One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Somehow I managed to hairline fracture my right wrist and when my doctor was performing an exam on me he accidentally fractured it the rest of the way. I’m supposed to have a CAT scan performed, but because of the holiday weekend pretty much everything is closed tomorrow and they’re going to make me wait until next week. Most of the waiting is just so they can make sure that my insurance will cover the CAT scan cost. Realistically, all I know is that they gave me pain killers that currently aren’t even working. I’m hoping they can do something quickly so that I can get back to work.

In a way this is really bad timing since I really need to work and I have schoolwork at the same time. Whatever happens though it could have always been a lot worse. On top of all that I have a consultation this coming week because I need to have all four of my wisdom teeth extracted. We also finally received the appraisal back on the house and we are actually going to have it redone because it came in about $11,500 less than the offer we placed, and everyone who we’ve asked about it agreed that the appraisal was done incorrectly. I’d rather pay another $455 than trying to come up with the extra $11,500 that would be expected if we accepted the first appraisal.

Aside from all that things have been good. The marketing class is really paying off in the way of grades. It’s not exactly easy but it’s a manageable level of work. I spent my weekend at my aunt and uncle’s because they were having their 10th anniversary party and they needed a lot of help. They ended up needing a bar tender since their bartender got sick right before the party. Other than that things have been the same John and I have just been working and we rarely get to see each other because our schedules conflict. At least the weather and things have been pretty nice the past couple weeks.


A wonderful Anniversary

As I sit here looking around me I realize that I should be doing more. It doesn’t seem like I can ever manage to catch up with the things that I should be doing. I know I currently have 12 assignments that I need to work on for school. All of which I’m sure will be relatively time consuming. There are also a decent chunk of household chores that I need to catch up on as well. Our living room is pretty disorganized at the moment and I want to have everything straightened up for when John comes home. I want to be able to share my achievements with him. The past few days with him have been amazing. Yesterday we went gun shop hopping for our one year anniversary. We came across an M38 which I bought mainly for John, but also for myself. This was a first for me since I have never done the paperwork for a firearm before. It was a really interesting experience. Then after that we got taco bell and I ended up buying John an underfold AK, which I can already tell he loves. I’m not even sure how long he played with it last night before we went to sleep. As he was playing with them I noticed that he kept switching back and forth between the two new guns, almost like he wasn’t sure which he liked more. It was ADORABLE. After we bought him the AK we stopped at the Altoona mall and I got a couple new pairs of flip flops since I am down to two pairs that are close to breaking. He also bought me new leggings since the ones I have need replaced. On top of that he let me pick out a ring. It was a little more than either of us planned on spending but it’s beautiful and I love it. He still has it hidden somewhere however, and I can’t wait until he actually surprises me with giving it to me. Even though I know what the ring looks like it doesn’t take away from any of the wonderment that surrounds the entire thing for me. I actually like that he let me pick it out so that I’m not disappointed with what I get. Not that I think he would disappointment me, but so that it doesn’t happen anyway. I love John to death and I’m so glad that I have him in my life.
