Some of you may already know, but I have been pretty quiet thus far. It is painful but now is the time I feel I must share. It has been almost a month now that my beloved Alli has taken a leave of absence. When we were vising my brother for his Baptism Alli decided to wander. She is a girl with a driving need to travel. She has taken off before only to be back in a matter of minutes/hours and in some cases days. She always managed to find her way back to us. We have combed the area. We have driven around looking for her and even notified animal controls in 2 different counties. Of course all this was to no avail.
Alli is gone and I don't see her coming back anytime soon.We miss you, you big goober.
I hope one day you find it in your heart to come back to us. We are your family and we love you very much.
On a good note, I went to the local Humane Society (looking for Alli) and found a dog that is already part of our family. I knew it the minute I met him. He is so cute. I talked to the hubby and I even brought him over there so they could meet. Now mind you I am technically NOT a dog person. I like other people's dogs and I would really like a "pocket" dog. But I totally prefer cats. Alli was a good dog to have around. She was so protective of her people and she was fun to play with. I miss the old dork. Since I have an acre of fenced in yard, I decided that this homeless pup needs to come live with us. They named him Chance, but I am going to call him Pedro...
If or when Alli ever does come back, we will welcome her home with open arms and enjoy having 2 dogs.

Oh and on an almost unrelated subject, I totally have the hots for Cesar Millan... You know, the dog whisperer. Yeah, I would totally go there... Yeah so what... At least I know what I like...

I got a biopsy of the mole on my face. Now I am walking around with blue stitches in my face. Attractive to say the least. I will post pics as soon as my son takes some of it. I wore a blue shirt today so at least I match. I will get those results on Monday (hopefully sooner).
You know, I went in for a pap on March 31st and have seen more Dr.s who are poking, prodding, squishing and taking my blood than I ever have in my whole entire life. Do they not understand that I am well, I am not a sick person. There is NOTHING wrong with me. I have 3 more Dr.s appointments before I can call it quits. Hopefully NO MORE after these. I hate going to the Dr. I hate being in their offices with their bad muzak. I hate sitting next to Coughy McSnifflebottoms. Not to mention all the co-pays...

*Quickie Update*

My sweet handsome hubby is home, life is good.

Good news! Can we all say party at my place!?
Dr. Jackson called and said that she had called the pathologist directly because she was concerned about my biopsy and asked if there was any way to move me up to the top of the list. Well, the pathologist had just finished with mine and told the Dr. that it is "Benign Fibrocystic Calcifications". Which means I am fine!!! I am more than fine! I am wonderful today. Thanks for all the well wishes and good Karma.
I don't have to go back there for 6 months! WoooHoooo!!!!

*Quickie Update*

Hubby is still in Panama. Had an oxygen saturation sleep study done last night. Had my biopsy a day early and got it over with this morning. My boob looks like hell and it won't stop bleeding but all in all everything is good. They weren't able to get it all so they will test what they have and if it's benign they will leave it alone. So I don't think I will have to do that again...
Thanks for all the good Karma and prayers, I know you guys love me and that means a lot.

I get it O.K.!
I had one last Wednesday. Then on Thursday I get a call that they needed me to come back in. O.K. so I went back in yesterday. They Xeroxed me again and put me in a little waiting room. Whew glad that's over. Then the tech pokes her head around the corner and says the radiologist wants another view and to step back in to the torture chamber, err, I mean the imaging room. So they squash it 3 more ways that I didn't even know was humanly possible. Then I was sent back to sit some more. Well long story short (if that is ever possible with me) I have to go back Thursday for a biopsy. Do they not understand that I just did a 5K on Saturday for breast cancer, therefor I am immune.... O.K. well, it was worth a shot. I don't think it's anything and I'm sure when they get the results back they will tell me the same. Oh and it doesn't help that the Hubby is out of the country until Monday. I do O.K. when he is out of town but I wouldn't mind if he gave me a call.

I did my first ever 5K!!!
We raised money for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure breast cancer research foundation.
We had the option to run "In Memory of or In Celebration of"
Of course I picked my Luis Fernandito. I know it wasn't cancer, but I do a lot in my life in his memory.
The hubby ran in memory of his father who passed away from colon cancer when my hubby was only 6 months old.
Ruby was even there!!! How cool is that?
This is T-Mom she is now a colon cancer survivor... She was also our team captain.
I don't get very many pics of me so of course I am posting them all...
This was my view nearing the end of it.
There were lots and lots and lots of people...
It was a good morning!

I don't think I have ever been so happy to see Tuesday arrive. Yesterday was such a Monday. The kids are on spring break and they are both grounded, ugh! I got to work late. When I got here my computer could not connect to the network. It didn't get fixed until around 11:00. We had bad weather all day. The tornado sirens went off just as I was getting out of here to head home. I hate driving in the rain. It was raining so hard I couldn't see the road in front of me yet some jackass decided that they just had to ride my bumper for the 10 mile stretch of desolate back road all the way home. I couldn't pull over because both sides of the road were flooded. I came to a near complete stop and they still wouldn't go around me. I really hate people like that. I didn't even get to eat dinner last night. I have been exhausted lately and I just put my jammies on and went to bed. I never did get to see the hubby. The kids loved on me for a minute. That's always nice. Hope you all are having a great Tuesday!

Happy Easter!

Friday, April 10, 2009


Thank God it's Friday. We have had an auditor in here all week. We have had 4 since November. I guess that's what happens when people rob you of hundreds of thousands of dollars. I know I don't do anything wrong, but it makes me look at the girls I work with and wonder what they are up to. I highly doubt any of them would do anything. But then again the girls who took from us before seemed to be on the up and up. the audit went well and I'm not worried. I just hate to have to be on my toes. Sometimes I just want to sit back, chill and do my work.
A very strange thing happened to the hubby and I yesterday. We were on our way out and he asked me to remind him to go to the auto parts store on our way home. I told him there was no hurry so why don't we just pop in there on our way. We pulled in and he got out of the car. As soon as he stood up a woman got out of the SUV next to us and gave him a big hug. That was odd. He motioned to me to get out and meet her. It just so happens it was a woman that he went to school with that was a good friend of his sister. In fact he went to the prom with her. That was cool. We are going to their place on Saturday for a cookout. We met her husband and he was very handsome. We also got to meet their 3 children. That was just by chance. After we parted ways I called my sister in law and told her all about it. She said that she had just talked to this lady the night before. Wow! I love when good things happen. Hope you all have a perfectly awesome weekend!

UM, EW...

I just walked in to one of my attorney's office and it smelled like fart, ugh!



O.K. First off I finally got my appointment to get my boobs Xeroxed (yay me!) on the 15th. O.K. I just got a call from my Dr.s office.... Let me preface this by saying they revamped the insurance at the hospital where the hubby works and although the copay is lower it is more red tape... With that said.
They called and told me they can't refer me to the specialists that I need. WTF?! My obgyn is considered a specialist and I need to get referrals from my primary care physician. THEY ARE MY PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIANS!!! I have no other reason to ever grace the doors of a Dr.s office other than when I go in for my yearly. So what am I supposed to do now? Get a "primary care physician" and walk in the door and say,"you don't know me and I really don't need you but please give me a referral to the Cardiologist that I have been seeing for 2 years and a surgeon.." Yeah that sounds really smart now doesn't it. I called my hubby and he said he has a list of Dr.s that are on an approved list (WTF is that?!). So of course I asked him to look at the list and pick one. He told me,"we can do it together..." which is guy speak for I will procrastinate so long that you will be SOL. Ugh!
If this is what "universal health care" is going to look like, I don't want any part of it.
