Oh, I got a brand new pair of roller skates....

And my mom gave me HER KEY.
Her actual, childhood skate key...

I think I'm going to have it silver plated and wear it.

How friggin' cool is that?!?

Belly Achin'

Hubs got through his surgery. Luckily, it was only a double hernia. Hopefully he'll be back to fucking me proper in no time.

That is all.

It's Official

I'm Jenocidal.
Thanks to all for your input! It really helped me decide.
I just hope I can live up to my evil moniker.

Silly Christians...Brains are for kids!

That is all.

More than a year and five doctors later....

Went to the new urologist yesterday. That doc immediately made a fit-in appointment for him with a surgeon. That doc told us that he has double, possibly TRIPLE hernia. He has an MRI on Thursday, then is scheduled for surgury on Monday. Apparently, the pulling of all his junk is what may have caused the prostate to blow up like it did. The doc said he's giong to take a look around during surgery to see if there are any other issues.

During the visit, when the doc was telling Hubs all of this, I could see a wave of relief washing over him...he had been screaming all this time and someone had finally heard him, and is going to do something about it.

After Monday, they expect he will be off work for at least 2 weeks. This will be the first time since Blaine was born that he will be OFF on Thanksgiving.

Everyone can still put in their 2 cents on a derby name, below....

A little help, Bloggers...

These are the possible derby names that we've come up with so far...now I need to narrow it down. My favorites are starred*. My first choice, Bipolar Roller, was taken. BUMMER. I've checked the registry (no, I'm not kidding, there's really an official list) and all of these are still available:

  • Apocalypse Cow (Now, Hubs, thats just mean)
  • Indy Psychward*
  • Justina Brawl
  • Calla Doctor
  • Justa Psycho
  • Manica Depression
  • Jenocidal*
  • Jenetic mutation
  • Jeneration X*
  • Psychorella*
  • OnALotta Meds
  • Mia Psycho
  • Mia Loco
  • Elixir Vitae
  • Rocky Bipolar *
  • Mistress Mania
  • Misfortune Cookie
  • Mistress Lobotomy
  • Lithium Lil
  • Jenuine Psycho*

I liked Blog Ho for a derby name, but its already taken, by, you know, Blog Ho .

Now cast your votes!!

Hubs goes to a new doc in the morning...hopefully we'll get some good news and he'll get some relief.

Sarah! Come to bed!

The last few days have been emotional. With Hubs being in pain, me having a horrible chest cold, and the likelyhood of a wake in my future, I have broken down and cried several times.

My Grammy, who turned 100 in July, will probably die very soon. It was a goal for her to hit 100, but now that she's done it, she's lost all her spunk. All she talks about now is going to see Grampa Homer, that is, when she's not sleeping.

I'm sure we'll be going to CA soon, to see her off. We don't like to call them funerals in my family...we celebrate the lives of those we've lost, and usually throw one hell of a party. Hers will be memorable, to say the least.

When we were little and stayed with my grandparents, my Grammy would always stay up after everyone had gone to bed, cleaning up and having some quiet time alone. After a little while of hearing her softly shuffle through the house, we would always hear my Grampa's booming voice break through the quiet, calling to her. "Sarah! Come to bed!"

It never failed that she would answer him, "Hold your horses, Homer, I'm coming!....Your feet better not be cold!"

I will miss you you, Grammy. I am so grateful to have you in my life. I'm am most grateful that Blaine got a chance to know and love you, too.

Not again.

I took Hubs to the ER yesterday morning. He has acute prostatitis.

I have never seen him in so much pain. He actually shook from it. I was so thankful when they gave him a shot of demerol, the doc commented that it was as much for me as it was for him. He is now on pain meds, anti-inflammatories, and antibiotics.

This is the second time he has been struck down by it. And we still are looking for a doctor to give us some answers as to why. The last time, the antibiotic course was almost 3 months! He has a lifelong history of kidney stones, and they think there may be a connection. It is usually caused by a back up of a UTI into the prostate, but he never presents with symptoms of a tract or bladder infection prior to it, literally, bringing him to his knees.

He has been poked, MRI'ed, CAT scanned, and ultrasounded. He has pissed gallons, and had quarts of blood drawn. But still they don't know what is causing it. He has an appointment with another urologist on Tuesday. I'm am wrought with worry...I hate to see him suffering, and so frustrated.

Proud parent of a kid "Under The Influence"

Have you heard the most recent crock of shit to hit the airwaves? A PSA, paid for with your tax dollars, spewing the evils of independent music....

Listen to it here.

Hat tip, bmarkey.

Just so you know....

I just dropped off a carload of kids at the movies...

When they all piled in, I noticed a peculiar scent...so I inquired, "Who's wearing perfume?"

One of Blaine's friends piped up, "It's Baby Phat...it costs, like, $50 bucks!"

Just so you know...it smells like THIS.

The Woodnymph

You can't see the wings very good, but they sure were cute! Not bad for a $2.00 thrift store purchase...just cut strategically and add greenery...
