Look out! Here's more bullet points coming at you:
*I failed to mention in my last update my time at the DMV. Times, I guess I should say. I went last Thursday, before my tooth cleaning appointment, to try and get my Alaska driver's license. Well, I sat there for almost an hour while the same TWO people hogged all the action. I went back later in the day, while the boys were napping, to try again. After sitting there for almost an hour again, my number was finally called and I was told I would have to take the driver's test. Which, by the way, Josh ASSURED me I would NOT have to do, and that getting my license here would be EASY. So, I took the test and promptly failed. They allow you to get four questions wrong, so once you get your fifth wrong answer, it just turns off (it's computerized). Well, it only took me seven questions to get five wrong. Yeah baby! In my defense though most of the questions I got wrong were Alaska specific. So, I left without a license.
*Picking up where we left off now...Wednesday I dropped Josh off at work in the morning, so my mom and I could take the boys to the zoo. After we got home, and I blogged and what's it, Josh texted to say he had found himself a ride home so I wouldn't have to go get him. An hour later or so, he pulled up to the house in my car! Whoo-hoo. Now I just have to get that license thing taken care of.
*Thursday I got my wisdom teeth pulled. The oral surgeon and his assistant were both very nice and I'm assuming everything went smoothly. Afterwards though, things did not go very smoothly. I spent (and this is gross, so skip to the next bullet if you want) the rest of Thursday (literally from the moment I walked in the door until I fell asleep for the night) throwing up blood. It was awful. It took until Friday afternoon before my stomach felt anything close to normal again, and I could contemplate eating. And by eating I mean swallowing since I'm not allowed to chew anything.
*I'm not allowed to chew anything (that was a repeat statement for those who did skip the rest of the last bullet). I go back tomorrow for a follow-up visit, and was told I'm not allowed to chew until then because my top teeth extend a little past my bottom teeth and they're worried I might get food stuck in my holes if I chew. So, it's been a diet of macaroni and cheese, ice cream (tough, I know), yogurt, pudding, and apple sauce for me.
*They let me keep my teeth. They're pretty gross, and I'll post a picture sometime. I have to take it first. When I was asked if I wanted them I very clearly said no. I still got them somehow.
*Sunday, Josh, my mom, and the boys went for a drive. They found a neat little boardwalk area type thing and played with rocks and sand and cigarette butts. They saw a bald eagle and a moose too. It was a beautiful day and they had a great time. I stayed home and napped.
Now, here's a little bit of backstory. There are squirrels living in our house. We hear them constantly chattering, running, climbing, falling, behind the walls and such. We see them running around outside. We see our insulation falling from the roof. Josh has set out traps and such, but they are ninja squirrels and do fall for them. In fact, a trap had actually caught one, but he somehow managed to get out of it. They've figured out how to open the trap, grab the peanuts, and then go on their merry way. Ninjas. Now, here's my last bullet point and closing picture for the day...
*Last night, Josh got two of the squirrels. And by got them I mean, he got out the BB gun and shot them. There are now two fewer squirrels running around out here. The house has been very quiet so far today. We'll see if/how long it lasts. My hero.
Sorry for the blood.
