There's no logical explanation for today's title in this entry. It just was what came to mind when I was thinking about what to title it, and since Monday was a rather routine day, it seemed appropriate.
I got home from work and did a little Pilates and yoga, called the IRS to request some "tax return transcripts" from 2000 and 2001. I can find EVERY other piece of paper related to my taxes for these two years, but not the actual returns themselves. I know I e-filed, so I probably have the returns on one of my hundred or so disks, but I'd rather wait a week or so to get the hard copy from the IRS than spend countless hours trying to find them. I'm surprised at myself, too, for not having a print out of them with the rest of my information - I consider myself fairly organized in that department! The woman I dealt with was friendly, efficient, and we had a nice chat as she pulled my information. Who knew that the IRS had such good customer service! So I should have those within a week or so, and then I can file my amendments for those years. Yay!
Went to bed around 10am, and woke up around 6pm. I slept better yesterday than I usually do during the day, which was great. Woke up and went to an acting network meeting last night that was VERY informative and motivational. I am just ITCHING to get some real work in the industry now! I'm planning just how that is going to happen.....
Came home and talked with Mike about some acting stuff related to tonight's meeting, and we discussed some other acting-related stuff, too. I finally got off the phone about 10:15, and was bummed because I'd hoped to have enough time to call Brad tonight to see how his weekend skiing was, but I didn't want to call him that late. I'll try tomorrow night since I should be home and awake tomorrow night. So I did most of my Pilates workout before showering and heading in to work tonight. I haven't done any exercise to speak of in the last week or so because I was fighting whatever crud I had, so I'm trying to be better about it this week. I want to get back to the gym this week, too, but work, sleep, and acting-related events seem to take up all my energy, so to actually LEAVE THE APARTMENT to go exercise seems like a monumental task for some reason.
Food-wise, I really haven't been hungry the last couple of days. I'm just not interested in food, which is good and bad given my recent blood sugar issues. I'm making myself eat periodically, but not forcing the food down, either. I think appetites come and go anyway. Some days I can eat several large meals and my tummy is still growling, and other days I'm stuffed with a single dainty snack. So far I haven't had any blood sugar episodes in several days, so that's good news. I had some mango for a snack a little while ago, and a smoothie for 'breakfast' when I arrived at work at midnight. I've got some blueberries, pecans, and yogurt for lunch, and more mango for later. BTW, in my smoothie I used the blood type O protein powder that I just got from NAP, and it's got 20 grams of protein in it! I like the protein powder quite a bit - it does blend easily, but is a little bit grainy in texture, though not so grainy as to be disgusting. I used it, the Harmonia, a little vitamin C, some grapefruit seed extract, some psyllium powder (I never seem to eat enough fiber, so every little bit helps!), a banana, and pineapple juice for my smoothie. The harmonia makes it kind of a disgusting brown color when combined with the other stuff, but it tastes pretty good!
Anne had two dates with two different men in the last two days - she said she was learning from ME! I still haven't heard her report though, so I am looking forward to hearing about them! : )
