Thursday, August 20

I awoke today feeling very sore from sleeping on the couch. I cannot turn as much as I do in a normal bed. My leg and hip felt like it was numb since I stayed in the same position all night. I was rushing to get ready and wasn't able to take anything to work for breakfast or lunch. I grabbed a danish at 480 calories. Then for lunch I found a packaged diet plate of carrots, celery, egg, crackers and cheese. I also got a snack package of vege chips for 140 calories. I called the furniture store to reschedule my delivery and at first I was told they had openings next week and that's when I explained my ordeal. They came back to say that I would need to call tomorrow morning at 8am to make arrangements for a Friday delivery but when I got home I received a call telling me of a 2-hour window for delivery tomorrow. Now I need to ask my brother to help out and be here waiting for them since I have to work and he has Friday off. I plan on calling the actual store to complain and I will tell my salesman that I was inconvenienced for 2 extra nights of being on the couch and having to wait around all evening Wednesday for the truck that was 2-4 hours late and for having to make my brother wait here on Friday. I will ask for some type of refund. Before dinner, I grabbed some shelled peanuts and snacked on them. For dinner I had 2 pieces of meatloaf with gravy, a baked potato with 3 pats of butter and mixed vegetables. I hope to get some restful sleep tonight. I will be busy tomorrow since my manager is gone and I will assume some of her work and I have switchboard duty for her breaks and her lunch hour which takes me away from my desk for 1-1/2 hours. I hope my furniture does arrive since I will need a good nights rest because on Saturday Scott and I are participating a 5K walk to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation that grants wishes for children for life threatening diseases.
