Monday Was Just a Write-Off

What to do when you have nothing (or not much) to do?  That’s my current dilemma.  I’m in limbo as I expected and really wish I had a huge project to work on, but right now, that’s not the case.  So as I sit in my new office location – at my new wobbly desk – with my new phone that no one can figure out, I try to find things to do.
Obviously, we’ve moved into our new office location.  We’re in the other building and boy oh boy is it warm and humid.  I actually brought a fan in with me to help with the stifling heat that almost took me out yesterday.  No lie.  It is just sickening in here.
Yesterday was a really rough day for me.  I woke up sicker than I’ve been at all – so miserable I didn’t make it into work until about 9:30AM….it took me three hours to feel like I could actually take a shower and get ready – driving was a joy.
Here are some fun highlights of my day Monday:
1.       Woke up gagging.
2.       Got to work about 2 hours after my co-workers to move into our new cubicles.
3.       Found out my desk shakes when I type – so my monitor gives me the motion sickness gags.
4.       I walked with some friends over to our old building to have lunch in the 95 degree weather.   As soon as I entered the old building, my heel broke off of my favorite shoes.  They’re toast.
5.       I heated my lunch, sat down to eat and gagged.  Closed lunch and sat for a minute with the group and then had to leave because the smells of their lunches was too much.
6.       I walked back to the new building solo.  Water was more than I could handle yesterday.
7.       I limped the rest of the day.
8.       I had a cup of Corn Chex and popcorn to eat all day - that’s it.
9.       I spilled my ice coffee from Starbucks all over the back of my car when I went to leave work.
10.   Went to the chiropractor (yay Dr. Matt) – that was a highlight – but my back and neck were so bad I had to lie on ice for about 30 minutes.  Ouch.
Don’t get me wrong, there were some highlights to yesterday – the chiropractor helped me immensely.  I feel better – slept well last night and had yoga with my friend K.  She calmed me down the rest of the way after a really crappy day.  Yay YogaMe!!
Today, I’m equipped with my fan, my psi wristbands, a calmer stomach and a hope that this will turn out to be a great week!
Happy Tuesday Ya’ll!


  1. I'm sure you know this, but you may have to take zofran or something like it to get through this time. SOme women end up losing too much weight or being hospitalized for dehydration. Little sips, little bites here and there will win the day. Maybe try some mint- tic tacs or something? Mint iced tea? I don't know, good luck!!

    The part about your new office SUCKS big. I feel like they are treating you like second class citizens! Where is the air conditioning? Maybe the new guys need to know of your medical condition... you need to stay healthy and cool!

    PS- I hope you go buys some new shoes!! You deserve it.

    1. Thanks Lee - I've actually lost weight which was a shocker - today with the PSI bands I've been better and have more to eat....I'm doing as you suggested and eating bites here and there - appreciate the advice! AND you know I'm going to go buy some new shoes! :)
