Zzzzz… oh, wait, not time for that yet! Actually, I had a little chat with a woman who works for the same institution that I do… she’s very into alternative medicine. She said that acupuncture helped her carpal tunnel sydrome, and that they’d probably also be able to figure out why I’m so tired, because it isn’t something that Western medicine can solve. You know what? At this point, notwithstanding the fact that I’m a natural skeptic, I’m willing to give it a shot. What’s the worst that will happen — I’ll be tired and my wrist will hurt? I’m already tired, and my wrist already hurts! And I’m sure you’re all tired of hearing me go on and on about it, so I’ll shut up on that topic now.
Semi-related to that, though, several people wondered why I have such a crazy doctor. It’s because I don’t usually go to the doctor, so in the intervals between visits, I forget just how truly insane he is. Yes, it’s convenient to use him because he’s right around the corner from my house; but for heaven’s sake, if I sit in his waiting room for three hours, I may as well travel somewhere further!
Nothing too exciting really happened today… I was going to stop off at Blockbuster on my way home. Generally, I go on a Sunday, watch the movie that day, and then return it the following Sunday. But I can’t do that now because I won’t be here a week from Sunday. (Wheeee!) But by the time I finished with all of my other “errands,” it was so late that I wouldn’t have had time to watch a movie… and I had a total brainstorm which involved getting the movie on Sunday and returning it on Friday. Duh. I am a genius.
So, this is what some of my abovementioned “errands” involved…
I bought some more fish! Three of the one on the left (hi fin black tetras) and two of the one on the right (albino rainbow sharks… is it just me, or is “albino rainbow” kind of an oxymoron?!). So far, they seem to be fine. *knock on wood*
I finished a box of cereal this morning, which means I get to buy another one!! Puffins were on sale at Whole Foods, so I decided to go for that… but doing so involved a decision, and you know how horrible I am with those… I couldn’t decide whether to get the original or cinnamon variety. In the past, I would have just given up and bought both of them, but nope, not going to do that anymore! (I got the original in the end, because if I want cinnamon before I actually get a chance to try the cinnamon variety, I can always add my own, hmmm?)
Oooh, and this is exciting. I found it — and it was more expensive than I would have liked — but the “best by” date wasn’t until April 2011, and it’s so hard to find, so I bought it anyway. Not going to start it yet, because I have to finish what I have! (I also found Mighty Maple — in another store, and that was REALLY too expensive. Hmph.)
I rarely (okay, never) do this, but I made a wrap consisting of something other than sprouts and hummus!
Mustard, spinach, beets (totally lifted that idea from Ruthie), and Lightlife bologna. ’twas pretty good, actually. But maybe a tad over-stuffed, you think?!
Another little adventure (oh, how sad my life can be)… Kashi Mighty Bites.
I proceeded to decapitate and dismember every single one of them. I must be a sadist.
Okay, a bit of verbal vomit, naturally. My mom called me at work today and asked me something about those plug-in air fresheners… namely, which scent to get. (The store she was in only had stinky ones, so the answer was none.) When I got home, there was a notebook on the table. Yes, I’ve been looking for a notebook — but why on earth did she pay that much money for it?! And it’s purple, which is slightly annoying because the one I have now is purple, so I won’t be able to tell the difference. Not a big deal — I can return / exchange it, right? No, because she didn’t take the receipt. Then I went upstairs into the bathroom, and she bought toothpaste. Crest toothpaste, which I prefer over Colgate… but it wasn’t the kind of Crest I like, and now I’m going to have to use it anyway, because everyone else prefers Colgate! I’m disproportiately annoyed, I know, because she WAS trying to do something nice for me… but for heavens’ sake, if she called me about the plug-in fresheners, why couldn’t she call me about this?? Or at least take a receipt. Sigh.
Also a potential rant — but one I will skip since my wrist isn’t too happy with all this typing — is the phone call with my nutritionist today. I called to tell her about my thyroid “issues,” which, by the way, have me really freaked out. But I can’t get into that now… I wish I could, but my wrist is yelling at me. Maybe it should join the choir in my head, because I’m suddenly really anxious about this weekend!! And my mom is taking me to lunch on Monday. Um, it’s Friday, why am I stressing myself out about Monday?! One day at a time… one. day. at. a. time.
Have a gorgeous weekend!
