I'm BACK!!! :)

Ok we are back in business. We finally got internet, and school is OUT!!! I really can't remember what I was going to blog about back when I couldn't do it easily... So, this will probably be another mixed bag of stuff... and then I will be back on track.

I think I mentioned the gastric bypass last time, I am still waiting to hear from the surgeon's office to schedule my 1st appointment. Once I meet with him or her, I will then have to have a psychological and meet with a nutritionist. I have to ( as of now, praying its only 3) meet up with my Internist once a month for 6 months to document weight loss attempts. The Internist seems to think I might could have the surgery by fall. But I am praying for Christmas.

In other news I am happy to say I am moving back down to 1st grade!!!! I am so excited and a weight called TVASS has been lifted.

Our house... It seems as though it will never sell. Our dang master bath is small... I did sacrifice when I bought, because the rest of the house was so cute and great for entertaining. Well it seems that in this market of a forclosure on every corner, buyers seem to think they will find EVERYTHING they want in one house. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see what exactly these people buy when they pass over our house. It would help me feel better about the situation, I think. We are coming up on 1 year on the market... Really?!?!? As much as I would love to move, I love my house... small bathroom and all. But, my fear is that waiting longer will only make it worse when we go to sell in later. We are already listed less than what I originally paid for it. In a few years who knows where the property value will be? :(

So, we redid our front flower bed this weekend, and I have decided to redo our laundry room... easy, cheap, and fun. Our laundry room is not much bigger than the wash and dryer themselves, so we are talking a small area. I have picked out a paint color, a new light fixture and some extra shelving. I think I will be able to do everything I want to do for about $150.

I think that is all for now...  Hope you all are doing well! I am playing catch up on reading blogs :)

I would like to start this post with the  bad & ugly...  Then I will get to the good. :)
The cable/ internet people have already messed up and I don't even have internet yet. Well, apparently the nice man I talked to over a week and 1/2 ago was new or just a bad employee. I still have no stuff to hook up, in fact after calling today, guess what.... HE DIDN'T PUT IN THE ORDER!!! Come to find out, someone will have to come out and install because we don't have a signal coming to the house. But, the nice man I talked to today was having to cancel the other account that other guy set up before he could get it started correctly. Of course my break was over and I had to get back to class... and this helpful guy was supposed to call me back.... Good thing I didn't hold my breath. Still no call back and I am just beginning to think we will never have internet again!!!

Now on to the good. I have taken charge of the weight issues I have always had. I have started my monthly weight loss attempts and all of my doctors are supportive and ready to get me to the surgery. SO, by Christmas I might be well on my way (have had the sleeve type of gastric bypass surgery) to a healthier self. I am really motivated and excited where this journey has now taken me.

So, as much as I thought I would have internet and be able to get caught up and such, that is now on the back burner again until someone with a brain gets in touch with me and sets up an appointment.... Heck at this rate I might have my surgery before I get internet. haha Have a great weekend!

Ok, it has been a LONG time since I have posted. I didn't really have time, or anything good to say there for a while because I was so focused on state testing, selling my house, and figuring out what the heck was wrong with me.  Since my last few posts, testing is OVA!!! I have had my sonohysterogram, didn't really find much of anything... but there is a story and the house is more of the same.

I do want to thank Lucky as Sunshine for the blogger award. I feel terrible that he gave it to me so long ago and I am just now able to thank her properly. But to add to my chaos, the Internet we have been using is no longer available, and we are patiently (NOT) for xfinity to mail our new stuff so I will be back up and running! (side note where would we be today without all this technology) I do have the app for my phone but jeeze it hardly ever works correctly and my eyes are getting worse for trying to see the tiny typing.

Anyway the blogger award post will be next when I am not rushed at work to get something down.. I want to make it meaningful :)

So, school is out for summer in 9 days.. 10 if you count today. Up until today I have counted the day but now, it can be single digits so even though today is not over, there are 9 days left.  WOO HOO!!!

I had my SHG (is that the abbreviation?) on Thursday. I took the whole day off. The appointment was supposed to be at 10:15. The office called at 9:00 to say the ultrasound tech called in sick. The only appointment that day was at the other office at 3:15. I took it only to find that a close friend (who is a Dr. in my practice) would be doing the test. WHAT????? I wasn't sure that this was ok, but I had taken the day off and wanted answers... the stuff I have been dealing with is HORRENDOUS! So I met my bff for lunch so she could talk me into this being ok. I mean, I have known this guy since college, he married a sorority sister, delivered my bff's twins, it would be ok... but the anxiety involved could overcome me. About an hour before the appointment he had his nurse call to make sure I was ok with him doing the test.  At this point, I am desperate for answers so, I went on with it. Well, it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I mean if my Dr. can't do it at least I know him and he will shoot me straight. TMI alert: The only VERY awkward part was when the saline... came out. They lie when they tell you it will drip out. I felt like (what I can imagine) my water broke all over his feet. But they only saw one spot and it could have possibly been the catheter. But the kicker was they put me on birth control to help with the irregular stuff going on. I have mixed feelings. I mean for almost 3 years it hasn't worked even with meds, shots, iui so why not get on bc so that I have a normal cycle... but then there is that little voice inside saying well now you will never know. But for now I am ok with it... I think.

Jeeze my break goes by so fast when I need longer. I have to go for now, hopefully my internet will be up and running in the next day or so so I can update more and so my blogger award post.
