Dismay And Despair

I’m still fighting off the cold I picked up this weekend. Waking up in a 62ºF house this morning (I didn’t put the heat on last night, and sometimes living in the ITP Estate seems like camping) probably hasn’t helped.

What’s really got me down today is the thought that Thing 2 is not going away. Thing 1, while looking as if it’ll leave a small crater behind, is okay, but the area around Thing 2 is still swollen. I cannot articulate the amount of despair that this is bringing to me and the thought of a Round 2 of surgery is unconscionable at this time. I’ll be calling the doctor who performed the surgery and will most likely have to return to him for an investigation. Oh joy.

I’m late today, time to work. Hope your life is going better than mine…

  1. On a much brighter note:

    If you are/were a fan of Neutral Milk Hotel and want to relive the experience reborn in a current day ensemble, check out GASHCAT — I swear you won’t be able to tell the difference.

  2. And if you haven’t yet, visit the world’s leading search engine Google.

    I googled something early this morning and it cracked me up.

    The good news is the refi of JEFDSDR went off without a hitch, the bad news is we begin again with a 30 year note- BoA is making out like a bandit. Bas. Tards.

    Other than that effort, and a celebratory sushi lunch, it was a very relaxing day. Would have been nice to get a ride in outdoors, but certainly not in that howling gale that was yesterday. A half hour on the trainer was plenty, TYFM.

    We’re off on an adventure this weekend! Debbie has talked me into going to Lexington KY for the Rolex 3 day event- We’ll miss dressage (oh darn) and show jumping (which is fun to watch) but will be there for the cross country on Saturday.

    The hotel has a 50 pound limit on dogs.. I hope Farley knows how to look skinny.


  4. Congrats, Steve!

    Farley is not your dog, he’s your child. 😉

  5. Steve says:

    So we’ve been working on Farley to sit by the door when he wants to go out. I have to say it a few times, but he’s kind of getting it. Last night Tate (the cat) did it!!

    And Izzie jumped up on the sofa with me and walked across the keyboard of my laptop. Before I could pick her up, she managed to turn the display 90 degrees. Took me almost an hour to figure out how to swap it back- had to use Debbie’s computer to look it up. But I know now!! (cntl, alt, up arrow).

    well – if you just pay a little extra each month when you have some extra cash, you can bring that 30 years down quite a bit at least.
    That’s what we are doing, I decided I’m just going to leave ours at the 4.25%, I might be able to get it a little lower somewhere, but I just don’t feel like dealing with it, so paying a little extra will bring ours down to closer to 15 years (according to the calculator on the Suntrust website).

    We watched Moneyball last night, that was an entertaining movie. I’m not a big baseball fan, but I found it interesting & the fact that it is a “true” story.

  7. Paulie [eatl/ga] says:

    Yeah, I am leaving mine at 4.25% too. I pay any extra $200 / month toward principal.

    I’ve been listening to Michael Caine’s autobiography. It’s fairly entertaining and has got me I retested in watching some of his early movies.

  8. Debbie says:

    Well ours went from 6.75 to 4.5 so I’m pretty happy with our savings. When I’m once again employed we can sock some to the principal. Steve failed to mention that our closing attorney was a Russion Bond girl. I’d say that was a bonus!

    I really enjoyed Moneyball and I’m not a huge baseball or Brad Pitt fan.

    Paulie so sorry about Thing 2. Was it the one that was erupting before the surgery?

  9. Steve says:

    I neglected to mention the nice looking lawyer, but Bond girl? Nyet. And I don’t really find a serious Russian accent very attractive.

  10. Yeah, Thing 2 was the one which erupted. I should call the doctor today, but may give it one more day.
