Had been super busy. 60 hour work weeks (money good, lack of time not so good), followed by stomach flu currently. My entire body hurts. Puked for two days. This is the third. No puking, but I still feel like hell.
G-ma in hospital. Mom in hospital. Pneumonia. Joe is still doing fine. He suspects all the time at the hospital did me and Kyle in.
Job interview with Banana Republic tomorrow. Retail is not where I want to be, but I do hope I get the job and I'll make sure to make myself valuable to them. Top side is one of the manager's is Joe's cousin, whom is pretty nice. I need a job and I look forward to picking away at my school loans with more ease.
Also as of this week I am out of medical debt! Woo!
Kyle has been staying with us all week which is nice.
Also I have lost and kept off a solid 10 lbs in a little over a month. I wish it was more, but I recognize it's a healthy loss. Another 10lbs and I'll be more than pleased. Another 10 after that, and I will never complain about my appearance in terms of weight ever again. But spending so much time thinking about what I am eating, counting calories, occasionally restricting, breaking my binging habits every time I eat something sweet again and again: It's tiring! But I have to admit that not only did I let myself go in college, but it's only natural for my metabolism to being to slow down. Plus surgery didn't help.
Either way, my goal weight is around the 110-112 mark. But I was pretty comfortable at 120 as well. I'm at 130 now. And on the occasional morning when I wake up to see 129lbs on the scale, I get excited.
Note for self on books to buy for academic yay-ness. In the library doing work and am in love with a few books I stumbled upon.
Images of the Corpse: from the Renaissance to Cyberspace Elizabeth Klaver Ed. 2004
Art and Pornography: An Experiment and Explanation by Morse Peckham 1969
Virtue and Beauty: leonardo's Ginevra de' Benci and Renaissance Portraits of Women by David Alan Brown Ed. 2001
Got home from Belgium and Ireland.
My ovary and appendix nearly ruptured.
Both are removed.
I need more pain meds then they gave me. Stingy fuckers.
