Dear Diary Thursday....

Update on sickness: Wednesday was bad. I woke up in the middle of the night with the pukes. They finally went away by about noon. The pain was gone but I ended up feeling very weak and with a bad sore throat. Today, still have a sore throat but with a bit more energy.....All of the other symptoms are gone.

Speaking of today, I spent last night and all of today carving all of the pumpkins. Tomorrow morning I plan on delivering them, putting the final touches on the decorating of the house, making dinner, and then spending a relaxing evening at home handing out treats. Dylan is planning on coming over and hanging out for a little while, as that is our tradition. Then Saturday, I am spending the day with Dylan. I am sure I will not be that much fun as it is going to take me awhile to get all of my energy back. If I could just get rid of the sore throat, the ache ears, I would be GREAT!

Oh, and can I just let you all know how happy I am that tomorrow is HALLOWEEN!!!!! And it is shaping up to be a very relaxing one as well!!! I plan on doing my blessing this evening for everyone and their families. Know that you are all in my hearts, in my minds, and in my blessings and I wish you all a spectacular Samhain!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

Let's just say that I have come to truly appreciate being PAIN FREE. Let me explain...

Yesterday morning I had ANOTHER light in my vehicle come on. This one telling me my engine coolant was low. I drove in to work and refused to allow it to ruin my day. I had a great day at work until about 2:00 pm, when I started to get a very bad sore throat and just feel "achy". I left work and headed to Saturn, where they topped off the engine coolant and my car is all better. By the time I was home, I was so completely in pain in all of my muscles and joints that I could barely walk. I was also freezing. I took a hot bath...did not help. I crawled into bed under two electric blankets and four quilts.....did not help. I took Nyquil.....did not help. By 1:00 am this morning I could not take life anymore and called in sick to work. By the time the folks got up, I was crying in the most pathetic fashion you can imagine. I was actually begging to be taken to the ER....that should tell you the pain I was in. My dad headed to the pharmacy and the pharmacist said that they are seeing a "rash of this flu" vomitting or diarhea for some people but the pain is very intense, along with freezing.....which is exactly what I was experiencing. I have managed to take 5 baths today and one shower. My body hurt so bad that the couch, a chair, nor my bed felt comfortable. After finally taking some Tylenol Flu and Excederin Migraine, the pain has subsided. I finally managed to get some toast down me and this afternoon, a tomato sandwich. Unfortunately, I guess all the pharmacist said I could take was Tylenol, Dayquil, and Nyquil. Thankfully, I am feeling much better now and am exhausted. I have been crawling onto the couch and catching 15 minute naps, going to my room and catching 15 minute naps, and I think I have napped partially during the writing of this. Top the crappy day off with worrying about Connie made for a miserable day. I was actually even considering cancelling all of my Halloween THAT should tell you how sick I was.

Oh, by the way, only 3 more days until Halloween....

Dear Diary Monday...

Okay, I honestly almost let a couple of bad experiences this morning color my entire day....but I OVERCAME! It started when ANOTHER light went on in my car, but I fixed it as soon as I got to work. Then I come in to a very rude and abrassive e-mail from a marketing rep, but I handled the situation and will be forwarding the e-mail on to her superior, as it was totally unacceptable. After those two intial bad setbacks, I took a deep breath, asked my Goddess for inner peace and it was given. Thank the Goddess I had a good head on my shoulders this morning or I would have been kicking some marketing ass! Plus, I have had four cups of coffee to get my morning going at full throttle.

Oh, I picked up a new set of Oracle Cards on Saturday and I have been enjoying them immensly! They are Animal Oracle Cards and they have been giving me some much needed direction. If you need to find direction, who better to go to than the Goddess and some animals!!!!!

?? Which Angel Or Demon Are You ??

Dear Diary Sunday...

It was a good weekend. Friday, I dropped my car off again to have it fixed. This time they discovered it was the thermostat and it took them until Saturday to fix it, which was fine with me since it was under warranty. Dylan and I drove up to Park City, we went to Thanksgiving Point, we had dinner, we called it an early evening because I had a headache.

Saturday, we met up with the Netzlers and Chet and Shane to see "Scary Movie 3" which was only worth seeing due to the company I shared, no more is needed to be said. Dylan and I then went to pick up my car, went to dinner, went to Fashion Place, went to Dahles, went to Fred Meyers, headed back to his house and watched "28 Days Later". It was nice to be busy but enjoy the pace.

Today I went shopping with my mom. We hit Wal-Mart, Petsmart, and Costco. We then came home and I did a couple of loads of laundry and then went to dinner with the folks. I am now doing a couple more loads of laundry and trying to do some relaxing.

It has been an interesting month and I have had a lot on my mind. I have watched a number of my co-workers and friends going through some "trying times" with their husbands/significant others and it has given me a lot to think about. Here, I share my thoughts:
1) if you get bored with your sex life, is that reason to end a relationship? I totally understand when you need to do something to spice it up and maybe you feel that the other person is just so involved in their own gratification that they don't seem to be interested in yours, but shouldn't you talk about the issue??
2) when is it time to forgive and forget? if something extremely horrible happened in the past, do you need to allow it to colour the remainder of your relationship? do you keep trying to talk about it and work on it, or is there a time to just give up and move on to another relationship?
3) if your significant other seems to have "habits" that are detrimental, to you and themselves, do you look past it, do you talk with them, do you leave them, do you give them an ultimatum?

Oh, and only 5 more days until Halloween.....
