A much needed update!

Friday, October 09, 2009

Times have been crazy around here! I can't believe it's almost 2 months since my last blog!

But anyway here is the huge update!

I'm still at my current job....(bummer) but I keep applying EVERYWHERE lol, so hopefully I get a call soon. The latest update on my father... We went to see the specialist and they didn't not order surgery. He prescribed my father 1 shot of cortisone each week for 3 weeks to help with the swelling so the body can heal itself. Turns out his disk did not slip, a bit of it broke off, so those little fragments are actually pressing his nerve which goes all the way down to his left leg. That is why he doesn't have much strength on his left side. When we went to the specialist they measured his legs and his left side was one inch thinner than his right! Anyway....those shots have to be given by an anesthesiologist, it's like an epidural when you are having a baby, but instead of anesthetics they are putting in cortisone. BUT, the thing is the anesthesiologist is on vacation!!! my dad was given an appointment for the 21 st of this month, but this is just an appointment with the anesthesiologist to check his case, after that they will give him an appointment for the shots! I seriously HATE our medical care system in the US. I love my country but we do need a HUGE reform in this aspect. It is ridiculous how much time my dad's life has been put on hold and drugged with morphine for 3 shots! 3 shots that could have been given to him a looong time ago. He's been out of work and at home on this medication for 3 1/2 months. I just find it ridiculous.

Sorry... little vent there.

About the house....well, there was a turn of events. A house that was being built right next to where we were going to build, was suddenly up for sale. The loan didn't go through or something happened to the previous buyers so they couldn't take it. So they offered it to us. This house is huge. It's like 500sq bigger than the one we had chosen. So after much deliberating, price adjustments, sleepless nights, working our own numbers out, we took that house! It's a 1700sq foot home with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 has a jaccuzi!!!!), and with a fireplace, and formal dinning room. Which we wont use since I am totally 100% NOT formal lol, so that will be an extra room for TV and stuff. sot I guess it's like a 4 bedroom. with garage and a nice porch outside.

We just closed on it last friday. TOday we are moving. My apartment is a complete mess. And I have no dinning set! The thing is, we put on hold this beautiful dinning set that was on sale. So my parents took my smaller dinning set for their house and sold theirs. Now, we're we got this dinning set, well turns out they had so many orders that they can't fill the orders in time. So.... I am stuck without a dinning set. So I told hubby, let's buy some stools for the breakfast bar (I am tired of eating on the floor or sofa), we went and the ones we totally love are out of stock too! WTF!??! lol I guess we'll have to wait.

As you can imagien I have not been working out. I have to stablish my routine again, and that will only happened once I've moved into the new home. I have been really bad with the eating, lots of fast food. Since I don't have a place to sit and enjoy food, well I kind of been VERY lazy with cooking, so we end up eating out.

I made sweet 15th bday cake and cookies and cupcakes on the 19 of sept!! they were a total hit! next weekend (17th) I have a wedding! I can't wait! And the 24th I have another wedding to do! YES!!! This wedding is so awesome! It's for a friend/photographer! She took our pictures when hubby and I were dating and did our wedding pics too. So this time around she is teh one gettting married and since I've never taken family pictures ( I know..bad) we kind of barter our services. She gave us a photo session I am giving her the cake! The coolest thing is that she gave me the basic design of the cake and since she couldn't make up her mind, she let me do whatever I thought would look best! I am thrilled!!!!

ok Im attaching some pics of the new home and cakes and stuff. The weird colors on the wall of my house...well that's just me! lol. I like bold colors! some of the pics are of when it still had some work to be done!

My son loves to pose too! My room is the green one and the red one with the cool chandelier is our dinning area! :D

This is the formal dinning room turned office! LOVE RED!


BAPTISM CAKE- I got a request for a baby shower cake for tomorrow from this cake! but I had to refuse it!!! :*( with the move and alL!

100 cookies personalized and 10 dz cake balls for the sweet 15! AND 50 cupcakes I almost forgot... My hand hurt for 2 days after!

This is a cake I did for my brother in law's wife's baby taht was a mouth full...or type full...whatever..Anyways! I love her! She is due on the 4 of Nov! And I did her cake as a gift but that day the humidity was terrible so it gave a lot of problems but she loved the cake and it was really good which was the point I guess :D

I hope since I am moving life will go back to normal and I will log on daily! or semi daily! I'll post pics of the home once I got things set up!

Thank you everyone for the support and always keeping and eye on me. You have no idea how much it means to me and how much good it does to me....
