Here we go!

So I've decided to start another blog. I'm kinda boring, so I might not have much to blog about, but at least with it being close to Thanksgiving and Christmas I can at least blog about the holidays! I really want to do this so I can keep a record of our lives.

I started feeling really sick on the way to work today so I called in and went to the doctor. They drew my blood, swabbed my throat and my nose. When the guy came in I felt like I needed to warn him that I was not good about getting my blood drawn. I've had a couple of pretty bad experiences with needles so I always panic a little bit when I see them. But this guy was awesome! It didn't hurt at all! I had to thank him for being so good at his job :) Then they swabbed my throat and nose...I've had my throat swabbed before and it was not pleasant, but having your nose swabbed was just awful. He made it really quick, that's just not a fun experience.

So THEN, after all that, the doctor came back in with a look on his face that let me know he didn't have good news. He let me know I had walking pneumonia. (I had heard of that before, but I didn't know anything about it so I looked it up on webmd when I got home--looks like it's basically just a mild case of pneumonia) Anyway, he gave me three different prescriptions to fill and told me they were giving me a steroid shot to make me feel better--guess that one hasn't kicked in yet--but seriously, I have to see ANOTHER needle today? One a day is plenty, thanks. But I acted like a grown-up and didn't cry or anything! Ha! Baby steps. That one hurt pretty bad, but the nurse was nice so I didn't want to tell her she hurt me :)

So I had to stay home from work today and again tomorrow. I'm sure resting all day will really help, but I just HATE missing work when I haven't planned to be out. But I had a fever when I got to the doctor so they probably didn't want me there anyway.

Here's some other stuff that's been going on with us lately:
Lee and I bought our first house back in July. We're loving it so far...the homeowner's association, not so much, but that's a different story. It's so nice to have a fenced in backyard so the dogs can run around! Now if I could just keep it clean!

My brother, sister-in-law and nieces moved to Mobile last week. I hate them being so far away, but it's a really good opportunity for them. They've already sold their house and Birmingham and have found a house down there, so everything's working out great for them.

My twin sister is having a baby!! I'm so excited! I can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl so I can start buying clothes!


  1. I'm so sorry you are sick!! I'm sure Lee will take really good care of you. I'm AWFUL around needles, I probably would have started crying if they told me I had to get a shot.

    I didn't know Sunny was pregnant! That is so exciting.

    It's so good hearing from you! Hopefully I will see you Thanksgiving!

  2. SOOOO glad your blogging again....keep us up on you! Hope you get better soon!!! Needles are no picnic but second nature for me...with my lupus it seems I get blood drawn all the time....went through 7 IV's while in the hospital the other week....again, me and needles....we are close! Hope you don't have to get poked again anytime soon...some just don't like mama and my husband are just 2 that I know of! Here's to your health girl!! HUGS!!!

    Oh...and sooo proud for Micheal and Sunny both!!! These are fun times for you all....
