I got an appt to see the dentist on Thursday morning. They had an opening tomorrow but I'm going to be out of town. It hasn't bothered me all day but I guess it's better to get it checked out to see what's going on and if there is a problem better to get it fixed now before it gets too bad. Dental bills also scare me because we don't have dental insurance. DH had me go see a physical therapist for my shoulder to get his opinion and show me some stretching exercises. He feels it's a rotator cuff strain and showed me some exercises to do. He told me lay off the yoga for 4-6 weeks which I really don't want to do. I might take a little break over the holidays, then go back and not do the intense plank/sun salutation stuff where there is a lot of wt on my shoulder. The pain was so bad this morning I was nauseous and couldn't even drive with that arm.
Tomorrow I go shopping with my mom and sisters. I have a list of things I need to look for. It should be a fun day!
I should have raw almonds by the end of the day. When my violin teacher was leaving last night I mentioned I needed to find raw almonds for a recipe. She said she had lots of them so she is dropping them off. She's the type of person that has anything you might need.
So, after the good news of signing my new job paperwork Sean was fired from his job. They are restructuring and so he is gone.... can we ever get ahead?
I hope he finds something better. Thank god you found something when you did. Sorry you guys are going through so much!
I am trying to stay positive but it is so hard. I was looking forward to driving in to work with Sean so we could talk about nothing.
Tomorrow is Robbie's Christmas concert. I will need to video it.
Should finally have an answer about my disability by friday.
Margaret...I saw on FB about your DH's job. I'm so sorry to hear this. Do you start your's today? What type of work does DH do? Hope you enjoy Robbie's program.
I spent yesterday shopping with my mom and sisters. I left home at 7am and got home at 11pm. Where we shopped is 2 hrs away. I got all of my Christmas shopping done and only bought one or two things that weren't on my list so it was a good day. I went to the dentist this morning. I was right about what I was thinking was wrong. Part of my filling came out and there is a little decay. I go back on Jan. 3 to have the old filling replaced. This filling has always bothered me because it is so rough. They put a temporary type filling on it. My shoulder is doing better. It must've been really inflammed on Monday and yoga just made it worse so made it more painful on Tuesday.
We are having another plumber come over to check out our bathroom remodel project. The plumber who we've always used hasn't gotten back to us about giving us an actual bid amount. Our contractor said he's had problems with this plumber staying at his bid price. The plumber that's coming today says he doesn't care if we buy everything on our own, whereas I'm thinking the other one wanted to buy them and I can find them online for about $2000 cheaper.
Meg - You are amazing. I definitely did not stick to my list and got DH a Roomba and a Mint to clean our floors. Of course we are not doing any renovations and our monthly rent is very reasonable. I might buy more presents for DH than for DS this year... but I am always buying stuff for DS. It is fun to spoil DH though he will definitely freak out about it... I wish I was up for shopping outside the house. I am stuck on the computer. And I miss getting out. Not that I am complaining. I am just looking forward to getting out - at some point.
Yes, I started today. It went well but I was tired at the end of the day. Sean is a mechanical engineering technician (he designs machines and heating systems), he already has 3 interviews lined up, the first is tomorrow! Tomorrow I am being taken to lunch by my boss. Yeah!
The Christmas concert was really cute. The music teacher is awesome. I cried during the Kindergarten numbers and I don't even know any of the kids! Robbie didn't like singing "I'm getting Nuttin' for Christmas", he is afraid that it is true.
I am a huge list maker and stick to it. I don't like spending tons of money so I really have to justify something if I'm going to buy it. There were a lot of cute clothes I saw though and had to refrain from buying them for the girls. I saw some cute sweaters at Old Navy and my sister needed something for the girls so she got them for them.
Tiffany...I'm sure it does kind of get old to go to work and then come home but I'm sure that's all you can do right now since you are so close to your due date. It sounds like your DH is very supportive and helpful so once those babies come maybe you can get out and do some things for yourself.
Margaret...Glad your first day went well. That's great that DH already has interviews. Yeah for lunch with the boss!
We went and saw "War Horse" live today. If anyone ever gets a chance to see it, go see it. It was amazing! It was so emotional. Throughout it all I was on the verge of tears of happiness, sadness and anxiety. The theatrics was incredible with the horses and puppetiers. Now I'm going to watch the movie soon to see how it compares.
