Remember last week?
Things have done a 180°. So far this week, I got great news. The poopshoot biopsy results...AMAZING. Nothing bad. I am good to go for another 50,000 miles or 5 years, which ever comes first. (as long as I remember to oil regularly--ewwww;) Then S1 reached another maturity milestone. He handled a negative situation with aplomb. (as I always tell S2 when I use "big words"...look it up). He has recovered from his wallet theft with no scars, and when told by a girl he was crushing on that she just wanted to be "friends" he didn't characteristically implode. He said ok, and told me about another girl he has been running into lately and he may ask her out. WOW. If you knew him, you would know why this makes me feel so damn good. S3 had to have three whopping teeth pulled this week. I was dreading it more than he was because having a whining, bloody drooling, guy around wasn't going to be my idea of a good time. He SAILED through it, only had about 4 hours of whining, only took one pain pill (which leaves 29 of the suckers for momma) and he is eating solid food already. He is my kid alright :) (Yeah, and by the way, what normal oral surgeon prescribes 30 strong pain pills for a 14 year old? Either S3 is amazing because he only needed one, or this doc is out of his gourd. Though, he was really hot. I mean REALLLLYYY hot. It's a good thing he didn't have to sedate me because I am sure I would have made an ass out of myself TELLING him how hot he was ;) Today, BigD's paycheck was auto-deposited and the amount was about 800 freaking dollars more than normal. I called him and he told me why (unfortunately it is a one shot deal) but it sure does make the weekly bill paying a more relaxing event. Hell, I may not even have to have my three stacks titled:: MUST PAY TODAY; CAN WAIT A LITTLE; and HA! TRY TO GET MY MONEY SUCKERS!. Then a girl that S2 went to high school with, just randomly showed up at the door, telling him that she heard through the grapevine he was thinking about selling his car. He owes his dad and I $700 for repairs we helped him with and she is offering $1500 so that puts $800 in his pocket (he paid $2100 two years ago, so technically he got two years out of it for $600)...he is a happy camper. I DO think though, that he will miss having wheels, so we will see what happens there, but hey, the rust bucket won't be parked in my way any more :) I have already warned him that my car is MY car, not OUR car. Also, BigD is leaving on Sunday for a 3 day conference so I will be shoving all the animals over to his side of the bed and I will blissfully sleep and not wake up with a bruised butt. Oh, I think I forgot to tell you that I one night last week he was moving around in his sleep and his knee kicked my butt so hard it left a bruise. He didn't believe me till I showed him. I told him that he had better hope one of these nights I don't start dreaming that I am squeezing oranges :) That's my week in a nutshell from the nuthouse.
