    ~The Daily Grind~ 8/12/09

    It's Hump Day!! :dance3: And it's my DAY OFF!! So, I have so many plans... and not enough hours as usual...

    My List for Today:

    Caffeinate [​IMG] This repeats every day!!

    Feed the pups
    Feed me
    Clean the kitchen
    Swish and Swipe all 4 potties
    :laundy:...2 loads on now...3 or 4 more to go...

    Sewing...didn't get this done yesterday again... it's hemming DH's pants, he is a size or 2 slimmer (good for him!!) and needed new uniform pants :)

    Hope to get some work done in my Crap Room, and get some projects finished... I'm still under a load of paper from CKC, and a load of pics that I had developed the other day, 143 from Walgreens some for my 365 book, some for my albums...

    Dinner...Crabmeat wraps on Geroge's Grill for apps... friend at work gave me the recipe :teeth:
    Burgers on the outside grill, zucchini, grilled baked potatoes, pudding with crushed graham crackers in pretty dessert cups...feel like making a special dessert... I love days off!!!

    Have a Great Day! :teeth:

    For a very important date!

    I gotta work today. Don't want to, but I do. FIL is coming to take care of Morgan today, which means Burger King and a trip to Target is on deck. He spoils her rotten.

    Still have to boil our water. It's such a pain to wash the dishes! Grrr.

    Hope everyone has a great day!

    I have to work today.

    Other than that, hoping to:
    start laundry (DH will work on today)
    I''d like to scrap at least a little bit....
    I need to get DH's birthday gift, but he's off today, so we'll see.
    Make it to church this evening

    That's the extent of my goals for the day. Pathetic, isn't it?? Work has been so bad lately, I can't plan for more than that. Anything else is extra!!

    I did get to a ladies' get together last night with a group of ladies from church, and it was great! I found out DS6 will have 13 children in his kindergarten class, which is a great thing.....last year they had only 6 in the kindergarten class (small private school belonging to our church).

    Everyone have a great day!

    DS is still at the leadership conference and won't be home until around 3 p.m. and DH is at work so I'm going to take advantage of the no-interruption time and work on some swaps.

    DS and DH are going to a mock eagle board for one of the scouts in our troop (and one of DS's best friends) tonight so I'll get more time to play with paper again!!!

    That's all that I have planned for today.

    Yeah, I feel bad that the last few days have been sammies for dinner... It's just been so hot, and I didn't feel like cooking anything...

    I DVRd Cake Boss the other day, and just got a chance to watch it... OMG it was the Bridzilla one... WHAT A WITCH!!! WOW!!! This is a funny show, wish I had seen the whole season...

    morning....

    well once again my life has thrown me a curve ball. so i've been talking about the whole pinched nerve thing and have been going to the chiro lately. well yesterday i could barely drive there. every bump was like i was dying in pain. and they have my road dug up. OMG! it was awful. and i worked all day like that. so i get there and he takes one look at me and said, "holly, i cant work on you today. you have got to go see your primary care dr." and i totally agreed. i don't even know why i drove all the way over there. 'cause i was desperate for some relief. so the regular dr was closed by then so i went to urgent care. they took xrays and said that there was nothing on them and to ice it and maybe it was a pulled muscle. or maybe it was shingles. but there is no rash there?? but maybe the rash will appear.
    then the chiro called this am and said "holly, the vision of you leaving my office yesterday haunted me all night! i think i've figured out what it is! it's shingles!" yup i told him. that's what urgent care said. he said it attacks one nerve in your body, either on the trunk of your body, your face, your arm someone. but just on one side. and you have this god awful pain for say 5 to 7 days. then the rash breaks out. and you have that for a couple of weeks. so you basically have to ride it out. they did give me vics at the u.c., but they make me vomit and sicky feeling. so i can't take them. dh said i should call the primary and talk to him. give him the low down of what's what and see if he can call me in something other than vic's.
    i so miss my mother right now. she would have found a way to make me feel better. just her voice. something. anything.
    i asked dh why me? and he said that my body is so run down from all that i've been through lately and all the stress probably brought it on. i had chicken poxs when i was 25. and i know that it lays dormant in your body for decades & sometimes you get it and sometimes you don't. i just feel like i'm being tested. i don't know how much more i can take. ya know? :sad:
    ok i've got to go find a way to go take care of my bubba. he's so good. but i feel like he got a raw deal in getting me as his mother. :rolleyes: i'm a total mess. :sad: that's me. all the time lately. he deserves better. am i ever going to be ok? physically and mentally. :headache:

    thanks for letting me vent everyone.
    and NAN-thanks once again to you!:flower3: How did you know something was wrong last night? you texted right as i was at u.c.! you're the best!

    po3 - Hugs to you, I hope there's something that you can get to ease the pain and discomfort a bit... (scrapbooking shopping trip? :laughing:)
    It's good that you figured out what's going on though, even if it took a while.

    Oh Holl, I'm so sorry to hear that! My mom had shingles right after Christmas last year and they lingered (but she doesn't take good care of herself!).

    Is there anything I can do for you? I've got tomorrow off, I can come by with chicken soup and some egg salad (no dill though...).

    Oh Holly!! :hug:

    DH had the shingles, and he was feeling like he had the flu...and the rash was soooo strange too, you could see where the nerve line was... and it was painful. It's not contagious, he had to ask because of working at the hosp. It's not like having a case of the Chicken Pox...it's just effecting you. At least that is what they told him.

    They gave him Valtrex. My DSs both take it for herpes flair ups too. DS21 has to take a low dose, as the higher doses make him sick, but the lower doses he doesn't have any trouble with.

    It is an opportunistic nasty virus, and it will have a resurgence when you are stressed...and that is an understatement for what you have been going through. Your body is telling you to take care of yourself. Time to stop beating yourself up Holly! You are doing everything right! Bubba has a great mother. There is nothing wrong with him seeing you sad and crying. I just gave my boys a big hug at those times... still do...

    :hug:

    Stress can REALLY do a number on your body!

    I had shingles years ago - very stressful time at work since the company I headed up was failing, etc. - the pain was bad enough, but the itchy "belt line" rash was simply the last straw. The docs recommended an Aveeno oatmeal soak in the tub as often as you can. (It came in a green and white box at the drug store.) It did help a bit on the worst days - and there might be other remedies now, but thought I'd share - having "been there."

    The other treatment I've used for painful itchies - bug bites, rashes, etc. is the drug store brand (or name brand, but I'm cheap!) of maximum strength Vagicil. It works instantly to stop itching anywhere on your body - not just where it is "supposed" to work for feminine itching. (I've even been using it constantly this summer on my DS10's mosquito bites from camp - I just never let him see the tube!:lmao: ) Good luck!

    :hug: Hugs Holly! I'm so sorry your body is rebelling on you. You ARE a fabulous mom to Bubba. Stop beating yourself up about that- as mom's we tend to have so much guilt and I know you are going through so much more and are feeling so much more. Bubba loves you and I know he thinks he hit the jackpot in the Mom department. We love you and know that we are here for you.

    We used this on DD when she had the strep throat rash all over her body. It gave her a lot of relief.
