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?

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 ❤


My Hair

9 Feb

Is brown. It’s brown again, I hate it. I’m going through a program at the moment where these people help you find a job, they said no odd colors. Apparently pink is an odd color.

I am thankful for the help and I know brown hair will increase the odds of my getting a job so I dyed it back to brown.

But I hate it.

My name is Karlene and I am a craftoholic, with ADD!

I can’t help it.. I see something neat on Pintrest, Etsy or on a fellow bloggers page and I think OMG that’s awesome I want to TRY that!

The problem is, I don’t finish ALL of them. I have half finished crochet, felt, decoupage, painting and all kinds more stuff.  I found I pink fairy castle box and I want to make one SOOOOO bad! I found an earring hanger made from perforated sheet metal and I want to make that too!! I

I need to wrap up some stuff THEN start new stuff.
