I'm not a good waiter.  I don't mean waiter, like "May I take your order, please?" but rather, someone who doesn't wait patiently well.  Especially when it comes to finding out results that could be life-altering.   Or not.  Could be something.  Could be nothing.  Point is, I don't know the results yet and I don't know when I WILL know them.  Grr.

I had a blood draw a couple of weeks ago to have my thyroid and iron levels checked, due to some weird hair thinning I'm having.  My OBGYN wanted me to have the tests to see if those levels were ok before moving on to possibilities for the cause being my birth control or other meds I'm on... those levels were fine.  He did find, tho, that my red blood cell count is a little high.  Well, I went in yesterday for my yearly and he decided that he wanted another CBC done to recheck those high red blood cell levels... he said that it's probably nothing serious, but it could be Polycythemia, which is treatable, but will still suck (can be treated either with medication or with going once a week to drain, basically.  Ugh.) Many causes for polycythemia, some of which are scary as hell... some of which are nothing.  And I'm a hypochondriac (so is my husband!) so you can imagine the state I'm in right now. 

As for the hair loss... still no answer.  He wants to see the lab results first, then go from there.  It might be something as simple as changing meds dosage, or I may have to go to a dermotologist. 

blech.  Getting older SUCKS.

Freak snowstorm hit us today... 1 a.m... rain, no snow.  4 a.m. ... 3 inches... 7 a.m.  ... 5 inches.  Really bizarre and Colorado-like.  Forty-five by mid afternoon, and the kids and The Steev went out and made a giant snowman in the back yard while I watched "Gone With the Wind."  Mind you, they weren't out there the ENTIRE time I was watching the 4 hour movie, just part of it. ;P

Hafla went well... I managed to have a faux pas in every dance, but Oh Well.  Life Goes On. 

New pics on MySpace. 

That's about all of the excitement.

Salina... Out.

And now for a Creepy Old Fart at WalMart story...


So I was
also thinking along the lines of a new hip adornment for the hafla, but
in the form of a hipscarf to wear under my tassels, so while at
WallyWorld, I had looked over the fabric selection and found myself
uninterested, other than some fabulous tapastry-type stuff that was $9
a yard (!!) I was waiting outside of the bathroom at the back of the
store for Tal and cruising the Clearance items across from the shoes
(Allen Rd WallyWorld) and came across a window valance that was just
FABULOUS.  The color would have worked well, too, for a base, and it
had tasseled trim along the bottom.  I decided to take it out of the
pkg and see how it might look as a hip belt (with some altering) and
some what I assumed was a NICE older gentleman said "that would look
nice on you."

 I was startled and a bit embarrased by trying on a curtain in the
Clearance section of Walmart outside of the bathroom, so I was quick to
explain myself.  The old fart's eyes lit up when he heard the word
"dancer."  I don't think he heard the "American Tribal" part of that.  
I could practically SEE him salivate when he asked, "Do you do that

 I just looked at him. 

He continued, "Oh, I bet you'd be good at that... wearing JUST THAT THING" as he motioned to the valance. 

"Um.  NO.  I wear more clothes when I dance than I am now." (and I was dressed decently modestly)

"Oh," was the disappointed reply.  "Well, do you ever go to FANTASYLAND?" Hopeful look again. 

gave a quick, uneasy glance to Kellen, who was trying to show the old
pervert his Mickey Mouse kite.  "No." I said firmly and fidgeted,
trying to figure out how to get rid of him.  I couldn't leave... I was
waiting for Tal!!!

"Well, you should go dance there.  That's really only the good
place left, now that they're getting rid of Big Al's.  That's why I
just watch the... programs... on the T.V."  -leering look and creepy

Nervous laugh.  "Um, no thanks.  That's not the kind of dancing I do."

"Oh.  Well.  I bet you'd be good at it."  More drool.

From behind me, "ready, Mom?"

Thank you, Tal, for saving me.

Creepy old fart. 

BTW... didn't buy the valance.  It would have creeped me out just putting it on!!!

Just had to share.

You got WHAT stuck WHERE?

Kellen's birthday was pretty pleasant. We let him open his "small" present at breakfast... A Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Beanie Baby and a 4 pack of Benji movies on DVD. On the way out to the mall, I checked the mail... my Mom had sent him a birthday card with $20 in it... great timing, as we were going to Build-A-Bear. She pretty much paid for his black lab puppy (that he named "Satchel," of course!) so I was happy for the timing. Then we went to lunch at Chuck E Cheese... Shoshanna brought Nadia, Amy brought Amaya and her husband, and Steev even came for lunch! We stayed and played for 3 hours. After, we went to the video store, where we rented "Beverly Hills Chiuaua." We came home and watched it and made peanut butter rice krispy treats, then I made chicken strips and oven fries for dinner (Kellen s chicken nuggety things!) We put a candle in his rice krispy treat and sang "Happy Birthday" to him and gave him his "big" present... a "Go, Diego, Go!" game for the Wii. All in all, it was a fun day.

Today... we went to the dentist. Well, Tal and I did. I was WAY overdue for my cleaning and Tal needed to have the sealant put on his teeth. Kellen hung out with Grandma while we were there. Tomorrow... he's going for his 3 year check-up, plus I want the Dr to check out his cough. He's had it for 2 weeks now, and the last time he had one that long, it turned into a bronchial infection. Then tomorrow night, Tammy and Nicole are coming over and we're practicing a dance for our hafla at the end of the month.

Friday... nothing.

Saturday: Kellen's birthday party at 1. Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! is the theme, thanks to Kellen's genius. Kid couldn't pick something that is actually half-way popular, or at LEAST recognizable. No, he wants Wubbzy. So I'm having to improvise. Oh well... could be worse.

Sunday: Dance.

So, by now, I bet you're curious about my subject line.


I believe that I have a popcorn hull stuck in my right sinus passage.

Friday night, I ate a TON of popcorn at Tammy's house for Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad movie night. When I got home, I played Rock Band with Steev. At some point, I sneezed. Apparently, I still had some popcorn in my throat... I could feel the hull blast into my sinus cavity, where, despite blowing and snorting and sneezing, it has stayed since.

I'm not in a world of pain or anything... it's just uncomfortable at times and it makes my nose whistle on and off. I'm just afraid that either a) it's going to rot up there or b) cause a sinus infection, or c) all of the above.

I asked my dentist today if he had any recommendation on how to handle it. He said try the doctor. I decided to look online first... Most sites are recommending a sinus wash with either a bulbous thing or a neti pot. I had actually considered the neti pot approach before I looked online... guess after karate tonight, I'll be stopping by Walmart to pick one up, as I already tried the other method recommended... just snorting salt water. Didn't work. Other than the hull, I CAN breathe better now tho.

Blah. Only me.

PS... Good luck, Tal!!! He's testing for his yellow belt tonight!!!

Sometime between 7 and 8 last night, some butt nugget RAN OVER our two trash cans and two big black yard bags of trash that we had on the curb. It must've been a truck or SUV or something big, as they managed to drag one of the cans two houses down, spewing garbage all over the street, sidewalk, and my neighbor's lawn. You can see tire marks in our front yard! For those of you who don't know, there is a whole sidewalk there, separating the curb from our yard, so they REALLY had to have gotten up there! Luckily, Steev's car was in the driveway instead of parked in front of the house, otherwise they may have slammed into it.

What really scares me is that Tal and his friend from down the street were playing in the front yard ealier in the day. What if that moron had come barreling down the street and pulled that crap while they were in the yard?? I guess I can't let the kids play in front any more, for fear of some drunk/texting/whatever penis dribble is gonna hop the curb and kill my kid.

I'm REALLY hoping they got a flat tire out of it... one of the bags they ran over had a BUNCH of broken glass in it... Kellen knocked one of my big glass salad bowls off the counter a couple of days ago and it broke into some pretty big pieces. Here's keeping your fingers crossed.
