For those of you who personally know me, please DO NOT send any emails to my yahoo email account. Someone requested a password change and I am trying to get Yahoo to help me get into my account. Unfortunately because it’s Sunday and a holiday (Happy Easter by the way) I shouldn’t hear anything until tomorrow. I will let everyone know what happens and if I have to close the account, I will let all of you know how to get in touch with me.
Wish me luck.
I have come to realize today that life sucks.
Okay, so here’s my problem: I pinched my sciatic nerve in September 2007, got tendonitis in my left hip because of the pinched sciatic, had the nerve pinch so bad in February that I could barely walk and was facing the possibility of having a bulging disk in my back, but was put on some good meds and the pain seems to be receding, I’ve had a cold for the last 7 days and now I think I have pink eye for the first time in my life. I haven’t been around anyone with pink eye and have absolutely no friggin’ clue as to how I could have gotten it. I didn’t see my doctor today because the redness in my eye went away a little and a nurse (who is one of my regulars at work) looked me over and said that I don’t have pink eye, but now it is back. I haven’t gotten a good night’s sleep in I don’t know how long because of the stupid, friggin’, god damn cough that keeps me up all night because every time I cough it feels like my lower spine is trying to rip out of my back. I’m hoping that I don’t have pink eye because I’m a cake decorator and cannot take anymore time off work, but I might have to since pink eye is highly contagious and I work around food.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY everyone!!!! I remembered to wear my green today, did you? This is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate even if I don’t drink very much (and I can’t today because of prescription drugs, damn). I don’t even know why, but wearing green today is the only superstition I have. I tell people it’s because when I was about 7 or 8 years old, I decided that I was going to try my luck on not wearing green on March 17th and then I fell down half a flight of stairs. I have wore green ever since. I even go to bed the night before wearing green so that I wake up with it on so as to not try my luck with those sneaky little leprechauns.
One of my favorite memories on this day was back when I was in kindergarten and the teachers wouldn’t let us in the classroom and wouldn’t even tell us why. When they finally let us in, the chairs were overturned, green glitter everywhere and then there where little green footprints all over the room, even on the ceiling. It was fun.
So remember to always wear green and keep an eye on your gold. Those pesky little leprechauns might try to steal it.
For the last few days, all the news seems to be showing is Gov. Spitzer and the fact that he had sex with someone other than his wife. Okay, to all the reporters out there, you’ve said it, it was morally wrong, he has apologized, he has resigned, please for GOD’s sake move on to something else. You people are making it sound as if the woman he saw was underage or something and you are also making it sound like it was Ashley Dupre’s fault that he cheated on his wife. It was HIS choice and they are consenting adults. She offers a service to anyone willing to accept and can afford it. She probably makes good money at it as well.
I understand that it was illegal to bring her across state lines, and that is where he broke the law, but you don’t have to show this story every 15 minutes. Back off and let these two go their separate ways. And please, please, please, stop making her sound like a monster. Like I said, I don’t know her but nobody deserves the attitude this country has given her or anyone else like her. Give them a freakin’ break.
I just saw on the Today Show on NBC that there is a family who’s 17-month-old daughter is reading. It was amazing. They showed her some cards that her parents hadn’t seen and she read every one of them, even the one where Ann wrote “baby” in cursive. The parents said that they believe it is because they show her sign language videos to help her learn to sign. I’ve heard of babies that young being able to read “cat”, “dog”, “bat”, things like that but not sentences like “Good Morning, Ann” or “Throw the ball”. Even when her mom picked her up and set her on her lap, the little girl would say, “I want down.” I’ve only heard children of her age say, “Down” or throw a fit if they don’t want to be on anyone’s lap.
I just wanted to share that story. It’s amazing how children will amaze us each and every day.
Wow. For once in my life I have a blog other than that on MySpace. In case anyone is wondering why I chose Caitlyanna for my name on here, it is a combination of two of my favorite names: Caitlyn and Anna.
