I Need to Clean My Room

I just found the car of my dreams! BUT, I think it's too good to be I'm gonna have my brother check it out. If we can talk the price down, just a little bit, I hope it can be mine! I'm sure there's something about it that I'm overseeing. But, we'll see. Ry and I will be out and about today car-shopping (I still don't have a car since I've returned home from Japan. I think my Mom just gave my car away. She said she sold it, but now I am hearing a different story. Whatever). If I am able to buy a car today, I will be the happiest girl in the whole-wide-world!

Everyone is sick at work. Many cases now of the swine flu. Even I have been feeling a little under the weather, but nothing serious. I still refuse to get too sick to stay home from work. :)

I graduated yesterday from my 3 week training course! But I still don't know what I'm doing... bedroom is a complete disaster.

Over the Hump

So tired. Long day. Everyone's getting sick. Co-workers even have the swine flu. I swear, if I get sick, I will be so unhappy. I refuse to get sick. I'm doing everything I possibly can to stay healthy and maintain a clean work space. In fact, I'm quite paranoid about getting sick, that I'm becoming a little obsessive with cleanliness all around me. Can't be too safe!

I'm so excited to go to bed. It's 8:45pm right now, and I feel like I am due past bed time. So, farewell and goodnight.

ps. Barney's opens tomorrow (at Fashion Square)!!! WOOP! :D
I suppose I know where my first pay check is going towards (get paid tomorrow)!!!!
I almost bought a puppy today.

Sad Face

Well, in today's news: I have temporomandibular joint disorder- which is also referred to as TMJ or TMD. I first noticed this maybe two or three years ago, but never was it as serious as it is now. Today my jaw has been "locked" all freakin' day! It's only painful if I try to pop it and it doesn't give. If I'm able to pop it, it's great relief, but usually locks right back up again. It sucks- a lot. I think it's really bad right now due to stress. I know I need to get it checked out, but am too stubborn to take a day off work to do so. I'm never "normal." If it's not a broken bone, it's a pinched nerve. If it's not a pinched nerve, it's a joint problem. If it's not a joint problem, it's nerve damage, etc, etc. I think you get the point. I told my Mom that it's no big deal, but I do think I'm dying. I said, "Mom, it's ok, I accept it." But she doesn't give me my blessing.

Other than my jaw issue, today was a great day! I met with my manager and succeeded in solving a real-life problem! I pat myself on the back.

If you know anything about TMJ, could you please, please let me know anything! I've been researching a bit about it, but have found little helpful information.
Arigato gozaimasu!

Yay Saturday!

I cannot believe I got paid yesterday. My employers decided to take us on a surprise field trip for most of the day AND leave work an hour early (all paid for). The place we went was the place I was hoping for! We went to Dave and Busters (Desert Ridge) and played unlimited games and ate delicious food! I even got to see my brother (he works for the same company as me. Currently, we're at different locations, but after one more week, we'll be together. yay)! It was so, so much fun! Now, I love my job even more! However, I may not feel the same next week......that's going to be incredibly stressful and overwhelming. Oh, goodness.

I'm still a little behind on my marathon training; however, I'm slowly catching up on the miles I've missed out on. I did the math yesterday and am currently behind by 9.32 miles. However, I'm supposed to do a long run of 9 miles today....I don't see that happening. Bad attitude, Sarah, bad attitude. I'll get a run in today! :)

ps. My camera's broken. I don't know what happened, but the screen is shattered. I blame the bubble gum vodka that entered my life last Saturday night.

Another Week Begins

This weekend went by way too fast. I spent all of today hung-over, due to drinking too much bubble-gum vodka last night. I even over-slept this morning and got into a little bit of trouble. It was my responsibility to get up by 5:30am, go to 6:15 mass, and take Diane to work. But "someone" was messing around with my phone last night and set it to silent; so my alarm clock never went off. Oopsies.

I'm ready for bed. So sleepy. I hope this week goes by faster than last.

Happy October!

Erica's 25th Birthday
September 26th, 2009

I have been awful about keeping my blog updated! My apologies. Now that it's October, I will try to get myself together!

I started my new job this week. I must say, it was the longest week of my life! Filled with frustration, confusion, exhaustion, and overwhelming amounts of information. I would like to share more about what I do with you, but it goes hand in hand with CIA work, so I can't be too thorough. I do, however, have an additional 2 weeks left of training, so I'm trying to maintain a low stress/anxiety level. Then again, I do tend to feel easily overwhelmed and worried about everything/anything that I am held responsible for. Makes sense, right?

I have also fallen far behind on my marathon training. Very far behind. So, it is my goal to get back on track next week. ~Must stay disciplined.~

Happy Birthday to my sister, Lizzard! Even though she never, ever reads this blog, just thought I'd shout it out anyway.
