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.
