This and That

Monday, April 26, 2010
I managed to make it through three days of working half days and another weekend. I still don't like weekends. The reason being I've decided, is there is no routine. It's wide open, which leaves my mind free to wander. Overall though, the weekend wasn't too bad.

I look forward to actually having something to look forward to - summer, boats, campfires, smores. Oh and maybe a tan. I went to get a pedicure the other day and the guy that was doing it said, "Why you so white? I've never seen you so white." Gee, thanks. He's right, though. I'm so white I glimmer in the sun like the vampires in the Twilight movies. Which reminds me, I do have something to look forward to - May 2nd. The new Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) book comes out and mine is already pre-ordered. I actually bought the audio cd. Don't hate. I can devour a good book in two hours. I wanted to enjoy this one a little longer. Plus, since I'll be doing a lot of walking this summer to try to get my energy and some muscle tone back, what better way to exercise then to listen to my second favorite book series? My first being Harry Potter, of course.

Today is my first full day back to work. I have plenty to do and that makes me happy. Keep me busy. That's a must. We also have interviews this week and next for our new supervisor, not to mention commencement. This is a very busy time for the office. Thank goodness. I also have another doctor's appointment on Wednesday. We're keeping our fingers and toes crossed for more good news and maybe even a little less blood pressure medicine.


  1. I felt the same way about the weekends. I was very excited for the first time that I actually looked forward to a weekend.

    Good luck at the dr

  2. UGH I didnt know there is a newsookie stackhouse book? I am on the second in the series...and LOVE the show! I can read a good book in a matter of hours as well and of course LOOOVED twilight!
    I loved going back to work too! I was fully off my BP meds at 4-5 it can take a while hang in there!

  3. Still thinking about you. I am so glad you are doing better. I hope all goes well at your doctor appointment on Wed. Oh and I love the Harry Potter series too! I waited to read all the books at the same time. I finished the series in 2 weeks! It was awesome.

  4. No wonder I get along with you so well... I'm a total Harry Potter junkie and love, love, love listening to the audio files on my mps player while exercising!!!!

  5. I went back to week a few days after the funeral, for similar reasons to you - it gave me something to fill my brain with so I couldn't 'wander' (or maybe that's wander and wonder). Fingers and toes crossed for your doc appt ;)
