The days are flying by. Keeping busy with work, every night I bring home a stack of invoices to data enter. I stopped at the hospital on my way home tonight to get my INR checked, hopefully it will have come down some. I booked a trip on the Disney Cruise ship Wonder for next week Wednesday. I am excited. I need to get downtown to get a certified birth certificate and out by Kim to get a haircut before then. A week from today, I'll be in Orlando. For now, I'm typing away at the computer.

I am done with the stack of invoices I brought home. Tomorrow, I'll grab another stack. At least it's casual day and I can wear jeans to work. It seems I am more productive when I'm working in jeans. Today was trick or treat here in Cudahy and I didn't see very many kids out on the street. No one comes to the apartment building so the peanut butter cups are all mine. I did run out, stopped at Culver's and Border's. The new Peter Pan book "Peter and the Secret of Rundoon" is out, so I had to get a copy. Not too much going on, going to lounge and read tonight.

I've been up since 7:00am, working away at my latest project. Making good time, I'm about half-way done with what I wanted to do today. That'll give me time to do some other things this weekend besides work. Went out to dinner last night, Riviera Maya on KK in Bay View, good mexican food. Then stopped for ice cream. Came home and fell asleep before 10:00pm. I am a wild one.

The blood thinners are working too good, my INR is at 8.1 today. I am going to stop taking them for two days (doctor's orders). Then I will be taking 5mg a day. No shaving for me for a while. Taking a break from data entry and watching Survivor, then back to work for another hour. I will be busy all weekend.

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

I brought work home with me tonight. Have another large project to get done. This one will keep me busy for quite a while. Ran to Target for some essentials like tooth paste, shaving cream, animal crackers, and Meet the Robinsons DVD. At some point this week I'll find the time to watch the movie. The clerk at the store told me she loved it and has seen it several times. I like hearing good movie reviews. Going to get back to data entry shortly, after I eat. I will take a break to watch America's Next Top Model though. (still hooked on ANTM.)

It's raining out and the temperature is falling. It seems so dreary compared to the weekend. I started going through all the invoices I pulled in Orlando last week. It's going to keep me busy at work for quite awhile. They seem to be finished working on the roof and I was able to park in the lot again. It's so much nicer than parking on the street. Still feeling good, nothing troubling to mention. I will have scans done the first week in November. Until then, I'll just be rambling about things I do.

What an incredible weekend for late October. The weather reminded me of Florida! While I was walking through the zoo today, it seemed just like walking down main street at the Magic Kingdom. Almost. Nothing compares to Disney. I was there for about 6 hours on Monday, got to see the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean, the street parades, ride the Monorail several times, and shop! Lots of fun. The weather turns back to seasonal tomorrow, and I'm back to the routine. Sigh.

I wanted to sleep in this morning, but the repairmen got here early to work on the roof. I'm still parking on the street because of their equipment and a dunpster are in the parking lot. They were supposed to be done by now, but rain has delayed their progress. Hopefully by Tuesday I'll be back in my parking space behind the building.

Well, I'm back home after four days in Orlando Florida. I was able to get to the Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney in between working. It was a good experience for me, to get out of the office and see how things operate for the company. Aunt Christine and Uncle Doug, Thank you for a wonderful time, it was great to spend time with you while I was there. Thanks Greg and Brad for giving me the opportunity to travel too! I'm feeling fine, seems that my body has settled down and I'm doing well. More on my escapades tomorrow.

Sunday, October 14, 2007

I fly out at 8:00am tomorrow. I finished packing and actually shaved tonight. I'm excited about going to Disney. I'm even excited about working in the Orlando area. I will not have access to a computer, so there won't be any posts until I get back on Thursday. I'll keep a log of my activities so I can write about my experiences. Until then.

Not too much going on today, just lounging around. Been reading and watching TV. Earlier I went and got some prescriptions filled and some stuff to take on my business trip next week. I'm looking forward to getting to Florida, warm weather, sun, Disney. I got my clothes picked out, started organizing things and ready to pack. I will actually do that tomorrow, it'll give me something to do besides laying around. Last night I went with Doug to see Char sing with the band, first time in quite a while. To this day, I still get a kick out of hearing her sing. There was a costume party going on, and there were a number of people dressed as clowns. Frightening. Char and I wailed anytime they were around. Too funny. She always makes me laugh.

Blood levels are all normal including platelets. Good news! I am relieved.

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

It's just downright cold out. Dreary. I'm doing some laundry, and baking some cookies. They started working on the roof of the apartment building today. There's a big dumpster in the parking lot so I have to park on the street for the next several nights. Hopefully this company will repair the roof properly and it won't leak anymore. Funny thing, it's raining right now, I wonder how far they got today.

The weather is about to turn, become seasonal, cool. I've really been enjoying the hot streak, sorry to see it go. I am glad I'm heading down to Florida, for a stint of warm weather. Oh yeah, work too. I keep thinking it's a Disney trip, when it's really a business trip. With a visit to the Magic Kingdom included!

Sunday, October 07, 2007

Another wonderful day, warm, sunny. All too soon it'll be blustery and cool. I went shopping earlier today, got The Jungle Book on DVD and some Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. This is a dangerous time of year for me, all the sales on candy are too irresistible. I had lunch with Mom and Dad and played a game of Scrabble with them afterward. For only the third time ever, I won! It was a really close game, with each of us withing points of each other. It was a good game. Now I'm just waiting for the new Simpsons, Family Guy, and American Dad episodes. One more day of great weather and then back to dreary Fall conditions. My trip to Florida is coming at a good time.

I'm about to start my day, getting outside. No specific plans, just going to wander, see where the road takes me. I want to enjoy the beautiful weather while it lasts. My PT/INR is 3.4, so the doctor has dropped my Coumadin to 5mg per day. That is good! Eventually I will stop taking it all together. That is great! Last night Doug and I got out to Bayshore, had food at California Pizza Kitchen and browsed through a couple of shops. It seemed like I was in an entirely different city, I was impressed. (granted I impress easily!)

Tonight I am lounging. The project is wrapping up and the nights and weekends of data entry are done for now. I will be travelling to Orlando October 15th through the 18th. I am excited, have plans all ready for dinner at EPCOT one night and a trip to the Magic Kingdom another night. I finally stopped and had my blood drawn to have my PT/INR checked. I'm so good at procrastinating. The other morning, I hit a van while making a u-turn going to work. The van driver must have thought I was turning into the lot he was coming out of and pulled out and as I was crossing the intersection, our vehicles came into contact. I have nice scratches along the entire length of the drivers side, nothing too bad, just a nice reminder of the incident. Of course the van never stopped. I pulled over and watched it drive away. Good thing it wasn't serious or I'd be extremely irritated. I hate panel vans.

Tuesday, October 02, 2007

Still working on the project, but am coming to an end, I am tired. Hopefully it should be done by weeks end. Besides from being worn out from all this work, I'm doing well. Not too much going on outside of work right now, so don't have much to say. Once I can lounge nightly, my mind will wander, and I'll have plenty to comment on.
