slow this ride down please!!!!

This ride is going too fast...I'd like for it to slow down a bit...or let me go get on a different one!!

I've wanted to post for almost 2 weeks now, and haven't been able to take a few minutes to do it!

I'm in class today at work...and while it's interesting, and I'm learning a good bit...it's slow...so I figure I'll have this up in the background, and maybe by the end of class I can have a post finished...

So what's happened in the last 2 weeks....

Let's see...there's the obvious...school...and work...

The surprise sent to work by my sweet wonderful husband was a half dozen long stemmed red roses! He's so sweet! That night I skipped class, and a girlfriend of mine, and my sweet wonderful husband, and I all went to eat at Crazy Hibachi...it was yummy! We had done Valentine's Day on Friday when we went out to eat and went to My Fair Lady...so this was just birthday, so I was able to convince my friend to go too! Oh that morning went to the dentist for a cleaning...no cavities! woo hoo!

Woke up the morning of the 15th with a migraine - fun fun! Took drugs and was able to go to work...was tired from the meds, but was able to tolerate being out...later that morning went to the orthodontist! Why you might ask...I'm tired of my jaw clicking/popping...my supervisor told me about her getting braces to stop her TMJ issues. The orthodontist said he doesn't think what I've been told my whole life is "tension headaches" and "migraines" are actually tension headaches and migraines...he thinks they are all a result of my jaw being out of alignment...some of it makes sense...but I'm not 100% convinced...we'll see... The treatment consists of putting a gadget in the top of my mouth and in the bottom of my mouth for 6 months...which should stop the popping...then they do braces, to fix the teeth, so the alignment will stay correct and popping won't come back...we talked about the possibility of us moving...and he said he'll get me through the first phase, and if we move around the time of phase 2, then he'll recommend me to someone wherever we move too...I was very impressed with the guy overall...he looked at my bite, and was able to tell me which side I sleep on...that I sleep with my mouth open etc...(gave him a lot more credibility to me!)... Right now we're waiting to see what insurance will cover...I know what dental will cover...we're waiting to see what/if medical will cover...(I've called on my own, and know the answer, but I'm trying to get the insurance chick to call me back!)...

(I think the teacher of the class just saw that I was working on this instead of the databases...oops)...

Anyway...as soon as I hear back from the insurance chick at the office...I'll make my appointment for the "splints" (the 2 mouth pieces)...While I'm not looking forward to wearing the splints...I'm looking forward to my jaw no longer popping!

That Friday...hmmm...I think that was the day that LJ bought me lunch for my birthday...I have no idea what else we did...

I know that weekend we bought several "kid" movies...we knew we wouldn't have to worry about content as much that way...and we both like kid movies! :-D...Oh and my sweet wonderful husband wanted the StarTrek movies...we were about to find a boxed set of ALL of 'em, so we got that too...we went to a place that buys and sells used DVD's... woo hoo! We have several we want to get rid of with questionable content(bad language..."one bad scene"...etc...), so now we know how to get rid of those...and get something for 'em (kinda swapping 'em cause you get more store credit than cash - seller chooses cash or credit)

ok - back from break - didja miss me? ;-)

I think that gets us up to last week...hmm...

Monday...let's see...I think that was a normal Monday....

Tuesday...normal up until about 10:30 that night...when I realized the paint by the back door was bubbled about 2 inches...got to feeling around...there were what felt like little trails in the sheet rock behind the paint....our first thought...and probably yours...termites...fortunately we're under a termite contract with Terminex...they come out retreat, and fix and fix any damages...took forever of me pestering 'em to get 'em out to the house...but the guy came by Friday to see what it was...yep...as suspected...termites...they are re-treating the house today...and will repair the sheet rock and paint next week...the guy that came out Friday was great - he explained everything to me in a simple way, without dumbing down everything too much...made me feel better about the whole process...that was basically the week between pestering Terminex to get someone out to the house, and pestering the insurance chick at the orthodontist...and of course work and school!

This past weekend...had MPRE review...MPRE is the Mulitstate Professional Responsibility Exam...aka the Ethics exam for the bar....by the time I got home from that...I felt bad...so we swapped out a movie from last week that didn't work right...and then went home and vegged...by bed time I felt horrible...we missed church Sunday morning cause I felt bad...I slept till noon...and sat on the couch till evening church...we made it to church that night...and I was run down by the time we got home...we didn't stay up much later before we crashed...I woke up about 3AM with a splitting headache...I took sinus meds cause I'd been suffering with sinus junk the whole weekend...woke up again at 6ish head still pounding...took Advil and prescription drugs text messaged boss and went back to bed...got up at 8:30 and felt MUUUUUCH better! I have NO idea the cause of the headache...it wasn't a migraine...so far as it had NONE of the typical migraine symptoms...

Once I got up yesterday felt much better...and it was a typical day...gave up on the insurance chick getting information, and called and got it myself...still waiting to talk to her to tell her what I learned...

Today...I've been in class...this morning I felt so cut off from the world...I couldn't get my work IM to work...it was terrible...sitting in a not very stimulating class...with no access to "play"...got it fixed at lunch...and started typing this too...

This weekend I have to study for the MPRE...next week have to take the MPRE...

In the month of March I have to get my Bar application finished and submitted...I have to pay for Bar/Bri (6 weeks review course for the bar)...and pay for PMBR (9 day review for Bar)...and pay for the bar...(anyone got some spare money...cause this is getting expensive!)...and order graduation announcements(and pay for 'em)...and order graduation costume (& pay for it)...see...taking donations! (this is on top of paying for the dental stuff I'm doing)

We're almost done with class...which is actually early...that's kinda good...but it means I'll have an hour or so to get started on something work related...that's really not enough time to actually accomplish anything...basically just enough time to get started...and then have to go...

So...now that I've written a novel...how's life with you? What's new in the past 2 weeks in your life? Anything fun & exciting coming up for you? :-)

oh - and still could use ideas on why my sidebar is at the bottom...?

1.)I miss being able to feed Fluffy while I read your blog. and 2.)Your brother said you should contact blog support. I say even an e-mail to them might help.

Hehe, that's funny, M-I-L! I was thinking of numbering my comments, too. ;-) Great minds, and all...

1. moving?
2. your sidebar is up at the top when I look @ your blog. I wonder if that makes you feel better. :)

Keeping with format...

1. Moving? After graduation I take it? Sounds cool. Somewhere new to visit. I almost convinced my mom to move to LR the other day. We'll see how that pans out.

2. Side bar in working order for me. Looks to be where you would normally have it. Has been since pd's comment on last post about it.
3. At least I'm not the only one that's written a novel. But you have me beat, I've been working on mine since Sunday, you were able to type this in a day... congrats!
