Week in Review

So it's been exactly 1 week since I last posted. I don't think I've ever gone that long. But it was a very busy & long week! I was in bed by 8:30 almost every night.
Saturday- John took off work and we spent the day together. We went and had breakfast at our favorite diner. Went antiquing where I found my next piece of furniture I really want but don't need. We went to Michelle & Brandon's wedding. It was beautiful.
Can you believe I forgot to get a picture of John & I together. I was pissed 'cause he had on a green dress shirt that matched my scarf. It would have been a great photo. We went to see the movie "He's just not that into you". It was hilarious. We really liked it. This lady brought her 4 year old with her. The little girl was sitting one seat over from John. At one point in the movie someone called someone a Douche Bag, the audience laughed.....then silence....and that little girl said, "Mommy, whats a douche bag?" OMG....we all laughed again. It was so funny!

Sunday- John went to work and I went to church. We were meeting friends to go eat Italian when John got off work. In the meantime I was worried about Tori driving home from Missouri so I "busy baked". I tried out a new recipe. Sweet Potato & Cheddar Cheese Cookies. Holy Moly need to try these. They are amazing. I found them one day looking at food blogs...I came across Vanilla Sugar and love her pictures and recipes. Her blog is amazing! Go there for the recipe. You won't be disappointed!

Monday- After work I drove to the girls house and picked up my dog, Reeses. Meg was at work. Tori was home and offered to cook me dinner but I was afraid to stay to long since I had another 55 minute drive ahead of me and I was already sleepy. So I declined and made it home at 7:30.

Tuesday-I put a roast in the crock pot before I left for work. Tori came in for dinner. After she left John & I caught up on Grey's Anatomy & Private Practice.

- I went to see the doctor because I have been having pain in my neck & hands. Also, my headaches have been more severe the past 2 weeks. I thought it was stress from my job situation. But the pain in hands got worse. Long story short I had a car accident back in messed me up pretty work 5 months, messed up my neck and back. I have degenerative disc disease. I was told back then that eventually I will have to have surgery. I'm going to see my neurologist March 16th to have a nuero-conductor test done. To see what nerve is damaged and to see if it is for sure my neck or maybe carpel tunnel. I was prescribed a muscle relaxer to help relax my shoulders to ease the pain. Of course I can't take it until after I get off the bus. I did take one this night, met John at the Mexican restaurant, then went to a skating party. I didn't last long in there. By 7:15 we had to leave. I was sleepy and the carpet was tripping me out. Psychedelic!

- Date night. We ate a Crossroads...a true southern buffet restaurant. Came home and I watched LOST since I feel asleep the night before trying to watch it. was the best one yet!!!! I had a package waiting for me on the porch. It was the giveaway I won from Betty in Paraguay. How exciting!! The wooded utensils were made from wood from the Paraguay Forest. I love the duck at the handle. This colorful doily is absolutely beautiful and yes, Betty I think I will put that in my black bathroom. Thank you, Thank you, Betty!!! You made my week! This package couldn't have come at a better time. Thanks for cheering me up!!! I love every thing. Oh, and I will e-mail you if I need a recipe translated from the calendar.

Friday- I updated my status on Facebook while I visited a few blogs. I was fighting sleep by 7:30. I gave in and went to bed.

Each day was a little easier than the previous. I'm getting use to my schedule. I hope to be back on my old routine next week. The one where I actually stay up and not fall asleep on my poor husband.

Today is my cleaning day. Every other Saturday I do all my heavy cleaning. I'm going to visit blogs off & on through out the day as well. I have had major withdrawals this week...I feel like I missed out on a huge party or something.

I think before I start cleaning I'm going to go wake up John and take him out to breakfast before he has to go to work.

Awwwe, that´s sweet! I hope you had a good breakfast together!
It´s tough getting used to a new schedule and I hope you do better next week.
I´m glad the package arrived and hope you like the CD as well!

Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! I loved them so much, and I get so many requests to make more.

Oh I hope your headaches get better. Yuck.
I have bad headaches and acupuncture really helps me. Plus I take 81mg of aspirin per day.

Hubby and I match when we go to weddings too! ;)

Sounds like you have been one busy gal! Oh, and that photo of the cookies? Yum! Makes me want one, or perhaps eight!

Hope everything else is going well for you! Have a great weekend! :)

Wow, you weren't kidding about being busy. And muscle relaxants on top of the exhaustion, no wonder you hit the sack so early. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Becky said...

You have been busy! But at least it has been with mostly good things:) I haven't been able to keep up with my blog the same way either!
I know how it is with those darn headaches. I have another appt with my neurologist next month. They have tried ever kind of med on me, and nothing seems to help. They are a daily pain.
Congrats on winning your prize!

Sounds like a great week except for the pain in the neck:-)
