And when I am crossed from crocheting when I actually have to look, I work on "The Dolgeville Afghans!"  I named them this because I was living in Dolgeville when I was shown how to make it.

A Question and a new Boob name

for those of us who have had Breast Surgery, along with cancer removal from Luuuuuuccccccyyyyyyyy, I had Ethel reduced. Well, today somehow I thumped Luuuuucccccyyyyyy with a finger and I stopped what I was doing…. it sounded hollow. I thumped it again and I’ll be horney swabbed, the boob is hollow sounding! What would cause that? Now I’ve had to rename Luuuuuccccyyyyyy to Mount Saint Hollow! ROFLMBO

Three days until Surgery!

We finally got the floors finished and dried and last night we got the living room furniture  set up, now my office stuff needs to be put together. Then tomorrow we have a cleaning service coming to clean the house, I hope I get things put in place before they get here...

Miscellaneous craziness

My husband says I watch way "Ghost Hunter" type shows!

My husband is sick with a bad cold so he is sleeping in his office. I woke up last night about 3 AM and noticed a white light standing next to his side of the bed. I lay there and watched it a while. It looked like a man standing there... I looked away then back again to see if it would go away, nope still standing there. The two cats trying to crowd me off the edge of the bed weren't reacting to this apparition. So I said "Burton, is that you?" No answer. Hmmmmmm. So I turned the light on and the apparition was gone. I sat quietly for a second pondering if I should go check on my man to see if he was still around but some really loud snoring was dancing down the hall so I knew he was okay. Turned the light off and there was the apparition again. Hmmmm. I looked around, rolled over to my husband's side of the bed and noticed that there was a white light coming out of the back of his clock radio... it was reflecting off my satiny curtains! "Debunked!" I said and rolled back over to my side of the bed. Then I thought "My curtains are pine green, shouldn't they reflect green? Ah well, I ain't going to bother with it." Back to sleep I went. Maybe it was the wine... but we've had these curtains for almost a year, why hadn't I noticed Casper before?

Found some cool Pink eyeliner at Sephora's: Pink Glitter called "Groupie." I bought it but man, $18 for eye liner! I won't be shopping there too often! Of course the bottle will last forever and a day, not like the pencils I found later in Walmart. I have black, blue, and green glitter eyeliners (can't tell I like glitter, can ya!). I have glitter and pink glitter lip plumper (I've got them old lady lips and they need some help - plumper is better than needle botox!) and pink glitter nail polish. On Fridays I wear glitter on my cheeks, use to make people think I was nutz when I worked, then again they had already figured that one out!

Ever like to do things out of the ordinary just to kinda make people wonder about ya? Today I wore my silk Faerie gloves that I got at Faeriecon. You should have seen the looks! One guy asked me if I knitted them, I said no they were spun. The look on his face was priceless!

Overwhelmed!!!!

I have just been going over Medical Bills that came while I was gone and want to scream! I know I am over reacting because I hate math and dealing with bills and even dealing with money in general.

I have two types of Insurance: Anthem Healthkeepers and American Heritage Life Insurance Co which is cancer Insurance. I had the understanding that what one didn’t cover the other did but I just found out Office visits and blood work don’t count. No biggie in the large scale of things, I’m fairly sure the blood work is covered by Healthkeepers but I was totally unaware of the cancer insurance not covering Office visits or whatever… my mind is swirling so nothing is being understood right now. But I thank God that I had the presence of mind to take the cancer insurance when it was offered when I was last working! Comparatively speaking, paying a copay for an office visit here and there is nothing compared to what it could have been without the cancer insurance.

I think I will go take a nap!

Finally home!

I have been on a pet sitting job since last Saturday and it sure feels fantastic to be home! The weirdest thing was I could not get online from there which is totally unusual! I tried everything I knew to do, which wasn’t much and messed a few things up, then my youngest son came over and straightened out what I had done but still we couldn’t get online so I’m guessing it was their router that was the problem.

I had a hard time being away from home his time,I have so much to do and so little time to do it. I began to feel sick while I was there: ear ache, sore throat, sinus pain so I went to PCP. He said there didn’t seem to be any problems he could see but he put me on antibiotics anyways since I’m getting ready to have surgery. I’m thinking it was a Fibro thing, mine tends to act like that sometimes, fibro is weird!

Now my husband is sick, in fact he began to feel sick the same exact day I began only he really is sick! He’s been in bed for days! And the poor boy had two neighborhood pet sitting jobs to do along with the guys doing our floors and also taking care of our pets!

I have noticed that the closer I get to surgery date I am having trouble sleeping at night which is strange because I take meds to get to sleep! I seem to just lay there and in my mind I see myself going through the surgery and what happens afterward. And sometimes I hear my Dr tell me that once they got in the breasts they found so much more so they took both breasts and I will have to go through chemo. I guess it is the hidden fears of the heart.

I have been feeling emotional more and more. I’ve been getting ticked off at my husband because of something he would say when we are talking on the phone – I’m sure he doesn’t know it because I don’t act out, no reason to make someone else miserable just because I’m having a hard time. I’ve been having Fibro fog a lot lately and add stress over things that are going on, I’ve been a real mess. One afternoon , as I was backing out of the driveway, I hit my clients driveway lamp and almost knocked it down (It turned out to be okay).

And then today I saw “The Bucket List” – I’ve been wanting to see it for a long time, didn’t know what it was all about other than two guys make a list of things they would like to do and then go do them. Now that movie was a real tear jerker!

Well, the good thing is I made enough on this job to cover the expenses for that trip to Faeriecon so I won’t have that hanging over my head!

Anyhow, it is good to be home and back in Cyberspace!
