I’m feeling very Abstract Random this morning kids, bear with me…
Mom did get approved for her surgery, praise ceiling cat. The doc’s office didn’t call her back until almost 7 last night which was quite nerve wracking. Everything is good so tomorrow morning I’ll be getting up at the ass crack of dawn with her to head to the hospital. Her surgery is scheduled for 7am. Not sure if I’ll squeeze in time to post tomorrow or not.
Josh texted me just a few minutes ago to let me know that he won the “Top Flamingo” award at work. He works for a company that imports cheap novelty crap from overseas. This flamingo thing appears to be their version of “employee of the month.” He got a t-shirt with a big pink flamingo on it and a reserved parking spot right next to the building for an entire month. He’s quite excited about the parking spot.
His first class of the term starts tonight; I think it’s Print Reading. No idea if there’s a book or how late it will normally run yet. At least it’s just one night a week. I’m really looking forward to a little peace and quiet tonight. I need to figure out what I need to take with tomorrow while I’m waiting for Mom.
Today will be interesting. I’ve got a team meeting from 9 – 11 and then an appointment to help someone with the LMS from 11 – noon. I’m considering taking my lunch with to eat during the meeting. I’ve got some cheese sticks stashed over there so maybe I’ll be ok. I’m definitely taking some tea.
I’m really kind of disappointed – I bought 2 oz of 2 different kinds of tea from the fancy-schmancy place and neither of them is terribly good. They’re not bad, just not really worth what I paid for them – that 4 oz cost me almost as much as the 10 oz I got from the good tea shop. And this stuff doesn’t seem like it goes as far. I don’t know as I’d ever go there again.
While we were at the mall I stopped in at the Body Shop. I got myself some tea tree oil facial cleanser and some coconut body butter. I’m loving the cleanser. My pimples aren’t really clearing up yet, but my skin feels a whole lot better, and it doesn’t appear to be getting any worse. I’m still really not sure about the body butter. My legs are itching pretty bad and there’s bumps now, but I’m not sure if this is an allergic reaction to the butter or if this is my body’s way of telling me I let that skin get way too dry. I did a patch test on my inner arm last night and that skin still looks fine, so I’m not thinking it’s an allergy. I’ve looked at the list of ingredients several times now and none of the usual things that I react to are in it. Hard to say with my funky skin.
The mood is not too bad right now, and actually wasn’t too bad last night either. Josh and I had a pretty quiet evening together. We didn’t get around to having sex, but everything was going well enough that it really didn’t seem necessary. I slept really well (thanks to the Benadryl I think) and woke up feeling decent. If I can get through the rest of this week I should be in good shape. I’m really hoping tomorrow that I can get some good progress made on the gifts. I’m not sure how long we’ll be at the hospital, but I’d imagine we won’t be home until around dinner time.
