Are You Kidding Me?

Good Morning....I was woken up early today thanks to awrong number.  Once I am up it's hard for me to get back to sleep.  So I made a cup of coffee and decided to blog.

Kaylee is home sick with a bad cold and cough...she felt so lousy and put herself to bed last night.  Poor thing.  I will see how she feels and maybe call the doctor just to be safe.  I know Kaylee will have her own opinion since she hates getting the throat culture done.  She would take a shot first!!

David had his appointment yesterday with his gastroenterologist because I had him home on Thursday with bad stomach pain from his crohn's disease.  Yesterday when we were finally able to see the doctor his stomach had calmed down quite a bit.   The doctor felt it was time to redo some of the tests since it has been 10 months since they were done last.  David has to go for a colonoscopy and an endoscopy and a abdominal sonogram sometime on this coming Thursday or next Thursday depending when there is an opening at the hospital.

Since the weather is bad and Kaylee sick, I am working today on our comic book store website - The Comic Book Depot -  there is some updating that needs to be done and the I want to work on some photo projects I have. Here is one of them below I am still working on.  I am also going to upload some pictures from my Aunt's 80th Birthday from last week.  I will post them here when done.

As for the situation I talked about a couple of days ago, with the person(s) I feel have hurt me and that I have taken a step back from.  I am not going to be provoked and waste my time and energy to write a dissertation of what was done.   I am so tired of the family politics.  It is obvious what was done.  Part of it, I even asked if it was a mistake when it happened?  Was told "no' and there you go!  I am going to be 40 years old and I know better not to do what was done.  It was rude and hurtful.  I do not need to be told how to do the right thing when the right things weren't done to me or my family!  Nuff said!

Life is Good!! :o)

Wow what a yuck day out. It is so cold and damp. Had a great workout at the new gym I joined. Exercise can be rather addicting once you get started. I have been feeling so good and it has helped as well with my asthma.

I am leaving soon to take David to the gastro doctor. It seems his stomach has been acting up again. He has been doing really well for a while but the past week he missed two days of school. It may just be a flare up with the chrons disease he has a mild case of it now but I don't want it to get any worse than it already is.


I'll post more about that later when I have more time to write.

Life

I want to start blogging more...it seems I have let that get away from me for awhile. I feel it is therapeutic for me. Guess that is also why this will be a long post.

This past Friday I along with Peter and my Mom had a great opportunity to go and see the new Dr. Oz show that is taped in Manhattan at the NBC building. It was awesome. We all had a great time. The show was a special about. Dr. Oz devoting the entire hour to the plight of those living without basic health insurance and the work of the volunteers who helped at a one-day free clinic. It was a very emotional hour and a baby on the show really touched my heart when she was diagnosed with a VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) a hole in the heart and a large one at that. It just brought so many memories back for me when Kaylee was diagnosed with her VSD and narrowed aorta. It really is amazing how many people don't or can't get the proper medical care for one reason or another. See this show on October 15th. Here in NY it is on Fox at 3 pm. I am sure we can be seen towards the end since Dr. Oz was standing right in front of us and he told us to look good since we were going to be full frontal...gosh I hate to see how I look...lol. :o)

Saturday, we picked up Brian and Peter at the train station and drove to Point Lookout to go to The Fisherman's Catch for my Aunt's 80th birthday. It was a very nice dinner and she was very surprised to see everyone as she thought she was just going out for a small dinner with her daughter and my parents. I have to get those pictures up on my Flickr account to see.
Sunday, My Mom, husband and girls drove into Jackson Heights to pick up my Aunt and drive to Ridgewood to see my cousin John (who is my daughter's Godfather) at his restaurant, Ridgewood Eats. It was also the It was the first time I had gone to his restaurant and it is a really nice place. The food was great! Kaylee wanted to bring my cousin the sign that was made from the American Heart Association that was on the walk path during Heart Walk on October 4th. Here is a picture of them. Unfortunately, I forgot my good camera so this is the best I could do. He will have another one at the next Heart Walk as well for October 25th. Alan did one too for his store for both places as well. Alan and I will be volunteering at the Heart Walk on October 25th as well. This is the first year they are having it in Suffolk County. Not as big as the Nassau County one but I am sure it will grow. We did really well this year with our Heart Walk team. We raised $3,084. I couldn't be happier. The money is what the Heart Association needs right now. It goes towards so many good things to help with education, research and more. It not so much about the walk it self like people think it is. The funds are the big part of what is needed to keep their programs running...etc. Feel free to check out my daughters site. > Kaylee's Heart <
After the restaurant, we went to a small farm by my house to pick pumpkins and pick up some fall goodies. The girls had a really nice time. When we got home the girls painted their pumpkins and I did a little fall decorating.
Today I had a dentist appointment. You know when you go to the dentist so often when everyone knows by your first name when you walk in the door. I am finally finishing up some work that needed to be done. I needed to have a crown replaced and the last of the silver fillings taken out of my mouth and replaced with porcelain which looks amazing! I have one more tooth on the top front that needs to have a porcelain veneer replaced (that was the tooth my sister knocked out with a baseball bat when I was just 5) she was swinging at a batter up and forgot to wait until I was out of the way...lol...
Also, I have to get something off my back once and for all. I have been dealing with some people in my life I feel have crossed the line and when that line was crossed I removed myself from your life. If I have to see them I do... but I have come to realize that it is ok to distance your self from someone who I feel is not being a good person. People who lie to others (which can be proved) and who are rude and betray others just don't belong in my life!! This is supposed to be family?? What does that say??

Now many of you "soft hearts" will start hollering that it doesn’t sound too Christian to turn away from family like I am doing. However, family doesn’t betray; enemies do. I would never in my life do that. The bottom line is that there is absolutely NO excuse for being rude or betraying another person. If you are rude, it’s not because of some circumstance, it’s because you are a rude person. Period.
