Psycho Killer.

This week is DRAGGING ON FOREVER. I am more busy this week at work than I've probably been all summer combined. But I'm still getting my work done, which I am very proud of myself for doing! Tomorrow is my last half-day-Friday. The special hours were a special summer thing, and summer is over. Next week is the start of mandatory overtime...10 hour work days. As I understand it, this will last until the company decides to hire another artist, which could be as soon as 2-3 months from now! I hope that this overtime does not last THAT long. I do not mind doing a little overtime, but I am on salary and do not get paid for it...and quite frankly three months of fifty hour work weeks is a little more than I think I can (or want to) handle! Good news, though, is that we are able to do our overtime at home. 

Next week, Ian and I are going to try to purchase some tickets to the David Byrne show in Chicago on Oct. 26th! I'm going to use some vacation time and extend that weekend by a couple of days. I'm looking into getting a jacuzzi suite at a hotel near Milwaukee for that Saturday night so that we can hit some museums and Lake Michigan on Saturday/Sunday (and also relax in that jacuzzi Saturday night, obviously). Then, we can drive down to Chicago Sunday evening and see David Byrne. I don't actually want to spend a lot of time in Chicago because frankly I don't really like that city. So, after the concert we are going to drive part-way back towards home and stay at a hotel Sunday night, then continue our journey Monday morning. I am pretty excited. At least it is something to look forward to in the long stretch of no days off between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. IF we can get the tickets, that is.

I have an optometrist appointment in exactly two weeks. I decided I should probably make one seeing as I am out of new contacts. My health insurance covers the exam and I get a discount on glasses, so that is a good thing. I should probably set up a dentist appointment soon as well because it's been awhile and those appointments are also covered.

I finally "finished" (it will never truly be "finished") decorating my apartment. It at least looks finished. I also spent an insane amount of money at Gordman's last weekend on holiday decorations. I can't wait to start decorating for fall! :)

Last night I slept for about 9 hours, so tonight I am not quite as tired as I have been as of late. I should probably think about going to bed soon, though, or tomorrow will be horrible. Although, my customer service rep is on vacation or something like that, so in theory I should not be as busy as normal. In theory........
