The Story Behind My Sprained Foot

So after shopping all day on Black Friday, Miguel & I finally made our way home. We had tons of bags to carry & a huge (and I mean HUGE) wreath. I decided to become Superwoman, and carry like 5 or 6 bags, and the wreath all at once. Somehow, the wreath must have gotten snagged on the iron hooks on the mirror that hangs in the hallway. By the time that I realized it, and took a step back, the mirror (which weighs approx. 25 pounds), was on its way down to the floor, and landed on my foot. Yay for pain. I dealed with the pain until Saturday afternoon when I finally decided to make a trip to the emergency room. We drove an hour to my hospital, where they told me that I had a bad sprain. They gave me a boot to wear, and a set of crutches. Crutches suck! Anyway, they gave me a few days off of work, and I am feeling much better now. I'll return to work on Thursday. Posted by Picasa

So Now For the Update...

Since I haven't updated in a while, I'll go ahead and do it now. So happy belated Thanksgiving everyone. My Thanksgiving was probably the worst one I've ever had. I worked. Who works on Thanksgiving? That's right...ME. So I worked from 11 AM until 7 PM. The day was long, and people were coming in for the dumbest things. After I got out I went to Frances' house where everyone was. We stayed for a little while, and then we went home. Had to get a good nights sleep for the day I had planned on Friday.
Friday morning Miguel & I woke up at 4:00 AM to be at Best Buy by 5:00 when they opened. Yes, I am one of those crazy people who go shopping at the crack of dawn on Black Friday. So we made it to Best Buy, got just about everything we wanted. We shopped all day..and I mean, all day!

Picture of the Day

This was at the Dallas Arboretum on July 30, 2005. Doesn't Yasmin just look so peaceful? I love that I caught her being herself...thinking that no one was watching. Posted by Picasa

Sweet, Sweet Miguel

Miguel took me out to dinner at my favorite restaurant on Saturday night. (In case anyone doesn't know, it's Sambuca). Anyway, it was really really nice. I just love the dim lighting and the music.

Then, today while I was at work, I got called to the nurses station. When I got there, I saw a vase with a dozen red roses in it. Miguel had sent me flowers to work. They are soo beautiful! That was the first time that he's ever sent them to work, and it really suprised me.

Thank you so much honey. They are beautiful, and I love you!

What's My Disorder?

Okay, so I think that I'm optimistic...but not overoptimistic.

Overoptimistic. Okay, you're a prep. That's
pretty much it in a nutcase. Nothing is ever
wrong in your world, Miss America! It's all
butterflies and sunshine. It's just dandy and
perfect and yummy like honey-covered
chocolate cream-puffs! Kittens and puppies
and little birdies all roam around in your head.

What's Hidden Behind My Smile?

This one is so true!

Theres Nothing Hidden Behind Your Smile when you
smile you mean it. You don't try to fake your feelings
you let the world know very clearly if you pissed off, or
feeling the slightlest bit sad.

Harry Potter

Miguel, Nanny, & I went to see Harry Potter today. Let's just say that I was less than impressed. There was so much hype for this movie, and I expected it to be better than the other 3. They have been getting better & better, but this one...probably my least favorite of all. Totally not what I expected. Blah. Maybe I just need to see it again, but for right now...blah.

Picture of the Day

I think that this is my favorite picture of Yasmin. She looks so innocent here. This was taken on September 10 at Erland's 4th birthday party. I was just messing around taking pictures of her, and told her to look up at me & smile. I had already taken so many, that Yasmin didn't want anymore, so she gave me her half smile. Posted by Picasa

What Do I Hide From the World?

Hmmm, not sure if this one fits...

Pain hides within you. It truly does hurt.
You feel traped away from the world as they
hurt you more and more. You dont like to cry
in public, but when you are alone tears fall
down your face and it is uncontrollable. You
love the moon and sometimes you just wish

you could be on the moon away from all these
people who hurt you.

"They have hurt me so much. I only wish they
could know the pain they have inflicted upon

.:Your Power:.
Chrono. you control time and all its beauty. You
freeze time, fast forward it, and rewind time.

What do you hide from the world?

Thrice Concert

So I will start out by saying that the concert was good. This is the 3rd time that I've seen Thrice live, and it was a good concert. Not great, but good. Danny went with us, and Megan went with a friend.
The show was at the Granada on Greenville Avenue in Dallas, which is much closer than most of the other shows that we go to which are downtown...but we still got there late. Doors opened at 6:00, and we got there at about 6:45. I guess it didn't help that we stopped to eat, or that the parking lot to the venue was full, so we had to park like 4 blocks away, and walk.
By the time that we got in the doors, the 1st band was already halfway through their set. They were Veda. Pretty good...for having a girl in it. Not to go off on a tangent, but I really don't like too many bands that have girls in them. I'll leave it at that. Anyway, Miguel bought their album a few weeks ago, and it's okay. They were pretty good live too.
The next band up was The Bled. Hmmm, didn't really like them too much. I really don't remember much about them...except that the lead screamer would sometimes rap his screams.
Next up was Underoath. I had never heard them before tonight, but Megan was telling me that they are a Christian band. That's all good and well, but I couldn't understand a word that they were "singing", because they weren't singing, they were screaming. I don't mind a little bit of screaming, but when every word of every song is screamed, it just doesn't make any sense to me. I actually really liked their music, but the screaming has got to go before would listen to them again. They were the freak show band. They had some different people in the band. The lead singer was this skinny anorexic looking dude, the keyboard guy looked like he was burning his fingers on the keyboard as he was playing (sorry Miguel, I stole that from you). Danny & Miguel said that there was this really short dude also, but I didn't see him, and then the bass player was a giant. Freak show band. I didn't really enjoy them much.
Finally, last up came Thrice. The played a pretty good mixture of songs from their old albums and from the new one. They played awesome, but I think (and this is just my humble opinion), that the new songs sounded awesome, and that the older songs didn't sound quite right (except for 2 of them, which were great). I also felt that all of the musicians were starting slightly off, and the beginning of a few songs were off. They eventually caught up with each other, but it took a minute for me to realize what song they were playing. Miguel doesn't agree with that. He thinks that they did awesome, and so does Danny. I guess maybe you should listen to them considering they are both musicians that play multiple instruments, and I don't play anything. They played just about all of my favorite old songs. After the show was over they came out for an encore. They played 2 more songs. The first was just the lead singer by himself playing an acoustic guitar. It sounded really nice. Then the rest of the band came out for the 2nd song.
After the show was over we had to walk back to the car, which wouldn't have been so bad...if the concert were last week when the weather was in the 70's. It was cold. After we got into the car, it took us like 30 minutes or more to get out of traffic and onto the highway. It took us longer to leave from there, then from the shows in Deep Ellum. Once on the highway, we got stuck in 2 sets of traffic. Sheesh, we couldn't seem to get a break tonight.
After dropping Danny off at his car, Miguel and I decided to go and eat at IHOP. We kind of have this little tradition...after each show that we go to, we eat something. So, the show ended at like 10:50, and we ended up getting to IHOP at 12:30.
Off to bed I go, now that it's 2:00 AM. I need my sleep for the Harry Potter movie tomorrow. Yes folks, we have pre-purchased tickets to the 11:30 showing of Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire.

Caroline Update

So, I actually did call Caroline to wish her a happy birthday. We got to talking for a little while. It turned out really nice. I found out that she is a 3rd grade teacher. I always knew that she would become a teacher. She says that her family is doing well, which is good to hear. I think that I will probably call her again sometime next week to catch up a little more.

Happy Birthday Caroline!

I haven't talked to Caroline in probably about 7 years or so, but today is her 22nd birthday, and I wanted to wish her a happy one. We were friends a long time ago, and I am actually thinking about calling her (assuming her phone number is the same from back then), to let her know that I remembered.

Thrice Concert Tonight

Tonight s the Thrice concert. I am excited about it, but not nearly as excited as I was fr C&C. I like this new album, but I don't think that it is as good as the last few. The show is at the Grenada in Dallas. I'll have to let you all know how it turns out!

What Obslete Skill Am I?

This quiz is the most right-on one yet! This is totally me!

It 's comforting to say that 'practice makes perfect'....
You are 'Gregg shorthand'. Originally designed to
enable people to write faster, it is also very useful
for writing things which one does not want other
people to read, inasmuch as almost no one knows
shorthand any more. You know how important it
is to do things efficiently and on time. You also
value your privacy, and (unlike some people) you
do not pretend to be friends with just everyone;
that would be ridiculous. When you do make friends,
you take them seriously, and faithfully keep what
they confide in you to yourself. Unfortunately, the
work which you do (which is very important, of course)
sometimes keeps you away from social activities, and
you are often lonely. Your problem is that Gregg
shorthand has been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

Picture of the Day

I am going to start posting a "Picture of the Day" from my collection of photographs. They aren't going to be anything with great technique or anything like that, but still, it's a photo that I enjoy!

Rough Day at Work

It seems as though anytime that I post about work, it has something to do with the fact that I had a really hectic day. Not to your surprise or mine, I had a really hectic day at work today.
The day started off really slow, which was really nice. In fact, it was so slow that I didn't even have my first patient until 8:30. That had never happened to me before. I was convinced that the day was going to be awesome. I even had a student following me around, which makes it nicer, because they can help you out some and do errands for you.
The day was going pretty well until about 12:00. All of a sudden, things got bad. I don't know where everything fell apart, but it did. It wasn't only me who was busy...every single nurse was.
We had some really sick patients in today. Miguel tried to call me like 3 or 4 times, and each time I had to rush him off the phone because I was so busy.
I left work feeling like I never got anything accomplished, got home really tired and just physically drained from all the running around I did today. I just finished taking a nice hot bath to help relax me, and I will be going to bed soon to have wonderful dreams, and wake up tomorrow morning to do it all over again.
I love my job, and I think that you have to, because I don't see how anyone could do this job, and not have a passion for it. Goodnight everyone!

Yay, Nanny's Here!!

I am so happy that nanny made it here safe today. She said that the flight was a little rough, but overall it wasn't that bad. Nanny checked in 3 pieces, and when she was at baggage claim, she only got 2 pieces back. She was missing her brand new walker. Hopefully the airline wil find it soon, and send it to my mom's house. Nanny looks just as good as when she left 5 months ago, and I know that this visit with us will be wonderful!

What Does My Conscience Look Like?

Scary results today folks! Am I really like this?

Your inside is vengeful.The pain that you have felt
is causing your inside to go beserk and inflicting
everyone around you.You hate people who take
your kindness for granted and you think that they
should pay. You think that you should be the one to
do them over.

So I see that lots of people are doing the quizilla thing on their blogs, and I figured that I would be just like everyone else. Great goals that I have: be like everyone else. Anyway, if I can figure out how to get it to work, i'm going to post one every day until I get bored of doing it. Could be tomorrow, could be next year...or it could be after I've done all the quizzes.

Hectic Day

Well, today I had a pretty hectic day at work. We were so busy. I barely got a lunch break...if you can call 20 minutes out of a 12 hour shift a lunch break. I realized when I got home, that I never even used the bathroom today! I don't know what was so special about today, that everyone got sick...but it was bad. I don't want anymore days like today. I am really looking forward to the next few days off!
