My wisdom teeth keep trying to come in. Every time they try, it hurts like crazy for a day, and they manage to poke their way to the surface. Before long, though, they are covered up. One day I will get them removed! Not now, though. It only really bothers me for one day about twice a year. Right now, I don't have dental insurance, and I'm sure that even if I did it wouldn't be cheap. Plus, I've heard too many bad stories about New York dentists... I need to find someone who's had a _good_ experience with a dentist around here.

I finally got things straightened out financially with my boss. The amount I had left in my checking account was just under the amount that I paid in estimated taxes, so I'm really glad I have overdraft protection! Hopefully I won't have to use it- hopefully the first $100 from my checks will clear by Monday- but it's still nice to know it's there.

I'm going to dinner tonight at Zen Palette, a small vegetarian chain (about 3 locations, I think). I've heard many good things about them. The menu's online, and from what I've seen it doesn't look super-expensive. And it should be healthy! I've lost another 3 lbs since my doctors appointment, making for a total of 15 this year. My BMI is finally under 25! Yeah, it's like, 24.7... But still, under 25 is good. Slow and steady wins the race, eh?

Still thinking about switching banks. I don't have a lot of choice, because there's really only 2 near where I live, and only 1 (the one I'm with currently) also has a location near where I work. If I switch, it'll save me $4 a month, but I'd only be able to deposit my checks Saturday from 12-5. (I REALLY don't like depositing them at an ATM. I'm weird like that.) It's paying for convenience, but I'm still contemplating whether it's worth it. Too bad the bank I'd be considering switching to isn't offering any special sign-up-now deals. 2 of my roommates have accounts there; I'll check if they offer any kind of a referral bonus.

My paychecks should clear by Friday- then $1000 to my ING savings account and $1100 to my ING tax account!

Spending for Fri, Sept 16:

$9.58- CVS- Orajel (sp?) for toothache, plus cotton balls, which really didn't help as much as I thought they would.

    I've read that vinegar helps stop the hurt from a toothache. I've tried it a couple of times and it was moderately helpful. dont know if it will work on sore gums???
