Hospital Fun February 23, 2010

So one trip to the emergency room leads to checking Rich into the hospital and then a few days later to surgery, and down to recovery and restrictive visiting hours for a week. The wound nurse and the surgeon argue about closing the wound and that’s now scheduled for tomorrow, and I might get to take him home by the end of the week.

Life has been full of nurses and doctors this week. Next week we get health insurance back.

Waiting to see how money balances out. Starting to look back at investing depending on how that goes. I’m getting work done here and there, and Rich’s boss is looking into PTO for last week and this. I’ll probably have at least one day off of B&N this week, next week I’m only scheduled for two days. Joy.  We’ll make it work, though.

Storms and snow and sleet and rain and ice and wind. Welcome to winter in Ohio. I don’t know what the official numbers are, but the path through the snow to our parking lot comes up almost to my knees. Not the several feet of snow the papers were reporting further east, but plenty to make life interesting. Once again pondering the Z, but no more answers than we had before. We’re going up this weekend to wish our nephew a belated 4th birthday, apparently we weren’t the only ones that missed the party last week.

Elbow aside, my health is stable. Work is fairly stable, too. Waiting on the tax return to start shifting money and making a couple purchases. Got my car serviced today, had to replace all my windshield wipers, the ice has not been kind to them. Also got a taillight replaced, I think that was the most expensive part of the operation. But it’s done now, no more worrying about getting pulled over for a burnt out lightbulb.

Have discovered spring rolls. Now if only PF Chang’s didn’t have huge mushrooms in them, it would be perfect.

Finally got all our paperwork and had a free afternoon. I sat down today and did our taxes. We owe the state a little bit, but we’re getting quite a good chunk back from the Federal Government. We’ll be able to get everything on an even keel, and maybe even get a nice thing or two we’ve been putting off. We’ll definitely be able to get a comfort buffer back in the checking account. And I’ll feel good about getting back into investing. I love numbers, especially when they all balance out nice and happy.

I’ve had some great fun working on Bookup’s membership site. It’s not quite ready, yet, but it’s going along and we’re figuring it out. I heart WordPress, just in case you didn’t know. I need to learn a little bit more about making Themes, or at least making Themes work for me, but Mike is far less concerned by the Membership side looking pretty than he is getting it to work. He’s also beta testing a new product version that, when the kinks are all out, will be a great asset.

Big storm set to arrive tomorrow, ah Ohio in February. 🙂
