Finally home from the hospital
Well, two blood transfusions and five enormous tumors later (three of which that were unexpected), I am finally home from the hospital after my hysterectomy. Strangely, it did not hurt near as much as I thought, mostly because they gave me some... Read more
Bye, Uterus. It was "fun" while it lasted.
I'm going to make this quick, mostly because I don't have the energy or attention span to deal with it. I found out last Monday that I have a 9cm tumor perfectly housed in my uterus. Takes up practically the whole thing. Needless to say, it's... Read more
Mars Attacks! or, more appropriately, Mars Panics!
I am so ready to be done. My job is about to drive me over the edge. Correction: it already has. I've been fighting off anxiety and sleeplessness for the past three months. I thought I could deal with it on my own, but my body is telling me ... Read more
Roly-Poly: Destroyer of Bikes
I am at the end of my rope with my Specialized Sirrus Sport. It seems that just about every month I am down at the bike shop for something or other. Just since the beginning of the year, I have had to replace the back tire, the cassette, the s... Read more
You know you're tired when...
Greetings, Sparkpeeps, and welcome to the continuing series of indignities that is my life. You ought to get a kick out of this.
So there I was last night, stepping out of the shower and drying off, trying to get ready for bed. It had b... Read more
Holding steady at -15 pounds. I need a tutu.
I know it's been a while, but I crawled under a rock in the weeks leading up to my birthday and just decided to stay there. This seems to happen every year. I think I must be one of the few people in the world who a... Read more
Patience is not always a virtue. And I think I bit my tongue off.
Today was a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG day.
I got a call from my husband at 8:30 this morning. I was about to go out and scrape the inch of SNOW off the car before heading to a client visit in a neighboring... Read more
I stared at the scale for a long time this morning. I weighed myself five times just to make sure I... Read more
So here I sit, staring another four to five days of low activity in the face. How do I know? Well, I'll tell you.
See, I actually got a bit of sleep last night. HOWEVER, when I woke up this morning, I was pant... Read more
Well, I'm still waiting for this dumb cough to go away and whatever is in my lungs to clear out already. However, I'm feeling well enough to be absolutely appalled by the state of my house, and I'm slowly going aroun... Read more
Well THAT was fun... (I'm rambling)(TMI)
So it turns out that the "little bug" I had contracted turned into a much bigger one. I had a 102 degree fever for two days and alternated between sweating like a racehorse and chills where there were not enough blan... Read more
Blogging in between coughs
I'm not sure what it is that I have, but I surely do wish it would go away. It's not allergies, per se, and it's not flu, and it's not a cold. Just a runny nose, tiredness, and a hacking cough which is exacerbated b... Read more
The weekend of recipe experiments
One of my New Year's resolutions is to incorporate more healthy food in our diets here at the House of Karlsson. Rather than wait around until January 1, I decided to go ahead and get the jump on things, especially ... Read more
Mr. Karlsson wades in the healthy eating pool
As you may or may not know, Mr. Karlsson is experiencing the onset of middle age spread. He's been in denial about it for quite some time, but now that the scale has tipped 200 pounds (even without clothes), he's bec... Read more
You may have noticed that I make a point not to really talk about my family all that much, my female progenator in particular. For various and sundry reasons, I prefer not to burden the general public with such talk,... Read more
