I'm A Big Liar!

Obviously, I haven't posted again since I said I'd post many weekends back. Actually, it's been 2 months since I posted last - I am totally a slacker!! I could give every excuse in the world, but I won't. Let's just say I've been busy and this isn't my highest priority.

So what's been going on?

Josh is still not back to work. He was supposed to go back a while ago, but his doctor wouldn't sign a release that he is back to 100%. He signed a release, but it had some stipulations, and Josh's work didn't like that. So Josh talked the Dr. into giving him a release, but then they had already brought somebody back in his place. Now we are patiently waiting. There is a position in Weber, but I really don't want him driving an hour and a half home when he is working until 2 am. Just not safe. And not worth it to have to pay for a hotel or somewhere for him to stay so he is not driving home in the middle of the night. We have heard rumors that they are putting together another crew at the point of the mountain, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. If nothing happens by the end of the month, we'll start looking for something new. We just don't want to give up his benefits (pension, etc) that he has acquired the last 2 years. So I guess we'll just wait and see...

Update on his knee - it's basically totally trashed. We already knew that he needed a full knee replacement, but the dr is trying to put it off as long as possible. On Josh's last appointment, they took a new xray, and his knee is even worse since his scope a few months ago. So the plan right now is to have a pretty big surgery this next winter - a surgery he will have to have before they can do the replacement. He will need about 3 months of recovery time, so we are waiting for the winter so Josh can take the layoff again. Hopefully he will survive until then. I don't know how long after the replacement will be, but this will be the next step.

We're going to New York!! I'm super excited. When Josh told me that they are tearing down Yankee Stadium after this year, I knew he would love to go, so I started planning. The day tickets went on sale, we bought 2 pairs. Then I found out that a co-workers dad has season tickets, and he sold us some killer tickets. We have 2 pairs of tickets to sell now, but since all the tickets sold out within like 15 minutes, we should be able to make some money off of them. Good thing, because New York is really expensive these days. It's been probably 4 years since I was there last, but I know hotels weren't this bad then. We're hoping to get a good deal on priceline, but so far we haven't had any luck. I booked another hotel that we can cancel if we get a room on priceline, but from the looks of it, there are a lot of conventions going on that weekend, so we might be out of luck for a cheap room. We leave next Friday, so the countdown has started!

I quit my second job. I worked for a total flake, and the money vs. stress was totally not worth it. I am pretty much done now, but now I have to start paying for my own internet, and I'm gonna have to buy a desk. But I can't tell you what a relief it is! Now I don't feel like I have to go home from work and work some more. I would rather spend my time working on Scrapifieds, anyway!

Hmm, I'm trying to think of anything else going on, but I think that about wraps it up. Makes it seem like I'm not so busy afterall...
