I started a new job last week, and have had something going on every night and day since then. Whew! And it will be at least two more weeks before I have a bit of a break. I'm taking a singing class, and it is occupying lots of my time these days, as is continuing to settle into life with Gordon, plus acting class, time with Anne, and now this job.
To top it all off, we have company this weekend, and Gordon is gone most of the weekend working sound on a show. These are friends of his, and they arrived last night and were asleep by the time I got home. So I have had three people staying in my home for the last 24 hours and I still haven't met them. They are still out tonight, too. Kinda weird!
My body has been doing strange things - I've been eating out lots, eating more than usual, gaining weight, feeling crabby and experiencing lots of PMS symptoms. I've been having lots of headaches, too, from going non-stop for weeks on end without enough sleep. I'm being mostly compliant on the BTD, but I think my body is going through lots of changes right now. New home, new job, a still new relationship, etc. It takes some time to adjust psychologically and physically, and I suspect that my eating more (and eating way more sugar than usual) is part of what's going on.
Last Friday, Gordon sent a dozen red roses to my new office. They were beautiful! My boss joked that he was 'marking his territory', and when I told him that, he said that was exactly what he was doing! It was VERY funny.
I'm getting off the sugar and overeating slowly (now that I'm aware of it). I would go cold turkey, but I've learned that is a really easy way for me to get a migraine really quickly, so I'm being a little more patient this time.
