So, it's been a hectic two weeks. First off, just got my approved timecard and realized I have over 30 hours in overtime in the last two weeks. But I have a gaming convention coming up soon with my sweetie so that means more money for more geeky goodness. :-)
I also bought a kindle, and so far I adore it. I even made a nifty 'hitchhikers guide to the galaxy' cover for it.
So my dad has been kinda sick since the new year. I'm 25. He's 74. However about 2 weeks ago he wasn't able to walk anymore, wasn't eating, couldn't even use his hands or anything. So, my mother had to call an ambulance and we were worried about ALS, since most of the men in. His family had it. To say I had a few mental breakdowns was putting it mildly. I even found myself praying..which is odd. Typically, I follow my fathers theory on religion...there is a higher power out there, so don't be a dick, but whoever they are, they don't need to hear you whining to them about every little thing, especially since most of it you can do yourself.
Luckily, it is not ALS. My dad has had gout his whole life. We found out he stopped taking his meds 6 months ago. The specialist who came in said it was the worst gout attack she has seen in her over 30 years of practice. They pulled over 40 cubic centimeters of fluid out of one knee joint alone. They have him in a nursing home/home rehab until he can walk again, since my parents house and a wheelchair are not an option...yay little polish houses.
Due to this, and a Lot of back and forth to the hospital and rehab has made my eating habits kinda suck. But I've been pretty good at work.
I haven't been weighing myself lately, but I know in the last 6 months my high has been 384.2 and my low has been 376.0
So I jumped on the scale today. 380.4...so I have gained some weight, which is depressing, but I'm trying to keep things in perspective....to have 2 major holidays and then this happen has been a lot, on top of a ton of work hours. It could have been worse. I meant to join Ballys but the cheap offer they made expired about a week after the crap with my dad started...so I'm going to have to wait until the next one. Luckily, they are pretty persistant.
I suppose I should start tracking my measurements too...but maybe I'll wait. I can't even believe I'm posting my weight online.
Anymoot, I suppose I should stop blogging and go get some stuff done, seeing as we're about to be hit by a snowpocolypse :-) perhaps next year I'll be able to ski...it's an exciting thought...
