31st-Aug-2008 06:24 pm - My recovery so far...
The past 24 hours have been hell. Yesterday morning I woke up nasesous and had a fever. My mom and brother both tended to me, making me soup and bringing me ice cream. I felt a little better. Then I took a nap and I woke up and my mouth hurt like hell and the fever got worse. I texted Amber who thankfully told me it sounded like I had an infection and to call the emergency number. If I didn't tell her what was going on, I don't know where I would be right now.

So I called the doctor and he called in a prescription for some Penicillin and I had to go to my mom's house since my brother up and left for the weekend. I am not too happy with him right now. I called my dad and left him a voicemail bawling about how I didn't want to go to my mom's house, but I had since my brother left and how I wish he (my dad) was home to take care of me.

As if things couldn't get worse, I started my period. So with the mouth pain, came the cramps. The antibiotics are definitely helping. I started swishing with saltwater and that's helping too.

I'm home now. I have so much stuff to do before going back to work this week. I'm gonna try to eat some real food tonight (a chopped up hot dog). I had some eggs for breakfast and that went okay. I hate this.


P.S. My TV season starts tomorrow!!
29th-Aug-2008 07:40 am - Day 1
It's only almost 8 am and I am already anticipating a long day. I figured I'd get through this easily because of my new DVR. Too bad something is wrong with and they have to come out Monday and fix it. My shows skip really badly when I watch them. So now I just have my TV on DVD, which I kinda wore out and my laptop.

The surgery itself wasn't bad. It took about an hour and 45 mins. My teeth were really impacted, so that's why I was back there so long. They wheeled me into a recovery room and tried to kill me with Sierra Mist. She was helping me drink it, and I couldn't feel it right until it hit my throat so I was coughing and choking. One thing that confused was how old his assistants were. He was maybe in his 50's and his assitants were late 60's/early 70's! He prescribed me Vicodin and I took 3 of them yesterday. They are a God send, but today I am gonna try to rely on ice and ibuprofen.

There was a lot of blood yesterday. When I went to the store to get my prescription filled, I was bleeding on the counter and the lady looked disgusted and told my mom she could take me home and she could pick them up. I was embarrassed/annoyed. I have no more gauze left, and I don't want to bite down on tea bags. Hopefully their isn't enough blood for me to have to do that.

I am soooo hungry. I am craving every restaurant by my house: Burger King, Long John Silver's, White Castle, McDonald's, Taco Bell, Chipotle, etc. Right now I have some soup cooling down on the stove. I am so over pudding, jello and applesauce.

And the swelling, it isn't too bad. I kinda look like a tamer Kanye West when he has his jaw wired shut.

Other than that, it's not half as bad as I thought it would be. Time to start my day of watching daytime TV (yuck).

Ok peeps! I'm off to get my wisdom teeth pulled. Wish me luck!

25th-Aug-2008 12:05 am - 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics
So sad it's over. Soo many great memories. I've officially decided I am going to London in 2012, and opened a new savings account so I can save. My extra curriculars activities are gonna be basically non existent, but it'll be worth it.

23rd-Aug-2008 10:13 am - Obama/Biden '08
So it's official. I got my text message at 3:22 AM:

Barack has chosen Senator Joe Biden to be our VP nominee...

Not sure how I feel about that, but we'll see.

So I no longer believe in love...

My coworker is supposed to be married two weeks from Saturday. She goes to get her marriage license yesterday and her fiancee is not there. She calls and asks if he's alright. He tells her he's in the middle of something and will call her back. She texts him because he was for a few days and she wants to make sure he's okay. He texts her back: I can't believe you're asking me this after the message I texted you this morning. She didn't get one, but she looks through her old messages and sees one she skipped. It read:

"I can't go through with it right now. Send me a bill of what you spent and I'll pay you back."

She calls him back, pissed, but she pretends she didn't get it. She wanted to hear the words come out of his mouth. He said he'd call her back, but instead the coward resent the text message.

This is all coming from a Marine, someone who is supposed to be brave, but doesn't have he nerve or the dissency to tell the woman he supposedly loves that he doesn't want to marry her.


My heart breaks for her.

omg pam
The day started off like none other... with the exception of me being a year older. Anyway, I went to lunch, at my sandwich and checked my celebrity gossip. After I got back to work, I found a missed call from a 353 area code. They left a voicemail and I check it. "Who was it?" you ask? It was some lady named Melody from L.A. She works for a show called "Most Daring" where they show videos of people in trouble, like being robbed or car crashes. She wants me to appear on the show to talk about the bus attack I witnessed in May. I KNOW!!!

On one hand I want to talk about it, to tell my side of the story. So many news outlets that picked up the story wondered why no one did anything and I want to tell why. But on the other hand, I want to put it behind me. But I did leave her a voicemail to call me back and we'll see where this goes...

13th-Aug-2008 06:53 pm - HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
Oooh presents!!

Wow, I'm 24 years old.

For the first time since I've been employed, this is the first time that I've had to work on my birthday. At first I thought I was gonna regret it, but it actually turned out to rank up there pretty high with the best birthday I've had.

It was so laid back. My coworker Christine baked me a strawberry cake. It's one of the best cakes ever and I asked for it way back in February.

My manager took me out to lunch. We went to Cap City (a Cameron Mitchell restaurant-- kinda fancy) and I had the Romano Crusted Chicken and it was sooo good. And I got a free birthday dessert. I chose the upside down banana cream pie. I like banana cream pie when it's right side up, so I figured upside down shouldn't be so bad.

When I got back to the office, my sister, Jo had flowers and a basket of Cheryl & Co cookies (my favorite!!) delivered to me. Hands down my favorite gift of the day. I'm enjoying a yummy brownie now, with a cut out on deck ;) My manager made me a card and everyone in the office signed it. I love my job.

My mom got me season 2 of Girlfriends on DVD (it's a guilty pleasure). I plan on watching that while recouping from my teeth surgery.

And my other coworker/friend Ashley gave me a People magazine with Brad and Angelina on it. It's used, but I wanted it for the Build a Bear coupon inside (I want to get another one for my birthday like I did last year). We just decided to make it one of my presents.

Now the rest of my evening consists of watching the Olympics (I have Olympic fever!) and eating my leftovers. Hopefully I'll do something this weekend.

Thanks for the birthday texts and facebook posts!

August 28th I have to get 4 wisdom teeth pulled. I had my eval today and it was all of minutes and cost me $90. Added on to the 20% I have to pay for the actual surgery, my grand total is $450. I know it could be much worse (without insurance it's $2250), but hot damn the only thing I can do with these next 2 paychecks is pay my bills. Thank Heathus for Sam's Club or else I would starve. I do love that my first question to the doctor was if he was gonna prescribe me anything for the pain. He probably thought I was just in this for the meds...

Gotta go back to work now. Just wanted to update on that since I won't be home until late tonight.

Where the hell have I been? You'd think with such a long hiatus, I'd have some exciting tales. Sadly, I do not.

I have been looking for a part time job. Times have gotten really hard. But I only want to work 3 nights a week, no weekends, and holidays off. I've gotten really spoiled with this 8-5 job.

Just got back from the Dark Knight. I feel like I'm the only person left in the world that hasn't seen. It was AWESOME. Did it live up to the momumental hype? Kind of. But it wasn't epic. The Joker definitely was. I wish he was in every single scene. Next I want to see it in IMAX. At the end of the movie, for a split second, I forgot Heath died and I was so excited to see his next role.

I went to the fair yesterday with my niece, brother, mom and her lesbian lover. We stayed for about 5 hours and it was sooo hot. But ny niece had a great time. It was so cute when she had to share her seat on the ride with other kids. We weren't allowed on it, but we were waving to her and she was telling the other kids: "That's Anna and that's my daddy." And she loved the giant slide. That's one of my favorites, but getting up the stairs is a bitch. That was the first time I've been in a long time and I forgot how fun it is.

My birthday is in 10 days. 24, wow. There are so many things that haven't happened that I thought would. If it was going according to plan, I should be planning my wedding that's supposed to happen next year. The bad thing about plans: you feel like a failure when it doesn't go accordingly.

Now I have to get prepared for another work week. After that, I am reading all The Dark Knight articles I've be avoiding so I wouldn't be spoiled. Later, folks!
