06:16 pm - sick sick sick
So, I love 4th of July and what happens to me? I get SICK! Not just a little sick, sick to the point where eventhough I have no medical insurance I made Sal take me to the E.R. Yeah, it's that bad. I started with a sore throat/ear thing Wednesday and bought some Tylenol Cold Day/Night and cough drops and figured that would get me through. Thursday I felt like shit but took my drugs every 4 hours and got through work. Same thing Friday and Saturday (except I lost my voice Sat. morning). Saturday night I could hardly swallow my own spit (gross I know) and my ears hurt and my head hurt... then my eye started bothering me, kinda sore/itchy. Well I woke up this morning at like 4:30 am and couldn't open my left eye.. it was sealed shut with yellow pus (even more gross, i know!). So I woke up Sal and told him I think I need to go to the hospital. He called my parent's house and woke up my dad to ask his opinion.. considering we have no insurance, we wanted to be sure this was necessary. My Dad told Sal he def had to take me, you can't fool around with a oozing eyeball and a throat that was basically closed up. So 5 am we're in the E.R. My favorite place to be. The doctor came in, examined, left. The nurse came in, moved me to a room by myself for a breathing tube treatment and gave me some meds and a shot for the inflammation in my throat (my arm STILL hurts!) and then left while I said breathing through this tube hooked up to an oxygen tank. And by the time she came back, I honestly felt better, not 100% but I could swallow without forcing it. Then the doctor came in and gave me 5 (yes 5) prescriptions- anitibiotics, eye drops, pain pills, cough syrup with codine, and an inhaler. And then we were outta there by 7 am, my shortest ER stay ever! Came home, got in bed and Sal went to fill my prescriptions (which cost $200!!! oy vey!) And now here we are... I feel kinda crappy, but better, eventhough my eye is gross as hell. At least I just have to get through work tomorrow and then we're off Tuesday and I can rest up some more.

05:07 pm - got a new j-o-b
so this morning i had to travel to Short Hills for an interview and i was nervous as all hell but i did it with some great words of encouragement (thanks again Ker, Nic, Len and Sal!). got there an hour early, but i had to pee like whoa so i went in anyway and actually was able to get my interview early! it went great and she asked me if i had plans for the day and i said no, so she said she'd like me to go to the branch i was interviewing for and meet the manager. so i got back on the parkway and went to Wall and met the manager. she was super friendly and i left there feeling pretty confident! i decided to have lunch with my hubby so i picked up a sub and went to the shop. i hung out there for about an hour and then went to the mall and shopped! i figured i'd need new stuff if i got the job (to celebrate) OR i'd need new stuff if i didn't get the job (to cheer me up).. it was a win-win! so i get home and there's a message waiting for me from the human resources lady and she offered me the job! i accepted of course! and i start of May 8th! now i have to write my letter of resignation and give my 2 weeks. *sigh* i'm gonna miss my hudson city girls, but its time to move on and make more money. we figured it out (sal and i) and i'm going to make about $250 more a paycheck.. that rocks my world. go team me!

05:39 pm - home sweet home
finally home from the hospital. five days is too many there. by the last day, no lie, i thought i was going to go insane. my "roommate" the last three days was a white trash bad mouthed whore from South Toms River or Gilford Park. literally. she was insane, her family was insane, she had NO respect for the fact that hello we are in a hospital because we are ill. it's not a goddamn vacation. her fuckin' cell phone rang all hours of the night, she sprayed stank ass perfume at like 3 am, turned all the lights on in the room (again in the middle of the night), THEN had the audacity to moan and groan THE moment a nurse came in. fuckin' liar. i am glad to be home, but still feel pretty icky. i think i can go back to work wednesday or thursday. then i have to go see dr. raso in 2 weeks and set up a colonoscopy. the fun just keeps on coming.


mom's surgery went pretty well. talked to her yesterday when sal bailed me out- she sounded looped, which is understandable. she's in a lot of pain. i can imagine 4 screws being inserted in your spine doesn't tickle. they want to send her home today or tomorrow. i hope they wait though. philly isn't close enough if something happens. we'll see.

04:12 pm - Oh man!
Italians are short- tempered. Scotchmen are stubborn. Jersey girls are plain ol' crazy. Seriously. I'm on my way home from work (it's about 8 miles) and from the moment I turned out of the bank's parking lot it was insane. First, I'm making a left onto 571 and the car on the opposite side of the street is going straight (towards me)- so I start to turn because I see an opening and the other car starts to go.. avoided collision ..1. I'm still on 571 and crossing over Route 9 (where 2 lanes merge to 1) and this enormous pick-up truck with a trailer is right next to me- and we begin to merge and he's not letting me go.. he tried to force my little car into the opposing lanes of traffic.. avoided collision ..2. Now, I'm by High School North and stuck behind this old lady in a Kia, so I move into the left lane to pass her and the car in the left lane hits their brakes, I swerve back into the right lane and continue to be trapped behind the Kia.. avoided collision .. 3. Lastly, I'm past the mall, about 2 minutes from home and the road merges again.. the left lane is for turns and the right lane is going straight- well, someone realized the were stuck in the turning lane and cuts me off with centimeters to spare, I slam my brake and... avoided collision ..4. Now, please don't be crazy and think I took all these instances like a sane person because you would be SO wrong. I went Jersey on their asses.. fingers were flying, horns were blaring, profanities were spat. It was bad news man, bad news. I'm not leaving my house until Tuesday when I go back to work.

09:44 pm - Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
I can't say I am really "in the Christmas spirit" but I am happy it's almost here! I have totally finished all my shopping and this weekend we are going to try to decorate, amongst the million other things we have put off until this weekend. And last night was the first real snow...I hate snow. I really should move to another state.. where there is no snow.. no hurricanes...no tornados...no earthquakes. Is there a state like that? And if so, point me in that direction!


Work still sucks my ass. I am just waiting it out though.. the job with the state is still an option, but it's just taking longer than expected- I'm like on a waiting list or something. And there is no bank hiring right now.. locally anyway. I posted my resume on Monster.com, and I apparently qualify for tons of shit.. in Ewing or Trenton or Parsippany. Yeah, I don't think so. Just have to be patient right now.. and in order to do so, I have decided I am cutting way back on all the shit I take care of at work. Because you know what? When I'm not there someone else is going to have to do it.. let them get used to it now. So now, I do what everyone does.. very little.


In other news...my birthday is next month :-) The big 2-4!

08:34 am - So...
Yes, I've been MIA for a while. Mostly because of the wedding, which was amazing and wonderful and a total dream come true! Then the honeymoon and that was fantastic! Hawaii was so beautiful! I wish we could have stayed even longer than our 10 days! Kauai was my favorite- so so pretty and much less touristy. Maui was cool too, but way more touristy and crowded. We had a great time, got lots of pictures. We got home Friday morning (the 21st) and have been trying to adjust to normal life. Yeah, that got interuppted though because Monday night Sal had to take me to the ER. I had severe stomach pains and thought it was just a Crohn's flare-up, but it was so bad I needed some pain relief. Last time this happened and we went to the ER they drugged me up, wrote a prescription and let me go... not this time. I was admitted and spent 2 days in the hospital. Long story short- I had a viral infection in the lining of my stomach which froze my intestines (that's what caused the pain). Sounds fun right? Thankfully, I was able to come home yesterday afternoon and was ordered bed rest until Monday. So, that's where I'm at.. so if you don't hear from me, it's not because I don't like you, it's because I'm on drugs and in bed.
