Starting Over 35-37 GREAT NEWS

Friday, November 16, 2012

The last few days have been so hectic I don't think I can even do day by day post lol

Lets see Tues night I only worked on my Spanish lab that was due Wed.

Wed Long day at school, picked up the kids and came home and made a nice wholesum meal. Which was nice considering I have been so busy so its been TV dinners or fast food more than we should.

Thurs My Oper MGMT teacher decided to change our exam and due date of excel homework from this comig Tues to the Tue after Thanksgiving. YAY more time to study considering I got a D+ on the 1st exam. But she take the grades for best 2/3. We had to go to the mall last night to get out outfits for pics. We are doing a dark purple theme this year. I of course had issues finding me a nice shirt. Just makes me sick how much weight I have gained back! I am thinking about looking into the south beach diet. I think I want someone to get me for Christmas is the Zumba Exhilirate DVD set. I really want my moms treadmill but I am not sure that I want to get rid of my fireplace to put it in my living room. Not that we use the fireplace for anything more than to put things on. I don't know what to do.

Fri...After kids get out of school taking them to get haircuts. GOing to start on some analysis paper due next Wed. Got to get some stuff done in my house. It is ridiculous! TOmorrow is family pictures.

Still haven't heard anything about my bloodtest. GOing to send her a note this morning.

Hope everyone has a terrific weekend!!

    are you like me and have to function on overload or nothing gets accomplished? If I have only a little to do, nothing will get accomplished. I have to be overloaded to be productive it seems, otherwise procrastination gets me every time.

  Hola! :) I saw your comment about Spanish. I'm an elementary Spanish teacher. :) If you have difficulty with any concepts, feel free to write and I'll help any way I am able. I teach rather non-traditionally... through awesome online music videos and games to make it more relevant and fun for my students and am more than happy to share my links with you. Buena suerte!

Starts over day 31-34/Mi muy Loco! But THANK YOU!!!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Good Morning,

I first want to thank everyone for their supportive, and encouraging comments on my feed, blogs, threads, and goodies I have received. I am having a hard time juggling everything that has been going on with my health, school, home but just trying to take it one day at a time. I always try stop by and thank each person individually but lately it has been hard. I want you to know that I do read all of your comments and I do whole heartedly appreciate them!

Lets see where to begin:

Friday: (going back to day 30)....Friday evening was my time to register for winter. I was planning to take Spanish 2 during the days MWF just as I am now and then MGMT online. Well the 2 online sections were closed by the time I registered. So I am on the waiting lists. Now ALL of my remaining classes are only offered at night. I did sign up for the Tues evening class but unsure if I am able to keep it since I am unsure about a babysitter at this time. Still working on that. I have spoke to the teachers and the depart head and they maybe considering opening another online section, or I may be able to get into one of those if people drop it, she knows my situation and put it in a file to help them make their decision so keeping my fingers corssed. but even if this semester works out I still face this dillema the rest of the time I am in school since all my upper level/grad classes are only offered at night. Once I know what is going on with my MIL and her finding a new job I will have a better idea.

Saturday/Sunday: Me and Jason got out there and scrubbed that dirty pool. Hung it over a bunch of chairs sprayed it off and let it dry over night. I was already feeling a lil more nausaus than usually, so I layed down. I didn't have much of an appetite, but when I thought I felt hungry I ate and that was bad, I couln't keep it down, the pains came on strong and I was ready to die. But this time I think it may been a stomach bug because my skin hurt and I was getting the hot flashes that I get with the flu. I think Evie may have brought another one home from school seeing others were out that week including the teacher. Jason also got sick Saturday. Although everyone else felt good the next day I still suffered all day and slept and couldnt get out of bed all Sunday. Think sine my tummy is already screwed the stomach bugs last longer and are worse for me. So my MIL came over Sunday and helped Jason fold up the pool and store it for the winter.

Monday: Felt a little better, able to function. Took kids to school and went and got my blood test done. Talking with the lab tech and she said that it sounds more like an ulcer to her too. So just have to wait and see. Just want to get on the mend asap! This has really been affecting everyday life for me. Contants ups and downs are horrible. One minute I am good, next I wanna keel over.

Today: Going to class, and lots of homework. This week is going to be jammed with homework again. I can't wait for this semester to be over!!!

Well hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    Hopefully you'll get your answers soon and get started on some treatment. I hope you get your school schedule worked out too. I'm a little surprised they only offer those other classes at night. I know when I was in school it was the other way around, people that worked during the day and wanted night classes but couldn't get them. I guess it just goes to show different times and different schools.

Starting over days 28-30/Healthy update

Friday, November 09, 2012

Good Morning all,

Sorry been a couple days, been busy getting stuff done around here. Been getting my 30 minutes each day while at school. I was up this week .8 lbs. Not too bad, I was hoping my loss was continuing but TOM thought otherwise. Last night was interesting, Evie came in my room at 2 in the morning because she vomitted in her bed (I have a feeling it was something she ate as oppsed to bug) so I clean it all up got her situated and went back to bed, 3 minutes later the dog vomitts in my bed, luckily it was just on the comforter so easy to take it off and throw in the wash, what a night.

Well my dr had to cancel my appt yesterday due to family issues. She sent me a note wanting me to up my dose of prilosec and follow guidelines for GERD. I sent her a note to let her know I did some reseach, what I thought it was and about the iburprofen. She is testing me for the H Pylori, she sent me the lab form for a blood test so I will do that today. Then if positive will we start an antibiotic. We are going to give it a couple weeks on the higher dose of prilosec and possible the antibiotic, if the pains/nausea don't subside she is sending me for ultrasound and/or endoscopy.

I think that is about it...Have a great weekend friends!

    Oh my, what a night! Our dog has been gone a year; but, I distinctly remember the sound and being woken up by it many times. And, a sick child is never fun.

Hope the up'd dosage helps with the tummy issues.

Have a happy and healthy weekend with the fam!

Days 24-27/Oh my my...

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Sat (Day 24) didn't accomplish anything just layed around watching movies

Sun (Day 25) Got up cleaned the kitchen, took down the decorations, took some ibuprofen and got severely sick. Feel a little better today so far. Been laying around and sleeping. Went and did some research on constant nausea/bad stomach pains and came across H. pylori infection and peptic ulcers. I believe after years of being on iburprofen for headaches that I have caused some damage to myself. So needless to say I am never taking another NSAID again. I am scared to take my imitrex now, so have to discuss that too with the dr on Thurs. I am hoping it is not the ulcer because the infection I can take an antibiotic for.
We also decided not to take the pool down because it was cold but this coming weekend will be almost 60 so we are doing it then :)

Mon (Day 26) Didn't go to class but I contacted my professors and explained what has been going on. They are working with me.

Tues (Day 27) ELECTION DAY....Don't forget to VOTE!!! I have to take Evie to school then go to Bubbie's school for his parent teacher conference this morning, then I will be going to class today. At some point I have to hit the polls to cast my vote! Going to be busy.

Well I missed by day to cancel my sparkcoach membership so I will be on for another month. Must have been subconsiously since I really like it emoticon .

Going to have to get organized on my homework. I feel so behind but yet I don't think I am...

Heres to a busy day emoticon

    I feel like I've read this somewhere....oh wait....now I remember. I have. LOL. Just kidding. I love that you're posting this everywhere. Not only does it save you time from having to post numerous different things on one post, but it also makes sure that people not on those other teams know what's going on. I have decided to steal your idea for now in terms of posting. Whatever update I post first on a team, I'll copy and paste it to the others and then add my individual responses underneath it. That will save me a bit of time. Thanks for the idea! Keep up the awesome work!

I am being nosy, and couldn't find it on Sparkpeople, how much is the spark coach membership? Is it worth it? I need a big evil looking dude (or dudette) to show up at my door and whip me into shape...hmm, wonder if spark offers that service?!?

Have a great day!

    I hope the doctor can give you some answers. It's hard when a medicine for one thing causes a whole other problem. Then you're left with two problems instead of the original one.

It does sound like a busy day. I'm hoping to get my vote in before work or at lunch, if not I'll have to wait in a long line after work. One of the "perks" of my job is that we are a poling place so I don't have to go far.

    Sorry that you are feeling so poorly. You may be right about the NSAIDs...they do both good and bad. The doc can give you some meds to heal the tummy, my BH has to take them for the same reason. It stinks, but it does help.

Do you really like the SparkCoach? I did the two week trial, but didn't sign up for the paid version. I have way too many places to check in...and i feel guilty when I don't get to them all. I didn't want to add another one, but at the same time, I really need help! lol

Starting over Day 22 & 23

Friday, November 02, 2012

Good Morning Everyone! A new month is upon us and a new year is quickly approaching. Where did the time go?!

Halloween was fun but busy. Kids party went great, although Evie was worn out, she still wasn't feeling 100%. But by the time trick or treating came around she was in a great mood and acted just like herself. We went with my cousins and some friends. It was fun. My midterm in spanish that I had to go to in between classes was great. She posted the grade and I got an A :)

Yesterday I was really worn out from the day before so I didn;t accomplish much but going to class. I went to bed to watch a movie last night around 6 and was asleep before 8:30. The other day I pulled a muscle in my back stretching. I really need to get back on my yoga again. It is killing me!

This weekend is going to consist of taking down the pool finally, cleaning house, and taking down the halloween decorations!

TGIF!
