Sept 15 2010 - I am recovered from my barnacle trauma...now I am just enjoying the delight in dealing with all the scabs all over both legs. I am just glad the swollen itch thing has passed. Gross little creatures those barnacles.
Now I am getting a cold which is annoying but not the end of the world. Ayla went in for her 1st round of vaccinations on Monday...with heavy heart the deed was done – 5 shots in all. She will need 2 more appts in the following months to finish up the rest. She was brave seeing that she is quite unfamiliar with needles and I don’t think she will be all that worried about future needling now as it did not bother her too much. She didn’t watch like I do but she managed fine. It helped having a humorous Russian male nurse administering the shots for sure. While I did not have the same fear I experienced when she was small over the whole thing I cannot help but feel very apprehensive about it. If she ends up with MS or some fucked up neurological BS thing as an adult I will always wonder. Ugh. It was ultimately her choice to go forward with it –if it were up to me I would have for her the Hep B shot and that’s it.
Woke up to the glorious sound of the cat retching this morning...my 1st words are “IS THE CAT ON THE BED?” – No. Good. Barf at your leisure animal. So I get up walk out to the living room, promptly stepping in the throw up – awesome. Thank you cat. You are great. I especially enjoyed it b/c while we were away the cat went kinda coo-coo for cocoa puffs and decided peeing in Ayla’s room would be a good idea...along with the vomiting of course. I spent Sunday steam cleaning Ayla’s carpet – looks great but the smell still lingers a little tiny bit...but not as bad at least. I think I will spend Sat. doing that spot again a few times and then do the entrance and the living room before returning the machine to my girlfriend. Handy machine I must say! The DIRT taken outta Ayla’s carpet was NASTY.
Sept 16 2010 – Not dead yet...discovered black cherry cough drops...yay 4 me. It is Thursday and I will be busy at work so it should go fast at least thank gawd. Tomorrow I have testing to do for a job which I expect to fail miserably at....”We are inviting you to a written test session on Friday, September 17th. This test is being administered to clarify your skill level using Advanced Excel, compiling statistical and summary reports, and working in complex spreadsheets and graphs.“ This is not my strong suit at all...so it should be a proper gong show. I don’t even know wtf Advanced Excel is...Excel in general I can manoeuvre around but nothing fancy – I have been meaning to get better at it but it’s so...friggin...unappealing.
Watched the new Survivor last night...haven’t watched it for a few years but thought I’d give it a go...I do enjoy the show if I catch it from the start of the season. Donna and I texted through the whole thing making comments and laughing at the people with their junk getting blurred out on day 1! Hahaha I hate it that Donna lives so far from me now....hate hate hate.
EDIT: There Ayla - Feel Better?
