It's all over but the shouting!

EXCELLENT news from my lawyer today! The parents of the babies I had are settling with the perinatal specialist! WOO-HOO! I just have to sign a waiver and release, have it notarized, and fax it to their lawyer. They are understandably concerned that I'll keep hitting them up for money, but I know for a fact this was the only outstanding bill dealing with the pregnancy, so I have no issues signing the waiver.

In other news, my life is so unexciting now that I have nothing much to report. I did apply at the local community college, with an RN major. I also went to the movies TWICE this week. I watched Avatar for the second time, this time in 3-D, which was excellent, and I saw "The Blind Side" yesterday, which totally blew me away. This is one of those rare movies that I think about a lot after seeing, also one of the exceedingly rare ones I plan on purchasing once it comes out on DVD. Good flick, go watch it. Sandra Bullock is outstanding, and the other actors are no slouches, either.

In other, other news, I'm coming to the inescapable conclusion that I need to find an additional job. Working two days a week is not going to pay my bills, and it would be really, really nice to be able to afford having internet service IN MY HOME. Imagine that, what a concept. ;)

So, it's back to checking craigslist obsessively and applying everywhere. Sigh.

Hope y'all are cruising along in the "smooth-sailing" lane.

I would have never bet on you winning. Missed that by a mile.
Congrats.

I know for a fact this was the only outstanding bill dealing with the pregnancy...

I'd ask my lawyer about putting some sort of clause in the waiver about "unknown medical contingencies/bills/whatever" or something to the effect that YOU... personally... will not come back at 'em for money but hospitals, doctors or other specialists MIGHT. One cannot be TOO careful here. But I'm a paranoid SOB from the word go.

Good news, though!! Congrats!

Christina,

What type of work are you looking for?

I'll try to keep an eye out for any openings in the area.

Christina LMT said...

Thanks, Y'all!

Dick, you, a doubter?! LOL.

Bob S., looking for (part-time) work as a massage therapist or front desk/receptionist in a medical setting. I have lots of experience. :) Thanks for offering to help.

Avatar, I heard, had an extremely generic plot. You call it "Avatar", I call it "Pocahantas and The Last Samurai...with SMURFS!". I mean, I'm not saying it's a bad movie (I STILL haven't seen it), I just think it's overrated. Perhaps more overrated then LE GASP Twilight????? TDK was NOT overrated in my opinion; just too many overcrazed people who did not get what that movie was about.

Now I wanna see The Blind Side.

Your life BORING? Pshaw! Like I believe that. ;)

Christina LMT said...

Avatar is VERY cliched. That said, it still kicked ass. Go see The Blind Side, you won't regret it!

Boring, TRUST ME.

Holly said...

I found The Blind Side very uplifting.

Christina LMT said...

Holly, it was certainly that. And the fact that the story is TRUE...that's what got me the most. Of course, I'm sure there was some artistic license taken, but the salient points were all true. Amazing.
