I swear, I didn't fall off the face of the earth. Look! I'm updating!

So I went back to the dentist. I have one more appointment on the 30th. Early morning so I can just get it done with. I also took the WildChild in and I am unhappy to report that the child needs braces. Don't get me wrong, I am more than happy to get her teeth fixed. I just want to sob when I read the coverage from our crappy dental insurance and realize that we're going to be footing most of the bill. AND she wants the Invisalign braces. We'll check them out and all, but if the cost is prohibitive she's just going to have to learn to like metal like 99% of the other kids who have braces.

I also went to the eye doctor this morning. I wanted to make sure that my prescription hasn't changed a whole lot. It hasn't changed so much that I NEED to get new lenses, but changed enough that I should. Oh yay, more money that I should spend! They wouldn't give me a prescription for contacts since I haven't worn them in over two years. What is the point of having this insurance if we just end up going out and having to spend our own money anyway?

The bestest news of all...I had a job interview yesterday. I don't really want to jinx anything, but man, I really want this job. It is with a wonderful non-profit agency that does really good work in the community. After working at the school, I really want to work for people that I can respect. I'm hoping to hear something by next week, so please please please keep your fingers crossed for me! Not only could we use the money but I would like to have something to look forward to every day...like a JOB.

For now...I think I am going to go watch the second Matrix movie that we picked up yesterday. I never saw it in the theater and well, the weather is uber-crappy right now and curling up on the couch with the cats sounds like a mighty fine idea.
