Crazy Days

Wow, what a crazy couple of months. I barely had time to breath. hehehe

Hubby had his surgery and recovered nicely in a couple weeks and went back to work. He is calling his doctor a miracle worker.

Kiddo started high school. I about died, my kid, in high school!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh

Took a few days to get leveled out with that.

Captain Daddy had some not great news from the docs. His blood work was showing kidney damage. to a bunch more doctors, and tweeking of meds.

Kiddo joined the computer club, and works some of the sporting events concession stands. That's pretty cool I guess. He's never done anything socially with middle school, so I hope he gets into some extra stuff with high school. I always enjoyed it.

I ended up falling again. Messed myself up some. Getting the help and getting up seems to have damaged me more than just the fall did. Good grief. But I seem to be almost completely back to normal (as if I ever was normal)

The hospital where Gigantor had his surgery, apparently wasn't happy with me making a payment to them every month, and decided they wanted all their money at once. Yup, I laughed at them. So...they turned me into collection, which is now accepting my payments every month. sheeesssshhhh

The cat ended up getting pretty sick. He stopped eating and lost a bunch of weight (he's 10 years old) Took him to the vet, and they determined it was pancreatitus. He got an antibiotic shot, and some lowfat food. (a dollar for each small can of food) costing us a total of 207 dollars for that visit. Thank god captain daddy helped us out with that.

Last year out heater kept going out. We needed a new one but had/have no money. We kept trying to repair it, and it kept breaking down. We ended up using space heaters, to the unbelievable cost of 5 to 6 hundred dollar a month electric bills. That almost killed us, we have never paid over 225 a month. Finally now that it's getting ready to cool down some, we actually took a loan out against Gigantors TSP account (thrift savings plan through work) The payments will only be 19 dollars a pay period. So...not bad, and we now have a heater on order.

Anyhow that is the highlights of what's been going on, a bunch of little stuff added to all that. hahaha

Off now to read other blogs. I haven't even had time to do that.
