Tuesday, December 11

  1. Happy Tuesday!

    Well, it will be Tuesday here in another 30 minutes. Grace is already well into hers. I was about to go to bed and heard ds start to whimper. Now I have to wait. If he knows I'm in the room there's no way he's going back to sleep. I've been scraping powdered carpet padding off the livingroom floor. I finally got the gumption to rip up the nasty carpet and now I know why it was left right where it was. The floor is trashed. Db was able to get us a remnant piece that we only have to pay for the binding. At least the disaster of wood will be covered once again.

    I think someone went back to sleep. I'm going to sneak into the room while the getting is good. Prayers, hugs, warm fuzzies to all who need them! :spin:

    Hello Tuesday.

    I'm still up - I have to try to get as much work done as I can before I go to bed because tomorrow afternoon will be lost due to my endodontist appointment.

    When my dd and I went shopping two weeks ago, I bought a blue tooth phone thingie so I could use my cell more safely. I don't like using it while I'm driving but I know there are times when I need it. Like tonight when I was hopelessly lost in a town I rarely go to.

    I had to pick up my dd and she gave me directions according to google maps, which is usually very good for our area. However, the exit it told me to take doesn't exist and I was hopelessly lost in an industrial part of town over a half hour away from where we live, in the dark. Ack!

    Anyway, I call dd who has no clue where she is in relation to where I am, but she did find someone at the dinner who could help. Thanks to my bluetooth thingie, he guided me to the right place safely.

    Best part? It was regularly 60 something and it went on sale that morning I bought it - for 20.00.

    My mouth hurts. Hopefully this time tomorrow, it won't!

    and, just because, here's my sweetie, Dee. AKA, Brat Girl.

    And just being cute

    Hi Dee!!!

    Tues. dh has surgery on his other eye, for narrow angle glaucoma.
    A quick punch w/the laser, to allow the humor to drain/circulate better.
    Out-pt procedure, in the Opthalmologist's office, and then home.
    The last was no biggie, hope this one goes as smoothly.
    We were surprised to receive a bill today, to the tune of over $1K, for the previous procedure.
    Ins. hadn't paid.
    Upon close inspection, we discovered the Opthal. office had entered one wrong # in our ins. ID.
    Which, to the ins. co., translated to "not a member of our ins. co, so we're not paying."
    We'll straighten it out tomorrow.

    Hope everyone has a better day today, in some small (or big! ) way, than yesterday.

    Good evening - still 2 hours until Tuesday.

    Avoiding stats . . .

    Dd just got home from a friend's where they made a commercial for history . . . "E-Desperate" (like E-Harmony) . . an online dating service. She dressed Goth, her "true love" dressed like a chubby old man in flannel. :spin:

    I well remember the days of trying not to wake up baby . . . actually, that is part of the reason our last child slept with us - popped that mommy milk right in his mouth as soon as he started to stir and back to sleep he went.

    Speaking of sleep - I need to go there. Dianah - you have such a busy life. I feel more and more like a hermit.

    Good night all . . .

    Steph, whatever floats your boat.
    I love hermit days, lol!
    My house is a mess (literally. Really, it is. All kidding aside. ).
    Guess I'm busy doing other things, rather than housework.
    Yeah, that's it.
    Right.

    You're my hero cuz you exercise, are going back to school (actually doing it!), care about your family and are involved in their lives, and have a good head on your shoulders (compassion and common sense, a GREAT combination!).

    Hi bethin!

    Hey di

    Looking at my money situation and it's depressing. No Korea trip, my friend is shipping out next week for the beautiful and safe Middle East, so that's saving me some. I have no idea how to pay tuition for next semester or how to buy books. I don't own a credit card. I know my parents would pay for it, but we're in the middle of a big fight (see my journal) and I don't want to be a burden to them.

    I guess the 44 hours I'm working every week isn't cutting it. I was offered a part time unit secretary position on the floor I work. That would be an extra 24 hours a week, which would be major overtime. I think I might take it. The only downfall is that I would have to drive an hour one way to work and another hour to get home each time.

    I can't quit now. Only 1 more year left!

    Yeah steph, you're a real hermit. Two mission trips to Vietnam. You walk your son to school, you ride your bike to the post office.

    Do not avoid stats, stats is our friend. :spin:

    Are you still working in ER? I never hear about it so I didn't know. Or maybe I have you confused with someone else.

    Good night!
