Found the Culprit

Had around twenty ounces of lemonade on top of my usual drinks and no strange brain fog. Though apparently my snappy mouth is back according to my coworkers "You should watch how you talk to people" *Eyeroll* EVERYBODY gets a little snap to their voice when they are interrupted right in the middle of counting and I don't have a sugar voice. And if I was supposed to say "please" for something I consider can wait until I'm done *eyeroll again*

That'll be my self-righteous tendency baring its head. I will be on this job for 10 years come May with the same coworkers. But I have no idea how long it will take for them to decide that is a personality quirk that isn't going away and they can stop lecturing me about it.

Back to the topic I wanted to deal with: no strange brain fog last night. So keep water on the desk to sip throughout the day is back on the must do list. I slept better last night after washing dishes. So I don't know if the old tale "Never go to bed with a dirty sink" is true or if the combination of steam and dish soap makes me sleepy. *shrug* Now to figure out where I stand on the Big Rocks.

Work Big Rocks
  • Financial paperwork is planning the budget for this paycheck and March.
  • FFGarret posts: counts as website hour: need to write one and edit the other and post.
  • Challenge Fanmix: counts as website hour: need to write entry and post for after contest
  • BMFM: Turbo: counts as writing hour: email former beta readers since I fell off the radar
  • Tin Man: Kink: counts as writing hour: editing
  • Zy's Novel: counts as writing hour: add background material to wiki
  • Strix: counts as writing hour: add background material to wiki

Home Big Rocks
  • The inbox: I have divided it into financial paperwork and everything else. And the financial paperwork is the smaller pile! It's not often I get to say that. I need to buckle down and concentrate on just the inbox until I find the bottom.
  • Back bedroom: seal the leak
  • Phone: Set up the new voicemail
  • Taxes: DO THEM!
  • Tin Man: Dragons & Memories: counts as writing hour: need to link to Ref. Wiki and depends on Ref. Wiki moving online
  • Tin Man/Alice: Making Whole: counts as writing hour - make title banner and other illustrations
  • Tin Man: Pirates: counts as writing hour: editing is waiting on beta reader
  • Circulation Desk Dev.: counts as website hour: upload changes to Prod. Site (i.e. getting Ref. Wiki online) and a massive headache because of issues. Find the duplicate entry and see if I can connect MySQL Workbench to the server
  • Library Dev.: counts as website hour: upload pages once links to Ref. Wiki are fixed
  • FFGarret Dev.: counts as website hour: fix CSS--find out why the Zen-created theme doesn't show up on the local server and start it on the prod. site if need be
  • Challenge Fanmix: counts as website hour: make cover art
  • Challenge Icons: counts as website hour: make them.

That makes things much clearer. Depending on "what do i want to work on" has had me dwelling on the stuff I can only do at home, which is aggravating when I have things to do while I'm at work.

I know you're dealing with metabolic syndrome. I found out that I probably have insulin resistance, inherited from my father who has full blow metabolic syndrome now. Anyway, from what I understand water helps to clear sugar out.

Oh, BTW, I'm having another reduction in a week. Yes, you read that right. I injured my shoulders again last year and they're not going to completely heal until I get the weight off that's compressing them. At least this time the surgery will be covered by insurance.

*HUGS* Insurance good. :)

In this case, I think I was operating more dehydrated than anything else. I wasn't thirsty but I didn't need to go to the bathroom either.

Well, I found out recently the UHC only pays $200 for preventative care in a 3 year period. I found this out *after* being charged for a papsmear. But paying the $10,000 for surgery will make for that :)

You're frighteningly organised.

I don't look at it as "organized" as much as "self-defense against my chaotic mental make-up."

And UGH on the surprise bill. i got one of those too. Apparently, my doctor is out of network so they only pay 70%. Okay, I can accept that but why do I just now get a bill for my first visits back in 2007?
