The Week in Review 4-18-2008

Sorry that this was a slow blogging week. I've been extremely busy and just haven't had time to sit down and blog. *Sigh*

Medically - This was another good week on the blog front. Other than my eye being aggravated by the combination of my allergies and my trigeminal issue it has been rather uneventful in this arena. I have to keep using moisturizing drops on my right eye though. It gets dry anyway because of my trigeminal and when you put allergy meds on top of it... you know it's bad when you eye sticks to your eye lid.

Emotionally - I'm just going to avoid this subject today for various reasons. This was not a good emotional week... well I shouldn't say that because it only was bad for a few days over the weekend. Let's just say, I'm putting it behind me and choose not to think about it.

I guess this is related to emotions as well. I've been fighting my insurance company AGAIN because they can't keep my account straight. How hard is it to look at my benefits and pay accordingly? I have had to call them on the exact same issue three times now. They still are not sorting it out right. At least I've got a couple others resolved. I am so mad right now it's just pathetic. As if I need any more stress in my life. (This goes without being said that I should just drop it with them and pay what they are saying I owe since I am going to max out my out of pocket this year anyway. It would be easier but it's the principle behind the thing and I don't want them coming back next year, when I don't plan on maxing it, and saying that it is the same as this year....)

Mentally - I have made good progress at work even though the plan I have set out for the next six weeks is going to be impossible. At least I have a plan and goals to work towards, even if I don't accomplish them. If I don't get them done, my goals with me good documentation for the guys at work so that they know what is still up in the air.

I have also continued progress at home although I'm struggling to finish my planner book. I guess I just need to force myself to do it but I feel good physically and have lots of energy right now so I'd rather work on things like the computer room. It'll get done. Nothing gets things done like a hard deadline.

Physically - As I said above, this has been a good week physically. I feel good and I have lots of energy. I have also done my exercises when I've not been so busy that I worked until bed time. I plan on getting more focused on this next week. I can really feel the work I've put in on them. :)

Family - I've not really got anything to say on this or at least nothing I wish to get into.

Oh, wait, John's birthday was yesterday. Happy Birthday, LOVE!!!

Play - My son has been having fun with soccer. He's been doing pretty well this year.

We have a dance this saturday that we are planning on attending.

The tribal wars game I play is getting interesting. I dropped out of worlds 12 and 13. 12 was just getting to be too time consuming and in the end we were losing a war and soon our villages anyway. In 13, I just finally got fed up with it. I took a village fair and square and some guy asked if he could have it since he was trying to move to the area. Me, being the nice gal that I am, agree. Well, several hours before his attack is to arrive, one of his tribemates attacks the village, destroying the troops from another village I had there. I couldn't see the point in someone getting free shots on the village so I was waiting to move them. Apparently, getting 500 troops wiped out is my payback for being a nice gal. I decided it wasn't worth starting over and left the world.

Then last night the ultimate knife in the back occurred in my only still active world of 10. While I was away at work, someone whom is an ally and that I thought was a personal ally, took one of my villages and began working on another. I have no idea why he turned on me because he didn't respond to any of my mails... shows me what kind of coward he is. Anyway, I was proud of myself for weathering off his attacks the way I did. He lost 60000+ troops. :) He was also promptly dismissed from his tribe since he attacked me. His tribe and my tribe are allies. Anyway, I'm hoping to take my one village back from him and maybe I'll be the recipient of a few more before it is all said and done.

I have also been working on my "brain games" again. I'll report when I have a few sets of results and possibly a graph.

A final thing or two to post. I promise I'll post a better post on this during the week. Illinois ground was shaking a bit today. We had a 5.2 earthquake and a 4.5 tremor along with a handful of smaller ones. There doesn't appear to be any major damage in my area. I'll give a full report later in the week. There was something else I was going to report on too but I forgot what it is. I'll try to be better at posting next week. I have a ton to say just don't have the time to sit down and do it.
