Two fridays ago, June 1st, was Adam's last day of work. It was probably the saddest day at work I've ever had. I'm happy that he has finally figured out what he wants to do with his life, but almost all of my best memories at work involve Meera and/or Adam. It felt like I was losing one of the reasons I love my job so much.

Everyone was so down all week. I think we had at least 1-2 "Remember when Adam..." moments every day. I don't think the group has ever been this affected by someone leaving.

We finally got our labs up and running this week. It took two days to pack up the temporary rooms, unpack the permanent rooms, and get everything stocked and prepared. I pains me to say this because I've spent the last 4 months hating everything, but I kind of really like our new spaces. Having everything on one floor eliminated so much stress. Hopefully now all of my PCRs will work and I can start being crazy-productive.

I've been knitting a lot lately. Again. I'm working on a new cardigan and a baby blanket for Shane and Jenae. I love being creative, but it means I don't move around a lot. And my wrists are suffering. I need to make myself take my breaks. And start exercising again.

We're having a free HBO weekend, so Billy and I are trying to watch both seasons of Game of Thrones on HBO OnDemand. They are doing this show so well. 5 more episodes to go!

I'm alive. Not much has change in my life. I still want to write about it, but it's bed time. Again. Damn it.

Allz I'm saying is, if you are unhappy with what I spend and what I buy at the grocery store, then DO the grocery shopping, you know?

The heat in my house has made me angry and intolerant of lazy-ass bullshit.

Life, 9 days later:

I never worked out. Our AC is STILL out. It is in the upper 80's in my house every day. I'm dying. I hope we can get it fixed in the next couple of days. Billy decided he did not want to pay United Air Temp (I don't blame him). He wants to have Steve fix it instead. Paying the Family Rate is nice, but it also means that we're a "side job" and not a priority. If Steve can't fix us by the end of the week, I'm calling someone else.

My mom flew in last Thursday and left today. I've pretty much done nothing but eat and watch movies for the last 5 days. I feel huge, but happy. My mom is crazy and makes poor life decisions, but I still miss her.

My sister, on the other hand, was a henious bitch the whole weekend and I'm really disappointed in her.

3-day work week! This is going to be a terrible week. Tomorrow is Taylor's last day. Friday is Rick AND Adam's last day. I am going to cry the whole day. What am I going to do without Adam?

I'm debating on getting on the scale tomorrow and seeing my damage, or just waiting until Sunday to let my body normalize. Seriously, there isn't a favorite form of junk that I did not eat this week.

Some good things, though: Last year's shorts are really baggy! Also, Daddy put a pool up in the backyard on Sunday. Billy and I ran to Target to buy bathing suits since we didn't bring them with us. I fit into a L instead of an XL this year! Sloooow progress, but progress!!

I'm gonna go lay under a fan now.

This weekend was enjoyable. But first:

Our AC konked out on Wednesday. That was not enjoyable. The company that our American Home Shield (our home warantee servicers) hired to fix it really sucks. Billy was home sick on Thursday when the technician came. I had to take Friday off for the regional manager to come. We're waiting for the tech to call back to schedule a time to ACTUALLY come fix the AC, which means one of us will have to take off from work AGAIN. We've been very lucky that Wednesday was the only hot day. Our living room is like a cave so it stays cool but our bedroom is facing the afternoon sun, so it gets pretty stuffy up there.

Friday I got some knitting done. I'm back in a knitting kick. Saturday we went down to Fredericksburg. Radley Chevrolet was having a car show and Bee wanted to support some of his old coworkers. After that we went to Loriella park for Mackenzie's 5th birthday. I was happy to see Crystal and her family. It blows my mind that we've been friens since we were her daughter's age.

Jesse was home this weekend so we had FAMILY DATE NIGHT. We went to Otani's for dinner because I'm still trying to use all my gift cards. Stuffed my face silly but it was delicious. Then we went to Muvico to see The Avengers. OHMIGOD IT WAS SO GOOD. I love Joss Whedon, and I love comic books. We got there pretty early so we spent some time in the bar playing pool. Yay, family date night!

Billy and I ran a couple errands down there this morning then delt with traffic getting home. We've been trying to get all of our chores done for the week. I made salmon for dinner and it was delicious. Apparently Salmon Sunday is our thing now. At least it accomplishes my goal of fish at least once a week. I really want to try a halibut dish, but it is $23.99/lb!! Hopefully it will go down some now that it is starting to come into season.

I've decided to stop slacking and get back on the horse with my fitness goals. My lungs have cleared up a lot and I think I can breathe enough to work out. And I need to get back into good eating habits. We've eaten A LOT of fast food since I first got sick. And then we were just trying to eat things we have in the house. But now it's back to fruits and veggies and no sodas or nachos.

I've got a 3-day work week, then I've taken vacation until next Wednesday because my mama is coming to visit! I can handle 3 days.

Still. Still still still. STILL SICK. OMG. I mean, I do feel like it is s-l-o-w-l-y getting better but I want to be better RIGHT NOW. I'm tired of being tired. And coughing when I lay down. And I want to get back to working out before I gain all my weight back.

We're having a purge the kitchen week. I hate eating all the junk, but I don't want to go over budget this month, so we need to eat everything we can in the house and stop wasting money. Just eat all the pasta and hot dogs and pizza and get it out of here so I can stock up on fruits and veggies.

I'm back in a knitting kick. I got the buttons to finish my sweater (from February) FINALLY! I ordered supplies to start a new baby blanket for Shane and Jenae's first boy. I'm working on finishing the scarf I started during our downtime at work, and my second cardigan. I'm going to rip out what little I've knitted so far and start over down 2 sizes, since the last one I made was way too big after I started losing weight.

Billy bought Diablo III yesterday. I hear demons all the time. It's not as bad as MW3, but I'm sure it will get there eventually.

This week was really rough. I just can't recover from this cold. I've been so tired all week, and I cannot stop coughing. I tried to get back into my routine, but I couldn't keep it up. I've come home and just crashed the last three days. And now Billy is sick also. He took the last two days off from work. The plague has invaded our home.

For some reason I seem to be bound and determined to eff up Mother's Day. I ordered flowers for my mom. First, I chose the wrong date. Luckily, FTD called me and we fixed it. Then today it turns out I gave them the wrong address. Now I'm afraid she's not going to be home when they re-deliver.

Today was my first day back at work since I caught The Plague. It was rough. I was dead tired by 11am. I really didn't get a lot of work done because I was so worn out. And I couldn't stop coughing.

I'm trying really hard to get back into my routine, though. I did NOT take a nap when I got home. I made a protein smoothie, did my leg workout, and then Billy and I did Sculpt 1-2. It was fucking hard! Not working out for 10 days, geez. Can't do that again.

We cooked dinner together and it was nice! He helped me with a lot of the prep work so that we could get done quicker. Now I can devote the rest of my night to watching the Capitals!

I have been dead to the world since last Saturday night. I caught the plague. I think the doctor I saw called it a severe respiratory tract infection. I can't believe I missed a full week of work. I couldn't breathe. I couldn't talk. I couldn't sleep. All I could do was lay on the couch and be miserable. I'm starting to come out of it now. I hope it is because of the antibiotics because if I destroyed my stomach like that for no reason, Imma be pissed. I still feel like I have a minor sinus infection. I'm going to try and take it easy for the rest of the weekend, though we do need to go get groceries and a few other errands.
