Old Habits Die Hard… like really, really, really bloody hard, if they die at all…

I've drifted away from the computer for a while trying to fix things (including said computer) and take a realistic look at things. "Trying" being the misnomer of that sentence, because the things I needed to do most of all were on my mind, and I might've tackled them a few minutes at a time... … Continue reading Old Habits Die Hard… like really, really, really bloody hard, if they die at all…

If “fast food withdrawal” is real, I’m sure I’ve been going through it this past week…

Before work this past Saturday, I sat down to what I decided was gonna be my last incredibly unhealthy meal out: eggs, hash browns, sausage and bacon, yummy pancakes (I REALLY wanted pancakes all last week, dunno why), OJ and weak-ass coffee that needed a bunch of sugar to make it palatable. This was the … Continue reading If “fast food withdrawal” is real, I’m sure I’ve been going through it this past week…

Blitz Q #170: Can you really get rid of psychosomatic symptoms long-term?

I was trying to figure out what's been wrong with me the past several days. Migraine here, nausea there, another crazy headache right now as I type this (mostly with my eyes closed to give my pain a break). My days haven't let me get much done because of it, and I've been annoyed. Things … Continue reading Blitz Q #170: Can you really get rid of psychosomatic symptoms long-term?

Trying to pull myself back up and get my head on straight…

Except for those anxious/exciting days when I was messing with my well system, that feeling of being mentally checked out hasn't budged. When it wasn't really dumb stuff or acts of nature working on me, I was just not there. Honestly, if you asked me what I'd done the past few days, I'd have a … Continue reading Trying to pull myself back up and get my head on straight…

Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

I'm stuck in a situation where I have to work open to close several days in a row. I've got two more (thankfully shorter) days of this to go, and the list of things that I should be doing is ever increasing. Storm violence led to a lack of sleep (which I'm itching to get … Continue reading Sometimes, you just have to let yourself be lazy.

Feels like it’s going to be weeks & weeks of Sundays (most of the time).

For those who've read here before, you know I generally HATE Sundays. I've hated them because of how some places just aren't open, or close so early, or open so late, and that hour between 2 and 3 just drags on forever. By the time you decide to go somewhere, everybody else has had the … Continue reading Feels like it’s going to be weeks & weeks of Sundays (most of the time).

When you finally get a break from the fight… & end up sick.

I guess this was the logical conclusion to running on nothing but junk food and caffeine for several days on end, working open to close four days in a row. I wasn't supposed to go back in until two this afternoon, but when I woke up this morning, I went from a slight bit of … Continue reading When you finally get a break from the fight… & end up sick.

Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

I should still be in bed dozing a while longer on my day off, waking up slowly. Instead, I'm sitting here at 6:30 a.m. with my first cup of coffee, trying to figure out how I could've oh-so thoroughly screwed up my week (and month by extension). I should be sitting out on the porch … Continue reading Haven’t had my head screwed on straight in over a week, & boy has it showed…

Waste of a Hot Sunday… a little of this and a lot of nothing.

Let's say my To-Do list for this week has totally gone by the wayside. I should be working on a bunch of stuff and getting my instruments in tune to play. Part of me blames a day-long headache for what's happened, and a lousy nap that barely took the edge off. Maybe it shouldn't be … Continue reading Waste of a Hot Sunday… a little of this and a lot of nothing.

Revolving Headaches lasting over a week–tension or something else?

I won't lie--I have a bad habit of over-preparing for things and overestimating how much I can actually get done. Realistic time assessment is something I've always struggled with. I spent most of September and October working 60-90 hours a week. November and early December I spent working at and/or driving to an alternate work-site … Continue reading Revolving Headaches lasting over a week–tension or something else?
