There hasn't been too much going on lately.

My birthday was on Monday, wooohoo for 42. :)

On Saturday, I went to pick up my dress for my brother's wedding. It looks so good on. I'm so excited for him, and his wife to be. She's such a great gal. Of course - that's because she's a Long Island girl. Down to earth, has a head on her shoulders, motivated, cheerful. They say it takes one good woman, to make a man settle down, and she is the one for my bro. Thank goodness! Anyway - I have to ship my dress down to Florida, so that they can take all the dresses to be steamed/pressed before the wedding. That way, they don't get crushed during the flight.

Jen, and I, went to The Cheesecake Factory for lunch after picking up the dress.

Oh. My. Goodness. That place is wonderful! The servings were huge! Jen had the Chicken Salad sandwich, I had the Chicken and Avocado sandwich. Both were served on toasted brioche bread. We both ended up bringing home half our lunch. We did indulge and had cheesecake for dessert. Jen had the Key Lime Pie cheesecake, and I had the Italian Tiramisu cheesecake. Their iced tea was yummy. It tasted so flower'y'. Very fragrant, and refreshing.

Last Friday, I scrapped with the gals, and then we went to dinner at Charlie Brown's. It's a nice place, we had fun, and talked a lot. Only, my meal was awful. How can Chicken Parm be ruined? Well, it was..the chicken was so tough, and chewy, the mozzarella was not melted, and actually cold. Yuck. Not impressed at all. I was realy surprised, too, because I've been there before and the food was always great. Oh well.

No scrapbooking this week. I'm going to work instead. I decided to not work yesterday, because the weather was terrible. Pouring rain all morning, extremely high winds - so I sat at home. I cleaned, sat and wasted a few hours reading online.

Today, I worked. Then, I scooted over to Macy's to buy a ceramic rooster that was on sale. I had seen it last week, but, decided to wait for the sale this week. The woman that rang up the sale, wrapped the rooster in one sheet of tissue paper, and wrapped one plastic bag around it, and then put it into another bag. Well, I got home, and went to take it out of the car, and the roosters tail feathers were completely broken off in one section. I was so upset. I brought it in the house, and thought maybe I'd just crazy glue it back on, but, Jen said we should just go back and exchange it. So, we picked Joey up at school, and went back to the mall.

The women at the register were great. We got another, took care of the exchange, and then the new one was wrapped in bubble wrap and lot's of tissue paper. He made it home safely, and is currenly sitting in the center of my ceramic top stove. I'll put him in his new home later.

That's it for now. :)

blah blah


seems like I just don't bother to update here anymore.

I'm all better, not sick anymore, which is a great thing. The man was diagnosed with we've been taking care of that business. Cold turkey no soda, no caffeine, because he won't drink his coffee with any sugar substitute, and diet soda causes him to flee in disgust. /shrug. His numbers have been dropping nicely in the last week. Thanks to meds, and my careful preparation of all his meals. ;)

I lost my cell phone, for a few days. Then, I found it, at one of my accounts. It was teetering on the edge of falling underneath the inside of the card case. It must have fallen out of my coat pocket, and was laying on the very edge of theinside base. One quick bump, and it would have been gone until the card cases were pulled out of the store. Whew...thank goodness for good things.

I've been losing hours playing WoW again. :( I don't know if it's good, or bad..but, I'm doing it. I've had this night elf druid for ....oh...two years? I think. She sat at level 28 for ages. Then, I decided, why in the world am I doing that. I have NO reason to not play her. It's not like she should be placed into a tomb, never to be played again. So, out she came..and within a short time, she's already level 60, and enjoying Outlands. I love her - just absolutely my new favorite class to play. My son has major plans for her. He says I'll be his off-tank in Karazhan. haha. Currently, he is running Karazhan on a weekly basis with Team Cupcake, and his warrior absolutely 'rocks'. I think HE should enjoy Karazhan, and leave me out of it.

Anyway - it's late, almost 11:30, and I need to pack up my stuff for scrapbooking tomorrow. I'm going with my gal pals, and we're going to crop, and then go to dinner for my birthday, which is next week. Yay!

$30 @ the pharmacy

z-pack - good stuff
tessalon perles - new to me!
(and a lasix refill) - desperately needed :oP

So - I've been sick since last Friday - read 9 days ago. Started so suddenly. I was fine in the morning, went to work, left work - and on the way home, realized my throat was scratchy, and started coughing. By 4ish, the aches and pains set in, and overnight a little cough started. It just got progressively worse, to the point of a pounding headache, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, hurting all over.

Steve was after me to call the doctor, and I just kept saying 'it's only a cold'. But, the cough got worse, and while I feel somewhat better, now I have a sore throat, and left ear, today the doctor said they are both red, and gave me the meds. z-pack I've had so many times, but the tessalon perles are new..and for the cough. Very strange little gold gel thingies. /shrug if they help calm the cough, then I'll be very happy. I've waited on taking it because it can cause drowsiness. And, I just read all the side effects, and lovely ...they can also cause upset stomach, and other not so fun stuff. Just brilliant, already have an upset tummy from the zithromax :( ugh.

Anyway, I haven't worked all week. My boss told me not to even rush back to work this week if I'm not feeling much better. But, to let her know so that she can check in on my stores. I think I will be able to work, though. We'll see.

Now, I'm going to print out some scrapbook ideas, and watch my son finish up his Karazhan run in WoW. His warrior is wearing lovely epic armor, and he's having the most fun ever in game. I dusted off my druid, and she's close to level 50 - 5 bubbles away. :) She's been in hibernation for the last year and then some. Hibernate no more.

So, I'm out.
