Shopping, Movies..Weekend.


Friday night Kaylee had a birthday party for a classmate at a craft place called Cool Crafts. While she was there and since it was in a big shopping area. I dropped her off and went to BJ's Wholesale for some meat for the week for dinner. Their meat is very good. I got a corned beef and some eye round roasts and then picked up one of their already cooked rotisserie chickens. I also ran into PetSmart to get some things for Molly. I didn't bring her shopping this time like I usually do and wish I did because this time I saw another Cavalier shopping with her mom. She was so pretty. It's cool to see what Molly will look like full grown. Also the trainer that works in that store has 2 cavaliers and I am going to go back and sign Molly up for an obedience class. I'd rather learn from someone who is familier with her breed. Anyways, Molly has so many little toys and the little bucket I had is just overflowing so I got her a cute fold up one that is plenty big for all the toys (see pic on left). Molly loved it after we got all her toys in there. She jumped in and was picking out her favorite ones to play with.
Also my sister Lisa announced she is >> pregnant! << She is not sure of the due date yet as it really wasn't planned and with her moving in their new house and all she has no clue. She goes next Thurday for a sonogram and then we will know. It most likely will be Sept/Oct 2008.

This morning . Alan got up and went into our store to set up a card tournament that he has every Saturday. Not really sure what we are going to do as a family for the rest of the day. Maybe a movie and dinner and then a quiet night at home. It's really too cold to go out and do anything outdoors. I will have to see what movies are playing that we can all go and see.

I also woke up to a birthday gift from my friend Kathleen. She bought me a new siggie from Susie's Graphics. It is the the one I am using below. Thank you so much Kathleen you are so very sweet and such a great friend!

Hugs!

Happy Birthday to Me!


Today is my 38th Birthday. I was pretty busy. I was able to finish up our Federal and State taxes this morning. Then I had to go to renew my registration for my car.....and spent 2 hours at the DMV. I was just sitting there waiting for my number to be called and was falling asleep. I then ran over and got my car washed. It needed it badly. It has been freezing cold. I felt bad for the guys drying the car. I don't know how they do it with no gloves.

David has had mid-terms all week so he only had to go into school for testing a couple of hours each day and then Thursday and Friday he is off. I have to take him to the dermatologist tomorrow. His skin has been so dry/itching and nothing is helping him.

Well I am off. Alan will be home shortly and we are going out to dinner with the kids for my birthday.

Hugs!

Lazy Afternoon



Today I was home with a bad headache that finally just started to ease up a bit. I just sat and relaxed and watched some movies. Alan is busy in our basement straightening up things with Brittany.

My niece Ashley came over last night to spend a couple of evenings because she said she was bored so she wanted to hang out with her cousins.

Not really much to write about. Going to go and make my Meatloaf Parmigiana for dinner now.

Hugs!

Doctor's Follow-up


I'm finally feeling so much better. I had a follow-up at the surgeon's office and he said everything was healing very well. I told him that I still didn't have any taste yet and he said that was from the trauma from the surgery and that it could come back tomorrow, in two weeks, 4 months or even as long as up to a year. He said in super rare instances it doesn't come back at all. Thought he doesn't feel that will be the case for me. He also suggested that some articles have suggested that loss of taste may be due to a deficiency in a vitamin in the body. He suggested that purchase a good quality multivitamin such as Solgar Female multiple. I have been taking them now for 3 days. So maybe they will help and maybe not. I keep trying everyday to eat something that has been tasting bad but still no luck yet. It's driving me nuts.

Alan is home sick now with a bad cold. He didn't go into his second job at UPS for the last two nights. I worry about him because I know how hard he works. I have been trying so hard to get him to go to get a physical. He for some reason hates going to the doctor. We have a $10 copay and that's it everything else is 100% covered.

Tomorrow I plan on freshening up the rugs. I want to steam clean them. I also have some unfinished cleaning to do in my basement. There is just never enough room for everything.
Well I am off to go take the dog out once more and then go and catch up on Grey's Anatomy that I DVR'd earlier.
Have a good day!

Hugs!!

Quick Update



Hiya! I just couldn't sleep so I figured I would write. Molly is laying next to me all curled up and so cute! She is such a sweet little dog. I'm doing better. I am finally up and around a bit more. Though the medication still makes me quite tired and sleeping during the day has caused me to stay up late like now it's 4am. I am still having pain in my right ear on and off but mostly late at night and early in the morning. I think from the pressure from laying down. I sleep as much in a sittle postition as I can to help. So I just sit with ice packs on my face for a little while and then wait for my pain medication to kick in. I have watched so much tv, read magazines even sat and paid all the bills today. So exiciting huh. Well sorry for such a short post.

Well off to try and sleep again!

Hugs!

Happy New Year!!

Day 10 post-op.

I am up after a terrible New Years Eve. I was feeling pretty lousy from my tonsillectomy and the referred ear pain I was havin and ended up falling asleep around 5 p.m. in the evening. Alan came home from work early, went food shopping and made dinner for him and the kids and let me sleep. I finally awoke at 9:30 p.m and was in excruiating pain in both ears and my throat. I had slept though one of my medication doses and boy did I pay for it. I always remember my mom who is a nurse saying that when you miss a dose of pain meds and end up in pain, when you take your pain meds it can take twice as long for them to kick in again. Which is why it is important not to miss a dose. Well of course I missed it and ended up crying in pain for most of the night. I kept begging God to take away the pain it hurt so bad. I sat and did lamaze breathing and tried to focus on something and think of something good but nothing helped. I took all of my medication and even a touch extra. Well finally around 2:30 am things started to ease up and by 3:30 am the pain had totally subsided. Oh my gosh I would not wish this on my worst enemy. I would rather give birth to all three kids again then to go through that again or this whole experience. It is so frustrating. Well it's now 4:07 am and I am finally getting a little sleepy again and I think I will lay down and get some more sleep. I wish I could just be knocked out and not woken up until I was 100% again. I just have to keep thinking positive and know it will get better.

Hope you all had a wonderful and blessed New Year!

Hugs!
