Counting Down The Days
Why yes, yes I am ready to get this wisdom tooth cut out! Why do you ask? (It's not really in Jackson, by the way. It's going to be here, but I don't feel like going back and changing it.)
I was able to get the three days off that I wanted. Friday wasn't open, but when I told my supervisor that I was having my wisdom tooth cut out, and that I'd just have to call in sick that day, he said, "Go ahead and put it down." He's good about working with you that way. I'm glad. I could have put in for FMLA, but it would have been a lot more paperwork. It's easier just taking vacation time.
I realized something after I'd scheduled my appointment. That is Labor Day week. I'll only have to go to work one day that week. How's that for planning?
After much deliberation, I've decided to drop my Netflix DVD account. Recently, more and more of the discs I've been receiving have been unplayable. Seems like half of them I end up having to send back and wait for a replacement, so I went ahead and dropped them. I still have the streaming account, though.
In it's place, I've picked up Amazon Prime. They have instant videos, and you can borrow some Kindle books. Plus, it's about a third of the price. I'm going to try it for a while.
In knitting news, I'm still plugging away at the Arwen Wrap. It won't be much longer now.
Oh, and I was texting my sister yesterday, and it's already getting down into the 20s there already. It's still up into the 90s here, but getting down into the 60s at night. It won't be much longer until fall is here!
