MIA

 
Helloooooo - - - - -

I'm still alive.  heh.  
I can't believe I haven't posted in so long.  I feel so guilty. 
As my friend Inigo would say, "Let me 'splain...no, there is too much.  Let me sum up."  

Dec 2015.  
I procrastinated like a pro and had to finish about 30 credit hours of tax class updates in about two weeks.  That included passing the exams with an 80%.  I completed everything on the last day.  
I am NEVER doing that again.  

Jan 2016.  
Started working at H&R only on Sundays.  Was paired with a gal I met the previous year and we hit off famously. 
We have so many nerdy things in common.  It is nice to finally have a friend of such weird interests that lives near me. 
Suffered with a toothache for a couple weeks, found out that I would need at least one root canal.  Urg.  That didn't really phase me, but they are expensive.  But, a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do.  That dentist was very cute.  

Feb 2016.  
Finished up the root canal, we decided I didn't need the second done at this time.  
Still working at H&R, my checks are tiny this year.  I can't do more than the one day because ma is taking more and more of my time.  I hate it. 
Sister had a court date because the neighbor pushed her to the ground while they were working on the surrounding fence.  He's nuts, and the judge sent him for a psyche evaluation.  *snicker*  We don't know the outcome, but he's been very quiet since. 

March 2016.
Got sucked into Facebook.  What a waste of time.
Dentist took impression for cap over root canal (yucky) and did a giant filling over second root-canal-to-come tooth.  
The radio thingy in my phone died and I was told by my Verizon insurance that they don't make that model anymore.  
Got a new phone, which I despised.  
Completed and passed most of the tax update courses for 2017!  WHOOT!!!!!!!  I should get a prize. 

April 2016.  
Got crown on root canal tooth.  That is my number 7 - root canal/cap.  No biggie.
My boss/bro-in-law took a trip to Australia to speak at a meeting.  He is a recognized authority on sham peer review.  
Oh, here is a sample of one of his talks -

He brought back a Harley t-shirt for me.  That was cool. 
On a downside, my doctor told me that I was pre-diabetic.  I have three months to try and control it with food.  If that fails, I would probably need to take some pills. *sad* 

May 2016.
Spent bo-hoo bucks on fixing my truck.  All stuff that needed to be done to pass inspection.  
Went to doctor because of an infected cyst on my side - right where the elastic band of your bra sits.  Owie.  Very painful and annoying.  I sleep on that side, too.  
Lots of antibiotics later, we decide it needs to come out or the infection will return in the future.  I ain't going thru that again. 
Surgery done at the end of the month.  I was pretty scared because any time anesthesia is used, it can be bad.  But, I survived.  
Now the scar tissue annoys me.  I need new bras with a larger elastic band.  
Two coworkers from H&R died, both while in the hospital!  OMG, one was a very good friend.  I was the one that got her into motorcycles and she was a member of WOW.  I still can't believe she's gone and things are going to suck the big one when we go back to work taxes next year.  RIP, Q-Tip.  

June 2016.
Hey!  I lost 6 pounds!  Hope this helps my diabetic condition.  That's with no exercise.  
Hot, hot, hot days, and we are in a drought condition.  But that is fine because there are no mosquitoes.  

July 2016.
My brother and his wife came up from OK.  He helped me out around the house a lot.  
I won $1,000.00 from the church picnic.  Amazing.  I donated $200. back.  
TFCon in Toronto !!!!!!!!!! I actually had people come with me - my nerd friend from H&R and my sis-in-law.  
Such fun.  Hated to come back. 
My bro left last Thurs.  Things are slowly getting back to normal.  

And, that is the poopy-scoopy.  

I'll post some TFCon pics tom'r, as it is already after midnight and I need to get to bed.   
Will also try to go back and do some comments.  
Good night.

I didn't see those for sale. But, it's easy to miss stuff in the crowds.
