So the FAFSA people say that in order to get financial aid for this semester for my online classes, I have to amend my 2005 taxes and get them done as Married. Since we were married on New Years Eve we were not married the majority of 2005 so we did our taxes as single. Now they say that won't work. WTF?

So FAFSA gets a Fail grade from me. I don't want to amend, so my only other option is to wait until July when I can use my 2006 taxes.

My job gets a Fail also. I always feel so stupid when my manager talks to me. I work at a hotel. The last hotel I worked at, I was told that it is a good thing if all our rooms or the majority had guaranteed reservations. But this guy wanted rooms not reserved, "in case" we have walk-ins. Now if guaranteed reservations don't show up and don't cancel, then we can charge the credit card they used to hold their room, AND we can sell the room to a walk-in and double the room rate we get. So the fact that I do everything the smart way, makes me dumb. GRRR! I am currently PT job hunting again, or totally awesome FT job hunting.

FAIL=Hayfever season. I think I sneezed 803 times yesterday. I was at work last night and only had those paper thin kleenex to absorb the least amount of snot possible. I used half the box. Today is only slightly better.

Pass=McDs happy meal toys. They have the Wizard of Oz dolls in them now. I love WoO so much, I need ALL these figurines. I got Dorothy and Glenda the Good witch already. Just need everything else. If you have doubles and want to send me some, I would allow it. :)

Pass=Not having to write my autobiography until July, I guess.

Pass=Caramel Macchiato and Low-fat Cinnamon Swirl Coffee cake from Starbucks.

Pass=My main toon on WoW hit level 70 on Sunday. With no help from Batman. Now for the uber lootage.

1. Randomness is my new theme. Its quick and I don't have to think of a whole topic to write about.

2. I am starting to take online classes on Monday to get my associates in Graphic Design. Not sure where I will go from there, just know that I want to be able to edit web pages and pictures.

3. My first classes are Skills for Learning in an Information Age, and Effective Persuasive Writing.

4. I already have my first assignment and that is to write my Autobiography.

5. I am hoping that I turn in my assignment to my Effective Persuasive Writing instructor and that he will tell me that I don't need to take that class. Pass.

6. My son is excitedly watching The Land Before Time. I am glad that he likes the same old movies that I liked when I was a kid.

7. I work 3 days this week, and 5 days next week.

8. My couch that we ordered and fully paid for is still not here. Why do furniture stores stock mainly white? Of course I ordered the awesome sectional in Cobblestone, aka, gray. They said 12 weeks for delivery. ARGH! I want it now!

9. My Warcraft character is now level 69 and 1/4. Almost to 70. Then I can go for Uber loot.

10. Anyone want to make up an autobiography for me. RAK awarded for best one. :P

Stole this from the Genderist.


1. Went to the endocrinologist Thursday. He prescribed an antibiotic because he thinks my pain in my parotid gland may be caused by an infection. He also took blood and did a sonogram. Then he took me off my thyroid meds for 4 weeks until I have a scan. He put me on a different kind of thyroid hormone that won't interfere with the scan and hopefully make me not so hypothyroid.

2. My face hurts. Is it killing you?

3. My little Superman is 8 months old today. Somehow it doesnt seem like he should be that old yet. Superman is now really crawling and has begun to pull up a bit on the couch and coffeetable. He only gets to his knees though and hasn't lifted himself up to his feet yet, but he is still tall enough on his knees to pull everything off the table and the couch. Big brother has had to relocate his coloring area.

4. I am at work. I have had to work the last three weekends in a row.

5. On Friday, I got my washer and dryer and queen size mattress delivered.

6. Friday night, Batman and I went out to buy new sheets for our new mattress. We settled on jersey knit sheets for me and a fabulously soft down comforter for him. I love compromise. Especially when I like the end result.

7. I got to do laundry in my own house!!

8. We also got a new water heater put in on Friday. The long hot showers are sooo wonderful right now. But then my shower head holder broke, so I have to hold the showerhead the whole time.

9. Spiderman is loving preschool. The other day on the way home from school, he told Batman, "Red means stop and green means go and Yellow means take it slow." He is so funny. It will be a sad day when he grows out of saying, "FridgerFridger."

10. The time change sucks. I like sleep. I like to sleep a lot.

Tempro Mandibular Joint

I have this annoying pain in my left cheek. I went to my ear, nose, and throat doc and she thinks its TMJ or lockjaw. But I think not. It does NOT feel like my jaw in any way. I can open and close my mouth and there is no clicking or popping sounds and chewing and talking doesn't hurt. What makes the pain worse is when I put food in my mouth and saliva starts coming out. It feels like the gland right in front of my ear, over my jaw, and the gland right under my earlobe, are going to explode. And then if I manage to eat more than three bites, I get a very salty taste in my mouth about an hour later.

I am afraid that my cancer has spread to my salivary glands or maybe its just a blocked saliva duct or whatever you call it. In no way do I think its TMJ cause I had no precursors of this disorder, like a blow to the jaw or grinding or clenching of teeth. It just doesn't FEEL like that to me. I can clearly feel the difference in the glands on the left and right. The left feels swollen and hard. I am just aggravated that I paid to go see this doc cause I thought she would listen to me, but she just felt my neck and said, oh, its TMJ, here's a muscle relaxer.

The muscle relaxer she gave me doesn't even work. It makes my lower back feel better after a night of standing at the front desk at the hotel, but if I put a piece of candy in my mouth and don't even chew. It frickin hurts like the devil.

Plus side is that I have lost 5 lbs since Thursday when the pain started. Less than pre baby weight! Woo Hoo!

Anyway, I have an appointment with my endocrinologist Thursday (I guess thats today) at 3, so I will mention it to him and see what he thinks. The purpose of the visit to him is to schedule my next thyroid scan and see if we killed all the little buggers.
Why do you have to schedule and appointment to schedule a scan? Goodbye money....LOL

OK well everyone hope for no more cancer!!
And sorry for the complaining post!
Here is your consolation prize for putting up with it.....
Kiss my Bass. Get it?
