Note To Self.....

Do NOT ever use wallpaper of any sort, whether it be actual wallpaper, or wallpaper border. It is a pain in the ass to get off!!!

I say this because I took 2 days removing the wallpaper border I had in my bedroom. I am planning on painting my room a different color soon, and had to get rid of the border. The whole time I was taking it down, I kept asking myself what on earth possessed me to put it up in the first place??? I will never do it again!! lol

Weird Dream

Ok, this dream made me think, what the hell did I have to eat/drink before going to bed last night??

I had a dream that I got a ticket to see Michael Jackson in concert at HSBC Arena. I was all excited! Yes, I am not afraid to admit that I do love MJ's music, and I always will. (That was not part of the dream, I was just stating a fact) Anywho, I get there, and I had seats that were kinda far from the stage, which was in the center of the arena instead of the one end. By the time the concert started, there were only like 50 people randomly sitting around the arena. I wondered, where the heck was everyone? But there was MJ, on stage playing the piano and singing. Playing the piano? Does he even play? So during the song, ushers are starting to tell us we can all get as close as we want, since no one else was coming. So we ended up having a private jam session with MJ. And it was fun! And somehow Janet was there all of a sudden, and I was talking to her about PH. I also realized I went to the concert without a full tank of oxygen. And then I woke up.

When I got online today, I saw one entertainment posting about the fact that today was Michael Jackson's birthday. How ironic is that???? I had no idea. Hmmmmmmmmm.

Random Postings

Well geesh, I didn't realize how much time had gone by since I last posted. Here are some random things that have happened in this past month.

I finally finished my jewelry website, and I've spread the word to alot of friends and family! And then the word got spread by them, which is nice. No orders yet, but I have a feeling I'll be bombarded for Christmas! Which can be a good thing! The site is: www.fromtheheartjewels.com. For anyone interested. :)

My Medicare nightmare took almost the entire month to get fixed. After making numerous phone calls, and stressing out completely, I found out a week ago this past Friday that my insurance reflected the fact that I'm poor and shouldn't be paying very high copays for my drugs. While I'm glad they said it's fixed, I really don't believe it's going to stay that way. We'll see what happens in a couple months!

The planet, Pluto, is no longer considered a planet. What the heck?? Poor Pluto. So what if it's called a dwarf planet, it still got demoted. I'm crushed. Pluto will always be a planet in my book.

I went to lunch with an old friend on Friday, and it was a good time! Plus she bought a couple of my necklace sets, she rocks! :) On Friday night, Mandy had a little gathering at her house, and that was a great time, too. We had all these martinis, but the one that won the best martini of the night award was the chocolate one that Joan's bf created. It was FABULOUS, made with chocolate ice cream, chocolate liquer, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I could go for one right now!!

I felt like crap alot this month. Trying to adjust to being back on my medicine full time, and other womanly crap just made me feel so blah. It really sucked. But I did get back into exercising again, and I'm so glad I did. I started feeling a bit perkier after the first couple days of walking again! I sure hope that I'll continue keeping up with it, it does make a difference in how I feel.

I "met" a kid from the PH message boards from CA, who had a double lung transplant in June. He's doing great so far, and I'm so impressed! I talk to him just about every day. He's 17, and so young, but hopefully with his new lungs, he will be able to have a great life. He says how much better he feels since the operation, because he was so sick beforehand. God does work miracles, I truly believe that!

I guess that's all for now. I'm beyond exhausted, I had a long day. I'll have to post more thoughts tomorrow. Let's just hope I have some. lol

Mittens Can't Take It Anymore!

Oooooooooooooh, the agony!

Back from the South!

I've been back since late Sunday night, but just haven't felt like posting yet. My week in the South was nice, but I have to admit to being glad to be back home. As much as my sister wants us to move down there, it's just not home to me. A nice place to visit, but not home! I much prefer WNY, with the 4 seasons, even though winter isn't one of my favorites. I can't imagine living with no snow!

Anyway, the week was busy, and a little chaotic. I felt like I needed a vacation from my vacation by the time we got back. Lisa's wedding was beautiful, though, and we all had a great time! Despite sweating in our dresses, I think we looked great!












I got to see the ocean while I was down there. Even just being there for an hour made me so happy!






















The Southern food was really good, everything is fried, just about! The variety of foods I ate included chicken & dumplings, fried okra, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits (my personal fav), chicken under a brick, an avocado dish, and many more. It was all very delicious!!

I got eaten alive by mosquitos down there, it was pretty bad. There were a few different bugs flying around that aren't up here. The June bugs (cicadas) flew around like flies, and I was a little disturbed but intrigued by them. I really can't stand June bugs, but I'd never seen them fly around as much as they did down there. And boy, and they a really clumsy bug! They fly into anything, and just continue on their way. There were also some sort of beetle looking bugs that liked to stick onto the screens. My favorite, though, were the lightning bugs. I hadn't seen them since I was little, at my Grandma's house. There were hundreds of them, though, and as dusk fell, I would just watch them from the deck. They were neat!

I am hoping that if and when I ever go back to visit my sister, it will be a bit more relaxing than the week we had down there. While it was fun, it was just tiring! There was alot of running around, but that usually happens in the last days before a wedding. It all turned out to be alot of fun, though, and I'm glad I did get to go down to celebrate her special day!
