All Clear!!

Heart Cath is done and everything was Clear.  No Blockage or anything remotely bad.  Spent all day yesterday on bed rest and today I get to sit on the couch.  My leg is a bit achy where the inserted the catheter, but at least I can move it a round a bit to relieve some of the pain.  So, I have my CT scan on Wednesday and then, God Willing, I will be done with all of this insane testing.

In Vino, Veritas

 I have learned a valuable lesson tonight.  Wine tastes better the more you drink.  and also, it makes me sleepy.  Here's a toast to sleep.  I hope I can get some in  longer than 45 minute intervals tonight.

Tomorrow is my heart cath.  I'll keep you posted.

I really do need to do this more often

 I am such a slacker about posting on my LJ, and I don't know why.  I find it cathartic to post and I have been so completely stressed out lately, that I should have done this sooner.  

For those of you who have been following my FB and Twitter, you know most of this already, but I haven't really posted anything of significance here since Thanksgiving.  Damn.  Didn't realize that it had been that long.  This is mostly going to come off as self indulgent whining, so I won't be offended if you skip it.

Is it any wonder that I have been a little bit stressed out lately?  What kills me, is that every time I have gone in for a procedure, people have told me, "Don't worry, every thing will be fine," and every time, something else has happened.  Makes it harder to believe people.  I'm hoping that everything will be over and done with on Monday, and I can go back to worrying about every day things, like what to make for dinner, and how best to *not* damage my children beyond repair. :)

Everything else has been good and normal, btw.




Accomplished

I feel like I got something done today, despite the fact that I really haven't.  I've cleaned my kitchen, vacuumed my floors, replaced a bunch of lightbulbs, replanted my herbs, and folded a couple of loads of laundry.  And that's just stuff I did at home.  I also went to Lowe's (for the lightbulbs and the potting soil, of course) and cleaned the Acorns out of my Mom's Gutters.  Ya know what?  I busted ass.  I deserve a reward.  Good thing I have one planned, eh?  I'm gonna finish watching my movie and then I'm going to get a nice shower and head over to Carlos' place where he will be making me dinner.  Sort of.  He's cooking the Pork chops anyway.  Wish me luck. :)  He claims that he's not a good cook.  I'll let you know.

In Case you hadn't heard this already...

Stan Lee will be at DRAGON*CON!! 

conflicted.

Trying to decide if I like the new girl in my office.  She's kind of a whiner, and coming from me, that's saying something.  She's been here just about a month and a half and I pretty much know every single aggravation she has in her life.  Her sister is a push over when it comes to her kids and her boyfriend and his kids, and she's still in love with her ex that she left because he basically beat the crap out of her.  We're talking broken fingers and hospital visits and mental abuse, and yet, she is still in love with this asshole.  I'm trying to decide what I should believe and what I shouldn't.    I'll either get used to her or I won't.  But for the moment, I find her just a bit irritating.  But she's learning the job, so which is the lesser of two evils.  *sigh*
