Pain in the Nose

My nose is seriously sore. It's not swollen, just red and sore. I took some Advil this morning, but it's worn off. I tried to put my drink on it to cool it off a bit, but my glasses get in the way. So I guess I'm just going to have to tough it out until I can get home and ice it properly.

The chest dermal is fine. No new bruising and it's sitting just as happy as it was before. Hopefully it'll be easier to massage in the shower tonight. It'll look really great when the bruising clears up. I can't wait to show Jason and tell him how well Melanie did. I'm recommending her to everyone. I'm trying to figure out the best way to plug them on Yelp. I guess I could edit my review to include my experience.

In other news, my job is secure for now. I was talking to one of my co-workers who keeps in touch with the receptionist and she said the receptionist isn't coming back. A brief history for those who might not know, I was moved from being an assistant to the front desk. The receptionist fell before Halloween and dislocated her shoulder. They had to surgically put it back in. She's also well into her 70's. She was absolutely sure she'd be coming back, so I was concerned when she did come back, I would lose my job. However, it's almost certain she won't be coming back, so I'm safe. This a huge relief. I'm not crazy about this job, but it pays the bills. I may even finally get paid a decent wage as well. It's probably not going to be an amazing salary, but it's definitely better than what I'm getting right now.

And this is relevant because it means I no longer have to stress over how/if I'm going to be able to pay Mark for Lola. I still want to pay as much as I can up front, so we'll see. I'm gonna call him after I get off work so we can chat. So excited!

Yeah, I just learned about dermal anchors in the past year. They're pretty awesome, though.

Yeah, I said I didn't like to profit from someone else's misfortune, but a job is a job.
