<p>I was up later than I wanted to be last night because Evelyn wasn't sleeping well.  I blame the heat and humidity.  And the douchecanoe next door who decided to burn a bunch of garbage in his yard, bringing smoke in my windows, making me close them all and making my house way too warm for anyone's liking.  Grrrrrrrrrrr.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today's Fun:  Free lunch and hopefully getting out on the bike with the Heartland Tour people.</p>

<p>Morning!! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My desk is currently a disaster!  I am trying to piece together an experiment without all the updated info.  It's not impossible but will take much longer to do.  If only people responded to requests for info!  Hohum. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>And my SIL is making me furious.  We have Eagles season tickets that we split.  Every year I pay for them cuase despite payment being due the same time every year, she claims she doesn't have the money and she will pay me back.  Well this year, I paid us up on June 5.  I have yet to see a penny from her.  ANd today she sends me an email detailing all the long weekend trips they are taking this summer.  Um, how about you pay me the money you owe me before you plan ANY trips!  DH thinks I should just let it ride till the season starts and tell her sorry, you are out of luck, you never paid so I sold your tickets!  I am only going ot 1 game this year and there are lots of games I can sell for a profit.  I am seriously considering his evil option!</p>

<p>I slept much better last night and I feel like a different person today.  yay!  I purposefully didn't set my alarm early to try and run.  I didn't want that hanging over my trying-to-sleep-better head. This afternoon and tonight we're supposed to get severe weather so I may try my treadmill at home.  I haven't been on it in AGES.  It was coming to a sudden and complete stop about 1 mile into my runs,  Once I picked myself up off the floor and restarted the thing it was okay so I'll give it a whirl. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today's Fun: My co-worker texted me asking if I had time to stop and pick her up two bagels.  I did and I stopped at the bagel shoppe on the way in to work and was planning to get 3 bagels - one for me too of course. Well, it's baker's dozen Wednesday!  So I could either get 3 bagels for $2.79 or 13 for $5.99.  So I got the 13 and brought them in to work so I'm today's Office Hero. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif" style="width:26px;height:28px;" title=""></p>

<p>Morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just got back from the vet with Jack. Lots to do today. Hopefully I can get my butt in gear and actually cross things off my giant to-do list. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Lori, I like the evil option.</p>

<p>I just had my "end of year assessment" aka annual performance evaluation.  I'm pretty secure in knowing that I do a good job so I wasn't worried about it, and things went well.  My supervisor sang my praises essentially. :)  He actually put in writing that our department "would be in a world of hurt" if I weren't here.  Alas, the budget doesn't allow for more than just the tiniest increase in salary but at least I get an increase.  There are colleges/universities in my state that have laid off advising staff and across the country, many higher ed institutions have instituted mandatory furlough, etc.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>BigG- </strong> you'd be my Office Hero for sure!  I lurve bagels, I'd rather have them than donuts or pastries.<br>

That.  Is awesome.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm up to 7 nights....   One whopping hour of sleep, then tossing and turning for about an hour, then 90 minutes of sleep.... then nothing from 3:20 a.m. on.  I was in tears this morning.  Just sitting there crying. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Went to the doctor yesterday.  It was a complete waste of time and a $15 copay.  Despite telling him of my concerns about prescriptions and habit-forming sleep aids, I left with a prescription for Ambien and nothing else, other than his hunch that I don't have sleep apnea.  Forgive me for being underwhelmed by your medical expertise, doc. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Big G, I'd like a cinnamon raisin, please.  :)</p>

<p>Forgot to comment on Beaker's ticket saga.  Since she is your SIL, I would give her a deadline.  Pick a date and say, "Listen, I have some people asking me about the tix, and I really do need to be reimbursed by the end of the month b/c of [insert some financial obligation or vacation or big bill or whatever].  If you're not able to do it this year, I'll go ahead and sell them." </p>

<p>Hi, friends.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A couple of weeks ago I went to a networking thing that turned out to be totally stupid, but I met an interesting woman in the English department, gave her my card and suggested we should get together.  Well, we got together last night at the bar of a local restaurant and were having a pleasant time until this constant parade of university people started coming in to the bar.  Apparently, this is the only non-student bar downtown, so there's this crowd of faculty who haunt this place.  I met some nice people and the woman invited me out again tonight with another crowd of people.  It's nice to know that this little corner of adulthood exists in town, so I might join them more frequently.  I don't want to start drinking a lot, but it will be nice to meet a different group of people.  Plus, there are some single guys in the crowd (though quite a bit older than me), so I can practice my flirting.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hurray for <strong>Bard's</strong> successful evaluation!</p>
<p>Boo for <strong>Beaker's</strong> stupid SIL and messy desk!</p>
<p>Boo for <strong>Theia's</strong> doctor! (Are there sleep specialists in town you could try?)</p>
<p>Hurray for <strong>BigG's</strong> bagel heroics!</p>
<p>Hurray for <strong>Litch's</strong> sleep!</p>
<p>Early hurray for <strong>Clare's</strong> bike ride!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ok, I'm done.  I don't have any more exclamation points.</p>

Get a new doc. You have legitimate concerns, and if he/she doesn't listen or take them seriously he/she isn't the right doc for you.</p>

Brilliant.  This way, she knows there is an official deadline, and she won't be caught off guard if suddenly the tix are gone.  If she fails to pay by X date, tough noogies.  Sell the tix!<br><br>

So agreed.  That one didn't sound like they cared one iota.  Still - try the Ambien tonight, but see about finding another Dr to visit. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Otherwise -hip hip hurray for bagel bonuses, good work evaluations, mid-day bike rides, and new flirtation opportunities!  (My apologies if I left someone out of the kudos list!)</p>

Maybe I'm spoiled by interacting with my physician as much as I do (she's also our team physician for the college) but I gotta say a big fat +1 to <strong>Kath</strong> here...if you don't feel like the doc listened to you, or you don't have the rapport to bring up your concerns then Find. A. New. Doc.  Period.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun: going to see a matinee</p>
<p>Not Fun:  today's stage of the Tour isn't exciting in the least bit</p>
<p> </p>
<p>congrats on the positive review <strong>Bard</strong>!</p>
