I shouldn't be surprised that I'm up at 3:37 trying not to throw up.

I'm in the midst of an anxiety attack.

I'm actually amazed that I've done so well with all the stress and chaos since we moved from Key West, it's just that I've really poured myself into work and let that keep my mind busy.

This week my mind has taken over again... a friend has had to make a very hard decision and I am one of her only means of support.

I've also been picking up some slack at work, which would normally be fine but my health hasn't been the best lately... I fainted at the bank last week and when I weighed myself last night I'm down to 124.

Fortunately I have a doctor appointment set up for this coming Monday morning, to get checked in general and in specific to see if there's anything we can do to try and have kids show up.

It doesn't help my nausea much that Scott just burned a bag of popcorn.

EXTRA Love Day

Scott had to work Saturday morning and I closed the store Saturday evening. When I arrived home around 10:30pm I was anticipating some macaroni and cheese for a late dinner.

From the moment I opened my car door in the garage, I could smell that there was something happening in the kitchen that was a bit more than macaroni and cheese.

Scott made me home-made ravioli, complete with home-made filling and a butternut squash sauce.

It was fantastic.

Happy Valentines Day to ME!

Love Day

Happy Valentine's Day to those of you that appreciate this sort of thing.

Since Scott is working this morning and I am working this evening, we decided to celebrate our love yesterday by having dinner at Red Robin (we got to use our two free milkshakes cards finally) and then a romantic candle-lit game of Scrabble. Scott toasted me 225 to 147 before we both got sleepy and decided to call it a night.

This is our first Valentine's day as a married couple.

Here's to many more!

Spreading the Virus

I'm not usually one to propagate the popularity of a viral video, but this one is too funny not to share.

Checking In

I've been working like mad crazy since Tuesday. Opening shift Tuesday, Thursday and Today, and then the 6am truck shift on Wednesday. I work two to close tomorrow and then work again on Sunday.

The only inspiration I've had today is that I'm really hoping the details work out for my two best friends to come visit us in May, via my frequent flier miles.

Stupor Bowl!

I'm off today and tomorrow, which is a welcome respite from the chaotic schedule that has run me ragged this last week.

I slept in today and then cleaned the master bedroom a bit, unpacked a few more boxes, hung a picture and tried to figure out a good place for the jewelry hanger I took so much time to create.

There's not a suitable wall in the bathroom unless I hang it on the back of the bathroom door, but as we are renting I don't want to put a hole in the door. I don't want to hang it on the wall in the bedroom as it would detract from the decor (or what there is of it... it would certainly detract from the fabulous decor that is in my mind) and there's no room in the closet.

I poured a bowl of cereal only to discover that the milk had gone bad yet again. After the last round of rotten milk I turned the thermostat on the fridge a bit colder, bought the milk from a different store and put the milk in on the shelves instead of in the door. I don't know what the problem is.

When Scott got home from work we were both hungry and craving Pizza and Coke/Diet Coke but as we are lacking in the financial department we had spaghetti and iced tea instead.

Neither of us really care who wins the super bowl today, my favorite teams are the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks so I am less than interested in the Steelers and the Cardinals.

I have always enjoyed the festivities and the commercials though, and have prepared myself to nap/read/crochet during the game.

Oh the excitement.
