Rambling Thoughts...

This is one of those posts where I have a lot to say, but don't know how to organize it, or the time...sorry!

  • First and foremost, thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, suggestions about my BIL's diagnosis and my feelings regarding it. I just love you all!
  • Only working 3 days this week was 3 days too many.
  • Can't wait to share my pics from out west.
  • The BIG box of meds came yesterday. WOW! To say I'm overwhelmed is an understatement.
  • $4,700 of medicine, thank goodness for insurance coverage. I paid just under $200 out of pocket.
  • I was thisclose to losing 15 pounds in 10 weeks, yet it only took 1 week to gain 4.2 pounds.
  • Hot & humid weather is less than desirable.
  • Unpacking suitcases is not nearly as fun as packing them
  • August seems forever away
  • I'm finally caught up on my go.ogle re.ader, all 250 posts read!
  • Ice cream sounds good.
  • Jon & Kate + 8 just makes me sad.
  • A week from today, we're heading south, to Georgia, for another wedding.
  • Wonder if AF will be late, now that I want her to come on time?
  • Laundry, laundry, laundry.


  1. Ice cream DOES sound good! I may have to get some in a little bit... yummo!

  2. oh i know!!! I lost about 7 lbs in 6 weeks and i think i gained 3 or 4 of it back during the pregnancy and miscarriage...
    and jon and kate makes me sad too. but i'm not getting into that now.

    i prayed for your BIL last night, that is so heartbreaking.

    dude, it's hot and humid here too! BOO!

    ANyway, hope you have a great weekend!

  3. The point-by-point update is just fine:-) Sometimes, life is so overwhelming. Great medical insurance! No-one I know has coverage like that.

    Just read the post on your BIL. So, so, sorry. Your poor sister, too... all she wanted was a baby...

  4. I am so excited your meds came! I know it is a hectic time, in your family and soon for your body, but I am so excited that this stage is beginning. I am continuing to think healing thoughts for your BIL.

    I totally agree about J & K + 8... sad. Laundry, no fun. I am with you, though.


  5. I cried about jon and kate. it's so flippin sad. they better have gone to marriage counseling. the kids deserve it. those kids are going to pay the price. though, my parents divorced and i am relatively normal.
    so you're coming to GA? where? i am sure that we are both too busy and k and i are leaving for the lake tomorrow--but cate and i would LOVE to see you.
    it sounds like you are not beating up my friend as much--and that is exactly what you should be doing.

  6. How lukcy that your insurance pays for so much. Ice cream is the bomb, especially in hot & humid weather too. Wishing u much success this cycle.

  7. AF does have a timeline of her own, doesn't she. Shows up when we don't want her and doesn't show up when we do. Ugh.

    Hope you had a good trip out west.

    Now I am off to find some ice cream - thank you very much. :-)


  8. I wish I had your insurance. Ours covers a big NADA! Sounds like you've been pretty busy. Hoping AF makes her arrival soon!

  9. I know it's wussy of me, but I've been thinking today that I HATE hot humid weather. And it isn't even that hot here (maybe 85 or so), but since there is no A/C here, there is no relief! We went for a walk this evening, and even the breeze felt stiflingly moist. YUCK.

    That's okay. Soon enough, I'll be back in the land of sweltering heat and humidity, this time with the brilliant addition of conditioned air!

    And yes. Unpacking is so much suckier than packing...
