day 1638 – gift of guava

apparently i needs to catch up on the world of fruits because a guava looks like a pear but taste or feel nothing like one. cut open the guava a fellow colleague left on my desk but didn’t end up liking it; at least i tried. back to the norm at work today – no tsunami warning kept my member at home, and no unreasonable deadline came my way. i am very glad i went in for a pit stop at chiro yesterday. my hip is feeling way better and up to par now. at least i can sleep at night without a heat pad and don’t have pain each time i sit down or get up. good call on getting it fixed before i head out to baker

day 1607 – meds mishmash

a day after the procedure has me hooked on all types of medicine and drops. so many painkillers and eye drops prescribed i can’t keep track on which one is which and all seems to be the same. the limited screen time forces me to sleep and rest to make up for all the times that i don’t get enough. truth is, since the surgery, i’ve had more than all of december combined. truth is, this is probably the only time i’ll ever get enough sleep and the life gets back on a grind. this holiday season will start off slow but i’ve stacked my schedule for new years so the best has yet to come

day 1579 – sunday workday

it started off having a laid back sunday morning before getting into work. good that i don’t have a 7:30am start on sunday as well so i could sleep in a little after a late night of partying. had no urgency to sleep after a night like this, but once in a while is okay. worked another blackbelt test and the rest of my time spent completing a bunch of modules. banking these extra hours hopefully to pay off and gets accredited for in the future

day 1551 – atp basel 

in the wake of a heart breaking day that made me think the unsaid disappointment was the final deal breaker i’d allow for. i should really be getting more sleep during my recovery period, but waking up early for tennis is well worth it when it’s a federer match. he’s truly amazing to watch as he pulled through for an impressive eighth title at basel. i am also hoping to save up enough money soon enough to watch him play in person one day. i already missed out the opportunity to watch andy roddick live, i really don’t want to miss a second chance

day 1453 – hamberite brunching

we rarely get to meet up but it’s good that we still keep in touch through the years. didn’t get much sleep last night but up for a precious get together when one flies over to visit. this is such a cool camera lens add on, i want one too. had a great day at hockey where i had a lot of fun and gave me some positivity. i played a great all around chicks game scoring a goal, knocking down a guy and good forechecking. a very satisfying performance to make up for yesterday’s terrible performance

day 1435 – monotonous 

another day and another sleep deprived night. it was hard enough to fall asleep, but it was harder to stay asleep; i couldn’t stop waking up thinking i overslept. the discomfort today got so much i resorted to some tylenol so to dull the discomfort. for the rest of the day it felt like a drag and i wasn’t really present. i had no appetite by dinner time i didn’t even bother. affected me everywhere at rehab and even just lying down

day 1353 – work is work 

it’s good friday so i don’t have to be at the office; why not work some more in my home office on a day that i’m off. at home is the time to relax, but cranking up the productivity cleaning my room, looking at spreadsheets, crunching numbers, finishing my graphics, and even getting most of my taxes done. it’s a good thing i finish these tasks before heading out of town
