Bullet briefs...

Just hopping on here to do a quick post. My parents have Ava tonight, so I am going to take full advantage, get some wine (or beer) pop in a movie and hit the bed early.

  • Last weeks sickness was in a nutshell my own personal hell. I sucked it up on Tuesday and went to the Doctor. No great revelations, I was told it was either a virus or some type of food poisoning which I already knew but dammit I wanted drugs. And what did she give me? Phen.ergen. I already have a lifetime supply of that. You can buy it on the internet cheaper than you can get it with insurance. Through some rather unpleasant tests they ruled out food poisoning. It was definitely a virus, and of course I was told to treat it symptomatically and wait it out. I don't want to get into the gross details of it all but it took me an entire week and 7 pounds later before I started feeling better. I still don't have much of an appetite, but at least now I can actually look at food without feeling like I'm gonna barf.
  • That Jimmy Buffet concert that I had been looking to for months???? Didn't go. IToo sick to go and I'm still pissed about it.
  • I have yet to get my period which I think is strange 6 weeks past D&C and a full month of BC later. No I am not pregnant. I've tested, negative, and I'm relieved.
  • I leave for vacation 5 weeks from tomorrow with Ava, my best friend and her 2 year old. I cannot be more excited. I need to get the hell out of here. I'll miss the hubbs but I need my girl time too.
  • Having someone else clean my house is totally worth sacrificing money I would have spent elsewhere.
  • I got addicted to Legally Blonde The Musical: The Seach for Elle Woods on MTV. I am ashamed to admit it. I am also ashamed to admit my other summer TV addictions.
  • My husband hasn't realized that fixing household items is not his forte'. Many of you remember when he fell through the ceiling in the bedroom a few months back. Well he got back home Saturday afternoon after being on a plane all night from Brazil, and right away he decided it was a good idea to have a few beers and then replace all of the flood lights around the outside of our house. They have been burnt out for over a year so one more day wouldn't have been a big deal. As he went to change the last one he knocked against a wasp nest, and instead of taking it like a man and risk the chance of a sting, he jumped off a 6 foot ladder. And therefore here is where we spent part of our Saturday night...doesn't he look happy to see me?

  • Nothing broken thankfully, just a sprain and some ligament damage, but nevertheless he's doped up on Vico.din, has to use crutches and to top it off he now has a nasty sinus infection. To say he's been pleasant to be around would be the understatement of the year.
  • A very good friend of mine has been talking/texting a very famous boy bander for a few months, and she told me today that he called her last night inviting her to come to LA this weekend for a private CD screening, and then she's staying at his house. I'm not going to put it out on the blog, but if curiosity gets the best of you...leave me your email in the comment section (if I don't already have it) and I'll spill it.

I actually wanted to talk/bitch about the sleeping problems that Ava has had lately, but that's going to have to wait because moi? Sick. The achy, feverish, gastrointestinal kind, and to say that I've enjoyed it would be a gross understatement. It sort of started last night after dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, I chalked it up to nerves and anxiety as Matthew was on a plane to Brazil and wasn't due in until after 1:00 AM. Then this morning I just felt off. I was up bright and early because I needed to get the mutt to the kennel so I could anxiously await my new cleaning lady's arrival! Ironic how I planned for her to come while Matthew was out of town don't ya think? Anyhoo, I had already made plans for my mom to get Ava because I knew if she didn't, she would be all up in cleaning lady's way. So while my upstairs was becoming spotless, I was holed up in the basement on the couch and I didn't leave it until cleaning lady left at 4, and then I resorted to the bed where I've been every since. I'm desperately waiting on someone to bring me soup, water and Sprite, but as of about 30 minutes ago the little one started vomiting too. I'm totally heartbroken that she's not with me and she feels like crap, but with Matthew gone I've been told by my mom to stay put. For once I don't care that there isn't someone here to take care of me, I just wish I was the one holding her instead of her grandma.

The good news about all of this is that my house looks lady has been hired to come every 4 weeks. I was also really planning on starting my diet today, and because I haven't put anything in my body that didn't taste like cardboard, I should be well on my way to that first week goal of 4 pounds.

The bad? This shit (pardon the expression) better vacate it's premises in time for Buffet on Thursday. The really bad? I don't have a babysitter as all of my sitters are going to the concert with me...must work on mother in law pronto.
