I love my Kitty!!!

Steve is lovey!

Also, I got a haircut today. Yesterday, I decided to duck into the salon down the strip mall from the P1 I work at and get an appointment for today if possible. It was my first salon appointment in almost 3 years (as well as the first professional cut in as long). She did a great job. She really listened to what I want--she had naturally curly hair and got it. She kind of styled it like I am Shirley Temple, but it is not too terrible and the way she formed my curls will wash out and my hair will curl its on way next time. It is a great length and a great shape, and I am actually going to try and maintain and create a rapport with my stylist. Pictures to follow.


PS Jim I still have not mailed your copy of my CD back to you. I know, I totally suck.

Here is what I did last weekend

I went sailing. These are pictures (including a really quite not so flattering one) of me taken by Sam from his cell phone and emailed to me. Sailing was awesome. I loved it, and I will do it lots more if allowed please. They let me steer, and at first it was terrifying but later it was just cool!!!!!!!

Le Sigh

I have felt like fail a lot at the new job. Like no matter what I cannot seem to swing it all. Although it is not really as bad as that all sounds or seems. Mostly that is true because as a receptionist/girl friday/executive assistant I need to have an important skill set that includes really knowing what my boss would like, being able to read his scrawl/handwriting, and knowing more about what the heck happens at my new workplace. However, not been there long enough to really have the hang of those things. Getting better though, better all the time.

Tired, tired, tired

I just am. And I have two jobs I like now. That didn't used to be the truth, and the first job pays me pretty well (which is awesome--yea new job), so it is making losing the other job really tempting. So tempting that I doubt the second job will last the summer. It will probably last paying off the credit card incurred by it.

The hard thing is, I will miss it. I just can't do it anymore. I am tired most of the time. I don't have real weekends, I don't have time to go to the movies, and I am just constantly slammed. I would keep working if they could work it so I just only ever work Thursday nights, but that is a preposterous thing to ask them. Plus I will never get more available to them, only less. They need someone who can be there all the time. The trouble is that they have a bit of a quandry in my position--they should only have me.

But really, I need to not have all this to do, and for the first time I can afford it, plus I no longer have to have it as a refuge from my terrible job. And when my play slows down I will go work there for the holidays. It is a good plan, and I think it is what is going to have to happen. The good news is that I will have weekends again. Weekends that may have room for bus trips to MO and for actual Chicago fun like I haven't had since I was flat ass broke.

So, the pain has minimized

It has. I go to the chiropractor for muscle shocking and spine cracking still. In fact it looks as if I will be going at least for a while and they may have just mailed my stimulus check to Dr. Kauf my vaguely celebrity-infomercially chiropractioner. It feels tons better, so it is kind of worth it.

I am really tired, so that is all we get right now.

I hurt my neck somehow, and I cannot handle how much it hurts me right now. If I move just barely the wrong way, there is a shot of pain up the back right side of my neck. This is so not cool. Finding a chiropractor right now. Not at work.

Poor Sam seemed very befuddled at what to do with a Heather lying on his floor kind of moaning limply with the pain. It was awful.

busy day

Somedays, I think I wish that I did not do a thousand tiny things in one day because it makes me feel as if I accomplished nothing.  When in reality I accomplished a lot, but when it is all mostly smallish an bordering on triviality it seems like less stuff.
I did however accomplish getting a little sun at lunch sitting on a bench by Crown Fountain shooting the shit with Bushie.  It was very nice.  I have not caught up with that guy too much, but we are neighbors here at work (he literally works a block and a pinch away from me).  It was warm and lovely and almost too hot!  Who knew we had this in us here in Chicago.  A month ago it was still the dead of winter!

Busy Busy Busy

Work has gotten full.  In a good way.  It was starting to get thin in an I can't take this sort of way.  And now I am projected.  I have three or our of them of vaying levels of complex all happening.  They are all kind of going or floating there ready to get gotten.  It is good.  Tomorrow I am going to my first streetfest of the Chicago "summer" down here the Looptopia.  It should be awesome.  Free cabarets.  It will be great.  I cannot wait.
