chock full o' happiness

I don't know about you, but I am a bath-taker. And as a bath-taker, I can tell you with great confidence that there are no better bath goodies than those from LUSH. I came home a couple of weeks ago after having some really depressing cases at work, and my LUSH drawer was EMPTY. Empty I tell you! The shame.

So I immediately ordered a new stash. And one lovely day this week, it arrived, happiness in a box:

Do yourself a favor. Order some Butterball bath bombs. Your skin will thank you.

(P.S. It's all hand-made, natural, fresh stuff too. Of course.)

Lessons I learned...

whilst in the ER (where I went for some pretty severe abdominal pain, and no worries, I'm much better now!)

1. Don't drive yourself. (This was my bad. Didn't occur to me to have someone else take me...). I couldn't even stay in my lane or drive the speed limit the whole way. Oops.

2. Have an ambulance take you. Kinda goes with #1, but seriously, those people get treatment immediately, rather than waiting around in excruciating pain for hours!

3. Try not to roll your eyes when your doctor tells you that you're "kind of" in the medical field. Gag.

4. Get insurance that doesn't have a pricey deductible for ER visits. I guess that's what I get for choosing a plan because "when am I ever going to go to the ER?"

And that's basically what I learned. I guarantee I won't be going back anytime soon, no matter how much pain I'm in. Besides, my tool of a doctor gave me painkillers for next time.

Long lost love.

I had all but given up on this blog, but lately I've been missing it. A place to post the things I'm into of late.

So, here I am. I think I'll get going again with Week In My Shoes: Round 2. I'm pretty positive I can be consistent now that I have this iPhone thing (that I drop on tile/leave around the hospital a couple times a day).

For an idea of how this will go, here's an example:
Approximately 12:06am, Sunday night. Sporting a pretty sweet hospital gown in the ER (where I was placed in the decontamination room. That's a whole other story).

I know, you're jealous.
What you should be jealous of is my super awesome big brother who came to hang with me into the wee hours of the morning even though I got so bored I made him perform divergent categorization tasks for fun...yeah, you totally want to be my sibling now, right?

I thought so. Stay tuned for lots more posting. Promise.

All my friends are leaving me.

This is Stephanie. She is my friend.

She is joining Ashley in Amarillo soon.

This makes me sad.

(But cool picture, right? It's an app I'm playing around with on my new iPhone...)

Maybe becoming Oklahoman is a good thing!
