Trying to build a case for the Mayo clinic, and the lab I am at lost my order form. It is a time sensitive test that has to be done by 9 am, and once the order got faxed over I was 9:05. The lady tried to act sympathetic as she gave me my orders and told me she couldn’t do the test, but it wasn’t genuine. With my cocktail it is hard to get up at all somedays, let alone 8 in the morning. It may seem like nothing to you normals but it is a big deal to me.

Helping my mom grade papers and one of the students wrote this. (See if you can guess the math vocab word!)

People put amazing free stuff online. This lady got this for her 15th birthday, and she is now 60. She was crying as we took it away, but she downsized her house and didn’t have room for it. It will have a good home with us, don’t worry. Now we just need to rearrange to find the PERFECT spot for it.

I have a lot of posts to put together, but I am still recovering from my friend’s visit. We had a great time, ate too much food and stayed up way too late. Until next time, Gardiner.

I hate it when job descriptions say “must have valid drivers license” even though you are a cashier. Like, none of the duties listed involve driving in any way. But because of my epilepsy I can either raise hell or just scratch that one off my list.

“You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.

You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.

If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.

Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.

Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary.” Julien Smith, The Flinch  (via blua)

Was tired of canning, so decided to try freezing tomatoes. My great aunt says they will keep for six months, and the skins peel right off. Notice I did a small batch as I do not have a deep freeze, and my freezer is already packed. I couldn’t even fit a cookie sheet for freezing!
