Another weekend gone.....

Another weekend in the wind and gone.  They just go by too damn fast!

Stayed busy most of the weekend - took my mom-in-law for a tattoo yesterday - it's beautiful, a very colorful hummingbird.  I want another one but am not 100% on what I want, so I will wait.  I came up with an idea yesterday but it involved a butterfly, and I'm not keen on butterfly tattoos so much.  This butterfly was very pretty, but I just don't think it's for me.

Brian is still hurting.  I hate seeing him in pain and I can't do anything to make it better. 

We had Chinese food yesterday, and I had major tummy issues last night.  I don't think that it was related to the Chinese food, as the pains started before we ate.  But I woke up today and my face and neck is broken out pretty badly, and when I got out of the shower I had a very itchy rash all over my forearms.  I took a Benadryl to ease the itching, and it helped (and made me pretty sleepy by the time we were done with our errands today).  The only thing I can think that caused this sudden breakout and rash is something I ate yesterday.

The dermatologist I went to in December doesn't seem to think that what I eat will effect breakouts, but I beg to differ after this episode.  I have put nothing new on my skin in the last few days, so there's nothing that could be contact dermatitis.  Oh well, I won't eat Chinese food, or the types of fruit that I ate yesterday (cantaloupe and strawberries) for a while, and perhaps introduce them again in the future after this is cleared up to see if I can narrow this down.

I've been in a strange mood all weekend - plagued by bad and/or weird dreams, and just full of pent up emotions.  I've had a lot of vivid dreams over the last several weeks.  Some I can remember, some I cannot.  And since I'm too stubborn and hard headed to keep a pen and paper by the bed (and even if I did, I most likely would be too stubborn to take the time to wake up enough to write them down), that makes it harder to remember them.  Oh well.....wonder what's causing these dreams???

Well folks, it's getting to be bedtime.  I hope you all had a great weekend, and try to have a good Monday.

February 14

Happy Valentines Day everyone.  I was hoping I'd have a good day today, but the first 2/3 of the day was rough.  Made me wanna go home and go to bed.  I had to deal with an individual via email that just couldn't seem to understand plain English, and we exchanged several emails.  Unfortunately, the situation is still not resolved, and I dread going to work tomorrow to find out what kind of jackassery this person responds with now.  You'd think I was PMSing or something, as enraged as the lunacy made me feel today!

There were some other situations that occurred during work that I won't share, just day-to-day, run of the mill annoyances.    All together it really contributed to a fairly shitty day.

But, my hubby saved the day with a nice dinner out with his mom and Steven.  It was a nice time, and after I vented about work, we all managed to enjoy ourselves.

Now, Steven and I are watching "The Last Exorcism" (boring as HELL so far! although it seems to be picking up speed a little now), and Brian is snoozing on the couch.  Poor thing is in pain and took his meds.  I hope he gets some relief soon.

Well folks, I don't want to be a downer and so damn negative tonight, so I suppose I'll cut this short.  I've vented enough to the family, and just need to relax and chill out for the evening.  Maybe I'll have some Bailey's or an amaretto sour in a bit.

Thank God tomorrow is Friday!!!!!

February 3.......

I can't believe it's already February!  A whole month already gone in 2013!  Where does the time go when you're just having so damn much fun????

Brian had his shoulder surgery 1/25.  He is doing pretty well, got the stitches out Friday, and will be starting PT in about 5 weeks.  Hopefully this got everything fixed that needed to be fixed and he will heal up to 100%.

I am dealing with my first illness of 2013 - that dreaded, f*n cough I get from allergies that turn into sinusitis that turns into bronchitis.  I've been to the doctor twice already - once this past Monday, when I was told it was sinusitis, and again today.  I spent Tuesday and Wednesday mostly in bed, a wee bit of time on the couch - this "sinusitis" kicked my ASS!!!  I was told again today that my lungs were clear (they didn't sound like it Thursday night), to continue doing the albuterol nebulizer treatments, finish out the meds I was given Monday, and I was also given a shot of steroids and rocephin today, and had blood work drawn because she wanted to check my white cell count.

Let's just say I am SICK AND TIRED OF THIS DAMN INFERNAL COUGH!!!!!  Although I will say, the congestion is breaking up and getting a little easier to clear.  Breathing treatments do that.  They make me dizzy sometimes, too, but whatever works.

Gabriel is so jealous! I know I've probably said it before, but damn!  Any time anyone gets attention other than him, he has to come get in between.  At night, while I'm getting ready for bed, he will lay on my side of the bed, on top of the covers.  I have to slide down underneath them (no peeling them back to just get in bed), and he will flop around stiffly, until he is wedged in between me and Brian.  It is the funniest thing!  He will then flip his head back to look up at us, and lay there until we pet him for a while.  Then he moves down by my feet and goes to sleep.

And now it's 1am - I have so many errands to run tomorrow it's not even funny!  Better get my ass in bed now!  Have a great Sunday folks!
