Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces...

This is bad. This is very bad.

You see the time? You know what time I start work in the mornings? (5:30) You know what time I usually go to sleep? (About 3 hours ago.) You know what that makes me? Screwed.

Basically, if I manage to hop in bed and fall asleep in the next 3 minutes, I will have MAXIMUM 4 hours sleep. If I try to tough it out and stay up, then I’ll end up being exhausted at 3 am.

Not to mention I feel guilty for calling out sick on Friday — I think that’s keeping me awake. I mean…I get 10 sick days a year. I never use more than 6. What kind of work ethic do I have if I feel crummy for staying home when I feel like crap? Actually, what kind of life ethic do I have?

OK…at least I have SOME idea as to what I’m wearing tomorrow. That’ll help.

Sweet merciful crap!

(a few moments of personal time while my hotjobs convert)

Wt: 148.8 Sweet merciful crap!!!! I gained 5 lbs in that many days? Nuh-uh!! What did I eat? A bunch of porterhouses? That’s it. NOW I’m serious. I am getting down to 135 if I have to shave my head and lose some toes to do it. This is war.

Mood: Well, I’m cheesed off as hell now that I’m closer to 150 than 140 again. I was in a decent mood before that. Grrr…

Work docket: Ingle column update, Hot Jobs, 2:00 meeting w/Features.

Lunch plans: Lean Cuisine, baby. (muttering)

Afternoon/evening: Continue eradication of Christmas from the apartment. Go to gym tonight. (mutters)

What a pain! I’m going to need a whole morning of Dave Matthews music therapy to alleviate this stress. #*%(^#(*@((#…

January 12, 2003 – evening

Just got back from Target, where I went in search of my usual Vassarette hose and the Chicago soundtrack. I left with only socks. 🙁 Firstly, my favorite hose EVER was all marked down on clearance — which doesn’t bode well for its future. None left in my size. Vassarette sells thigh-highs…I don’t like wearing the full-coverage type of pantyhose (TMI alert!!!) The Chicago CD wasn’t in stock — it’s not being released until 1/14. I did see some of the ‘Swell‘ line, but it didn’t really have me whipping out the ol’ debit card.

(sigh) I’d LOVE to have clothing for work that is stylish, affordable, and doesn’t make me look like a crack-whore or a 16 year old hootchie-mama. I KNOW there has got to be a place that can do that for me. Do I really have to start sewing my own again? I hate when I pick up a nice peasant-style blouse, in a great color, and it ends up to be see-through or cut down to my navel or edible. Conversely, I don’t like to look like a prison matron either.

Christmas is halfway dismantled. I’ll finish the rest tomorrow. It’ll be nice to get the boxes out of the apartment. 🙂
