I guess someone decided to go ahead and spam my old ij account. I completely forgot the user name but still remembered the password. I haven't updated this one in awhile so I guess I thought no better time then now. I'm at work. My eyes are glazing over. No idea why they burn they just do. Waiting to see what the verdict is on this patient. The schedule looks packed. I wonder if I'll get a lunch break?
Edit: OMG I got to take a break! Wowie wow wow. I haven't taken a lunch break at work in a few days. It was nice to finally get to eat my sandwich. I went to get a coke from the vending machine and it gave me diet coke which tastes nasty! I don't know why I went for the machine on the left. I usually get it from the machine on the right. I should've guessed that it wasn't going to give me what I wanted when I saw the Mello Yello sitting on top of the machine...

|03:04 pm - Snow!|
Its the first snow of the year! The flakes were big and fluffy when I walked out the door to go to work this morning. Each time the weatherman would predict snow it would never happen and I'm surprised that they got it right this time. I don't know how long its going to last. I know that the last time I checked(which was right before I got into work) that the snow was sticking but I don't know about now. Still got another hour and a half to go till the day is over(pending we don't have any more people walk in) but we'll see what happens.

I am so glad that I don't have to go to work until later this week. I don't know what it was but these past couple of days have been so busy. Maybe it has something to do with Thanksgiving or something. Either way I was getting out way later than I normally would. The other lady that works at the office decided that she wanted more hours at work and if she got more hours they would cut into mine. My boss said that he couldn't do that and that and she decided to look for another job. He doesn't want me to leave cause I've been there about as long as he has and I pretty much know the system of how things should be run there. A lot of people have been coming in to fill the other spot and I've had to explain to them what they'd have to do. Things have been moving in a slower pace at work cause of that too. I basically get to figure out if they are the right match or not cause they'd have to do what I do when I'm not there.
The last couple of patients for each day happened to be new contact lens wearers. I get to teach them how to insert the lenses making sure that they put them on the right way, to tell them how to clean them, how to store them, the recommended amount of time to use them(NO SLEEPING) and the most important of all how to take them out. I have to spend enough time explaining a lot of stuff to them to make sure that they know what they are getting into. You really have to be motivated to want to wear them. They aren't for everyone and you could tell after the first couple of tries if they person is really interested in doing all that work. Most people just don't want to wear glasses or they want the colored ones or something so they have some kind of a reason. I have to be very patient with them and show them that if they keep at it they too could wear contacts. After awhile being at work for longer than normal can take its toll on you. I just had to keep reminding myself that I would have a nice break before I had to go back to work again. Sometimes we get people who call in or who show up and end up acting like jerks and you gotta try to keep your composure as best as you can. Just glad that I don't have to go back for awhile. A couple of days off is nice. I don't have a normal weekend like most people.
Little by little I am trying to get my Xmas shopping done. I haven't really gotten much yet but some of the stuff I'm making and I need to get started on it lol. I made Jeremy's nephew a blanket and I hope he likes it. It didn't take quite as long as the one I made for Andrew. Its for a little baby but I didn't make too small either. I want it to at least grow with him.

|03:48 pm - Lol oops I forgot|
I realized that I didn't post any pictures of the crocheted Ninetendo blanket that I made for Andrew.
I hope he likes it. I used an old Mario Paint book that my brother had to find the sprite images. I had no idea how I was going to put it together but I think this was the best way. Each image is made out of 1"x1" squares. Each big square is 16x16 squares. I have no idea how much yarn I used but it was a lot lol. Its really warm so it should be good for winter.

I haven't posted in awhile(surprise surprise). I finished working on the Nintendo blanket for my brother. It ended up being huge. I hope he'll like it. It took me about 5 months to make. It was supposed to be for his birthday but since it took so long I'll give it to him for Christmas. Its nice and warm too. I honestly didn't think that I would have the patience to finish it but I did.
I'm at work right now with nothing to do really. Not that many people really know that the dr.'s office is open on Sunday so there haven't been too many people stopping in. I pretty much did what I needed to do already and I still got another 4 hours left to go.

|12:51 pm - So for less money I was able to obtain extra stripe|
2 more days til my birthday.
I can't believe that another year has past. I don't know what I want for my birthday. I don't think I need anything. I think just getting to spend time with people that I care about is enough. Getting to go to the beach is a bonus.
Jeremy got me a present early. I still haven't got his present yet cause I don't get paid until today. He got me State on DVD. I loved watching that show growing up. Thats when MTV still had good shows to watch. I haven't watched it yet but I am looking forward to watching "Blueberry" and "Free Market Store" lol

Its Thursday.. I'm stuck at work. It hasn't been too bad of a day so far. The only thing that is bothering me is my ankle. I hate being accident prone. I was leaving the pool on Monday night and as I was walking out of the locker room I slipped and twisted my ankle up. I hadn't messed up my ankle this bad in awhile. Its been hurting to walk on it. Yesterday I should've put ice on it and I didn't and now I am paying the price.
I can't wait for this weekend(after work that is). Going to the beach for a couple of days. I still haven't figured out what to get Princess for his birthday. My birthday is on Monday and at least I'll be near the sand. I hope the weather is going to be nice over there.

Hope that everyone is having fun at Otakon! I'm stuck at work and its been pretty busy. Not too much has been going on. I finished 3 of the 4 designs for my brother's blanket. I got just the feather next. I don't know how I am going to finish making the blanket. I've been trying to finish the power ups before I thought of the background. Btw my bed is a full size and I was going to make this fit for a twin bed..I guess I shouldn't worry about it not being big enough for the bed lol.
I saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince at midnight opening day. I really liked it , it seemed better than the last one. I thought that they could've added some more stuff to the movie but at the same time I can understand why they didn't. That movie was pretty long as it is. Not everything could be jammed packed into the movie. There was a lot of stuff that I was happy to see such as seeing the shop that the Weasley joke shop.

I haven't posted in a bit. Right now I am at work. It was really busy this morning but for now its kinda slowed down. I'm sure that its going to pick up right before I leave. It always does. I had to wait forever to get in the building this morning. Usually the doors are open either before or at 10 am. Today I had to wait a while for the doors to open. When I got here there was no one in the optical department to help with inquiries so they all kept showing up to ask me about stuff. I don't know too much about all that so I tried to help them as best as I could. There wasn't anyone here till about like 11:30 am.
Right now I'm trying to get used to wearing contacts. I had tried them before a couple of months ago but the amount of astigmatism in right eye is so bad that each time I get a trial lens we have to order it to get it back in stock and that takes forever for us to get prescription. So I've been wearing these lenses for about a couple days. I haven't had too much problems with them except that one lens seems a little blurry. I told myself that I'd never get used to the idea of poking myself in the eye to put on contacts and now I have. Its weird. Now I help people at work to try and get over that fear and do the same thing. Hopefully this prescription works out well enough so that I can actually start wearing them sometimes. I like my glasses but sometimes they slip off my face if I am not careful enough. Its nice to have another option.
I saw the Hangover and that movie was hilarious! I don't think I've laughed that hard at a movie in a long time. There is only one word to describe that movie...wow just wow. My brother Andrew stayed at the house for a couple days and he got to go to the pool while he was here. I made my dad some carrot cake cupcakes for fathers day.
Other than that I haven't really done much. I'm still trying to work on my brother's Nintendo blanket. I think that I should have it done by Christmas. I've been going to the pool when the weather permits and on the days I have off. Other than that nothing too interesting. I wanna get Punch Out for the Wii but the last time I was going to I had to get groceries. I think groceries beats out getting a game.
