Turkey Day Highs and Lows

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 22, 2012 @ 10:34pm in Car Issues, Family, Holidays, kitties, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans! Hope you’ve had a nice day, hopefully with good food and friends/family. My day was one of those good and bad sorta things. Good Thing Love got up early this morning and did the 5k Turkey Trot. It’s a huge race they do in Clearwater (like 15,000 […]

Another Halloween Gone

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 1, 2012 @ 10:38pm in General Blather, Grief, Holidays, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Well, I was actually going to finally try and get back into Halloween a little this year. For so many years, it was wrapped up in traditions with our friend Rand, from carving pumpkins to decorating his house, to dressing up and handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters from his house. When he passed away […]

It’s All About the Money

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 11:43pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more. The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54 I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. […]

Oops

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 @ 6:02pm in Family, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Walt Disney World |

Has it really been a week since I wrote an entry? Sheesh. Here’s a quick recap. Saturday, we went over to Disney for a few hours to catch an extremely early “Dress Rehearsal” of New Fantasyland. See, they’ve been building a new expansion to the park for years now. It’s the largest expansion ever in […]

Lost Tuesday

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 @ 4:29pm in General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Poor Love was extremely sick yesterday. I was out at the post office and the supermarket picking up dinner when he got home after work. He proceeded to vomit pretty much non-stop for the next two hours. It was awful. Finally, around 7:30pm he finished being sick and pretty much passed out in bed and […]

Tilt Table Results

Posted by miss m on Friday, August 31, 2012 @ 12:49am in General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Briefly, because I need to get to bed, Love had his tilt table test. I thought it was going to be multiple movements, crazy angles, etc., but it was just them strapping him to a table then tilting it to 90 degrees to simulate standing. The idea is that people tend to lock their knees […]

Continuing Vertigo Saga

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 12:28pm in General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love was at the Neurologist on the 20th again to see if his increase in migraine meds helped. It hasn’t. So now the neuro isn’t even sure it is migraines and wants to try a few other things. First up is a tilt table test with a cardiologist. It was originally scheduled for last Thursday […]

The Tale of the Power Window Regulator Assembly

Posted by miss m on Sunday, August 19, 2012 @ 11:10pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love |

The power window regulator assembly is this bow-looking bit that controls the power windows on a Honda Element. Looks like this: The problem with this part is that there’s a little plastic bit on it that tends to, well, break. And when it does, it loses all tension and the window falls down completely into […]

A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 @ 3:53pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

…but I’m chatty, so here’s pictures AND words. Mom’s birthday was last Wednesday the 8th, and we were going to get together at my sister’s on Saturday for a birthday party but Mom wasn’t feeling well, so we did it on Sunday instead. My sister had some technical problems with the grill (i.e. it didn’t […]

Life Updates

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 @ 11:22pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

With all the focus on my blog about healthcare following my CNN.com article, I haven’t had a chance to update what ELSE is going on in my life lately. So here’s a bullet-point rundown. Love’s Dad was in the hospital again. Last Monday, July 2nd, he went to the ER late afternoon with severe pain […]

Downtown St. Petersburg

Posted by miss m on Saturday, June 2, 2012 @ 9:15pm in Entertainment, Freebies Discounts Deals, Love, Photography and Pics, Travel, Weather |

This afternoon, we braved the intense June Florida heat to head to downtown St. Petersburg. I wanted to walk around and get some photos with my new camera. And since Love really loves the area, it seemed like a win-win. Of course, it was INSANELY hot and it even rained briefly (like 5 minutes worth) […]

Holiday Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 11:30pm in Blog, Car Issues, Entertainment, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

Been quiet around here the past few days because it was a 3-day, holiday weekend. Today (Monday, May 28th) is Memorial Day and a Federal holiday so most companies are closed, including Love’s. (Plus things like banks, post office, etc.) It’s also considered the “unofficial” start of summer here in the US. People BBQ and […]

This, That and The Other

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 @ 11:21pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, M's Birthday, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love & the Neurologist Yesterday (Monday the 14th) Love had his follow-up with the neurologist. Turns out the CT scan he had done a few weeks ago was perfectly normal. See, Love has this “whooshing” which kinda pulses in his right ear. Had it for years. But, when the whole vertigo-turned-out-to-be-migraines attacks started a year […]
