The Past Week

It has been one heck of a week here in Salina, KS. Jeremy and I finally finished moving everything from our old apartment to our new apartment. It's not all put away, but it's all here. We still need to buy a couple more storage units for some of our clothes and the rest of our movies, and we're getting a new couch. This will happen after pay day of course.

On Monday I was in excruciating pain from my toothache, which ER doctors and a clinic doctors tell me it is a cavity and a fractured tooth... Not abscess, not an infection. It is the worst pain I have ever felt in my life... Physically or emotionally... The WORST pain. So yes, I did go to the ER on Monday. They shot some numbing medication into my gums and gave me a narcotic. I'm out of that now, but have a prescription waiting for me when I get done with work tomorrow.

Tomorrow at work I get to dress up for Halloween. I am really excited, but have no idea what I want to be. There are a couple of wigs on sale at work that I'd love to get, but I don't know if we have the money for me to get them... Actually, I don't know if we are willing to spend the money we have for me to get them. :-P It's not like they're all that practical. They'd be fun though. I also get to dress up on Friday, which will work out nice because as soon as I'm done with work I'm going to have to dress up the kids and head off to the neighborhood we'll be trick-or-treating in. I'm excited. The people here are So sweet. :-D

It feels like I have worked A LOT this week. It's been more than I'm used to. Also, I have been trained to "run" self checkout, and it has been pretty stressful, which makes it seem like I've been working more. One of the things I like about working more is that I get to know my co-workers a little bit better. I think that's fun. It's not like I really get to know them, but interacting with the same people everyday is somewhat comforting. :-)

Jeremy and I had a movie night/morning last night after we finished moving everything. We were up forever. It was so nice to get to spend some time together though. This week really has been hectic. I get home from work and he leaves. I miss him!

I've missed the kids a bunch too. Yesterday, after work and after Jeremy left, I took the kids to the park. It was a crisp evening, but walking helped take away the chill. Austin walked the whole way and I was so proud. On the way there we stopped at the pool and spa shop and talked to the women who were working. They were sweet... I've almost come to expect it in people I meet here now. It's completely backwards from California.

Anyway, I played on the playground equipment with Austin and Nayeli watched from the stroller. Then I took her down the slide a couple of times and pushed them both on the swings. We walked a new route home and it was absolutely lovely. I wish I would have known about it sooner, when it was warmer, but I'll get to see it next summer, so I can wait. :-) The path goes alongside a river and under a road. *Sigh.* If only I had a walking buddy to chat with. ;-) Austin is great to chat with these days, but he fell asleep holding his sister in the stroller last night. They are the greatest kids! :-)

I suppose I should put away some more things in this great new apartment! I can't wait to have visitors and show off my place. :-D
