Cribbed from an email to my Mom.

I have my good days and bad days, my shoulders are taking on the job of hurting on bad days right now. But even my worst days are far better than my worse days when I was on my meds. I’ve started taking Glucosamine again, to supplement, and I think it’s helping.

Rich traded in his 350Z yesterday for a 2009 Hyundai Elantra. It’s dark red, and very nice, and in excellent shape. The hospital is still jerking us around about combining all the bills we owe them, and the surgeon’s office has trouble remembering to return our calls.

I just got my review at work. I Meet Standards overall, but have to work on the same things I always have to work on: Cafe usefulness, selling Member Cards, and shelving faster. I applied to four other bookstores in the last few days. They buy and sell used book, cds, dvds and even records. We’ll see how that goes.

I’ve been trying to figure out what else I’d be happy doing, that I could make a living at. Tossed around ideas of editing – for companies, for hire, for students. I really enjoy the flexibility of my current schedules, but the weight of being an adult is starting to sink in with all the debt from the hospital. But we’re at a much better place with all that.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow February 11, 2010

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.
