I’ve been in bed sick all weekend. I either have a very bad head cold, or I have the flu. I feel like shit, and I can’t stop coughing. No work for me today, I’m just going to the doctor.

World AIDS Day

Today is the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day. Despite all the progress we’ve made in the past 30 years, LGBTQ communities are still disproportionately affected — especially people of color — and myths and stigma still run rampant. Learn about HIV/AIDS and consider getting tested.

The Fall

Yesterday as I was leaving for the Armistice Day celebration in town, I slipped on the icy outside steps leading from my apartment and fell on my back. I should have been paying closer attention to where I stepped. I got up fairly easily, but as the day dragged on, I became sorer and sorer. I’m fine; there was no major damage that I know of, but I’m still quite sore. I will probably wake up this morning even more sore, but the good thing is that I have the day off and can recuperate.


I never thought today would come this week. Yesterday felt like Friday then the realization hit that it was only Thursday. I have a doctor’s appointment this morning. Hopefully, all the blood work I had done the other day will come out okay. I haven’t gained weight since I last saw my doctor, but I haven’t lost any either. He’s definitely going to tell me that I need to lose weight. I’m hoping everything else will be okay, and I will start trying to do better with losing weight.


Yesterday, I had a pretty bad stomachache. No matter what I did, it wouldn’t go away. So I didn’t feel much like writing a post for today.

Sickly Sunday

I stayed in bed most of yesterday. I woke up with a terrible cough and headache. I was even experiencing body aches. I felt like I was coming down with a summer cold. I felt awful. By the end of the day, I was feeling some better. Hopefully, I will be feeling much better today. Have a lot I need to get done. All in all, it will probably be a busy week. There is just too much to do to be sick.


I had the worst fucking Sunday. I had a migraine all day long. At times it would get better, but not completely go away. At other times it was just excruciating. I stayed nauseated almost all day long. In other words, I was miserable. I didn’t want to watch TV, and I couldn’t read. My eyes have a hard time focusing when I have a headache like this. Now it’s Monday, and I have to go to work. Where did my weekend go? Sorry for the complaining, but sometimes you just have to let it all out.

Monday, Monday

I was a bit lazy most of the weekend. I did a little house cleaning, but should have done more. I did go to an art opening Friday night which was fun. Some of the art was quite beautiful. I also did a little networking for museum jobs.

This week will probably be a doozy like last week. It’s the first week for our new director. I have a dentist appointment this afternoon that I’m not looking forward to. I really hate going to the dentist. Then on Wednesday, I have my yearly evaluation, with our old interim director. There is no reason to be dreading this but I am. I never much liked our interim director and he always treats me like a third wheel. Hopefully, it will all go smoothly, and like the dentist today, I can cross that off my list of things to dread.


I was sick yesterday and forgot to write a post for today.

End of the Week

Thank goodness it’s Friday. The end of the week is finally here. It’s been a busy and tiring week. I’ve completed this week’s coursework for my two classes. I just have to do some commenting on other people’s work, and then I will be finished. I really only have one more week in each class and then the final project in my museum studies class. These two classes have taken up much of my week. I’ll have to buckle down and do some real work tomorrow. I’ve got several things I need to get done, because next week, I will be in Boston. Tuesday through Thursday, I will be conducting my final oral histories. Then, that part of the project will be over with. There is still a lot left to do though. Will I get it all done before my time is up? I doubt it, but I will actually do my best. So tomorrow there is some paperwork to be done and then I have to pack my equipment and get it ready to go. I won’t actually be back in the office until next Friday. Monday is a holiday for us, one of the few that we actually get besides Thanksgiving and Christmas. Anyway, after work tomorrow, I have to go to the doctor for my check-up. I’m not thrilled about going. He’s going to tell me things I already know and say that I need to do better. The good thing is that I am going to ask him about the new migraine prevention medication that has come out. I’d like to see if it could prevent my migraines. Tomorrow is going to be busy.
