Angie accident......

No not another one. :-) Just one I saw at the store. This is an Angie Accident waiting to happen if I ever saw one!

Cat picture of the day.

This is Gracie. She is my rarely seen cat. She likes my brother and sis-in-law and of course me and hubby, but that is about it. Obviously you can see she gets upset at me when I spend too long on the puter and not paying attention to her. It was WAY past what we call "Gracie Gracie Time" at hour house and this is her way of telling me.

Busted fingers and conflicting doctors

Yes, I broke my finger. No, I wasn't put in a medieval torture device by my boss like I sometimes tell people. Although, its fun to say. On March 12th....just a few days after I fell down the stairs in my house and the day after my 29th birthday, I got called into my managers office to chat. Well, I scooted the chair too hard and too fast and smooshed it between the arm of the chair and a metal part of her desk and it broke. My finger, not her desk. :-) It had this nice straight cut on it and it bled while we were talking. I think I even almost swore when I did hurt that bad. I wasn't going to have it checked and when Chris saw it he let me know how we were spending our evening. We went down and got it x-rayed and they splinted me up and told me it was broken...small but still broken. Saturday I was having some burning in the bottom of my finger and I kept taking the splint off so I went back to the same clinic, but saw a different doctor. He is an ortho doctor (ortho doctor douche bag if you ask me) and x-rayed it again and told me that the burning is from the bruising that is happening in the muscles and its not really broken, just buddy tape it and you will be fine. For workers comp injuries, I am supposed to have follow up I go to mine on the week following the initial injury. Dr. DB isn't there and I see the doctor I saw the first time and she tells me it is broken and splints it back up and I will be wearing the splint for 2-3 weeks. Fast forward one week. This past Thursday I go in to get it re-checked again to see if I am doing any better. No. I still have a marshmallow finger, it still hurts and I am getting sick of this. The doctor who has been seeing me since the beginning says maybe there is an infection in there and we will give you a shot of antibiotics in your bum and come back for another tomorrow night....oh and here are some to go. Friday night we go in and the wait is just too long and we decide to come in Saturday morning instead. That brings us to today. Dr. DB is there today. He wants to do more x-rays and not follow what is written on the plan...after all he is the ortho doctor who knows all! Do more x-rays and they show my bone is healing. HURRAY! He does not follow her orders though. He takes me out of my splint and no shot of antibiotics in the bum and tells me to go get hand therapy. I got upset and asked him why he wasn't just going with her orders. He got all defensive about how he is an ortho guy and he does this for a living and sees this all the time. He told me what he wanted me to do....I told him I would make a decision of what I wanted to do next week. Since I have proof that my finger is healed, I might just have to go the route of splint off, rehab my own damned finger and if it gets any worse I will go see my own doctor from now on.

On a happy side note, I got into the pain management clinic this past Tuesday....saw all 3 doctors that you need to see for them to make an assessment on you and we will hopefully know something next Tuesday or Wednesday about how they can help improve my quality of life. *listening to the angels sing* They were so nice and helpful and even the psychotherapist guy told me I wasn't crazy! BONUS!

I miss them!

These two cuties are Lydia and Noah. The cutest couple of relatives a girl could ask for. They live far far away too. Their mom and dad decided to go on a Christian mission and build homes for 2000 children out in the jungle. It is so beautiful out there, though I have never seen it. They are doing so much wonderful work. I just wish they could do wonderful work close to home. :-) They are well rounded kids who are so worldly and kind and wise. You would never think they were 7 and 4. They are amazing and amaze me everyday. Lydia would ask me while they were on furlough why I had fake finger nails and when I was going to take them off. I told her they make me feel pretty. She would tell me I didn't need them to make me feel pretty, I already was. I almost was disappointed in myself when I put them back on this February. They didn't stay on for long. Lydia got in my head, even if she didn't know it. We were able to spend about 6 or 7 months with them last year when they came home for an extended visit. We would spend Monday nights together and just getting to know each other again. It was amazing. I long for those times again. They are such a giving family who gives their whole life....I am truly amazed by them. Well, I better write to them since Skype isn't working so well for us tonight. I did get to hear Rachel and Lydia's voices for about 90 seconds. :-) I will write about my not so important broken finger tomorrow night.

Picture time!

Sorry, none of my injuries...these are of some fun stuff. First one...My favorite Chub Chub kitty.

These are my crafts. They are bottle caps with little pictures in them. These ones are my favs.

Maybe 30 will treat me better.

You know how I told you all I fell down the stairs last Sunday and messed some stuff up, right? Well, then I had a birthday....numero 29. No, not an anniversary of 29 just really 29. It was rough because I came home early that day and my ankle was really swollen. I had my desk decorated by the cute girls at work and Niki took me to an awesome lunch at Chili's and gave me a Tori mixed cd and a towel she cross stitched for me that says "WTF?" on it in bright colors. That part was good. Then I spent the rest of the day in bed pouting because I had a kankle and I had to keep ice on it and dinner was kraft mac and cheese. I got over it.
Thursday...I was starting to feel better. I ditched the knee brace and was walking better. HURRAY! I "accidentally" left my sling at home. Oopsie. That one I really shouldn't have done. My elbow is killing me. I made it to work all day. Good for me. Well, around 4pm I got called into the managers office. Nothing big promise. I get in there and start scooting my chair in and I scoot it so far I squish my finger between the arm of her chair and a metal part of her desk. I squish it so hard and so fast, it starts to bleed. It is hideous. My eyes well up and I start to swear. We have our chat, I leave the room and my finger starts to swell. I just keep thinking, "I am not going to get this checked out, I dont need one more stinking brace on any part of my body." I finish work and Chris picks me up. I showed him what I had done do you know what he says? "We are going to get that checked out." I got it x-rayed and looked at and pulled on and splinted. The doc thought she saw a fracture in my knuckle. Boy was I pissed off. All I could do was laugh. Today I had to go back because while having the splint on, my finger would start to burn. In the middle of the night I took off my splint and lost it in the bed. The nice doc I saw today was some kind of ortho specialist moonlighting at the urgent care clinic...hurray for me! He re-did the x-rays, said it is not broken and told me why it burned so bad. It burns because when you have a muscle that is bruised that badly, it bleeds. The muscle doesnt like blood in it so gravity takes it away and naturally goes to the end of your finger. This blood starts out as red and eventually will turn into a bruise. Gross huh???? Now, I just have to buddy splint it for a week and get it checked out next Saturday due to it being workers comp. And Monday I get rechecked for my fall from the stairs to see if I can ditch the arm brace or not. I guess we will see if I can have a 29th birthday redo. Here's to hoping!!!!!

Henna, fun and fall down go boom!

You know, we had a mostly good weekend. Saturday I felt good enough to work for a half day. How super cool is that? Then we got it all coordinated to get together with Mikey (my ex-boyfriend, but still awesome friend from high school), his husband Derek, and Angela and Travis. Funny thing is...Angela and Mikey work together! They are great buds too. We had a great time. Played Apples to Apples, got some henna done and did a lot lot lot of laughing. Here is my henna by the way!

Sorry it is upside down. That is the only way I can take pictures of my own hands and I forgot to flip it. And yes that is a kitty in the middle there. :-) In the middle of chatting and henna, Hubby decides he needs to henna himself on his knuckles. He spells out hate on his knucks like some prison tattoo. Blame it on the booze. It was still fun!

Sunday didn't turn out so well though. I got up around 9 or 10 or I am not really sure cause of the time change, but was walking down the stairs and my foot hit the edge of the stair and I slid and tumbled down. Landed myself right there on my butt by the fridge. Poor hubby jumped outta bed and asked if I was ok. I couldnt decide if I was crying cause I was panicking or because I was hurt. Once I finally got up, I was crying cause it hurt. We went and spent about 4 hours in the ER. Nothing is broken. Just a sprained knee, wrist and elbow and lots of bruises and sore sore muscles. I feel like I have been hit by a truck. So, I am gonna go lay down and watch a movie since this has been a little painful to write. I will keep you updated though...and take pictures of pretty bruises if I get any!

More cats in hats.

Maybe I should just start a blog about me embarassing my cat and dressing him up in rediculous clothing. I LOVE IT! He hates it and so does my husband. But let me tell you this last one was classic! Who doesnt think a cat in a Wendy's girl wig is hilarious??? Come on now. You are wondering what he looks like and how funny this is gonna be. You know you are. I can see it through the monitor. Well, here is Mushy cat in his Wendy's girl wig!

So it is kinda small...but it is also, blurry. He didn't like it, ok? We thought it was effin' funny! This next picture is even better...this one we call pissed off cat in a Wendy's girl wig....roflmao!

"Mom I am done with this shiz....take it off!" Hahahahahaha! Sorry cat. I love dressing you up. Maybe I will start a new blog about dressing cats up and other people can contribute, like Go there if you havent seen it. Its a laugh and a half! Ok bye guys!

A little pick me up for my desk at work!

I guess I made a good impression on this Matt guy....cause look what he brought me! A signed photo (TO ME!) of Air Supply. I love them. I am barely old enough to know them...but my mom used to clean house to them and that is how I became to love them. Last April, I took my mom to see them in Wendover for her birthday. It was soooo super awesome cool. They came out in the audience and sang to all the screaming girls...*swoon* Matt was cool enough to bring this home to me. He took all the pictures for the concert this time they came and he did a great job. Maybe if I ask real nice I can post a couple here.

Also, here is my kitty picture of the day. I just like it because it is bright, sunny and makes the kitty fur look really pretty. I wish I had a cool camera like Niki or Matt but I am not as cool as them yet. This was taken again with my G1 when I was home sick. Love the Inka Stinka and the Mushy. :-) The kitties and hubby take good care of me when I dont feel well.

*sigh* I am having trouble

First let me list the things I know. I am know I am in a lot of pain and I a cant sleep. I know I have cried on a cat. I know I can hear Chris in there sleeping away and he deserves it. He puts up with a lot. What I dont understand is why I want to go to sleep and my leg, hip, arm, shin anything that can will hurt and hurt so bad I cry. I came in the computer room just so I wouldnt wake Chris. The one time I want someone to talk one is awake. Lucky them they are all sleeping. Damn it. I am crying again. I want the pain to go away, I want to be able to walk in the mall like a normal person. I want to not be up all hours of the night NOT crying in the computer room. I want to go back to work and have the same position I did when I left. Want want want. I think I will just go try to something funny until I can get into the doctor tomorrow. Here is a little funny for you guys too....cause I'm not crying. Its just been raining on my face.
