Headaches and Stupid Experiments

So I have had the worst headache the last few days. I have no idea why. It starts between my eyes and migrates to my forehead and before I know it it has encased my entire head and starts moving down my neck and back. I don't think it's a migraine, because I don't feel nauseated and I'm only a little bit sensitive to light and sound, so basically I'm in the dark as to what in the world is wrong with me. So, needless to say, prescription pain meds have been my friend. I got a scrip from my doc for Imitrex, too, but it makes me feel WEIRD. It's hard to's like the pain that's mostly in my head is diluted and spread throughout my whole body while making me feel heavy, like I can't lift my arms. Add in some wooziness and confusion, and there you have it. So I try to stick to the plain old pain meds.

The last few days have been totally annoying at work. There were some extra tests I had to run, which sounded easy when I volunteered to do them, but in practice turned out to be a nightmare. It involved titrations where you can't really determine for sure where the endpoint is, so even though I got results and reported them, I don't feel confident in them at all, and I feel kinda bad even reporting them, but considering the circumstances, I did the best I could. I took some pictures, so I might post them next time and explain the test.

I also had to do another ash today on a product that REEKS when you heat it up. It smelled so bad that after I left to go home I could still smell it on myself so I jumped straight into the shower when I got home.

I finished my pair of socks and I finished my sweater. Two FO's in two days! It's a record. I'm wearing my socks and they are super comfortable, and not terribly ugly for my first complete set of socks. I wore my sweater to dinner at Scott's parents' house yesterday.

I am almost ready to start Mim's red socks. I found a pattern at that I like and seems simple enough that I can figure it out. Today I got some chunky yarn and big needles and tried out the lace pattern so I could practice on big yarn before I try to do it on sock yarn on size 0 dpns. I want to make sure the stitches are all nice and neat. I really want these socks to turn out well.

Scottie made me dinner tonight because he is an angel. He also bought me a whole bunch of CDs off of my Amazon wishlist because he spoils me terribly.

We got Dirty Jobs Collection 4! We've been watching for a couple of days now. I forgot how much of a crush I have on Mike Rowe. And that's saying something, since I don't do the whole celebrity crush thing.

I can't wait until Friday. First of all, because it's Friday (and today was definitely a Monday...), and second of all, because we'll start our next round of hCG injections! I'm so excited to lose more weight. This past six weeks have been interminable! I thought the six weeks during the injection phase were long, but I tell you what, it seems even longer when all of a sudden you're not losing weight! So, by this time next week I will be losing weight and I think just a week in and I will weight about as much as I weighed throughout high school and college, and from there I don't even know what I will look like because I've been overweight since 9th grade. I'm excited. And I'm determined to change my lifestyle and eating habits to maintain this weight loss for the rest of my life.
