Human

Well, we're still on the blood pressure roller coaster, but my numbers came down last night - so there is a correlation between my being at work and the numbers going up. I feel somewhat better overall, but my exhaustion is still sticking around.

I've been working really hard at hydrating and so far, I'm doing pretty good. I'm not quite to the level I need to be, but I'm getting little in a little bit more each day. The one thing that stinks is how cold I get - I literally was sitting at my desk shivering today.

My eating is getting better too - so all that's left is to get my exercise train rolling... I'm hoping to get that moving again this weekend... I'll have to start small and work my way back up, but it'll feel good to get moving again.

Work has been incredibly insane, but with the projects I've been working on - I've instituted "Quiet Day" where no one in my department can contact me during those 8 hours so that I can make some progress toward my 90 goal of cleaning the database. It's a beautiful thing... it's like the only day during the entire work week that I am able to get anything done. I'm not sure how it happened so quickly, but seriously... no one in the department can complete a project without me having something to do for them.

It's good to be needed, but when I have my own goals to complete... it gets really tough. Not to mention the nonstop emailing... seriously... I get so frustrated that I get copied on every single email that they send - even when it has NOTHING to do with me. Is it too hard to just tell me what I need to know when I need to know it?

Anyway, things are completely nuts at the office which makes me completely overprotective of my few hours at home in the evening. I wish that there were more of them, but my body is still shutting down by 9 every night... so I only have about 3 or 4 hours of time in the evenings... and some nights - like last night - I crash out on the couch by 7:30! How embarrassing!!

I'm still praying for Baby Harper - from what Kelly's blog says - Harper is doing a bit better today which is great news! Praise God for having his hand on that family... he has shown some amazing things through their story. Click on the "Praying for Harper" icon at the top of the page and it'll take you over to Kelly's blog.

Also my friend Renee has written a post about what her family has been going through the last few weeks... her family has been struck with several deaths lately, and now they are also struggling through another hardship. If you remember a couple of weeks ago - I asked for ya'll to pray for a friend that was going through something personal... well it was Renee. Extra prayers are always welcomed in our lives... so please keep her in yours for the time being.
