How can a month have passed?

The two people that actually read my blog have both commented on my last post and this must mean I haven't blogged in a while (I do eventually get these subtle hints). I was floored it had been nearly a month. Bad blogger I am, I am. So...let's see, what can I possibly update you on?? Hmmm....Oh yeah. I thought of something....I GOT THE JOB!

Yep, haven't started yet, just got the offer two weeks ago and we're doing stuff with contracts, but might start next week. So you are now reading the blog of a criminalist. Woo f-in hoo!!! It's been nuts. I had to go and get "real" clothes like grown-ups wear to work. No more flip-flops, damn it all. And have been busy at my still current job getting everything organized for me leaving. And finals were this last weekend, which we had four papers due Friday and a presentation. There's my excuses for not blogging. :)

Smoking not quite as successful. I've cut way, way down and am now a 'light' smoker. My doctors are no help. They keep praising me for cutting down so much but I need them to yell at me and tell me I'm a loser. The cutting down was great to get past an initial point but I cracked at 6-a-day. I was again told not to go cold turkey, just keep trying to cut down more and more. They suggested nicorette gum or the patch which both are awful. No drugs for me to help as the ones available make your heart run a bit higher than normal. But the good news is that my blood results are showing great improvements and I'm now in the "normal" range. We adjusted my meds since I had a remarkable crash one week, sleeping 10-11 hours a night and STILL being exhausted. I was literally falling asleep at work. This went on for about a week and then we ran some tests and the endo adjusted my meds and I've been doing better. I'm pretty tired this week, but that could be to not sleeping much last week because of all the papers and finals, lol.

I think that's the major stuff for now. Better get to work!
