fat I eat per day, and I was mildly horrified.

    I look forward to watching iZombie tonight, but I also have to run some errands and knock a few items off the good old to-do list.

      I had terrible acid for years. I think the main thing that fixed me is really simple/stupid: now I start every day with a pint glass of water. Like, as soon as I wake up, I hit the kitchen and down a cool, delicious H2O. Maybe that’ll help you too?

        Thanks! I know I don’t drink enough water, so you might be on to something.

    I will balance Theresa out by noting I got very little sleep last night so today is already irritating. I did do laundry, though, which is great, even though laundry can never be slayed as it is the hydra.

      On the subject of laundry, a rant. My new building only has one set of machines because there are only four units, but when I moved in the washer didn’t work (which I discovered after putting 8 quarters in the machine and nothing happening when I hit the start button). Took the landlady two weeks to replace it (during which time my back was fucked so I ended up paying $30 for a laundry service) and when the new machine was finally ready I did my first load of laundry and discovered that something was fucked up and the machine wasn’t draining into the sink and my clothes were soaking wet. I had to wring out and drip dry a bunch of stuff and everything else had to be run through the dry cycle three times. It’s been a few days and still haven’t heard back from the landlady about it being fixed so I think I’m going to tell her I need a reduction in next month’s rent since I signed the lease with the assurance that I could do laundry in the building.

  3. My kid has been throwing up since 3am. So not great. She took a two-hour nap so I got some sleep too but poor mr truck has been running around like crazy trying to work and take care of us and today was the only day he had time to go to the DMV for our car registration nonsense! I wish he could take a nap!
    Finally, yesterday was my first day off from work and my boss not only screwed up a bunch of stuff, he also was trying to train someone else to do the stuff he was supposed to cover for me. I got really annoyed by that because if I had known she was going to do it, I would have trained her myself so she did it correctly! My friend was telling me to try to make me laugh but it just made me mad. Just need to disconnect completely.

    I had therapy first thing this morning, my second session ever, and it was great. I didn’t cry once and I got some good book recommendations. Then when I got back to the office I found that one of my coworkers had left a surprise bag of donuts on my desk! I just finished lunch, so I’m saving them for a mid-afternon snack.

    My back felt like shit the last couple of days (I suspect I undid a lot of my healing when I played “flying” (i.e. I pick him up and hold him horizontally and run around for a while) with my nephew on Easter) and I took one of my leftover muscle relaxers on Monday night which didn’t really help much in the moment but made me extremely sleepy yesterday and also my back felt like shit. But then last night it magically just started feeling relatively ok again! Miracles happen! I went to bed at like 8PM last night so today has been ok. It’s starting to get busy at work again and the next few weeks will be rough but it’s going to be a lot easier to deal with than our last busy period because I am no longer apartment hunting/moving so it will just be stress instead of stress on stress on stress.

    I live in a different country right now and I’m trying my best to be open to different ways of doing things, but sometimes the differences are just TOO much. Yesterday, I went to a clothing store and one of the sales associates (there were like 10 milling around on each floor and only 4 customers) came up to help me. Except in this store, help meant standing rightnext to me and not letting me just browse through stacks of clothes but pulling out what she thought I wanted and then trailing me to the dressing room and standing outside it. I was so frazzled that I put everything back (she put everything back) and I left without buying clothes that I actually needed! Now that I write this, I see how dumb it sounds. But I just need my American space!

    • hotspur says:

      The 10:4 ratio sounds like you are in China? Are you?? (You don’t have to reveal your whereabouts!) When I was in China, I noticed stores sometimes had triply as many floor workers as customers. I was told by an American expat that it was the half-communist/half-capitalist “We have a billion people who need jobs” jobs program.

        I’m in India, but that’s the same reasoning I had too. On the one hand, I like shops here that are so old-fashioned that everything is kept behind a counter like it’s the original bergdorf goodman and you point to what you want (no not that green one, THAT green one), then your choices get wrapped individually, receipts are written, receipts are sent to a different floor, you are escorted to the billing counter on the first floor and then after a 20 minute process (at least!), you are able to take possession of your goods. it’s like the most mundane bureaucracy and it is both mind-boggling and delightful. But this store was a modern store but no one would let me touch the clothes hanging on the sales floor.
