stress

i pulled something in my back yesterday getting in the car at the dog park after work. it hurts to inhale all the way. i tried kneading it out but now it just feels like a big bruise. i brought my theracane to work to try to loosen up the muscles… prognosis: painful.

don’t be mad

i did some outdoor stuff yesterday… since i didn’t have online solitaire to occupy my time (the native windows one sux0rs), so i finally mowed the lawn… and composted what i could from the garden.
i have to say, i was much more excited about the beginning of the garden process than the middle and end; that’s almost exactly the opposite of how i approach work and road trips. i’d much prefer to be catapulted to the final result than sit in a car for two to four hours.
so, i won’t be canning any beefsteak tomatoes this year.

luddite

not having the internet makes me feel weird. i’ve been without it since thursday.
i have 474 unread articles in googlereader and 28 pages of tweets to catch up on.
and i have a lot of work to do today.

well

now we’re not going.
kurt missed a couple days of work this week, and i got behind on some bills somehow (like, they never came in the mail?). so, we’re broke(ish). and can’t afford the lavish milwaukee lifestyle to which we’ve become accustomed.
it’ll still be a nice 4-day weekend for me. i hope.

wishy washy!

ok, so now we’re going to stay one night and at a hotel closer to the airport (where they’re half what they are downtown).
i know you were on the edge of your seat with wonder.

erm.. nvm. :/

so, at some point, the travel industry decided that a crappy room with crappy carpeting and a crappy bed with some crappy pressed particle board furniture was worth at least $200 a night. everywhere.
we won’t be staying in milwaukee.
i even checked the concourse, just to see “what if we wanted to stay downtown in madison?” nope. not that weekend.

mini vacation

trying. to. plan.
we’re gunna stay a couple nights in milwaukee and the hotel that Kurt wants to stay in doesn’t appear to exist anymore?
and we’re going to try to get together with my cousin to at least grab a bite, if not check out her home.
i’ll try to remember to take pics.

a hefty weekend

taking fridays off is almost my favorite thing. and i have four more between now and the end of the year (not including the ones they already have scheduled).
the willy street fair was exceptionally warm and claustrophobic. we went down, walked to the other end, got a falafel, ate, and walked back to ingersoll and left.
now, i’ve got a case of the mondays.

grump

i didn’t sleep very well last night.. i woke up around 3:45 and thought, “that’s ok. i don’t have to be up for three hours…” and i tossed and turned until about 5:20 when i started having really weird dreams which kept waking me up until the alarm went off.
i also appear to have contracted The Office Cold™. i’ve been sneezing all morning and the right side of my throat just started getting itchy before lunch. i’m hoping it’s just the chilly nights/mornings and nothing more.
