And I'll Cry If I Want to...

I should be busting at the seams of joy and excitement about our upcoming vacation which starts Friday, approximately by 4ish.
But...my ear infection is back, or is trying to.

I honestly don't know what my deal is. Summer 2010 can go down in my book as the worst for allergies. (Well, I say allergies but apparently the ear doctor thinks differently).

I called the ear specialist I went to about a month ago when I very first started having my pain in my right ear, and of course they are packed full with appointments tomorrow along with the Dr. having surgery lined up all morning....which leaves me with no ability to have my ear looked at before we leave Friday afternoonish.

With that being said, the receptionist said she would look over my records with the nurse first thing in the morning, and, with fingers crossed, they can send in a prescription for some antibiotics to be filled in time for our cruise. 

Please pray that I have some relief in pressure and pain all on it's own. It really puts a damper on my vacation knowing that I may have to deal with this.

But like my hubs said, "it is only Wednesday...maybe it will start feeling better before Friday."

Getting to Know You


1. What kind of athlete has the hottest body?
I think Football...a lot of the guys (my hubs) have that "meaty, I can kick your a** if you mess with 'em" type body...and I love it.
2. Are you a planner or a procrastinator?
I'd say a little of both. I get stressed when certain things aren't planned out, so I tend to try and get it somewhat planned out so I don't turn in to Satan, but then again...I procrastinate with a lot of stuff as well.
3. Diet or regular (soda)?
I love me some Diet Dr. Pepper....
4. What's your one "must have" for Fall?
I'm gonna go with some cute jackets and hoodies...cute hoodies, that is.
5. What's your favorite fast food restaurant?
I dunno anymore. And I have my reasons for that.
6. What do you think is the sexiest profession for a guy?
A banker. Wink. 
7. Did you wear braces?
Yes.
8. Would you rather have a guy that's super sexy or kind?
No doubt, kind. Looks can change quickly.

Thoughts for Thursday

  • Yesterday I had a vision of what I wanted to get accomplished around the house. Talking via text with my hubs about "my vision"...he yet again made me smile and chuckle to myself. (Actually making me laugh out  so loud, I had to share with my co-workers.) Here is a portion of our conversation:


This is yet another reason why I love him so much. He makes me laugh everyday whether it's something he says or does. I love you, babe!

  • Apparently the hubs and I weren't the only ones needing a nap when we got home. We slept for about an hour, to come in to the kitchen and find Buck passed out on the kitchen floor. 

  • Tomorrow is Friday, which means 1 week from tomorrow we will be heading to New Orleans after work! I honestly cannot wait, and I'm sure y'all can't either so I will shut up about it!
  • My poor Ops Manager has strep throat. I hope she feels better soon!
  • UP DATE: We found out yesterday that the tests Hubs had to take to check his Gallbladder came back normal. After reviewing everything, doctors decided that it wasn't necessary to do surgery, but to take medicine when he felt it was causing him discomfort. I am probably gonna schedule a follow up appointment after our Cruise!
  •  Well, enough thoughts for today! Hope everyone has a Happy Friday!

Progress Has Been Made

Not too long ago, I posted an entry talking about how something had to be done around this house with our organizational skills.

It was not only getting to my hubs, but to me. Something had to give.

I still ponder how two people can let it get like that. Starting this evening, things are changing...and I mean it.

I came home and started with our bedroom. I pulled everything out of the chest of drawers, separated Mike's clothes from mine....got rid of some, and then some more stuff...and before we know it, we had this....


I can honestly say I am ashamed of ourselves for letting it get to this. I knew I had endless amounts of clothes not being worn when so many of it could be getting used for countless things.

So to Goodwill they go....this weekend.

All of these bags won't fit in my car.

Much Better and a Whole Lot of Nothing

I think everyone knows just how much I love Goodwill. I seriously think I could furnish my whole house (in which I think I seriously have) from that place.

I have always thought that our house had a bunch of busyness going on...particularly in pictures, pictures of us. We have pictures galore in our house, and something that I have been conscious about is having too much of just the hubs and I....particularly in self portraits.

Another project of mine is to hang a lot of our framed pictures on the wall. Here below is a prime example of the busyness we have had going. In all honesty, I was trying to hide the eye sore of wires we have going on behind the TV center.

Sorry about the blinding glare...that's what Blackberry camera's will do 
for ya!

But then...I made my weekly daily trip to Goodwill, where I racked up on this fabulous buy of baskets! Oh how I love them!


One big basket in the center with two small ones on
the side.
The hubs and I think it looks a million times better. He has easy access to his gaming gear toys without having them exposed to the world, and the wires are disguised a lot better. Like I said, ya gotta love Goodwill!

Now on to more thoughts...

  • My love had his Hida Scan done this morning. We were thinking he would be "deathly ill for 5 minutes" as the nurse told us at the hospital. He said it was nothing. He got hooked up to an IV and then had to drink this liquid. We're waiting for the results hoping that we will know something sometime this week whether or not surgery will be needed to remove his gallbladder.
  • Today was a crazy, hectic day which made me 10 times more thankful to have a hubs and a home to come home to. I am so blessed to have a wonderful group of team players who makes it so much more enjoyable to come in to work each morning!
  • We are down to 2 weeks and 5 days till our Cruise! Can ya tell I'm excited??! 
  • Wednesday afternoon at 4 I start with a trainer at a local gym (the civic center) and I am in all honesty looking forward to it with the same nervous feeling. He's a "middle aged black boot camp guy" who looks like someone who would be a drill Sargent. He starts with an "interview" discussing our lifestyle, our goals...etc, etc...and takes that and creates a workout plan. We will see how this goes. We know how I love to stick with things.
  • Kaci and Buck are still loving having one another around for companionship. They make us laugh everyday with how they play with one another. 
  • I'm kind of disappointed that I will be missing another month of book club. I will definitely be attending September's meet, girls!
  • Well, I'm hoping everyone has a good night! I'm off to take a shower and hit the sack! Night, bloggers!
