My ADD medication ran out over the weekend so I’m feeling the effects of coming off of it today as I’m in a bit of a fog right now. I’ve got prescriptions waiting for me at the office that I need to pick up so I should be back to normal come tomorrow, but right now I’m having trouble focusing on anything for very long. This is going to be a rough week at work as it is because I need to finish up this Disaster Recovery documentation I’ve been working on and that’s been a whole lot of no fun. Plus there’s a couple of other pressing issues I’m dealing with this week that I have no idea how I’m going to solve. I gave myself a migraine last night worrying about it that persisted until I got to work this morning. I so want to go back to doing tech support again. I really am not cut out to be a planner. Anyway, not sure how much posting I’ll get in this week as I’m actually going to be busy at work for a change.
I still haven’t set up the Christmas tree, but I’ll probably do that this evening once I get home from work so that Courtney can decorate it and Melvin can have fun destroying it. This’ll be our first Christmas with a cat in the apartment, but I have lots of experience from growing up with cats so I’m sure we’ll be able to handle it.
Thanks to a little help from my father-in-law we’re going to be able to have a few gifts under the tree for Courtney this year. She’s a good kid so I was pretty upset about the possibility of the tree being bare for the first time ever. She would’ve understood as she’s aware of how tight money is right now, but I still wouldn’t have been happy about it. She even offered to put what she’s managed to save up to buy Christmas gifts with toward the bills. I told her that wouldn’t be necessary, but I appreciated the generous offer.
Speaking of which, I need to get a move on and do some shopping within the next week or so or there still won’t be anything under the tree. We did most of our shopping last year online, but there’s probably not enough time to do that this year. Most of what’s on her Amazon Wish List is anime/manga titles that aren’t currently available anyway so once I’ve whittled that out I’m not sure how much stuff will be left.
Lastly, I’ve been asked to once again play Santa for our building’s holiday party this Thursday. I did this the first year I was here because the guy who usually did it had moved to a new building. Then he came back and the last two years he handled the duties again, but this year he’s too busy so I’ve been called in as an Emergency Backup Santa. I even come with my own hat.
