Priming Job and apartment

On Saturday Richard, his mom and I painted mom's living room with primer, we did 2 coats of the stuff on Saturday then Richard and I came back on Sunday and put a 3rd coat on. It took three coats of primer to cover up the paint my dad chose over 18 years ago. Yesterday Richard and I went back and put her living room back together again. It's tons brighter in there now which is nice, the only part we didn't paint was the stair ways, we figured that would wait till Richards dad fixes the one wall.

We are still waiting to hear from Home Depot about Richard getting a full time job with them, he has applied for a few but they go so freaking slow about interviewing for the positions it's driving me crazy. We are waiting on them about moving cause he applied for a job at the Home Depot by where we live now and if he gets that one and we can afford to stay here why not cause he will be really close to work. But we can only wait for so long before we will decide to move. We did find an apartment complex we wouldn't mind living in, it's cheaper then where we are now, only draw backs are the location cause its kinda out of the way so if mom was to pick me up it would take longer, and it's only 1 bedroom. On the bright side the complex allows cats as is, they don't need to be declawed. I can't believe how many places here will allow cats but they have to be declawed and fixed with proof from your vet. I wouldn't declaw Kramer now because he is so used to having his claws, nor would a vet declaw him because he is old. I wish people were not so against people having pets when renting out places.

Just my luck

So I totally jinxed myself with my last blog. I'm sick yet again and you guessed it, it's another sinus infection. I have an appointment at 2:30 today to get meds for it, before mom leaves to go on another trip. At least this time I got it before she left and not after she left, makes life a little easier. Now if I could just find something to take the pressure away till the appointment I would be happy.

There is officially snow on the mountains now, so winter is just a few short weeks away. We haven't gotten cold enough at night to frost over yet but we are getting there. We prob wont get any actual snow on the ground till prob end of October, first of November but I could be wrong, that is just my guess at this moment in time. It has been a pretty cool fall so who knows.

Today at 11am we Alaskans get to find out how much our PFD is going to be this year. Richard and I have decided our big money buy is going to be a new bed. We keep putting it off every year saying we can go one more year but we can't do that this year as our bed is in really sad shape and both of us are having problems falling asleep and getting a good nights sleep once we do fall asleep. Other then that I think we are going to try and save the rest of the money.

It's that time again

Richard finished up working for his dad on Sunday. I got to spend Saturday with him but he had to go out to the valley on Sunday to finish up the floor. He worked 72 hours in one week, and that's just what her worked with his dad, add his 22 hours from Home Depot he works in a week and he worked a total of 94 hours in a week. Yikes that's a lot of hours for a week. Yesterday brought on another dentist appointment for Richard as well, he had to get a tooth pulled that he broke back in May. He stayed home from work today because he was in too much pain, but will be back to work tomorrow.

I came down with a sinus infection last week but am well on the mend from it and feel pretty dang good at the moment. Thankfully it wasn't as bad as some of the ones I have had in the past. I can't believe I'm about to say this but I rather get a case strep throat then get another sinus infection. At least if I get Strep my ears don't get bothered by it at all. But sadly the last time I had strep was back in high school, got it 3 times in a row in 3 months, they threatened to take my tonsils out, but when I finally got better they decided against it and I haven't gotten it since. I know it hurts really bad but I rather deal with that pain, then deal with not being able to hear. I also believe anyone that deals with me on a regular basis would agree that they rather deal with me not being able to talk that much, then having to repeat themselves over and over and over again. Am I right mom? Though knowing mom her response will be, I rather have you not get sick at all.

We are getting into what I like to call my sick months, it gets cold I get sick. Last winter I didn't do to bad actually so maybe that is changing finally. Like my doctors said when I was a kid, maybe I finally out grew it. Though I did get my changing of the weather cold which as I stated above was the sinus infection, maybe I can get away this winter with out getting really sick, or falling down a lot *knocks on wood*

It's worth it in the end.

This last weekend Richard was out in the valley helping his dad put floor down in a house he is working on and I stayed home here in Anchorage. It was the first time in years that Richard and I spent the weekend away from each other. Saturday I pretty much stayed home and just was kinda lazy besides having to clean up broken glasses that Kramer broke and pieces went everywhere then I went and helped mom pick out some fabric and was brought back home. Sunday I spent the day with mom cause I had to do laundry, we ended up going up to Deb's house to drop off a quilt project my mom finished. While on the way up to Deb's place mom got called saying she had to be at work by 3 for an endo case at 4. So she dropped me off on her way to work and I watched some dvds and ended up going to bed at about 11 cause I was dog tired.

I was so tired Sunday because I didn't go to bed till 2am on Saturday cause I wasn't tired/couldn't sleep because Richard wasn't there snoring next to me. Plus some drunk SOB called my cell phone 4 times at 4 am. So the sleep was much needed.

Yesterday however I was Bored out of my mind all day. Mom had gotten called into work bright and early and as it turns out didn't get to bed till midnight, so she spent all day at the hospital. Richard didn't get home till after 8pm and my usual chat buddy during the day went on a hike with her boyfriend since they both had the day off. So that left me to fend for myself in stuff to do, I played video games watched some dvds, went back to video games, got onto the computer but nothing held my attention for very long. When Richard finally did get home he took a shower, messed around on the internet then went to bed. so I got maybe 30 minutes with him last night.

All this week he has to go out to the valley and work with his dad, once he gets done with his job at Home Depot. So basically he goes from work to the valley, I don't get to see him till he gets home at night. I keep telling myself the extra money is worth it, and it is. This week is just going to be very long.

Tonight Richard and I are taking mom to the airport so she can go down to Philly till the 12th of the month. Then later this month she is going down to Oregon I believe as well for some nursing conference so she is a busy traveler this month.
