Cracked glass and broken nails

I'm been pretty MIA so this is all going to be disjointed and just a bunch of bits and pieces of stuff that's been up.


First, I've been thinking on this blog a good bit.  Trying to figure out what to do.  If I need to focus on something or if just writing whatever is going alright.  And I don't really know.  So I figure I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and figure it out later.  I have enough to try to figure out without throwing this into the mix.  It seems to be going ok given my stats even on days when I haven't written anything in a week or more.  So, yeah, for now...  this is what it is and I'm ok with that


I had a pretty good health scare this week.  For those who know me... and of course none of you do, but IF you did you would know it takes a LOT for me to break down and go to the doctor.  I'm not a fan of doctors.  I feel they are just big pushers for big bad pharmaceuticals.  Monday was day 2 of my time of the month.  Hence forth it's going to be referred to as being broken.  That's what my time of the month is called in our house.  It started out when my guy said to me once "Are you still broken?"  And it stuck.   When I'm being overly difficult, I hear "Are you going to break soon?" and so it is.  Anyway, I broke Sunday morning.  On Monday I started getting cramps.  Just like everyone, I always get cramps, but for the prior two months they were a bit...  different.  Usually they've been staved off with Tylenol.  But on Monday, they came on and they hit hard.  Tylenol didn't touch them.  I couldn't stand up.  I couldn't sit down, I couldn't do business in the bathroom without crying.  I left work early, called the doctor and made an appointment for March 1st, 5 days before I'm scheduled to break again.  By the time my husband and I got home I walked to the house completely doubled over in pain.  I've never experienced pain like that.  Ever.  It was excruciating and terrifying.  The nurse on the phone said that if a hot bath and a heating pad didn't help the pain to go to the hospital.  I just happened to have some hefty pain pills at home as well, so I took one of those took my bath and went to bed with my heating pad.  When I woke up at 3am, I was still pretty sore, but better.  I've just been mildly sore since then, which I think is from the trauma of so much pain Monday.  So we'll see what happens at the doctor's appointment.  I hope and pray to God that it's nothing serious.  I'm still pretty terrified.


I have discovered, or I guess rediscovered, a passion of my former years.  Reading.  I'm loving it.  You would think that leading an online book club would have reignited  the obsession before now, but nope.  But I found something that did.  My Kindle.  Holy heck do I love that thing.  I have read 7 books since the middle of December.  SEVEN.  I used to read so very much.  But then college and then working and just life took over and the reading stopped.  Now I can't imagine not reading whenever I have the chance.


I found out recently that a girl I went to high school with has a huge brain tumor and has had four surgeries.  It came out of nowhere.  One day she got a headache.   Later that night she was light-headed and dizzy.  Next thing she knew she was undergoing surgeries for a massive tumor.  There is going to be a benefit for her the 27th of this month and I'm making an afghan for the silent auction.  I totally need to get my butt in gear on it, too.  I only have a little over two weeks left to get it done.


Lastly, I have to say something I have a very strong opinion on.  I'm sure it's because of my job that I have this opinion, but I just have to say it.  If you have SafeAuto...  you suck.  For so many reasons that I'll get into at some time or another.  But if all you can afford to carry on your vehicle are minimum limits....  then you can't afford to drive a car.  And everyone should be terrified to drive around you.  You are an irresponsible selfish slug.  Yeah.  That's right.   No offense.


So anyway...  to wrap up...   I'm wishy-washy on the blog, I could possibly be dying, I love to read, am fairly handy with a crochet hook and I hate you if you have SafeAuto.  Yup.  That's it.  In a nutshell.

I'll be back sooner than I have been lately.   Promise.  SMOOCHES!!

Yay, you are alive!

Boo, you may be dying!

Yay, for reading and crocheting!

Boo, for Safe Auto! (I have no idea what this is, but Boo anyway)

That sucks about the cramps hon. I used to cramp like that. It was horrific. I would think I was dying every month. But after I had major surgery that inlcuded a DNC, no more cramping. So I hope that it is something relatively minor. Sorry!!

I love that you call it Being Broken. I like to use the word Sloughing. IT just sounds nasty. hehe!

I was just thinking about you today - glad to "see" you. Please to not be dying, m'kay?

Your comment and RB's comment and dear Chibi, of course spurred me on to write again. I'll have to write more. But yes, I am alive. For now at least. :)

Hahahah dude, you are hysterical. I LOVE that you call it being broken ... I might have to adopt that into my life.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well! I absolutely know having cramps become the worst pain of your life. About a year ago this time I was dealing with something similar and it was hard to deal with, but sometimes people just don't get it! They think it's just normal cramps.

Plus, I hate doctor's too. But don't die on my okay? 'Cause I kinda adore you.

And I've been really bad about my blog lately too. I switched from a regular wordpress account to a domain and lost all my stuff in the process (BOO) and haven't had time to update everyone on the move since the site isn't totally complete yet... but I'm having a similar struggle. I think writing about whatever comes to mind is going to be my go to.

I am glad to see you alive and writing though! Talk to you soon! Muah!

Sorry things have been so rough for you. I hope you feel better soon.

I hope that you're feeling better. :( Both physically and emotionally. You should totally update us on some of the books that have gotten you reading again- I keep starting books and then ADD-ing to the point where I've got about 4 going right now. D'oh!

Hoping that all is well and you're feeling much better! Looking forward to the next post! Know that you are loved and adored!
