I wanted to update yesterday about the day I had, but by the time I got home, I just wasn't up for it. Then I wanted to post sometime earlier today, but I just kept putting it off. I'm making myself do it now. (This is an abridged version.)

OMG U GAIZ! Monday was the worst day I've had in a while.the rest of the wall o' text is under here )

Wow. That ended up much longer than I expected.

tl;dr - My alarm didn't go off, I was half an hour late to the Dr., I was locked out of the WITH the keys and it took 6 more hours for me to leave.

I should really update. I know I should have at least a few days ago, but I just haven't really had the time. i haven't really had much time on the internet lately. I've been getting up late and going to bed early. Not necessarily going to sleep, but lying down and slowly falling asleep. Okay, so it's more that I catch something on TV before I fall asleep and want to finish it. Or for a few days Corie was falling asleep on the couch and I couldn't lie down until she woke up.

I've been so tired lately because of my Vitamin D. The Dr. and I were just talking about it the other day. I guess when he first tested me my Vit D was below 6, which is the lowest it can get. It's supposed to be around 50 or higher. For a while it was up around 27, but then it dropped down to 15 the last time it was tested. It only dropped like that because the high dose I need to be on for a while to get it up costs $15 for 4 pills and I just couldn't afford that and my Prednisone. The Prednisone is a little more important for now. I'll be weened off that before too long, so then I can really get the Vit D like I need. He said that even after I get it up I'm probably going to have to be on 1000-2000 units a day. The Rx is 50,000 units a week, so even 2000 units a day is way less. But if I don't want to feel so blah and get depressed, I'll have to take it.

Also, the shots are getting old. :\

Oh, and the Dr. wrote me a Rx for a handicap parking placard. I brought it up and he told me he was glad I'd remembered to ask him this time. Now I just have to fill out the paperwork (one short sheet) and give them my Rx. It's only $3.50 for it and he's got it for a year. We'll see where I'm at then.

Besides the health stuff, I don't think there's really anything else I need to update on. I already posted the pics of Bearded!Conan... Nope. I think that's about it for now.

The kids have been getting into the Beatles recently. I've been listening to a lot of Beatles, so they've been hearing it a lot lately. Connor dances to all the early stuff. It's really funny. The other night he was eating and dancing to 'Boys'. He couldn't stand still long enough to take more than a bite at a time.

Robbie's favorite is obviously Ringo. In fact, he says that Ringo is his boyfriend. I call George (and Dhani, Viggo, Karl, Conan, etc.) "My Sexy". Robbie asked if Ringo was my sexy and I said, not really, he was really awesome, but he's not really my sexy. Robbie was like, "He's MY sexy." And whenever he sees or hears Ringo he's all, "Ringo's my boyfriend."

Ryan is always talking about the Yellow Submarine. Such-and-such is in the Yellow Submarine, Yellow Submarine this, Yellow Submarine that. Last night he asked me how to spell(he's learning how to spell now, more on that some other time.) Yellow Submarine. I think it was too hard b/c he just looked at me instead of repeating it.

Speaking of YS, when Robbie saw it for the first time his first reaction was "That's WEIRD!" Of course, it was the part in the house...

That's all I can think of for now.

God Bless HBO On Demand! So Sunday Night I was laying on the couch watching Big Love when I saw that starting Monday HBO On Demand was going to have the whole season available. So Monday I watched episodes 1-3 and yesterday I watched 4 and 5. So now I'm all caught up on the whole season. YAY!

Monday, went home, did nothing. Same for Tuesday. Wednesday I picked up brother's car from him at work. Went to Plasma appointment, brother took me home when I picked him up from work. Rest of the day was boring. Thursday boring as well. Friday morning Paul left for Chicago for his Con. I got here shortly after and went to my appointment. Corie went for the first time. When she donates the second time, I get a $15 "Buddy Bonus". Woo!

Since brother is gone all weekend, I'm crashing here at his house. Gonna have dad pick me up on his way home from work Tomorrow morning.

Last night after my entry I got all ready to go to bed. SO I lay down about 4. I was so tired, my eyes were watering. I woke up about an hour later, in pain. My back's been out for a while. And there's something pinched in it too. I got back to sleep after a few minutes, only to wake up again at 7:30. I was in so much pain I couldn't breathe, and I was almost crying. And of course, Paul never uses Aspirin oor anything so I couldn't take anything for it. Although, if I thought I could make it out to the car and over to Corie's, I would have gone over there to see if I could swipe one of cousin's pain pills for his shoulder. But I knew I'd never make it. Besides, I wasn't sure if anyone would be up at that time. (turns out she was up then)

Last time my back was out really bad and I could barely walk, I laid on brother's floor (it's concrete with a little padding and carpet) for about an hour or so and when I got up I was all better. So I decided to try that. But it was really awkward for some reason. I laid there for a bit, but I still couldn't breathe, so I got up. I had only laid there for about 15-20 minutes. I went to the bathroom and, I swear, I had a headache that could kill a buffalo. My head felt like it was going to explode. And the tiny bit of light streaming in his wondows made my eyes feel like they were going to explode as well. SO I tried going back to bed. I discovered that laying on my stomach helped ease the pain a bit, so I finally fell asleep again. About 11:30 I was woken up by the phone. (thanks a bunch, Corie.)

Still in some pain, but it's bearable at least. I think I might brave the walk to the car later to go get some Ibuprofin or Aleve from Corie. For now, I'm just going to try not to strain myself too much. Might take a little nap after I make and eat lunch.

Onto the randomness:
YAY! HBO orders up season two of Big Love

And on a related Big Love note, if you go to the Big Love site, you can read Margene's blog. Great stuff.

Why do I spend so much money (that I can't really afford to spend anyway) on food when I know I don't need to buy it? The last two times I've gone to Aldi I've spent $10 on food. Now, it may not seem like much, but at Aldi and for one person, that's a LOT. I swear, it's like a sickness. I go in there knowing exactly what I want, but instead get about 10 additional things and I always end up with so much stuff. It's crazy. One of these days I'll learn to control myself there.

Having said that...I'm about ready to head back today to get some cookies or something. I need cookies and they have some good ones. And of course, since Paul never has milk here, I'm gonna have to buy some milk too. Well...there goes the rest of my money. *sigh*

Does anyone out there happen to have a cap of the opening of Big Love when they're all twirling away on the ice when it's cracking, or know where I can find one? I was looking yesterday, but haven't found anything. I want to make a Big Love icon and that's my favorite little bit of the opening. Maybe even just a good pic of Bill and the wives. I found a couple of those, but they're not so great for my uses.

And now for a few quizzes that have popped up all over my F-list over the past week:
Quizzes ho! (Or is that: 'Quizzes. Ho.'? ^_^) )

Well...I think that's about it for now. If I think of anything else, I'll come back. And now, I'm off to make me some shrimp stir fry. Mmmmm....

(It took me an hour and a half to write this entry?!? Where DOES the time go?)

ETA: How do you get a header at the top of your journal? I saw somwhere how to do it, but now I've lost the entry. Not sure if I'm going to do it, but I'd like to see how it looks.

So tired. I don't even really know why. Other than I woke up last night/this morning shivering.

I'm staying at Paul's for the weekend because I'm recording some movies that are on digital cable channels (that we don't have at home).

Sorry I haven't been on much. Wednesday morning before dad and I left, I was going to print out my reworked resumé. I had to update my references. He told me that it wasn't working. He kept getting a "fatal error" message that morning. Which is kind of funny because it worked fine for me the night before. But whatever. So he dropped it off to Clayton and I walked to Paul's. They live around the corner from each other. Anyway, I went to my appointment Wednesday and when I got back to Paul's (he was at work) I got a call from dad, saying he was in the hospital. He stopped in about his leg and they admitted him. again.

Anyway, so then I was home all day Thursday, with nothing to do. Then I came back over here Friday to use Paul's car again for another appointment. Was only on the internet that day for a little bit.

Then I recorded my movie today and had to pick dad up from the hospital and did a bunch of other stuff before coming back. Then dad got on the internet to pay for some stuff. By the time he got off, I was watching the last couple episodes of Big Love. Interesting show. I wish I had HBO so I could watch it every week. If Paul would remember I would have him tape it for me. But then, I guess I could always just catch the reruns when I'm here, huh?

So, I finally got on the net a little bit ago to catch up. I've missed so much in the last few days! I'm still not all the way caught up. It's that darned VFB. It's so quiet when I can be on whenever, but as soon as I don't have net access for a couple days, it explodes! Do you guys time this stuff, or what?? Hopefully I'll be able to catch up on it tonight or tomorrow before I go home. If not, I guess I'll have a ton to catch up on Wednesday.

So that's why i haven't been around much this past week. Still don't know what's wrong with the comp, but as soon as I know, I'll let y'all know. I sure hope we get it back and working soon.

P.S. I LOVE that I have so many icons to choose from now! I still have more space, but I have to go through the rest of the icons I've made so I can fill up most of the spots. I'm gonna leave a few spots empty, just in case I run across some that someone else makes that I want to use. Although, I'd much rather make them myself. But I can't make anything fancy, like stuff with brushes or animated things. Although, I have a few ideas for animated icons, if I can just get someone to animate them for me...once I get the pics together.

P.P.S. Sorry to anyone that read this entry before I edited it. Paul snuck up behind me and started mashing his hands on the keyboard and hit the button before I could do anything to stop him. Ain't brothers great?

So, dad's really sick today. His leg is infected again, he's got chills (currently under about 4 or so blankets), and he thinks he's got a kidney infection. So my day has been spent listening to him moan in his sleep and listening to him go up and down the stairs to the bathroom and back.

Got into a little tiff with Corie earlier. I asked her what a post she made was all about because it confused me and she thought I was mad for some reason. And then I didn't talk because I was letting her talk and I was listening, so when I said that, she said she was gonna go. I mean, come on! She didn't even ask how I was doing. So that got another little thing started. But she changed the subject and asked how I was. Before I could answer, uncle asked me to go to the store for him, so I told her I'd be back. She said ok. When I came back a few minutes later, she was signed out and hadn't even said why. So, if you read this before I talk to you again, WTF happened?

And...Does anyone know anything about pear trees? This has been bugging us for a couple years, and I meant to ask about it last summer, but never did. I got reminded when I was outside and saw the pear tree flowering. Okay, we've got a pear tree. Not sure exactly what kind, but they're regular pears, ya know. Anyway, a while back, before we lived here, Uncle or someone had cut the smaller branches off. Just left the bigger main ones that didn't fruit anyway. It was Grandma's tree and since she had died, it basically went to waste since he didn't really use them to cook like she did. But when Mom and Dad bought the house it started to grow again (Uncle hadn't tarred over it or anything). Well, since it's grown back, the newer branches have thorns on them. It never had thorns before. We can't figure out how ar why it's started getting thorns on it. We don't have anything (fruits or not) that have thorns on them, which is why it's so puzzling. At first, we thought maybe it was some sort of bush or tree that just happened to be growing next to it, but the thorned branches actually had pears on them, so it IS the pear tree that has thorns. If anyone knows anything about pears and could help me out, that would be great. Even some kind of theory would be nice. All I know is that we're stummped.

And just 'cause...
some quizzes )
domino43: (Conan)
that I love Finnish names. Especially girls names.

Through the board I've met some Finns with some great names and I've completely fallen in love with them.

My favorites:
And of course (though not from, it IS a Finnish name) the lovely Anneli. ^_^)

And then there's Milla and Mikael. They're not as "foreign" as the others, but nice all the same.
domino43: (Viggo)
Okay, not today, but Yesterday (Friday).

Had an appointment at 11:15AM and actually got to drive myself. Dad wanted me to take the van. So I got up at 10, left the house about 10:30, got gas then headed on down to Findlay. Got there a little late. As usual. About 11:25. But they never notice anyway. They're always a little behind, so even when I get there on time I have to end up waiting a bit.

Got done with appt about 1:00PM, drove to Bowling Green stopped by [profile] spaceygirl_1's house to talk to her for a minute. Grabbed gas and coffee, then a quick lunch on my way back home. Had to wait for dad to get home. He FINALLY got home about 5:00 and gave me gas money to go get little brother. So I took off for Michigan to get him. Made bad time. I took a wrong turn and it ended up taking me WAY out of my way. Eventually got there. Little brother drove us back to BG. Went to Corie's again. Had to drive back to Findlay (or at least most of the way) to take an old H.S. friend of ours to the bus stop. She left the state to go to North Carolina. She had to go at night so that her husband wouldn't know she was leaving. They've been having problems. Problems? Pfft. That's the understatement of the year. He's been beating her and then threatened to kill her. So she finally got the courage to leave him. Got back to BG around 1:15AM But by the time I switched Corie's van back for dad's truck (we switched his van for his truck when bro and I first got to BG and dad was on his way to work) and got home, it was about 3:00 AM.

Sitting in vehicles all day is no fun. You know, I was thinking about it...With all the driving/riding I did that day, I could have driven to NYC. Or out to GT and half way back.

I missed Conan's St. Patty's day episode, which if any of the comments on [profile] conan_obrienor the forums are any indication was an especially great epi. But...I guess getting friend away from her a-hole husband was a little more important.

P.S.  Little note to anyone that knows how and is willing to tell me...How do you get a different word to show up instead of someone's actual username, yet the link till goes to their LJ?

Well, I really should update, but I don't feel much like it at the moment. Guess I'll ramble a bit and put off a real update, probably just quizzes, for tomorrow, or something.

Hmmm... Guess this qualifies as an update, huh?
domino43: (Viggo)
I guess it's time I got on with how my (near) week with the boys and Corie went.

Well, I think that just about brings everyone up to speed with what went on with me when I disappeared.

Only not quite so out there and totally random...

Okaley-dokely.  Night all!  I'm off to dreamland, hopefully to have a nice steamy dream of the Vigster...or the Urbanmeister...or maybe Conan, hmmm...haven't surpassed the infamous "Conan dream" yet... There's something to shoot for.  (Yeah, that's ALL I need...  A reason for my family to laugh at me even more!  The first dream about him was so steamy, they STILL laugh about it.)

domino43: (Viggo)

Okay, you can skip this entry if you want, 'cause I don't even know if I'll be able to follow it, and I know what is in my head!

Toatl Randomness abounds! )

Well, I think that's it for now.  I must be off to bed.  It's after 5 AM and I really need some sleep.

domino43: (Default)

Okay, there's going to be a LOT of rambling and trivial stuff in this post, so I'm putting it behind a cut.  Go ahead and skip it if you want, or read it if you're brave enough.  *I am NOT liable for headaches caused from trying to follow/understand this post.*

Read more... )

Well, Dad's home now, so I guess I'll give his computer back to him.  And I think that tomorrow I'll make a Karl Wallpaper.
