Does my brain make sense?

I think I like Halloween more now (the getting dressed up part) than I did as a kid. As a kid I loved the getting candy part. What a weird concept Halloween is. We go door to door asking people for candy while wearing funny costumes. How bizarre! I don't get it, but I enjoy it.

So yeah, I'm still in the I can't wait to move so I don't have to eat if I don't want to mode. I know, last week I was so concerned about that and now I've done a 180. I don't get it. I was so afraid that I would just not eat and lose control and now I don't have that fear anymore. I guess it's still in the back of my mind a little but I also don't really care. I guess I want to lose a couple of pounds. I don't know what difference it will make so I don't know why I care, but I do. It would if I could just understand any one thing that goes on in my mind. How is Charro going to understand my head if I don't understand it??

Halloween

Seriously, can't I just not eat?? If I ignore the fact that I'm hungry will it go away? Why did my stupid appetite have to come back?

Oh yeah...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

So sleepy

I am so sleepy right now. I am going to bed at 9 tonight!! I woke up this morning and it felt like the middle of the night. I got to the gym and someone came up to me while I was on the treadmill and asked if I was ok. She said "you look exhausted. Your eyes are slits and all bloodshot like you're about to cry." I responded by saying "I am so tired. I don't know why but I am." Oh well. I ran a bit and then taught a class.

I played a little field hockey today. Jumped in on some drills during practice and collided with someone. Luckily we just hit shoulders and we didn't hit that hard. Good thing because I can't be hitting my head!! I had to leave practice to go ref a game so I got to do a little more running and some occasional sprints. Go me! It was warmer out than I thought so I was a little toasty in my sweats.

I'm not liking this eating thing. It's a good thing my rents are going out of town on Thursday for a week. You know what that means?? No eating dinner for me. :) Yay. I'll eat something if I'm hungry but I don't have to eat if I don't want to. I guess that's how it will be when I live in NYC. Kind of funny how last week this was concerning me and now it's not a concern at all. I'm sort of looking forward to it. Hmm, weird how that happens. I don't really get.


I think I'm too tired to write anymore. Tomorrow is Halloween!! Yay! I'm dressing up when I go into the office!

"Charrrrles"


Jen sent me this "Grow a Pirate." She's named in "Charrrrles" to go with "Argh." It's gross to touch, I must say. Um, thanks for sending thoooooose.
He's a stud, huh?

If...

I was a "normal" person, I'd eat something right now because I am hungry and I ate dinner at 4 PM. Oh well.

(I just had a couple of soy crisps and a couple of pretzels. Guess that makes me normal now)

Treadmill time

I need to start running more frequently and longer distances now that I've been cleared to do so. I've been running only like twice a week so I need to pick that up to about 4 times a week. My legs are huge and I know it's because I haven't been running. While I was getting my massage yesterday, I kept thinking (while she was doing my legs) ugh, she must be so grossed out by how big my legs are. I know I am. I want my legs to be stick thin. My sister has skinny legs and I have big ones. I hate it. I can feel it in my jeans. They're bigger and they need to get smaller. So treadmill, here I come!!! I feel as though my head is completely fine for me to just push it to the limit now.

Sneaky cat!

My cat decided, Saturday night after she ate and hid under the bed so I couldn't put her lampshade back on, that she didn't want her stitches in anymore. So, she apparently did a little surgery on herself. No word yet if she had any help from her brother. She did, however, leave 2 stitches for the doctor to take out today. Yay! That night, after feelings of guilt filled her head, I awoke to find her sleeping on my stomach. Two questions: 1.) How did I end up sleeping on my back?? I never sleep on my back. 2.) How did I not feel her come on me?? Hmm, maybe because she only weighs 8 lbs.

My sock is wet

I stepped in water and my sock is wet. My right arm is pulsating too, not sure what that's about.

Got a massage this morning. Had a gift certificate that my bro and his wife had given me last Christmas. It felt good. She worked on the knot in my calf. It's been there for two weeks and now it feels worse. Ha!

I woke up yesterday stressing about my finances and how they will be lacking when I move. That's going to freak me out. Seriously, I will be bringing in NO money with my bills and stuff. I really need to find a teaching job and maybe rake in an extra 100 bucks a month. That would also get me a free gym membership, which would be very sweet.

I had other things I wanted to write about but now I can't remember what they were. Oh well, maybe later it will come back to me.

Moving concerns

I don't really know what I want to write about but I know I have a lot to write about. This is probably stuff I should be writing in my FFJ but I hate having to write things twice and I really want to just type so maybe I'll print this out for the Charmeister.

I talked to Charro today. I saw her on Tuesday and we discussed talking today when I left. I called her on Wed. to let her know that I wanted to talk to her today. So, we had a phone SESSION. (Even she can't say that word with a straight face anymore because she knows how I feel about it.) (My eye is twitching). So, she called and I said "I actually have things to talk about today." We covered two of those things in the first 5 minutes; my possible apartment and the crazy search on Tuesday and the concerns that I have about moving. (Okay, I just realized that if I'm going to print this out for her I should take out some stuff b/c she doesn't really need to read about herself, though whatever, it's nothing bad.) Anyway, then we talked about the crazy dream I had the other night. Those were the 3 things I needed to discuss.

Now onto my thoughts since then...

Moving - (I'll probably jump around a lot here) I can't wait to move and yes, I do have so mixed feelings about it but that's normal. I am worried that I might end up not eating. I mean, I'll still eat, but I'm afraid that I will go there, not really eat, and then drop weight. A couple pounds is okay, but I'm afraid that I'll lose more than a couple of pounds (not even on purpose) and end up getting sick. I guess in the back of my mind I really do have the fear that I could end up IP or something and that is the last thing I want. That scares the shit out of me! (shiites, I just remembered I left out a huge part of my dream for charro. I totally forgot about it.) I would die (not literally) if I ended up needing to go IP. That would suck more than anything. I would hate it. I really don't know what I'd do if that happened. I hope I never find out either. Honestly, that is NOT what I want. I want to be healthy, I just don't know how.

I know that I'll get there and not want to cook because it will just be me who I'm cooking for. What does that mean? Well, probably that I'll just end up nibbling on a few things and not eating meals. Lots of times I don't even know what I want to eat so I just don't eat. I know it's a problem but I don't know what to do about it. Lots of times I just end up "grazing" (I'm really sick of that word!) because I don't know what I want.

I don't know if there is a part of me that wants to lose weight or not. I can't figure that out. I know I don't want to gain weight. I know I won't be upset if I lose weight, but I don't want to get the looks that I give (not really give) the anorexic women I see walking down the streets of NY...and there are A LOT of them. I guess it's pretty easy to be disordered there. I also don't want to be sickly and miserable when I should be having the time of my life in a great city. I guess I know that I don't want to end up that way but I also don't know if I really can prevent that from happening. Of course I can prevent it if I really, really want to, but I don't really want to change anything right now. That would require me to eat a lot and I don't want to do that. I flat out told Charro today that I didn't want to change my eating. (I thought I was going to get fired again for that one). I can't lie to her though. That wouldn't be very productive. I guess I'm just really confused and torn. I don't want to end up sick, but I don't want to gain weight either. I guess it will be really interesting to see what happens. I don't want to mess up my life.


(Okay, it's now Sat. AM b/c I didn't have time to finish that yesterday).

I was standing in my bathroom brushing my teeth this morning and I thought 98 lbs is too little for me to weigh. (I don't weigh that). I don't know where that thought came from. I did weigh less today than I have as of late, which did get my a bit excited, so maybe that's where that thought came from. It's such a freaking one minute to the next time thing. One second you feel one way and the next you feel completely the opposite. I really don't get it.

I just got back from the grocery store and I usually love going there but today I felt a bit anxious. I bought some healthy things, egg whites, veggies, etc. but I was buying them and thinking that I'm wasting my money buying them because I don't really want to eat them. If I have them then I have to cook them and eat them and I'm not really in to the whole eating thing lately. Over the past few months I haven't even felt like cooking or baking, something I usually love doing. My guess is it's because I don't want to eat it. A part of it is that I'm also not around a lot because of field hockey, which is why I haven't been to the grocery store very much lately. I used to go a few times a week.

I don't know. I've just been putting my brain on overload lately and I have so many conflicting thoughts; I don't want to eat because I'm not hungry but I know I need to eat, but I don't want to gain weight...etc.

So that's that. I guess I'll shut up now...until later.

Playin' with fire(balls)

She found a fireball in my room and was playing with it. Clearly, my room is NOT the cleanest thing in the world. I need to work on that, especially if I'm moving. Where the hell am I going to keep all my crap in a studio?? Ugh...

Hopefully this video will show up...if not, the post really makes no sense.

videoPS. I was not talking to myself. I was talking to Jen.

The never ending dream

I had another crazy dream last night. It was a LONG one too. I'd wake up and then fall back to sleep and continue the dream. Why is it that when you're having a really good dream and you wake up and try to continue it, you can't?

Without further adieu, here it is...minus some parts, lots of parts, that don't matter.

I got invited to go play field hockey with my college team down in Texas. I was going to get to see Jen while I was there too. Well, (this is the very abbreviated version here) I didn't make my flight and I didn't make it to Texas. Next thing I knew, my parents had taken me to a rehab center. I was not happy to be there, to say the least, but remained pretty quiet about it.

I was in the shower there, in the middle of the facility, and the lady was standing right outside of the glass doors watching me. I finally told her to leave because I was getting pissed. I finished shaving my left armpit (my right one remained unshaven) and I opened the door and threw my pink razor out at my rents and the staff and yelled "this is fucking ridiculous!!" They took me out of the shower and I ran into my friend Slu from high school. Quickly told her what was going on and then I went to call my coach to tell her that I wasn't going to make the game. I called her and she said "you're plane is delayed? I knew it." I said "No, I'm in rehab." We talked for a few minutes and then hung up. I then realized that I could sign myself out so I signed the 72 and then I woke up.

Ugh, I left a lot out of that, but that's the gist of it.

I think my dumb appetite is back, which sucks. I like not eating better!!!

Gym conversation

I walked by my friend S. at the gym and get this comment; "You can tell it's field hockey season."

Me - "Why?"

S. - "Because you're dropping weight."

Me - (in all honesty) No, it's the shorts. Everytime I wear these shorts people tell me that I've lost weight.

S. - "You should wear those shorts everyday." (jokingly)

Now S. was hospitalized a few times for her anorexia back in our high school days. I'm sure she knows something's up, but whatever.

Actually, I should wear these shorts everyday, however they are like 10 years old and have no elasticity left so if I run or jump in them they fall down.

And breathe...

Okay, I don't even know where to start. I'm so exhausted right now.

Yesterday, wait a minute, I don't remember yesterday. I think I went to the office. J. called to find out where he should stay when he goes to NYC this weekend. I went to practice and to our pasta dinner. At the dinner a couple of the girls said, "You're eating!! I've never seen you eat before." Um, I do eat. One mom said, "she doesn't look like she eats." Okay, new topic please.
So I rushed out of there, came home and changed my clothes and went to catch a train. I got into the city around 9.

This morning I woke up around 6:15 and got ready for my appointment with Charro in her new office. I ran there. It was the first time I've run outside since August 20th (2 days after my concussion that I didn't know I had, which is why I was running outside that day). My heart rate was crazy high, 185. I didn't think I was running all that fast and I didn't feel winded but apparently something was up (besides my heart rate). Could just be that I'm out of shape, which is highly possible since I haven't been running. I walked a few times to bring it down but then it shot right back up again.

I got to Charro 30 minutes early so I stretched in the park and then called Jen and got some water too. I met up with Charro on the street (not planned) and we walked in. She showed me her new digs...not bad. NO couch that, which really bugs me as I hate sitting face to face with people when I'm trying to talk. For the record, I SUCK at talking!!!! About 15 minutes into our SESSION the power went out. Ha!!! It was kind of nice. We got to sit there in the dark, though she did light a candle, not that it did much. Good thing there were windows in this office because there aren't in her old one. It was still pretty dark in there though. I told her that she's going to have to turn the lights out everytime I am there.

I was a little confused, more with myself, when I walked out of there. I was trying to figure out our next appointment and I was like "am I talking to you on Friday?" and we were both trying to figure it out. Finally I was like "Can I let you know?" and she was like "Yeah. Are you okay?" (because I was out of it or something.)

So then, I booked it to the subway and had to pee like a race horse, got on the subway, booked it back to my friend's place, peed, and left to meet with the broker; which I was 5 minutes late for. At this point it was 9:35 and I needed to be on an 11 AM train to come home. That did not happen. We walked around and he showed me a few apartments. We got to one that I loved, though I didn't see the actually apartment that I'd be getting. So, we went back and I filled out the paperwork. Then I had to run to the ATM and take out 500 bucks for a deposit and the stupid machine wouldn't let me do that (my mom just said SHOOOOOOOT), so I finally got my money, but had to get less than that. Luckily I had money in my wallet so I had enough to give the man. (I think I'm falling asleep). I ran back and gave him the money, did the other things I had to do, (It's now after 11. I clearly missed my train) ran back to my friend's place to get my stuff, grabbed a cab at 11:40 AM and got the the train station at 12 PM for my 12:07 train. (Sigh). I did have time to get a salad to bring on the train with me, which I didn't even want. I think I'm sick of salads.

I was hungry but not hungry at the same time. I haven't really had an appetite for the past month. I'm wondering if it's concussion related or I've just gotten to the point where I have actually lost my appetite. Even when I'm hungry I can't figure out what it is that I want to eat. I don't really crave anything. Like right now, it's dinner time and I'm not hungry at all. This all leads to another post I need to write about what will happen when I move to NYC. Hmm, that's later or tomorrow.

So, this concludes my long-ass post for the day. I don't know if I got the apartment yet. I have to do all the paperwork.

Maybe, perhaps

I think I got an apartment in NYC today.

I'll write more later when I get a chance. It's been a whirlwind of a day.

Sunday sunset





Today was a nice day. I woke up and went to the gym. I ran and I didn't get dizzy, which is a plus because I was dizzy for the past four days. I don't really know what that's about. Well, concussion related I'm sure.

I went to watch my field hockey team play (college). Saw my coach. She runs hot and cold so you never know what you're going to get when you see her. The team won, so that was a good thing and when I said hello she gave me a great big hug. She actually seemed excited to see me. People who know here would know what I mean.

I came home and laid out for a bit. Then I went to my cousins for dinner, which usually stresses me out because of all the food, but I didn't eat a lot, only had some pasta, so things went well. I did weigh myself at her place before and after my meal which probably is a no no but I did it.

I left her place and went to watch the sunset and now here I am. It was beautiful.

I forgot this

Okay, so I told Charro that I am moving to NYC and she asked the obvious question; "How do you think your eating will be when you move?" Then she proceeded to say something that ended with this, "...your anorexia." (I can't remember what she said before that. Maybe, how will this affect...) Um, I almost fell out of my car because I don't have "anorexia." Hearing that was really, really, really weird. I honestly do not see myself, or think of myself as being "anorexic." For some reason, hearing the word "anorexia" is worse than hearing "anorexic." I don't know why, maybe because it sounds like such a disease. (Okay, I know that it is, but you know what I mean). It sounds so medical and bad.

My little Toots

Here are a couple pics of my baby. This is of her wound, obvi. My nephew said "how come her butt is next to her leg?" HA!

Here she is drugged out on my bed with her poor little lampshade on.

Here she is, snug as a bug in a rug, on my clothes in a bin in the kitchen.

How cute is she??

I had Charro this morning. Nothing too exciting happened. I mentioned that I am running to her office on Tuesday and she said "oh, this is the first I heard of this." Well, it's not like it's any big news or anything. I'll be going to her new office, which I have yet to go to. Should be interesting. I told her that I'm bummed that she doesn't have a couch. Her response, "For most people the couch is a good thing, but for you, I think you need to be face to face so you can't hide." Um, I don't like that idea so much. "I think that will be helpful." Again, not so much.

So...Charro on Tuesday at 8 AM in the NEW office...with NO couch :(

A big one

My big chapstick and my Squish sleeping on a box of my summer clothes.

My BIG chapstick!


I need to wake her up and give her her meds but she's sleeping so soundly.

(My hand looks fat)

Stinkers

You know what sucks???

Having to eat dinner when you're not even hungry because people are watching you and they'll make comments.

I don't want to eat. I'm not hungry. Ugh, that stinks!

My head is spinning

My head is spinning today and I'm not sure why. I didn't even run this morning. This post concussion crap sucks, but I guess it could be worse.

My little on is sitting on the couch with her lampshade on. Poor thing. I want to take it off but the minute I do, she starts licking her cut. She's trying to lick herself right now but she's just licking the lampshade. How sad is that?!

I'm going to the outlets with my sister. I need to get some short workout sweats to wear when I run to Charro's office next week. I keep debating between shorts and sweats, but all my sweats are way too long and drag along the ground, so I don't want that. I just can't figure out if I'm going to be cold or not. I don't want to be cold but I don't want to sweat my pelotas off either. Hmm, I keep checking the weather to see what it's going to be like at 6:30 in the morning when I head to her office. I have to allow for "getting lost" time and "street traffic". It's only 5 miles but it will take me much longer when I factor in those to items plus the fact that I haven't been running so I'm so much slower now. Maybe my nervous energy will kick in. Let's just hope I don't end up dizzy when I get to her. That wouldn't look too good. I'll probably end up wearing shorts. I just need to find an outfit that makes me look skinny. (is that wrong?)

It's absolutely beautiful out today. It's much warmer than it should be. I love it. The trees are changing color. Unfortunately I hate the season that follows fall. It's way too cold for me.

Okay, since I can't look at this screen anymore I will stop typing.

A good day

I had a good day today for two reasons. First, I got to pick up my Squish at the vet. She's drugged up but so lovable still. I had to go and get her a lampshade because they didn't give me one and she started licking her wound. Not a good thing. She's been sitting with me and purring the whole day. She's so sweet.

I talked to my boss about moving to NYC and still working for him and he said that was okay. Yay!! Now I'm working on finding a place to live, and getting closer...I think!!

That's all. I must attend to my baby.

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Good news, and then my rants

First the good news. Surgery went well for my baby! The doctor said he took out a lot of tissue/fat/muscle around the area where the mass was removed and that it all looked normal. Yay. Of course the lab will confirm that. He also said he was cautiously optimist. News I wanted to hear. Yay for my baby. I can't pick her up til tomorrow though. :( I miss her and so does Mr. Buggles. (male cat).

Now I need to talk about how much I hate food. Yes, I don't like it and I don't want to eat it. Okay, I like food, I just don't want to eat it. I ate three meals today and it sucked and I gained three fucking pounds. WTF? I can't deal with that. I hate eating. I really do. I don't want to do it anymore. I liked it so much better when I was away and not hungry and not eating. That's going to by my life in NYC. Well, I'll eat, but I won't have to which makes it much better. I love that I haven't had an appetite for the most part. I need it to stay that way. I hate gaining weight and I better lose 2 pounds before I go to bed tonight or I will be really mad. The good news, I can run, run, run on the treadmill tomorrow. YAY!!

Squish Mish

I brought my little Squish Mish to the vet this morning. She totally knew something was up when I wouldn't feed them this morning. It was so sad. She hid under my bed and looked at me with the don't do this to me again look. I wanted to cry.

I got her in the crate and she cried and and cried. I talked to her (not like she knew what I was saying) but I told her that I was doing this because I love her and I want her to be better. Then I thought to myself, I can take such great care of her and love her so much, why can't I do the same for myself? The same question I get from Charro a lot. She's (my cat) so sweet and innocent and I love her to death, I don't want to see her suffer. That must be exactly how my parents feel. Ugh...it's horrible. I can't be a mom and have to worry like that someday.

I guess I should shower so I can go talk to my boss about moving to NYC. Hopefully it will go well. Hopefully my little squishes surgery will go well and the day will be happy.

From the mouth of my nephew...

"Stop picking at it and eat it. I just eat the whole thing. You need to stop picking."

This from a 5 year old. No one even said anything to me, he was just watching me eat. I love that little bugger.


**I did eat what was on my plate, I just picked apart my chicken and a roll.**

What a freaking cutie he is. I love him!!!

Talk about awkward

J. just called. I haven't talked to him since we broke up. It was sort of weird to talk to him. He said something about going hiking sometime this week. Now that I think about it, I'm not really sure how he can do that since he broke a bone in his foot and has a bump shoulder.

So, even more evidence that he's not the guy for me. He's told me about his past and how he's gotten into a lot of fights, got stabbed in the leg (I saw the scare), etc. He said that was all behind him, but you know it never really is. So, when he just told me that he broke a bone in his foot I asked how. He said he got into a little fight with someone after the person took a swing at his friend. Not really cool. Not my kind of guy.

So, that's that.

Bertha made me happy this morning. I realize that I'm not eating enough. I see that, but on the other hand I don't really want to start eating more. I don't mind that I'm not eating much yet I know it's not good for me. I know if I eat I'll gain weight and I don't want that. It's not easy. Oh well.

A breather

I'm home...

My feet hurt but I'm home for a bit. I was in NYC for the weekend and had a blast, of course, but it's good to be home. I have lots of things to do, like unpack from this weekend and Vegas, do laundry, work, work out, coach, sleep, take care of my babies. My Squish is having her second surgery on Tuesday so I will be stressed about that and worried, of course. They're bringing in a specialist to do the surgery. I hear he's good but his personality/people skills suck. He said that the cancer is very aggressive and will most likely come back. So, keep those positive thoughts flowing that the surgery goes well and no cancer comes back!!

So, NYC was a blast. Did some apartment hunting, shopping and birthday celebrating. It was my friend G's b-day so we went to dinner and to karaoke and then to brunch today. Yes, we saw Will Farrell at brunch. That was pretty funny.

The meals went fine. I ate too much at lunch and was stuffed but I guess it was okay because I didn't really each much today. It was egg whites and veggies, so it's not like it was an unhealthy lunch. The scale didn't like it though. Hmm, it needs to go back down. Vegas treated me nicely weigh-wise.

Oh, I ran 6 miles yesterday and didn't feel dizzy or anything. YAY!! I will run again tomorrow. The only thing that sucked was my speed. I ran so much slower than I usually do, which really bugs me but part of me knows that I need to sort of ease back into this.

I called J. while I was in Vegas. I was bored so I called and left him a message. He called me back that night and left me a message. I called him back Friday night and left him a message but haven't heard back from him. He's been at a conference all weekend though. Things didn't end on a nasty note so I thought it would be nice to touch base with him.

So, that's pretty much it. I will hopefully go to bed soon so I can wake up and work my ass off at the gym!

Doctor's, Vegas and busy days

Wow, lots to write about right now and I don't know if I'll get it all done. First things first; I just got back from the doctor and she said that I can resume all regular activities, minus getting hit on the head, which means that I CAN RUN!!!! YES!!!! We have clearance, Clarence!! I asked her flat out if I could run and she said "Yes." She also said that there is no need for me to see a neurologist. She said that I have post concussion syndrome and that the symptoms can last 6 months to a year. Um hello, that's exactly what I've been telling everyone but no one seems to believe me when I say it!!

VEGAS

Vegas rocked!! I got back last night and am completely exhausted right now. I'll post some pics later on, when I get a chance. I saw the Beatles Cirque De Sole and it was absolutely unbelievable. I sat there with my mouth hanging open the entire time. I was so tired during it. It was my first day there and the show was at 10 PM (1 AM my time) so it was a long day. I loved it though. I just loved Vegas in general. I definitely want to go back.

Today has been a day of appointments. I got my hair done this morning, then had Charro, then had my doctor's appointment. When can I sleep?

Tomorrow I am heading into the city for my friend's b-day bash. Good times baby. Maybe I'll find an apartment while I'm there too, but I'm not holding my breath.

We're going out to dinner tomorrow before heading out for a night of fun. Sunday we're going out to brunch. Ugh, that's a lot of eating. I'm going to try to not be an eating disordered disaster this weekend because I don't want to ruin anyone's fun. Yes, it's going to suck having to eat two big meals but I'll make it work somehow. I just don't want to look like I'm freaking out after I've eaten. I just feel like it's going to be harder than usual because I spent all this week not really having to eat much. I know I'm going to be freaking out, I just don't want it to be obvious to anyone. I hope I do a good job of hiding it. It would be even better if I could just go out and eat like a normal person and NOT care. Meals shouldn't be so difficult and stressful. They really shouldn't. It just sucks. I really just want everyone else to have fun and not have anything be an issue. I just don't want to f up anyone's good time. I KNOW we will have a blast, dancing and singing. It will be fun and I'm looking forward to it.

I think I've extended the usage of my brain power for the day. I need to take a nap but my nephews are coming over so I guess that will have to wait. I may be back later.

At some point in time I will have to catch up with everyone else's blogs. I've been AWOL for the past week and probably will be through the weekend. I hope you're all well.

I had to do this everytime I walked through the casino or was getting on or off the monorail. I thought it was quite humorous!!

Vegas baby!


I'm having a blast!!! I'm exhausted but having a blast. I love it here. I have so much to write but don't want to take the time to do it now, so I won't. I probably won't remember what I want to write either but who cares, I'm in freaking Vegas!!

K, I have to go workout!

Flying high

I wrote this yesterday while I was on the plane. I have so much more to write about but I need to hit the pool. I LOVE VEGAS!!!!! Sleep? What's that???

I'm on the airplane, on my way to Vegas. I have no idea how I'm going to sit here for another 4 hours. I can't sit still long enough to watch a movie, never mind sitting in the same position for 5 plus hours. Fun stuff. I tried sleeping. I read a little and now I'm blogging. I'm thirsty but I don't want to drink my water because then I'll have to pee, which means disturbing the two people sitting next to me.

I was hoping I'd have something brilliant to write while I was on here but I don't. Oh well. Maybe I should FFJ. I don't want to take out my FFJ because the lady next to me might think I'm nuts so I will just FFJ on my computer and then print it out for good ole Charro.

I guess that's it for now. This won't be posted until I get into my hotel room. Ew, it smells like a bologna burb on this plane. I might throw up.

I think I have cramps too., That's a blast.

Okay, I'm done for now.

What day is it?

I'm so exhausted that I can't even compose a sentence. I woke up at 4:30 this morning because I was walking in a breast cancer walk. It was a marathon walk (26.2 miles) but I was only able to do a little more than half because I had to be at field hockey this afternoon. I walked 16 miles. I walked with my friend H. the whole time. We had some nice chats. Our friend J. kept up with us most of the time, but then fell behind.

After the walk I went to the store to get luggage then went to the office to get some more supplies for Vegas. My boss forgot a ton of stuff so I had to go get it and am now carrying a bag of crap which weighs about 40 lbs, no exaggeration! I got there and I was exhausted (sleepy exhausted) and hungry. I just wanted to go home. Well, my keys didn't work because he had changed the locks so I had to call another girl in to open the office for me. Ugh! My feet were pretty achy and tired at this point too, by the way, but it was for a good cause.

I got home and was SO tired and hungry, but more tired than hungry. I fell asleep outside for a few minutes and then jumped in the pool. Swimming in October here is unheard of. Our pool is usually closed by now.

I ate and showered and went to my game and did some other stuff. Now I'm sweating, trying to pack, and trying to download music onto my MP3, which has not been successful because I can't remember how to do it.

I am SOOOO tired. I just need to go to bed.

I was pretty dizzy yesterday, and a little bit today too. I made a doctor's appointment so Charro can't fire me again.

Okay, now I need to figure out my music so I can go to bed.

Charro...after the "firing"

My phone SESSION with Charro went well today, surprisingly. I guess we had a lot to talk about. J., being "fired," my crazy dreams, going away, hating the location of her new office. It made for a fast 50 minutes. She wants me to eat more while I'm in Vegas. Okay, if I do eat more, it's not going to be because I want to. I'm going to freak not having my scale around, that's for sure.

Um, I'm trying to do a million things at once so I will continue this later.

This is my brain...

I just took the computerized test that our school gives athletes to test their brain pre and post concussion. Well, I never took the test before all of my head traumas, but I took it today. Now, I have no baseline to go by so who knows how my score today relates to what it might have been 18 months ago before getting three concussions. With that in mind, the results of my test weren't that great. I did great in some parts and completely crappy in others. What does that mean? I don't know, but the trainer printed the report out for me to take to the doctor when I go...some day.

It could just be that I am dumb and my results are exactly what they would have been 2 yrs ago. Who knows. I might go with that. ;) I guess I'll have to get re-tested to see how the score would compare to what I got today.

So, that's the story.

Wednesday and bored

It's going to be another nice day here. Steamy, for this time of year and I love it!!

I haven't had much of an appetite the lately, which is fine with me. My stomach's, or digestion rather, has been a little "not happy" yesterday and today. I wonder if I have a little something or something. I don't know. I feel fine so I don't really care. It's all good.

I haven't made a doctor's appointment yet. I've been putting it off because I don't really feel like I need to go. My head feels fine now so I don't see why I need to go. Seems sort of stupid to me. I guess I'm going to have to call at some point though. It's so ridiculous!!!

I have a game this afternoon and I don't feel like going. It's the team that's the farthest away and it's not until 4:30. We're usually done by then. Ugh. Plus we killed this team on Saturday and I hate that. I did everything I could to not run up the score anymore. I felt bad for the other team.

So, that's about it. Nothing exciting going on here.


UGH, my dad is eating popcorn and it's driving me INsane!! I HATE the way he eats!!!!!!!!!!

Keeping busy

Life's pretty busy these days, which is a good thing I guess. I've got a pretty packed schedule for the rest of the month, which includes a trip to Las Vegas on Sunday. I'm going for work, but it will still be a good time. I'm looking forward to lounging at the pool when I can.

J. emailed me a bunch of times last night. He said he can't stop thinking about me and he hopes this isn't the end of us. I feel good today. Yes, J. has some really great qualities but I just was not in love with him. The break up was a good thing. I do miss him a little, but not nearly as much as I should miss him if I truly loved him.

I haven't had much of an appetite lately. I'm not sure why but I'm also not complaining about it. I eat when I'm hungry, and sometimes I'm starving so I'll chow down. When I'm not hungry, I'll have a few bites of something because I know I should eat.

I've been thinking about Jen all day today. She checked in to IP today. I hope she sticks it out and does well. I can't imagine what it would be like to have to go there. I can't imagine what she must be feeling and going through. It makes me want to throw up just thinking about it. Ugh.

The rest of my week is so busy between work, field hockey and all these other engagements that I have. There will be no rest for the weary when I get home from Vegas either. I'll be exhausted but it will be fun!!

I should really go put my laundry away now.

Oh, I did some Christmas shopping today. I didn't plan on it but it happened, which is always a good thing. I stopped at BJ's on my way home from seeing a client and got some cool stuff. Yeah...a little of an accomplishment!

When it rains, it pours

So my day, or last few days...or past month has kind of sucked. Let's be honest here. I'll also be realistic and honest here when I say that I still have a good life. I can't complain. I have parents that love me and I have a roof over my head, a job, etc. I don't have much to complain about in that realm.

So, I just got an email from J., two actually. He doesn't have the Internet but he was at his parents house and emailed me. He wrote me a second time saying how he was waiting by the computer for me to email him back, and waiting for his phone to ring. Actually, this is what he said.

its me again. This is bad that i am waiting to here from u, but i have a feeling you are not going to call or write. Well if u get this i hope u have a good night and i would love to talk to you or write. i take anything at this point
Clearly, not the best punctuation or English in this email. What does he want from me? When things are done, they're done, in my eyes. Yes, I'm sad. I'm not devastated like one would be if they were in love. My heart is not broken. I emailed him back, in response to the first email he sent, but was still writing when I received that one. My guess is that he didn't get my response to him. So I'm sure he's wondering what's going on in my head and how I'm feeling and wanting to call me but won't. I won't call him either. We broke up so why should I call him? That was more of a hypothetical question. Yet, I am sitting here waiting to see if he will reply to my reply. Again, I bet he shut off the computer before mine got to him. Oh well.
Now onto my weekend events. I was in NYC Saturday and Sunday. Obvi my Friday with Charro sucked, as you know. I guess I'm really not fired since I am talking to her again on Friday. I totally see where she was coming from though and she's 100 percent correct. What can she do for me if I'm not willing to do anything for myself? I get that. I really do. Hearing her say all that sucked and I got pissed. I remained pissed for a couple days, but it happens. I'm sure she was testing me to see how I'd respond. I also hope she's not reading my blog, but I don't think she is. She's got better things to do with her life.

NY was good, minus getting my jacket stuck in the cab door. (That was actually really funny). G. and I were running around town like nuts going to open houses. We had an agenda and a time limit. It was nuts. Something else funny happened but I can't remember what it was. Oh well.
Karaoke was fun. (My email keeps freezing and it's pissing me off. Ugh). Now I've lost all train of thought so I guess I will stop writing. Blah! I have to get my clothes out of the dryer!!

Thanks for all your kind words!!

xoxo

First the firing...

Now, the breakup...

So, J. and I broke up a few minutes ago. I hadn't talked to him since Friday, but did call him and leave a message on Saturday, which he said he never got. (I do believe him).

I'm not going to play his games. He wants me to fight for him and chase him, and I'm not going to do that. So, it's over. That's it, and I have one of his sweatshirts. Of course, he still wants to be friends...
