Thank you

31 Mar

Thank you all SO much for your well wishes for my mom:) She’s doing so much better now. No cigarettes for 2 weeks!! I’m so proud of her.

I started volunteering at Goodwill. I’m the receptionist there about 20 hours a week. It’s fun there and everyone is so nice. My brain is not used to being so busy though so I’ve been very tired when I get home. I have been reading your blogs but I’ve been too pooped to comment.

Hey all :)

18 Mar

So I’ve been reading blogs but not commenting or blogging myself because I’ve been super busy.

My mom has been in the hospital since Sunday. She went to the ER on Sunday night because she was having a hard time breathing. We got a call at 8am the next day telling us she had been put on a ventilator. We went to Vallejo Kaiser and saw her.

She was moved to San Francisco then back to Vallejo. But now THANKFULLY she is HOME.

50 years of smoking and years of stress and high blood pressure have taken it’s toll on Mommy. She has quit smoking and is doing great.

 

It’s A Small World

7 Mar

I wanted to thank you all for the well wishes. I feel a little better but the pain is still there so I have to go in for a sonogram and some xrays.

I ran into an old boyfriend the other day. It was very surreal. I was just thinking of him. I was thinking I wonder what he’s up to and if he is on facebook or something and I thought I’ll have to look and see when I get home. I was sitting with my sister in law at an office and I’ve seen the security guards before but you know how you don’t always pay attention when you’re in a hurry ? There was a lady with some kids there and the kids were sitting in the walk way and the security guard came over and told them they’d have to move. He walked away and had to come back to tell them to move again and suddenly his voice clicked in my head.

I looked at his name tag and almost passed out. I grabbed Denise’s arm and said his name. He walked over to us and it WAS him. So weird. We talked for a while and I got his number and email address.

What A Pain In The ….

1 Mar

So I wasn’t feeling all that great on Sunday but I figured it was a little bug and I’d probably be feeling tip top in time for Monday, that’s how it works isn’t it?

Pain got WORSE Monday though. I got up and went to my job search class anyway. By Monday night the pain was so bad I couldn’t really stand or lay down. So by the time I went to bed it hurt bad enough that I couldn’t sleep very well.

I got up Tuesday morning and the pain was just about as bad. Went to job search again and tried to make an appointment with my doctor but she wasn’t available till the beginning of April! So I took some Advil and went to bed.

I got up this morning and the pain was still bad. I called the clinic number and made an appointment for 2pm. I got to the clinic on time but waited till about 3:15pm to be seen.  I guess I should mention that the pain is right under my boob by my ribs on my left side. She poked my side a bit, had me pee in a cup and they took blood.  Plus I have to go back to the clinic for xrays and an ultrasound. They’re doing tests to see if I’m pregnant or have STD’s which would be some kinda miracle HA.

On the upside we (My SIL, and daughter) went to The Clay Oven for lunch. I love Indian food but there’s so little of it here in Fairfield. It was amazing and very reasonably priced. Just $42 and that’s with tip!

What’s your fav food?

Oh Etsy

16 Feb

WARNING picture heavy post lol

Am I the only one who spends hours and hours Etsy?  I can’t believe how much time it SUCKS out of my day!  I started looking for shamrock brooches because I don’t have one yet and I would love to have a brooch for every holiday. Eventually though my mind wanders and I almost always end up looking at pink things! I was talking to my friend Brent on Skype and he’s SUCH an enabler! He finds stuff I might like and links them to me!

Here are some lovely things I found.

Clever use of buttons!

Look at the tiny flowers with pearl centers on this one.

I love the girls face on this one.

I think this one might be my favorite I love the flowers and the color!

Pretty touches on this one.

Looks like an old piece of china made into a brooch.

Last but not least is a Lego heart brooch I’m DEF making this one!

What do you guys look for on Etsy?

Happy Valentines Day!

15 Feb

Happy Heart Day! I love V Day. It’s about love what’s not to love about love?!

I got a few presents from an awesome guy

The white cube is a color changing light up Hello Kitty clock, next to that is a box of pink shimmery gaming dice, next is Fairytale the unicorn and they’re all sitting on top of a box of pink Legos.  I also got this cool fiber optic thing for my hair but I forgot to put it in the picture.

Hope you guys all had a great day <3

Whitney Houston

12 Feb

I was sad to hear about Whitney Houston dying. She was so talented. You have to be very careful with fame I think.
