Thursday Thirteen - 153 - 13 Things I Did Today

1 - Woke up at 5:00 this morning in a lot of pain (migraine.) Struggled to get up in order to take acetaminophen with codeine. Slept till 7. Second wake-up was much more tolerable.

2 - Spent the morning dealing with an avalanche of paper (I scan documents,) wondering if anyone had sent out the Saint Bernard to dig me out.

3 - Smiled repeatedly at the signatures of elderly people on the document avalanche. I love their characters which shine through the squiggliness.

4 - Enjoyed break time with my sister, who works in the same office as me. Cool!

5 - Worked like a perpetual motion machine, trying to stay one step ahead of the avalanche.

6 - Kept the pedal to the metal and worked two hours overtime, but got to sing along to my playlist with no one else there but me. Party!

7 - Thanked God when the bus that includes a 3-minute walk for me rolled up first, rather than the one which includes a 20-minute walk. Woo hoo!

8 - Enjoyed the moody fog in the woods as I walked those three minutes between the bus stop and home.

9 - Gave my wiggly-waggly overjoyed-to-see-me dog lots of lovin'.

10 - Made a cup of green tea after supper.

11 - Rolled my eyes at this headline in the Chronicle Herald:

Cardinals claim opposition to gay marriage, abortion fuelling ‘hate’ campaign

12 - Changed into my comfies and sat at the computer.

13 - Put my earphones on and relaxed with a little bit of Richard Armitage therapy. Here's a current favorite on my You Tube playlist. Love the editing job that Liisakee did *applause* Song is Where I Want to Be from the musical Chess, sung by Josh Groban. Clips are from seasons 1-3 of BBC's Robin Hood.



Ms Snarky Pants says I know at least 4 other people, including me, who had a migraine today. Obviously there was something in the air!

Frances says You definitely know how to make lemonade when life hands you a lemon - and first thing in the morning to boot. Waving at you from New York.

Kelly Boyce says Sounds like a pretty good day. Mine was dull, dull, dull. Boss was away and I forgot my flashdrive with my mss on it at home.

Ugh. Yes I had a really bad headache, not a migraine (thank goodness), but a bad headache in the middle of the night as a Thunder Storm rolled through.

I didn't realize you and your sister worked in the same office. That's pretty cool.

Brenda ND said...

You're lucky to get to work with your sister. Hope you're feeling better.

It's nice that you have a sister to share time with - wish I was so lucky.
Hoping you never have another migraine to deal with.
Waving at you from New York.

Hope you're feeling better Julia - I know what kind of pain that is. Also rolled my eyes at said headline as the phrase "no grip on reality" went through my head...

Travis said...

Sounds like a satisfyingly full day!

I really enjoyed the you tube video. Very nice song to go with the eye candy.

Kelly Boyce said...

Sounds like a pretty good day. Mine was dull, dull, dull. Boss was away and I forgot my flashdrive with my mss on it at home. Spent most of my day twiddling my thumbs and staring into space. What fun...
