So much has happened in the last 24 hours. On Thursday, I finished a large Vietnamese iced coffee at 10 pm (I know, I know). Then I went to bed at midnight. Unsurprisingly, I couldn't sleep. At some point, I fell asleep for 30 minutes, b... Read more
Got My MRI Results

Today, my physical medicine doctor called me to give me my MRI results. I don't have cancer, nor cord compression (whatever that means). Thank God!!! Since I don't have serious problems with my spine, I don't need spine surgery. I do have so... Read more

Yesterday, I found out that one of my new coworkers lives with her 89 year old father. My coworker is 54, and single. She said that the house is paid off, so the only things they need to pay for are the property taxes and low utility bills. W... Read more

I was able to use up the $51.84 that was left on my Sears gift card today online; I bought my toddler niece a pair of cute sneakers. :) I had to pay $9.85 out of pocket though, which is fine (I had been wanting to treat her to something for a wh... Read more

Tonight, at dinner, my parents and I started talking about the stock market. I mentioned that I invest in stocks, and they both laughed! My mom said that I'm wasting my money! I said that long-term investing is the way to build wealth. They ... Read more

I finally had my MRI yesterday. It was a two part study, so I had to stay still for two 30 minute sessions. I actually think I slept through parts of it. :P Now it's just a waiting game for the results. I finally finish my Prednisone tomorrow... Read more

I finally watched "The Lion King" remake on Disney Plus today. I only watched it because I wanted to hear Beyonce's solo, but the song turned out to be nothing special. Oh well. The movie was just okay (I prefer the original). I slept fi... Read more
Crazy Day

Yesterday, on the drive home, I rewarded myself with a large Vietnamese iced coffee for working another week (I have today off). I usually get a medium, but I decided to treat myself, because it was a particularly stressful week (see my last bl... Read more

I had an awful day at work. Remember that difficult guy I had to train last week? Well, (sadly) my boss instructed me to train him again today. So, he was doing a task, and I was observing him. I asked him a question, and he put his hand to ... Read more
So Hot Lately
Sunday, August 02, 2020      4 comments

LA (Los Angeles) summers are always hot. Yesterday night, I slept without a blanket with the fan on. I dislike hot weather, because I feel sweaty, and nasty. I haven't bought new clothes for a long time. All fitting rooms are closed now ... Read more

Okay, so I didn't actually "see" him...I had a telephone appointment (due to COVID-19). He was nice, but it annoyed me how he kept interrupting me. Anyway, he thinks I have a pinched nerve in my mid-back. I'm going to get an open MRI (can't b... Read more

Today has been a relaxing day. Now that the Thrift Savings Plan (the federal government's version of the 401k) added 5 new target retirement funds, I moved my investments from the L 2050 fund to the L 2055 fund, because the latter more ac... Read more

This morning, as I was heading out the door, I told my mom I didn't want to go to work. In response, my mom said I should be happy, because I get paid for working, which is true. Having a positive mindset makes all the difference! I have ... Read more
