What a surreal evening.

What a surreal evening. David slept until 7pm. I fell asleep on the chaise after watching a bit of TV. That was around 8ish. David woke me up at 3am to go to bed, since I was looking a bit pretzel-like. I lay in bed and the mind started to wake up. I thought about if I had staged something for the site. If I didn’t, it would be gone all weekend. (CPO.com has two servers…staging and live. Changes made to the live server happen immediately. Staging overwrites live at 3:00 each morning. That lets us post tomorrow’s news. If I put something live and NOT on staging, it disappears at 3am) Hm. Tortured, I get back up, hop on the PC. Stuff is gone. Damn.

So I can’t let it be broken all weekend, given big raise and kudos given less than 24 hours prior, so I throw some clothes over my nightie and prepare to leave. David’s still awake so he offers to accompany. Go to the office, re-upload the stuff, (staging and live) and am out in about 10 minutes. Now we’re hungry, since we skipped dinner.

We stop at Starlite diner in Magnolia around 4:10ish for a bite to eat. Of ALL things, I end up eating an openfaced grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and tomato! I’m back in bed by 5:00 am and dream the psychadelic dreams of one who had grilled cheese w/bacon and tomato before bed. David hobbles in at 9am. I hobble out, since someone has to be awake to take Mickey to the vet at 11:00 for his blood test.

So that was my big “Celebrate the HUGE raise” evening. :)

I also missed our Guild Festival Meeting, which happened at 9pm EST…I feel like a real bum about that. :(

And while we’re at it:
Wt: 139.0. Not too shabby for one who had a freaking grilled cheese sandwich w/BACON and tomato before bed.

Vet says that Mickey’s seizure(s) may be due to hypoglycemia

Vet says that Mickey’s seizure(s) may be due to hypoglycemia — meaning too much insulin. We knocked him down to 5 units twice daily, put him on Vasotec for his heart, move him to a whole fluid pill (he’s on a half now). Believe it or not, that’s actually good news. Vet believes Mickey’s treatable. We’ll take him back for more blood to be drawn tomorrow. From today’s blood tests, his liver and kidneys are functioning fine. We’re going to keep the Little Dog around with us as long as we can. :)

Tomorrow morn’s Vet appointment takes precedence over Body Pump. And it’s too chilly to go to the gym.

Another positive development of the day is that my salary has been ‘adjusted’ upward to the tune of (over) six grand. This will put me in line with what others in our parent company are making for doing my job. I am elated! I am also tired and imprisioned by inertia.

How was your day?

My dog Mickey had a seizure yesterday

Wt: 138.8. Good. I’d be worried if I kept losing like I had the last few days. Only a pound or so up from where I was when vacation started.
Mood: Sad. My dog Mickey had a seizure yesterday. David’s taking him to the vet this morning. He reassured me, telling me that if even if it it epilepsy, it’s treatable. But the more we think back on the dog, and his behavior, the more we think this wasn’t the first seizure. I wish my dog could tell me what’s wrong with him. Besides that, though, the dog is happy and not in pain. And don’t even come back to me with “It’s just a dog.” Just don’t.
Work docket: I’m working slowly today — can’t get my mind off of the dog. Hot properties…job fair ad…hopefully a recipes update.
Lunch plans: Brought Smart Ones Basil Chicken.
Afternoon plans: YMCA, I guess.
Evening plans: I missed last night’s guild meeting…but there’s a festival committee one tonight at 9pm. I wrote the first two pages of my trip report last night. I’ll post them to the site tonight. If I’m not depressed.
Saturday: I’m toying with going to Body Pump tomorrow morn. ANd powercleaning all day.
Sunday: Church and a PPV. (Damn…the WWE is churning these things out superfast!)

Friday Five:
1. What drinking water do you prefer — tap, bottle, purifier, etc.?
At home I drink tap water because I don’t taste anything wrong with it. I’ll fill up plastic bottles of tap water and refrigerate them to get them nice and cold. Here at work I won’t TOUCH the waterfountain/tap water. We have water coolers with purifiers built in that I use to fill up bottles.

2. What are your favourite flavor of chips?
Cape Cod Original Kettle Fried. After that, it’s Ruffles Sour Cream and Cheddar.

3. Of all the things you can cook, what dish do you like the most?
Lasagna, followed by Martha Stewart’s Mac and Cheese.

4. How do you have your eggs?
Well scrambled, not runny. I also used to make a mean homemade omlet with Velveeta cheese and chunks of ham. That’s when I was heavier. :)

5. Who was the last person who cooked you a meal? How did it turn out?
Er…I can’t remember. We’ve been eating convenience foods lately, with vacation and all. Oh wait! Mom cooked Mother’s Day dinner…meatballs. They were great! :)

I updated ladygypsy.net last night!

Wt: 138.8. Freaky how hte vacation weight’s falling off now that I’m back on my usual eating plan. Maybe I peed out a major organ — I’ve been drinking a lot of water lately.
Mood: Again, eerily happy.
Work docket: Fixed Communities. Will do scrapbook, some dining stuff from yesterday. We’re also having pizza for Damon’s Birthday — I have to orchestrate that.
Lunch plans: I’m skipping lunch so I can leave at 1:00 for…
Afternoon plans: The BusinessPerson Special Phillies Game! Our (wildly inconsistant) Phighting Phils (22-18) play the Arizona Diamondbacks (19-21) at 3:05 this afternoon. Going with Mom and John.
Evening: Tidy kitchen/living room. Do laundry. Guild meeting at 10:00. May play Dierdre the Pain a bit before then.
