That’s how long I was at work today. Dealing with staff issues (very productive) and outbreak of Scabies. Gross, huh?

Sometimes I wonder what a “normal” job feels like.


Leah and the bike September 11, 2007

Filed under: Happenings — daizey @ 8:24 pm

Back in May, for her birthday, Eric and I bought Leah a bike so she could come out riding us. By June she hated it because, despite the training wheels, she fell off of it too much (especially the time she went around the big corner, didn’t make the turn big enough, hit the curb and went flying over the handlebars and nearly into the river. I nearly thought she broke her leg-and yet, what was my reaction? Yes, I laughed. oops. I am clearly not ready to have children!)

Anyway. By June she was ready to sell her bike, but we told her no. Finally in August we went out, got her knee and elbow pads-and some nifty gloves and taught her how to fall if she had to. We worked and put the screaming girl back onto the bike and surprise! Once she realized how NOT to fall, she was loving riding.

So I took her out today and she was riding pretty well. Stopping every 5 feet, but well.  Halfway through the ride, one time when she had fallen over, she bent her training wheel all the way up so it was facing the sky. She didn’t realize until she asked me what I laughing at. So she said, lets take them off! So, we got back to the house, took them both off, I warned her it would be a little harder, and she took off! The girl rides better with out the training wheels than she did with them! She didn’t fall at all.

It was a proud moment. And I’m not even her mom. Even still, I was so psyched for her! I almost wanted to cry (almost). I guess this is good practice for someday when I actually am a mom!

Alright, off to read bedtime stories. Goodnight!


I hate today.

This day sucks. Although it is nice, as this is the first time that I am not in NY for September 11th-nor am I in college anymore so I won’t be forced to attend any memorials or anything like years in the past. Perhaps that’s why I have such a resentment towards the day. I dunno. Hopefully I can at least escape it at work.


Updates! September 10, 2007

Ok, so it’s been like, 2 months. Ooops.

First lets start off with the most important thing since the last post: Harry Potter was AMAZING! So amazing, in fact, that I am re-reading the entire series now to pick up on all the little clues here and there and watching each movie as I am done with the book. I am already 1/4 of the way through Order of the Phoenix and hoping I can finish it before it is no longer in theatres! I will need to write up a full on review of it soon. Oooh that could be a new category: Book Reviews. hmmm…I do read an awful lot (and so much Harry lately that I dream that I’m fighting Voldemort in my dreams lately!)

Ok, so more Harry later. For now, lets go back to what else has been going on in my life. Hmmm, how about my stomach! Yes, lets go there. So, as you know awhile back it started with heartburn, then acid reflux, then suspected appendicitis, then more reflux (speaking of which I am having some now). So, it was jut not getting better and I started vommitting and I looked and found some blood. Joy.

A week later I was up at the surgical center getting ready to have a tube shoved down my throat. I got to be sedated yippee! Between the deadtion and the demerol I was out for a good portion of the day. At first they said that they did not see anything but they did see some discoloration and they took a few biopsies. Returned to the doctor to find out that my stomach lining was mostly all gone and that I was in fact recovering from ulcers. My meds were uped and I am suppose to be weened off of them over the next few months or so.  Stupid Doctor. Had we just done this procedure in the bginning I woulda probably been fine now.

In other news….well, not much else is going on. I am working hard at sitflying, and I am closing in on 200 skydives-yay! My canopy, however, is sucking right now andit needs to be sent into PD for a reline before I break my leg (or butt) since it is just not flaring the way it used to.

Really not much else is going on. I am a bit depressed  since not much in my life seems to be going the way i would like at the moment-and the start of the school year has come and gone and I am still without a teaching job 🙁  However I did pass my Praxis II with flying colors so that is good at least.

I am joining the local YMCA  as I need to lose some of the weight I have put on. It has been going well so far, but I haven’t been able to go muc, but I am hoping to be able to get back into it this week or next.

My family is coming out to visit on Friday, which is cool. Danny is moving into OSU this weekend. I think he is pretty excited. And I am excited to have him here and my parents visiting.

Oh! We got all new furniture! I  need to post some pics of it!

Well thats about it for now. I do need to finish updating this thing. I changed the whle layout and now I need to add some info to my pages as well!

More later-and not in 2 months I swear!
