Swine Flu

Yes, folks....believe it. My boss came to the conclusion today that we both got it. Thankfully we both hit it hard with vitamins and drugs so it didn't kill us but after reviewing the symptoms and looking in to it a bit he decided that we both got hit with it. Yes....Even I recently was in Mexico though I don't think that's where I got it. My boss was down in San Diego and got deathly sick with the blessed "even my hair hurts" flu right after coming home....and guess who got sick shortly there after?? Moi. Yup. Stupid swine. Thankfully though, we're both alive and well....just fighting off the pesky lingering cough. He's had his for about a month and a half now and I'm over two weeks now. Good times. Dare I say that means the incubation period is roughly 2-4 weeks? Yuk

Hair Cut

So I posted this on Facebook but I'll post it here too. I got my hair cut and I love it :-) My roomate rocks. Oh, and I dyed it too. I love this color on me. Makes my green eyes pop!

So as of late I have taken to watching what I spend more closely because we made an offer on a house and if we get it (unlikely) we'll both really have to reign in our spending. I've been using the great Hilary Erickson as my example because she is the most thrifty person I think I have ever met. I've started saving the coupons and ad's that we get in the mail and actually looking through them before I throw them away. Tonight, dinner will be at El Pollo Loco for a whopping $2.99 due to a lovely coupon.

Right now, we have a bit of what I consider "disposable income" because our rent isn't bad and Taylor is working full time and has benefits now which made our income go up by about 20%. How easy it is to take that for granted and just spend more. Don't get me wrong, we're also saving a lot more as well. So anywho, I am trying my hand at being a mega penny pincher right now. Wish me luck.

On another note: I just got an email on myspace from a long lost best friend who i haven't seen in two or three years. We used to be really close but he sort of stopped talking to me when he met his now "baby mama". Which I get it...Life happens but I admit I was rather sad that he didn't even wish me well when I told him I was getting married (again on myspace email). Nope. No response at all. It was heart breaking considering how close we used to be.... So anyway, he emails me and appologizes for being a "douche" and thanks me for always being a good friend to him no matter what. He is being deployed to Afganistan in a few days and he wanted me to know that he still thinks of me from time to time and appreciates our friendship. Can I just tell you how wonderful that was to hear? I pray that he will be safe. He is a rare breed of an amazing human being. We all have our "douche" moments because we get wrapped up in ourselves and life. But then our "Afganistans" come up in life and make us remember and be greatful the important things in life. God be with you my friend....

Blogging hurts

Soooo, I had surgery Friday....ooodles of fun. Drugs are good. Well at least anesthesia is good. The puking for hours the next day wasn't so fun. The jury is out on exactly why I was yaking so much. My boss (doctor) thinks I got some bad bacteria in my intestnal tract from the hospital. Others think it is the pain meds though I haven't thrown up since Sat and have been taking them every night before bed. I get the splint off Friday. Yay!

My little nephew Thomas has been transfered to Primary Childrens Hospital because he may have a blockage. When they give him milk he bloats up but isn't gaining weight becaus he as been IV fed since birth due to not being able to process the milk. Keep him in your prayers.

In other news, we put an offer in on a house also on Friday. We're still waiting to hear but chances aren't great since there are "bidding wars" going on in our price range due to the overabundance of investors (people with too much dang money) swooping on them to flip them and sell for twice the price or more. Jerks! They are making it unaffordable to live here!!!Again!!!
