Another weekend... can you all believe we are nearing the end of the year?
I'm about ready to get rid of 2014 - that's for sure. It hasn't been the best.
But another weekend whizzed right by... (& now I'm afraid of what kind of traffic I'll get to my blog using the word "Whizzed")...
Here's a quick glance of my weekend
... Went to the doctor on Friday about my pain in my side. I'll do a post on it tomorrow. Preview: I'm going to live. At least I woke up today. That's all anyone can ask for, amen?
... If you follow me on Instagram, you all know what I did on Friday. Held on the phone with the health insurance company FOR-EV-ER!!! I was bored doing it so I made little videos on Instagram showing how Harvey felt about it - how Bruno felt about it... & the miracle of all - I had my phone recording when they answered... I felt like I ran a marathon.
|This is near my half marathon time|
... I'd rather have been out running... with a painful side
... All that waiting? & the woman was USELESS. & MEAN! She yelled at me. Seriously, yelled at me. I told her my card wasn't right & it should show I pay a copayment for a doctor's visit - her words to me were, "Why would you want to pay a co-payment. Isn't it better you don't?"... I asked her if she really thought 10% of my deductible would be a better choice, as it shows on my card. This woman didn't have a clue what she was talking about. Finally, after about 20 minutes of her yelling & saying, "We were supposed to be out of here by 7 & we're all still here because people are still calling in" (really?) I told her, "Ma'am - I have been on this phone for 2 & a half hours - I'm frustrated to. Let's just try to figure this out together"... she FLIPPED OUT ON ME. I just had to laugh. In the end, I found nothing out. It was a waste of my time. .... & the funniest part, when the call was over, I stayed on to hear & she said goodbye & then I heard, "If they don't let us get out of here soon, I'm going to loose my mind. This place is hell"... someone was having a bad day.
... Ricky had to work on Saturday. That usually means I get my house cleaned. Not this time. It meant I got some wrapping done.
... it also meant I slept. I was so mad because I woke up with him at 5:30 & couldn't go back to sleep. So I had breakfast, got some things done ... & then around 8, I fell asleep again. I never do that. I slept until 10:30. I felt so guilty telling Ricky who was working out in the cold.
... I found out later that my new anti-inflammatory medicine causes drowsiness. I don't handle medicine well. I'll probably be in a coma like state for the next few days.
... Got to watch Women of the Bible on Lifetime... loved it. That was the fastest 2 hours. I wanted more. I still have to watch The Red Tent. I loved that book.
... Watched all sorts of Christmas movies on ABC Family. Usually love every movie on there, except I watched Prancer (never saw it before) & feel like that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back. That girl in the movie was so whiney, I thought if I heard her cry one more time, I was going to throw my roll of tape through the TV. & Sam Elliot, who has always been my man-crush is in it... but he's a jerk the whole movie. Just ban this movie.
|I prefer a smiling happy Sam Elliot|
... I still honestly love Home Alone 3... most sequels are stupid. Especially the more you get out in the number. Example: Jurassic Park 23 ... but if you haven't seen this movie, it really is so cute. & I was shocked to see a young Scarlett Johansson as the sister.
... We had our youth Christmas Party. These kids are just so much fun. People who are willing to have others build a gingerbread house on their face? They are my kinda people.
... White Elephant Gift exchange with teenagers can be scary. I'll just say, Ricky came home with a jar full of organs. Granted, they were fake organs. But they look very real.
... I fell asleep with a towel on my head Saturday night. Woke up with my hair all sorts of crazy... & can't find the towel. What the hey? Did I eat it in my sleep? Did Harvey Dent eat it? A mystery now needs solved.
... I so love small group with the youth kids. We hardly ever stay on topic, we always end up talking about the funniest things, & we learn WAY too much about each other... exactly what I think middle school small group should be.
... Ricky & I were on a mission to get Christmas shopping done after church. We were out for about 7 hours... & I think I only marked 2 people off my list. Help me Baby Jesus. Time is ticking away.
... My home looks like a disaster hit a disaster. Tis the season.
So how was your weekend?
Is your house a wrapping nightmare?
Do you have a jar of organs sitting around your home?
