The first step is to admit there is a problem

I have a problem. But I do not look at it as a problem really.
Ha ha that's denial.
The hubby and I were laying in bed snuggling due to his impending trip that he is going to be away for 4 days and we are chatting about the day when I inquire if he has purchased a book for his trip (this IS A MUST for travel) anyways we gaze at each other and he says he is going to just get one at the airport. WHAT!!!
You can not get one there because you are forced to settle so we concur that a trip to Barnes and Noble down the street is the best solution.
I really do we spent almost 2 hours walking around checking books we would love to read, I get all excited like a little kid when I see a book that I already own have sitting on my bookshelf, it almost feels like pride really. Strange I know.
But I also have a little secret, there is this thrift store that the MIL has sniffed out (we both love a good bargain) and it HAS TONES of books and they sell them (if you can even call it that) for $0.42 cents!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE that??
Anyways they get books in daily and I even tried to tell the store employees as I fill my cart with all my new book delights that they are WAY under selling the books.
They say they have too many and want people to buy them. So I do. And I read all of them.
I am a bit of a book snob though, it must be in good condition and if the pages have turned yellow I can not buy it.
Anyways tonight at Barnes and Nobel there were about 120 books would have bought that I have had my eye on but I could not warrant $18 for a book (thinking in my head the amount of books I can get at the thrift store)
So I picked the one that I have looked at the last 3 trips to the book store.

You can order yours here


Its such a sad day.
I had to leave the hubby home in bed all alone to come to work, the little bugger called in sick with his up coming trip so he took a day off for himself.
And quite frankly I am jealous I wish I could have stayed in bed with him all day. And then he is leaving me for 4 days and I am not happy about that either **sigh**
I am such a suck sometimes...

Each day is page of your memories

So it was rather cloudy today and I drove to the car wash as I do every couple of weeks to have it cleaned. When I get there its closed. I curse under my breath because my car is REALLY in need of a car wash, so I run some errands and decided to head out to the MIL house.
On my way I see these kids jumping up and down with car wash signs, I was driving to fast so at the next intersection I turned around.
I slowly rolled up to one of them (trying not to scare the wits out of some kid and for some reason I almost felt "weird" for leaning out the car window to talk to an unknown child)
Anyways the young girl jumps up and down and tells me its just down the street at here church.

I am thinking to myself "Well isn't this your lucky day you driven by 3 car washes that are closed and here's a cheap one (they were taking donations) on your way to the MIL how cool"

So I pull into the church parking lot and I am greeted with cheers of the congregation young and old. I am a little hesistant at first, not because its a church but because I do not attend church I did not want to be "converted/talk down too/told I needed to be saved" so to speak.
I park the car a jump out a few people come to shake my hand and they are SOOO excited as this was all arranged by the children and they wanted the day to be a success.

I kind of shy away and watch in amazement as 13 little kids (aged 5-17) come out of the wood work and start feverishly working away at scrubbing the dirt and grim from my car.
The pastor comes over and shakes my hand and starts to make small talk I inquire as to what they were raising money for and he tells me a story.
He explains that there was a church in Pasadena that had been in the news recently and what happened was the Pastor offered ALL people in the congregation 100$ to invest it how they see fit for 3 months and then after 3 months they would all come together with all money raised and tell their stories about how they invested there money.
One lady took the $100 dollars to local book stores and spoke to the store owners and asked "I have this $100 dollars and I want to buy books for the cancer ward at our local children hospital would you like to match my $100"
She raised $10,000.00 and then bought her books.

So the Pastor had heard the story of this church and after the 3 months was up the church had raised over $300,000.00. And it was never about the money, they wanted them to think outside the box and do something that effected the community.
So and he wanted to challenge his own church to do the same thing (they are way smaller and he explains its not about the money its about thinking (getting the kids to think) outside the box.)
So all these kids that were scrubbing my car had pooled their money to buy car wash supplies to get a return on the money they had invested(they were all given $50).

I warmed my heart to hear this and the people who were waiting for there cars all sat and talked about life and things that they do in there community.
I talked about the Red Cross and how my husband used all his vacation time so we could go to help. He asked if we were still active and I told him about the fires.
He gave me a huge hug and thanked me for all that I did (so strange I know)
And then he asked if I would come to this church and share the story with them.
I agreed.

I donated $100 to the donation bin and everyone cheered (I didn't do it for the cheers and I tried to be sneaky about it but one of the older ladies whipped it out and waved it for all to see)

I believe it all comes back.

The pregnancy test

So the boobs are still hurting and
I don't drink coffee or any kinda caffeine
I have not started eating anything different
The rest of my body feels fine
Its been 5 days now.
So I did what every other women would have done, I went down to the local Target (cause I love that store) I perused a little bit and then ventured over to the home pregnancy test isle.
WOW there were a lot to chose from. And I must say the hubby and I have been together for 8 years and we have never really had ANY scares ever.
And even still if I was it would be WAY to soon to tell my period is 3 weeks away still but I did the test anyways.

It was negative. Well I think the test was "defective" because on the instructions it showed there should be one box with the single line to show the test was working and that one only showed up about 1/4 of the way.
I woke up at 5am to do it because there was NO WAY I wanted to be here alone if it was positive.
And its strange I know I have always known I can not have kids but for some reason I was maybe a little excited and had some hope that it would be positive.
I was disappointed to see I was not.
But that's life if its ment to be it will be.

**on a funny side note the 2 ladies in front of me at the register had the same test in there hands, by the time it got down to me the cashier looks up from scanning the test and then says "It must be the weather"***

Ok so I am not a HUGE fan (per say) but they are free and he's Justin Timberlake and well

So if any of my girls would like to make the flight out the show is August 10th at the house of Blues in Anahiem

Meme Thursday

Cause the boobs still hurt and I do not feel like working right now

I stole this from Virginia Belle and it was fun. Steal it if you so please I added a few to it

1. If you had to set your own work schedule; 8 hours per day; 5 days per week. Which days and hours would you choose? If I had a choice I would not have a work schedule, but seeing how that’s not a option I would work mornings. 6-2 that way I still have most of the day left.

2. What Reality Show would you be on and why?Either the Real World or Big Brother. I am not sure I would do so well on Big Brother because if you are an idiot/crying bitch I may just tell you to your face. Where as the Real World you would just be required to listen to my shit and even if I don't like you and tell you as much you can not vote me off. Ha ha I am not a mean person at all, but when it comes to people being STUPID/ignorant/small minded I would have issues.

3. What is the last book you read? I have actually just finished a couple of books.
My Sisters Keeper is the last one I finished ** highly recommended** and I am currently reading The Sewing Circles of Herat

4. There are many songs that bring us back to a certain memory. What song(s) do you HATE to hear for that very reason? Humm there is really nothing that I would HATE to hear really. I like the way music can bring back memories good and bad some remind me of dancing on bars, some remind me of bartending at the bar, some make me cry, some make me bust a move in my car.

5. If you could go back in time to be any place in world history, what time would you choose and what country/place? I would go back to the 1800's I think. With the corsets and big dresses, when ladies were actually

6. Do you know more than one language? French. I can speak it IF I HAVE TOO but I have lost a lot of it. I recently just used it and I AM REALLY RUSTY and I forget a lot of the phrases. I can understand most of it, its just when it comes to putting together thoughts that I get messed up. (Comes from living next to a French province)

7. What is your favorite blog? Please link it. One only.
Yeah that’s not going to happen. "I could no sooner chose a more beautiful star in the skys"(bonus for what movie its from)

8. What is your favorite web site? Yahoo because of my email ha ha. And I am on blogger ALL THE TIME.

9. Your house is on fire, the people and pets you love are safe and you can grab one other "thing", what are you taking? My woobie only cause it’s the only thing I could really "grab" and I am a picture whore so I would fill the hubbies arms with pictures albums.

10. You have $100 to spend in the next hour. How are you spending it? (Saving it or giving it away not permitted.) Shoes or a trip to the MAC counter.

11. You could live in ANY city in the world, which would it be and why? I would choose somewhere in Europe, or Australia. Why? Because its Europe or Australia

12. If you could choose to work at anything/job in the world and schooling is NOT and issue what would you choose and why? Well if I did not faint at the sight of blood I would probably be a plastic surgeon and donate my services to people/families who can not afford it.

13. What is your favorite color and why? Purple for sure. Because it looks good on most people (even though I don’t thing I even own a whole lot of purple) and I have some GREAT purple eyeshadows. And I have seen some FANTASTIC purple shoes that I have had my eye on!

They are friggin KILLING ME!
Serious they are so swollen they are jumping out of my bra. AND THE HURT LIKE HELL!
And no I am not even close to getting my period
So too much information however if anyone has ANY recommendations of WHAT THE FUCK I would gladly appreciate them.
And this has NEVER happened before. Not even when I get my period.
Everyone at works voted I was pregnant. When I tried to explain this is NOT possible everyone snickered at the idea.
Friggin Hell

Lets talk about the weather

Shall we?
And it does not even get cold at night.
Good old California
I wish it could always be fall. You know that fall (well some of you do I am from the EAST coast) when you wake up and it SMELLS like fall, there is dew on the ground its just cool enough for a sweater but not cold enough yet for a jacket and during the day it’s a balmy 70 degrees.

I think she should go to jail!!

Ok so I have a really strong opinion about this. (hate me if you will)
This mother decided it would be OK to travel on the highway without her 3 children RESTRAINED!!!! Her children were 2, 3 and 6 years old
And due the stupidity of the mother. All 3 are dead. She was driving on the highway and SHE REAR ENDED A PARKED CAR (the car was parked due to the accident they had had about 1 hour earlier)
And because the children were not restrained they all were ejected from there seats THEY WERE ALL SUPPOSED TO BE IN CAR SEATS AND THEY DID NOT EVEN HAVE SEATBELTS ON!!!
And then there car was rear ended by ANOTHER vehicle.
Other than whiplash the mother was fine. All of her children are dead.
Oh and because she as rear ended she's going to try to sue the guy who hit her so she can get the insurance money.
Nice huh?
Per Annes request here is the link to the story, if you look in the archives you will get the rest of the story.

Only in Hollywood

This billboard was actually on the news and all over the radio.
The angry wife took it out on one of the busiest streets in West Hollywood.
Creative huh?
What I think is hilarious is that it was covered for 2 days on the radio and in the news.
As if there are not better things to be talking about.
I like it though.
I think me and Emily would be friends, she's really my kinda girl, and she's got balls.
Funny Huh?
Oh and I did a little research and she has a blog, it has not been there very long and its had over 80,000 hits this month but its worth a giggle.
Read it here

Where there is a will there is a way

So apparently I can not just "will" the pounds I away.
I have been trying hard and its just not happening.
So desperate times call for desperate measures and I may just have to use the dreaded/hated/foul "d" word. Its sucks ass but it has to happen.
YUCKY but with going to the gym 4 days a week and the weight not dropping like it should be something tells me the chocolate cookies and pizza I had today are working against me.
Shit. I liked my cookies for breakfast.
But I plan to shop for a KILLER dress for the anniversary and maybe some sexy lingerie to prance around in on our week vacation so right now unless I want to be wearing a moo moo (and I have yet to see a sexy one lol) I need to step it up.
I want him to remember why he married me and hell if I am going to be hanging out by the pool I would hate to scare away the children.

Things I love about Sal

1. Her spirit, no matter how bad the situation she can always make you laugh.

2. Her babies. They are SO FRIGGIN CUTE!

3. Her loyalty.

4. Her frankness (trust me when I tell you she'll put you in your place if your being an ass, if she knows you or even if she does not.)

5. She knows EVERYTHING about me but still loves me anyways.

6. She never disowned me even though I did make her do 21 shooters and then puke under the bar.

7. The many times she took care of me puking off my ass or making sure I got more drunk than her so she would not puke

8.OOOHIIIII OOIIIII (her noise she makes when she's excited)

9. Her ability to make you feel special.

10. She introduced my hubby and I (nuff said)


12. Her happiness to be my wing man/partner in crime, The only 2 old married ladies to hit the town in Montreal.

13. Just talking to her makes me smile… : )

14. She is SUCH a good mother (5 minutes with her kids and you would know, those kids have more love in there hearts than a million monkeys)

I love you GIRL!

Random thoughts

The ass is better today.
Still feeling a little bloated but I am sure that will pass.

In family crisis update. My uncle is doing well, he's up and walking around so they are sending him home on Sunday which is REALLY good news.

I tell you what though I am pretty friggin excited about our anniversary . I need a break from work. Serious. Its fun and all but I need some time to recharge my batteries and have some fun after finding out the "BIG NEWS"

The hubby will be gone for 4 days in August to Virginia and I can not go because the girl who covers me while I take vacation is on vacation already
So 4 days without the hubby.. what's a girl to do??
Casino/Bingo here I come

I have NO shame

So last night I got home and I was not feeling well. Well technically I was feeling fine it was just my belly that hurt.. Ha ha you all know where I am going with this.
So I went to the gym in hopes that "I could work it out"
It did not work so after my workout I shower and tell the hubby "Here push feel how hard my belly is it REALLY hurts"
He teases me about ALWAYS having some sort of aliment and tells me to take a laxative.
So I read the box "No Cramping" I take 2 for good measure.


Its painful. Shit (literally) I will go home and dispose of the rest of the box of that bullshit, so to speak.
But what I would do for this moment to not feel like I am about to shit myself while sitting at my desk and literally running to the bathroom clenching my ass checks in a waddle that is SO OBVIOUS that all my clear the path because I am about to KILL the toilet.
Oh yeah fun day

Thank you

Thank you all for your well wishes. I am sure he will be ok. The Dr's explained it’s a "normal" procedure and he should be up and around in a day or two.

Family crisis

So my cousin calls, on my cell phone in the middle of the day. So right away I know something is up.
Then she spills, uncle Gordy has an 80% blockage in his heart and has been rushed to surgery in Ottawa (my home town for those checking in) and my mother and her mother (they are sisters for those really swift ones) they have not spoken since my grandpa passed away 1 1/2 ago.
They are both being childish so I called my mom and told her to call her sister because like it or not, big surgery or not they need each other.
In great mother fashion she asks why I know and she has not been called yet. This is the way my mom is, so I explain that Shanna called me to tell me and I am calling her to give her the information and I really think she needs to put WHATEVER aside and go be with her sister.
We all have one family, and as messed up as our is we have ALWAYS been there for everyone and everything.
Life is too short.
So with that I hope my mom gives up whatever grudge she's holding onto and goes to her sister. She needs her to be there for this even if neither of them will admit it
Without family what do we have really? Everything in between is never as good, as never having to explain yourself and being loved for ever bit of craziness that is all encompassing to your own character. You family loves you anyways.

Even if you do shave your head bald with a bic shaver 10 days before grade 8 graduation your family just looks at you and laughs and says "Well your going to look pretty silly while that grows out"
And then we move on..

So if you pray or if you do not please hold him in your thoughts to pull through this I am sure he will however any well wishing is much appreciated

And then there were 2...

To start, there are only 4 people that do my job, we have divided the customers so everyone has the same about and then somehow some wahooo goes and gives 2 people time off at the same time.
So now the work of 4 is now (well for the next week) down to 2.
This should be interesting.
Please stay tuned for bitching and moaning to come.

Its a good day!

1. My BIG boss walked passed me stopped and said "You're losing weight you look great!" and walked away.


3. My calves do not hurt half as bad as they did this morning and I can walk now without the limp.

4. I look forward to giving my notice. Although I do LOVE my job I think its partly because I know there is an end to this madness. You know me I come in like a world wind cause shit, ruffle feathers, get asses fired then I leave. Life is sweet.

5. I get to home and kiss my VERY excited husband and you know what happens when he's all excited…lol

6. I swallowed ANOTHER tongue ring. I swear if I ever get another x-ray they are going to think I am nuts. And I think its funny so I make myself laugh at what a fool I am.

7. I am so excited about a care package that I mailed to my babies (well not my babies Sals babies but mine none the less)

8. I have no problems leaving work and not thinking about it. This is the first time EVER that I have ever in my life been able to let go like that. Its surprises me sometimes, But it also feels wicked!!! (ha ha yes I did use the word wicked)


So exciting.
Today we got GREAT news (no its not a baby and no we did not win the lottery)
Such good news and I am so excited. However I am not going to tell any of you for fear of jinx it. Silly I know but if you have been following ITS HUGE news and we are on to the next step.


Lets not even say how pissed I am about the situation. I never went out and I called then like crazy.
But I am not sure why I am surprised really this has happened before when we were being sent out after hurricane Katrina they actually told us the day before we left.
But thatÂ’s what happens in a disaster but at least she could have done was returned any of my 9 phone messages. And whet pisses me off most is that SHE CALLED ME FIRST to make sure I was ready to go then told me she would call and keep me posted.
Oh well.
Other than this little hiccup I had a good weekend. We went out for family dinner on Saturday with the MIL and BIL and hubby. Then I got to spend some time with the MIL which is nice I do not get to spend as much time with her now that we live so far away from each other.

The most unorganized, organization

I have said it before and here it comes again.
THE AMERICAN RED CROSS FRUSTRATES ME!! Seriously you call to make sure I am ready, I call you and leave 8 messages today to call back because I would be leaving work early to go out and help and its now 9pm and no one has called me back.
But I did find out most family's have been put up in hotels so there is no "make shift" shelter right now.
But I am pissed, as if they would take this long to call.
So now I wait and the longer I wait the more stupid this all gets.
Oh well I guess.

I got to go shopping with the hubby tonight and that was fun, HE NEVER shops with me cause he can not stand how women shop (with having to try everything on and all) he got jeans I did not find anything. I need to lose weight before I shop then its go time

California is on fire... Again...

As most of you know I am a card carrying member of The American Red Cross and the hubby and I are members of The Disaster Action Team which means when there is a disaster we are put on notice
And due to the fires I will be spending my weekend out in the trenches. So far 45 homes have been lost and 55 other buildings, over 100 cars. I will be shipped to the make shift shelters to do what ever is asked of me.
You can see the fires burning at night, there are 2 of them and if they bump into each other we are in REALLY BIG trouble, the fire is headed to an area that had NEVER burned. EVER. While not since they have been recording fires and that has been for a really long time.
What feels weird to me is that the areas that they are evacuating we had done that "PREPARE FOR DISASTER" weekend out in Big bear with a little turn out and now they are facing what we were trying to prepare them for.
Strange how that happens.

I Have been VIOLATED in my own BED!!

I wake up to a tickle on my arm, I brush it off it must be a hair.
Tickle, tickle.
I brush if off and replace the oodles of hair I have, then I feel it again
the ugliest bug I have EVER SEEN CRAWLING ON MY ARM!!!
Serious A BIG ASS BUG IN MY BED!!! ON ME!!!!!
Ok the only one person who can touch me like that …lol
So get rid of said bug I did what every other grown women would do
I doused the house in RAID. Ha ha you laugh but when it comes to me and bugs they just do not stand a chance I by RAID in bulk (ask the hubby he laughs at me while I spray the walls, windows door)
And I am baffled as to how this ANIMAL got into our bed. Before you think we are gross and live in filth I had literally just changed the sheets, blankets, pillow EVERYTHING, and our house is pretty clean (I take NO credit for that)
Where the hell did this Bug come from? And why me?
I tell you what though, its seriously hard to go back to bed (this happened at 5:30am) when something this disturbing happens to you in bed.
So needless to say when I go home tonight the house will be torn apart top to bottom and re-sprayed
Just for good measure

Mens Rules.. This did make me laugh

1. Men ARE not mind readers.

2. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

3. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

4. Shopping is NOT a sport. And we are never going to think of it that way.

5. Crying is blackmail.

6. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

7. Yes and No are perfectly Acceptable answers to almost every question.

8. Come to us with a problem only If you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

9. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

10. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.

11. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

12. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

13. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

14. You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

15. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

16. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

17. ALL men see in only 16 colors. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not! A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

18. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

19. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

20. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

21. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine...really!

22. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball, the shotgun formation, or golf.

23. You have enough clothes.

24. You have too many shoes.

25. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

Oh how I love you

You poor thing.
You have been through a lot.
Really please do not think it has gone unnoticed. You have been a trusted sturdy well adjusted piece of furniture. You never complained once, not even when I took you as my own 14 years ago. You have been moved many times and have seen MANY a drama from my days. You even let me move you to UCKY California. Also because you were so strategically placed beside your good friend "The Mattress" many a night you have been witness to some things.. well lets just not get into that but I am pretty sure, no actually I am POSITIVE you have seen everyone and the moon have sex on my bed.
Eww gross I know, but I am a good friend like that I have always lived alone and my friends have not always so when someone can get laid (no names Harriette, Sara, Sal) who am I to say no?
Ok back to the trusty dresser.
I heard a crack then I heard the hubby curse and it seems you are FINALLY on your last straws. I have loved you like you will never know, you even let me paint you black cause you used to be REALLY ugly (no offense we fixed that) and now you are all black and shinning and I understand that you do no owe anyone anything else.
I will request at this time that you hang on for a few more months. Just till we move out of the country and then I will happily retire you. I may also dedicate a page to you in a scrap book because you did put up quite a fight, and somehow you managed to sneak into A LOT Of pictures I have.
I hope to give you away to someone who will show you lots of love and maybe you will live ANOTHER 14 years.
And if not its been a good run and you have had a GREAT life.
I wonder how I got So attached to you….

Yeah I am a bit crazy

Reasons I hate California

1. Traffic, I mean you have never really known traffic till you have lived here and had to deal with it. If you even THINK you have bad traffic x that by about 100 and that’s how bad our traffic is here.

2. The heat. Its been 100 degrees all week and there are no signs of it letting up.

3. Some of the people. I mean I know we all have lives and are busy and have bigger things to worry about, but will it really KILL you to hold open the door 30 seconds longer?

4. Did I mention traffic?

5. All my friends and family are not here.

6. Its IMPOSSIBLE to buy a house. They start at anything decent 1/2 million.

When I got home today the hubby and I booked our tickets for our anniversary!!
I am so excited, but because we waited so long we could only get tickets in the front row, we could get the couches but the only ones they have left are REALLY far back. So front row center works too.
; )

A good weekend

This is the first weekend in a long time that there has not been something planned. The hubby and I stayed in bed till 11am on Saturday which was a nice change seeing how usually hes up at 6am to clean his car. In the afternoon he asked me if I wanted to go to the movies and we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean.
The place was a zoo, I overheard the manager saying it was the busiest weekend they have had since the theater opened.
The movie was good but it bugs me that there will be another sequel.
Today I went to wal-mart and I am not sure why I thought going on a Sunday was ever a good idea that place was a mess.
But I did what I had to do.
Mission accomplished.

Oh and I just finished THE BEST BOOK, actually the book was a surprise if you are looking for a good summer read. Read My Sisters Keeper.
Its a story about a girl who is conceived to save her sisters life. Her sister was born with a rare form of leukemia and the sister was conceived genetically to be a "perfect" match for her sister.
Its a good book and it was hard to put down. Order it here

Part 2

Ok if you would like to read part 2 I am chicken shit and will not post it so email me and I will send it to you...

Now we move on

And the story

Ok I got scared and removed this post.
It was a good one.
If any wants to read it just send me an email and I will email it to you.

To be continued...

Its like I never left

ha ha
So I am back to work, and with a little extra effort (maybe I have not decided yet) I can be all caught up.
Nice to know if something were ever to really happen to me that the earth will not crash down and I never have to worry about this place.
I do have a juicy story for you all later. And when I say juicy I MEAN juicy.
Lets just say it involvs, itching, bitches and someone gets fired

Its time to go back to work

I hope anyways the doctor is sending me to a dermatologist to make sure all it was is measles (the blood work takes a week) so I have an appointment at 2pm to strut my stuff in all its glory. It is going away though which is good, its not as itchy but its still there so the doctor is worried it may be something else.
I'll keep you posted hopefully I can go back to work tomorrow. (who really wants to go to work but a week at home really kinda bites when its unplanned)
Oh and thanks for the birthday wishes for the hubby I am sure he loves them...

Mind over matter

I find it funny how when you are told that you can not go out and you are required to stay in the house that you find/think of a million errands that you need to run?
Sort of like telling a small child no and they test you to see what your boundaries are?
All this time off work and I am confined to my house.
The Dr office called to say some of the blood work came back (she sent it out stat) and all of my internal organs are operating properly.
Good signs I guess.
I will laugh when this is all over.
"you remember that time I thought I had measles and they made all that fuss and then it was gone and it turned out all to be some sort of rare thing and I ended up fine other than a week of discomfort and an improptue vacation from work?

I'm not worried really the hubby is being really helpful and getting the scratches that I can not reach, I look at it like they sent me home so it can not be THAT bad.

I'll really start to worry if the men in hazmat suits show up at my door that will be cause for some serious panic!
Note to self if door bell rings make sure to have on
clean panties and a little makeup cause I am sure if they show up the camera crews can not be that far behind.

You have to laugh at the situation really. ; )

Tuesday, July 04, 2006


I hope everyone has a SAFE and FUN 4th of July. I will be thinking of you all. Maybe missing home a little bit too. I am going to get drunk (cause really what else can I do with the measles) and watch fireworks from the patio. WEEHOOO HAPPY 4TH of JULY!!

Monday, July 03, 2006

I got back door service twice!!

Ha ha
No not like that get your minds outta the gutters. I finally got ahold of the office that I was supposed to go to they told me to come right away and knock on the back door because they did not want me going through the waiting room with "this thing" not being sure what it was so far.
Then they all come in. 4 of them (thank goodness I wore clean ) they are all wearing masks and gloves looking like something out of a sci-fi movie.
Its then I started to get scared and laugh at the same time, it is only me who can manage to come up with this shit.
All 4 of them poke and prod me take, ooow and awww at all my "symptoms" they my temperature then they all leave except for the doctor who then swabs my throat (gag, gag) and reads back all my symtoms she went through a variety of what it may or may not be.
foot and mouth
Some rocky mountain disease
Small pox
Chicken pox
Anyways the outcome is not good. She "assumes" that its very contagious and thinks it has been for days (can explain why the hubby broke out but now hes fine) she said for "precaution" because she does not "think" its measles because I have been vacinated that it could be VERY similar to measles or the same family of VERY CONTAGIOUS viruses.
We will not know until the bloodwork is back. The powers at be (the CDC) have been notified "just in case" (aparentley its something they do all the time because they are required to) still does not make me feel any better, because its so RARE that an adult would break out like this. And in fact if it is just measles they need to know.
She also thinks it could possibly be a rare child hood disease that I never got and has now shown up? Leave it to me that I am almost 29 and have picked up some child hood disease.
then she told me not to worry in the same breath she called for the nurse to call the blood clinic to tell them I was coming...
I was whisked in the back door and they blood lady was ready with mask and everything, she assured me that measles did not worry her she's seen it all.
I took of my jacket and it was clear she had just lied. How do I know she lied? She GASPED at me.
Its ugly I know. I have gotten used to it but to someone else I can see how it looks BAD.
Ah the medical marvels that I bring to the table. We will know for sure on Wed what it is until then I will carry on like the freak I am.
Oh and I had to call work to let them know if anyone got sick it was all my fault....

Do you think people will like me now??? MMEMWHHHAAAA (me laughing out loud at what a crazy situation this all is)


I shit you not. I have called over 9 phone numbers to try to figure out who my doctor is. When I finally track down the the office number and call it THEY ARE IN PEDIATRICS!! I mean come one people. So since 7am this morning I have been trying to find out what doctor I can do to and they are all idiots with these companies that I am dealing with.
And then I call the same number and they have a different office and different doctor.
I could be dead (okay a bit dramatic) but I could be dead by the time they tell me where I can go to be treated.
I need to move back to Canada, socialize medicine you can see any doctor at any office at any time. AND NO STUPID CO-PAY
This is crap.
Then I get hold of the correct provider and I call them to see if they can see me today. I tell them my symptoms and what I have done because I was hoping it an allergy and then "lead nurse" comes on the phone and says I am going to have to "sneak" into the back because based on what I told them if it is the measles they are VERY contagious and they do not want to make any else sick.

To avoid scratching my face off I MUST BLOG

I still have not have been to the hospital.
4 reasons

1. I am afraid of hospitals. Serious I have spent SO much time in hospitals that when I walk towards one I have anxiety attacks and feel sick {{{drama}}} I know but I am serious, shit I faint (and the husband can contest to this) at the sight of blood and for some reason they always want it...

2. My health insurance (which conveintley kicked in on Saturday what are the chances that I would get MEASLES) they did not work weekends so I do not have my insurance number and there was NO WAY I was going to the hospital to deal with not having my card only to find out from one of my friends at work (ha ha funny how that looks plural lets face it there is only one person at work that I REALLY like and we talk about everything) but she told me the CO-pay is insane if I go to the ER and its best to wait and see whoever my family doctor is.

3. I was hoping it would go away (why I would think this when its getting worse) I have no idea how this idea got into my head. I thought just taking the benadryl it would clear up or at least get better and then I would not NEED to go to the doctor.

4. I know they are going to try to pawn it off saying I am allergic to something which clearly is not the case seeing how if it was allergy related I would not be scratching my face off 4 days after the rash/bumps appeared.

Oh and when I called my manager today to tell him I was not coming in he laughed at me. I offered to come in to show him my condition (because I figured its convient that someone would call in sick the day before a holiday) and he laughed. I offered to email him pictures and he laughed at that too. He just told me to keep him posted then wondered out loud if he had had his own shots.

HOW DOES THIS SHIT FUCKING HAPPEN TO ME (other than for your reading enjoyment? And readers beware this one is full of profanity)

Let me just get this straight, so last night before bed I started to get a little itchy, no big deal I thought it was just dry skin so I scratched a little had a shower and went to bed.

Then I wake up this morning and it looks like I have slept atop a red ant hill and MY WHOLE FUCKING BODY IS FULL OF BIG ASS WELTS/ NARLEY RASH and I am being as fucking serious a a heart attack. (not even exaggerating one fucking bit either)

Ha ha you laugh but I am fucking covered head to toe no fucking joke even the bottoms of my fucking feet, in welts all over my body and I am so itchy I feel as if I am going to scratch my skin off. Everything is itchy, even my fucking eyeballs. So I mention it to the husband and I jump in the shower so he can put some anti itch stuff on me.
I am walking around like a glesining wet bathing beauty this stuff I so fucking slimy and slippery that if I did not have clothes on I would be slipping and sliding every where with my shiny ass.
So I get on line looking for what ever I can about this shit, I come to the conclusion that its probably the chicken pox, measles or same disease throw at me to test me just for shits and giggles.
I go over to the mother in laws and the minute I walk in the door I drop my pants
"Oh my goodness what happened??"
She is now looking at my near naked body in all its glesining glory covered in bumps/rash.
"Holy shit those look like measles"
I am standing there doing the itch dance and trying not to cry!


I am defective just take me out to pasture and shoot my fucking ass.
And if it is the measles all the fuckers I work with are going to have to get shots too!!
Off to the hospital with me.
I'll keep you all posted ( and I mean that in the nicest of ways I mean you are all laughing at me in all my pain and glisining itchy ass glory) HOW THE FUCK DOES THIS SHIT HAPPEN TO ME??)
. I mean serious what the FUCK!!

I edited this cause I did not mean to call you all fuckers.. just frustrated thats it
