We drove all the way up for the appointments for the girls. They had them scheduled for tomorrow. Now when I wrote this on my calendar for the 30th, I repeated the info to them 2 times. I got the “yes that is correct.” So I was NOT happy about it. Not to mention I hate the drive. So their new appointments are on the 21st of August. UGH

So while I was there I picked up a couple of 10 gallon fish tanks for the rats. I think that was the only good part of the day.

Then we decide to hit Arby’s on the way home. The order was a regular roast beef, a medium roast beef, a chicken bacon and swiss, and a cheese stick. So they seemed to have trouble so we sat there to look at the order. Heaven tells me there isn’t any cheese sticks so I relay that. Then she opens the box (that she thought was the chicken sandwich, and it was the cheese sticks), so then she says it is the chicken sandwich, so I relay that. Turned out it was the medium roast beef that was missing. I finally relayed that. I felt like a dunce. So if you work at Arby’s and that was you, a heartfelt apology.

Then there is crazy road construction all over the place, so I come to a red light. A flagger waves at me with her flag, I go. Well evidently I was supposed to follow the red light not the flagger. So I felt like an idiot again. Not that I feel completely to blame on that one, after all I was taught to follow flaggers….

To top it off I feel so itchy and irritable because of my healing skin, and my lips feel like someone ripped the top layers of them off…. Just not feeling to happy today! Hopefully tomorrow will be better.


I am SOOOO unfair!!!

July 23, 2008

So Heaven slept until after 10, Nina until after 1. They woke up to the following list;

1. Take out the trash

2. Vacuum the living room floor

3. Dump the cat box

4. Dust the living room

5. Clean up the front yard

OMG, they are so fricken abused… They want to go to the lake! Never mind that I spend at least 3 hours a morning cleaning. They can help… *SIGH

Day 6

July 23, 2008

This will be my last talk about Isagenix unless something absolutely thrilling happens. I am sold on the system (well minus my weigh in days I will share those.) So I am down 5 pounds as of yesterday and the scale says the same thing today. I look forward to putting in my next order! I feel great and so on…

Yesterday, took Nina to her appointment and her arm looks really good. She still has a small part that isn’t completely healed, but as long as she doesn’t do anything tremendously bad to it, it will be fine. I figure since the orthopedic surgeon appointment isn’t until the 30th, the x-rays checking it out wouldn’t be so bad. A few things that made me feel even better about my Dr office? They had us written down (for this) with doctors we didn’t see. Not  huge, but never the less you kind of expect your doctors to be perfect. Also the doctor we saw yesterday said it was not normal for a cast to come right off (which really doesn’t surprise me). However, it getting wet would explain it. Which honestly made me laugh because I tried so hard to get her in because it got wet. (Which was why her arm was blistering under the cast, and why she didn’t get in trouble for taking the cast off.)

I think that is about it…

Day 5

July 22, 2008

Well here I am, and I thought for sure I would feel horrible. I didn’t feel horrible last night but not really good either. And the snacks “curbed” the hunger but didn’t take it away. This morning I feel great though! I haven’t taken any Isaflush yet, but I plan on adding it tomorrow.

Great news, the doctors office I was attempting to get an appointment with has called and the girls both have appointments on the 30th! (Dr. Dunn) So orthopedic surgeon her we come! YAH…

OH I forgot to tell my favorite part of my diet (supposed to be anti-diet). I haven’t been able to wear my favorite ring for months, and last night I was able to put it on! Granted it is still a little tight, but I am still so exited!

OK so yesterday, I was telling Katrina how she has to be careful because she hasn’t had x-ray’s yet. Heaven pops up and says “ya or you could end up with this.” The this? Her broken arm from 2 years ago (4-wheeler) didn’t heal right. So last night I asked a friend who knows way more about this stuff than I do what I should do. She told me to call an orthopedic surgeon, well a specific one, who to get an appointment with and the works.

So all morning I have been on the phone attempting to do that. I am not sure the why on some of it. First they write down all the info and say they will call me back, as they have to find out which doctor would be best. Then they call back and say they have to have all the records to see if they will see them. (I am attempting to make an appointment for both of them – both arms (one on each of them) and a small fracture Heaven got while walking across the road in flip flops.)

So I have this terrible feeling that my local clinic is going to be a bit angry with me. I called them and asked them to fax both the records for Katrina and Heaven. I am hoping to have a call back and an appointment before Nina’s next scheduled (Tuesday), for her x-rays and removal of her cast. If I get the appointment with the ortho I “think” I will cancel the Tuesday appointment.

You know those books “_____ for dummies”, well I need one with that blank being doctors. Which doctors to see for what injury, when to worry about the care and all that. I really don’t trust many of them so I research everything. However, there are a couple of problems. First when it is medical care, every situation is a little bit different so you can’t be sure. Second, I realize I am getting my information from the internet which is only so complete and so correct. <sigh> Should have attempted medical school! (Well not really I don’t have the memory for it, but the wish is there.)


July 15, 2008

So Katrina took her cast off today. As in slid it right off… Which Wow from the wetness from Friday her skin is raw! So I think it is a goodish thing. We will treat it real carefully, still no real activity and stuff, but I am not taking her back in. However, she is now all worried about it. <Sigh> I have never met an eight year old that is such a worry wart.

Anyway going to research it now to see if we should do anything to it since it hasn’t been x-rayed. 😛
