It's been a while

So since I'm home today, I guess I'll post something. It's only been TWO MONTHS! sheesh and sheesh.

Everything is going fine around these parts. The job is ok, psi032 is fine. Even the cat is doing ok. 

-I just had my concert (I joined the Round Rock Community Choir).  It was fun, even if I don't like classical music.

-My insurance won't cover my allergy medication. They will, however, cover Immunotherapy (allergy injections).  I had my allergy test today to determine what I'm allergic to, and, let me tell you, the list is pretty long.  I was surprised I was allergic to some much stuff.  The offical word is cats, two different molds, dust mites, four types of grass, six types of trees and four types of ragweed.

I also got positives for Penicillin and Brazilnuts, but I don't believe those (my doctor said the Brazilnuts was probably false and I've never had an adverse reaction to penicillin based drugs.  My mother got so many false positives on her test it wasn't even funny).

So, I got the prick test on my back first.  That didn't hurt too bad.  Then they took the negatives from that and gave me shots under my skin on my arm.  Just like the TB test, but about twenty times.  That really freakin' hurt.  In fact, it's still a bit sore.  And I got the chills and some sickness.  Great.

So now that they know what I'm allergic to,  I've got to get the injection once a week for six months and then every other week after that for up to THREE YEARS.  AND the shots are meant to build up an immunity, not cure you, so I'll still be taking allergy medicine for the rest of my natural life (but much lower dosage, one would hope).  BAH.

-I'm coming home for Christmas from the 22-26.  I'm not happy about the time frame and I miss Holiday Shutdown.  A LOT.  Stupid banks only get Christmas Day.  It sucks.  But, at least my boss is nice enough to let me take unpaid time (since I haven't earned any paid time yet).

-I miss all of you guys.  Sometimes, I miss you more than psi032 is comfortable with.  He actually worries about ME, which is so not what I am used to.  I am the worrywart!  So, to rectify said situation, peeps must come 'avisit in 'aTexas.  We have a spare futon with a nice foam mattress.  It's even got it's own room (well, the office, but you get the point.) The couch is comfy.  We have games, DVDs, a DVR, good company.  What more could you want? (and that is my spiel for the day).

-I'm going to the spa this evening.  It's for the Officer's Wives Club, which I am not officially a member of, but close enough.  I hope I'm not too sore to enjoy it.

-NaNo is not going as well as I hoped.  I've got about 31,000 words.  I can pull it out, but I'll have to work hard to do it.

That's all I can think of to ramble about today.  Love you guys.



Glad everything's going well! Except for those allergies...hopefully those clear up with good medication and the shots.

Not sure what your plans are for Christmas weekend...I'm sure there'll be so much to do, but it would be so great to get everyone together for dinner...maybe the 23rd? I know Julie would be thrilled to see you for her birthday!

Hope to see you soooooooon!!!
Dinner on the 23rd will work!
Yay!! I'm so excited to see you:-) I've got it down in the Taylor family calendar!!
Does this mean you're *ahem* cooking? ;)
If that's what you'd like for your birthday dinner, I will be more than willing to cook and have family dinner at our house.

I will need to know how many will be attending, though, and what you'd like me to serve.

Hopefully nothing involving the oven...j/k;-)
Yay! You're back!!! :)
Hmmm...per Cheryl's comment, if you come wrapped in a bow, I would love to see you for my birthday. :)
I can definitely do something for your birthday! I'm going to see the Lion King in the afternoon, but my evening is free.
Yeah, Lion King!! JT and I are seeing that tonight--it's my wedding present from him:-) I'm hoping for a hot dinner at Pegasus, too...mmmmm.....

Anyway...cool that you're seeing it too!!
Didn't you go to Pegasus for the first time with us, before our grand date with RT? Or had you been there before?
I had been there before. It's my favorite restaurant downtown.
Yeah, it's my brother and sister-in-law's gift to us for Christmas. I don't know if psi032 will be available for dinner, but I will ask him.
