Everything's going crazy!!!

Boy, the last few days have been crazy!!! We discovered that the ex-roomie owes us for accumulated electricity usage, but she is refusing her responsibility, on the grounds that I didn’t tell her about it before she moved out. I just wanted to say Duh! I mean, you can’t find out how much a person owes until you close the period, and since she never gave me an actual date for her move, I couldn’t close it until she had. And then she didn’t give me a date in the future, she sent me an email on the day of. So this whole mess has gotten worse because she’s just been a pain about it. $125 is no small amount for us to have to pay, especially right now when our rent went up $300. I’m debating taking her to small claims court. I know I have all the paperwork required to back up my claim, I just don’t know if I even want to bother. But then we’re letting her of scott-free and burdening ourselves even more. Jeff just wants to be done with her, but I want her to take responsibility for her actions. Still thinking…

And last week, on our last day off, we went to the driving range with my sister and BIL, cheap entertainment= a $6 bucket of balls to whack at! LOL, we had a great time, but Jeff tripped on the stairs and caught himself on his hand. His 3 fingers were on top of the stair and his pinkie apparently jammed into the side of it. It got really swollen, and painful, so on Friday he went to urgent care where they took an X-ray (which almost completely cut off his pinkie) and told him it was broken in the joint. But because it was Friday, they kind of splinted it and told him to call an orthopedic specialist on Monday to see if they need to do surgery on it.

Scared the crap out of me because he has clinical and school for the next 3 months, then he’ll be done with school, and the end was in sight! If his finger was broken, he wouldn’t be able to complete his clinical. Anyways, yesterday evening, his hand was going numb and he was having shooting pains up his arm, so we decided to go to a different hospital’s emergency room. Where they took a new X-ray so they could see what was actually going on, and discovered that his finger was just very badly sprained in the joint, not broken. So they put a half cast on it to keep him from reinjuring himself, and said to give it a week or so. I really feel like this is the right track now, and we probably saved ourselves money by going to the ER instead of him going to see a specialist today. Cross your fingers that it heals just fine.

Eating-wise over the weekend wasn’t great but wasn’t too horrible either. I have a feeling I’m going to be close to my weight last week, which is good, but not as good as I’d like. But what can I really expect when the only exercise I’ve been doing is swimming in the pool to cool off, and not tracking everything. For some reason, I’m really struggling with getting motivated to change and tighten things up a little more. I have mostly fallen off the wagon, “mostly” because I’m still paying a lot of attention to what I’m eating, and haven’t gained anything, but the rest I’m just slacking. I was doing so well 8 weeks ago, motivated, on top of it all, even getting cardio and strength training in. Now, I haven’t done that in almost 2 weeks. I need to figure out what I can do to get myself back on track again. Once I do that, I’ll be sitting pretty.


  1. Sorry about his hand.. It is hard to get motivated sometimes, but hitting balls was good exercise. You can get back on track. Do what I do go and read some blogs. Have a nice day.

  2. I'm sorry things are sucky for you this month w/the roomie drama and the hospital visits! Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and it'll eventually click back into place!

  3. When you figure out how to do that tell me too. I too hope his finger is ok. Is it worth losing a friend over getting the money or is that part already ruined? Good luck with
