I went to the doc and have been through a battery of testing and lab work done... <BR> <BR> **I'm not pregnant!** YAY!!! <BR> <BR> However, I'm developing fibroids inside of me... The doc wants me to see an OB/GYN... The doc thinks if I have a hysterectomy, I might be better off. <BR> <BR> **Shut The Front Door!!! Um, Hello! I have yet to have a pregnancy. I'm not nor will I ever give you my permission to have a hysterectomy! I will be having child...

I hope to hear word by Wednesday as to when my doctor's appointment will be. It will be nice to find out what the heck is going on with my body and if I'm pregnant or not... <BR> <BR> I hit a mental block mode. My brain feels fried, like I no longer care what happens as long as I can sleep my days away. My family is worried that my anemia is acting up again and might require another hospital visit........

A Subscription! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5645876 I went through Finals week… I may have flunked both my classes… It’s not from a lack of trying, but a lack of understanding. I get my grades this Friday to see if that’s what happened. If I failed both, then I have to pay to retake them… Regardless, my new classes begin on St. Patrick Day’s. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> I have been feeling ill these past few weeks… <BR> <BR> I have been craving spicy food daily for over 2 weeks.

He wants to apologize over dinner for ghosting me... Like an igg I agreed to let the man speak... So, officially I have a date with JR this Thursday night. I am making him suffer by taking me to either the Cheesecake Factory, Eddie V's Prime Seafood or Taste of Texas. All 3 locations do ask that you make a reservation prior to going... {Cheesecake Factory and Taste of Texas are a little more lax in enforcing that rule.) He said he was okay with that. S...

I have been feeling really crabby lately... I am blaming weather, mother nature (woman issues), Houston traffic and my mood. So here is the run down of what I've been through since Jan 22nd... <BR> <BR> I love school, but it's 45 miles one way! Which means I have to leave 2 hours early to avoid Houston Traffic and end up being late for class. I have been finding it a bit challenging to have a new professor f... Wed, 12 Feb 2014 10:54:25 EST Me - JR = New Semester http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5602481 JR: Well, after 2 months of dating, JR has decided to ghost me. Sadly, I dunno what happened or why he stopped calling and texting me. 1 tear for this loss. Yet, it won't break me or hinder me in life. I consider this as a learning lesson. <BR> <BR> Semester: I have 4 classes I'm taking right now. I have 3 more before completion of my degree... Then I can graduate!

Lol! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5576000 Lol @ my mom!!! Somehow we end up watching the tale end of Madagascar. The closing song for the credits plays, "Move it". My mom looks at her cellphone and says, "ChenCha my phone is going off but there's no missed calls." I tell my mom, "Your ringtone is from this movie. ((Mutes and unmutes Tv)) See what I mean." <BR> <BR> My mom is hilarious about these little side comments and snip its.

Per the agreement with my scholarship people I have to make "C's" or better in all classes. I was freaking out, cause I put off doing my biology class until the very week before finals... Not one of my best ideas, but it happened. <BR> <BR> The teachers have until Monday, 12/16 to post the grades. I'm checking my grades every hour that day and would stress out more, with not seeing a grade for my biology class. It's 30 minutes befo...

You’ll see in a minute, what I’m talking about… <BR> <BR> I had a second date Thursday night with JR. He being a complete and utter gentleman knocks on the door when he comes to get me. My sister gets the door and I walk out to see JR in my house. Another big moment for me… Since he’s the first guy in years to cross the threshold of my house, which my family actually knew about. We go to leave and he escorts me to the car. He opens the door and I almost slip an...

Sat, 7 Dec 2013 17:37:32 EST It's a Date! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5555002 [My friends seem to think I need to be hooked up during the holidays. They like playing match-maker. I being a good sport, agree to the dates... Some are better than others.] <BR> <BR> I met this guy through a mutual friend. We haven't been talking long... I asked him if we could meet up for coffee once he got off of shift at 6am on Thanksgiving Day. He was okay with meeting up, suggested Starbucks. We went met up at 6:20a and had coffee. He gave me a hug upon meeting me. We sat, drank coff...

My friend asked that I go and represent (mentor) her at the ceremony. So, I'm all dolled up and dressed to the nines! I go and show support to my friend... <BR> <BR> After the ceremony... My instructor who I have conversations with after every class, comes up to us and tries to excuse her. I tell my instructor it's fine, and call he by her last name. She shocked that I know her name and questions who I am. I tell her my name and explain I got ...

After dinner, I felt like taking all 4 dogs on a walk. The 1st 2 walked for .75 of a mile. The 2nd 2 walked for a full mile. Then I get home and do 20 mins of cardio/kickboxing with 25 pounds of added weight. <BR> <BR> Now I feel pumped! I'm gonna get though, take a bath and watch a movie before bed...

(Speech Class) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5533394 For my Speech class, since I cant do an eulogy and I don't want to do a welcoming address. I would like to do a roast, but then I need the person to be willing to accept the jokes... <BR> <BR> So my professor said if I can prepare a toast with a twist. She'll review the speech and let me know if I can do it... <BR> <BR> The scenario (which I can change up a little): Your best friend is getting married.

My hubby and I would say it periodically to one another, when he was around. <BR> <BR> I asked my friend, Bella, if she ever said that to someone she loved and meant it? To which she said no. Now, I have been talking with Bella for a long time now (almost 5 years). <BR> <BR> Last night I told Bella, "Bella, I do love you my friend.

I wanted to go back to sleep though, even if it was for just 20 minutes... <BR> <BR> I got to work and started feeling queezy. I dunno why. I hadn't drank any water at that point nor ate anything.

I use the county clinic, since I lack health care insurance... Anyways, the nurse is freaked out cause my CBC (Complete Blood Count) level is at 7.3 not at 12.0 like normal people. I'm very calm during the call, and tell the nurse, it's gone as low as 3.1 before. Call me back when I hit 5.0 or something. She insist that I come in and see the doctor. She's worried, I may have a heart attack with my CBC levels being a little low... <BR> <BR>... Fri, 7 Jun 2013 19:25:48 EST Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5380260 I ordered a 1 lb bag of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE). I did a lot of research before ordering this product about the pros and cons of consuming it. <BR> <BR> Last night, my order came in from Amazon. I tried to get the entire DE into a mason jar, but my mason jar wasn’t big enough… I kept the rest in a ziplock bag until I can buy a container big enough to hold the DE, when and if I place another order… <BR> <BR> I decided to try the DE before I went to bed. I made one cup with water... Thu, 6 Jun 2013 11:24:26 EST How to be 'A Man'... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5379068 This was Ripped from: http://www.esquire.com/features/what-is-a-<BR>man-0509 <BR> <BR> <BR> A man owns up. That's why Mark McGwire is not a man. <BR> <BR> A man grasps his mistakes. He lays claim to who he is, and what he was, whether he likes them or not. Some mistakes, though, he lets pass if no one notices. Like dropping the steak in the dirt. <BR> <BR> A man loves the human body, the revelation of nakedness. He loves the sight of the pale breast, the physics of the human skeleton, ... Wed, 5 Jun 2013 11:36:10 EST Aimless, wondering thoughts… http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5378219 My B-Day: <BR> <BR> Thank you all for the birthday wishes and encouragement to stay healthy! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I was both good and bad during my birthday… I had pasta with alfredo sauce, bread with EEVO, 2 glasses of wine and oreo cheesecake… I ate a full bread stick with the EEVO, ½ my pasta dish and the 2 glasses of wine the night of my birthday. <BR> <BR> My birthday party was ok… Of the 57 people I invited, only 10 showed up and 3 were family members… We had a ‘Premier De...

YAY!!! <BR> <BR> And I am up painting a mural for mom's work... Kinda interesting beachy scene with the hurricane glasses that have other June Birthdays names written on them... <BR> <BR> So far, I had a little over my calorie range, but not too bad. I'm enjoying some sinful stuff right now... Coffee with International Delight Sweet Cream Creamer..... lol. Well, it's sinful to me, but well worth the calories. lol... <BR> <BR> I have a lot to do before tomorrow. Ta... Sat, 1 Jun 2013 01:36:20 EST Awe... Feeling loved right now... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5373761 Today is the day before my birthday. <BR> <BR> Yesterday, My boss at another campus, sent me a card with all my co-workers signatures from that campus. <BR> <BR> Last night, my Sunday School class sent me a card too. <BR> <BR> This morning, my co-worker here asked me the second I walked in, "Cyndy, How old are you?" I was taken aback, I hate telling people my age. I respond, "I'm 29 again." She laughs and wants to know why I get to celebrate my 29th birthday if I am no where near 40. I ... Fri, 31 May 2013 14:31:26 EST A bum and A request... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5371649 I was working yesterday… The bum called me, while I was at work wanting to see if we can go out again this weekend coming… I refuse, stating I have plans already made and I don’t want to talk anymore. <BR> <BR> I told my buddy Pepe about what happened… Pepe’s choice of words can’t be repeated here… Basically, what he said was ditch the bum. Cyndy, there are a lot better guys in the world than him. <BR> <BR> Now, Pepe struck a nerve… Rather than yell and scream at him about the list of bum... Wed, 29 May 2013 15:40:11 EST Card 407 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5369417 I have worked on some cards for the auction… But I want to do more. I really do enjoy making cards and the ideas that go through my head are out there. <BR> <BR> Last night (or should I say this morning?), I stayed up until 5:37 am typing up the card measurements, panels, and how to make the card work. Some of the cards have movement, stand on their own, or do something interesting… Let alone, they are real works of art and artistically gorgeous! <BR> <BR> My most favorite one is a triple...
