Blargh, part deux

I feel crappy today. I don't know if I'm coming down with something of what -- yesterday my stomach was giving me trouble again (sharp, stabby pains, ouch) and I was tired; and despite a pretty decent night's sleep, today I'm washed out, my stomach hurts, my throat hurts, and a LOT of Tylenol seems to have finally gotten rid of the headache. I want to lay down and maybe have some plain ol' chicken soup.

But I can't go home because I'll lose my overtime (I'll still get the hours I've worked, but they'll be straight time if I take any sick leave). And right now, we NEED that overtime.

I'm also freezing; even colder than usual in the Exxxtreme Air Conditioning. I went outside at break to warm up, but I can't take the laptop outside because in the Arizona sun I can't see the screen...

If I can't get my time organized here soon I really ought to quit the gym. I'm paying $25 a month for something I haven't used in WEEKS because of various things (mostly, aforementioned overtime, which helps pay for it).

They will be able to fix the truck for much less than I worried it would cost, but it will still mean I face another two weeks with no money at all after I pay for my share of the mortgage payment. Oh, well. Easy come, easy go.

Four more hours before I can go home and collapse.

Yuck! It sounds like a nasty summer cold. I've been tired, but it's from not sleeping well. Brain busy, body pooped. This morning I also woke up at 5:00 a.m. and had to use Afrin for congestion. Gak, gak, gak...I sound like a Martian. ;-)

Yay for the truck costly less than feared! My first paycheck at the new place went for new tires, but at least I know I have decent wheels under me.

I'm so glad my desk is by the warm south window. Warm! I love warm! I don't know why some places use so much air conditioning.

Always good to have good tires!

I miss the warm windows, but at least we have some nice places outside to go and sit for a while!

glad the truck isn't as pricey as feared

I'm shocked your gym is that cheap

My old gym was $12 a month and had a more convenient location, but they went away...

wow, the last time I belonged to a gym back in 2000 it was 40$/ month
Jul. 13th, 2013 03:16 am (UTC)
Yeah, I couldn't do that one.

Bally went up slowly during the time I was there, but I had a good discount for my work; LA Fitness gave me a deal, too, but I don't remember what all it was.

But $40? WOW.

Bally's was 40$ in the mid-90's in OH. I was a member until they closed the pool in the one closest to me and then I had to get a doctor's excuse to get out of my membership because they purposely put them at 24 miles apart in Columbus and you could only get out of it if there wasn't another in a 25 mile radius

I can't remember, but I believe I started at Bally in around 2002, and for, I think, $15 with the discount from work, which they lowered to $8 when I bitched about their policies, then it slowly went up until it was $12, and then they closed this branch and gave me that "25-mile radius" thing, but I quit because I wasn't going to drive to the "conveniently located branch" in upper north Phoenix.

But I hadn't been on a contract in years, so it was pretty easy to end the membership.

wow, wonders why the pricing is SO different. Yeah I hated Bally's policies.

The private gym I belonged to in Madison WI had won multiple awards for innovated programs. I miss it
