Vacation in . . . . .paradise?

Ello there! Takin a gander at me page now are ya? LOL That was my best attempt at a brittish accent. Let me explain why I would even try!

I was at the Walgreens today waiting patiently for some doctor pharmacist communication and I ran into a person from my past. His name is Adam Bringhurst and he was my 5th grade "boyfriend" Ha ha. Those were the days! Anyway. . . . we were catching up on marriages, divorces, and babies when Caydance tried to climb her way out of the back of the shopping cart. (I don't know if you have been informed of her hobby as a daredevil and stunt double?) I picked her up and held her (35 pounds just doesn't sit as easily on the hip as the little ones!!!) Adam said "You look JUST like your mommy you know that?" We get this alot, alot, alot.

I hear that she acts the same, looks the same, even has the same mood swings! Ha ha!! But today for the first time in a while both of the girls got a HUGE "JUST LIKE YOUR DADDY!!"

Both girls had a cough and runny nose for a while so I decided I would take them to the Dr. I expected a little cold, or a sinus infection maybe. Boy was I wrong. . . . . . *sigh*

Caydance has . . . . . . DRUMROLL PLEASE. . . . . . an ear infection, an infection in her throat, and allergies. (I've never had allergies you see. Not the seasonal king=d with the sniffling and sneezing and those big red puffy eyes. But Daddy Brad has them like crazy.)

Now for the shining star of the day Athena has. . . . . . A small sinus infection, allergies(see above), Empintigo(not sure about the spelling on that but it's these big nasty boils on her skin, which it turns out is genetic to be susceptible and guess who else had it!?!?!?!?!) And to top it all off ASTHMA!!!! She has this sad little breathing machine called a nebulizer that she has to use 3 times per day.

Man. Gotta love those inherited traits LOL! Wish me luck.

College......probably a good idea.

Wow. It's 2:30 in the morning and I can't sleep a wink. There was a party at the pad tonight and I had a blast. Crystal came to hang out which was super awesome and even Kevin and Heather made appearances. I got to make 'sand in your shorts' which is my favorite drink! I saw quite a few old friends and played some fun games.

Then somewhere after that it turned in a totally different direction. As I'm typing this my intoxicated friends are having VERY deep conversations. It starts with natural born talent vs. hard work in relation to success. After that they touched on astrophysics, evolution, medical experimentation, and literature.

In moments like this, I wish I went to college earlier. Or maybe read more books? I have absolutely nothing to contribute to the conversation. I suppose I deserve credit for being interested? For caring about these subjects and wondering about all the other things in the world that I don't yet know exist.

I'm out of my Vulcan mind!

For all that have seen the Star Trek movie, wasn't that the greatest line? Hilarious! Anyway. . . Because I am a GENIUS I added an awesome widget to the bottom of my blog! I can update it at a moments notice with my cell phone and it posts here and on Myspace! Woot!

You see, it turns out that mobile blogging is not so awesome because it limits my post to 140 characters. Which is 2 sentences in Kayleigh speak. So this widget will make thing a billion times easier. Plus it's just super trendy!

That damn Murphy!

All was well on Monday at my physical. But of course that would have been too easy! I guess because I'm broke Murphy's law came into effect on Tuesday and gave me Tonsilitis! So that meant another copay. . . . . another prescription! Grrr. But I'm glad the pain of it will be over soon. My right tonsil is so swollen it looks like I gained ten pounds in my neck! And the horrible sore throat lead to some accidental weight loss so wooo hooo! LOL

I start at Comcast on Monday. I'm pretty excited to get started onsomething new. It seems like something I will enjoy. Even if I don't love it it'll still be a million times better than what I have now.

Super dad says my car will be ready by the end of this month. I can't wait! I keep telling Richard that my left foot gets bored driving his car. And being able to sleep until 7 again will be a welcome return to the norm.

Starting with myself

My pledge to help keep others from a preventable death would mean nothing if I didn't also do it for myself. So first thing Monday morning I headed to the Dr. for a head to toe physical with special attention on my fondly nicknamed "Izzie spots".(I miss her already guys!)

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, A few months ago I got some salmon colored spots on my abdomen. I'm not going to lie, skin cancer was on my mind. I mean. I'm not a tanner but I've had some major burns in my time. And I've been scared to have them checked out. Nobody wants to get bad news, but bad news later might have been devastating news.

Well at first the Dr was a little concerned. After careful examination it was determined that I have Pityriasis Rosea. In lamens terms this means "your skin changed color for no good reason and will return to normal in a few months." So in the mean time I look like a leper but I'm healthy!

All other reports were good. He's slightly concerned I might have a galbladder problem but with the problems Amber had I told him I don't want to persue anything until I feel like it's a problem. He was ok with that. Also, it turns out I'm almost 5'4'' which is freakin awesome! LOL I guess I never really knew how tall I was.

Well now I need to go plant shopping with Grandma B. Love you guys!
