I'm going today to fill out my paperwork and then, if I recall correctly, it takes about a week to get set up in payroll, so...hopefully starting soon.
Tomorrow I have my first in-person class for teaching certification. Not looking forward to getting up at the crack of dawn, but it'll be fine once I get going. It's 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., an hour away. Gonna be a long day! Hopefully it skews more interesting than excruciating.
Yesterday I had my appointment with the specialist. He was awesome and I like and trust him a lot. He seemed very confident that he knew what was wrong, and that it could be managed. I have to go through a series of (rather unpleasant sounding) tests over the next three weeks and then they can diagnose. So, I'm ready to start that process. When I was leaving, he grabbed my shoulder and looked me straight in the eye and said, "Wendy. You WILL drink coffee again." Adorable, right?
Speaking of coffee, I read on the internet (what?) that acid-free tea was ok for me to drink, so I researched that a bit to find...it mostly equates to caffeine-free, which defeats the point, in my opinion. I also read that milk in tea cuts the acid, which I thought was rather nifty. Perhaps that's why people drink it that way to begin with? Makes sense!
I did two rec lists for spn_themes this week. One is artist!Jared recs and the other is J2 handcuff recs. I KNOW, RIGHT? Go check 'em out!
