I pay these people?

Finally made it to the allergist (a week late). Used my new phone instead of my Zune and was thoroughly entertained for the half hour I had to wait. Do you know how many times I listened to Bree Sharp sing "David Duchovny"??? I really want to use a clip of that as my ringtone. When I went back in to have my injection sites checked the nurse gave me a bag full of Advair samples. Woot! Even with insurance they're $45 each - so free is good :O) As I told Glen "I made money by going to the allergist" (ya know, cause I saved the $$$)

Called the surgeon's office to see if they would squeeze me in early and they said to come over. That worked out cause my allergist was right next door. For some reason, the surgeon who I've liked up til now seemed kinda cranky. Oh well, that was the last of the injection series so I won't have to go back for 6 mths.

Pretty much immediately, the pain started in my knee and went down to my foot. So, I didn't make it to the beauty supply store. I did really want to pick up some Argan oil. I hear you can get a little bottle for $1.95. It's a good way to try it cause I don't want to invest in the big bottle if I don't think it'll work on my hair. I do use Ojon on my hair (which works beautifully) but it is terribly expensive. Maybe the Argan oil will be a good replacement?

Earlier in the day I picked up some Glucosamine Chondroitin for my Mom. CVS had it BOGO and I had already gotten some for myself (I'll try anything to stop the pain). They also had BOGO for Revlon so I picked up the baked mineralized Brighten and Bronzer. I have the Brighten - which I LOVE and she was about to replace her Laura Geller bronzer (which is $35!) so I bought her these which I HEAR are the exact dupes for Laura Geller's.

Came home and found out that Glen had skipped his job loss support group. That, combined with the pain and PMS made me quite bitchy. Muscle relaxers did knock me out for awhile and Glen has been VERY UNDERSTANDING. He even went to get me cookies to "help the PMS". Sweet...

We did tackle organizing the closet further which entailed MUCH vacuuming (which is horrible for my allergies and asthma) and throwing away shoes (gasp!). But, the closet does look great. Tomorrow I hope to tackle moving the furniture and setting up my vanity.

Sephora haul pic

obviously I have a problem..

up too late

I really wish my body could adjust to a schedule. A schedule that allowed me to be a part of the REAL world. Sure, it's pretty normal for an artist to be up all night, but it sucks that I have such a hard time getting things done during the day. Tomorrow (today). Friday - whatever - I have to go get my allergy shots. I hate doing it cause it's not a quick thing. After you get the shots you have to hang out to make sure you don't have an allergic reaction. The waiting room is always full of loud sneezey kids. Ewwww... I don't touch the magazines, I bring my Zune and a book. After that I need to go get the 3rd Euflexxa shot it my knee. Although I definately improve after them it does hurt for a day or 2 after. But then I don't get any more for 6 mths. woot!
Of course my appts. aren't scheduled together so I need to find something to do with myself that won't entail shopping. If I can possibly go home inbetween I will. Cause then Glen can come with me, we'll get lunch and after I get my knee injection he can drive (while I whine).

Playing with my new phone, filling it up with music. I was excited to shoot video with it (and I have) but I can't DO anything with the video now. I guess I need to use Quicktime, but something isn't right. Plus, how will i edit it if I can't use Windows movie maker? Grrr...
About the SCHEDULE. I really want to implement "work hrs" during the day where I sit down at my drafting table or easel and just work. Waiting for "inspiration" is just a cop out. Showing up is the key. I don't expect 8 hr days, maybe 10-1 and 3-6? If I just had a coach to whip me into shape.
