I am scattered here and there so far this morning, who knows how this post will be?
I woke up way out of sorts this morning, first of all, my alarm has quit working - I use my phone and I'm sure I have unset it somehow along the way. I didn't really need to get up at that unholy hour anyway....I go in to the j-o-b late today...and work way late--til five-thirty. I don't usually mind doing it, but this day could end up being very interesting, as I am hobbling around, about half stooped over. I hurt my back and right arm late yesterday, carrying groceries and other things from my car to the apartment. By far, the carrying issue living here, is the worst the deal with. I knew when I put it all down on the island in my kitchen that I had done some damage, but I had hoped it would improve over night. Not so much. It took a pill and a half to make it bearable this morning, and honestly, I am wondering how in the hell I am going to get through this day. Not going in to work is not an option, one of the girls is out on vacation. Being alone at that job is very difficult if not impossible, especially from bells to bells and I just can't do that to the one that will be there. So...wish me luck, okay?
It rained. And rained. And then rained some more. This area has had just over five inches of rain, in the previous twenty-four hour period. Of course, all of that wet was joined by thunder, lightening, wind, and hail. It makes for very bad sleeping. The noise and light show freaks out my ktties, and they will not leave me alone...so all night, I had one or both of them pawing at me, telling me to wake up and do something about it. I did not know that cats were afraid of storms, and when I did find that out---it used to be they hid under the bed. Not anymore. Mom is the fixer of all things, so why can't I make that stop? Apparently having my hand on them makes it better...so I am tired on top of all my glory this morning.
I am hungry for my mom's potato salad and burgers on the grill.I don't even eat meat, usually. Occasionally, a girl just has to have a good hamburger though...so I may be forced to eat one. As for the potato salad --ugh, too much crap in it to be any kind of good for you...and I will just have to forgo that one. I can make my mom's recipe, but it just isn't the same. She was the master. I miss you mom. And not just for your food. :)
Since I am unable to walk (I mean really WALK), or work out at the gym lately, I have been trying to adjust my intake daily to keep from gaining any weight back. So far, it's fine. But then --- my stupid doctor that I saw this week, jumped on me for my BMI being too low. What? I have worked hard to get it down where it is, and no way am I going to purposely gain. Good heavens, what it he talking about? It is at 19.6--according to him, and all of the fitness experts say that anything over 18.5 is perfectly fine. I told him there is a big difference between being at this weight through no effort, and working really hard, HEALTHFULLY to get to this point. I do not have osteoporosis and my bone density test results were wonderful. (it was the first test I have aced, medically in like, FOREVER). So, no. I am not going to change my current status, not if I can help it.
I love Ann Curry and I am happy that she took over on the Today show.
Lots of things happening this weekend and I have no idea how any of it will shake out. Hopefully I will be able to at least DO something. Next weekend --- I work. I will be in the finance office from Wednesday evening to Saturday evening. Long hours, and I have my regular job on top. It will work out fine, it always does...but it does stress me out a bit.
I am SO effing tired of the word... WIENER. Good hell, give it up already.
And I have to get UP. And get moving. Now. Oh help me, I hurt. Happy Friday...Here I go. :)
