Breathing Into That Paper Bag


I know it's only Tuesday but frankly, it feels like it should be Thursday. I try not to talk about work but BOY it is very hard not to. There is LOTS and LOTS of stuff going on at work.

It's mentally exhausting.

I am seriously considering putting in some overtime on Saturday to just catch up. The issues that are coming up on a daily basis are simply killing any chance I have at getting the backlog of stuff that needs to get done, moving.

I can see your eyes glazing over, so I'll give it a rest.

In fun news. I had a dentist appointment today. It's never fun having your teeth and gums picked and scraped. To add insult to injury (literally) there's the cleaning AND floss for good measure. No cavities. And the potential that the crown I need but can't afford without insurance assistance (think over $1,000 for a FAKE tooth, which must be made of gold or something), looks like it might be covered at 80%. Cross your fingers for me will ya.

My son has this project where he has to create a square block, similar to what was used in the Mesopotamia days. After much discussion two blocks were made. One with dirt, clay and straw. And. One with rice crispies, sand and glue. The first one was my son's idea. The second was mine. We now have to hope that in two days it will dry and harden. I'm thinking the oven probably will need to get involved to dry but we shall assess the situation tomorrow.

If the block can hold up through three tests, he will get an A+.

Always something.

The baby continues to be afraid of everything in the house. Tonight it was the towel hanging over the shower curtain. I finally had to take it down because it was preventing her from going into her room and rescuing her baby dolls.

I can't make this stuff up people.

There was some more party discussion. The Dance Dance Revolution Game Pad for Xbox was taken out and the batteries replaced. There was some testing and it appears ready for the party. I picked up extra brownie and cake mix. Nothing says party like baked goods.

While I do realize tomorrow is Wednesday, I'd really like it to be Friday.
