Last night Lucas had the fabulous idea of marathoning movies, and we decided on all the X-Men movies!! It was a blast; we watched all five of them in a row! We started around eight pm, and were finally done around six thirty am! We didn’t know if we’d make it through the final one, but we sure did! Surprisingly, neither one of us had any dreams about being an X-Man, but I think that may have had to do with the fact that we were exhausted! Perhaps tonight our brains will make up for it. 😉
The vet clinic is going very well; I’m still getting enough hours. I would like to have even more, but for now it’ll work! I should be getting my ‘review’ soon. For the first 90 days we’re on probation, and then we have an evaluation where it’s determined whether we’ll become full-fledged workers or not! I’m not sure why all that is; I mean we’re already working there right? Unless I get a raise, I don’t really see the point, but it’s exciting nonetheless. 😉
I also got the days off I requested to go to Iowa and see our families!! I am super excited about that. We’ll be leaving on Thanksgiving day I think, and will hopefully make it up there to stand in line at Best Buy to get a deal on a TV! Then we’ll spend all weekend visiting family, and leave on Monday to come back home! Randy will take care of the boys (and Calypso!) while we’re gone so that’s good.
I’ve been on the 20mg of Celexa for two weeks now. I think it’s helping, but I can’t quite tell. I mean, for the depression it definitely is, and was with the 10mg as well! But I’m not for sure about the anxiety. It does seem to have lessened, but I don’t really go anywhere to really see if it has. Plus thinking about driving all the way to Iowa freaks me out. I’m not really sure why; I’ve never been afraid of road trips and have always loved driving. I can’t tell if it’s a control thing, since Lucas will be driving and not me, or if it is anxiety-driven. (No pun intended!) I think I might just make another appointment to see what the doctor thinks about everything, since he’s supposed to be the expert! Plus I’ve met my deductible on the insurance, so I don’t have to pay for the visit anyway! Might as well take advantage before the year’s over.
I also made an eye appointment; I had one schedule for Tuesday, but have to work at the time I had made it for like six months ago, so I changed it to December 3rd. I’m still on my dad’s insurance for a couple more years, and he’s changing it next year and it will no longer cover eye exams. This isn’t very good for me, since being a type 1 Diabetic I’m supposed to definitely be getting my eyes checked regularly, but I’m thinking we’ll be able to figure something out. He’s really great at helping me with all things medical!
The last eye appointment I had my eyes had been hemorrhaging, and one was in a moderate state while the other was mild. Not good at all!! At the time I was smoking (so gross, I know!) but my dad bought Lucas and me both e-cigarettes to use instead. (I told you-he looks out for us!) So we’ve been vaping, and hopefully that has helped with my eyes. I suppose I’ll find out in a few weeks!
That’s about all the new news I have for now, I think! I hope everyone’s having a fantastic week so far! I’m working this weekend, so it’ll be a long one for me, plus Twitch streaming on Saturday night! What are you looking forward to this weekend?
