Things that suck/Things that don't suck (revisited)

It's been quite a while since I've done one of these lists, so I figured I should provide an update:

Things that suck:
  • The fact that I got a letter from AISD today saying that The Geej did NOT, in fact, get in to the school I put her transfer paperwork in for despite my full and enthusiastic participation in AISDarmageddon. Damnit!!
  • My garage door opener is broken.
  • Lots and lots and lots of medical bills arriving in the mailbox. All at once.
  • Being absolutely unable to find a neutralish paint color I like to repaint The Geej's room, guest room and laundry room. Why is this so hard?
  • Didn't sleep worth a damn last night--tossing, turning, coughing, sweating. Poor BH.
  • My pitiful looking fingernails/toenails that are SCREAMING for a mani/pedi.
  • Attending meetings via conference call.
  • My cat Doug, who I swear is 1/2 rooster, waking us up at 5:30am with his pathetic meows simply because he wants attention.
  • That, once again, I'm going to pretty much miss 100% of SXSW, except of course for all of the hiptards populating the Whole Foods downtown for the next week or so.
Things that DON'T suck:
  • How hot BH looks in his official Texas Parks and Wildlife gear. Meow!
  • Dinner cooking in the slow cooker all day long.
  • I've got a tour planned tomorrow afternoon with the principal of another school that looks good (on paper) and that will hopefully feel right for The Geej. If not, we'll have to implement Plan C, which will be a pretty hefty financial hardship for us.
  • This INSANELY beautiful weather!!
  • All of the trees/flowers/bulbs are starting to bloom, and we should have a GORGEOUS wildflower season due to all the rain we got over the winter.
  • I made it through today without a nap!
  • Regaining the ability to sleep on my side without major neck discomfort.
  • Tony, the friendly neighborhood cat. (I need to get a picture of him so I can post it. He's so damn cool.)
  • The fact that La Turista is SHAVING HER DANG HEAD, live on t.v. next Wednesday morning!!
  • Two weeks from today, BH and I will be at the beach. By ourselves.

For plan C - come visit, and let me see if they can do anything on the tuition. You just never know.... They've really helped us A LOT.
