Point of Exhaustion 

At least I'm past the halfway point of the working week. It's become a week of 12 hour days not to mention my "girl thing" is here, which really only makes me more crabby and tired. So that doesn't help. Far from bitching though, I think that this is a very productive week.

Monday I put in my first order for Mary Kay. Apparently I qualify for a free umbrella too. It's pink, I like it, it's foldable and I just threw out my old one because it was broken. I just hope that with summer coming up I will not have to use it all that much. To digress a little, I don't understand the rationale behind dull coloured umbrellas. Rain makes the landscape dreary enough without soggy gray umbrellas gracing the scene. My last umbrella was red. A bright colour has powerful psychological effects and my red umbrella made me feel a little bit better even though it was cold piss raining.

Tuesday. Well Tuesday was just insane and you can read about it here. I'm not going to talk about it again, only to say that I did get to play a bit of Black and White, but I'm so bad at the controls that I've decided to get Jim to play it for me while I watch and make comment.

Last night was the only night that I was able to go straight home after only 8 hours of work. I played Stronghold which is a medieval sim. Interestingly enough, my guild on Neopets was named after the game and the images in my guild are taken entirely from game graphics and screen shots. I digress. It's an interesting game, but it is not immediately apparent how to get things done. I failed a single mission three times, but I think now I know how to win it. I like playing sim games. Oh Lise, if you are reading this, I found your copy of the Sims and will mail it over if you want.

Tonight I have choir until 8 and tomorrow I have a choir concert until some ungodly hour too. The only thing that really hurts now is that I cannot rely on sugar for an energy boost because I'm on Atkins. I'm surprised. It seems to be working. I've been on it for a week and a bit and I'm already noticing the change. Perhaps it's because I've stopped my medications. Perhaps it's the diet. It's probably a combination of both though and I'm certainly not complaining.
