Subject:So Long and thanks for all the fish...
Time:11:27 am
I don't know how many people are left that read this LJ but here's the deal... I don't use LJ anymore, I don't come here, I don't check out the communities, I don't write... and sadly, I haven't been reading your entries...

If you still want to chat with me.. I always have aim.. cyb3rsk1rt and I'm available through email wpgjudi at gmail dot com.

I'll leave this up for a week, then I'm saying Adios to Live Journal.

It's been a journey...

Subject:cat died
Time:12:56 am
Arielle died today, really tonight, about a half hour before midnight.

Aurora Arielle... my cat for the last ten years... the healthy one.. always been the healthy cat. the only time she wasn't was when I first got her and she was pregnant, I couldn't get her fixed and aborted because she was too small, her heart too fast and she was likely to die from it. but it gave us Spooky and Cordelia (mom and sisters cat respectively) in the family... she cost me over 300$ to get fixed because of the tests and such needed at the time... been a healthy little kitty since.

Until now, now she's dead. It's been fast, her deteriorating health.. end of june/beginning of July she was getting sick, throwing up, and in 2 weeks she's become uber thin... and I took her to emergency vet tonight because I found her laying in the litter box barely able to stand... kidney failure, acute.. fast, there was no way to save her. So, I got to hold her, and kiss her and sing our little song and then set her down and let the vet put a needle in her to put her to sleep, she was gone in an instant.

Rest In Peace Aurora... Arielle.. my baby... my Hallowe'en cat... she beat up dogs... she was snooty when she felt like it.. she had attitude.

Subject:Woo...
Time:06:55 pm
So,

I got my stitches out and have more lovely scars, it's like tracks, but that's okay.. whatever, my supervisor at work when I talked to her today suggested polysporin so I'm going to try that...

I went to physio and had fun with them, my leg ached after and I hobbled a block and a half which hurt but I wanted to send something by post.

So anyway, today I had a teen here cleaning up my yard and such, she did an awesome job, she raked the entire yard, bagged all the garbage and loose stuff and even some doggie poop heh. She cleaned out the shed and organized it as well as dragged away the old part of the neighbours fence which ended up in the corner of my yard and put it in the trash. I paid her $10 an hour, she was here from 1pm to 4:30pm. I'm going to be a reference for her when she applies for regular jobs. I knew her from when she was in the system, she got out recently and went back home and called to see if I'd give her a reference so we made the deal, she do some work and I'll give her a work reference!

Anyway, I talked to my boss at work and we discussed it hardcore and they're gonna have me go in Tuesday and do some training to do the Dispatcher job, it's work from home!! I can do it until I'm ready to go back to the Home Support work. I can't do both jobs (like when I get better), you're either office or home support because of conflicts of interest/privacy/confidential info etc. But at least this way I'm WORKING, even if it's from home it's -work- it means I'm doing -something- aka earning the money coming in. It's not a lot of money but it's alternative work until I get better so I believe the insurance company will pay the difference until I'm healed and ready for regular work again.. although there was talk of if I did like the dispatcher job I could stay on doing that and do office work too part-time. Either way? I'm back to getting to work.

And depending on the hours etc, if I do stay doing this dispatcher stuff from home I can look at getting another casual/part-time job for when I'm not doing dispatch stuff.

I got Physio three times next week monday, wednesday and friday and work is willing to do training for dispatch Tuesday and Thursday! so YAY! I'm excited! I'm going to get better! I'm going to be all HEALED!

Subject:hmm...
Time:06:52 pm
Last night I had a horrible dream where Poncho, my little American Eskimo dog was run over, she got out and I called her back to the yard in the back lane and as she crossed the backlane.. she got squished... it was weird and disturbing because it didn't end there, I picked her up, all flattened except her head and she was still alive and I shook her out to 'fill her out' again and then checked her over and was comforting her when I woke up...

Yeah... ew.

I wonder if it's a fall out of Digger dying? I dunno.

I didn't get my stitches out today, I'm going tomorrow to the doctors office rather than the hospital to have them removed and then right after I cross the hall and go to physio. busy day.

I got a call from the same person, one minute apart asking for my ex-roomie, the first time I was all "sorry he doesn't live here anymore." when he called back almost immediately to ask again... this time I was all "Still doesn't live here, no plans to have him back ever."

Subject:The Dirty Dirty Mess...
Time:09:49 am
SO...

I finally found the CD that went with my phone... I told people there was one... I've been looking for the CD for the web cam (sorry Smarch still no find).. I suspect it's behind my computer desk now, but I can't reach it...

Anyway, I found the phone CD, which means I can now upload the pictures and video from my phone to my PC...

In that end.. may I present to you how my ex-roomie Bryans room looked?...

Understand that this? is his room... now imagine my ENTIRE HOUSE looking like this... and you begin to get a 'taste' of what I came home to... I took these on a Saturday, three days after I got home. I should have taken photos of the house, but by that time I'd picked up all the garbage around the house...

I'm not a heartless bitch... I won't make you look at them!Collapse )

Subject:this works...
Time:01:30 am
Surgery went fine, he got the pins out. Most of it I didn't feel a thing, I was awake for it and he just froze the area and then cut into me to the bone. I did however feel it when the pin was between the two bones and he had to wiggle it to get it out... it was grinding between the bones or something THAT HURT LIKE HELL.

He sutured me up and threw a dressing on and I got to go. Smarch picked me up (B/C she rawks) and took me to the pharmacy and I got some Burger King because I didn't eat beforehand because I was so nervous. I bled a lot, through my sock and started to through my jeans. I was moving around a lot though. Which BTW, freaks Smarch out. haha, she's all "TAKE IT EASY!!" and mother henning me. It was very adorable.

I got a Rx for antiboties, I said no to the painkillers 'cause they don't work... 100$ later, and I picked up some Tylenol anyway, and some dressings too because I was bleeding so much. All of which the Insurance Co will pay for.. but I did easily spend like $250!

Before I left for the hospital I checked on Digger (my Hedgehog) and found she had died.. I was very sad to see that. I dunno, I was in a little shock and I couldn't do anything right then because I had to leave, so I left to the hospital and then later in the evening I had to clean up her enclosure and such (Smarch helped). I felt bad. I dunno, she was like almost 6, and the average is between 4 to 6 years so... right on time I guess. But still.. much as she hated me, she was still part of the family, so I was sad. am sad.

I got all the boxes out of my room and put them in the spare room. Thanks to Smarch the carpets are vacuumed and I did dusting today and general organization. Tomorrow morning the insurance co is coming, I'm going to try to somehow wash the floors in the morning. It rained all day today and the dogs tracked in mud (go figure).

The antibiotics are hard to take, 4 times a day, basically every 6 hours and with food and lots of water and blah. I can almost 'taste' them in the back of my throat sometimes. but maybe it'll help with the swelling and stuff right? I rested a lot today with my foot up because my ankle where the sutures are does hurt and when I move it around too much it really stings.

I got permission to start Physio, I talked to insurance co and I can go anywhere, they recommended a place that is right downtown and easy to get to, so voila, I'm going there. I'll call them tomorrow to set up an appointment, and hopefully soon I'll be back at work!! I so need to be back at work! I hate not having anything to wake up for, something productive to do that isn't cleaning the house. (although I do like my house clean...)

I have surgery today to take out the broken pins... I'm nervous, I'm anxious, I hate the idea of surgery.

I don't like doctors being around me... touching me.. and now I'm wondering what I should wear exactly!... garg.... I'll wear shorts or something... or capris so that they can do the work on my ankle and I probably won't have to get all undressed AGAIN.

I hate this, I hate going in and they're gonna cut me open and blah... turns my stomach.

The insurance co is coming on Thursday morning to look over the house and check up on me and see about how much help I need. but I'm at the tail-end of needing help I think. My friend Sarah has been coming over every few days, about twice a week to help with things like Vacuuming etc. things that involve needing to walk or not use crutches so much.

The house looks SO much better than when I first came home and found it trashed by my now ex-roomie. Of course, there are things to do that will improve it.. such as a carpet cleaner for the disaster the carpet is now in from him. I still need to wash the walls, and the fan in what is now the guest room needs a complete wipe down (something I can only do by standing on a chair.. which, given that I have a bad leg that is still healing from a break, ain't going to happen for a bit).

Dogs and cats are fine, Hedgehog is fine and I have enough groceries to last the month. Overall everything is good on that count.

I miss going to work, I want to be better so I can get up and go to work and bitch about that!

Subject:Smarch Rocks
Time:03:40 pm
Smarch rocks because she's been helping me with everything.. more precisely.. she does a bunch of work for me.. because I can't! today we did laundry... lots and lots and lots of laundry!!

including the couch covers from the couch Bryan left behind because it's disgusting and there was no way I'd even SIT on it without washing it first... so.. couch covers... 5 blankets... bed sheets... pillows.. pillow cases... dishtowels and clothes... and clothing all washed today.

The reason I was washing all my blankets and such is because when I left they were all in my closet which was closed and they were 'put away'... when I got back... I realised the cats had been in the closet and slept in there regularly... door was wide open when we got back and the blankets were out.. there was .. two? I think that I had dirty before and they were in my hamper... but the rest I went through, found dirty and so.. everything needed to be cleaned.

So today Smarch spent 2 hours and a bit helping me wash it all at the laundromat across the street. which meant she had to carry it all there.. and do a lot of back and forth... and she just rocks.

She's gonna help me on friday again with things around the house. which is a big ol' yay!! moving furniture and vacuuming mostly with a sprinkle of sweep and mop floors.

Oh... And now for the crappy news re cast clinic..Collapse )

Subject:Roommate gone!... Not ever looking for a replacement...
Time:10:50 pm
So anyway, my last update was full of optimism... which lasted precisely until Friday morning when I woke up and found the Insurance company hadn't paid me... I spent the day cleaning again as much as I could because hey... needed to clean the house. My day took a decided annoyed turn when I had to ask pointedly for my roommate to please sweep and mop the kitchen floor when he could as my foot(can only really use one) was turning black. I went to take a shower, came out and he did it... with BLEACH... yeah.. but only like a 'fast scrub'... not a real clean. corners, edges etc still dirty...

and then we had an argument which lasted several days and now he's moved out.Collapse )

I spent about an hour or so cutting celery, red and green peppers, cauliflower and brocolie up and bagging it and freezing it for when I want so none of it will go bad this evening. and then I took my HUGE box of chicken and began cutting it up and bagging it for the dogs. I'm waiting for the ground beef to thaw and tomorrow morning I'm going to pick up some potatos across the street and make the dog mix.. I'll have enough food for the dogs and the cats for a good month or so. which is awesome and means I don't have to worry about groceries for a while... I need a bigger freezer though.

Subject:well... not everything is perfect...
Time:02:28 pm
Okay, not everything is perfect, but I'm okay with that...

I got home yesterday, and had a bit of a headache, my leg was bothering more than normal (probably from the 3+ hours in the truck with dogs... all squishy)... so I took a nap in the evening after cleaning up my room and sorting it to rights.. I got up later and fed the dogs and cats and wasn't feeling stellar but I figured it was just from it being a bit of a wonky schedule.. I let the dogs out, watched a movie and went to sleep for the night...

and then I woke up and decided life is seriously unfair...Collapse )
