So, I’d been using the gold method that davensjournal suggested, while waiting for my doctor’s appointment. I awoke Friday morning to find the stye draining. :) I still kept my appointment with my doctor, but I will be on the phone with HMO Blue tomorrow in regards to moving to the clinic my boys’ Pedi moved to. I love Dr. Ham and Lisa, but the other staff have got to go. Friday I spent an hour in the waiting room because there wasn’t an exam room open, and the bitch doing the patient shuffling forgot all about me… And then had the nerve to lie about it, to both me and the doctor. Adding to it all is the fact that my doctor was quitre (gee, I wonder who I have on the brain?) surpised that I had to wait almost a week to be seen.

Anyway. It’s a stye, it’s draining, and I got a prescription for some goop to get rid of any infection. :P I was instructed to apply warm compresses to encourage it to continue to drain. I think I’ll brew up those corriander seeds, dip a washcloth into that and use that as a compress (allowing some of the brew to drip into the eye) before I try the eye goop.

I wasn’t able to pick up my notebook paper Friday. I picked up 400 sheets on Saturday and started writing today. Got 570 words written. Not much considering how much I was bitching earlier, but I did manage to make a major dent in the plot as a whole (if only in my head).

I uploaded the torrent for the second season of Max Headroom to my account on The Pirate Bay. Within 20 minutes I had 34 leechers. :) Folks have been taking the 27th Lancer audio and running. Bastards! After monitoring the seeds I’m finding it’s best to keep at 5 seeds at a time, so as soon as one reaches it’s goal, I’ll upload another. I think the second season of Duckman will be next. If anyone happens to stumble across torrents for “Doctor, Doctor” let me know!

Still tightening the belt. We’ve gone urban dairy with the purchase of a large box of powdered milk. Considering we’ve been drinking skim, it’s not that bad, but the boys are still pitching a bitch. Ben is insisting that, as a growing teen, he needs real milk. Jarret is just whining about the taste, even though he’s never really had the stuff straight (thus far I’ve been using it in the macaroni and cheese, and homemade bread).

I did pick up a cheap earring holder. It’ll save me money in the long run. I keep losing my earrings and having to buy new pairs. I also bought some yarn to make a runner for my altar. Hopefully it will be done in time for Samhain. The stitch I’m using looks pretty!
