I haven't been updating much. Things around here have been on the overwhelming side. A short recap:
1. Pesach is coming. I have still not ordered cat food. The back bedroom is clean and our bedroom is mostly done. Someone is coming to help me clean for a few hours on Sunday and Tuesday; I hope to get the kitchen turned over Tuesday night. Wednesday we are getting a visit from Grandma E and Grandpa M, so that will be a nice recovery time. And we'll have two good reasons to eat out.
2. I had a root canal on Wednesday. It was, of course, horrible, but it could have been a lot worse, and most important, my face feels better. No trigeminal neuralgia for me, thanks. It looks as though the insurance will end up covering about 75% of it, so it should be more like $500 than $2,000. Much better. In the next month: root canal follow-up visits #2 and 3.
3. My first day back at work is two weeks from today. I am okay about this--the telecommuting takes away about 80% of the stress.
4. And the 800-lb gorilla in the room is the fact that my husband's contract has not yet been renewed for next year, and may not be renewed at all. He's also applied for two other positions. We should hear about all three by erev Pesach. Some days I am calm about this. Some days I am not.
