An update from my iPod

Just a fast update while laying in bed playing on my iPod. I didn't have to go in at all for jury duty this is by far the best experience I have had with it. Let's hope the next time I get it it goes just as smooth.

Other then that the weather has gotten colder but still no snow to be had, I figure it should snow any time now.

I have been reading a lot lately, I have finished 5 books this week, yay me!

Well that's it for now, Im tired of typing with only 2 fingers.

Jury Duty Week

This week is my Jury Duty week and so far so good, haven't had to go in yet. Just have to call in today and tomorrow then I will be done. This is of course if they don't call me in for a case. In other news I'm pretty much back to being healthy, my cough is still hanging around but is just like a normal cough now, so no more barking for me. I also seem to have my hearing almost all the way back again so that is nice as well, I hate having to ask people to repeat themselves so I can hear them. The down side of me being better, mom now has the cold.

In bummer news, Richards hours are being cut back down to 22 hours a week again. They have hired 2 new people for him to train for his job. I wish they would give him a permanent full time job there already. I'm getting frustrated with them, it takes them no time at all to find replacement people for people that leave but take their sweet ass time filling other positions that Richard has applied for. We had decided a while back to give them till January then I think he will start looking for other places to work, while I find a cheaper place for us to live.

The End is Near

I am actually starting to get better, thank god, it's about freaking time! I have been sick since the beginning of September. My nose is no longer plugged up, my couch is all but gone, Still on an inhaler for it but only have to use it once or twice a day instead of 4 times a day, my ears are showing some improvement as well. The end of this sickness is near.

I have been wanting to bake as of recently, I get this way every fall and winter, I want to bake and knit and cross stitch basically do all stay indoor activities that I like to do. I'm like my mom in that way, every fall when the weather gets cold she starts working on quilting projects and making doilies.

Other then that Saturday we are going to an Aces hockey game with mom, should be fun. I love going to the hockey games, I always have a great time when we can go.

What a fall I have had

Sadly I am on meds again. Went to the doctor on Monday because my ear was still bugging me and I developed a cough over the night. I have air bubbles in my left ear which is causing the pain, basically I don't have an ear infection but if I had waited any longer I probably would have ended up with one. I am on 20 days of pills that I have to take 2 pills 3 times a day. That's a lot of freaking pills to take, never mind the fact that I can't lay down for at least 10 minutes after taking them. I asked my mom about that and she said it was a first she had heard of that, so what the heck is up with that? like why is 10 minutes the magic number? like if I lay down at 9min and 59 seconds am I going to explode?

Jury Duty is coming up just around the corner for me. I guess on the bright side I will be healthy for it since I will still be popping all those freaking pills. I don't mind if I get put on a jury, it will make my life interesting for a little bit, plus I will get paid for sitting on my butt listening to people talk. On the down side, I would have to find a ride to and from court and the seats prob wont be all that nice to sit on. I told mom my number that I have to listen for when I call in every night and she said I was screwed because I got a low number that I will be called in. But that doesn't start till the 23rd of this month so we will have to wait and see what happens there.

Yesterday Marked a year since Richard was let go from Lowe's,. Where the heck did that year go? So I guess now if he really wanted to go back there he could apply and see if they would hire him back. We have talked about it a couple of times, he doesn't seem to want to go back though because of how much stuff has changed with the company. He does seem to like Home Depot, just not how slow they are about filling job positions.

What a week

This last week has been a rather busy one for us. Monday I hung out with mom and helped her pick out some fabric for one of the two quilts she is making at the moment. It took us going to 4 quilt/fabric stores to find the fabric that I wanted for the quilt and I'm super glad that we found it cause it will look amazingly cute when done. Tuesday we had to go to Joann Fabrics to get you guessed it more fabric for said quilts, then Richard and I helped mom haul some furniture, then we took her old couch and an old mattress of ours to the dump, then we went to the first of 2 Aces hockey games called paint the rink pink, where all the money raised goes to cancer research. Wednesday was the 2nd game of paint the rink pink, by the way the Aces won both games!!! Thursday was pfd day, we got our money and then went shopping, cause we wanted to get it done and over with before the weekend and all the stores being crazy busy like they are when the pfd's come out every year. Friday was Richards birthday, we went out to dinner at Outback with mom, Yesterday Richards parents treat us and mom to dinner at the Glacier Brew House, where we ran into our Friend Jenny who was having dinner with her hubby celebrating her birthday which was on the 4th. Today was laundry day, but other then that more relaxing then any other day this last week.

Richard and I both got iPod touches and I gotta say I am really liking them a lot. It can do everything the iPhone can but make calls. Mine has been going pretty much everywhere with me and I use it to get online to check in on Facebook if there is a wifi hotspot. Other then that we bought a few movies/tv shows that we like and got some food with our PFD money.

In other news, I'm not sure if I am coming down with an ear infection or not, my left ear is bothering me at the moment but I don't know if that is just my ear acting up or if it is the start of the ear infection. It feels like someone is poking my eardrum with a pin. I will decide when I wake up in the morning tomorrow if I need to go in or not. Richard is coming down with a cold and has been coughing and sneezing for the last 2 days. Nothing too bad so he will prob get over it in the next day or two.

Still no word on a full time job with Home Depot yet.
