I lay quiet
Waiting for her voice to say
“Some things you lose,
and some things you just give away”*
I accidentally bought a caffeine-free diet Pepsi today. Which… once I’d realised it, I was rather disappointed. I don’t like the new bottles and logos. They confuse me when I’m in a hurry.
Last week was a lil rough around the edges. We’re extremely short-staffed at work right now – down to the point where we’re operating at almost 50% capacity with a 50% increase in work load. Which basically translates to my covering nearly everything outside of two specialties. Which has lead to an increase in stress-level… about 10-fold.
Needless to say… I’ve been a little short-tempered and a little out-of-control in my binge eating. I know I should work on getting back on track, but I know that I cannot handle that right now with everything else. So I’m trying to just take it one day at a time and keep it (mostly) together.
Last week… one of the low-points was my own dumb luck. It had been a rough day to start with. And on the way home I stumbled down the last two steps of the subway stairs. Wrenched my shoulder, whacked my arm off the floor, but didn’t hit the ground. Good, right? Sure. Except when I got to the other subway station, I was on my way up the stairs when I got shoved from behind. Landing face first on the stairs. Lovely. I’m still debating on whether I need to go get my arm checked out – the joints in my one wrist are all crackly. I know I should get it looked at, and I’m really just being stubborn about it, but I really really don’t want a cast before Vancouver.
Keiran and I’s trip to BC is coming up. And we’ve got a plan now! There’s still details to be worked out, but we’ve got a plan!
I’m in the mood to do some shopping. I’m wanting to buy all these expensive toys… I’d like a new camera. I want a Wii. And games to go with the Wii. The camera… that’s going to be something I have to look into. The wii… will wait.
Watch me lose her
It’s almost like losing myself
Give her my soul
and let them take somebody else*
Jake wanted to add something as well
