In conclusion I would like to congratulate Rachel on her last day of work and a second interview, tell Jo to stop trying to kill me in my sleep, say a prayer for my monitor that was manufactured in 1996 and to my brakes which are worn down. Sigh. I hate money. But I love Jesus and hot tamales, so it all works out.

I don't know if you exist or if you read my blog, but let us just say you are and you do. I have a hankering for some batting cage action. So I think you need to get some courage (liquid or otherwise) and take me to the batting cages. Assuming you aren't creepy and unbiblical I think it could be a good start to something beautiful.
Your slugging sweetheart,

Subject: hi kids
I am SO STRUGGLING TO THINK CLEARLY . mY BACK AND LEGS HAVE NOT BEEN THE SAME SINCE I WORKED ON/FOR THE PIE BEE BACK IN AUGUST. SO dOC tWIDDY HAS ME BACK TRYING gABAPENTIN A MEDICATION I WAS ON PRIOR TO THE BACK SURGERY. HOWEVER...i AM HAVING TROUBLE TOLERATING IT. tHREE PILLS WASway to many and so is two. One at night does not seem TO HELP MUCH, AND SO i TOOK One at breakfast time, and now at noon I am sleeping and now I am still loopy. I say crap!
I think i will go back to taking one at night, but not this evening so i will be ok when you are home Laura.
Seems i am just not cut out for the long term standing, which kinda cuts into my shopping...grocery as well as others. I am SO GLAD I have the handicap parking thingy. The less steps taken the better.
Well I guess I will do some painting this afternoon til my head clears. Johnny, I will have to get Laura to set up the camra thing on the computer so you can see how the "grocery shopper" painting has come along. I have finished working on the parking elf at Christmas at Persqui'le. It looks good and Iam contemplating (big word for the way my head feels) having it printrd up into greeting cards.
I love you guys.
Be good, Christmas is coming (especially in Trenton where they are already putting up decorations) and Santa is watching!

In the freezer there is some pasta. Karmyn has labeled it as hers. The marker used to label it is starting to come off. When I glanced at it I thought it said Larry instead of Karmyn. Then I thought in my head that Karmyn should change her name to Larry the Apostle.
Yeah Stewie...good one...go back to bed.

I might also feel that he is an attractive man and should he become one of my profs he would not be the first prof that I felt had been sculpted extra nicely by the hand of our Creator.

As a student who has lived in and had to set up four off campus houses, I understand the priorities of the newly moved in person. Here are some of the main ones in the order that they get set up:
- computer & internet
and two months later everything else...

My parents came and picked me up on Sunday and gave me the love that only a parent can. It was nice not to have to worry about meals and such. I also got to take advantage of their satellite television and catch up with some old friends called V.I.P. and Star Trek T.N.G. (my goodness i love Spike TV).
Tuesday rolls around and in the middle of a nap I get this call from the City of Hamilton telling me that I have to go back to work and what day am I coming. Let us just say that my heart started to pump quickly as I struggled to grasp what was going on. I fumbled with an answer of Thursday, but told her that I really wasn't sure. She told me I had to come back before school started and that there were all kinds of forms that I should have filled out and would need to fill out and get a doctor to fill out. This was all a surprise to me. No foreman had mentioned anything like this in their phone calls to me. I did what I could to satisfy the woman on the phone and the call ended.
I tired to convey the details of the conversation to my Mom and almost ended up in tears. I knew I wasn't ready to go back to work. Mom and I devised a plan of heading to the hammer on Wednesday, seeing a doctor at the Locke St Clinic to fill out the Functional Abilities form the City wanted, take that to my yard and then see what happened. I still can't really drive so my Mom was going to have to take me to work the next day.
Wednesday morning we were preparing to go and I tried to get a hold of a foreman to make sure everything was for real. After leaving a few messages I had given up on trying to reach them. Then I struggled with my parents dial-up 24.0-26.4kbs internet to try and get the aforementioned Functional Abilities form to bring with us. While I was online God worked in a very tangible way. He got the acting foreman, George to call me and leave a message.
After a very affirming call to him things became much clearer. He agreed that still being dizzy, running a fever and super tired I was still unfit to return to work. He told me to go and see a doctor and get back in touch with him. He also said that he would lean on the people downtown for me. (yeah George!) That lead me to believe that the trip to the hammer might be premature. We called my parents General Physician (formerly mine) to see if he could take a look at me and fill in the form. His receptionist told me to come in in one hour! I called the lady downtown who had put so much pressure on me. She had just got off the phone with George. (yeah George!) She agreed that I likely wasn't ready to come back to work, but still needed to see the doctor. She faced the F.A form to the doctor's office for me.
I went to the doctor in Brighton. He said that I had been entirely over medicated and wondered at the functional abilities of a doctor who would put a girl being sedated by an antihistamine on a stronger more sedating antihistamine. He continued and told me that I was having a delayed hypersensitive reaction to the sting. I would make a full recovery but with such a short time being left in my contract, wouldn't feel comfortable sending me back to work in that time. So he wrote me off for the rest of my term. My term was to end on this coming Tuesday.
Now I am able to recover without stress. my parents brought me back today in order to avoid the bulk of holiday traffic. I am still dizzy, very tired, and running a slight fever. But I do know what is going on, and that I am being taken care of by my heavenly Father and my friends and here on earth.
I'll be at the house sleeping and cleaning this weekend if you want to stop in (maybe call first).
