I Did It!
I did it. The project has been submitted!!
I’m done…for now. You see, the crazy project has a second stage that will come up in the next few months. But the second stage will be much more normal. As in it will just fit in with my day-to-day work and not take a bazillion hours to complete. (Anyways, I digress).
So yesterday I celebrated in my own little way. I sent a total of 2 work related emails and then I took the remainder of the day off from my computer. Instead I:
- Mowed the lawn (we are no longer that house on the street).
- Went shopping and finally used up a $250 gift card from Christmas. I purchased absolutely nothing for Little MPB or Mr. MPB, which is rather rare. Instead, I spent every single penny on me.
- Got a pedicure.
- Went for an early evening walk in the park with Mr. MPB, Little MPB and Dog MPB.
Truthfully, it was delightful. It was exactly what I needed.
The only unfortunate thing that happened yesterday is that I finally admitted to myself that I have an ulcer again. This will be the fourth one in my life, 2 of my 3 previous ones have seen me lose significant weight in a short period of time due to the intense pain associated with eating most food. I’ve been struggling for about a week, but yesterday the specific ulcer pain was undeniable. So, now I’m just desperately hoping I caught it early enough to avoid a 4-6 week illness/recovery. But, truthfully, I’m pretty sure I didn’t. I’m at the point where eating anything except bread is causing significant pain (bread still doesn’t feel good, but it’s a whole heck of a lot better then anything else). Which means I am now living off water, bread, gaviscon and expired prescription medicine (I figure it’s better then nothing at the moment).
So, today I’m back to work and off to the doctor to get a new prescription.
