Sometimes I hate my "get r done" mode when on my period.
Sometimes it's wonderful and the only time anything gets done.
Ya know that list of things to do you write up...and then cross some off... but the rest just sit there for weeks and weeks.
This is about the time my period just gets me going on those kinds of things.
Usually its all grown up stuff I dont want to deal with.
Being a grown up sucks.
I've been making appointments left and right. It's usually just making decisions and calling, texting, emailing, doing appointments online, lots of communication and decision making which I attempt to avoid by all means most of the month. But sure, something about blood flowing and I'm ready to communicate with ppl and make decisions. Same thing happens at the gym too, something about the blood flowing and I've got more energy and exercise much faster than normal and it doesn't get my heart rate up as fast. My outfits and hairdos always end up a little weird for about a week a month also. I suddenly want to wear jewelry and paint my nails and stuff too about once a month...Interesting tid bits you don't need to know...
This is the time I end up doing things that aren't even on my list, just a passing thought, and suddenly I have to do it. And I mean "passing thought" literally, open the fridge and one thought comes "you should clean out the fridge of the old stuff" and sure enough soon my fridge is basically empty cuz I threw out all the questionables I dared to test before, but no longer. Pass my painting stuff, a thought "I should finish that painting" and sure enough out comes my paints. Search my closet for daily wear and think "I should dump all the shirts I haven't worn lately and just get rid of 'em" and sure enough, soon I have a pile of shirts to take to D.I. That can be a wonderful thing most of the time, sometimes it gets a little carried away. But usually its in the logical zone which is ironic for me being on the rag. I've never really been one for logic...
I've been thinking about getting pictures taken of me... I haven't had nice "professional" pics taken of me since I graduated college in 2008.... It's been awhile. But then again, I've gotten much fatter since then and have no desire to do so. But recently I thought I could get a nice headshot at least and not be so self-conscious. It's about time to take one and share with the family. So I made an appointment for that. And I just know by the time the appointment comes, and I'm done with my period, that I'll be thinking "Whyy, whyy did I do this to myself?" It was the "get r done" mode. A blessing and a curse.
So far the only thing I haven't been able to get myself to deal with is my voting ballad. It sits there with all the names, I just have to fill in the bubbles (in only black or blue ink). But I don't wanna decide. I just can't do it. I have a hard time convincing myself that my vote would actually change anything.
This morning I found water at the bottom of my utility closet. Sigh. Another grown up thing to deal with. Yay for home ownership.... Getta fix it yourself...somehow... It was coming out the bottom. I wonder if the water tank froze a little bit last night and overflowed a bit like last time? I still haven't turned on my heater, even just to make sure it works for when I really need it. Maybe that would help.
It's not very often water heaters would leak from the bottom, so it has to be one of the faucets or outlets. I think its the pressure valve again. Just leaking from inside the cylinder thing instead of the pipe itself this time therefore coming out the bottom. Upon inspection of the place before I bought it we found a leak and we replaced the pressure valve just to make sure it fixed the problem before I actually bought it. Spent money on a house I hadn't owned yet. Yay. And now I'm about to do the same thing again.
Must go buy another pressure valve today sometime.... The hard part is getting the old one off. Turning off the water so my roommate can't shower, hehe. I dont know if I just don't have the right tools and just ain't strong enough... but knowing what to do and actually doing it are two different things.
My roommate is oblivious to anything that goes on around her. She can't see past her own nose most of the time. If it doesn't involve her or effect her, she doesn't care. Drive me nuts sometimes. My emotions were ranging from freaking out to anger about this problem, that it has to happen this week when I have so many plans (which is unusual for me) and she goes on and on complaining about her day like she does everyday. Oblivious to the fact the kitchen blew up around her while I'm trying to save my stuff from water damage, wet towels everywhere, tool boxes and kits everywhere. And then she goes to take a shower after a quick "so does the water heater work? Okay." I dont think she really waited for an answer. She doesn't care what the problem is as long as the water heater still 'works' so she can shower. Yeah, it works, its just leaking. It doesn't bother your life by any means, go ahead, take a shower while I'm currently trying to find the leak. -_-
And if my own problems aren't enough to keep me busy we ran out of toner on the copier this morning. Apparently this new machine we've had for a litte over a year gives little to no warning alerts for when toner is about to die. So instead it just stops printing and says "prepare a new toner". Great, just great. And of course the company can't deliver toner to us today, but they guarantee it shows up the next day.... That's helpful. So we have to go get it and pay lots of money for it. I'll see if I can get some cheaper elsewhere in the future and order it as a backup for next years lack of warning when the printer dies. This is the last day before the boss goes on UEA break so we need a printer today. -_-
