sick :(

The only news from us as of late is that Tom has been sick. He wasn't feeling well last week (fever of 103+) so we took him to the doctor on Saturday and it turns out that he had an ear infection and strep throat. After that started to clear up on Sunday, he developed some kind of gum virus that turned his tongue green and ate away at the roof of his mouth. He started calling it "The Green Dragon" because it made everything taste disgusting and everything made his mouth sting (even water). At this point we're just considering it to be an effective diet.

The Green Dragon has started to disappear, but of course something else had to go wrong: one of Tom's fillings fell out this afternoon.

The good news is that we're working and I have yet to catch the strep or the Green Dragon (although a couple of our co-workers came down with strep a couple days after Tom did). So right now we're just looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend at home.

provo working report

Well, after three days at work I do not think I will be going back. It became more and more apparent that the company I was working for was running a scam where people paid them upfront to advertise their car, and then the company didn't really do any advertising. So . . . I quit on Wednesday and interviewed for a new job yesterday afternoon. I actually interviewed for a technical writing position but the person who got the position had way more experience than I did, so the woman that interviewed me recommended that I be hired as the owner's personal assistant. I start on Monday. The interesting thing about the job is that Tom and I will now be working for the same company (my sister also works there).

Tom does tech support for the company. He'd probably rather be spending his time a million different ways, but it's not too bad.

Other than that we're not doing much. We got a new stove/oven yesterday because our previous stove only had one functional burner and that burner only worked on high or low. Somehow the previous tenant had caught the stove on fire and fried the wiring.
