My right eyelid has been twitching off and on for nearly a week now. I read on WebMD that it's something that I shouldn't be concerned about. Caffeine, stress and fatigue are all causes. Since my caffeine intake is limited to whatever tiny bit is found in chocolate, I'm fairly certain that's not the cause. Stress ... not quite through the roof, but work pisses me off. Just knowing I have to go back is causing my eyelid to twitch right now haha. Fatigue? Yeah, I have that all the time. Wonderful.

I need to schedule an appointment with an eye doctor soon anyway. If it hasn't gone away by the middle of next week, it'll quicken how soon I schedule the appointment. It's not affecting my vision at all; it's just merely annoying.

Work was fairly uneventful. I did get a bunch of calls, but I also had plenty of down time.

I put in a request for the 30th off and it was approved so that's awesome. That will be the 18th anniversary of my Dad's passing. I had a tough time with it last year at work so this year I wanted to take it off so that I can mourn at my own leisure. I wont' have to worry about putting on a game face to deal with the general public. It's hard enough when there's no major life event that occurred.

I'm thinking about getting a Friday the 13th tattoo this year. What should I get and where should I get it? I'll probably get it somewhere fairly discrete. It will be something small, but I think it would be fun. Basically, it'll be a quick, cheap fix. It's been 6 years since my last tattoo and I'm seeing all my friends get new ones and it's driving me crazy. When I go out to Vegas in December, I'll be getting my back fixed up {never go to an apprentice; always pay more to go to the professional} and getting the memorial done for my dad. I'm so looking forward to finally getting it done.

Anywho, I think I'm gonna read a bit before calling it a night.

Until tomorrow. . .

Mind over stomach
Wednesday. 6.5.13 7:39 pm
I need to stop eating so much. I've started eating simply because I want to, not because I'm hungry. It's usually never more than two or three times a day, but the hunger pangs just aren't there. I need to retrain myself to eat when I'm hungry. I think that's part of the weight gain problem I've been dealing with.

Like, right now, I really want to cook up an egg and cheese burrito, but I'm not hungry at all. I still feel completely full from the lunch I had at work. I'll hold off until sometime tomorrow. I may even just not eat at work and wait till I get home to eat the burrito I want to make now.

I started reading the 11th Hour, but I'm only a few chapters in. I have most of the train completed on the puzzle. There's a few pieces here and there still missing, but the sun has dipped behind the clouds so my eyes are crossing trying to search for pieces in the dim light. It's okay to read it because by the window it's still light enough, but the table isn't by the window, or the light, so I will continue my search tomorrow.

I am going to get up in the morning and shower before work, for once. I usually shower in the evening, between 5 and now, but with the temps getting close to the 80s the last couple days, it's just been too warm to take a shower. The hot water will heat up my place more than is comfortable, even with the windows open and the fan going. In the morning it'll be cool enough that a little steam won't do much harm. I've already set my alarm to 15 minutes earlier than normal just so that I'll have time.

So last night I went to bed super early. I was asleep before the sun went down. I don't even remember taking my glasses off, I was so tired. I woke up around 1 something, but was awake long enough to register that it was 1 something before falling back asleep. Then I woke up again sometime between 3:30 and 4, but dozed off again until my alarm went off.

Tomorrow is my Friday at work. My plan to be unproductive will probably be foiled due to the fact that whenever I want a slow, boring day, it never happens. So I guess we'll see how the day goes. No plans for my weekend. It's in between paydays and I have plenty of food still so I don't even have to go grocery shopping. I'll probably just read and work on my puzzle.

Until tomorrow. . .

Postponed
Tuesday. 6.4.13 6:13 pm
My running will have to be postponed. The shoes that I had ordered were too big. I went to the store to see if they had a smaller size and the half size smaller was still too big. The next size down I'll have to order online. Either my feet are shrinking or these shoes run big. Either way, I have to wait at least another week before I'll get my new pair. That will also give me the time to buy socks.

After we went to the mall, we stopped at Wing Wah Bistro for some pho. It was tasty and definitely satisfied the craving. Now I'm even more tired than before.

I'll probably be going to bed early tonight. Like, as soon as the sun dips behind the high rises Downtown. I have to stay awake for at least another two hours before that happens.

I worked a little more on the puzzle. I have most of the train done. Now to fill in the other pieces ... that are all pretty much the same color and design. It's a good challenge. I can also start reading 11th Hour, but I might be too tired to focus on the words on the pages.

Anywho, I think that's all I have for now. My brain is not wanting to cooperate much more. I keep having to hit the backspace button so I think that's my cue to stop for the day.

Until tomorrow. . .

Habit forming
Monday. 6.3.13 8:13 pm
Instead of this getting more and more difficult as time passes, I find it's becoming quite the opposite. When I told my sister this, she explained that it was probably because it has become a habit. I'm okay with that.

Typing up log entries every day, even if it's just something simple, bitchy, exciting, etc, I am having less of an issue finding things to say.

I did not get the 11th Hour started today, but that's okay. I always have tomorrow. I also did not get in any running or exercise today. The odds of me starting up tomorrow are about as high as the odds were today. I'm excited that I have new running shoes, but I'm also finding another excuse as to why I can't use them yet. It can be considered a valid point; I need socks that breathe. Especially with the weather getting warmer again.

I started working on the jigsaw puzzle again. I have a good chunk of the train done. The rest will be a nice challenge because it's all snowy type landscaping. So basically all the same colors.

Anywho, I'm gonna go work on that some more while the video I want to watch on YouTube finishes buffering. If I'm wanting to watch something in HD, I let it load all the way before I start watching it, because having it stop in the middle to buffer is rather annoying. I'll just wait the extra time.

Here's to *hopefully* having some motivation tomorrow.

Until then. . .

Two down, two to go
Sunday. 6.2.13 8:10 pm
I finished Zoo just now. It's an interesting theory that I'm sure could happen. If you're the type of person who likes suspense and is okay with descriptive gore, then I would highly recommend Zoo. In case anyone does actually want to read it, I will not be putting any details in here that could contain spoilers. Essentially, it's about animals that turn on humans, with humans being the only mammals not affected by this sudden outbreak of rage.

Now that I've finished Zoo, I can start on the other two books in the series I started reading again before Zoo: The Women's Murder Club series by James Patterson. 11th Hour is up next. I should be done with that before the end of the week. Then comes 12th of Never. After I'm finished with that? Who knows.

Tomorrow I get to break in my new running shoes. I'm back at the beginning again. I can't seem to get past the 4th week. I can repeat day 1 of the 5th week over and over, but I'm always too afraid to move on. I guess we'll see what happens this time around. Now that I have shoes designed for running, I may be more motivated than last time. Before, I was getting more and more sore and it turned out the shoes I thought were made for running, weren't. These that I have now are incredibly lightweight and have a lot of cushion on the sole. The only thing I'm missing now are socks, but I'll buy those sometime soon.

The high heel wedges that I have are awesome. They make me rather tall. As much as I like my height, every once in a while, I like feeling tall and these shoes definitely do the trick. Now I just have to figure out a time and place to wear them.

Anywho, I will probably be calling it a night here in the next hour or so. I don't want to start the new book tonight because I'm afraid I'll not be able to put it down. Stopping while I'm ahead, in this case, is a good idea.

Until tomorrow. . .

Hypersensitivity
Saturday. 6.1.13 4:45 pm
My friend finally text me shortly after noon yesterday and we went to Shilshole Beach in Ballard. We sat in the shade and played cards, but we weren't there for long. Hunger kind of took over and the quest for food was on. We stopped at this awesome sandwich place called Paseo Caribbean Restaurant. They have entrees there too, but they're kind of known for their sandwiches. Aside from way too many grilled onions, the sandwich was amazing. I'll have to make time to eventually go back.

Since it's a curb side type of place, they only have these long-ish wooden picnic tables outside. We were there for maybe 30-45 minutes and my face and arms got burned! Not badly, mind you, but there's definitely a red tint to the skin that had been exposed. I used to be able to go out and be in the sun for at least an hour before the sun started to affect my skin. Apparently now that I've lived here a while, my skin is becoming hypersensitive to the sun. I guess this means I'll be buying sun screen this year.

After we finished eating, we headed to the movie theater and saw After Earth. It's not horrible, but it's not great. I would suggest waiting until it comes out on DVD before seeing it. I also wouldn't recommend buying it either, it's not worth the money. I kind of wish we had seen the Great Gatsby instead, but he didn't seem interested in that option whatsoever. Oh well.

After the movie, I came home and hung out for the rest of the day. I was asleep before 10:30, but I had also been up since 7:30 and out since 9.

Today I got my laundry done then showered and drove up north to pick up my shoes. I also bought the two books I wanted to buy, grabbed a bite to eat and here I am back home. I have to go back to work tomorrow, but I need to make money somehow. Unless I {play and} win the lottery, money won't just magically appear.

Alright, I'm gonna go browse the web then finish Zoo before calling it a night. I'll start the 11th Hour tomorrow.

Until then. . .
