bronchitosaurus rex

sunday:

why the fuck are the supermarkets empty on a sunday???
serious shopping disaster rush 
kgb and co visit for a lovely afternoon - their baby is super-cute!
a quick walkabout to get apartment numbers and real winter mittens
horseman visit media swap
a quiet evening including stretching and developing a cough

monday:

rough night, calling in sick
late start but feeling a bit better, apartment hunting with an offensively pushy, racist punjabi
sleeping on the couch
shopping, amazing sammich time and a good talk with SxS

tuesday:

a shitty night turning into the shittiest, eventually getting my words right and not being able to figure out how

insane, creepy nightmares ending with lots of spiders on power cables

a better morning, but a late, hurried start; taking gym gear even with a tender neck

45 minutes on the elliptical, not certain if that aggravated my neck or not
good afternoon progress

my first performance review: raise! bonus! and very grateful to my manager for bringing the evaluation forward or i would only have been able to receive the increase from 2016. it's nice to be called a "key player" and to be hinted at to start acting like a lead

awesome apartment viewing
shopping fails and second night of great homemade dinners

sudden exhaustion

wednesday:

dragging myself to bed through a mandatory shower
midnight toilet time wasting but very real sinus / chest issue and indigestion 

waking up early after a short difficult night but getting into the groove easily (minus being sad to learn that a cousin passed away on tuesday)
a pleasantly smooth passport release mission in spite of a shitty taxi driver and not enough chairs

forgotten medical aid card, a good day at work with a delicious lunch and a good couple of games of lunch money with hac

an evening of slowly doing all the things that *should* be routine

thursday:

not a bad night, waking up to a serious purge
rushing to pick up gd's health insurance card before rushing off to renew mine, squeezing into a stalled metro car and being grateful for such a short delay

incredibly short, efficient and pleasant passport canada experience, only soured by having forgotten my $@&%#ING passport at home which i needed for the next stop

returning home through sheepish crowds, some of whom for which a special place in hell *must* be reserved 

super-smooth health insurance renewal followed by paranormal disturbances in the metro
keeping my coughing under control the whole morning until entering a crowded car where something triggered a fit

newk'd walking out on his girlfriend disgracefully + public fallout

triggering gd's wrath while trying to reassure her about sunday's slam, being rescued by "be more dog"

drawn out design discussions

a crazy blizzard, a good evening, finally finishing heroes, publishing *something*. heroes: i'm not sorry i watched it, the story was good overall although the writing was absolutely infuriating most of the time.

yesterday:

great, slow morning
lunch money break, great with two more players
telling some of the team about the pregnancy
making tangible progress!

todd glass is great

this morning so far:

getting to bed late, waking up tough due to shallow breathing and forcing myself like a yoga exercise

gd wardrobe fail, preparing for laser treatment
