Pity yo-yo?
Tuesday. 11.26.13 9:36 pm
I'm supposed to be getting a sweatshirt as a reward for achieving a goal that was given to me {you may remember from, like, a month ago when I was given a credit challenge that I don't think my manager believed I could win and I won} and it hasn't arrived yet. He said that I am still getting one, but it takes time depending on when it was ordered. I asked if I would be getting it before I left and when he said no, I kind of felt bummed and told him I was hoping to bring it with me. I think I pouted or sounded bummed enough that he went in the back and got me a yo-yo ... I know it's not the same {not even close,} but at least I got something...? I think he gave it to me out of pity. Either way, I'm still pretty bummed that I won't be able to get the sweatshirt in time to take it with me.

If work was as crazy tomorrow as it was tonight, then I'm definitely not looking forward to tomorrow. It's the day before Thanksgiving and with Sam's Club closed, people will definitely be in there for last minute shopping. At least when it's busy, the time goes by quickly.

Alright, nothing else of consequence occurred that I feel needs to be typed about. Here's to hoping that tomorrow goes by quickly and smoothly.

Until then. . .

I really have nothing to update on. Work was work ... at both jobs. Nothing too crazy, but not as slow as I prefer it to be when I'm not feeling well. I guess it's better than super busy.

I'm really wishing that I could wake up tomorrow and instantly feel better, but this stupid cough and cold sore won't go away overnight so I'm stuck with them until they decide to leave me on their own. I'm just really hoping to be over everything by the time I leave.

My week is as follows: tomorrow and Wednesday - both jobs, Thursday - one job and dinner with my friend's in-laws, Friday - errands {it's payday} and relaxing, possibly packing, Saturday - one job and laundry, possibly packing, Sunday - one job and definitely packing, Monday - both jobs and last minute shit and a nap. Tuesday next week - vacation!

Until tomorrow. . .

One week, one day.
Sunday. 11.24.13 8:11 pm
I leave next week, guys. I've been counting down since June and the fact that I can now say I'm down to my final week, it feels kind of surreal. I'd probably be more excited if I wasn't sick.

On top of being sick, I'm now getting a cold sore forming on my lip. Fan-fucking-tastic. Hopefully the Blistex that I'm using will help make it heal faster. I don't want to have to deal with them in the first place, but I really don't want to go on vacation with one. It's not exactly an attractive look.

I didn't get any Tylenol PM, but that's okay. I didn't really have an issue sleeping last night and I'm hoping that I'll sleep okay tonight as well. I'll make sure not to push myself too hard tomorrow and with the shift at Sam's only being 4 1/2 hours, I should be okay. I'll just have to keep water with me and ensure that I keep hydrated and sanitized. I only have to work both jobs 3 days this week so as long as I can push through, I'll be fine. Thanksgiving will be an easy shift to work since the clinics will be closed and I'll have a day and a half off before going back in for an 8 hour shift at Sam's on Saturday. If I'm careful, I should be back up to at least 75% by then.

Alright, I think I'm going to try to finish the book my friend let me borrow: Hyperbole and a Half. It's pretty amusing. If you haven't heard of it, check out the website. There's a lot more to explore there. The book has some extras along with some classics. After that I'll probably get to bed early again and hopefully get some sleep.

Until tomorrow. . .

Worth it
Saturday. 11.23.13 5:05 pm
I called off Sam's in person yesterday. I knew that they wouldn't be able to hear me over the phone and I knew that I would be in that area anyway, so I stopped in and told my manager that I wouldn't be in for my shift today.

I picked my friend up from her work and we stopped in at Sam's. I saw that my manager was standing at the podium so at least I wouldn't have to talk to anyone else. One of the other managers came up and I waved, then in barely above a whisper explained that I couldn't talk. He laughed at my failed effort to speak, but wished me well before walking away. My manager joked that since I work in a hospital, I should be able to access the good stuff, but I explained that nothing would work to get my voice back in time to work my shift. I apologized and thanked him for his help. My friend agrees that he's adorable and is a pretty funny guy.

After we left Sam's, we stopped at Marshall's and I was able to buy a suitcase. My packing cubes have been ordered and shipped and should be arriving some time Monday or Tuesday. I'm down to the final stretch and it's becoming even more surreal that it's actually happening. I've been counting down for so long now that I'll probably have to be on the plane before I realize that this is actually happening.

When we got back to her place, she fixed me up some tea that had lemon, ginger and honey in it. I'm not sure if it did anything to help, but it tasted nasty so I'm glad I only had one mug. She fixed up some dinner and we watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Netfilx. I'd never seen it before so that became the choice movie. I can now say that I've seen the movie. I'm not sure if I'm ready to deal with the chaos that ensues during a theater/stage production of it.

I got home last night and took the two Tylenol PMs that she gave me and I ended up sleeping for 10 hours straight. I woke up to use the bathroom around 9:30 and went back to bed and slept until sometime after noon. I finally got up around 1 and began my day of relaxing and laundry. If simply doing laundry exhausted me like it did, there's no way I would have been able to work a full 8 hour shift as a cashier. It would have made it much worse. With having a couple days of rest, I might actually be better enough to be able to fully enjoy my trip.

Alright, I have one more episode of season 3 of The Walking Dead and then an episode of Bones to watch on Hulu and I think I'll call it a night after that. I want to make sure I get a decent amount of sleep before work tomorrow. I'll probably get my own supply of Tylenol PM before I come home tomorrow so that I can at least have it for tomorrow night. Then Monday-Wednesday I have both jobs. Hopefully resting tomorrow will be enough to make me okay to work all those shifts.

Until tomorrow. . .

I need gloves
Friday. 11.22.13 11:07 am
It is currently 58 degrees inside my apartment. It is 40 outside. I am currently wearing sweatpants, fuzzy socks, a long-sleeve shirt, a jacket and 4 blankets covering me. Most of me is fairly warm, but my hand are frozen.

I've lost my voice thanks to this sore throat and I slept horribly last night because one, I was suffering a sore throat that made me feel like I was choking and two, because it was freezing in here. They said the earliest someone will be out to fix the heater is today between 1 and 3, but I have a feeling that won't happen.

Since most of my Sam's job entails speaking to people, I will most likely be calling off work tomorrow since I don't have a voice. I can't sell stuff if I can't talk. I really hate calling off, but that's one of those jobs that would most definitely make me worse because I can't exactly take it easy when it's super busy and there's a lot of heavy lifting/moving around. It'll be a hit on the paycheck, but that's a hit I'm willing to take for my well being.

I want to take a nap, but my throat won't let me get comfortable long enough to fall asleep. Perhaps later I'll be so tired that it won't matter much.

Until tomorrow. . .

I knew it was too good to be true. Everyone around me has had some kind of cold, but I remained safe ... until now. I woke up with a sore throat this morning and it has only gotten worse as the day has continued on. I keep feeling like there's a dry spot in my throat and it's making me tear up, almost like I'm choking. It's going to make sleeping tonight rather uncomfortable.

Also, my heater broke. Again. I'm prepared tonight, however, because I'm already wearing my rubber duckie onesie that I bought a year ago for a party. It's keeping me warm for now. I have an extra blanket that I bought recently for another party and I also have fuzzy socks and some longer sleep pants to wear instead of shorts. I let the property manager know as soon as I discovered the heater wasn't working and she said the earliest they can come out to fix it is tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully this shit gets taken care of a lot faster than the last time, when I had to wait just over a week before it was fixed. Looks like I'll be taking a lot of hot showers until I have working heat again.

I guess if I have to be sick and shit has to break, it's good that it's happening now instead of right before I leave for my trip. I'd rather be sick here and get over it than be sick while I'm there and not be able to enjoy anything. Hopefully this is just a sore throat and it passes within a couple days.

Depending on how I'm feeling, I may just end up spending the day indoors just relaxing and hydrating. I was supposed to hang out with a friend in the afternoon, but that may not happen now. I guess we'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .
