Obligatory Happy Friday Post

Heeeeyo, happy Friday! Thank god for the weekend because if your week has been anything like mine and my other lady friends, it’s been trying to kill you.  Remember how I got three types of medicine for my diseased lungs?  Well, the one I’m supposed to take during the day for my coughing made me feel like I’d had 17 too many vodka and sodas.  Full on room spinning dizziness and nausea.  I was walking around work with my arms out to my sides to keep my balance.  It. Was.  AWFUL.

I got home and laid down to see if it helped, but nope, I forgot that laying down only increases the room spinning effect and brings on the “omg I’m going to vom everywhere feeling”.  Needless to say I have not taken the medicine since, simply been sticking to my codeine laden cough medicine and inhaler at night.  Fun stuff friends, fun stuff.

After work tonight, the roommates and I are hopping in the car and road tripping up to Long Island for one of our very best friend’s bridal showers!  I’m driving, which means I’ll need an afternoon coffee to keep me awake and alert for the 5 hour drive.  I told the roommates if they didn’t want to listen to the country station on Pandora the whole way that they better come prepared with playlists.

Dar is going to look at six houses today, so let’s keep our fingers crossed he likes one enough for us to put an offer on.  He has strict instructions that if he does like something enough I require extensive photos and video footage of the house.  One of the downfalls of me not being able to go look with him.  If he doesn’t like anything very much, we’ve pretty much decided to put an offer on one I did see.  So hopefully things go well this weekend!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!


Just a few brief things.

Thank you all for your well wishes and concerns about Pumpkin! I know some people don’t really like cats or pets in general for that matter, but she’s the first pet I’ve had that’s been mine and she’s been with me since college so I’m kinda obsessed with her.  The good news is that her urine test showed her kidney’s are still functioning, we just really need to keep them that way. So I’m thinking about trying one of those fountain water dishes for her, since she loves drinking from the sink.  I also mixed some tuna juice and water together and froze it, and gave her a cube this morning so we’ll see if she drinks that.

I finally went to a doctor last night, ok CVS Minute Clinic, and they said I have bronchitis.  Now I am fully loaded with 3 different prescriptions including a fun bronchial inhaler.  Apparently I should start to feel better in 2-3 days.  Somewhat worrisome though, is my blood pressure which was sky high at 144 over 90.  For someone who has a history of ridiculously though blood pressure, like 100 over 78, this is confusing.  I’m hoping it’s just the coughing and sickness that has driven it up, but I will be having it checked again when I start to feel better.

I wish I could work from home one day a week every week, it was awesome yesterday.

I had my performance review meeting this morning.  Apparently I’m bad at keeping eye contact with others when they talk to me.  Oops.  Although if that’s all people have to complain about, then I think I’m doing just fine.  I will gladly take my 8% bonus and 1.8% raise and work on my eye contact skills.

My head hurts, I’m blaming a combination of my coughing and high blood pressure.

Happy Leap Day! Real life is for March.  Hope you’re all wearing blue and yellow!
