Manic Monday...

on November 16, 2009 - 7:49pm

"It's just another manic Monday... Oh, I wish it were a Sunday. Cause, that's my fun day..."

Work today was hectic. Over 200 checks processed and ready for pick-up. Phones ringing off the hook - "Has anything arrived yet?" (the checks). Stolen large, flat screen TV (mounted high on wall)... Meeting w/ security company. Midterm week begins. EAB (Education Approval Board)... Arrived for accessment.

Could the day be any worse?

Wigirl for Hire???

on November 14, 2009 - 9:25am

Hmmm... Maybe. I've been "volunteered" for so many projects lately, I might as well go into business --- lol!

- End of last July, I was volunteered to help clean my grandfather's house & purge. House wasn't cleaned (vacuumed, dusted, etc.) in appx. 5 years (when my grandfather fired his cleaning lady). Cleaned out 50+ years of junk (tossing and saving valuables), and deep cleaned. It's now November and the house is finally ready to be lived in.

- With my aunt moving into my grandfather's house (Mon before Thanksgiving), I was volunteered to help her pack and move. Oh, and add cleaning the apartment to the list as well.

- With my dad being gone, I was recently volunteered to help sort and box up his things.

- Lastly with a friend's neighbor cleaning out his house (he's 97), I was volunteered to help take boxes to St. Vincent DePaul.

*** Sure I love volunteering my time, but all these projects at once can get a bit over-whelming. Oh, well they definitely keep me occupied.

Just wish I spend more time working on the next few chapters of my story. :)

It's already 1:41 am. I just can't sleep (no matter how hard I try). Ever since my dad passed I've been nothing but a walking insomniac; getting only about 3-4 of sleep a night (if I'm lucky).

My dad's passing was expected as he was terminally ill, and it's a blessing because he's no longer suffering. So, what's going on?

I've tried pretty much everything to put me to sleep... Listening to soft music, reading, watching mindless infomercials on TV, and drinking warm milk (totally gross). I even tried starting to write chapter of my FanFic story -- Nothing's worked! I refuse to use pills, so I'm at a loss as to what to do.

I know my body is eventually going to crash due to lack of sleep... Let's just hope it's on a Saturday or Sunday so I can catch up on the sleep I so desparately need.

For some reason when the old FOJG site was up and running, the mailing address I listed in my profile (my actual home address) was automatically changed to my work address when I ordered something from the store awhile back.

** Because I live in an apartment, I have all packages sent to my work, but not actual mail (i.e. letters, postcards, etc).

Anyways, I didn't realize this until I received my FOJG postcard in the mail at work --- Not once, but twice. No big deal, except that I work at a university.

So, I thought it was time to change the address back to my home mailing address. How difficult can this be??

Proved more difficult than I thought. Not being able to find the section for updating home addresses, I e-mailed the support team. In less than 24 hours, I received a reply (which was great); but unfortunately after following the directions provided, I still wasn't able to find the appropriate section. The links, tabs, and sub-headings only lead to section for updating e-mail address, changing username and password.

What a day...

on November 11, 2009 - 7:00pm

What a day today was...

2nd day back at work since the funeral. Worked an 11 hour day because the university had an Open House tonight (from 5-8). By the time I left (after clean-up) it was already 8:30.

So, what did I accomplish today? Almost nothing since we spent the majority of the afternoon setting up for the Open House. Oh, well. At least I finished mailing out the inquiry packets from yesterday (25 total) and making copies for the Biology of HIV/AIDS class on Thursday night.

And here I sit worn out after what seemed to be the never-ending day. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll get more accomplished.

Oh... Is it Friday yet???
