Three weeks ago today...

...this was me.

BUT NOW, I'm all healed. Bandages are off, stitches have disolved and I'm pretty much pain free.


Still no heavy lifting though.
I made the mistake of doing way too much today and now I'm paying the price. PAIN.
Oh well that's what the good drugs are for.

I just cleaned my scrap area, so now I can actually sit down and work. I MIGHT EVEN FINISH CHRISELDA'S CJ! What a concept. Then I have to get started on my frog's book. Then then then...50 million things to do. I still need to make thank you cards for my surgeon and the hospital staff.

My Hurricanes won! They did it! They did it!

And my Cam Ward won MVP! Too bad he's not saving himself for me. During his press conference he announced his wedding date as July 22. How rude. HA I crack myself up.

I am so excited for NORTH CAROLINA, the Hurricanes and TERESE! HAHAHA And Terese, I meant that I'm excited to torture you, with more talk of the Canes! :)

Nothing else exciting going on. Worked 12 hours today. Was in major pain by the time I left. I had to unbutton my jeans just to drive. Fun stuff. Had some yummy lasanga leftovers and peas for dinner. YES peas!

Now I'm going to eat ice cream. Just in case you's CHOCOLATE CHIP.

Here's some pictures of my men:

Cam making a save! :)

Awe...he's cute even with the playoff beard.

Captain Rod Brindamour...can you tell he was excited? HA that's the understatement of the year. I love when they first hoist the CUP over their head.

Love the next shot too...although YICK can you imagine the germs? Bleh!

Happy Father's Day


Just called my dad to wish him a happy one. Did you?

Days like this make me wish I was closer to my dad. At least I had a decent conversation with him. The last few times I've talked to him have been nice. :)

Well this was a busy weekend. Next weekend we are going out of town and celebrating Alan's birthday. I can't wait!

I have 500 pictures to upload...including the ones from my hospital visit. I'll have to post some here too.

Until next time...

Woo hoo! My fave show is back on! So glad Alan got me hooked on this last year. I love Chef Ramsey. He is bloody amazing. The things he says blow me away man. I can't believe he goes off like that. Looks like a crap bunch of contestants though. I'd send the whole lot home. Especially the ones sweating in the food. GROSS!

In case you watch the show and still haven't checked your TIVO for the evening, I won't ruin anything for you, but GO WATCH! Now. It was a 2-hour special. COME ON ALREADY!

On another TV note, did ya'll catch Windfall? My mom called me just as it was starting so I turned it on. Didn't get my attention till the end, but I rather like it. I think I'll give it another shot on Thursday. Man this being laid up in bed is really bad, I'm getting addicted to television.

Oh and speaking of TV, the new season of Simple Life is keeping me entertained as well. I about died on the first episode when they pulled up to West Hills Hospital! That's where I was Wednesday, RIGHT THERE, having surgery. Too funny. Small world. And Chapter 8, the club they go to in the 2nd episode, that place is off the hook. My deputies arrest people there all the time. Oh and it's not in Hollywood, it's in the city of Agoura, CA.

Ok I'm off to bed, I need my beauty sleep considering that Alan is back in town tomorrow! ;)

One week...

since he's been gone. Every day he calls when he opens my cards...and to see how I'm feeling.

Tomorrow I crack myself up...

This is one of the cheesiest cards...the rest were rather intricate, but I don't feel like sharing those with you all.

I'm glad Alan will be home. I need someone to help sweep the floors. HA He'll love that!

On another note, I actually was able to get some emails answered today. EVEN SOME SCRAPPIN! I sat at the computer without major pain for long periods of time. I'm HEALING!

Off to watch hockey.

*Sorry Chriselda, this whole post will probably make you sick*

Happy Birthday Babe!
I know you're up in Portland right now, but you have to be enjoying some part of the mini-vacation. You keep telling me how much you like the place and the hotel! Consider that part of your birthday present, the other half will be ME when you get home.

I hope you have a great birthday dinner tonight!

I miss you birthday boy!

I have a epigastric hernia that needs repairing!
I moved a lot of crap this weekend, lifted boxes and furniture I never should have and totally irritated my hernia. I've had it since I was like 5 years old. It's bugged me on and off for years, but I've always just put up with it. Well the last couple of days I've really been whining about it, so Alan said THAT'S IT, you're going to the emergency room! I said NO WAY, he said FINE you're taking tomorrow off and going to the doctor.
So I find an internist who can see me today, and schedule an appointment. In the meantime, I also get a referral for a surgeon who specializes in hernia repair. I scheduled an appointment with him for tomorrow.

I sat around all day waiting for my appointment, spent 5 minutes with the guy while he poked and prodded me. I about died...seriously. I was almost in tears it hurt so bad. Ok, so in case you don't know, I'm pretty dramatic. It's hard to outdo my drama-queen-ness. WELL, this doctor FLIPPED OUT. He said OMG you have to go to the hospital RIGHT AWAY! You need to see a surgeon. I'm scheduling you. I said well I have an appointment for a consultation tomorrow isn't that good enough.
Doctor says NO, you must go NOW. RIGHT NOW. TONIGHT! GO!
I start to freak out at this point...
Doctor gets on the phone with the surgeon to make sure I'll be seen right away! I am then hardly breathing...go downstairs to my mom's office (she works in the same medical building) and I am going nuts crying and flipping out. The office manager is so BLAH, could care less, I call my mom and am hysterical. Then my mom is flipping...

WELL to make a long story short, the surgeon saw me and says I'll live...until TOMORROW. Soooo that's what I'll be doing tomorrow @ 10:30!

I cannot believe it.
And Alan is leaving town too...for a week. And his birthday is Sunday. This is just nuts. Poor thing DOES NOT want to even go on this business trip in the first place, and now he really doesn't. He's so sweet. I love him dearly. I just feel bad for the guy!

Good thing I'm not having surgery tonight.

Oh and for all of you scrapbookers, don't worry, I'll be scrapbooking this event!

Wish me luck
