Not Much, You?

As Freida Bee always says "oh yeah, I have a blog". I haven't meant to be lax but let me tell you the last two weeks have been beyond. Major shake up at work. Without going into too much detail, Republican Dude (RD) was doing an even worse job than I had originally suspected. So, careful what you bitch for, because I went from working 20 or so hours a week and setting my own schedule to full time and more, lately putting in 10 hour day averages. Man.

And then last Wednesday night I went to the emergency room with chest pains. I thought of Dr. Monkey, who was my age when he had his heart attack. I thought about mattyboy who went in last year for some chest pain issues. Let me just say that when a whole lotta people come rushing at you with little stickers and wires and machines that go 'bing', it can be pretty scary. I had to stay in the hospital until a little after 1 am. I sent Ben and the girls home at 9 pm and called a cab to get me. Thus far the conclusion is that it was some kind of a pulled muscle in my back or rib cage area. Thursday and Friday are vicodin indused hazes.

Here it is, Sunday night and I am tapping this out on my new laptop while I sit in my armchair. How cool is that? Just wait until we get the wifi router at our house, I'll take all you guys to bed with me. Or something like that. (I wonder if my hit counter will go up with that last statement?)

So that's what's been up with me. Sorry I haven't visited all y'all. I'll be around soon.

Love,

Jess.

I'm glad your chest pains were not heart related. Although it's never too early to begin eating better, i.e. less fat and more fresh vegetables.

Matty Boy said...

Good news about the muscle pull, Jess. Hope it goes away and you can stop taking the goofy pills.

DCup said...

I'm relieved to hear that your condition is not super serious.

Now here's hoping that your hit counter goes crazy with that whole double entendre thingy!

Sorry to hear about work. Damn that Republican dude. So typical, leave the clean up for the Democrat.

Sorry you've had all this stress! Glad that the chest pains weren't from your heart - a friend of mine once had the same thing happen, and it turned out to be a muscle pain too.

Bubs said...

Glad to hear it was a pulled muscle. When I had my heart attack scare a few years ago it was bad indigestion, and the doctor helpfully suggested I "stop eating lard".

Sorry to hear about the overwork though.

You'd break our hearts if yours was bad.
My cousin had some problems a while back. He has a new diet. Eat anything you want, but if it tastes good, spit it out.

I'm glad it was just a muscle pull. The exact same thing happened to me in 2005.

Glad this was just a false alarm, but you can't be too careful, Jess. Watch those ten-hour days, will ya? Try to take it easy.

BTW, while your immune system was compromised, you caught the splotchy story virus. Check my impeachment bloggy for details.

Relax, exhale, loosen the jaw and keep your fingers tapping those keys!

I think I should open a decompression spa for bloggers. Long soaks for tired fingers, cool compresses for over-taxed imaginations etc.
I know a few who sound as though they could use it.

Hey! Bubs stole my lard line! The best hazes are induced hazes...

Randal Graves said...

I think this was all a hoax so you use that hit counter line, you vixen.

Glad you aren't planning on croaking just yet.

(It's good to be known for something. ;)

I am sorry you went through the scare, but very glad it came out as such. Take care.

(BTW- I've been taking you guys to bed for a long time, now. Don't make me stop.)

HOLY CRAP WOMAN!

I have been behind in my reading and did not see this til now.

Feel better and milk your employer for all it is worth.

Hang in there - I am so glad that you do not have heart problems.
