We got another huge bill from Norton's Hospital about two weeks ago for one of Lee's last two infusions for his low iron levels. I was able to work with Norton's and got part of it put one our payment plan and paid off the rest. It was hard but I made it work.
Then we got another $450 bill for the second infusion therapy from the hospital on Friday. It didn't come until after they'd closed at 4pm. I wasn't able to call them about it until Monday, yesterday. I'd hoped to add it to our payment plan, too.
They told me if they added it, because our total is over $5000, that it'd make our monthly payments almost double what they are now. There's no way that we can afford that so I had to go ahead and pay the newest bill. That ate up pretty much everything we had to live on until the end of the month when Lee's paid again.
What makes it bad, and awful timing, is that Lee's leaving for Bloomington Wednesday morning for his three day conference trip for Statewide, he won't be home until Friday. He'll have some meals provided while he's there but not all, especially his dinners.
I'm going to take stuff to Half Price books and Clothes Mentor to sell today, plus I've got a bunch of stuff posted tonight to eBay, it's why I'm still up instead of sleeping like I should be. I just don't know if what I can make will be fast enough, or pay enough, for what we need.
If they do sell, though, it'll be a huge help. What I was hoping is that you'd help me spread the word about my having stuff up for sale. If you wouldn't mind doing it, here's the link:
If you see anything you'd like, but don't like using eBay, just let me know, we can figure out what postage will be then add it on. I can do checks but would prefer PayPal if possible. My PayPal addy is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don't have a PayPal account I can just invoice you for whatever you want to buy and then you can use either your debit or credit card to pay for it. I've done that for a couple of people and it works great.
I'm going to go try and grab a little sleep, I promise I'll check in later. Thanks, guys, as always, for listening! :)
Traditionally one's consort is chosen for this. But her consort was dead and the Lanteans have an alliance they want to preserve.

Why This Must Be Read: Jack is turned into a dog. This story is just so much fun.
Snippet: “O’Neill will not kill you, Daniel Jackson,” Teal’c said. “He is a dog.” There was that slight deviation in his tone, the one that - accompanied by the subtle twitching of the corners of his mouth - meant he was secretly laughing his ass off. Daniel threw his hands up in the air. “Dogs kill people every single day!”

Guess what didn’t start Monday? *sigh* I was ready. I was excited. I dreamed about my RTI group all night. I planned yesterday. I even wrote it into my sub plans for Thursday and made the copies I needed. And then, no. We were told that it wasn’t starting because the aides haven’t had their training and weren’t ready. And we, the second grade teachers, are frustrated because now that we have the plan, we are ready to start. My group is a group of 5 students who need reviews in vowels, vowel sounds, and CVC words. This is not something that is going away; they need it now. We’re 10 weeks into the school year of second grade, and my group doesn’t have kindergarten skills. They need RTI.
But, no, not this week. Maybe next week.
In good news, we had a really fun assembly today. It was about having a positive impact on your school and not being a bully. The presenters were dynamic and entertaining and the kids loved it. It was noisy and loud and there was lots of music and shouting… what wasn’t there to love?

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

Daniel knows that he met John Sheppard because of maths.
He's not sure how he ended up as something vaguely resembling the only sane person in the storm that is Rodney McKay's wooing attempt.
Featuring Teyla being competitive, Ronon knitting, Jack being an adult, explosions, Teal'c mourning tomatoes, and a missing bionic arm. Though not necessarily in that order.

The story I'm looking for has a genderbent T. Dinozzo. Sheppard is still alive and is still the director.
SGC has given NCIS the mission to find an officer that can act as NCIS on Atlantis - and Vance for some reason got the responsibility, and he's as usual gone for the technological minded-agents.
Now SG1 visits the navy yard for the final cut, and Gibbs is included in the meeting taking T. with him. She gets the job, of course. And then the rest of the story illustrates her training at sgc,
I admit to being scatterbrained - I read this recently (I'm pretty sure it's new....) but i can't for the life of me figure out where!
Maybe it was part of rought trade? But it was a singular story, no chapters....
Maybe EAD? *weeps*.
P.s. I luuve a good genderbending-story, so if you have other ones to recommend - give it! :D

Other than that, didn't do much today. The hubby and I walked to the grocery store in town (about 2.5 miles round trip) because I forgot to buy potatoes for the stew I wanted to make today. The stew turned out really good but I got a reminder that my period is coming up after we got home. Massive cramps out of nowhere. This round's going to be winner. *groan*
Because of that I only got 500 words written on a new Drath short (maybe short?) story. Such is live. I had to go lie down for a while because of the stupid cramps.
I did manage to get the last POD done for this year. That means that I can spend this week uploading everything for preorder. Which is just what I wanted. Last week. But a week late is pretty darn good, I think.
Everything I write from now on will be for 2018 publication. :D
Though I do still have the rest of this year to fix the Muirin series so that's on the docket, too. And if I get that done I'll work on the Tindiere series next.
Goals for tomorrow include writing, work, exercises, making pasta for dinner and, I keep saying this and not doing it, making my sushi leggings. It'd be nice to have them for the writing workshop next week. So that's a deadline. Maybe it'll help me actually get them done to have a hard deadline.
Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!
Picks up where canon left off, boring paperwork, many angsts I guess, but gentle boring ones. No much happens really. It's a john and rodney fic where they don't quite get together cus it went on FOREVER and I never quite got around to that bit, Rodney is still with Jennifer for a bunch of it. Atlantis and her bunch of misfits fight to get back to the Pegasus galaxy is maybe a summary? Rodney is surprisingly not awful at people in a hopefully in character way? john is unsurprisingly terrible at people in a hopefully in character way?
