First, here's a recent layout I've done for a Sweet Shoppe Designs competition (based on the Olympics)
I think it came out rather well!
In other news, Mermaid is home and half the time has been off with her boyfriend. It's been not-as-quiet, but nice. Even Tall Boy missed her though you wouldn't have known it until she was back from her trip.
My hip still hurts, BUT since I bought a foam roller and have used it to loosen up the muscles around the joint (top of the leg, the butt, and so forth) the pain has gone down a lot. I still get twinges and big ouches if I move just the wrong way, but I noticed today that I was walking almost normally. I can't go above a walk, though. THEN it starts hurting like crazy and the inflammation gets bad from the spurs in the joint.
Far as I know, we've all been accepted into different health insurances. Mermaid's monthly premium was jacked up 100%. I am going to have to talk to her doctor and see if he'll write a letter telling the company that she wasn't diagnosed with that particular thing. At least, that is what he told *me* a way back.
All the Guy has to do to get back onto cheaper, normal (not HIPAA) insurance is to get that blemish on his face checked out by a dermatologist, biopsied, and then cleared.
Oh, and folks, watch the NASA station/news and see if the Curiosity lands safely! If it does, the Guy gets a contract with JPL activated and he gets more work!
And, for your amusement, a page from the series of five pages from when we went to see it in the laboratory last year!
