This morning, in front of the mirror in the bathroom, I had a rush of feeling woozy and dizzy.  And it's happened a few times here at work, even though I'm sitting down.  That's weird.  I'm not hungover (that was Sunday), and I sure am not empty-stomached, good lord, I sure did fat myself this weekend.  I ate a lot of food.  I had multiple dinners.

I'm hopefully finishing up a project today and tomorrow.  Have to revise my stormwater report.  I wish I could say I'm good at taking criticism, but man, it makes me so testy.  Also, Bruce wants me to present this project to the planning board, when we do that.  The idea is incredibly terrifying, and part of me feels like I should be worried about it, and stressing out about it, but the rest of me (and that's the part that's bigger) recognizes that it's going to happen whether I worry about it or not, and there's nothing I can do about it NOW to prepare, so mostly I just think about it as something that's going to happen, oh well.  It sure will be stressful when it's happening, though.  I guess I have to grow up sometime, career included.

I'm thinking about taking a personal day, just to get some things done at home.  I don't think I've ever done that before.  Whenever I take a day, it's to go on vacation or to play around in Philly (WORK BITES), so that will be interesting.  I have a fear that if I do that, I'll sleep late and not get anything done anyway.  That would be terrible.  So we'll see.  I'm too much of a wuss to take a day when things are really busy, and things are never not really busy around here.  I'm going to see the Roots and Common on Thursday, so Friday would be a nice day to do it, but the concert is right there on my calendar, all obvious and everything.

I had a really good weekend, it was over too soon.  I went up to New York.  I'll talk about it later, I promise.

Sounds like we're about on the same schedule.

When are we all going to do that again? We should have made that a yearly tradition . . .

I thought that was the plan. Maybe we can do a Xmas in Philly trip. December might be chilly, but I like the cold.

Hate to ask, but you're not preggers, are you? I got those woozy feelings the first few weeks.

Haha, oh man, no, I don't think it's that! But that's good to know, I think . . . hey, did YOU know what it was, at first, or were you just really dizzy and confused?

Well, I had a suspicion due to some other symptoms (TMI) that I was having... I knew SOMETHING was up.

Re: wooziness -- are you taking any decongestants? I ask because that seems to be part of my dizzy spells. I imagine it has something to do with dehydration and the inner ear. Anywez, if I lay off the decongestants I get less dizzy. Not sure what your allergy status is.

Allergy status is negative! Nope, no new medications recently. And I haven't felt woozy for a few hours, so maybe it's gone? Or maybe I'm getting a cold, I think that happened to me once. Getting dizzy as a result of a cold, I mean. So we'll see.

About a month ago I had some dizziness, and I'm pretty sure it was because I got pretty badly dehydrated.
