Seth and Karen

awake, sort of

Tried to post this before...I think the live journal client I have is screwy. Sometimes it posts just fine. Sometimes it posts multiple times, and sometimes it just won't connect to post my entry. So back to using the LiveJournal page online.
I'm tired and cranky. But I have the best sweetheart in the whole wide world. I'm only cranky because I'm tired. I had a monster migraine last night which pretty much put me down for the count. Aleve, Ultram, and finally two Tylenol #3 put me out of my misery. I still have all the after effects of the migraine: dizziness, blurry vision, and for the first time in a while my hearing seems distorted...it's been seeming that way since yesterday afternoon, and I'm positive it's thanks to the migraine. My head feels like if I move to quickly it might fall off, so I'm afraid that the migraine isn't all gone, it just hasn't woken up yet. What a way to start my birthday. And I DID take my medicine every night for the past week or so. So there!
Today I have a huge list of tasks at work and I'm really hoping that I can find an office to hole myself up in (I normally work in a cubicle), because I seriously can't accomplish anything where I am...people stop by and bother me for documents and supplies and information all day long. Plus, I'm right outside my manager's office, so people congregate there, which is nice, but LOUD. So yeah, if I want to get any writing done today, I'd better find an office. I guess I could go down to the second floor, now that I think about it.
Anyway, enough jabbering. I'm already late for work.
Hope everyone is doing well.

whistle while you work....

Well, so much for productivity today. I've been inundated with calls from the client, new documents to review, and meetings all day. Plus, I'm in the most high traffic area possible in our project area. Thank heavens we are moving downstairs in March. I made my manager promise me that he'd stick me in a quiet corner where no one could even find me once we move downstairs. Here's hoping.

I still have blurry vision and a tightness in my head, but I think the migraine has pretty much decided to go away soon. I hate talking about migraines all the time in my journal, but it's actually a good way to keep track of them anyway, I suppose. Fortunately, it's really subsided quite a bit.

A bunch of people on our project took me out to lunch for my birthday. That was really nice. The restaurant had a fabulous buffet with plenty of vegetarian options and a fabulous array of fresh fruit. And of course, the best part is that I didn't have to pay for it! :)

Dave, my activity lead on this project, left early... He was having serious pain in both of his shoulders but radiating down to his left arm. I hope he's okay...trying not to panic. I've got a pile of work sitting on my desk and I'm thinking about just leaving it here until tomorrow. But then I'd have to work longer tomorrow, and I don't want to do that! So...I'll keep my nose to the grindstone just a little longer...
