What did you think about when you read the blog title? Maybe the London Bridge Is Falling Down song. Or maybe the idea of not burning your bridges with your friends, family, coworkers, etc. If you live(d) in or around Minnesota 4 years ago today... Read more

Saturday, July 23, 2011      1 comments

Earlier this month I finished reading "How Doctors Think" by Jerome Groopman. It really taught me a lot - including that I need to be a more active participant in my medical care because I'm a zebra - so doctors don't want to deal with me. ... Read more

When I have a hard time sleeping during the week I want nothing more than to sleep in on the weekend. Though sometimes, like today, no matter how much I try to wake up, it just doesn't happen. So even though I fell asleep on the couch at about 1... Read more

In order to attempt to meet the work project deadline that I've been putting a ton of overtime in to try to get done, I ended up not stopping to take a break or lunch until 3:20 today at work (I'm supposed to be done at 4). By the time I finishe... Read more

Yesterday sucked bad (I could give a few more colorful words, but if you read last night's blog, you'll understand). Today wasn't all that much better. 7.5 hours of sleep, but I'm always tired no matter how much sleep I get. One of these days I'... Read more

Today was beyond a bad day. Exhausted, stressed-out ramblings ahead.

Monday, July 11, 2011      2 comments

Today has been TERRIBLE. There were severe storms in the area last night, so I couldn't even get to bed until 1am. After laying in bed for an hour not being able to fall asleep, I went upstairs to sleep on the couch. 4 hours later and I had to g... Read more

In yesterday's blog, I talked about not going to an event my company is doing. Well, today the corporate office had our monthly meeting and I realized that there is going to be a lot of people there that I don't really know and haven't talked to... Read more

Too much cleaning delayed my dinner

Monday, July 04, 2011      3 comments

I spent about 4 hours today doing some cleaning. I don't know how it goes on so long without me realizing how much time went by! I do not like cleaning. But once I get started, I just go and go and don't want to stop. Tonight I was extremely lat... Read more
