Everything I have to share as news today has both positive and negative aspects- so I’m not exactly sure if they’re good or bad things. Let’s go neutral…I have beige news, news from Switzerland, neutron news!
First of all this new chiropractor says he can have me fixed in 6-9 months. In 1 month he says I’ll feel a world of difference and actually be able to go through daily life without feeling like I have a hot poker stabbing me until I bleed. Theoretically it would also fix my thyroid function, making it possible for me to eat more than a 10 year old and not look like Violet Beauregard AND fix the nerve function and supply to my repro system so having kids wouldn’t be as much of a crap shoot. That sounds fantastic right? I agree(d) until I saw his payment plan. SO FUNNY! Now I’m faced with the decision whether or not I can 1) even come up with a way to feasibly pay that much 2)risk putting it off, getting worse and needing to have back surgery sooner or later that would probably be the same price with a worse outcome. and 3)debate his validity
On the dating front I have some leads- but no bites. Probably will all vanish before Monday comes around so don’t get too stoked for me.
Lastly, there’s work. Though I’ve been raking in the overtime for the past 6 months I’m starting to feel like working 40 hours a week would be kind of nice. This is something I am very unfamiliar with- actually not familiar with at all since I’ve never done it….but maybe I’ll give it a shot? Speaking of- LeighAnn officially put in her resignation today so Alex will be joining me full time after tech school graduation this May. That’s fantastic on one hand, but also makes me a little worried that I’ll be cut down to my scheduled 36. That is noooot enough work for me (both physically and financially). However I’m apparently on track to be signed up for tech school and rehab assistant certified in the nearish future. I would assume those would mean a pay raise, but if they’re paying for the school then I’d feel kind of bad actually asking them for one.
There ya go- my flippy floppy news stories. Feel free to chime in on any/all with opinions and suggestions. I’ll be attempting to run 9 miles tomorrow after boxing class so do it fast, I might be comatose later.
