so on monday one of my coworkers wasn't feeling so well - really tired, and the next day she was really dizzy.

yesterday, I was extremely tired for no apparent reason, and today I'm dizzy even while sitting down. :(

anyway, we had our coffee sales contest last saturday, and didn't get the results until yesterday. we won!!! \:D/ at 846% of our goal. we're really excited, especially since we beat our main "competitor" store, 2088 (the last sales contest we had, their baristas each bought two cases of product, which we just can't compete with :/). I get a gift card, we're all getting custom-embroidered aprons (which I will then further customize, since I just don't think Safeway will approve of titles like "The Baristanator"), and our Starbucks DM is getting something else special for us. yay!

now I'm going to bed early >< I hope LJ gets the message about all this comment page/form nonsense cleared up, though last time they changed something it took what felt like months to fix it (on the bright side, my flexible squares layout is back to normal).

so, SO busy all this weekend ;o; that holiday BOGO at Starbucks? we did double our normal business EVERY DAY \o/ and that's not including the free drinks. we sold so much stuff!
the only downside (sort of) was that I got called in thursday and had to stay late on friday/saturday... meaning I didn't get to ship all the packages I've got ready to go >< thankfully I shouldn't be held over tomorrow, and can get to the PO last-minute before thanksgiving.

speaking of turkey day! I'm off both thanksgiving and black friday for the first time in 4 years XD I don't mind working those days (no cooking stress, no shopping/traffic stress!), but other people volunteered. I'm looking forward to watching the madness on friday.

unpleasant things... apparently, I might be allergic to norfolk pines? I am in pain from allergies today, and the only thing I know for sure that changed is that we got a shipment of norfolk pines at safeway :/ my coworker, Jennifer, was on the verge of having an asthma attack this morning, because there were two placed right next to Starbucks. idk, I might just be getting the cold from hell.

our bell choirs at church are also short a few members each, so the ladies' and young adult choirs are going to be temporarily merging to perform at the children's mass on christmas eve. my sister and I went, "THANK GOD." we've both been playing 4 bells each, and the more complicated music just doesn't work with 4-in-hand - we change keys almost constantly in several pieces, and since I'm a 'newbie' to the technique, I can't always ring accurately (I'm playing medium size handbells in small hands - holding two in each hand hurts!). anyway, I'm really looking forward to it, despite the fact that we're not playing a few of my favorites. I do get to play "I Heard The Bells" and I get to play BIG bells on one of the songs! I hardly ever get to play them - the high bell parts tend to require intermediate/advanced players while lower parts are simpler, but one of our songs has so much syncopation our director doesn't trust the regular player on those bells XD;

ALSO christmas list... )

idk idk idk. I said a partial list. there's still plenty I'm not sure of, like what to give the rest of my coworkers (Susan, Ivonne, Angelica, Will), and whether or not I'll have time for crafting/baking (maybe thursday/friday?). I need to restock on baking goods, too.
ALSO PLEASE ADD/UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS AND FAVORITE THINGS IF YOU'D LIKE A CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM ME. if I ever get to the post office that post is screened and f-locked, btw, so no need to be worry. you can also email me, if you'd prefer~

I feel like I've forgotten something I was going to write about, but... hm. I got a package with my yay!win of tomy regigigas, tomy infernape, and dx shiny material arceus, though I don't really want the last two (I'd rather have a tomy empoleon ♥). I'm ecstatic to have a double of regigigas, especially since this one's a bit less loved than Goliath (who I now feel no guilt in dragging around). same package also had halloween sticky notes and a flat lot I won: a DP pencil board, sticker sheet... AND 2004 POKEDOLL NOTEPAD. the sheets inside are full-feature of bulba/venusaur, charmander/zard, and squirtle/blastoise ;~; so pretty and big ♥
also a couple additions to my rapidash collection are somewhere in the mail (and making me paranoid). I found the 3-ring DP ultrapro binder that features rapidash, and it's shipping from the UK. also from the UK, rapidash sample card! the seller apparently only had one left, and I couldn't bring myself to continue passing on it, so I made an offer and they accepted. I'll be silently freaking out until it gets here, since it's my most expensive card purchase ;o; ($65 - not that much compared to other prices, but a big deal for me).
OH WAIT ALSO MY TRADE WITH CAFFWIN. adorable redfloon drawing that I need to scan/photograph :D

got home and shelled out $700 of my emergency funds (already depleted from two cross-country flights) for vet bills :c my cat is sick, and the vet's not sure what's wrong, aside from a possible obstruction in her lower stomach.

there was no abnormal bloodwork, leading the vet to initially say, "oh, she's just overweight and probably has fatty liver disease/diabetes. switch her to all canned food in blah blah amounts, and force feed her if she doesn't eat on her own." didn't work out so well, since Jynx just hacked up what we fed her, and then stopped drinking or using the litterbox. we took her in again today for a round of nausea meds, IV fluids, x-rays and barium. the x-rays showed nothing unusual in her digestive system, but took a long time to pass from her lower stomach. she also has an abnormally shaped left kidney, but it's not clear if this is recent or an outstanding condition (Jynx has never needed x-rays before). x-rays also confirmed no fatty liver disease (yaaaaay).

idk, she's been home for a few hours now and still hasn't done anything. she got a couple ounces of food + the IV fluids, though, so I guess that's good??? ffffff I just feel totally helpless right now. we're taking her in tomorrow morning for a few more x-rays (thankfully no charge) but if she doesn't start eating and drinking, I'm going to have to pay either for emergency surgery or endoscopy to check out/remove a possible blockage. endoscopy costs more, ironically, and can be anywhere from $500 to $1000, but recovery is faster of course, since it's not invasive. guess I'm going to be doing a big sales post or something, because naturally this happened after depleting my emergency money and right before big bills ;___;

=____= This week, work has gotten crazier the closer it gets to Valentine's Day. Overtime = yay, but getting a cold and being plain exhausted from staying longer or being called in is Not Fun.

Thankfully, I came home to good stuff~ )I need to get back to all the messages and emails that have accumulated over the past few days :/ I've got to get some rest now, though, and take something for cold/allergies/better-not-be-the-flu, since I have to get up early tomorrow for a bell performance.

this morning, I had a dream about shapeshifting nagas ~*~IN SPACE~*~ and epic battles of good versus evil. also, there was a cute dog, and pretty flowers. I don't really know what else was in the dream, or even how I spent most of the day after waking up.

but I'm going back to bed. the madness might continue. I don't know. I just want my allergies/asthma to stop acting up ;_____; UGH BENADRYL.

yeah, I'm giving up on denying that I'm sick ;___; I have a huge pile of Christmas packages waiting to be mailed that I was going to send last Monday, but I got called in to work almost every day before Christmas (and of course worked Christmas Eve and Christmas) and now I'm stupid sick. This is killing me. At least the chocolate mint bars last pretty much forever when refrigerated yes the packages are in the fridge |D.

blah blah Christmas )

...wow, that took me two hours to type .____. I'm going back to bed for a bit now. Oh, I also won that Pokedoll tin on Y!J \o/ along with several other pokedoll items. It feels like forever since I've found something for my fire horse collection *sob*
