I'm Brilliant ***Updated

So this is the last week for my wonderful Business Writing Course. We have a final project due that is worth 200 points. I did so well in the class I only need 123 out of 200 to keep my A.


I got 188 out of 200 - so I got an A. Woo Hoo!

Gotta Learn to be Quicker with the Camera **UPDATED

Dang it. I missed the cutest, cheesiest grin ever this morning, y'all would have DIED if you saw it.

FYI - Patrick is scheduled for the Neurologist on Sept. 5th. Unfortunately, our insurance plan here at work is changing on the 1st of September - no more co-pays - now it's going to be a $500 deductible and then 20% of the cost. ACK! I called this morning to see if there was anyway they could put me on a cancellation list so if someone cancels I can get in sooner, and they were like "no, you'll just have to call us every other day" WTF!? Like I have nothing better to do?! Geez Louise!

***I left out the part about the no more copays only being for specialists - we still pay a co-pay to see our primary care

If You Really Love Me You'll Leave Me a Comment

I need some help all you cooking guru's out there. Anyone know of a tasty HEALTHY way to cook okra? I've never had it other than fried so I'm not sure. Is it good by itself or is it generally added into soups/stews etc? Our neighbor gave us a metric assload of the stuff so I think we should probably eat it.

That is all.

Terrible Twos? Try Terrible Ones.

Yes, that's right people, my kid has taken to throwing temper tantrums if he doesn't get his way.

Don't get food off mommy's plate? temper tantrum
Won't let him tear up daddy's cheaper than dirt catalog I asked him to put up umpteen thousand times? temper tantrum
Change his diaper when he doesn't want to? temper tantrum
Don't let him chew the washcloth in the tub? temper tantrum

I think you get the idea.

He actually throws himself backwards and SCREAMS. I think I may have to kill myself.

However, I noticed his gums are very swollen on one side this morning, so maybe it's just teething. Hey - I can dream can't I?

We are off to see the Neurologist

We did an EKG, and an echocardiogram. We did NOT find anything that would cause fainting episodes. However, we did find a slightly enlarged aorta which the doctor said bears watching as it could lead to problems down the road. He also said it would probably correct itself. We also had to take home and wear a holter monitor for 24 hours. Basically a portable EKG - with lots of wires for a baby to mess with and piss him off while he's trying to sleep. Yea. That came off this morning. They got a good 15 hours worth of readings. The cardiologist does not expect to find anything else with this but wanted to be sure.

So - one down, one to go.

Let Me Know

If the music gets annoying. I found this cool little tool for my myspace page and I thought it would be cool to use here.


Don't you hate it when you just can't get rid of evil people from your past? Why can't they just crawl under a rock where they belong?!


PS - I need this

Dude. I thought they said Obama had support from blacks?

And what kind of moron is Jesse Jackson that he thinks he can smooth this over? And why would he want to? Why not just man up and say, yeah, I think Obama is trash. Why? Because then everyone would know he's in it for the fame and money and he doesn't really give a shit about blacks or their problems, that's why.

What a jackass.

Both of them.

Patrick Update

We have an appointment with the Cardiologist on July 14th. They said they will review what his primary had to say, examine him, and if they feel tests are warranted they will do them right there in the office. Keep your fingers crossed.

Call Me Crazy...

But I really like Glenn Beck

Case in point:

There was another article he did the other day on what a conservative believes that I really liked as well. Can I vote for him?
