Vampire Lovin'

What's up Y'all.

Tonight is finally here!!!!! Ohhhhh it's so wonderful! It's the Season 2 premier of True Blood on HBO! Ohh happy day!!! I'm so excited I could pee myself. I can't wait to see more vampire lovin' and drama. How can anyone not like this show? Now Dexter just needs to come back on and all will be right with the world. But, alas..I have to wait until this fall to see the return of my favorite psychopathic, serial killing, criminalist! But, I digress.

Jonathan is my True Blood roaddog. I told him that he better be here by 9pm or ELSE. I know that we will have to watch it back in my room b/c my step dad has the den wired with booby traps anytime anyone tries to use the T.V. in there. And I don't feel like loosing any fingers or toes tonight when I try to pick up HIS motor controller. (I kid, I kid..but seriously, you'd think we were trying to steal his kidney or somethin'.) So this brings me to a slight dilema. My room. It looks like a crime scene. The afertmath of a tornado. An earthquake. I have to clean :-( I can't have anyone back there to watch t.v. in that mess. Gahhh! I hate cleaning more than anything. SO I guess that's what I'll be doing the rest of the afternoon.

Last night I watched the movie Gran Turino with Clint Eastwood. Normally I'm not a big Clint Eastwood movie fan. But, when I saw the previews for it, I immediately wanted to see it. So, last night when I saw it on movies on demand, I bought it. It was pretty good. I recommend it. I give it 4 out of 5 O2 tanks!

Okay. I'm off like Paris Hilton's panties!

Bipappin' it!

Hello, my loyal followers!!

It's Friiiiidayyyyyyy, bitches! Not that I have overly exciting plans this weekend. But, you know. I can still get excited about Fridays. Even if I don't work or go to school during the week. So, bite me! :) I guess I will go down to the pool this weekend. I'm a bit worried though b/c the last thing I want is to get more sunburn. I'll have to put on a 70 SPF sunscreen or somethin'. Like mentioned in my last blog post, I'm STILL peeling from the sunburn that I got from the beach. Now my legs are peeling too, not just my arms.

So, today I went to the walk in bipap clinic at Lincare. I needed a new mask b/c mine is falling apart. When I was at my pulmo. appointment the other day, my Dr. told me to ask Lincare about possibly switching out my bipap machine. I told her that when I was in the hospital I didn't have any sleep episodes and that I was using the hospital's bipap machine. So, she suggested that maybe the reason why I'm still having them is because my machine is messed up. So, today I asked the respiratory therapist about it at Lincare. He checked my machine and said everything was working properly. THEN, he told me something that both excited and disgusted me at the same time.

He told me that there is a special bipap machine called an "auto bipap" and it basically does the same thing they do during a sleep study at the sleep clinic. I was FLOORED. He said that it, of course, doesn't monitor the brain stuff but it does monitor the changes in your breathing while you sleep. So, in other words, it SHOULD be able to show what the hell is happening to me when I have these sleep episodes! It was like music to my ears. I was so excited. But, then I got a bit annoyed. No, more than a BIT annoyed. I got very annoyed. EXTREMELY annoyed. I had asked more than once in Chapel Hill if there was not someway that we could monitor me in my sleep from home. The answer was always NO. That I HAD to drive all the way up there and stay the night in the sleep clinic hooked up to all that crap in order for them to see what was going on while I slept. Now I'm pissed that I had to go through 3 sleep studies to find out absolutely NOTHING. When I could have just stayed home in my own bed and slept more comfortably, which would have probably gotten better results. So, I emailed my doctor and told her about it and asked her to fax an order to Lincare so I can get the ball rolling with this home sleep study via autobipap. I pray that it works well enough to find out what the hell is going on with my breathing at night! Keep your fingers crossed!

Aside from that news, there is nothing else to report.

I hope you all have a lovely, exciting weekend. I'm off like a prom dress!

Shedding is for the snakes!

Hey Y'all!

I hope everyone is well. It has been quite a while since I wrote. I just haven't really had the urge or been in the mood. Sorry to have left all of you hangin', waiting for a post. I'm sure you were all checking and rechecking the blog constantly, waiting impatiently for a new post to arrive. HEHE :) Just kidding! That's what I've told myself at least. :)

Nothing new is going on really. I do have a slight bit of good news to report. I have lost 1 lb. YAY! I'm on my way to shedding my lardassness. Speaking of shedding, I am looking like a snake shedding it's skin these days. After nearly becoming a 3rd degree burn victim at the beach, I've been peeling like hell. It started like two weeks ago and it hasn't stopped yet. It's driving me crazy. It makes me feel freakishly unnatractive. Like I could be an act in a circus freak show. "Behold the Amazing Shedding Woman!" It's ridiculous! When will it end???

On a good note, the pool is now officially opened for the summer. Yay! So, now I can go swimming. I plan on doing some walking in the pool with Mom and Charm. Hopefully, that combined with the treadmill will help me to lose some of this weight. Mom and I attempted to start pilates also. It was insane. My knee wasn't right for DAYS afterwards. LOL. Oh, to be young again and limber. And to not have 7 pins and a plate in your knee and pin in your hip. Ohhhh..Memories! :)

I had an appointment with my pulmonologist in Chapel Hill last Wed. It went well. Thats how I found out that I lost a lb. That was the best news I've heard in a while. Everything else checked out good. She even complimented me and told me that I looked great with a little extra weight on me. She said that I looked sexy and voluptous, like a real woman! :) Well that's good, considering I'm almost 29! :) HEHE. After the appointment Mom and I stayed for support group, then went home.

Sunday, I went to the zoo with my friend Nate, his wife Susie and son Jonathan. It was fun. I took a lot of pics of the animals and spent a crapload of money on simple things like drinks and snacks. But, it was worth it. The only bad thing was that I got a little sunburnt again. Oh well. Shit happens.

Today I walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes. I ROCK. Then I was so tired, I promptly laid down and fell asleep for an hour and half until dinner was ready. I've been so tired lately that I've been napping a whole lot.

Gotta go. Here's to me getting THE call soon! Later y'all! Enjoy the pics below!
