sandmansister: (BtVS - Afterness)
Well, the after-ness was really over the weekend... but today it still kind of feels like it (though the reasons aren't nearly as much fun.

Made it home from visiting [livejournal.com profile] nostradomnatrix and [livejournal.com profile] skiggaret on Monday. Had a delay in Chicago (note me dying of the not shock; next time I'll spend the extra $50 and fly nonstop) but I made it with 5 minutes to spare. My luggage? Not so fortunate. This wouldn't have been so bad, except the Toothless Coot at the baggage area kept trying to put a positive spin on it. Read more... )

In other news, my promotion (the one I was promised in September) finally went through on February 1st. Raise is decent, but will be even sweeter when my merit increase in June bumps it up more.

Also lost 8lbs. without really trying (took about 3 weeks). Sure, I've aimed to be a bit more conscious about what I eat and my level of activity, but there's been nothing I consider really stunning in my efforts. Still, the velvet jeans I wore to [livejournal.com profile] blondelace's Krimmas party? A bit loose. Hooray that! It's only a drop in the bucket, but must lose 8 before I can lose 80, right?

M'boy is still wonderful (and forgiving of drunk dialing - w00t!) and I plan to spend as much time as possible with him since I was rather pitiful without him on the trip.

All in all, life is sweet.

Woke up w/sinus headache again today. Took advantage of that + inclement weather combo to take a mental health/get things done day. Feel loads better on many fronts.

Sheesh, was it really that much before Krimmas that I posted last? What a slaxx0r I am! For those interested here's that scoop ) Since then, things are coasting along. Work is still a bit strange, but things are changing (as must needs be in the wake of a sizeable layoff). It's taking longer to manifest than I'd like, but corporate bureaucracy grinds away. Getting a few calls here & there. We'll see what turns up. It's no longer the massive source of stress, but more money would be great. And that whole fulfillment thing? Yeah, still pursuing that concept too.

Got a lot to look forward to, including time with Tribe to celebrate 5 years of happiness for [livejournal.com profile] nostradomnatrix and [livejournal.com profile] skiggaret... triple w00t with a cherry on top! (Wait, isn't [livejournal.com profile] muse_of_chaos the cherry on top? Um...) Then begins the madness that is Scarborough. Fortunately, my masquer status doesn't mean the pressure or time constraints of a cast member, but it's still a commitment. The Lace will be learning some new music (though my routine will be largely the same as it's been all new to me for the last 2 years)!

Feeling proud of myself today. Got all kinds of piddly chores knocked out (they beat me down worse than 2-3 big projects. Seriously) and managed a brief workout last night. Still learning better mental habits like staying present and not immediately denigrating or minimizing my successes. It's a lifelong journey, I'm sure, but my wonderful Arbiter is so grounding and loving that it's easier to think I can tackle big issues with him in my corner. Ain't love grand?

And now before I get too, too rambly... 'night all. Miss & love you all.

Not sure how I managed it, but my TMJ is all out of whack. It was just the slightest bit off in Chicago, but over the weekend it progressed to damned near unmanageable.

Boo.

Even saw Dr. Steve on Friday and he told me to *not* hold back from chewing on that side. In hindsight, I'm not sure it was all too clever of me to follow that advice. Yesterday morning I could barely open my mouth wide enough to accommodate toast.

Toast, for chrissakes!

I felt like a Ron White punchline. "Your system's kickin' back... broth?!?!?"

So today I am home taking NSAIDs and trying to keep moist heat on it. I'm back to Dr. Steve on Wednesday. Let's hope I'm better by then, 'cuz this is teh suxx0rs.

Seriously.

I have strep throat.

Sure, I've got meds now too, but they're not working yet. I have felt rotten for 6 days now, and I am tired of raw nose and throat which causes me agony when I so much as swallow water.

I. Hete. This.



The end.

Still feeling under the weather... and considering the weather we've had lately, that's not too surprising. Congestion abounds, as does my pitifulness. I'm taking 12-hour doses of Sudafed every 4-6 hours... and still I have to stuff Kleenex up my nose. Bah.

My throat is really sore too. Beyond I'm-coughing-a-lot sore... swollen sore. It hurts to swallow. I can't see spots, but it's tender. I started gargling with saltwater yesterday in hopes of drawing out the infection, but it's not working fast enough for me.

I think I'm-a go to the doctor.

*gasp aargh*

No, I'm not phobic... I just don't want to immediately throw antibiotics at a problem. I'd rather give my immune system a chance first, thankyew very much.

Now that it's failed me miserably, I'll cave in and get meds.

Here's hoping I'm well enough for the Austin Scarborough promo this weekend. Oh, and maybe rehearsal on Thursday. That would be good too. The seat of my pants got worn out enough last season, thanks. This time around I'd like to sort of know what I'm doing.

... aaaaand I'm spent.

Looks like my mutant healing powers were thwarted. I am chilled.


Yes. Amy = cold.



Start scanning the skies for horsemen, or fork over some meds. It's either a catastrophic event or I'm running a low-grade fever.

Sadly, I think it's the latter as my whole body aches.

Sadder still, I have derby practice tonight. If I miss, I'm in jeopardy of missing the April bout. To fix it, I need to coordinate a personal session with Razen Kane. For any of you who have seen her skate, you know this will result in a whole different kind of aching (provided I survive). See, she couldn't decide on us or the Dallas Diamonds (women's football) and she used to be a personal trainer.

Oy.



I hear my mattress calling me... or is that the pillowcase besmirched by [livejournal.com profile] budrospadre? Give me enough Sudafed and I may not know the difference.

Buh. BYE.

I feel like ass... and the parts of me that actually are ass? Bah. (No, [livejournal.com profile] nostradomnatrix, there's no Poopoocabra possession going on here.)

Throat scratchy. Head woolly. Achey.

I either need to get better or sicker. When I am in this piddling waiting-for-something-to-happen stage, I am a miserable, whiny bitch.
