Well, things went very well with the accountant yesterday morning - made me very glad that I keep pretty much every receipt for pretty much everything I do! I'll be getting a very nice refund check, and we'll be doing amendments for the past three years, too, so I will be beefing up my savings account in the next few weeks. This is excellent news since it took a real beating after being unemployed for seven months last year.
I then headed home and talked to Mike for a few minutes before I headed home. I wasn't incredibly tired, but I had to sleep some because I had to babysit for a couple hours again today. I only slept about two and a half hours and woke up WELL before my alarm went off. So I got up to look online for a new W4 to fill out for work, because if this year's taxes are going to be at all like last year's, I need to change my withholdings! Couldn't find a 2004 one, but I'll ask HR here to get me one. Went to babysit, and the poor boy was so tired. I was only there 2 hours, and he was fussy and crying for about half of that, and then fell asleep on me about 30 minutes before his dad got home. It was so nice to have a baby fall asleep on me! His dad came in and remarked how cute the baby was asleep on me.
Headed back home, returned a phone call to Anne and left her a message. Then I tried to sleep, tried being the operative word.... It took me over 2 hours to fall asleep, and then I did NOT want to get up tonight! So I got less than 3 hours of sleep this evening, and I have to be relatively functional until about 4pm. I've got - get this! - a time management class in the morning (do I need this or what?!?!), then a singing lesson in the early afternoon. I'll also go to my PO Box and mail the hard copies of my tax returns. THEN I can head home and take a nap. Tomorrow evening is TV and girl time with Anne, and the weekend will be spent cleaning up my apartment and going to the movies, relaxing, and pulling my old tax returns out of my storage area so that I can amend them in the coming weeks.
Blood type diet stuff - there's not much to tell, actually. Somehow what I've managed to eat the past couple days has been BTD acceptable, even good for me, but I haven't been eating much. I'm still fighting the crud I had earlier this week, and yesterday I just wasn't very hungry, so I didn't eat much. Had a salad with goat cheese and turkey sausage and snap peas on it for lunch last night, and then had mango juice and trail mix in the morning. Mostly I've been really thirsty, so I've been pushing the water, which is good because hopefully it will flush out the bloating I've been experiencing this week. Hasn't helped so far, but it will. Got to work tonight and had a turkey sausage link, and will have some salad later.
