Happy birthday to rainbow_slinky!
Hello to new readers docorion, gandalfgreyhame, regyt, and tardischan!
April Fool's Day
I tried to think of an April Fool's prank that wouldn't hurt people. But I couldn't. So I'm not doing one. Aren't you happy?
However, you should all go look at your userinfo page. EDIT: Oh, and lj_serialadder - that's cute. :)
State of the 'song
Consult with the oral surgeon today at 4.
You know, I got spoiled with my neurologist. When I went to the campus clinic and described my seizures, the nurse-practitioner went out and called the neurologist and the hospital, and I walked out of there with appointments scheduled for an MRI and for the neurologist. The neuro looked at the MRI, said yep, gave me a prescription, and sent me straight from her office to get an EEG. Boom boom boom and it was done. And when I call her office with questions, I get a call back the same day.
Well, I guess the system only works fast if it's your brain, because they suck when it comes to the rest of my body. It took a month for my back problem to get mostly resolved - I'm going to go back for the cortisone shot as soon as I accrue more sick time (I'm currently having to use vacation time for this shit). Also have to have my yearly when I accrue more sick time.
But this.... a piece of my tooth broke off, y'all. I went to the doctor last week. I have a set of X-rays in my purse, along with a referral that says exactly which wisdom teeth I need out, and which tooth needs to be capped. Why the fuck do I need a consult? As far as I'm concerned, I had my consult last week. They know what needs done. Just knock me out and yank the fuckers out already.
Since I'm already complaining... my house is driving me bugnuts. It has been years since I've had a room where I can just close the door and write, or even just read. My desk is in the bedroom. yendi and Elayna are in and out of that bedroom all the livelong day.
I need a house with more space for all of our stuff, and with a modicum of privacy for me.
yendi is an introvert. I am an extrovert. This should surprise no one. What this comes down to, however, is that yes, he gets plenty of alone time, because I go out with friends... but I don't. It has been almost a month since I've had more than half an hour a week alone in my house. And no, I don't do well when I have a week of him not being here, but please, please, one day. Half a day. Time for me to actually unwind, have a nice bath, actually get some writing done. Will someone please take yendi and Elayna to a baseball game or something?
I mean, I love my man, and I love my kid, but I need a break every so often.
Okay, I'm done now.
Really, I'm okay.
Other than all of that, I'm set to have a pretty good day, thanks for asking.
I have pictures of last week's JavaMonkey expedition! I shall post them tonight.
Okay, work now.
