I got the blackout curtains this morning, and then went to IKEA to find a long enough curtain rod for my 10' window. The only one at Linens 'n Things that was long enough for my window was far more than I wanted to pay. The one at IKEA, which was much more my style anyway, was $12. Perfect. Also found some curtains to go over the vinyl blackout curtains and make it look nicer.
I was starving by the time I got to IKEA, so I went to the restaurant and ate some eggs and then did my shopping. The eggs were plain, but good.
When I got home, I hung the blackout curtains up over the blinds, and went to bed about 2pm, which was late for me. It was heaven - soooo dark in my room! Can't wait until I have time to get the rod attached to the wall and get them hung up properly!
Woke up about 10pm, and about 10:30 Mike knocked on the door. He'd been on a shoot today as an extra, and he was wired and wanted to tell me about his day. We talked while I got my lunch together, and then I headed off to work.
Yesterday I put in for some time off to go to NYC in a month or so to see Dr. D'Adamo about my food alleriges and other issues and to play in the city with my best friend from high school and college (who is now an MD) and my Team Lead just came over to me and told me they need a note from the doctor explaining why I'll be gone for a week! As if it is any of their business! That ticks me off - and now they won't approve it without said letter. I know that I'm leaving this job anyway. Do I NEED to be gone for a week to see Dr. D? Of course not. But I'm travelling two full days, one full day to get from the city to his office and back, and a few days to play with my friend. I've never had to justify time off for medical reasons to any employer ever, and I resent the implication that my Team Lead made that I'm not actually going to see a doctor at all. Grr.
Forgot to eat breakfast because I wasn't hungry and Mike and I were talking, and then got to work and was starving. Did have a cup of soy milk, and ate some leftover chicken lettuce wraps from PF Changes from my date the other night. Wasn't much left, though, so I'm still a bit hungry, with an hour and a half until lunch.
Did remember to bring my leftovers, though, so at least I won't end up with a tasteless turkey sandwich like I did last night. I'm drinking lots of water to try to flush out the wheat, and will be eating lots of veggies in the next few days to try to clear out my system a bit. Other than forgetting lunch, I've been doing well at avoiding the avoids the last several days.
