Wish it was already Friday. Trying to stay motivated to get some clean up work done before this baby comes! I am walking a lot now that the baby is full term and it feels great to get more exercise in again. Plus tired dogs are happy dogs.

Chalk me up to the "wish it was Friday" camp. I could NOT sleep last night so I am exhausted today. I signed up for this 4 week program with Meb, who is one of my fave American elite runners. Today was day 1 so I pumped myself up to go for a run at lunch. The endorphins have worn off and now I'm crashing, lol. Half marathon training starts in 6 weeks so working on getting a good base built.
I'm getting sick/fighting something. Ugh. But I'm still at work!
I went speed dating on Saturday. My friend and I each got two matches from it! I'm excited about one of the men I matched with, because I figured every woman probably wrote him down. We'll see if anything comes of it. I'm also getting inundated with messages on Match. Not really, but kinda. I can't complain, though.
Work has been good but busy so far this week. Much better than the slowness of last week!

doglove, that's so exciting!! And yes, at least one. For my last half, I trained with my local run store. I decided to train with them again as I had a great experience the first time around. They are targeting the Ithaca Half Marathon. It's small but Ithaca is gorgeous so it should be a pretty race.
I'm so tired and just don't feel like I ever get solid rest. I don't think it helped the last couple of weeks have been so wonky with days on/off. I'm working from home most of today because I just can't get it up for going to the office lol. I'm starting to panic about my upcoming trip...what to pack? How will I entertain myself on that long of trip?
I am doing a lot of babysitting at work and running other people's shit instead of my own, and am learning that i am needing either a promotion at this company at the end of the fiscal year when that kind of thing is reviewed, or i need another job. I've been doing similar things for 10 years and just can't do it anymore. I'm worth more. It's time to be an hr manager so i don't go crazy.
gault liking your post because of you saying you deserve more.
Last night at work was tough. My new partner came over from another station. Last night I'm in the middle of an assessment and he pushes me towards the car and tells me we have to go. There was a shooting with people at his old station, luckily none of them were hurt (and no one died). I could feel him freaking out the whole way there. The call where this happened is the kind of call I'm supposed to go to. I should've been going to this call, except that we were on something else. Still processing my feelings, I know that me being there likely wouldn't have changed the outcome. I'll probably edit/delete details later.
I'm sick and have been since NYE. I went to urgent care on Sunday because I just didn't want to listen to my mom keep bugging me to go. I knew that it was viral and the doctor confirmed that but wrote me a prescription for an antibiotic just in case. He said only take it if I'm still the same by Thursday or Friday or if I spike a fever. I don't feel better necessarily but I can tell the cold is moving along. When I was at urgent care my blood pressure was high. The technician said it could just be from all the medications. Now I'm all worried though and researching ways to lower blood pressure. I'm getting old!
Thank you kaneen. Are you taking Sudafed/pseudoephedrine? I know that can raise blood pressure and that phenylephrine is the alternative (it's in the cold medicines made for people with high blood pressure). But yeah, getting older is no fun, we have to start thinking about all kinds of things with our bodies that just worked when we were younger.
Man, I like my new job, but I have the “drinking from a firehose” feeling from trying to absorb as much information as I can. I’m exhausted at the end of each day (but I’m sleeping! For real sleeping until my alarm sounds each morning!).
I also just sent in my visa application for a work trip to China this spring. So just before my 3 wedding in 30 days craziness, I’ll kick off my travel with a week or two in China and get home about 2 days before my BFFs wedding. I’ve already told her to put someone in charge of brewing me coffee for the weekend, lol.

tiramisu, that’s scary stuff, glad no one got hurt. mags, hope your dad is doing better, lots of positive vibes your way. I have a busy couple of week and I’m ready for it to be next Friday...working full time these two weeks (I normally only work 24 hours a week) to make up for vacation time that I took last week and will be taking in 2 weeks. Leaving for Paris on the 18th and really looking forward to it. Couple of days of a conference and the rest of the time I get to do whatever. Will get to see my aunt and if everything goes according to plan my FWB. We will see each other regardless of GF status because I like him regardless of benefits or not but hoping for no GF 😜😈. But I’m happy to see him even if he won’t be able to scratch my itch. Will likely do a fair amount of shopping as well. Hoping the metro will be sort of aback to normal at that point. My kid will be off with her dad for a week hence my decision to go somewhere myself. Biggest drawback of working full days is that I can’t get my daily walks in as it is dark when I get home. I have a home exercise program but I prefer being outside and walking/running. I also finally picked up a tennis racket again after 1.5 years of not having hit and it was so nice. Just did the bal machine but got a good work out in. Of course I decided to do 2 days I a row right away and ignore the fact I hadn’t played for so long so got some blisters. Guess it was a good reminder to slow it down it but and ease back into it (last time I tore my calf muscle playing with the FWB after I hadn’t played for about 12 years. I sometimes forget I’m 47 now and can just hop back into it like I’m 20. This getting thing is for the birds 😂😂
Baby’s coming soon, saw the doctor this morning and I basically have no measurable cervix and am already 3cm dilated. She said she might see me this weekend. I need to get the dogs bathed and house vacuumed ! Excited to see who this baby will be! 😬😬😬😬😬😬😬
doglove, I hope you have a textbook labor and that your dogs are washed before you start.
I'm tired today - went to our company Holiday party last night and am trying to motivate today. I have to finish two things for work, then get all three kids packed and ready for a ski trip/race for the weekend and then drive 3+ hours tonight to the hotel. Should be a day. Need to motivate.
