So I feel like ass. And yet, I’m still at work because as much as my boss has been obsessed with redundancy among our team, she hasn’t bothered to create any for me, so I don’t get to stay home even though my head feels like it’s going to explode. Because God forbid anybody actually CALL Endnote tech support when they can’t figure out why the program is doing something funky. Which I just did to tell them that their stylesheet for APA 6th edition was just flat wrong. I can’t say that all the drugs I’m on to help me get through the day are doing much for my Little Mary Sunshine personality today… Dear God, give me a gusher of a rain to wash away all this pollen!
After a messload of brainstorming with Susan and Claire yesterday, I think I’m finally starting to get a handle on Lachlan and to maybe, kinda, sorta, be on the road back to a normal level of writing. I did not write over the weekend but Monday I had 823 words and yesterday 635 words. That made me VERY happy. I’m not ready to declare a bump in word count goal yet, but it’s definitely a good start to the week.
In other random news, I have been griping a lot about my “batwings” this year, ever since hubby’s grandmother told me over Christmas that I have fat arms (yes, I’m still offended and hung up on that). I haven’t been exercising regularly over the last month, but for the heck of it, I measured my arm yesterday…and it’s down 3/4″ and there is noticeably less…wing. Um…so apparently all I needed was to do biceps curls repeatedly every day with my 50 pound dog? IDK. But whatever, I’ll take it. My weight has been holding steady, so I’m very relieved by that, as I haven’t done a whole lot to cut back my eating, despite my lack of exercise. Most mornings I’m falling asleep on the sofa after feeding Daisy breakfast until it’s time to shower for work. Right now sleep is just more of a priority for me. I have to say, I kinda miss running though. I’ll just restart the C25K program whenever Daisy is back on her feet and I’m able to have a normal schedule again.
