Things are mostly back to normal. I’ve been feeling fine for a week or so now, so that’s definitely an improvement. I had been sick for almost a month and I lost quite a bit of weight… which I won’t be complaining about any time soon! I’m happy to be feeling well again, though. Spending the majority of your days sleeping is not fun. Even the week after I knew I was well, I kept having to take naps. It was almost as if my body hadn’t completely recovered yet. I don’t know what I had, I never went to the doctor, I’m just glad it’s gone!
Now that I’m better, I’m getting ready to head home for a week. We’re leaving this Saturday. My husband will, of course, return home on Sunday and then come back the next weekend to get me. He can’t take the time off work and we have a trip to Key West looming at the end of October that he needs the time off for. I’ll be switched to seasonal, so hopefully I can get the time off, too. I’ll make it work… there’s no way I’m missing that trip for my crappy side job.
The husband testified at his first trial today. We didn’t think he’d be home until around 8pm, so my mother-in-law took me to my lady doctor appointment and I helped her with some ACS stuff. I really miss following her around and helping out. I didn’t get paid for it, but it was so much fun. I’ve been feeling extra lonely lately, so it was nice to be out and about. I’m a strange person–I’m not social, yet I get weird bouts of loneliness. I attribute it to being so far away from my family. I’m so happy I can finally visit!
Money is tight around here, but we’re making it work. I’m almost afraid to look at our finances for this month. I know I have to, but I really don’t want to. I’m also sad because we had some extra money saved back because one of the husband’s coworkers got a rebel kit and got a lens that she didn’t want. She was going to sell it to us for dirt cheap, but another girl heard her talk about it first and after waffling around about it, decided she wanted it last-minute, sigh. The lens wasn’t amazing, but I could really use a telephoto lens, no matter how cheap.
I used some of the money we had saved up to get my hair cut. For girls who enjoy having their hair cut properly, it costs us around 30-40 dollars, not including the tip. So, I went and had my hair cut for the first time in six months! I now have bangs. With my hair properly waved out, it looks quite good… but without it, I look like a seventies chick. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I definitely like it when it is styled. At least it makes my round head less… huge looking!
I’m bored, so I’m going to go bother the husband. We’re still waiting to hear back about the job we applied for. I look forward to the day where I don’t have to fret over finances… sigh. It’s typical to have some worry, but my worry is to the point of not sleeping and getting so obsessive I am budgeting everything down to a ridiculous extent. Worse yet… I have to get my eyes re-examined for a whopping one hundred and thirty-nine dollars! That’s the cheapest we can get around here and we have no eye insurance, sigh. I can’t get new contacts (of which I am out of, both eyes) until I have an up-to-date prescription. That’s so lame…
We’re supposed to be working on upgrading my computer, since it needs it and my husband has gotten a new power supply ($100+), a new hard drive ($70-80), and something else that broke, but I can’t remember. This wouldn’t be an issue, but shit on his PC keeps breaking and mine is overdo for an upgrade. His PC is ten times better than mine and I want to play Skyrim, damn it. My computer has also started taking fits, sigh. I’m afraid we won’t have enough money to put into the parts it needs before it craps out completely. It’s done me good for the past four years, though. Where my husband has had all kinds of issues, mine has ran like a dream… until recently, sigh.
