rough few days but the end is good!

I know I have been MIA lately.
This is my time of the year when I get a little down.
I am convinced it is seasonal.

Well, I think I mentioned being sick in a past post and I just want to stress that I wasn't just a little under the weather... I was down for the count! Seriously, like 10 days down.

I had had an appointment already on the books for a new PCP and I went ahead and went even though I would have rather been under the covers. I have had a few symptoms of Lupus. There was enough to justify testing along with testing for Hep C as I live with someone who has it. I wasn't too worried about the Hep C but we thought we would throw that in for fun. What's a couple move vials of blood, eh?

So, I started to feel a little bit back to normal earlier this week and yesterday I got all my test results back..

Wait for it



yes, this 41 y/o has a touch of the kissing disease.
Strange, haven't kissed anybody, sadly!

I'm told I am going to be just fine.

Hope to be back to blogging soon.

kick me while I am down

Got this lovely comment today to a post I did way back when...

Anonymous said...
how about that realize band national recall, every band has been recalled due to a part around the port. Also new data from the Realize Spokesman Dr. Ponce saying you will lose significantly more weight with the Lap-Band than the Realize or Realize C band

go on and kick me while I'm down why don't you?

Day 5 – A photo of yourself two years ago

I'm feeling a bit under the weather... Day 4 of being home from work. Sigh!
But with sticking to my goal of finishing this 30 day post mission I am posting a couple pictures from two years ago.

These would both be pre-band & 89 lbs ago. I've had my band now for 14 months

Day 4 - favorite photograph of your best friend

This is my best friend Laura. We have been friends since 4th grade, a very long time.
Oh, the trouble we escaped through the years. I shudder to think that our daughters have done anything like we did. Everyone thought I was the bad influence but that is So. Not. True! :)
She has been there through some hard times. Like when my brother was killed, or when my heart was broke. She was one of the few supporters of my decision to have WLS as well.
Now we live 6 hours apart so it is rare that we get together. Thank goodness for facebook!

Day 3 - your idea of a perfect first date

Since I have been married like forever and never really dated this is a hard one. I wouldn't have the first clue what I would enjoy about a first date. I'd probably be sick. I'M SHY, REMEMBER?

I will share an embarrassing story that happened recently, promise not to laugh at me, K?

My coffee guy,(I like to call him that but really he is not just my coffee guy) whom I see only a couple times a week at the drive up stand I get my fix at is such a cutie.

I'm old enough to be his mother, Sigh!

anyway, I am a total idiot around him. I stutter, blush, break out in hives.

It. Is. Awful!

I can't help it, Sometimes I can only muster a head shake nodding yes to my usual order. don't get me wrong, I am just another customer, no special treatment but this handsome boy turns me into a MORON!

So here I was, Monday before last, pulling into the street where the coffee stand is and I am giving myself the talk in the rear view. Don't be an idiot, Don't try to talk, Breathe deep. So I pull up to the window and he said these three words:

"Good Morning Jen"

I started laughing. Not just giggles but laughing so hard that tears were rolling down my cheeks and I couldn't catch my breath and then he started laughing because laughter is contagious and all and so yeah, 3 minutes later I got my order out and left with my head in my hands and tail between my legs. I know he thinks I am insane. Oh Well, maybe I am!

Yep! That is probably how a first date would go for me.

Day 2 - A photo of something you ate today

In keeping up with the 30 day MeMe challenge I am posting my day 2 photo of something I ate today. Although the picture doesn't make it look too good... It was pretty tasty. I was watching the cooking channel on Sat. and this was one of the recipes.

"Chipotle Chicken Thighs with Chunky Guacamole"

The 30 day MeMe - day 1

To Band or Not to Band has posted a 30 day challenge of sorts which I think is perfect for a slacking blogger like myself.

Day 1 - A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.

My day started about midnight with a knock on the door with my neighbor from a mile away returning my horse! From what we can gather a bear must have scared her and she burst through the fence. (evidence of both) She was unhurt thankfully and is now living in the barn until the fence is 100% mended. My day was cleaning the barn and moving the water buckets & hay. Then we started on the fence.

I took a nap....

Then we were off to town for dinner and some grocery shopping. Fun eh? lol

I miss everyone, I have been such a slacker! I am loving all the pictures from the BOOBS weekend and I am so sad I didn't go. Next one for sure!

Up next: a photo of something you have eaten that day...
