So, just for fun, I signed up for the Free Starter Edition of World of Warcraft about a week and a half ago. I was having a craving and figured I’d get bored long before I wanted to start paying for it. There’s a level cap and a gold cap and a professions cap, and you can’t trade, auction or mail anything. But they didn’t actually cap the non-profession skills. So, after getting to all the other caps, I’ve been running up my fishing and cooking skills, and getting achievements and pets. I have a bunny, a balloon, two parrots, three kittens, and a few owls. I caught Old Ironjaw in Ironforge and snuck into Orgrimmar to catch Old Crafty. I explored around Stranglethorn at lvl 20 so I could catch enough fish to cook to get to Master cooking. It’s been fun, I’ve got some more sneaking to do to max cooking out. Then maybe some exploring achievements to accomplish. First Aid isn’t going to get maxed because I can’t even begin to kill the higher mobs to get their cloth, but I might make it through silk, maybe. If I don’t get bored. I really want a ram, though. 😉

Further into The Omen Machine, and again, while I love Goodkind’s characters, and the plot isn’t a terrible one, the writing in this book leaves much to be desired. It’s disappointing.

One more medical bill down, two to go. Have to get the next one sorted on Monday when the billing lady gets back to the office. The big one seems to still be in limbo, no letter or call from the medical collections agency yet. They didn’t have the bill when I called. Got a random collection letter on a 9 year old Sprint bill out of the blue. That’s taken care of, just wow, took them long enough.

Weather is still really weird. Thunder and tornadoes and 70 degree weather in February. What will March bring?

I completely forgot to post last week with all the busy, and this week is just about as crazy. Halloween parties, a wedding, and my last two weeks working at the school. Tomorrow is my last day of that, in fact. It’s been a good run, but they have no more money to pay me with, so that’s that. Gotten a few things taken care of, have a few more to do yet. Tires are next up, been too busy to get to the shop thus far. One medical bill paid off. Another sent to collections because they stopped sending us bills, so I had nowhere to send payments. Sorting that one out via email as I type… hopefully.  I don’t pay collections, I pay the people we owe.

No school after this week means I’ll be getting back on my improvement plans. Both job and web design. Working six days a week meant I had no energy left over for those things. We just transferred all our domains from Rich’s job at eCommerce over to our HostGator account, so soon, everything will be in one place.

Health seems pretty stable, no noticeable improvement, or deterioration.   Still not eating my best. Both stress and stress eating are no good for my joints. But I’m trying to be more conscious again. Still buying appropriate groceries and eating (mostly) appropriate lunches (I did have Cheddar Bay Biscuits today). It’s sweets and dinners I don’t cook that are my weakness and downfall. It just too cold out to want salad all the time. ::excuses, excuses, excuses:: But I’m doing alright.

The Holidays are heading our way, are you ready?
