Blue is blue

So as I'm painting my living room wall "Acupulco Sky" blue, which I matched to a throw pillow I found and love with browns and blues, when it dawns on me that this is kinda close to the "country blue" from the 80's. *sigh* Oh well, at least it brightens the room up and it's no longer doctor's office white. It soothing. Makes me want to sing... "I'm blue, da da dee da da da da da de da da...."

TGIF! I have a lot planned this weekend. Tonight I'm taxiing kids and have a girls night out planned with some friends. I finally bought paint for the living room. I may stay up all night painting. That way I don't have the kids or dog in my way, and it may be the only time I have to get it done! My daughter said something yesterday about our house finally looking like we are staying. Of course they don't realize these things take time and money and energy, All of which I never seem have any of. *sigh* Both Kids have play dates/parties tomorrow and we are going "down under" to visit some long distance friends on Sunday. So I may not be blogging until next week! Of course I will have a lot to blog about! Not that anyone is listening...

I think it was just indigestion or heartburn. Are they different?? BUT, to be sure, I'm seeing a doctor. Better safe than sorry. More to come...


Using "The Secret" is tricky business. In case you haven't heard of it, the theory is that every thought generates a magnetic frequency to the universe which bounces back that same frequency. Thoughts become things, like equals like, you get the gist. So yesterday my car starts acting funny not wanting to start. I do my best not to not panic. Can't go sending out negative waves to the universe now can I?? It's just the battery I tell myself. Try again. No go. I get out and check the trunk for jumper cables. No jumper cables. Must have thrown them in as a consolation prize when we sold our OTHER car. Try a third time. Success! I sigh relief as I was in the Albertson's parking lot on a quick errand with no cell phone, and basically no one to call anyway to bail me out since it is 7:30 P.M. on EASTER SUNDAY. I make it safely home to tell my husband that something is wrong with the car. How do you positively say and/or think that?? We decide to not ignore this and take it in to the mechanic today. Needless to say they are still working on it and we are temporarily sans car. I am sending positive thoughts to the universe that this will not break my bank account. Car fixed=FREE. Car fixed=FREE. Say it with me now. Also, I am thankful for living in a city with a reliable, FREE public transportation system. Keep thinking positive thoughts....

I'm not dead from a heart attack. However whatever it was scared me. Enough to start taking better care of myself? We will see. Baby steps. I have been somewhat productive today. 1) Went tanning. Ok, don't judge me here. It's good for my mood and my problematic skin-plus my sister once told me that tanned fat is always better than white fat. 2) Played fetch with my dog Tank-yes he is living up to his name. 12-15 pounds full grown my ass Mr. breeder! He's 15 pounds now and only 5 months old! And we are pretty sure he was the runt!!! 3) Best thing I did today was clean out our one and only (for the time being) car. I usually don't let it get this bad. I've been lazy, and waiting for the weather to be somewhat decent. Today was the day. I cleaned out 3 grocery bags of crap. I try not to be a nag. I know I've asked (hopefully nicely) for the family to try and help me out to take better care of it. Why can't we all do our part? Does anyone else have this problem? *sigh* Obviously I'm the only one that cares about it.

So today I come back to work from lunch and am experiencing major heartburn. Or at least I think it's heartburn. My mind reels. Maybe it's NOT heartburn. No, I'm just being paranoid. Thing is, I'm NOT in the best of shape. I've been neglecting my body for years now, and I'm pushing 40. I eat like crap. Chest hurts. Head spins when I stand. Google "heart attack". I have some of the listed symptoms. Should I go to the ER? No, I'm just being paranoid. I take 2 aspirin(just in case), leave 15 minutes early-which I'm sure I'll hear about Monday, but hey! It was slow anyway and besides..I'M HAVING A FREAKIN' HEART ATTACK! I go home and take a heartburn medicine and lay down. If I don't wake up, I'll know it was a heart attack. Or I guess I wont know. whatever. I wake up 3 hours later and feel somewhat better. Having some minor pain now. No, I'm just being paranoid...I'm sure that's all it is...paranoia.
