So, um... I'm alive. Kinda.

Took my week off and most of one of my paychecks and went to Otakon. Except for the 22 hours each way in the car (all of which I drove), it was pretty awesome. Met up with [profile] tehlobster and [ profile] aerodactylus, spent most of my money on gifts for other people, slept way too little, stood in way too many lines, ate terribly, and enjoyed myself immensely. 

I get to go back to work tomorrow. Yippee. My 23rd birthday is in a week.

My new medication is making my lips and nose so chapped that they're cracking, no matter how much aquaphor I apply, and my skin is so sensitive to sunlight that my left arm is burnt from driving back. I had to wear a sweater in the car but it occurred to me too late to save my arm. This had better be freaking worth it.

First of all, thanks to everyone who gave their congrats! We're so happy to have him with us, and I'm so happy that, you know, y'all actually seem to care a little. ;P

So this is how things went down... )

On a completely different note WoT, blood work, regular work, and booze. )

The Good: halfway through finals

The Bad:
three more finals to go

The Ugly:
never heard back from that family

Today at 3:00pm I met the mother and father, and the two little girls that I might babysit this summer. The girls asked me questions (things like do I have any siblings, do I like dogs and horseback riding), and then I sat and talked with the parents about the things they would expect of me, what their girls are like, what problems I might expect, and they asked me how I thought I'd react, what kind of experience I have watching children, etc. etc. One of their daughters has Asperger's Syndrome, and since my own little sister has NLD, I've got a lot of experience dealing with the kind of problems I might encounter with their darling little girl. Both the kids are absolutely precious, and seemed to like me well enough, so add in my personal experience with high-functioning special needs kids, and I think I've got a real good chance.

So all in all, it went well. I'm cautiously confident.

They're making their decision tomorrow. Cross your fingers for me!
