This cold is affecting my brain functioning today so I’m trying to keep my work tasks as simple as possible. So far today, I have accomplished one thing and that was clearing out our financial spreadsheets and replacing all of the real numbers with zeros to get them ready for the new year. Now that that is done, I’m not sure what to move onto next.
After picking Zach up from my sister’s house lastnight, I really needed to relax for a bit. Since we finished up season 2 of Grey’s Anatomy last weekend, I’m ready to start watching the new season. I pulled up the the ABC website, picked up my knitting project, and prepared to indulge in a couple of episodes before I went to bed. However, the website kept freezing up and basically told me that my internet connection was not fast enough to stream the show. I have broadband cable. There is no reason that it shouldn’t be able to accommodate streaming the show. I have no idea what was slowing down my connection and I went to bed pissed off and disappointed. I hope I can get it working because I really want to get caught up and be able to watch the rest of the season.
The good part was that after I managed to quit coughing I did actually get some sleep lastnight. I think I actually slept pretty solidly between about 11:00 and 3:00 and that is much better than I’ve done lately. I slept off and on from 3:00 to 6:30 and Zach didn’t wake me up all night so I guess you can call that a good night. Of course, when I woke up with my eyes almost swollen shut I didn’t appreciate the sleep quite as much.
Zach didn’t want to be left at day care today. In fact, from the minute I got him out of bed this morning he didn’t want to let go of me. He gets so clingy sometimes and while I know day care is good for him, I still feel guilty leaving him there sometimes. I hate that I don’t get to spend more time with him and that when I do get to spend time with him I am always so tired.
I’ve been trying to expose myself to some new music the last couple of days so I’ve been listing to TV on the Radio, Ben Kweller, and Sufjan Stevens. Next on the list is As Fast As. So far I’m digging Ben Kweller. I’m still undecided on Sufjan Stevens, although I do dig a few songs. TV on the Radio was just okay. I’m looking forward to listening to As Fast As because I did like the one song of theirs that I have heard before. Feel free to share any suggestions for other artists I should check out.
This officially ends the greatest blog post ever. Enjoy (the fact that it is finally over).
