Treading water ... again
Saturday. 7.13.13 4:58 pm
I've spent a bit more money than I was planning on spending. . . A splurge at Target yesterday kind of did me in. Also the dinner with my friends that I covered didn't help either. I'm not getting very far on saving up money for my December trip. Hopefully I get a turn of the tide here soon. Or I just don't go shopping at Target or eat out any time in the near future.

I really should get on finding a second, part time, overnight type of job. Something simple and stupid that doesn't require much effort. Maybe a retail or grocery store shelf stock person. Overnight so that I won't have to deal with the general public. I get to deal with them often enough at my full time job. Anyone have any suggestions?

I got the bras and fan returned to the store and was able to find another bra set of two that actually fit more comfortably. At the moment, I'm kind of in between a 36 and 38. The 36 is a little too small around, but the cups fit nicely and the 38 fits around, but the cups are a little too big so I just went with the 36 since that's what I've been wearing for years now. Hopefully I can motivate myself enough to make use of the two new workout shirts I got and lose some of the fat that's causing the 36 to be a little too constricting.

The groceries I got today will also have to last me until the 26th. Which, if I portion everything appropriately, should be just fine. I have a habit of overeating food that tastes really good so I'll have to be very careful this time around.

The rest of today will be spent just kind of hanging out, catching up on shows on Hulu and hopefully staying cool. It's already warmed up 10 degrees inside, but more than 20 outside. It does help having shorter hair. I just have to figure out how I'm going to wear it to work. It's a tad too short for the bun that I always had it in. I'm sure I'll figure something out.

Until tomorrow. . .

Productivity!
Friday. 7.12.13 8:48 pm
So this is the list from yesterday. I've crossed out everything that I got completed. It's been a rather productive day for once.

1. Pay car/insurance, cell phone, credit card.
2. Register for Torchlight 5K.
3. Put gas in car.
4. Go to the bank.
5. Stop by Jasmine's.
6. Get car emissions tested.
7. Register car.
8. Go to Target, buy at least one new bra. **
9. Get hair cut with Meko.
10. Get oil changed.
11. Stop by AT&T to discuss new phone options. {This is optional ... if I remember to do this while I'm at Target, I will. If not, it can wait until another time.}
12. Go grocery shopping. {Also optional; I may put it off until Saturday.}
13. Set up monthly payments with Legal Shield.
14.

Since I didn't get to the bank inside the grocery store, I kept forgetting to go to the grocery store to get a money order for my credit card/debt payment. It's not due until the end of the month, and since I spent a little more than I was anticipating, it may wait until the next paycheck.

The oil change will also wait until the next paycheck because I'm only over by 50 miles so it won't be a big deal if I wait a couple more weeks. I won't be putting that much mileage on my vehicle. Hell, the last oil change was in November and I'm just now at the 3,750 mark.

I did get to Target and I bought a two-bra set, but will be returning them tomorrow. The wire went all the way across the bottom rather than up in the middle so it was just weirdly uncomfortable. That was the issue with buying the two pack was that I couldn't try them on in-store. I also bought a fan that I'll be returning. The air only blows out the side of the vent, not the middle. It's kind of a waste if I always need to keep the fan at a weird angle. The sleep pants and two dry-fit shirts I bought will be kept. Those are all really comfy.

I'll get my grocery shopping done while I'm out and about tomorrow afternoon. The laundry will get done in the morning when I wake up and once I get motivated to leave the house, I'll return the stuff to Target and get some food products.

My hair is cut super short. It's even shorter than last time. I donated about a foot or so to Locks of Love again. My head is a lot lighter from the lack of weight cased by the length of my hair. It'll be a lot easier to wash it and the dry time will be shorter by at least an hour. I will have to figure out a new way to wear it for work, though. It's not quite long enough to wear it in the bun that I put it up in. I'll spend a good part of tomorrow messing with it to see what works.

After the hair cut, my friends and I went out for dinner. We went to this place called the 8oz Burger Bar. It was probably the best burger I've ever eaten. The prices were reasonable and the wait wasn't too bad. If I have the chance and money to go back, I definitely will.

After a bit of wandering through R.E.I. we all headed home for the night. It was definitely a productive day. Sleep tonight should come easily.

Until tomorrow. . .

July 11
Thursday. 7.11.13 9:08 pm
Yes! Tomorrow is finally Friday. I've been waiting for this all week. My paycheck isn't quite as much as I thought... thanks to the Union dues being taken out. I can't complain too much; they've done some fighting for us recently and it got the client to take notice so it's actually kind of worth it this time. This time.

Alright, so that I don't forget anything, here's the list of things to do tomorrow {in no particular order}:
1. Pay car/insurance, cell phone, credit card.
2. Register for Torchlight 5K.
3. Put gas in car.
4. Go to the bank.
5. Stop by Jasmine's.
6. Get car emissions tested.
7. Register car.
8. Go to Target, buy at least one new bra.
9. Get hair cut with Meko.
10. Get oil changed.
11. Stop by AT&T to discuss new phone options. {This is optional ... if I remember to do this while I'm at Target, I will. If not, it can wait until another time.}
12. Go grocery shopping. {Also optional; I may put it off until Saturday.}
13. Set up monthly payments with Legal Shield.
14.

I'm leaving number 14 open in case I forgot something and need to add it. I'll be checking this in the morning so that I can write down a physical list and actually get things crossed off. If I try to remember to do all that stuff, I know I'll forget something. I even forgot to include some pretty basic stuff on this lest as I was writing it so you can imagine how much more I'll forget if I don't have this written down.

I took a late nap today and thus woke up late so my shower was later than I wanted it to be. It's not that big of a deal because I don't have to be in bed at any specific time, but I was hoping to shave my legs with the daylight. It's a little easier to see the hairs with natural light rather than the dull light from the overhead. That's okay, taking a shower is on the list of things to do tomorrow; it's just one of those things that is kind of for granted and doesn't need to be written down on a list.

I finished the jigsaw puzzle and put the picture up on Facebook. I never did get the demo derby pictures up ... I'm sure they'll make their way to Facebook eventually.

Alright, here's to tomorrow being one of the most productive days of the week/month/I don't remember the last time I had a day with that much productivity on the schedule. I'll write tomorrow about what I actually got accomplished.

Until then. . .

187?
Wednesday. 7.10.13 7:57 pm
This is either entry 187 or 188. . . I counted last night, but forgot the number that I stopped at. Oh well. I'll probably count again in a month or so.

Tomorrow is my Friday at work. As much as I look forward to that day every week, I am actually looking more forward to the actual Friday. That day will be filled with productivity! I have so many things I need to do that day and hopefully I'll get most of it done in the morning. I'll list off everything in tomorrow's entry.

The jigsaw puzzle didn't get finished today. There's quite a bit of cloud cover, which is more difficult to work in than sunlight, however, I'd rather have than cloud cover than blazing sun so no complaints there. I will be able to get the puzzle finished tomorrow, probably; the last 50-75 pieces. I have a lamp that I can use, but it's on the other side of the room and when I stand in front of the table, it blocks the light so it's kind of counterproductive.

Man, someone is brewing some coffee ... some really strong coffee if I can smell it in my room. I like the smell of coffee, just not the taste, so that's fine with me. Even if it wasn't fine, that probably still wouldn't matter.

Nothing really too interesting happened at work. A homeless guy decided he really needed to sleep inside the buildings, which is annoying when they keep coming back. I don't give a shit where you sleep, just don't do it on the campus while I'm on the clock.

There's a few more videos I want to watch on YouTube before I call it a night. I'll be getting up early tomorrow morning so that I can wash my hair before work. I want to wash it twice tomorrow so that it's super clean for Friday. I know it's better to wash it at night before you go to bed, but when it takes as long as it does for my hair to dry completely, it's a little too late at this point to wash it. Two hours from now it would still be pretty wet and I dunno about you, but sleeping on wet hair is rather uncomfortable.

Until tomorrow. . .

Up and down
Tuesday. 7.9.13 8:19 pm
The temperature can't make up it's mind whether it wants to be in the 70s or in the 80s. I'm not complaining too much because the last few times it's been in the low 80s and the fan on the lowest setting has pretty much kept me cool enough. On nights like this, however, I'll be sleeping with the fan on under just a sheet, rather than with a blanket.

I'm nearly done with the puzzle that I started working on about a week ago. There's maybe 100 pieces left, but the daylight is nearly gone so it's hurting my eyes trying to focus on the pieces. I'm down to the hardest part: all the people mixed in together. It's kind of like a Where's Waldo type of design, except there's no Waldo.

Depending on how much money I have on this coming paycheck and how much I have left over after I pay all my bills and get my vehicle registered and crap, I may get a new phone. I'm eligible for an upgrade, even though it's been less than two years. I've been with AT&T since 2007 so they like to give me early upgrades as an incentive to stay with them. Until I have a major issue with them, I'll keep signing new contracts. The first moment something gets screwed up, I'll be switching carriers. It'll cost me about $100 for the new phone, so it really depends on how much I have left over.

I can't wait until Friday. There will be 16 hours of overtime on the paycheck along with 8 hours of holiday pay. It'll definitely be a nice paycheck.

Today was fairly uneventful; just a lot of walking around, which is pretty much a majority of my job. A call here and there, a code every once in a while, some crazies, but nothing too major too often. Every once in a while something more serious will happen and everyone will talk about it for a while before it becomes old news.

After my stomach rejected what I put in it yesterday, it's been rather grumbly today. Luckily nothing was rejected so that's a plus. Hopefully I won't have to deal with that again for a while.

Anywho, I am going to watch some more videos on YouTube. Until Netflix gets season 3 of The Walking Dead, I'll pretty much be entertaining myself with YouTube videos. Hopefully they'll get it soon. I'm kind of getting sick of waiting.

Until tomorrow. . .

Yep
Monday. 7.8.13 5:09 pm
I'm having a harder time trying to think of different titles than I am thinking of content to write about. This challenge has become such a habit now, it's rather easy to come up with something type. However, titling the entry is becoming the challenge.

I laid down for sleep around 6 last night and I am pretty sure I was asleep by 6:05. I slept until about 10, fell back asleep around 11 and woke up again around 3:30. From then I dozed off an on until my alarm went off at 5. It felt good to get some sleep. I could have slept for another hour or two, but I had to get up for work. Three more days of waking up to an alarm . . . joy.

I'm contemplating going to bed early again tonight, although now that I've said that, it probably won't happen. Sunday and Monday are usually the most boring days of the week because there's nothing in my queue or really anything new updated from my subscriptions. During the rest of the week, stuff gets regularly updated and gives me something mindless to do to pass the time.

I didn't nap when I got home today, though, so I may actually be in bed before 10.

Tomorrow is Tuesday, the worst day of the week for my patrol order. I will never get over it. Or I'm already over it and I just like bitching. Yeah, the former is probably a more accurate statement.

I need to get more plastic bags. I'm running low; I may have to buy some from the store this weekend. Someone told me I can buy plastic grocery-style bags from the store for like $3. It's cheaper than driving out of the city to a store that still carries them. I will definitely be stocking up on plastic bags when I take my vacation in December.

Alright, I think I'm going to work on my puzzle some more. At least until I can't take looking at the pieces ... or my back hurts from standing up too long, which will probably happen first.

Until tomorrow. . .
