Tired of Poker

I have now solved about 98% of my comment spam problem with four words. Poker, hold'em, hold-em, and holdem are now taboo words on my comments section. That said if you're ever inviting me to a poker tournament or something to that effect, do not do it through my blog comments.

sick and tired

I am sick and tired. No, really. I could feel a cold coming on starting maybe about Thursday or so, but today it really hit. I woke up this morning feeling awful, and all I could eat that didn't make me feel worse was toast. It's because I'm working so hard and not taking care of myself. I've been getting sick a lot more lately, and I've shown other signs of Kim-neglect such as mood swings and gaining some weight. I know that those things arent really really huge issues, but they remind me that I need to work hard not just at the office, but at taking care of my life, too. So today I listened to my body and I stayed in bed most of the day. Tomorrow I'm going to find other ways of taking care of myself, like taking breaks at work, and drinking more water. Something I could really use at work is a plant. I know that sounds crazy, but it's true. I need a plant on my desk. Something not too big, and with nice green leaves that don't shed or make a lot of mess. I like plants. I think they help me to be calmer during the day. Maybe it's all the oxygen they produce, or something like that. But either way, my desk needs a plant. One of these days I'm going to get one.

Tomorrow is Valentine's day. I feel really disappointed, because I was going to celebrate with Myles tonight instead of tomorrow night. We have choir on mondays, so there won't be time to do anything special tomorrow. But since I was sick, we didn't get to do anything. I was going to make him dinner, and get a bottle of wine. He's done special, romantic things like that for me in the past, so I wanted to make something special for him this time. But it didnt' work out that way. I know he understands, but It doesn't stop me from feeling disappointed. I'd had it all worked out in my head how I wanted it to be. Believe it or not, but I'm not very good at doing romantic things like that. Myles is the one who's good at it. He makes me feel so special, and I wanted to do the same for him. Maybe next year, when I'm not coughing and falling asleep every 2 hours.

I'm so tired

I am so tired it's unbelievable. It feels like all I do is work or sleep. With hurried meals in between. This is no way to live. But I'm pushing myself because I know it will pay off eventually. I've got a good career, and I'm getting better and better at it all the time. I'm learning how to run the lab without Raeme there to tell me what to do, which is saying something. There's a lot to keep an eye on. I'm working on being more efficient in my work to get more done faster, while still doing the work well. It will be ok. Tomorrow will be a hard day, though. We have three doctors scheduled, all seeing a patient about every 30 minutes or so. We also have a frame rep coming in. I'm not looking forward to that at all, because this particular rep is not fun to work with. The last time we placed an order with him, he padded it with about 1,000 dollars worth of frames we didn't order, and sent us the bill! We caught it, luckily. But Raeme could have lost her job on that one, simply because he's a jerk and thinks he can pull stuff like that. I don't want to carry his products anymore period, and I know she feels the same way. So we'll see what happens. It's going to be a busy day. I probably shouldn't dwell on it. So I'm going to go find something else to do. I think watching TV will do very nicely. Goodnight.

one more link in the chain...

I don't usually respond to chain letters or things like that, mostly because I hate how they promise you things if you follow the instructions and threaten "bad luck" if you break it. But since this isn't accompanied by any superstitious threats... I'll repeat the chain that's going around-

If you read this, even if I don't speak to you often, you must post a memory of me.
It can be anything you want, it can be good or bad, just so long as it happened.

Then post this to your journal. See what people remember about you....

Yeah, that's it.

The Stolen Entry

So because I haven't blogged in forever this entry is totally bogus, but here you go!

Sorry to disappoint everyone, but I am still alive, and better yet, I still know how to blog. I just don't have the time to do it. I barely made enough time right now... I'm going to go to dinner now. Because I'm hungry. Very hungry. I'd rather eat than blog. Later!
