Mondays are my favorite

...because it's my FRIDAY!!!!
I'm not getting too excited though because I'll be dealing with Poppy and his doc appointments. 
I do have some retail therapy planned with some girls, not that I'll be buying anything. 
Sucks being poor!
Anywho, hopefully I can get some much needed rest. 
I feel a sickness coming on. Everyone around here is sick and I'm hoping and praying that I don't get it!!!!
I hope all of you have a great work week. 
See ya next time Blogarinos!!

Sunday Praise and Prayer

This post is looooooong overdue.
I haven't done one in so long. I've been reading my Bible more at work and have been coming across quite a few scriptures that are sticking out to me.

Psalm 29:11
The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.

Psalm 55:22
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you...

Psalm 28:7
You Lord, are my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in You, and I am helped.

Deuteronomy 31:8
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

These are just a few that I've highlighted this weekend. I couldn't just pick one this week!
Why did I pick these you ask?
Well I was really bummed as another cycle has passed and once again, a BIG.FAT.NEGATIVE (BFN). I've been getting really discouraged since we've been trying two years now to get pregnant. I can't believe it's this hard!!!
I know there are big plans for us and in due time it will come, but it needs to hurry up and be my turn!


Carrie, my bestest friend and sister-in-law has gotten her BFP! She had her first ultrasound last week and I got to see the little "Brownie" inside of her. I'm so happy for her! She suffers from PCOS like myself and she's had a hard road. The due date for "Brownie" is September 22nd. September is such a busy month in our families for birthdays!

My sister, Genny, has been accepted to Job Corp here in Alaska. She's been debating what she wants to do regarding school and thinks this is the best option for her right now. It helps with childcare, assistance, and she gets to learn a trade where she can finally make some money and support herself. She's been feeling really down lately because she has a boyfriend that is not supportive of her, my niece, or anything for that matter. 

Some family members are starting to get their act together. I've been praying over them for quite some time and it shows! I'm so happy that things are coming together and we're spending more time with each other. I've missed them!

Things at work are getting easier. They took out some problematic employees. Now we just need to work on the employees that are able to change and get the teamwork back in the group.

My brother got a job! Finally! He went to an interview to work in shipping and receiving at a department store and he was hired on the spot. Thank you Jesus! It's been a long road for him to try and find work. Plus, the hours are perfect. It's third shift, so he doesn't have to worry about transportation.


Some family members aren't doing too well. One had to be rushed to the ER because they were having problems breathing, and another one has a few doctor appointments to find out a few things. I'll be dealing with the doctor appointments next week and the following to try and clear things up, so please pray for my family in need.

Amy over at Our Daily Blessing...Life is having a really hard struggle. She has two sons who are sick and she herself is battling for her health. Go over and show her some support. She really needs it!

I'm praying my brother can continue to stay on the right path. Hopefully this job will help it stay on the straight path.

I need prayers on my continuing journey in my faith. I seem to get distracted so easily lately. I was on the straight and narrow for so long, then life happens. I've been reading my Bible every day. I'm currently reading Job. I guess it's fitting in my life right now. You do well in life and you're a good person, but bad things still happen to you. I need to learn to continue to be a good person when bad things happen.

My sister, Jessie, has been getting out of control. She running the streets, doing drugs, and not respecting anyone. I pray that she sees the error in this and tries to get her life together. I've been waiting for her to hit rock bottom so she has no other choice but to lift herself up.

If you have anything to give praise for, or if you need some prayer, feel free to leave a comment below or email me here.

Have a blessed Sunday Blogarinos!

Forgiven, but not forgotten

I'm sure everyone has heard this once in their life.
Maybe you have said it before.
Maybe someone hurt you and you had an argument and wanted to work it out and said it.

I was talking to a friend earlier and she was telling me how she got into an argument with her husband because he did something wrong.
She decided to work through it and told him,

"I forgive you, but I'll never forget." 

What does that mean?
Maybe you choose to forgive someone who did you wrong, but not forgetting so you won't get hurt again.
The question is, can a person really forgive if they don't forget?
If you never forget, aren't you still harboring some resentment towards the person that did you wrong?
Maybe it's just me, but it seems worse to forgive someone then hold it all in because you keep remembering for future situations.

What happened to forgive and forget?
Is that when true forgiveness sets in?
What are your thoughts?

P.S. Project 365 will be postponed today.

Hospital trips and doctor appointments

This is how my life has been the past two weeks.
Not with myself, but with family.
Hubster's cousin had to go to the ER because he had a huge nasty bruise on his side that appeared after a couple days of coughing really hard while he was on the toilet. Turned out, he had a massive hematoma and has to take it easy for three weeks.

After that, I had to take Poppy to all of his doctor appointments. He has some things going on with him and we're working on getting them fixed.

THEN I got a call from my mother-in-law saying Gramma couldn't breathe. She asked me rush over there because I have a house key and I'm only a few blocks away.
I rush over to check on Gramma while Hubster and mother-in-law called 911. I get there and Gramma was panting. She just couldn't seem to catch her breath. I guess she had fallen earlier in the evening and couldn't seem to settle down from there. The paramedics showed up five minutes after I got there, so I was telling them the situation while they checked her blood pressure and everything else.

They ended up taking her in the back of the ambulance and took her to the hospital where I work.
My mother-in-law and I got there and went straight back so the doctors knew all of the information.
After a few tests and having her on oxygen for a few hours, they treated her for bronchitis and pneumonia. They put her on some heavy duty antibiotics and she has a doctor's appointment today with her family doctor.
It was scary dealing with all of this.
I pray that she recovers quickly.

Bunch of Randomness

In bullet form!!
  • I got my stitches out! It was about time. They were really hurting me. I was working a lot in the ICU on Saturday and asked one of the RNs to take them out for me. One was really excited because I'm such a smart-ass at work and strong, that he wanted to take any opportunity he could get to make me squirm in pain. The last two stitches hurt!
  • My mouth feels incredible now that my gums are starting heal from having my huge wisdom teeth ripped out (pic to come in my Project 365 post). I'm now able to eat crunchy things and I'm loving it!
  • Shit is going to hit the fan AGAIN at work when we have our meeting on Friday. Things are getting out of control and I'm completely fed up with it. I was made a supervisor, yet my boss then turns around and vetoes every decision I make which makes me look like a total douchebag to my crew. They don't take me seriously and can think they can get away with EVERY THING.
  • I'm going to be spending my week fixing a co-worker's laptop. She brought it to work with her and gave me everything she owns so I can somehow make it work again. Let me tell you...it's a hot mess! I don't know how she managed to screw up her computer so bad, but it's probably going to take awhile to fix. I should have it done by Wednesday night and have it back to her before I go to work. 
  • I have Dish Network. I'm not thrilled about it, but they gave me Starz and Encore free of charge for a year! I never subscribe to movie channels because I think they are a waste of money since they play the same movies 100 times a month, but you can't beat free! I've been on a movie recording frenzy since I'm never home. I plan on catching up on what I've recorded on my days off. 
  • Breez-E seems to be doing better. He got all spastic the other night and started whipping the cage over and over and over. He ended up breaking half of his tail off! After cleaning it and stopping the bleeding, he slept for awhile, but is now back and at it again. He's getting more tame. That makes me happy.
  • I'm going to see my nephew later on this afternoon. I wish his mom would let him stay the night with me, but alas, she's being stubborn and will only let me see him long enough for her mom to take the dogs to the vet. I'll take whatever I can get!
  • Hubby is getting steady work now. He works 45+ hours a week and that makes me happy. I'm trying to pay off our only credit card and I want to do it fast!
  • I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! I did! Hubby got me the Eclipse movie that I've been wanting (closet Twilight fan. Team Edward!) and some chocolates with the sweetest cards. He knows I'm not into the mushy stuff and he's okay with it. 
How is your week starting off? Hope it's not TOO horrible!
Until next time Blogarinos =]

Not enough hours in the day!

Now if you'll excuse me, I must go to bed and get up early in the morning for work. 
I promise I'll have a good post later.

Happy Saturday Blogarinos!
Now go over to Cate's and see what everyone else is saying.
Please no spamming other bloggers. It is NOT cool.

Feb 11, 2011


I'm starting to get back into the groove of things since I've been laid up on the couch recovering from my wisdom teeth extraction.
This week's 365 Project is going to be delayed by a day.
I wasn't able to get a post together in time to post today.
I'm currently typing this at 12:00am right before I go to bed so enjoy my randomness in bullets!
  • I go back to work today after having four days off
  • I'm kind of glad. I've been bored sitting here at home.
  • I took my first shower earlier in four days and it felt fantastic!
  • I will be dealing with work drama.
  • My favorite person is coming back from maternity leave today. I can't wait to see her!
  • I made some jello to take to work.
  • I even cut up spaghetti that I made last night to take to work for lunch. 
  • I've been sitting here watching all of the Rocky's with my brother on AMC. I can't get enough of Rocky Balboa.
  • Breez-E lost almost half of his tail from snapping it off after he started whipping the cage the other night. It's horrible. 
And for your viewing pleasure, I don't remember taking this photo after I got out of the dentist. Probably because I was high out of my mind, but you can really see how puffy my mouth was!

Haha! How funny is that?

Happy Friday Blogarinos! What do you have planned this weekend?

Feb 10, 2011

I'm baaaaack!

Well I'm back and I'm feeling great!
The dentist I had did such a wonderful job pulling my wisdom teeth, I'd go back for more!
I didn't have any pain at all!
I got there around 9:30am and they took me back right away.
The dentist came in and numbed me up then went to work. I only felt the pressure of him pulling the teeth.
It was over and done in 15 minutes.
I was completely shocked!
I came home, filled my prescriptions, and slept for six hours.
I only took a total of 3 pain killers and up and running around the next day.
I can't believe I had 3 wisdom teeth pulled.
So now I'm going to catch up on everyone's blogs and do my laundry before I have to go back to work tomorrow.

Happy Thursday Blogarinos!

Short break

I'm going on a short break. 
I'm going to the dentist this morning and getting my wisdom teeth pulled. 
Wish me luck. 
I'm so freaking nervous!
So I probably won't be posting anything for a couple of days while I sleep off the pain with some awesome pain killers. 
See ya all later!

Not looking forward to the dentist.

I'm seeing the dentist on Monday to have my wisdom teeth pulled.
I don't want to deal with the pain.
I don't want to deal with the sounds.
I don't want to deal with the feeling.
I don't want to deal with the taste.

What I can deal with...No more problems when they are gone!

My trip to the ER [Graphic photos]

What my effin' luck.
This has been the week from hell.
I ended up with a severe infected wisdom tooth that has to come out next week
My phone was broken
And I ended up going to the ER last night.

It started out with a pretty good evening.
Aaron got off work and we went to AT&T to get a new phone turned on, he went to PetSmart to get some more things for Breez-E's cage, and we went to the store to get a nice dinner.
When we got home, my brother and I decided to knock out all the dishes really quick while dinner was cooking.
So I started washing while he rinsed and dried.
I got to the cups and had a cup that had some dried up juice in the bottom. I stuck in our long handled sponge brush, but it's angled weird and couldn't get it, so I stuck my hand in the glass with a sponge.
That's when it happened...
The glass broke, slicing open my hand in 2 different areas.
One was really bad.
I saw the blood in the sink, saw the blood in the blood on my shirt (from the spray) and FREAKED out.

This was taken in the ER.

It's weird how I freaked out because I work in a hospital for crying out loud! 
I guess it's different when it happens to you.
I rushed to the ER and they took me back right away and looked at it. 
I had to sit back there for about 15 minutes where I sat and listened to a guy in the next curtain bitching at his mom about some drama. That was fun...

But as I was sitting there, the cut would not stop bleeding!!

It wouldn't stop dripping. I went through so many pieces of gauze. 
Finally a nurse came back and numbed me up and irrigated my cut. That was pretty disgusting. I saw all of my finger fat and wanted to hurl so many times. 
I kept screaming at myself because I see worse EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!!!

Finally the doctor came in and stitched me up. I got my choice of red, blue, or green stitches, so I picked the blue. Wish they had hot pink!!

All stitched up!

They bandaged me up and sent me on my way, telling me to come back in 10 days when I have a break from work, but not before they stuck me with a tetanus shot. 

So I got home, cleaned up the blood in the kitchen, cleaned up the rest of my hand and decided to unwrap the bandage to see the damage. 

It took 2 stitches on the inside and 6 stitches on the outside to close it up. Along with having a gash on the top of my hand that wasn't deep enough to stitch. 
I guess I was long overdue for some stitches since I hadn't had any in my 27 years.
So now I sit with an excruciating toothache and now an excruciating hand. 
Go me!
