So, I know that I have not been here for a while. This may be a bit lengthy. I have to talk about my job. And medical crap. And the new house. And of course, Lorelli. So....here goes.......
OK - first the job. That I don't have anymore. I was suspended on Tuesday for some personal stuff that I have been dealing with my bank on. I had a check that I wrote returned...and as per policy, since I could not pay the check right away I had to get suspended per a home office decision.
Let's see...the medical crap....we are working on a way to get rid of my migraines. FINALLY!!! When I went to the optometrist, he was very concerned with the severity and frequency of my migraines of my migraines. Sooooo, I went and saw a neurologist...he thinks I have several problems. I am not sleeping well so therefore, my body does not have the energy to combat a migraine when I do get one. So, he is sending me to have a sleep study done, so they can observe me in my sleep and determine what some of that problem is. He thinks that some of the problem with my migraines is that they originate in my occipital nerve. To remedy this, I am going to a pain doctor to get some steroid shots in both of those nerves on the back of my head. That's a little scary to think about, but if it will help, I will take it, for sure. Also, he sent me for an MRI to insure that there is nothing wrong PHYSICALLY with my brain...thankfully that came back normal. And he also sent me for a barrage of blood tests. He tested me for thyroid problems, vitamin D, anemia and some other things. The only thing that came back this time was low Vitamin D. I have yet to go for the sleep study or the pain doctor...I will have to let you know the results.
And, the house. IT IS AWESOME!!!! We have so much furniture. But the house is put together. There are still the finishing touches to be put on the house. I have to hang pictures, and put up unicorns, and put Rob's stuff up and just really PERSONALIZE the house. That's what having a house is about, isn't it? I set up the fish tanks today, but I need to get the test kits, so that I can tell when the cycling is over. I do not believe in using fish to start a tank. Instead, I will use the fishless cycling method using ammonia. I like this better. And, once complete, the fish tank will be able to handle a much higher load of fish than if done the normal way. :-) Sooo exciting. Lorelli has her own room, on the other side of the house, so that is kinda nice. She wakes up at 5:30 in the morning because she is used to getting up at this time to go to Mr Grady's house. I just take her to the potty and put her back in the bed with a hug and a kiss. There is no talking during this interaction at all. I do not want her to stay up any longer than necessary.
And finally, Lorelli. The center of my world. The one who is driving me crazy today. We went and bought her a swimming pool to go with her swim suit that the babysitters bought her. It is nothing big, just a little pool thats about a foot tall and five feet wide, neon green, and inflatable. Mommy actually blew it up by mouth all by herself. It took about 15 minutes, but was not near as bad as I thought that it was going to be. She has gone swimming both days since we got it. She even got a few little small tan lines today. We were only outside for about 25 minutes, and of course we had on sunscreen, but since she is not in the sun THAT often, it affected her a little bit. But don't worry, she will be dark Mexican by the end of the summer, I am sure of this. I have uploaded a ton of pictures of her on my MySpace page if you care to check her out. She is growing up sooo fast that I can not believe it. She is completely potty trained now. It is awesome. Now, I just need her to grow because she can not get on the potty seat without help from a grown up. Its a bit annoying, but I love her and I am just sooo glad that she can use the potty and not use diapers. :-)
