What a day...

Thankfully today flew by for me but what a day it was!! I woke up naturally at 5:40am, as I usually do since I've been on the early shift and realized I didn't have to be up yet, so proceeded to fall back asleep. I woke up some time later, looked at the clock and realized I'd forgotten to change my alarm time and only had 15 minutes to get ready for work. Thankfully, I can be really fast when I have to. I made it to work on time and halfway through the day had to take care of a really complex call. Probably won't be the last one either. Turns out I'm going to have to call the merchant back and tell him that he's not going to get the money back that he was hoping to get back because he waited too long to call us and follow up on it. After work I headed over to my dentist to finally get my filling fixed...which has been hurting for about 2 weeks now...ever since he replaced it. I get there and they tell me that they tried to call me because the Dentist called in sick... so I rescheduled for tomorrow. It wouldn't be so bad if my dentist's office wasn't across town. It takes me a full hour to get there from work but since I was already out and about I figured I'd stop back in at Chapters and pick up the Feng Shui book I'd been eyeing the other day. Of course, I ended up getting $100 worth of books by the end of it. *sigh* Books have always been one of my biggest weaknesses. So then I head home and I get to the bus stop and I wait...and wait........and wait..... then a bus FINALLY comes (good thing because at this point my back is just KILLING me!) and of course it's packed because it's just after 4:00pm... thankfully a bit of patience and I see another one coming down the street......and another...... and another. FIVE busses in total!! There may have been more but I wasn't under any intention of waiting to count. I can't even beging to understand why we would have to wait 15 minutes for a bus and then FIVE show up all at once. There is something seriously wrong with the timing of the Dufferin busses. So I'm on the bus and I look out the window and there is a woman on the street corner holding her bible raised high above her head and saying something to the passing cars (thankfully I couldn't hear over the bus engine). She looked kind of like Aunt Jemima without the kerchief of her head.... "PRAISE THE LORD!" Anyway... finally I get home and show off my new books. To think that I could probably still go back out and do at least another 2 hours worth of errands is tiring in itself. Even at home I still have tons of errands that I could be doing. I still have tons of clutter to sort through but it's coming together. One thing I'm noticing though is that now that I've had my floor cleaned for a while I'm really wanting a lot of the other cluttered areas cleaned up and some of them are quite a task to tackle let me tell you! Slowly but surely! So far I'm doing pretty well.

In other news... I seem to have developed a bit of a twitch in my right eye. Not sure why but it sure is annoying. I'm hoping it will pass.

I'm noticing a lot of changes in my lifestyle and mental outlook. I feel they're for the better and hope that's how it comes across to those who know me. I'm trying to live a more healthy, balanced life. I still have my emotional days and my worn out days and my depressed days, but my overall sense of well-being seems to be improving. I have however, been getting back into that bad habit of sleeping in the middle of the day. Not sure why I've been so tired as I'm back on part-time. Wondering if I might still just be "recovering" for overworking myself the last three weeks. Not sure...but I've made an appointment to see the acupuncturist/ who knows.... that might help... I hope.
