Crazy Days

Wow, what a crazy couple of months. I barely had time to breath. hehehe

Hubby had his surgery and recovered nicely in a couple weeks and went back to work. He is calling his doctor a miracle worker.

Kiddo started high school. I about died, my kid, in high school!!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh

Took a few days to get leveled out with that.

Captain Daddy had some not great news from the docs. His blood work was showing kidney damage. to a bunch more doctors, and tweeking of meds.

Kiddo joined the computer club, and works some of the sporting events concession stands. That's pretty cool I guess. He's never done anything socially with middle school, so I hope he gets into some extra stuff with high school. I always enjoyed it.

I ended up falling again. Messed myself up some. Getting the help and getting up seems to have damaged me more than just the fall did. Good grief. But I seem to be almost completely back to normal (as if I ever was normal)

The hospital where Gigantor had his surgery, apparently wasn't happy with me making a payment to them every month, and decided they wanted all their money at once. Yup, I laughed at them. So...they turned me into collection, which is now accepting my payments every month. sheeesssshhhh

The cat ended up getting pretty sick. He stopped eating and lost a bunch of weight (he's 10 years old) Took him to the vet, and they determined it was pancreatitus. He got an antibiotic shot, and some lowfat food. (a dollar for each small can of food) costing us a total of 207 dollars for that visit. Thank god captain daddy helped us out with that.

Last year out heater kept going out. We needed a new one but had/have no money. We kept trying to repair it, and it kept breaking down. We ended up using space heaters, to the unbelievable cost of 5 to 6 hundred dollar a month electric bills. That almost killed us, we have never paid over 225 a month. Finally now that it's getting ready to cool down some, we actually took a loan out against Gigantors TSP account (thrift savings plan through work) The payments will only be 19 dollars a pay period. So...not bad, and we now have a heater on order.

Anyhow that is the highlights of what's been going on, a bunch of little stuff added to all that. hahaha

Off now to read other blogs. I haven't even had time to do that.

Sorry Haven't Posted

Sorry I haven't posted for a few days. We have been darn busy. Lots of doctor appointments. Chiropractor for me and hubby. Doctor for Captain Daddy. We had to go to Kanab (couple hours north) for a post op appointment for Gigantor, and I have a doctors appt tomorrow.

Gigantor is doing great, he is released for work on Monday. He is happy, he has been going stir crazy. I've enjoyed it, but I understand him wanting to get back to work.

The doc did say that hubby's cartilage was very very soft, so he now has to be on Glucosamine/Chondroitin like I am. He was ticked, cuz he's never had to take any kind of medicine or pills on a daily basis before. But oh well he will get over it.

We have been driving Captain Daddy around. His vehicle is in the shop. He got in a little accident the first part of July.

I'm very sad that school starts in a week. Can you believe that Kiddo is going to be in high school??? Now that depresses me. uggghhh

Well just wanted to let you know I was still here, not left yet.

Have a great Friday everyone!!!

Boring Thursday

Can you believe that possition??? that is one of her favorite ways to sleep. Either on her back like that, or with her butt up on your leg, so her ass is in the air. Goofy ass dog.

Not much going on today. Gigantor and I stayed up way late/early last night, just talking. It was nice, but we didn't go to sleep till 3. Then we both got up before 8. Uggghhhh

He had my dad take him to the chiropractor to get his knee taped with the kenesio taping. it helps with the swelling.

We ate some lunch and I watched him sleep on the couch. Then we put in a dvd dad loaned us. It was a show on PBS called Carrier. It's about the lives on the air craft carrier the Nemits. It is 10 hour long shows. We got to number 3, and it was my turn to fall asleep on the couch.

I woke up with a start, to what I thought was my son screaming. OH FUCK!!!! And then my husband yelling. Well...come to find out he didn't scream that, what he screamed was OH BUG and my husband was yelling because. Kiddo was doing the dishes, up to his elbows in dish water, and this giant beetle came screaming out of the water and up his arm. Kiddo screamed OH BUG and started flailing around the kitchen like a mad man, and soapy water went every bunny humping where.

It was pretty funny though.

Had kiddo help us make the stuff for taco's and had them for dinner. Then just been dinking on line here. I do need to go to bed, my head hurts and tummy is upset from being so tired.

Till tomorrow people!!! Have a great Friday!!!!

That's my Puddles

This is Puddles. She is a pure bred mini daschound. Her color is called Brindle Piebald. her brown has black striped in it for the brindle, and the white with spots is the piebald color.

Last summer I reconnected with a guy I used to go to school with. We were pretty good friends. He remembered Gigantor even. Him and his wife have a few mini weinies, and once in a while they let them breed, then sell the puppies. Just get a bit more money. He posted the baby pics up on facebook and I started teasing with him.
Me--If you ever have a runt you can't get rid of remember me.
Him--You would want a puppy??
Me--Who doesn't want puppies??
(Gigantor and I always said we would never have another puppy, we were beyond that, and would only adopt older dogs)
Him--Well which one is your favorite.
(well I picked a couple, one that looked alot like Puddles that was already sold, and then Puddles)
Him--do you think your husband can drive to Flagstaff to meet me and my wife.
Me--um sure.
That weekend, hubby and Captain daddy drove to Flagstaff.
my friend asked Gigantor for a penny, he gave it to him, he then passed over Puddles with her papers, and some puppy food. Then tried to give Hubby a 2nd puppy that we could sell so we could pay to get our suburban fixed. We refused cuz I knew I would fall in love and never sell the darn thing. hehehehe

That is how we got Puddles last September. She turned 1 in June.

We didn't realize we were missing something in our lives until we got her. She is something else. We named her Puddles cuz it looks like she ran through a mud puddle and splashed mud all over herself. Then we found out her love of water. She jumps in the tub at least 5 times a day to play. She puts both front feet in the dog drinking water to get a drink, and if she's hot, she does that then digs in the water, so it splashes all over the place. When kiddo was changing the dog water outside and made some mud with the hose and all, we found out her love for mud too. Those times her name becomes Muddles. hehehehe

Her and Foxy get along darn good and play even. But her best friend, oh my gosh. Skinny K's mom has a red/brown mini weinie dog named Cephus. he is 6 months older than her, and when I go over there I take the two babies (Puddles and Foxy) and when she comes over here she brings Cephus. Those two (Puddles and Cephus) just love each other, they are the best of friends.

Well I have probably bored you enough with my baby talk. hehehehe

I'm off to bed. Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!!!!

Ouch yaaaawwwwnnn Ouch!!!

Can you believe I'm back two days in a row??? hahahhaa

Anyhow, what a miserable night last night. Gigantor could not get comfortable. On his back, on each side, with lots of ouch and oh shits in there. Pillow under the leg, pillow not under the leg, half sitting up, laying flat. When he fidgets like that I don't sleep, plus I was worried about him.

I did notice he was sleeping soundly this morning, and I looked over at him, and he was face down. His head was not turned to the side, it was straight into the bed. It was the worst possible position for his knee, but the only one he could get comfortable in.

Puddles (that is our puppy that we got last september) she is a brindle piebald mini wienie dog. Yup she is a character. I will see if I can remember how to load pictures on here and load one of her.

Anyhow, Puddles is like a big daddy's dog. She loves me and Kiddo, but she really loves her daddy. And she just worry warted him to death. Yesterday wouldn't leave his side. Last night after she stopped worrying all over him, she proceeded to try and push me out of bed so she could be the one to sleep with him. Today she has followed his every movement, not leaving him for a fraction of an inch all day.

I used to talk about our big white pointer, Buster, well poor Buster had to go be with Buck and grandma. He was 15 and it was only 2 weeks after we got the puppy. I sure do miss him though.

Well I have been working at reading you all. Hope to see you all drop by soon.

I'm out of here to go to bed. meds have kicked in and I'm feeling real happy and tired. hehehehe

Holy Shit Don't Faint!!!

Yes it really is me. I know you can't believe it. heheheh

I said I was going to take last summer off. Well things got away from me. I really did have to concentrate about me. I'm still having to do that a bit. But I think things are getting better.

Quick, and short run down.

Last summer, went to three funerals, got tired of people dying.
Went to our 20 year class reunion. I was always an outcast/nerd in school. I sat at the table with all the rest from that "click" and guess who had the rowdiest and funnest table around? Everyone laughing and having a good time. Yup it was our table. Pissed off the "popular" group that still hasn't let go of high school. I loved every minute of it.

I did water aerobics all dam summer last year. Worked my butt off, didn't lose a dam pound. Didn't even seem to tone up. It was so depressing, I could barely stand it.

Our suburban broke down, got it running again, but no a/c, and it was jerking all over the place. We poured over 500 bucks into the dam thing. This spring a guy from work got it to quit jerking, but we still have no a/c. In Arizona, IN THE SUMMER!!!! I try not to go anywhere till the sun goes down.

In Sept, we signed up with a debt settlement group. We were and still are just drowning. Hopefully in another year I can actually pay groceries and pay bills.

My sister if you remember her, she came out for Thanksgiving. It was kinda bittersweet. First holiday she spent with us since mom died. And then in January her divorce was final, and she moved into a house of her own. I'm not gonna say much more, not my place, hers if she comes back.

I struggled all through the winter with my health. I continued to see the doc every month. In March and April we started getting info from the insurance so I could move forward with lap band or gastric bypass (need lots of other stuff first) But....

In Feb, Gigantor's knee started hurting him way worse than it ever had. We put my surgery on hold, because he is the mobile one, the one working and taking care of this family. We started concentrating on his knee.

Just this morning my giant hubby went in for surgery. He is home and doing much better. He had a very HUGE tear in his meniscus. They sent home pictures of it, and ick. Poor baby.

My son graduated from 8th grade in May. Yup he is going to be in highschool this August. He has been a big help with me and now with gigantor being all crippled up.

He actually got a job this summer. He was/is working at his uncles taxedermy shop. Some people think ick, but we all think it's pretty cool, and what a neat skill to learn. Maybe he can stuff Captain Daddy when it's his time. hahahaha (sorry family joke)

Okay, I'm going to go, see if anyone drops by. I will try to get back at this. I'm slowly reading on some of you and commenting. Seems I have a lot of blogs to erase, cuz people have disappeared.
