Seven years ago, yesterday, i officially became manager of the computer operations group at the Minnow.

I've caught up on the sleep lost then. I am happier with the work i am doing now, and i am thankful for that. For a moment, a wave of impostor syndrome washes over me, as it often does. It is not remarkable at this time: when i have to start wrestling with it i suppose there will be much more.

Is there a particular sinus infection symptom that signals, "Now you can ask for antibiotics"?

I'd love to go flower hunting today, but, oh, i am again feeling under the weather. I rested off and on yesterday, and i feel wiped out after making waffles. I threw all the flaxseed meal we had into the mix: i don't know how many years it had been sitting around and these were just for me. I don't think i'll replace it.

Dear [primary care provider],

Thank you so much for helping with that paperwork for when i was sick in late December. It was somewhat confusing how the Health Records division managed things, but it all worked out.

I'm writing now to ask if it would be appropriate to try a round of antibiotics for my sinuses. Collapse )

I'm tired of the discomfort and drainage.

Thanks for your advice,

me

Besides sinus pain, other disappointments yesterday included that i had not heard back from the career counsellor whose website i liked, and the "Mikey" career counsellor missed our 2 pm call and tried to call after 5. This morning i contacted the first career counsellor through her form on her website. That produced results! I have an appointment for a 4:30 pm phone call with her. I have also agreed to chat with "Mikey" on Thursday.

Well, i stayed up late. New yarn arrived: Jojoland Rhythm. It's for a simple pattern -- covering a purse Christine loves but which has flaking leatherette. The purse is a simple square so the cover will be straightforward. Christine watched a Mission Impossible movie, and i stitched up around a hundred yards of yarn while watching with her.

Meanwhile, i forgot that the Quarterly install is tonight. I may get called in a few hours about an emergency.

Uff, i'm an idiot. I knew there was something i was forgetting.
