  • The crud

    On Saturday Matt and I went to the NC State game.  A few of our friends had their small children with them so of course Matt and I have fun playing with them.  Matt was lucky enough to get to hold Taylor who is almost 2 for most of the 1st quarter while I played with Thomas who is 4.

    I love little kids and I love playing with them until, until their little kid germs get on you.  Honestly I have no idea where this stupid head cold came from (it’s been going around) but I am NOT enjoying it at all!  It started maybe Sunday night and I woke up with a sore throat on Monday.  Tuesday was pretty much the same but I could fee the congestion in my head so I stopped by the drug store for some Sudafed on my way home.  I knew I wouldn’t sleep great if I took one so late but I knew I needed to get something in my system.  Needless to say I did not sleep well that night.

    Wednesday morning I took more Sudafed and decided I would take Nyquil and Afrin before bed.  Ahhh.  I slept much better last night but as soon as I got up my head stopped right back up.  Boo!  Thankfully I don’t really feel that bad aside from not being able to breathe.  So that’s good.  I just hope I can kick this crap to the curb and soon.  And I hope Matt doesn’t get it.  He’s already said he’s going to be a big baby if he gets it.


  • Oh carpal tunnel

    You are so not my friend.  I’m not sure what has happened over the past few days but OMG my wrist hurts.  I went to Target on Monday and bought a brace but it’s pretty cheap and I’m not sure it really does much.  I can’t seem to get it quite as tight as I feel I need it.

    I hadn’t been doing anything different really so I’m not sure why exactly it’s just started hurting.  I always do a ton of typing at work so it’s not like that is different.

    And speaking of wrists, I might have a little something planned for my wrist while we are in NYC next week.  😉  HOLY COW, we will be in NYC NEXT week!  In 11 days Matt and I will be have been married ONE WHOLE YEAR!  AHHHHHH!  😀  I might be a tad bit excited.


  • Shingles, not on the roof

    That’s right apparently I have shingles.  WTF?!?!?!  Friday night Matt and I were sitting around watching a movie when I noticed a little patch of bumps on my back/side.  I freaked out and made him put itch cream on it immediately.  Saturday morning it didn’t look much better so we continued to put stuff on it.  And by Sunday there was still no change.  I texted my cousin who’s a nurse to see if she could tell me what it was.  After a few questions she told me it looked pretty bad and I should go to the doctor.

    This morning on my way to work I called to see if the doctor could see me.  The girl said they had an appointment in 15 minutes if I could make it.  I told her I was on my way.  I start talking to the doctor and I mention that one of my friends said I might have shingles, he goes, “I think that’s what it is.”  AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!  Apparently it is the same virus as chicken pox and once you have chicken pox it stays in your system.  I guess stress and stuff can cause it to come back.  GRR!  Oh and it’s supposed to be very painful.  Great.

    I went to pick up my meds and headed to work since the doc said I wasn’t contagious.  I guess sitting in my chair at my desk made my back really start to hurt and of course I began to freak out.  After a little “episode” in the breakroom (ie I almost passed out) I decided to go home.  I feel like it was probably more in my head but the meds say they can make you a little dizzy.  I’ve been sleeping most of the day and now I’m just waiting for Matt to get home and take care of me.  🙂  I’m also debating getting the pain meds filled that the doc gave me.  Sitting seems to bother my back more then anything.  Even just sitting on the couch.

    I hope the meds start to work soon because I am not diggin’ the shingles.  I’m still young, I should NOT have this.  🙁

  • I’m falling apart! It’s official!

    I’ve been married less then 2 months and I am already falling apart.  More so now then before.   I blame Matt.  🙂  When we first got back he had some random cough that caused him to sleep on the couch the first week of marriage.  Poor thing would wake up in the middle of the night having coughing fits and would go downstairs so I could sleep.  A few days later I got said cough.  Thankfully mine didn’t last as long as his did and I didn’t sleep on the couch.  I know I’m a bad wife. hehe.

    Then a few weeks ago I had some random throat thing.  Who knows what the hell that mess was.  It was awful and I wanted to pull my tonsils out.  It probably wouldn’t have hurt that bad.  A doctor visit and a week of antibiotics later I finally started feel better.  Granted my throat started to feel better a day or so after I started the meds but it was still funky, even after I finished the antibiotics.

    Now I have a bladder infection.  If you’ve never had one let me just say you are lucky.  They are the devil.  Seriously they suck!  It started on Saturday but I pushed through.  Sunday I got some over the counter meds but those didn’t do much and by this morning I was done.  My regular doc was booked till tomorrow afternoon and I knew I couldn’t make it that long.  I called my old place and they were able to get me in first thing this morning.  Thank goodness!  PLUS, I was in and out by 9am.  This is no small feat considering I stopped going there because it would normally take me and hour plus for the most basic things.  I personally blame the office manager.   But whatever, I was able to see a doc, get meds and get the hell out of there in 30 mins.  I will consider the whole appointment a success.

    The doc told me to wait on the test results before filling my antibiotics but I didn’t bother to wait.  I knew what was wrong so I stopped by CVS before coming in to work.  Now I am finally starting to feel better.  It’s amazing what one little pill can do.  It might not hurt that I’ve also now taken 2 Excedrin.  My head is killing me.  Ughh!  I hate headaches.  They suck too!

    Wow so that was way more then I expected to write about falling apart.  I guess this is what happens when I blog at work.  I seem to get lost in my head and the words just flow.  🙂  And now it’s just about that time to pack it up and head home!

    Till tomorrow!


  • Cinnamon bun ice cream and laundry!

    I went to the doc this morning and she ruled out strep so that is good.  But I wish she’d had more to offer for my poor scratchy throat besides, chew gum or candy or anything that makes you salivate more.  I mean I get the idea.  The more saliva I have the more it thins down the mucus but that really doesn’t soothe my throat.  I guess I need to gargle with salt water.  That is supposed to help.  I also stopped by the Teet (our grocery store) on my way home and picked up some soup and ice cream.  Yummy yummy ice cream.  Apparently Ben and Jerry now make Cinnamon bun ice cream, mmmmmm.

    I’m still not feeling super hot so I decided to just stay home.  I even managed to do a little work.  I’ve had my email up all day, I disconnected a few numbers, emailed a customer and placed an order.  I think that is pretty productive since I was at home sitting on the couch.  I might have squeezed in a movie or two as well. 😉  And let’s not forget the 4 loads of laundry that are almost done and the dishes currently in the dishwasher.

    Now I’m just sitting here waiting for the hubs to get home.  A nice big hug would be good right about now.


  • Working on the album

    I will apologize in advance for the craptastic post today.  I’m not feeling so hot.  I think I’m getting strep throat.  BOOO!

    Anyway I’ve been working on mine and Matt’s new wedding album.  Honestly I’m a little surprised but I ended up using Shutterfly.  They’ve added a lot of features to their photo books and they have GREAT prices.  Add a $20.00 gift card we have and literally it’s like free.  Haha!  Not really but I think it should only cost around $20.00.

    I’ve spend the last two days working on layouts and trying to figure out which pics I want to add.  They have tons of layout templates you can use.  Or if you feel fancy you can make your own.  I’m pretty impressed.  Since I ended up leaving work a little early today I worked on our book until Matt got home.  Then I realized we don’t have all of our wedding pics. 🙁  Matt’s uncle took our pics and did a great job but it doesn’t look like we got some of the ones posted on FB.  I’m hoping he will add these to Shutterfly so I can get better quality pics.

    So that has really been my day.  Till tomorrow!
