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.

The illness sounds like it really kicked your butt. Glad you're feeling a little better.

A vacation? That sounds fabulous. I desperately need a vacation.

Ok...I wanna know who the boy bander is! LOL. Hope you're feeling better. I am just starting to feel human again myself. Ugh.

Anth said...

I'm glad you're feeling better! Enjoy your child-free night.

Your husband always seems to be getting into hilarious-yet-embarrassing-to-him situations. Jumping off a ladder! Hee hee

And let me know who the boy-bander is!

There are a lot of hyphens in my comment...

Wendy said...

Oh man! I am glad that you are feeling better and I am sorry that you had to miss the concert. Your hubby is too funny. I so would have done the same thing. I am deathly afraid of buggies:( Oh, and I must know who the band member is.

Eriness said...

I must know too!

Lisanne said...

OK ... so where can you buy phen.ergan? I'm curious about that. Don't know whether it would work with my anxiety medication, but ... I've taken phen.ergan before, and it worked well. Can you get it on eBay? LOL! :) Oh, and I'm curious about the boy band thing.

Nellie said...

Your poor hubby! Glad to hear you are feeling better and I WILL be emailing you for that boy band guy's name!! :)

Lisanne said...

Thanks for your comment on my Facebook status update. Meredith "t.u." a few days ago, then Jeff woke up this morning at 4:45 a.m. getting sick, and Lucas has been sick all day. He can't keep much down. Prayers would be appreciated!!! I PRAY that I don't come down with it. REALLY bad for my anxiety. :(

I'm just catching up on my blog reading~last Fri. morning before the boys & I got up, we had a lightning strike & it zapped my DSL modem & my ISP overnight shipped me a new one but w/it being a Fri., I didn't receive my new modem til Mon. afternoon.

ANYWAY, lol, sorry you've been sick & hope you're on the mend. I know you must be beside yourself counting down the days til your vacation! Sorry about Matt's accident~~he does have quite the reputation for accidents, doesn't he~~& I say that w/the most sincerity ;)

I would love to hear details about the boy bander~I think you have my email but I'll leave it here just in case:


Take care & get some rest :)
