Green Room - Week 18 - Day 1

Today is a sad day.

We're still waiting for 1 of 9 Gatekeeper votes, but in a way it doesn't matter how they end up voting. Because losing 14 contestants today is going to *hurt*. All kidding aside, I can't think of one contestant that I would seriously be "ok" with losing at this point. Losing 14? Yeah, that's going to be rough.

So I do want to take a moment to congratulate everyone for making it this far.

You've all done a terrific job and let's try to enjoy the rest of the day that we *know* that we have together before the biggest cut of the season takes place and we have our TOP 40.

***

So, other than that - how are you doing today?

Morning! I guess it looks like I will spend the day refreshing this post.

Good luck to everyone!

I'm really torn because I can't spend the day refreshing this post. I have to deliver two tests, and I'm so behind on my work I went in yesterday for free, and am going in early today (supposed to be a late day for me).

I'm torn because If I check here and find out I'm gone, that'll be a major distraction and if I spend the day checking waiting on the last 3 gatekeepers, that will be distracting, and I just can't not get this work done.

Meh! Headed to work now.

How about this?
Good morning.

DOOM DOOM DOOM DOOM FOR ALL OF YOU!!!

By the end of the day, 14 of you will be joining that great Home Game!

See, it's just not remotely appropriate for the seriousness of the day. Today has me bummed. I want to be all doom and gloom more doom, but I'm just not looking forward to this announcement at all.

Can't wait to learn the results!

How else am I doing? Nervous and worried. We've been having some health issues with our youngest. She has an appointment with a specialist tomorrow, and I have to leave here soon to see if it's at all possible to get her approved for Medicaid. Keep your fingers crossed, please. I hear specialists can get expensive. We really just want her to be okay and not even need it.

I'm not doing great this morning. I'm trying to decide if I'm well enough to go to work or sick enough to call in. I suspect it is somewhere in the middle.

I'm looking forward to this week. Finding out whether or not I made it to the next round will be nice, and we just took on a new foster puppy; a 7-week pit bull puppy. My two dogs aren't sure what to make of her yet because she's so small.

I'm so damn nervous about this...not having any happy thoughts!

Other than that...I'm shattered today. And I left my coffee at home, so have had to resort to crappy campus caffine. Yich...

Why do I get dizzy every time I eat a banana, Internets? Is this some weird property of bananas, that they mess with my 248,778 medications in much the same way that I can't take calcium supplements because EVERYBODY BUT ME knew that calcium binds to and eliminates anticonvulsants?

Once I get done worrying about that, then I can be all like F5 F5 F5.

GOOD Morning (I am bound and determined that it be one).

The forecast is for snow showers this morning, light snow this evening, and potential winter storm tomorrow (ice and snow).

Blech.

I am nervous for everyone else, but I have made my peace with this being the end of the road for me. I read all the entries in one shot over the weekend and with so much talent in the competition, I just feel... out of my league. This is not me quitting or asking for lots of reassurance. This is just me being realistic.

Errands galore today included a much needed doctor's appointment.

Today's upside is my music lesson :-)

Today's downside is dealing with a recurring pain issue :-( Not only a bummer physically, but an emotional downer as well.

Right now, it's COLD - ONE degree - but sunny, and I am having coffee while my son watches Pokemon. Breakfast is imminent. The house is warm. So things could be lots worse.

I'd be fibbing if I said I wasn't anxious about the voting results!! *more quivering*

Good morning...it's back to bloody raintime in California...

Carrie's Birthday weekend came and went - it was alright - pretty mellow overall - but that's because we weren't completely 100% back to normal from the food poisoning the weekend before.

I'm just hoping to get through the week..like always.

*waves to everyone*

I'm actually having the best day in a while, I think. My alarm did some odd thing where it decided not to be set this morning despite I could swear I set it some time last night, but aside from that I'm not in as much pain as I've been, I'm (sort of) managing to follow my physical therapist's instructions, and I'm not dead yet. All of them good.

Then again being kind of peppy today could just be the fact I just finished another chapter of one of my stories and it involves lots of nasty things happening to the main character. Abusing fictional people always puts me in a good mood.

Morning...
It's back to being sub zero here again:(
Luckily it's my late day so hopefully it will warm up slightly before I need to head out.

I still have no heat.

On the plus side, this makes me glad to be at work, where there is heat.

Not only will today be sad...it will just get HARDER from here on out. Seriously, with all the joy of making it another round, it leaves an icky feeling of losing more friends to The Vote at the end of the week.

*hugs everyone*
