This, That and Whathaveyou

It's official, I get to keep him. Today, the crazy Canadian became a bona fide citizen of the U.S. of A. He passed the test and was sworn in this morning. Alas, no more Newfie jokes. (Okay, maybe just a few...)

In other news, I picked up my first pair of progressive lenses. Now I really can't see. I guess they're going to take some getting used to.

My brand spankin' new oven omits a noxious odor during preheating. According to the GE service guy it's not a flaw it's a feature. Something about the energy efficient glow bar and the cold LP Gas. He claims it will go away when the weather warms up. In the mean time I should install a vented hood. This is AFTER me sitting here two weeks ago waiting for him to show up and having to listen to a whiny teen complain about not being able to see his friends ALL DAY. The guy never showed and then lied on the paperwork claiming he HAD been here. Combine that with all my oven ordeals of late and just imagine how much restraint it took not to strangle him or hold him hostage.

I also had to file my EX husbands' taxes for the past two years so that my daughter can file her FAFSA paperwork to get a student loan. Yeah, you better go back and read that sentence again. I prepared my EX's paperwork for free. If I don't deserve a bed in heaven after this I give up trying.

Congrats to you and your wonderful hubby. After all that woodworking he does, I would say he's a keeper. :-)

Can you cook on the forge until the weather warms?

Congrats to current DH and pppbbblththt to EX for not doing his own taxes.

Congrats to your husband! There's a test to be a citizen? I had no idea. Did he stand in a big room and say the Pledge of Allegiance like in the movies? You are indeed a candidate for sainthood for doing your ex's taxes. Maybe you could make some teeny little error on them that would catch the attention of the IRS and inconvenience & terrify him enough to pay someone else to do them?

Progressive lenses...OH great. 3yrs ago, the eye doc said the next time I came in for glasses I would need these kind and it would take awhile to get use to. Its been three years since that visit and I have been prograstinating...I think I will continue!
