My PA lied about the Pill stopping my bleeding. I've only _not_ bled two of the past ten days, which makes bleeding every other week before she decided birth control pills would make me better look downright pleasant. Just over ten days until I can make an appointment with a real doctor, at which point I'll probably have been bleeding continuously for two weeks. Whee.

Himself gave me a new pair of ear defenders for my birthday but they're in the car. Hopefully he'll get a dinner break tonight so then I can have a few hours without having to hear full-volume tantruming because I'm trying to clean/pack more than I'm playing with her right now.

I've come to the conclusion that the best way to get things packed since Himself is not helping (and it's partly his fault we're not doing a partial TMO) is to throw away everything I can't come up with a reason to keep or someplace/one to sell, donate or recycle it. sage_and_sea, I'll get the list of toys typed up sometime this week since I have to wait until midget's napping to go through them.

I'm going to start turning the phone ringer off until noon because waiting up for Himself to get home (he was supposed to get home at a reasonable this week) means I'm up until 0400, when I fall asleep regardless of whether he's gotten home. I know we're _supposed_ to have the phone available when he's home, but when the phone rings before noon here it's either a telemarketer (usually dead noise when I pick up), the base clinic accidentally dialing me, or in today's case, kenwestervelt. He got promoted, leave congratulatory comments in his journal.

And to close with more good news, the Pizza in Paradise numbers from our Papa John's order a few weeks ago turned out to be good for a free order of chicken strips and a free order of breadsticks, so we'll be trying those chickenstrips with tonight's order. After dinner I'll set something up in the slow cooker so I'm not trying to figure out what to thaw at 3 PM for tomorrow's dinner. I should plan the next several days' menu so I don't pack anything I need when I'm working on the kitchen.

Did you like the chickenstrips?
While working there I was quite impressed by them. Very good, for fast food chicken.

I did! Robert left me half the order and I'm glad he left the honey mustard sauce because the buffalo sauce was too vinegary for me. I'm not sure I would have bought them without the promo, though -- my major Papa John's splurge is their cheese sticks. I usually eat those instead of pizza.

The buffalo sauce never impressed me. It was just tabasco sauce. *shrug*

Oh god, cheese sticks. Having the ability to make my own was SUCH a bad thing. Next time you order some, see if they will put bacon on the cheesesticks for the price of a side order of something (we used to ring up a side of jalapenos and then just not include them). Bacon cheesesticks are deliciously horrible :)

Sunshine, don't sweat it at all. If it's easier to just toss it, feel freely ~ I know how stressful this has been for you, on top of not feeling well!

I wouldn't toss toys -- if I didn't get them listed to see which ones you want, I'd take them over to the children's consignment store we're taking Laurel's old crib to.

I've purposely not made any plans this weekend so we can't get distracted like we were last weekend with the trip to Raleigh and then being lazy afterward.

Incidentally, Laurel's room is the easiest to pack -- aside from making sure everything's clean before it's boxed, she just has a toddler bed, toys and her dollhouse to pack since her clothes are already stored in plastic bins in her closet.
