Alright.  So, to kick this off, here's my table.  I want to actually have a posted table this time, so as to keep track of which stories I've done, as I'm not doing them in numerical order.

So, without further ado... my Big Dang Table!

I'll be adding the links to the entries as I complete them here and there.

[Note: I have no idea if this shows up in peoples' f-lists properly, but I'm not entirely sure why it doesn't look right (ie: just looks like text with no table borders) on my journal.  I promise it's a table, though.]

Finally! I finally got all those numbers added up for the taxes, for all 24 teachers. Now I just need to fill out the forms, which will be another fun time in and of itself. RIP my brain until this is finished.

Bruising is going down, which is nice, but it still aches. I'm just glad it's not on a pressure point, or I'd be complaining a lot more in a lot more pain.

Today was a quiet day at work; the only really pressing thing on my mind is taking care of tax paperwork for the music teachers, and the sooner those are finished, the better. I have two full pieces of paper marked up with all the totals for the year, and I swear my eyes have glazed over multiple times. If I never have to add up another string of numbers again (even with a calculator), it'll be too soon. Sadly, I still have more to do, though.

Good news and bad news.

Good news: the pain in my chest has gone down, and it's not quite as sore as it was yesterday.

Bad news: my chest looks like someone full-out slammed a fist into it. I have a pretty decent sized bruise, which is actually quite impressive, given that the actual incision for the biopsy needle is only a few millimetres long. I'd show you, but... this is a (reasonably) SFW journal. :P

Remember how way back when I had that surgery to remove a lump? Of course you do - I told it to you! And if not, I left a link. :P

Well, it turns out that not only were the doctors totally right about me being predisposed to getting these lumps, I have another one! [Ed. note: actually, I have several, but only one is big enough to warrant discussion.] I’ve already had a few ultrasounds done on it in the past couple of years (partially to track it, and partially because I changed GPs last year), but today, I got a biopsy done on it.

Boy, was that not fun. I mean, I never felt the scalpel/biopsy needle, and the procedure itself went relatively well (they had to do it twice because the first sample was fragmented), but I’m sure feeling the ache now. Really makes me appreciate the icepack they gave me earlier, and also makes me wish it was still cold. :(

I’ve been told my GP should have the results within 7-10 (business) days, so here’s looking forward to that, I suppose. I mean, I’m sure it’s nothing, like last time, but you never know. Hope for the best!

Today was our first cadet parade night since before Christmas, and all things considered, it went rather smoothly. Much more smoothly than the first day back at my regular job, anyway. I even managed to get a swim night put together for the corps on Jan 29, which I'm pretty impressed about. :D

Today we had an officer meeting to kick off 2018 and prepare for cadets restarting tomorrow, and... that was a thing. I definitely am gonna miss the four weeks off I had over Christmas/New Year's.

At least I have my training schedule for the remainder of the year basically all laid out, and all that's left is to make small adjustments as needed as the year progresses. Here's hoping all goes smoothly.

Have you ever had one of those days where it just feels like you're hanging onto a speeding train, desperately hoping not to fall off? Because that's how my day was today.

It was the first day back for lessons, and it quickly turned into one of Those DaysTM. Two teachers forgot it was the first day of lessons, and I had to scramble to reschedule their first couple of students while I waited for the teachers to arrive; there's an issue with a leak by our electrical breaker box; a ton of students also forgot today was the first day back, so attendance was sparse; one teacher got into a minor car accident on their way in; tons of small paperwork issues just kept piling up... you get the idea.

By the end of the day, my eyes were glazing over, and I have no idea how I was still stringing together coherent emails and sentences. I even had to have Tim proofread a couple of emails after I'd sent them to make sure I'd actually made sense.

Start your new year off right, as the memes say, I guess. Hopefully next week is better.

Last day of Christmas holidays at my work, and I stayed late while Tim and one of my brothers helped my boss’s husband + her dad to move a piano (two pianos, actually). Then Tim had to help with some other work around the studio, and it was discovered that we had a water leak (most likely from out A/C unit) running down the main connection to the breaker box.

For those of you not super versed in electrical engineering (like me): it could short out the panel, leaving us with no power [best case], or it could start an electrical fire [worst case].

[Ed. note: yes, I know there is no real best case here. Just go with it.]

So, yeah. That’s kind of freaky. We called the landlords right away, and they’re sending someone out tomorrow to look at it, thankfully, so hopefully it gets solved soon. I don’t even want to think about how long that may have been a problem. :S

Another quiet day at work... until it wasn’t. January really seems like it’s out to get me this time (in terms of work; I’m fine otherwise).

Also, got to see my brother and his fiancée one more time before they go home tomorrow. Next time I’ll see them is in June, at the wedding. Feels a bit surreal, honestly.
