I'm home and other ramblings...

I've actually been home for a little over a week now. Sorry I didn't updated sooner, I was workin' hard for the money (lol!) and getting reacclimated to real life..because everyone knows that (semi) vacation life and real home life are 2 entirely different things. Even spending money is different.

So, update on my Dad. He was supposed to have the surgery on Friday (the 18th) but on Thursday evening he had a little episode where he got really queasy and dizzy and you could see he wasn't well. All the color drained out of his face and nearly his whole left side went weak and numb. at first it hought h had a heart attack, since he's in for heart problems and all but thankfully no. They thought he might have had a stroke or a mini-stroke but he didn't. They had to cancel the surgery on Friday until they heard back from the Neurologists. So they cleared him and rescheduled for first thing Monday (the 21st) morning. I spent Sunday with and then Monday with him. He was still out cold and sedated when I finally had to leave (7 hrs after surgery was complete). They released him just last Saturday and he is staying with friends until he can do more for himself.

Getting ready to leave...

Just sitting up here tonight finishing up packing and tying up loose ends. Good news is that I am taking my DH's pocket pc with me so that I can check email and use messenger. So at least I wont go completely insane.

I don't know why but I am always nervous about going places by myself. Even though I've flown several times, i always like to have someone with me until I get settled. Im always afraid Im going to get stuck or screw something up, silly I know.

I have a friend who I haven't seen in 2.5 yrs picking me up so that will be nice to see her again.

I better get my butt in bed though.. gotta get up early and get outta dodge.

Long time No blog.. lots to tell.

Wow, it's been awhile since my last blog. I've had alot going on over here the last few weeks.

Next, a bit of not so great news. My dad went into the hospital last week for heart problems. They found out that he has 12 blocked arteries, 3 of which are bad enough (2-80% and 1 100%) to require a quadruple bypass. So, tomorrow I am flying out to New Jersey for a week. He'll have the surgery on Friday and then I leave on Tuesday to come home. I am not sure how long after the surgery he will have to stay in the hospital and recover. So, I may be leaving before he is released.
Anyhoo... I will be back online next Wed. I won't have any internet access while Im gone as my dad is severly behind the times LOL. I also, wont have a new product to release for next week either so that kinda sucks. Hopefully I'll come home with some fab new ideas though.
See ya laters!
