so lately i have been frequenting different ERs around the atlanta area. last night, gwinnett medical center was blessed to have me as one of their patients.

recently, i have learned how to slice my fingers opened with razors!!! and seeing as i haven't had a tetanus shot in the past 10 years, a trip to the ER was warranted! so, for your viewing pleasure, here are two pictures from my thumb-slicing experience last night:

The Rules:

Each player of this game starts with 6 weird things about you (themselves). People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state the rules clearly. In the end choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a message saying, "you've been tagged" and tell them to read your blog

alright --- here's proof of my OCD....

1. when i put dishes in the dishwasher, all the utensils MUST have their own square in the utensil basket. all forks go together, all knives, etc.

2. i LOVE to burn paper in my fireplace. any junk mail goes straight there!

3. i am obsessed with my fish tank. i am constantly buying new fish to go in it.

4. i don't use drawers for my clothes. everything (and i mean everything!) is hung up!

5. when i get in bed to go to sleep, my blankets/sheets HAVE to be perfectly straight. otherwise it drives me nuts and robert has to fix them.

6. (my favorite) i count the lines that make up digital numbers, add them up, and see if those numbers equal what the numbers of the time added up are. for example, 4:56 (am/pm) would be 4=5 (b/c there are 5 lines in it), 5=5 and 6=6. so the numbers are added up to 16. and that is equal both ways. but 10:09 wouldn't be equal b/c 1=2, 0=6 (times 2 for the two zeros) and 9=6. so the numbers equal 20 but the time only equals 10. and what's really sad about this one is that if there is a digital clock anywhere around when it's time to go to sleep, i keep myself awake doing this over and over and over again as each time changes by the minute.

i tag whoever wants to play.

(dirty) joke of the day:

3 nuns died in a car crash. when they got to heaven, st. peter said they had to answer a question each before getting in.

st peter said to the first one, "what was the name of the first woman?"

"eve," the nun said.

"right! go on in!" said st. peter.

the second nun came up and he said, "where did eve live?"

the second nun said "the garden of eden."

"right! go on in!" said st. peter.

the third nun, who was the mother superior, came up. st peter said "your question is going to be a little bit more tricky since you are mother superior. what did eve say when she saw adam for the first time?"

the mother superior thought a minute. "ooh. that's a hard one...." she said.

"right! go on in!!!"

so here's a recap of my last 24 hours:

last night i was feeling like crap...again. i haven't been able to kick whatever this junk is that's hanging around me. but it has seemed to travel down into my chest - which isn't good. so last night i decided to go to the ER. i couldn't wait and go to the urgent care dr today because i had a test at school that i couldn't miss along with some other things. so ER is the next best thing. so i go. knowing full well that i'm going to be there for a while. while i'm registering my insurance and stuff, the guy who's checking me in decides that i'm a good patient to unload on. so for the next 30 minutes, i get his whole life story about how he's not happy in his marriage and hates his wife but loves his kids so he doesn't know what to do. i'm literally listening to him with my head on the desk b/c i feel so crappy - but this doesn't seem to bother him. while he's in the middle of his life's monologue, the dr calls me back. so 3 hours after i get there, the dr tells me that i have the flu (duh!) and she gives me tylenol with codeine in it because the coughing was absolutely KILLING my chest! she did x-rays as well just to make sure that i didn't have pneumonia. after the x-rays, the codeine starts to kick in. i am laughing hysterically at anything and everything. tears are just pouring down my face. good thing mom was back there with me!!

i get home (well, mom's house) after midnight. but i am wide awake. any drugs that are supposed to put you to sleep (benedryl, tylenol pm, etc) do the exact opposite to me. so not only am i wide awake, i am cracking up hysterically at everything.

i was told not to drive until this afternoon - which takes my 8 AM class out. so i go for my 12:30 class and take my test.

(now comes the interesting part.)

i had an interview at 7pm for a job at PriMerica Financial tonight. yes, a financial company. doesnt' that crack you up??? anyone who knows me knows that money and financial matters are not my strong point by any means. just ask my husband. so it totally cracked me up that they called me to come in for an interview. needless to say, i didnt' accept the job. it wouldn't be right! but it kinda made me feel good to be asked.....

i am very reflective right now. i have a theory as to why i think this is:

~ there's this guy in the student center, where i am currently located, playing the piano quite well. he's making up whatever he's doing, and it's amazingly beautiful. it's very soft...quiet..."spa-like"...very nice. i think i could sit here the rest of the day and just listen to him play.

who would have thought that my much needed rest would happen in the student center at school?!

so what, then, are my thoughts? well, i'd pay someone if they could tell me exactly what's going on in my head! there's so much right now it's hard to decipher. which is usually the case! but right now, for whatever reason, my head is exploding with thoughts and feelings that i can't quite figure out. i know that part of it is the whole baby thing. and part is the whole school thing. part is the whole house thing. i think there's more, but that's enough for me as it is!!!!!

so, while i have another hour until my class starts, i'll sit here and try to figure the rest out. or maybe just keep listening to this guy play. either way, my head is free to go where it wants...

the long-awaited Christmas pictures!!!

whew! it's territorial band/songsters weekend and all i have to say is that i am completely exhausted!!!! we started yesterday morning at 8:30 and went until about 8:00. this morning we started at 8:30 and finished at 5:00. but man! these rehearsals kill me! i love doing them, though! i love that i get to sing "for real". not that my home corps' songsters aren't real....it's just different with territorial songsters. plus, i get to see people that i don't normally! (hey connie!)

yesterday, during the lunch break, i went to get a chiropractic adjustment - which i do quite frequently...and have been for 4 years now. but this adjustment was particularly hard. when he adjusted the left side of my neck, it made the biggest cracking noise i had ever heard in the 4 years of adjustments i have under my belt! even my doctor said, "WHOA!" it hurt a bit, but i didnt' think much about it. just that maybe i really needed that!

as i was walking out the door, my aunt (who went with me) noticed that my right eye was extremely bloodshot. as time went on, it got worse and even went over to my left eye. my face was also burning hot - and bright red. i got a little nervous so i decided to call my doctor back, just in case that harsh crack had something to do with it. so i call....

...he says to me, "oh, you need to come back right now. i need to make sure you aren't have a stroke. have someone drive you here."

yeah - i'm freaking out!!! i'm sorry, did you just say A STROKE??? so i get there. he's doing all these neurological tests on me (follow my finger with your eyes; can you smell?; are you dizzy?; make your tongue follow my fingers; etc). he rules out a stroke (thank god!) but says, "well, sometimes harsh adjustments can make your body have a sudden energy surge. that's what happened with you. and when the energy surged in your body, it made you have a hot flash."

so there ya go. crises averted. but it made for some serious panic in the snelson household!
