My doctors appt.s

I FINALLY made all my doctors appts that I have been needing to make for awhile now.
With all the budget cuts going on in schools, I just got a bit worried I might loose my job.
Some people are saying it will not happen, but you never know. So I just started making
those appt.s in case I loose my insurance.
I went for my blood work, xray and today was my Cardiologist appt. I have had chest pains,
and my left arm goes numb and tingly for over 10 years. I have gone to the ER numerous
times thinking heart prob.s and them just telling me its my acid reflux. Could be, who knows,
all they ever did was check my blood pressure and I think once or twice xrays of my chest.
That does no good. Well I went to my primary care doc telling her this problem (haven't been
to any doc since Wyatt was born almost 9 years ago) and she said she would feel better to send
me to cardio doc JUST IN CASE. Well Dr. Gowda (short for Lingegowda or somethin like that)
was very nice and after doing an ekg and listening to my heart and all that good stuff, said everything looks and sounds good, but with me being 40 (march 2) and I guess my weight and family history, he wants to do other tests. So this Monday (hopefully, if the refferal goes thru)
I will be going for my Stress Test, and the 23rd for my ECHO test, and then back to see him on the 29th. More than likely it is my GERD, BUT my issue is why do I get these arm pains, and why does my arm go numb and tingly? No one (hospitals) have ever been able to explain that.
Better safe than sorry.
NEXT, tomorrow-1-16-09, Mammogram, maybe they will say I need a breast reduction.
crossing fingers so hard.
NEXT, is my Sleep doctor appt. on Tuesday the 20th. This is for my BAD snoring and sleep apnea issues.
NEXT, Vein doctor on the 26th, I have a really bad vericose vein that has been causing lots of
problems for a SUPER long time.
Next, Eye doctor, Feb. 3,(Wyatt's is the same time) my eyes are getting so bad. My glasses are great, but not my vision.
Next, Gynocologist, Feb. 12th (it was for Jan. 28th but after I got my packet in the mail, I found out they have a new office in Riverview right here on Big Bend, so I changed to that office) to hopefully get a hysterectomy.
I still have to make my dentist appt. I found one on Big Bend that takes my insurance but I have
to call the insurance and get this place on their roster and that will take about a month. I wanted to do it today, but just no time. Probably wont be able to do it tomorrow either. Maybe Monday after my stress test.

My dad has surgery on his neck next week. Not sure what it is called, but if you could keep him
in your thoughts and prayers, we would all be grateful.
I think that is it for now. I will try to get over to my new blog (project 365kit) to post my pictures for the 365 project.
Have a good night all.
It is a cold outside. 50 right now, and tomorrow will be 61 with 36 tomorrow night. brrrrrr.

365 project and a giveaway

Check out this great blog.
She has a contest going on and she will be giving away one of these awesome kits.
So go on over and check it out. She will definately go in my blog list, blog reader and
in my favorites.
If you have not heard about this great kit, you have got to check it out. Everyone
is talking about it and wanting it. Including ME. Some have gotten theirs already,
some are patiently (or not so patiently) waiting on theirs. Some are even on backorder
and some have found out they are not getting one after thinking they are. BUMMER.
If you haven't gotten one and probably will not be getting one, you should still do this
project. It will be great. You just take a picture a day and do a little journaling about
that picture. I take more than one pic but will use just one for this project and then try
to HOPEFULLY do a 2 page layout a week or month with the rest. Anyhow, others can
probably explain the kit better than I can. Head on over to Creating Keepsakes site
or Becky Higgins site or just google project 365 and you will find TONS of info on it.

Something funny my son just said

I just posted the thing about twilight and Wyatt says, "Mom, I think you
should put some pictures on your blob. You know that thing you do with
your blob, that thing offline you do?". He always says offline instead of online.
And he thinks this is called a blob. too cute. I got a couple pics of him after he
said it and Donny and I laughed so hard.

new Twilight email

just received this in my inbox. Too cool. Can't wait.

Dear Twilight Fans, I'm very happy to announce that Taylor Lautner will be playing Jacob Black in NEW MOON, and that he's doing so with the enthusiastic support of Summit Entertainment, the producers, and Stephenie Meyer. The characters in Stephenie's books go through extraordinary changes of circumstance and also appearance; so it is not surprising that there has been speculation about whether the same actor would portray a character who changes in so many surprising ways throughout the series. But it was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob, and that the books would be best served by the actor who is emotionally right for the part. I think that fans of TWILIGHT, the book and the movie, will be surprised by the Jacob Black that Taylor will bring to the screen in NEW MOON; and I'm looking forward to working with him and the rest of the cast in realizing the film. Very Best, Chris Weitz

Just hit 2000 hits on my blog

Wish I had some goodies to give away, but right now nothing. It would probably take me a month just to make it in my room to find something. It's a disaster. Anyone wanna come over
and organize it for me? LOL. Yeah didn't think so. Maybe I should post a pic of it. hmmm, lets see if I have that pic off my camera yet. Had to use my table for our Christmas party so i haven't put it back up and put my stuff back on it yet. So all that on the floor usually sits on my table that is leaning against the one desk. I know it's pathetic. YUK
All junk papers from the kitchen and everywhere else in the house ends up in here.

Taste of home crock pot meals

I bought a slow cooker recipe book a while back in the check out line at the
grocery store. Some of the recipe's look so good but I haven't tried any yet.
In the back of the book is a page that says to go here to get 50 more recipes.
You have to enter in your email addie to get it. I love my crock/slow cooker.

Did you get your project 365 kit?

Hope everyone is able to get a kit. It is so exciting. A friend is going to order me one when she orders herself a kit. Good luck Lynn. If I don't happen to get one, I am still going to do this somehow.
I have taken a pic everday starting with this past Sunday. Here is what I am using so far.
First pic is for the 28th of Wyatt and Donny (daddy) looking at Donny's laptop.

The 29th. Our baby Cameleon just died and Wyatt and Haylee
are buring it in the front yard by the plant.

30th, STILL working on a gift. Man I look yuk. If you know me,
you know I HATE getting my pic taken, So posting that pic is
a major thing for me. Even when I look my best, I still look like
crap, so this is REALLY bad. Oh well, this is me.

31st-My hubby (Donny) and myself on New Year's Eve in front of
the tree. YUK again. This is about as good as I can look. pathetic.

And this pic is going to be for the 31st and the 1st.
I might resize it to be small or cut it in half and put
it for both days. Not sure, until I get the kit.

What have you taken pics of so far?

Happy New Year to everyone out there

Hope everyone has a wonderful 2009.
Did everyone have a great night? Party too much,
drink too much? LOL. We had some family and friends
over but they all left around 9:30-10 so they could get
off the roads before too many drunks were out. Good idea.
Hope everyone was safe.
