What I Did on My Summer (not-really-Vacation)

So, let me tell you about my summer!


So far, Summer 2017 has involved medical foo, home renovations, surprise!funeral and not-a-surprise godbaby.

Medical Foo I have blogged a bit about in That Was Spinal Tap and That Was Spinal Tap Two.  I’ve also fic’d and freewrote about it in Diagnostic Machine and Just A Little Structural Rot.

The long and the short of it: After more doctor visits, blood tests, and spinal taps than seems reasonable or even probable (and two MRIs), I have a diagnosis and will start drug treatment soon.  It’s not a thrilling diagnosis, but, to quote Arnold, it’s not a tumor. (It’s not a baby either.  I don’t think they’d need a spinal tap to tell that one).

I now have three weeks without blood draws or doctor visits, and if my dentist calls, I’m going to tell them I’m out of the country for a while.  Or something.  No more co-pays kthnxbai.

Did I really just say kthnxbai?  Please forgive me.   Continue reading

Sunday with Waffles… and a house

We’re watching the morning shows before we head off for more cleaning. We have new appliances in our now-old house… and a satellite dish.

I took a 4-day weekend for the cleaning; don’t expect too much onlininess from me until Wednesday, really.

Last night I spent time signing up for All the Sweepstakes… mostly in the theory that, say, 25 grand for a kitchen remodel would be awesome.

Speaking of contests, ellenmillion: http://www.kolcraft.com/65-anniversary/sweepstakes.html Baby stuff contest!!

And a daily baby-stuff contests http://win.parents.com/?psrc=S10114EO75D045

And a giant directory of sweepstakes: http://www.winprizesonline.com/

And now I go off to scrub my new bathroom. And figure out where to put the cat box.

How’s your Sunday going?
