YEAH Baby, got me my Twilight 3 disc movie tonight

Donny gave me $20 the other day to get my movie Twilight but no one had it (the 3 diff walmarts we went to), so I was NOT gonna settle for the plain ole 1 disc. LOL. A few lady's at
work said that Super Target had them. So I called this eve and the lady said they had over 2 hundred of the 3 disc movies and they were still $17.99. So off we went (the kids and myself),
while Donny went on a run. I am so happy to have it. And it has a digital copy on it also. I have never used the digital copies other movies came with, but I am sure I will download this one.
I will watch it when I go to bed. Will probably fall asleep in the middle, but HEY it is mine and I
can watch it whenever me wants. Who else has gotten their copies, or who has NOT gotten theirs? Hurry on over to super Target on Bloomingdale Ave. (that is if you live in this area) and get yours. Or call your Target and ask if they have it.
Sweet Dreams of Edward.

Happy Anniversary to Me and Donny

Today is our 9th anniversary. We both FORGOT. I was rocking Michael to sleep at school today around 12:30 and I remembered. So I grabbed my phone from its location (hehe) and sent him a text. Sorry I forgot babe. Happy Anniversary. I love you. kissie kissie. lol.
Anyhow, we actually celebrated it this past Saturday evening. He took me to a GREAT Japanese restuarant off Lumsden and Kings in that shopping center by the kids consignment shop. There is also a pub next to it. Across the street is O'briens I think. It was WONDERFUL. The only other time I had ever been to a J restaurant, I did NOT like it at all. But it was awesome. I had Tampa Roll, and California Roll, Shrimp Tempura, and some Beef something. Can't remember the name. Man O man O man it was soo good. The waitress came by and asked me what was wrong and did I not like the food cause I hardly ate. I told her I did and I am on weight watchers. I would eat it all if I could. Oh also had a salad with some kinda weird dressing, but it was good, and MeSo soup. YUM. So with the salad, soup, T and C rolls and the shrimp Tempura and then the beef stuff, I was SO stuffed after. We had lots of leftovers and had it for 2 days. LOL. YUM. We also went to the mall after so I could walk (supposed to walk after the vein surgery) off the food and get my walking in. We weren't there a long time, but did go to Sears and he got a couple things CHEAP (shirts) and me a jacket (CHEAP). They had some good sales going on. Oh and got a couple pillows that were buy one get one free. Our pillows were looking a bit YUK. No stuffing in them. LOL.
Anyhoo, here are my flowers he brought me home and the card is beautiful. Of course I didn't get him a card. But that's ok, our 11 year first date anniversary was Valentines day and I got him one but he forgot mine. We both are sooo forgetful.

Wyatt's last Shriners appt. on March 10th

Everything is looking really good. There is still a small dense area, but its not bad.

Wyatt had to tell the doc that he has NOT been wearing his braces at night (he doesn't

like them and the way they feel) and he cheats alot and uses his walker when he is home and

does a speedy gonzalez act with it. He always ends up walking or hopping really fast and just

not doing what he should be doing. It has been like 2 1/2 years being in the wheelchair and he

is just sick and tired, tired and sick of the thing. It is so hard for him, knowing he can walk with

no problem and NOT being able to. He is miserable. When he went to his appt. in December, the

doc told him if he continues to do what he should he might possibly be out of the wheelchair by Dec. of 2009. Well this last appt. she said the xrays looks so good and if he will PLEASE use his wheelchair more, and WEAR his braces (she even said dont wear them 12 hours, just say from 10pm-6am) and not walk, he will be out of his wheelchair come his next appt. in June. She also

said, from how good the Xrays look, if he had been wearing his braces and not walking/cheating,

he could have left the wheelchair and walker at the hospital and gone home and started walking again (no running though for a lot longer). That kind of upset him, but its his own fault for not doing what he should. He knows what he should do and chooses not to. Anyhoo, hopefully by

June, he just might be out of the wheelchair. So maybe next year in 3rd grade, he will no longer have to use the elevator at school (the new building should be done at school by then, so the portables will be GONE).

My VEIN Surgery from Friday 3-20-09

Well this past Friday was the first of my 3 vein surgeries.
If you have never had one done, it is pretty weird. After
I got there they had me undress (got to leave on bra and shirt)
and put on a pair of their tiny (for my big butt anyhow) almost
g-string like paper panties. LOL. And I had to lay on bed with
my leg bend sideways. The doc comes in and they start sticking
my with a needle all over my leg. I guess this was to give me
pain/numbing meds. The sticks stung but the one on my knee,
I thought I was gonna kick him in the face. OUCH. But that went
away pretty fast. They had to talk to me the whole time, every 30
seconds "Are you ok Christina?" "You ok?" Just to make sure I
was good and not in alot of pain or anything. I was good. Wish I had
my camera. when they got to my upper thigh, my heart started beating
super super fast. I could have started freaking out, but they said it would
stop within 1 minute. It did, so I was good. Then came the incisions,
I could feel something but not pain. Then came the catheder inserted
from what I could tell in the incision at my ankle. Now that was SUPER
weird. I could feel that going in, felt really weird. Didn't hurt, just pressure
and almost like a bug crawling thru my skin. ewwww. Then after that, (at least
I think, hard to tell since I couldn't see or feel anything), they had to give us all
sunglasses and they started using the lazer on my leg. They had to ask me every
10 seconds if I was ok. If there was ANY pain, uncomfortableness (is that a word-lol)
ANYTHING at all, I HAD to tell them. I felt pressure but no pain or burning, I did
feel like something was crawling on me, the nurse laughed and said the cord to the laser
was moving on me. That's a relief. LOL. After the laser, now the fun, cool, I am so pissed
I forgot my camera part. They (the doc and RN) started pulling the veins out thru the
many incisions. I wanted to take pics and was so mad for not bringing the camera. The doc
asked if I had a camera phone and I said DUH, so he said to give it to the nurse and she could
take a pic. Up until yesterday I could NOT see him pulling out a vein. A lady at work that can
barely see anything seen it and pointed it out to me. LOL. Everyone else just goes EWWWW.
Man o man. Anyhoo, everything turned out ok and I had to leave with this HUGE bandage,
and had to keep it on until Saturday night when I was to take a shower and let the water wash
it off. well it sure was not that easy. I had to pull at certain places. The bandages had lots of blood. YUK. I had to take 3 ibuprofins every 3 hours for 3 days. And they gave me a script for
Darvacet which I did NOT fill. There are pics below of the bandages (hard to take of myself and no one else would do it, butt heads) and of my leg after the bandages came off. When looking at my knee, it looks like I had been bitten by a shark. My sis told me to tell everyone I went to the beach and got attacked. LOL. Funny. I will look for the pic from my phone. I called the docs office a little bit ago because my ankle is still numb and I wanted to make sure that was normal.
She said not everyone gets that, but it does happen and will eventually go away. As long as it is starting to feel different and some of the feeling is coming back I should be fine. She said if I wanted to come in first thing in the morning that would be fine, I said I would wait for my appt. on Friday. The numbness in my private area and thigh has gone away now, that just leaves my inner ankle. I cant really feel anything except vibrations when I smack at it. LOL. I am still uncomfortable and sometimes certain parts of my leg hurts (mostly my inner thigh where you can tell they did the laser. Looks like I have a bad sunburn), but I am fine. I will be walking on Saturday from 5-8 so hopefully this will all be gone by then. If not, I will just take little breaks and take my ibuprofin. Oh in the pic with my bandages, at the very top you see some ink marks,
that is where he could not finish. They can only give you one bag of meds and by this time, it was empty so he could not finish. So that will have to either be done at one of the other 2 appt.s or I have to have another date set. Hopefully they can do it with one of the other 2 surgeries.

using peroxide for certain things

Got this in an email and then checked on Read for yourself

GOOD OLD PEROXIDE............................
Thought this might be of interest. I tried soaking my white shoestringsLast night. It worked remarkably well at whitening them. Peroxide vs. BleachThis was written by Becky Ransey of Indiana (a doctor's wife), and I want toShare it with you. She was over recently for coffee and smelled the bleach IWas using to clean my toilet and counter tops.. This is what she told me. :'I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little ole bottle of3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. What does bleachCost?My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and most doctorsDon't tell you about peroxide. Have you ever smelled bleach in a doctor'sOffice? NO!!! Why? Because it smells, and it is not healthy! Ask the nursesWho work in the doctor's offices, and ask them if they use bleach at home.They are wiser and know better!!Did you also know bleach was invented in the late 40's? It's chlorine,Folks! And it was used to kill our troops. Peroxide was invented during WWIIn the 20's. It was used to save and help cleanse the needs of our troopsAnd hospitals. Please think about this:1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) andHold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when IBathe.) No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without expensivePastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.2 . Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free ofGerms.3. Clean your counters and table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leaveA fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or sprayIt on the counters.4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to killSalmonella and other bacteria.5. I had fungus on my feet for years until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture ofPeroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutesSeveral times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not hea l withAny medicine but was healed by soaking in peroxide.7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keepIt in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system likeBleach or most other disinfectants will.8 Tilt your head back and S pray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixtureWhenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill theBacteria. Hold for a few minutes, and then blow your nose into a tissue.9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away,Put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutesSeveral times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50Solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will notHave the Peroxide-burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages but moreNatural highlights if your hair is a light brown, faddish, or dirty blonde.It also lightens gradually, so it's not a drastic change.11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, orOther skin infections.12. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whitesIn your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour itDirectly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinseWith cold water. Repeat if necessary.13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors. There is no smearing, which is why ILove it so much for this.I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without!With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tonsOf money in such a simple, healthy manner! '

Relay for Life-March 28th

I am so excited. Our school had a Luau to help raise money for the walk/Relay for Life
on March 28th. It was a fun night and looks like we raised a good amount. Anyhow, I got home
from that and signed on and checked my email. I had 4 emails about my donation site.
One said I was 80% of the way. The next 3 were donations. Aunt Rose (daughter Karen
recently died of cancer) gave $50, cousin Belinda (sister Karen recently died), gave $20,
and my bud Barb gave $30. Thanks so much to everyone. Oh and my mom a couple weeks
ago gave $2o (in honor of cousin Karen), and Uncle Manny gave $10 in honor of his neice Karen.
Love you all. I am going to walk as long as possible. I might walk from 1-4 and go back from 6-8.
Not sure yet. I want to walk with my team (ESE dept.) but had already signed up for the earlier
time. So not sure. But will do as much as I can. I am having one of my vein surgeries tomorrow (March 2oth) but should be perfectly fine for walking on the 28th.
Anyhow, I am now at $130.00. Is that not awesome. We are supposed to raise $200.00 each, but they said try to get at least $100. So I am there. Would still LOVE to have more than that of course.
So if ANYONE- would like to donate for this wonderful cause, please go check out my personal page and donate anything at all. Make sure you put your name in the scrollie thing with a message (ex. In Honor of Karen).
Thanks again to everyone. Love you all.
