07:22 am: So much to do, so little time.
It's been quite a busy time for me since my last update. I started the day after my return from Japan by waking up early to finish cleaning my apartment for company. I also made a trip to the next town to pick up the new pair of eyeglasses I ordered. That afternoon, Jenn, her friend, and mangaroo came over for an Avatar marathon. We took a break in the evening to have a takoyaki supper. Jenn and her friend stayed the night, and we got up early the next day to continue watching, making it partway through the third season.

I started work on Tuesday the 25th, beginning nine consecutive days at the airport. (That's what happens when the scheduled days off are Sunday/Monday one week and Thursday/Friday the next.) It's rough to go that long without a break, particularly when new bosses are coming out in Warcraft and I have stacks and stacks of new books to read.

One bright spot is that my guild finally defeated the boss Yogg-Saron in the 25-man Ulduar raid. We had been working on that one for a long time.

Now that I've had my Thursday/Friday off, I'm feeling much better. I'm starting to make some headway on my stacks of books. I'm hoping my future work schedules are finalized soon, because I'm hoping to take a weekend off in October to fly back to Michigan.

9 in a row, ugh =/ Glad to hear things are looking up though.

From the sounds of it, I'm guessing your weekend home will be crazy busy, but if you get some free time, I would enjoy getting the chance to drop by and say hi =)

Enjoy your reading!

Yeah, that's why I figured it was at least worth trying to work something out^^

On a related note, let me know if you need a ride to/from the airport; I live close by so it would be no trouble.

*blink* I still don't know how you managed to be such an excellent hostess while other travelers (who shall remain nameless) were dragging about like zombies, but then to go from vacation mode to nine straight days at work? Ouch.

How often do your days off shift? That is, will you be on a Thursday/Friday off schedule for a while, or have you already changed?

Also, yay! on making it all the way to season 3.

It was worst Monday night when I tried to attend my Tae Kwon Do lesson in the evening and spent half the class sitting against the wall to stop my head from spinning. Then I woke up at 3am Tuesday and couldn't go back to sleep. It got better after that.

How often do your days off shift?

Usually it's the same two days for two weeks in a row. Occasionally it only lasts one week, usually to compensate for someone else being on vacation. This is complicated by the fact that it's possible to swap with other people.

That is, will you be on a Thursday/Friday off schedule for a while, or have you already changed?

This week I'm Thursday/Friday, next week I'm back to Sunday/Monday.

Would you fly back just for a visit, or to pack up some things to take back (send?) to California? (I, too, would like the chance to stop by and visit!)

I'm hoping to take a few things back with me. Currently, if my request for leave is approved, my plan is to fly out Oct. 1 and fly back Oct. 4.

I know you don't get any of it off, but I hope you're having a good Labor Day weekend. I just wanted to let you know that I finally saw all your brothers at the same time, so got to give out the souvenirs and show the photos/video clips from our time in San Francisco together.

They seemed pleased.

We got some nice reactions for the Carnaval shots. (Like, "Doh!! I didn't need to see that!" especially with the "Hot Pink Feathers" group)
