Today didn't feel quite as rushed as I was afraid it would, but I still wish I had another day to sleep in. That's the only downfall to working overtime on my day off.

I stayed in bed until around 9. I was awake a handful of times before then, but I refused to get out of bed that early. I got my laundry done, took a shower, put my clothes away, did the dishes and headed up north to get some gas.

I had $1 off per gallon rewards with Safeway that I needed to use and use them I did. It felt pretty good filling up my tank for under $30. I also have a full stock of groceries in my place. Something that I haven't had in a while. All that shopping I did has multiple rewards to go with it.

After I got home, I baked up some French's Fried Onion crispy chicken. It came out rather tasty. I also put together a couple simple turkey wraps. All that's on them is turkey and chive and onion cream cheese. I used regular and spinach tortillas. It's a good finger snack. I will probably be making more of them tomorrow. I'm kind of cooked out for now. Oh, I also cooked up a pasta salad. I ate some of it. The rest I will probably take to work with me tomorrow.

Anywho, I am going to continue reading while I still have the natural light. Once the sun goes down, I will probably go to bed. I'm definitely not looking forward to working tomorrow. At least it's Sunday. The day should {hopefully} be fairly laid back. Then Monday is a holiday so that will also be a fairly simple day. After that I'll have three days to get through before the weekend again! I already can't wait.

Until tomorrow. . .

Way too early
Friday. 5.24.13 8:23 pm
Waking up to an alarm to get ready for work on your day off is never how anyone wants to spend the first day of their weekend, but that's how I started mine.

I woke up at 5 with my alarm, hit the 15 minute snooze, woke up at the 5:15 alarm and reset another alarm to go off at 5:25. I didn't really care if I had to sort of rush to get dressed. I really didn't want to get out of bed. The first, probably, three hours of my shift I was just dragging. I don't normally get up until between 8 and 9 on Friday so my brain was questioning why it was having to function earlier than that. My body was also mad that we were wearing the rather uncomfortable uniform instead of pajamas.

I started to 'wake up' sometime around 9ish, but only just. My pace quickened to the normal speed and my eyes were fully open, rather than the half open they had been, but my brain and body were still questioning my decision to work this overtime. My wallet will be thanking me next payday, though.

Most of the shift went well. We had a situation in the Labor and Delivery section of our campus, but if anything happened with it, it happened after the shift was over so as long as it's been resolved by Sunday, I honestly don't care.

I came home after work, changed and went back out. I wanted to continue grocery shopping and get the things that I didn't have the money for on my previous shopping trip {I finally got my sick pay that I had been shorted on the last check.} Because of the awesomeness that is the Safeway App, I quickly earned some reward points for gas and now I have enough to get $1 per gallon so that's awesome, considering gas is at, or above, $4/gallon again.

The problem with working overtime on my days off, besides not being able to sleep in, is that with the one day left that I have, I feel rushed. I hate feeling rushed. Even if I know that all I have to do is laundry, having only one day in between work weeks just isn't enough to reset the system. Which is honestly why I would prefer working a 16 hour shift on a normal work day than sacrifice a day off. Oh well. Overtime is overtime. It really doesn't matter the form in which it comes in.

Alrighty, I'll probably be up for at least another hour or so. My unexpected 3 hour nap that I just woke up from at 8 has left me groggy. I could totally have just gone back to sleep without even thinking twice about it, but I wanted to come on here and update for the day.

Until tomorrow NuTang. . .

Opposite ends
Thursday. 5.23.13 7:40 pm
A couple weeks ago, Seattle was super hot, broke records for that day and was tied for the hottest major city in the US. Yesterday, Seattle was cold, broke a record low for the day and was briefly tied with Portland, OR for the coldest major city in the contiguous 48 states. Welcome to a Seattle spring.

It wasn't nearly as sunny as it was supposed to be today, which I'm okay with, but it was a bit warmer today than yesterday. This will be the second night in a row that I'll be sleeping with all my windows shut. It's spring time so I'm going to try avoiding turning my heat on, unless it gets super cold. Leaving them shut at night and open during the day seems to be a good combo for now. Soon enough, however, the windows will be open all the time and the fan will be going.

This isn't going to be very long. I want to read some before I go to bed and I also want to go to bed early since I picked up an extra shift tomorrow. It sucks not being able to sleep in on your day off, but I could use the extra money.

Actually, I think that's it for today. Depending on how busy work is tomorrow the entry might be longer.

Until then . . .

Slight spontaneity
Wednesday. 5.22.13 7:26 pm
Hi guys. I did something spontaneous today. It was a little something, nothing major. But it was a first for me.

I made my first ever shoe purchase online.

This may not seem like a huge deal to you, but it is for me. See, I hate buying shoes. Like, really hate buying shoes. I've worn the same kind of shoes for like 6 years now. Before that I just wore the off-brand version of the shoes I wear now. I've owned two pairs of high heels. Each of which I had worn twice, for about an hour each time. Even my mom hated taking me shoe shopping because it was such an unpleasant experience. The one time she brings up was back in early high school, she took me to 7 different stores looking for a pair and I ended up buying a pair back at the first store we had stopped at. After that, mom said she would just give me money and I could go myself.

Second reason why this is a huge deal is because I so rarely buy wearing-type things online {ie: shoes, clothes, jewelry.} I'm the type of person who would rather see it in person and try it on before buying it. I have such a lack of a sense of style that I'm always afraid something won't look good on me so I would rather just err on the safe, boring side.

So I bought two pairs of shoes from the Payless website: These and these . I also want to buy these or these when the store calls me to let me know my order had arrived. I really want to get out of wearing plain, flat simple shoes so that's why I'm going with heels. I also need a new running shoe because the old pair, I realize now, isn't made for running which would explain why my feet hurt after using them too much.

Anywho, I picked up an extra shift on Friday. I'll be working the day shift so I'll still have my Friday afternoon to myself. I just won't be able to sleep in. The extra money will be nice, though. It will be on the rent check so that'll be helpful.

That's about all I have for today.

Until tomorrow. . .

Spring time shivers
Tuesday. 5.21.13 7:11 pm
A cold front moved through today and the high for the day was only 59. It was really nice waking up to the rain, though.

I'm leaving two of my windows cracked tonight in hopes that it won't cause it to be too cold. If so then I suppose I'll just close one of the windows.

I just spent the last hour or so playing Don't Starve. The last round I made it to day 31 before I was killed. I'm nearing that mark now so hopefully I'll be able to get past it this time around. I feel like I'm more prepared, but I guess I'll find out when the time comes.

Because of this, my hands have been exposed and they are now freezing. Trying to type when your fingers are nearly numb from the cold is not an easy feat. However, I seem to be managing just fine.

I had a dream last night that I was in a wheelchair and I needed to find my car somewhere in the parking lot outside of my work {dream work, not actual work.} The way I got around was to motion my arms like I was swimming and it worked fairly well. This action has occurred more than once in my dreams as a way of getting around.

After searching for it, I couldn't seem to find it anywhere so I went inside and asked one of the contractors to help me find it. The problem was that the place I had him looking was in with the washers/stove combos. The model of my car was Nissan, which is what I actually own, but it was found in the form of one of these washer/stove type thing. I then got up out of my wheelchair thing and headed on my way.

I get to this home where my sister and I were living. My nephew was with us. We were in the process of renovating the home; it was a two-story home, around 1200sqft. The flooring needed to be replaced in all rooms and the entire place needed a new coat of paint. While this was happening, we were staying with a friend of mine, whose house looked the same on the outside, but was different on the inside. The kitchen had been turned in to an extended living space. The master bedroom was now the kitchen and the office was the master bedroom.

I have no idea what caused this dream to happen, but it was definitely different. I wonder if I'll dream like that again tonight.

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Only two more days of work. I am so looking forward to the weekend again.

Until tomorrow. . .

Oh sweet... wait, what?
Monday. 5.20.13 8:05 pm
So I'm seriously considering going on a two week vacation the during the first couple weeks of December and I was checking out prices for flights online earlier today. The prices were way awesome! Round trip for under $200. Sweet! I can totally afford that. Not at the current moment, but after another paycheck or two, I can totally buy the plane tickets! Now to add a car rental so that I'll have a way to get around. . .

An ADDITIONAL $800?!?!?!?! WTF?!

Fuck that shit.

So I go to the Enterprise Rental Car website and check out prices and they are around half that. Which makes a lot more sense for only TWO WEEKS of rental time. $800+ is way too much for two weeks. Maybe it's because I'd be picking it up from the airport? Who the fuck knows. I'll have someone pick me up from the airport and take me to a rental car place. If it's better to reserve it online then so be it, but I'm sure as hell not going to go through a flight booking site.

This is all still quite a ways away, but it's good to know approximately how much money I'll need to work on saving up.

Anywho, that's all I've got for today. Tomorrow is Tuesday, which is typically the busiest day of the week for me. We'll see how it goes.

Until then. . .
