Today was not as bad as yesterday. Different, certainly. And I kind of forced it to be better. The day still started too early, and I was still on my feet all day, but after I collapsed into a chair during our lunch break, my coworker brought my sandwich to me, unasked, so I could spend the entire break off my feet. He’s a nice guy. I had already decided not to run today (SO hot outside), so that automatically freed up some time once I got home, but unfortunately, about an hour of it was taken up by work stuff that came up during my commute. (It kinda sucks when your whole team is spread out across all four time zones. We all rely on each other, and that means we have to be available when the guy in Seattle needs help (for example).) I’d planned to take the dogs to the dog park, but by the time I was free to go, it was almost sunset (when the dog park closes). So that was out. I spent some time with them in the yard, but it’s not the same. (For them. It’s about the same for me.) Anyway, I forced my day to be better by making sure I had time to myself (and I ordered Indian (my favorite) for dinner). I thought I’d make it Internet time, but it turned into TV time instead. I watched a couple of shows John has never been interested in. He gave up on Flashforward after the third episode (I should have), and he never even started Cougar Town. Stupid name, but I like the show.
I’m having DVR priority issues again. Why does every show I want to see come on Tuesdays at 10? We record Southland and The Good Wife every week, and we want to keep up with V, but it comes on at the same time. So annoying. We’ll have to resort to hulu.com for V, I guess. (Yes, we watch a lot of TV. Someday, I’ll list our shows by night they get recorded, which is a mostly meaningless piece of information to me. I don’t care when it’s on. I just want to make sure it gets recorded so we can watch it later. The DVR is the greatest invention EVER.)
Anyway, it’s after nine and I need to head in the direction of bed. Which reminds me…I’m expecting my sleep to be interrupted tonight. John said Roxy had a seizure this morning before he left for work. Normal length, and it was a cluster (one followed by another), and if she follows her pattern, she’s already a little overdue for the next one. We’re still investigating switching her to a new medication. We’re looking for other (cheaper) ways we can get it.
Oh, was that John’s car door? He mentioned he might get out of class early tonight…
Yeah, not his car door. A neighbor’s. I’m tired and I need to go to bed, but I just started to browse through my regular sites and I miss having time to play on the Internet. Yes, I’ve said it before, and yes, I could have this evening if I’d skipped all the TV, but it’s too late now, and I’m tired. So, Internet, I’m sorry I’m neglecting you. Forgive me?
