Sad Day!

As most of you already know, today two icons passed away. Micheal opened a lot of doors and really defined what a pop star was. Choose to remember him as the person he was before all the allegations and court cases. Farrah's poster was on every young boys wall. Her hair was known all over the world. I know death happens everyday, but it is crazy to loose to icons within hours of one another.

Crazy Week

I was looking forward to Cinco De Mayo, since I had the day off. Until I woke up and could not move my neck again. That's right this has happened before and the doctor said it was a pulled muscle. Well this time I started treating it the same way, and it was not getting better. So off to the doctor I went on Thursday morning. He shocked my muscle, and told me it was in a huge knot. He gave me some muscle relaxers, and a patch to wear on my back. It's better but still tight.
To top off the week, I came home last night to find a strange letter. It was from the United States Court system. I opened, and found out I have jury duty for federal court. It starts the same day as my week and a half vacation. At least I have the weekend off!

Baby Watch 2009!!!!

This day has been filled with babies! Around 2 p.m. I received a text from Donna. It was a picture of baby Abigail, letting me know she has graced the world with her presence. Than around 8:30, I received another text. This one was a picture of Josh holding baby Tripp up for everyone to see. So now ,two women who have been the best of friends almost their entire lives, have two beautiful babies on the same day. It is just the coolest thing. So congratulations Christie, Josh, Melba, and Druce on two cute babies. Also a big THANK YOU to Donna Ann for keeping us all updated on these special deliveries. She was a nervous wreck all day and had to take two finals too.

P.S. Congrats to a very special friend on her exciting news!!!!!

As all of you know today is the last day for taxes, and guess who has waited to the very last and I do mean last minute!? ME!!!! I e-filed my return yesterday, but there was an error. So for the last 45 minutes I have been goofing off on the computer, while on hold to speak with someone at the IRS. HEHEHEHEHE!!! I put the wrong amount for my AGI for last year, and am waiting to see what it really is.
I know what you all are saying. "That's what ya get for waiting till the last minute." In my defense I spent the first month of tax season in transition. Than the second month was spent moving into my new apartment, and unpacking. In the middle of it all, I managed to lose my W2's. So here I am on the very last day sitting waiting for a human to just tell me the small amount of money I made last year. Lesson learned, next year I'm hitting up H&R Block!

Learning to Fight the Flu First!

As my friends know, I always get the Flu around this time of year. I can remember going to nationals, and being so sick that I could not get out of bed after competing. However this year I decided to wage war against this nasty little sickness!!! My boss talked me into getting a flu shot back in the fall. We give them at work on one Saturday during the fall, and it's free with my works insurance. However, it took her all morning to get me to do it. I always believed that the virus was live, but I learned that it is dead. So you will not get the flu, by just getting the shot. So far so good, no flu.
However, sickness is once again going around at work. So, today I stopped by to talk to the pharmacist at work. My question to him was, "What's the best thing to fight the flu, or flu like symptoms?" Now, you must picture this. I was standing behind the counter reading all the locked up over the counter drugs, wondering which was the best. To my surprise he suggested Sambucol. It was created by a virologist, and it has been clinically tested. Sambucol is a black elderberry immune system booster. Basically a dietary supplement. However, he told me that elderberry extract boost your immune system, and taking it as directed will decease the days of your flu symptoms in half. Well, I thought why not, so I bought it. Just in case you are wondering, yes it taste awful, but in the end it will be worth it. I am not getting sick this time!
