The State of Things September 30, 2010

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.

B&N is alternating between 4 and 8 hours a week for me now. Bookup stays fairly steady at one full day and two half days. We have two people working on our forum integration. I got the help desk set up yesterday, but there are two problems to overcome there as well.  I am moving forward in learning the Traffic Ultimatum system. I have not had much luck finding good options to play lately. I will check IBD again soon.

My health continues to be good, though I’ve been fighting the beginnings of a sore throat with fresh OJ, hot cider and Alkaselzter Cold and Cough. Yoga has been a great addition to my life, increased flexibility is already present, though I don’t get to go to the full class very often. This morning I didn’t groan at a single “take a vinyasa” as was my habit previously.

I am currently off all medications, though I do now have health insurance cards for the newest policy Rich’s company has adopted. I’m not sure I mentioned this, but I have a new GP-OB/GYN here in town, instead of having to run to Newark, and a clean bill of health from her as well. I see my RA doc soon, and need to make a Dentist appointment as well, they’ve been calling again.

Rich had a couple setbacks this week. Some trouble with possible hernias that he is getting checked out today. And a slight mishap in a parking lot between his car and an SUV.  All is well and being taken care of, insurance is a wonderful thing.

Coming soon: Cedar Point and MarCon
