Yesterday was a Wonderful Day!!!

Kendra had to take a pre-registration test on the campus of UGA, and she asked me to go with her, because she had never been. Well, the drive up was very pretty. Lots of trees, pastures, horses, big homes, etc...Kendra said, "This town is in the middle of nowhere." LOL, I told her that most big colleges are, but she said she didn't want to be out in the middle of nowhere. We kept driving, and all of a sudden there we were, in Athens. BULLDAWG COUNTRY!!! The campus takes up most of the city, and the whole town lives and breathes the Georgia Bulldogs!

The city itself is amazing! There are brightly colored painted bulldogs on every corner and all kinds of quaint little gift shops. The Campus WOW! It's HUGE! We found Kendra's dorm, and we drove all over campus, so she could familiarize herself with it. We go to official orientation the 1st and 2nd of August, and I am so excited for Kendra.

After we left there I received a call from my husband telling me to go look for a new car. We had been talking about it for a while, because my Jeep guzzles gas and the payments are really high. With me not working it is crunch time. So, I went and found a Georgia Bulldog Red Nissan Versa, and I'm really happy with it. However, I'm paying for all of today physically. We didn't even walk that much, just into the one  building. MD appointments for the next two weeks. I need them to get me figured out! NOW!! I don't want to live like this.

Well, I'll start a bit with yesterday. Yesterday, did not start off well. My head was fuzzy, I could not gather my thoughts, my leg joints from my hips down were killing me, my finger joints including my hands were hurting as well, and I had a 7 page paper due today for school.

So, I worked on my paper all day, but it was like trudging through a swamp both physically and mentally. Right in the middle of the paper, I hit the wrong button apparently, because it erased my entire paper. I had to start over completely. I managed to get it done and turned in, but I was physically and emotionally exhausted.....and that brings me to today.

Today, I didn't really do too much. I slept in even though I was in bed last night by 9:30. I think my my brain is pudding, and if is I hope it is chocolate...I love chocolate........

I am Most Definitely Down the Rabbit Hole....

So, Kendra and I go to the Rheumatologist, and what a NIGHTMARE that was! The doctor fed me a line of crap, because she had not even gone over my labs or xrays, and I called her on it. She then told me to make my own appointment at Emory for a biopsy. You don't just walk in to Emory, and say, "Hey, I need a biopsy." It was then that I ended the appointment and asked for my records, and they told me that the "records girl" only copied records on Thursday and they charged 97 cents a copy!!! It just kept getting worse. I finally just walked out nearly in tears with only more questions, so I called my primary doctor on the way home and made an appointment with her. I see her on Thursday, so she can hopefully find me a new doctor. I'm nearly at my wits end!!

Weebles Wobble....

and sometimes we do fall down. Just not yesterday. I came close though. Kendra and I traded phones  yesterday. I didn't even have music on my iPhone, so what was the point? She had an 4G LG Spectrum that was not compatible to her iTunes, so she couldn't get any music on her phone! So we had the bright idea to go to Verizon and trade phones. My iPhone would not back up my contacts on "the cloud" for some reason, so the nice little guy at Verizon had to come up with a plan.SOOOO, since the iPhone isn't compatible with ANYTHING and MOST DEFINITELY NOT the DROID we were trying to trade it with, he had to put our contacts on some other little thingies then transfer them to this other thingy THEN clear out our phones THEN transfer the numbers THEN well, we were at Verizon Too Long for me and my wobbly legs. I was literally using the counter for support. He kept apologizing, but it really wasn't his fault. I think it must be Verizon law that any transaction must take at least 30 minutes, BUT we didn't have to sign in on a stupid computer. He greeted us at the door. What a nice change!

So, "new" phones in hand we left Verizon with me holding on to everything for support. I know people think I am a drunk or something. Most of the time I wish I HAD that excuse. LOL it would be easier just to say, "Oh, don't mind me, I'm just drunk." LOL but then again, I digress. Kendra and I were hungry, actually, I was more thirsty than hungry, but whatever, and I had to pick up Lily Food and fish food. So, we ate(actually I drank unsweetened iced tea more than ate) at Chili's, and got our second wind for PetSmart.

I love PetSmart, and on a normal day could spend hours in there, but yesterday I wasn't feeling it. I grabbed a buggy anyway, more for support than for bugginess, and off I went to the cat aisles. I got Lily food, and then I headed back to the fish aisle to get fish food. That is all I bought. CRAZINESS I know!! No cat toys or new fish. We were just ready to get home by this time!!

So, I have a Rheumatologist appointment today. Hopefully after all of the Xrays and bloodwork, they will have an answer for me. Something has got to give. I'll keep you posted. After all, you come here by your choice, so if you don't care you wouldn't be back. PEACE
