The Week That Was

Saturday, November 06, 2010
For the past few days, I've been tasting seaweed whenever I burped. I know, TMI, but there you go. I couldn't understand it. I haven't eaten dulse in years; I don't eat fish other than tuna and frozen, deep fried, battered fish bits - certainly nothing "seaweed-y". I definately don't do sushi. What the heck was going on? And then, it hit me. This week, I started taking an Omega 3 supplement to help with my triglycerides/cholesterol since I don't get enough naturally. Sweet bejeebus. After the bottle is done, I think I'll be switching over to an Omega 3 sourced from flax. Yuck. So far, though, no one has commented on the fishy smell emanating from me...

Work...what can I say. More timesheet issues with the powers that be. Feeling underappreciated and overworked, except when I'm helping out in another, higher up the corporate ladder, office. They make me feel so welcome, appreciated, and happy to be there. To bad its all over and I'm back to my regular job on Monday. Sigh. At least I have a job so I'm going to focus on that and try to be thankful.

My internet connection died today for no reason. I spent almost 45 minutes on the phone with my cable/internet provider this morning, trying to sort out the problem. We were both at a loss until we finally figured out that one of my cords had died in the middle of making my blog rounds. Stupid ethernet cord. Now I have to hit the mall today and buy a new one. This is not a good way to start my weekend. Thank god there's exciting, do or die, football games on today.

On a positive note, I paid off my overdraft this week. Whew! Yeehaw! How grownup do I feel???! However, that puts a serious dent in my efforts at saving for the return trip I wanted to take next year to England. Damn. This dampens my joyous mood. However, I had one of those slap-in-the-face, what the heck is wrong with you-type of wake up moments this week when I decided to write down and add up everything I currently owe. Um....not good. I'm going to have to do some serious thinking and planning over the next few days to see if the trip is doable, should be done, and what impact it would have if I decided to go rather than putting that money towards paying down my debt. Sigh. Why do I have to be a grownup???

Karen, what do you mean by timesheet issues? Is that you are given the wrong time slots or that you or your colleagues are late? I saw your post on fb as well.

Congrats on paying off the overdraft!!
I hate banks so much!! Thank the gods I've never been overdrawn, but once in a while I get a letter if the charges change (you know, JUST in case I get overdrawn): a possible 25 quid to send me a letter to tell me I'm overdrawn! 25 quid to be told something I would already know anyway! I fuking HATE banks.
