want and need

I got paid today, which makes me happy. So I went online to see how much I got paid, and then I paid some bills.
Which made me sad.
but i'd like to get my credit card balances down so that i can use them if i need them ... but i also want some new clothes and maybe a nice vacation.

there are a lot of things i want.

i feel crappy tonight. I'm at work, on the quiet side. I'm nauseous, wobbly, and lightheaded. I hope i'm not getting sick. Heavy doses of caffeine are getting me through this shift.

There's a 200 lb mastiff on the critical care side. It is lateral (immobile), hooked up to nasal o2, iv fluids, ecg, and a urinary cath, and needs to be turned every two hours. Loads of fun. so sad i'm missing that.

there is so nothing going on in my life right now. I work, i have a kitten to cuddle when i get home, i get to spend wednesday night and thursday with michael. I agreed to work fourth of july, because i want the money and i'm stuck in OC dogsitting anyway. i hope he's not upset. I'll make him dinner or something.

time to go walk a dog ...

food! gmail! DVDs!

teaching a kitten to eat is so much more difficult than imaginable ... she understands food, now i have to get her to understand bowl. We're both covered in kitten food.
She's trying to hard to nurse, i'm just going to pick up a nursing kit from petco. I want her to eat kitten food, but it may be easiest to just take a step backwards and let her learn a little more slowly.

I got a gmail account today ... yay me. I don't know why, i don't really need another email address ... but i wanted it. so now i'm also findable as blackeyes at gmail dot com.

I think i'm going to make a trip to DVD planet today, to reward myself for ... i dunno ... existing. maybe get the Reno 911 season one dvds, or another year of absolutely fabulous. something to laugh at.

i'm a turtle?

Xuan Wu ~ Turtle
You are Xuan Wu!

Mythological background: Because the turtle has a
thick, solid shell that serves as protection -
this animal is associated with stability. You
enjoy intellectual pursuits.
Also, in Feng Shui (the Chinese myths behind
choosing a house), the black turtle's solidity
is used to protect from cold northern winds.
