Tuesday, October 5.

Today ... is not starting out right.
~ massive freaking migraine headache wakes me up at 6:00... I am totally out of medicine... I don't even have advil in the house.
~ by 7:00 I've used up stretching, and hot packs on my neck... and started rummaging for any kind of medicine... find some ASA tabs and pop a couple...
~ 7:30 find a two year out of date (best before...) imitrix (migraine medicine) and pop that...
~ get to my docs office at 9:00 because they can't renew scripts over the phone any more... most likely because they only get paid by the Canada Health Plan if I show up at the office... so why help out over the phone?
~ shoot a nasal injector at her office... (doctor sample) and boogie to work.
~ go through a massive frustration zone trying to phone home and dealing with a busy signal... this, of course, only happens when you start frustrated.

I am a donkey on the edge man....

Ok... and DIG THIS... my work lap top (the system I use for "corporate work") blue screening every time I log in... of course, this would happen today.

I swear... I need a DO OVER on today!!!

~ blue ftls
~ black kinda cargo pants
~ dk blue t with a black sweater (red stripe!)
~ ok... this day is just not working for me...
~ anything I plan... is just going to fuck up.
~ project work abounds and I have to have a TOC done by this afternoon.
~ home server (corto.ca) backup scheduled for tonight in anticipation of installing fedora
~ I didn't have a fucking headache... actually it's subsiding now... but it's being replaced by the numb thing that the migraine meds do to me...
~ to send some supportive vibes over to dinkydo
~ that the hot chocolate police don't drag alcestis away... but if they do... I'm hoping for video.
~ for better health to find it's way into the home of pixiecup...
~ I could shadow pro_jenny at her work place and bring the smack down on the next co-worker that tries to intimidate her...
~ to point out that designergirl is really quite a sweet heart... :)
~ and to hold a few random hopes kumi... gets herself centered today.

Ok... it's been about an hour since I started this...
(I write some of this... deal with work... read a bit of lj... then write some more and then repeat the process until I'm ... done.)
Headache is totally gone but I'm getting the weird tingles that the meds give me...
Frustration bubble has faded... got through the phone line to z and now I'm holding a fresh cup of coffee...
If only some geek would show up and fix my freaking computer I'd be able to get some work done.

Are you late?
Having trouble getting something cleaned up?
Is it hard to slot that thing into your busy schedule?
As you go through your day... look around.
When you see a woman with a one, two, three, or (gasp) four kids in tow...
and she's on time for a doctors appointment
or getting groceries, or doing anything...
Stop for a second and realize how seriously you need to be bitch slapped till you cry...
and suck it up, you have no excuses.

Ok... I'm going to work on the "do over" thing and try to find a new mood for the day.
see ya.

(no subject)

laptop... absolutely fried.
This sucks in ways that would make devine brown blush.

Time to read some docs and cross my fingers that they can recover the data from my "my docs" directory.

thank you...

When I graduated HS, I was working in a restaurant.
I moved up through the ranks of lowly kitchen help to senior lowly kitchen help.
The end of me was visible in the faces of other people working there...
So I left that job to go back to school. I went to a local college.

When I graduated from College,
I was headed for University to study for two more years and get a degree.

My summer job was this government gig working at a Student Placement Office (SPO)
It was a fun job... and it carried over as part time work in the school year with a made-in-the-shade job the next summer.
I was 24 when I started the first summer of work there.

During the second summer of work as a SPO, I fell in love.
She was on the other end of a phone and there was something about her voice.
I changed offices and was finally able to put a face to the voice.
She didn't realize I had fallen for her... at least not at first.

When she sat with me, and told me of the troubles her boy friend was giving her...
I rather coldly told her that he sucked... she should drop him... and she should go out with me instead.
That didn't really work... at least not at first. :D

On August 18 of that summer... I came to work wearing a cabana shirt... pulled from her closet.
She had dropped him.
I waited in the hall at work before coming in so people wouldn't see us come in together.

That job became my career when I graduated from University...
and I stayed with that government department for 14 years.

That girl became my life....
... and nothing will tear me away from her.

We spent four years deciding to get married.
I slipped a ring on her finger... kneeling in a rainy field.
It was a blustery day in the following October,
when her now dearly departed father handed her over to my care.

Thirteen years have since crept past and brought us two small pieces of heaven...
George, born in 1995 and Edward, in 1998.

We have walked many challenging pathways...
and danced our way along some wonderful roads.
Life is like that...

October 5, 1991

We will travel many more roads together.
I love you my darling Suzanne.
Thank you sugar.
