Boy! What a weekend! I am making my weekend start on Thursday of last week. I went to the dentist for a routine cleaning & the were concerned about some things that they saw and referred me to an oral surgeon. No big deal...so I thought.(more in a bit) I called to make the appointment on Friday & it was scheduled for Monday (today). I then went about my weekend.
I went to the Smucker's Skating Spectacular at the US Figure Skating Championships & was able to see several former Gold Medalists & got to see those skaters representing the USA at the 2010 Olympics. It was very cool! I took my mother-in-law, Marion, to the event. She loved it. She was even surprised that I would take her. It was so good. There is a lot of skating talent and even future olympians that are amazing skaters. Needless to say we had a good time.
Monday (today) arrived and I went to my appointment at the oral surgeon and they are going to be taking biopsies of a spot on my tongue & along my gum line. Fun times! I get to do that tomorrow morning. That means that I have to eat soft foods for a couple days. I have also been told that I will be in a lot of pain. Boy, I am sooo looking forward to that! I will have stitches in both spots they are doing the biopsy from. I am also taking a couple of days off of work because I answer phones & will not be able to do that for a couple of days. Now, I am a bit nervous with anticipation for both the surgery & results. I hope it does not take too long for either. Funny, this is just what is happening to me. Will is a whole different story.
On to Will.... Will had a physical today that went really well until the blood draw. He almost passed out because it was taking so long. They had to give him smelling salts & gave him a soda. They also made him lay-down until he wasn't feeling woozy. They told him that he could come back at a later date for the blood draw, but he told them to try again. This time they told him to lay down and they would draw blood from the other arm. Needless to say it went much better the second time around. They also did an EKG and have scheduled him for a stress test. With family history of heart attacks they just want to be safe and pro-active. I am glad about that. I want him around for a long time. :)
I guess we are just beginning to show our ages. Not sure I like that but it is in God's hands and I think that is where I will leave it.
It has been so nice this winter. The weather has been cooperating this yeas as we have not had the snow "dump" that we have had to deal with the past 2 years. It is almost like we are/have already headed into spring. It has been BEAUTIFUL!
Question for the day/week: What else do you find beautiful?
It is only Wednesday and I am ready to throw in the towel. It has been one of those weeks. I don't know where to begin. I guess I will just be random. Monday was a very busy day! After having four lovely & wonderful days off, I had to go back to work. I really do love my job, but I was not looking forward to the work load that I was going to have. I am one of those who doesn't like to leave a job half finished at the end of the day. I like to have it completely completed. Hence the stress that I was feeling going to work on Monday. I did get it all done. On Tuesday, I left work feeling ill. The smell of the fresh brewed coffee that someone had brewed made me want to toss my cookies. I knew then that I was not feeling well because I really enjoy the smell of fresh brewed coffee. I am glad my office mate allowed me to go home early. However, I was supposed to have a basketball date with my husband at the school he teaches at. I was very sad that I was going to miss it because I was not feeling well. Which brings me to the reason I am sad about having to break my date.
I miss my husband! He has been sleeping in our downstairs guest room because he has been having severe anxiety issues that do not allow him to sleep. This is not the first time that this has happened. It happened 2 summers ago as well. Ever since then he has had issues sleeping. Even taking a prescription sleeping aide does not help. We have tried lots of natural remedies as well. It has been very frustrating for me and especially him. I mean there are days that he will function on just an hour of sleep sometimes. He has chosen to sleep downstairs so that he will not disturb my sleep, which is nice but I still miss him. I just hope that he will be able to somewhat sleep again someday.
I have also been very frustrated about a computer at work & apparently my inability to add our office printer to it. I have been working on this issue for the past 2 days on & off and I am getting very frustrated that it is not working. GRR!
I also have been trying to keep up with my niece's latest hospital stay. She apparently had an abscessed tooth that got up into her sinuses & she was admitted into the hospital because of the infection. The poor thing had to have an IV and the hospital couldn't get one started. So, she was basically a pin cushion. She is now doing better and hopefully will be released from the hospital tomorrow.
I just got back from the movie The Blind Side. What a GREAT movie. I loved the fact that it is based off of a true story. Those I think are some of the best movies. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It is a must see!
Well 2009 is done and gone! I am not sure what to think of 2009, but I know that I am sort of excited to see what 2010 brings. Since it is the start of a new year, I thought that I would try my hand at blogging. I am not sure blogging is for me, but it is worth a try. I am not sure what direction this blog will take but that is alright. It could just be a place for me to reflect on life, relationships, and other stuff that is on my mind at the time. What's on my mind right now is, what is in store for me in 2010? That is the question of the day.
