I'm so torn. I guess I'm really ready to be adding more money to our income so we can finally buy a house. Renting is such a money pit. Thousands of dollars a year and in the end, nothing to show for it. My current abode is so full of stuff it's driving me crazy. I think the minimalist in me is having a breakdown. I want to go through my house with a trash bag and throw away everything that I don't use on a daily basis. Now I understand why Postmen go crazy, it never ends. For them it's the mail. For me it's the laundry and the dishes. As soon as I think I have a handle on things everything gets out of control. It just keeps coming. I mean, seriously, how can four people possibly wear so much clothing?
I think my house would stay clean if there was never anyone here to mess it up.
Maybe I wasn't cut out for this job.... that or I need a vacation.

The first one occurred when I spent most of the night sleeping on one side causing all the drainage to collect, causing an ear infection, this is attractive I know, but I do have a point just stick with me. By noon that next day it was better. No big deal. Two days later I got another one, on the other side. I assumed it was caused the same way so I took some dayquil and went about my business. But this one felt different and by noon that day I was in so much pain I could hardly move. This pain resulted in a ruptured eardrum a few hours later. *see footnote
I spent the next few days with cotton in my ear to keep the drainage from leaking down my face. YUCK! In the midst of this I made an unavoidable trip to the beautiful mountains of New Mexico which means pressure change much like riding in an airplane where your ears pop. This was a pleasant experience. Since that time I have only been able to hear muffled sounds out of my right ear. I'm a little concerned. The stuff I read online said it should take 1-2 weeks to heal on it's own, in some cases antibiotics may be needed to take care of the virus. Well, I've felt better for a week and a half now, but still can't hear. It was three weeks last Thursday.
Should I be worried? Has anyone else experienced this? Will my hearing ever come back?
* Currently my husband and I have no health insurance. Too freakin' expensive. So it would have cost me a small fortune and a whole day, which I did not have, in a waiting room to see some random doctor. Therefore, I consulted WebMD and got what I felt was adequate information and proceeded with course of action they suggested.
Whenever Molly Jenson sends out an email she always ends it with a short list of things she is currently loving. I like this idea so here is my list...
- Target brand stuff... it's just like the name brand only usually 1/2 the price
- the Mr. Clean eraser (the target brand one) 'cause it gets the crayon off the wall
- WhichWich in the mall - they have TASTY sammies
- Front porches to sit on and enjoy a summer evening
- Pot(providence)luck after church
And one pet peeve...
Kids who don't respect authority/other people in general. I have a million first hand experiences but I'll share just one. Tonight while sitting in the mall food court eating my dinner a young man walked by with some friends. He was carrying a shopping bag which hit me upside the head as he passed. He knew it hit me and didn't even say excuse me or I'm sorry. He just kept walking. What a punk.
