I've been MIA for a couple days. The sinus infection knocked me on my butt...and into bed.

I was productive this evening though. I went to Walmart, got groceries and picked up the syringes for B12. I might add that it was way too easy to get syringes. You have to sign papers and provide your license to get Sudafed, but all I had to do is tell them why I needed syringes and they were handed over.

Also had dinner with Mom & Dad, went to the bank and deposited money...now I can pay my mortgage!

Tomorrow (Tuesday) I'll go to orientation for Dominos. I'm kinda nervous. Even though I've worked there before new places make me stressed. Oh well, I'll get through it.

Get some rest Ivy! Maybe it's time to watch a good movie and relax!

Add to my TLC's for tomorrow
*call GI and ask what the risk is with taking anti-inflammatory for a week to see if it helps my hand-it's bothering me nonstop now and I can't deal with it. Little things have become big things because of it. It would be far easier if it was my left instead of right hand!

I was surprised about the syringes too, Becky. I remember when I was an active Guide (Girl Scout) leader I wanted a syringe to show "my" girls, so that they'd know never to play with one or pick one up, and nobody would give or sell me one; they're that restricted here.

I'm really sorry about your hand. Did you know that you can get anti-inflammatory gels, that you rub onto the sore parts instead of swallowing? They might help.

:-) GOOD LUCK AT YOUR ORIENTATION TOMORROW!!!!! :-)

Me:

* tradesmen x 2
* sat on floor in between, watched a video, and sorted out old family recipes (ie working out which to keep and which to toss, and transferring them over to my filing system instead of the various rellies' systems. It's a big but mindless job I save for when I'm really tired)
* made bed
* did some dishes
* exercise was helping the trademen, which became pretty ridiculous considering I was in pain. However. At least some of the needed work has been done.

No baking - ran out of energy.

A very tired Ivy, about to have a very early night.

Yeah, it was too good to be true...they gave me 1/2 ml syringes instead of 1 ml syringes. I didn't realize until I opened them (they put them in a bag and staple them to prove you've paid for them)...so I had to give myself 2 shots instead of 1. They don't hurt like the Humira though, so it was ok. I actually couldn't even feel the liquid going in. I guess Humira prepared me for other injections.

Orientation will be easy. It's really just a drug screen and paperwork. I'm just getting nervous since I'm going to a new place...I'll get over that though.

Oh, and I just now called my dentist. The last 2 times I've made an appointment I had to cancel because I was hospitalized, and they have an opening today...so I'm off to the dentist at 10:30 today!

Choc-how long will your friend be staying with you while mom is away?

she'll just be staying a couple of days, hopefully. I'm not 100% sure she'll be coming though.
I think i'm about to become involved in a massive legal wrangle. My dad passed 5 years ago, and he left me a house. Which i couldnt have till i was 30. He left his family in charge. They hate me with a passion though. The house was sold, and they told my solicitor that it sold for 100,000. i just found out it sold for 115000. I'm going to have to ask how my money is doing and hope i get a straight answer. If they can just tell me how much intrest its earned and a total figure i can figure out if they have pinched money off me.

Why am i related to these horrifying people?

When it comes to money...and family...you realize just how horrible people can be. In the US, the person who handles an estate can take 10% "payment" for dealing with things...don't know what the laws are like there, but maybe there's some law like that and that's where the extra money is going?

no such luck for them, they are not allowed to benefit from handling the estate. I'm just going to have to figure out if they have been skimming off the top. It wouldnt surprise me if they had. They paid themselves for their time in sorting probabte out and orgainising dad's funeral. It was only 125 quid so my solicitor said not to bother going after them for it. I just dont get why they have to be so difficult. I mean i know dad was the first one in their family to die and actually leave something worth anything, and yes i know he left it to me.

Gah, i just hope we can get through the next 5 years quickly, then i can get my money back off them, and if any of it has vanished then i'll have to make sure i get it back.

Still, provided i do get the actual money of them, i should be able to buy a decent house and have a very small mortgage. Yay!

*sigh* Poor Choc.

As you probably know, I am dealing with an Estate too, and the solicitor told me that ALL families go into meltdown when it comes to sorting out finances and possessions, so I hope you'll be able to find some comfort in the knowledge that it isn't just you, and there's nothing particularly weird about your family.

HOWEVER - and it's a big however - you would have been underage when your Dad died, and I think this makes what they have done unusually bad, because this was *your* money and *your* future and *your* security, and that needed to be protected, and passionately :-(.

It seems to me that there should be some law, somewhere, to protect you from this sort of nastiness and exploitation, especially as you were underage at the time. I hope there is, and that you can find a strong advocate to fight for you.

Huge hugs. I'm struggling with this stuff in my thirties; I can't imagine how you're doing it ten years younger.

I'm so, so sorry that you have had to contend with the grief and the nastiness :-(.

Ivy.

Aaah...long day. I did get to the dentist, and that went well. My gums did bleed a bit more than normal, but everything looked fine. Dentist thinks the reason why a couple teeth are bothering me is because i grind my teeth when I sleep. I need to wear my mouthguard more often, but I hate the thing.

Orientation was ok also. Pretty boring, but ok. I forgot to take my social security card and car registration, so I have to go to either Mom's work or their house to fax it tomorrow.

I didn't hear back from my GI...though I left her a message pretty early in the day...maybe tomorrow.
