My March Tree is hot right now! Featuring beautiful blue aquamarine gemstone chips (the birthstone of March), it’s the perfect item for a lady with a March birthday.

16 Weeks

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 @ 11:54am in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

I had to go back and count because I hadn’t been keeping exact track lately but today is 16 weeks since my hysterectomy. That seems like such a long time ago. But in many ways, it’s very recent. I think I’ve finally reached a point where the aches and pains part of the healing are […]

Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, January 23, 2012 @ 12:31am in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I spent most of Friday just in a serious funk. Kept crying because of the damned collection letter. It’s like, why even bother trying to be responsible and pay everyone off if I’m just going to get screwed over and ruin my credit anyway? Everything is stacked against you as the debtor and they make […]

Collections

Posted by miss m on Friday, January 20, 2012 @ 5:51pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So, even though the debt started as $1,200 and it’s down to $930 and I’ve been paying every month, apparently the “fact” that so long as you pay they can’t send you to collections is an urban myth. Every single person I’ve ever talked to both in person and online said just pay it each […]

Quality of Life

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 @ 8:11pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Yesterday, I shared the Assumptions people make about me based on their preconceived notions and health care expenses. Today, I’m expanding on that topic to Quality of Life. Besides “knowing” all the money I obviously waste on doing my nails, having a fancy new car, buying iPhones, etc. people also have other “helpful” suggestions about […]

Assumptions

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 @ 8:20pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

One of the worst parts of my “I am ObamaCare” images going viral is the asinine assumptions people make. Honestly, it’s just absurd the things people will say. I get some people don’t agree with the Affordable Heathcare Act and while I can’t fathom why anyone thinks our current system is working, it’s their right […]

Bisy Backson

Posted by miss m on Sunday, January 15, 2012 @ 12:22pm in Family, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Been so busy this past week with recovering from my food poisoning/ER trip and Love’s surgery Thursday. The anti-nausea and anti-diarrhea medications they gave me made me dizzy. The anti-nausea one is normally prescribed for people going through chemo! I wasn’t allowed to drive on the meds and I had to take them for 3 […]

Saturday Rest

Posted by miss m on Sunday, January 8, 2012 @ 12:49pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I got more than a little overwhelmed on Friday when the links, emails, mentions, tags and hits just flooded in. It was crazy. So Saturday, Love and I took a day completely off the interwebs. We took a drive over to Orlando, talked, walked around, window shopped, people watched, had a burger, watched some fireworks […]

The Face of ObamaCare?

Posted by miss m on Friday, January 6, 2012 @ 1:08pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

How crazy it is to me that my “I am ObamaCare” image has gone so viral. Especially three months after initially posting it! The other day, it made it’s way onto MoveOn.org and today, it’s on DailyDot.com You can read the article here. I’m amazed and excited to find my simple image is making such […]

2 Drink Kinda Day

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 @ 10:36pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues, Work |

Unfortunately for me though, I don’t drink. Yes, I hated my day job. And no, I really didn’t want to go back but that doesn’t mean the way things wound up doesn’t leave me really low today. Going to get my stuff, I felt like I was being punished. I felt demeaned as my former […]

Fun Monday But Dreading Tuesday

Posted by miss m on Monday, December 5, 2011 @ 11:19pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues, Work |

Normally Mondays are the day no one likes. But today, I hung out with my Mom so it was a good day. We went to the mall and shopped and browsed and tried things on and just generally had a nice time. Found a pair of capris and a pair of shorts on clearance and […]
