About the Same

August 1, 2008

I haven’t done anything different the last few days, well except my nails. They are a dark purple, with a light silver at the top. They look pretty awesome. Guess you are going to have to take my word on that one though.

I woke up this morning by ripping one of my “healing” blisters off my lip. Which I highly do not recommend, because let me tell you, if it pulls you out of a dead sleep… Most likely it doesn’t feel good.

The Burn

The Burn


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.

Growing Up

July 30, 2008

Yesterday we went to town and Heaven took her driving test for her hardship. The lady said she did really well, and she now has her hardship. So we celebrated by going and getting her some applications for a job. I am not sure on my feelings about it, but I do feel a bit old at the moment. Although, I swear I am not really old.

Today is the orthopedic surgeon appointments. Which is a long drive, but hopefully we will find out something. I really want Heaven’s wrist to be all better. So I am hoping that happens. 🙂

I blistered yesterday everywhere I had burn. I looked like an alligator. I know I shouldn’t have but I soaked for a long time so those blisters would come off. So now I have a little bit of pealing skin left, but no blisters. Heaven helped rub them off.

I am SO miserable today. I got up at 6 this morning and took another cool baking soda bath. Then went back to  bed for a while (until almost 10). My lips even got sunburn, I didn’t realize it until this morning though. I thought they were dry and chapped so I have been treating them with Vaseline for the lips. My punishment for not realizing this, simple blisters on my lips. *SIGH

I didn’t do anything but watch TV yesterday. My house is refilthifing itself. *yes I know that isn’t a word. I did come up with something that I think is interesting. I truly believe if you have studied a culture and have no respect for that culture, you learned nothing. It amazes me how many cultures there are and were, and how people just assume those cultures are awful and don’t take the time to really learn about them.

I suppose as boring as it is that is my post 🙂

Busy Day Yesterday

July 26, 2008

So yesterday I went with Dust so he could have some work on his Vstar thing. We spent most of the day gone, which ruined my cleanse day. I ate at the olive garden, but I only had salad and breadsticks. It wouldn’t have been cheating (I could have had soup even) if it would have been a shake day, but it was a cleanse day. Oh well it tasted SO good I think it was worth it. And really only the breadsticks were cheating.

Bought myself a new dress, because my clothes were killing my sunburn. It is cute, the pattern isn’t my favorite but it looks cute on (patten looks like some hankies.) Have I mentioned that it is boring being at a motorcycle/ATV place? Well for me it is. Dust wants to look at all sorts of things that I could care less about. So he ended up buying  a replacement visor for his helmet and new mirrors for the bike. Oh and the oil change as they didn’t have time for the valve job. Which means that most likely Dustin will do that part himself.

The Pain…,

July 25, 2008

I took the girls swimming yesterday, my first time wanting to go swimming in a long time. (We have a lake in our little town). I stayed out way to long, I forgot how easy I burn. I haven’t had a burn in like 3 or4 years and then not as bad as the one I have now. We swam for about an hour and a  half. I am in so much pain right now it is horrible. I have a picture of my back I am going to put on here, but I have to wait because it is on the cell phones. (Dustin has my cell right now, because his quit taking a charge, and the girls are still sleeping – it is on both Heaven’s and Dustin’s phone.) It was so much fun getting the burn, not so much fun with the burn. The absolute worst part? I was wearing waterbabies SPF 50. I used to buy the heavier stuff but I can’t find it anymore. I think it was found to be unsafe?

I weigh 172 pounds this morning. That part is just way awesome! I hear Dustin so I am gonna go…
