Figuring It Out As I Go…

{October 24, 2007}   Oops

I accidentally deleted all of my contacts, everywhere. I think I recovered them all, but if you could please send me your email addresses and phone numbers, just in case anyone got missed, I would greatly appreciate it!


{October 9, 2007}   “Scalpel Please”

So my surgery is officially scheduled…Nov 13th, the day before my birthday! I’ll be down for 6 freakin’ weeks! I may not make it ya’ll, ’cause staying home and in bed is NOT my strong suit! Thank God I’ll be on good drugs! We’re going to celebrate my birthday the weekend before, and Kristen is going to come hang out with me on my birthday. She’s also in charge of decorating my cast, ’cause she’s super creative and artistic 😀 My boss is going to try to set me up to work from home…we’ll see. We have a meeting with HR on Friday to talk about it. I’d really hate to be so out of the loop for so long with all of my added responsibilities…seriously! Not to mention, not only will I be in bed on my birthday, but Turkey Day, Tyler’s Birthday, Christmas and New Years!! Yuck. Seriously.

On the upside, my ankle will be all better…right? Sure.  Have I mentioned I’m fucking terrified?  Yeah.  I am.  I won’t be able to WALK!!!!!

So I’m going to try to move before my surgery…I put in an application for a duplex tonight. It’s really nice! 2 stories, 3bd 2 ba 1300 sq ft, and super close to their school. That matters a lot right now, because if I don’t live within walking distance of their school, I’m not going to be able to have them when I have my surgery since I won’t be able to walk or drive. So cross your fingers for us!

And of course, this affects the plan Kristi and I had to get a tattoo and more holes on the 10th. Not really though, we just rescheduled it to the 4th. Figured I should give myself a week of healing time before needles and scalpels 😉

Well, I think that’s all my news for now…I’m off to read blogs like a good girl now!

I chopped my hair off! I think I love it 😀


I also decided to play Betty Fucking Crocker. There’s another whole sheet the same size as this one and brownies. OCD much?? They REALLY yummy though!

Oh, and the tint is off of my front windows.  No pictures, because I just can’t like it yet!

That’s all for now. Small update 🙂

{September 20, 2007}   Silent Tears

I’ve been getting a lot of these the past couple of days from the girl.  Her eyes fill with tears when I turn her expander, then they start falling.  There is no drama involved, just her silent tears.  It breaks my heart that I’m causing her physical pain, even though I know it’s for her own good.  So I hug her, I comfort her, I let her eat ANYTHING that she can because everything hurts, and I call her at school to remind her to take her Motrin to stay ahead of the pain she’s currently feeling in her mouth, head and face…We’re scheduled for 28 turns.  We’ve got 6 under our belt.  Yes, we are counting down!

In other random news, my mom has been calling me all night.  I’m not answering.  I don’t remember if I blogged about this, but before I left for MN, she started using again.  At my house.  While babysitting my daughter after her oral surgery.  I have nothing to say to her.  How DARE she put my child in harms way when I’ve entrusted her to care for her AFTER HER ORAL SURGERY!!!!!!!!  She’s my baby dammit, and this is my home, and how DARE she disrespect it!  But it makes my heart beat a little bit faster every time her number pops up on my phone.  And it makes my mind start racing every time she hangs up without leaving a voice mail.  Damn her!

Work is going really well.  I’ll be making my trip to our corporate office in MN somewhere around the first week of November.  I’m excited and scared, and so happy that my boss is trusting me being her second on this project!  I really do love my job, and have learned recently that there’s nothing outside of my job that could make me leave it!

Speaking of love, I haven’t said recently how much I love my friends.  I have a great group of friends, both on here and in real life, and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without you guys!

I have other stuff on my mind tonight, but my mind is a bit jumbled…I’ve been keeping a running outline in draft form for my passworded post, so watch for it.  Again, I’ll email everyone the password.

Have a great weekend ya’ll!

{September 18, 2007}   The Girl…

Got her braces and palate expander in today.  She did better than I thought, and is handling it better than I thought.  She’s hard to understand right now, and can’t really chew, but she’s drinking a milk shake and playing on my laptop here at work, so she’s in good spirits 🙂  She has a Yahoo email address, and we use Yahoo here at work, so I signed her into messenger so she can talk to Kristen and my boss and I.  It’s making her very happy, and my boss and Kristen both just love her, so it’s fun for everyone.  Nice way to break up the monotony of a Tuesday 🙂

So, without further ado, the pictures!

The Braces


The palate expander that will slowly break the roof of her mouth (AKA the RPE)


And the spikes she’s had for almost 2 years now…mouth full of metal?  Nah 😉

And as a bonus, this was my drive to work yesterday morning:

I’ll write more later…I still have the long juicy post I promised ya’ll. Oh, and I’ve decided to just password posts when I need to, because there’s no way in HELL I’m going back to Blogger!!!!

{September 16, 2007}   Privacy Problems

So apparently in order to go private with WP people have to be registered users. I really don’t want to have to go back to blogger just to be able to go private…so I’m a little torn right now. I’d have to have all of my readers register on here, and then I’d have to have their user names…so I may just keep passwording my posts, or I may move back to blogger, YUCK! I’ll keep you guys posted.

{September 13, 2007}   Privacy

I’ve decided to make my blog private, so please make sure I have your email address, as I will be doing this in the next day or so.
