All Over the Place

This post is going to be all over the place. Sorry about that.

I have so much going on right now I'm not even sure where to start.

Work. Getting ready for the move. Dragon Boat practice. Doctor's appointments.

Let's start with that.

I saw my kidney doctor for my 6 month check up on Wednesday. Things are still looking good. Kidney disease appears to still be in remission. The protein in my urine did go up slightly from the last time he saw me so he wants to keep an eye on it and see me back in about 4 months instead of 6.

Oh, and my thyroid is low. Again. Which explains why I stopped losing weight and also why I have been so tired all of the time. So. Very. Tired.

The new meds will take about 3 weeks to kick in and then I should be feeling much better.

I had a bladder infection too(ouch), so I am on antibiotics for that.

I am loving Dragon Boat practice sooooo much. Only two more weeks after tomorrow and then the races. I will be so bummed when it is over. Oh how I wish we could afford to get a couple of Kayaks. I simply love paddling and being out on the water. It is so calming for me(and great exercise too).

Still no job for Joe. I am trying not to freak out about it. We are receiving unemployment now, so it helps, but we really need him to find a job.

I swear I never thought in a million years that Teachers would have a hard time finding jobs. Excuse me but isn't that one of the most important jobs there is? Oh, that's right. Not in CA. Sorry for the sarcasm. It just makes me sick. I can't even talk about it anymore.

My Sees-ter is vacationing in San Diego, so I get to hang out with her a couple of days this week. She dropped both of her dogs off at my house today. How is it that every time she goes on vacation I end up with either her kids or her dogs? The only answer to that is "because I am an awesome sister"! ;)

Last night I was notified via e-mail that I got tickets to be in the studio audience for one of my favorite shows "So You Think You Can Dance". I had put my name on the waiting list last season. The taping is on Thursday and normally I wouldn't be able to go because I would be working but I had asked for this Thursday off so I could spend it with my sister so Joe and I are thinking about going. I love that show!! We haven't decided if we are going to go or not but it sure would be exciting!

Then today on my way to visit my Dad the radio station I listen to was giving away free tickets to see Circue du Soleil to the 104th texter.

So I texted them while I was driving(which is totally illegal) and I won!

And the date the show is on is Joe's birthday! What a great(free!) birthday present!

So we're going to see Kooza at the Santa Monica Pier in October. I am already excited about it and it's 3 months away.

I have always been very lucky with winning things on the radio. I have won concert tickets three times, and a hundred bucks once and even a 5 day trip to Hawaii 8 years ago. It has been awhile since I last won anything. Actually, it's been awhile since I tried to win anything. So that might be why I haven't won. Too bad I'm not a gambler.

So it's been kind of an exciting weekend so far.

I hope yours is going well too!

Here is a picture of my sister's puppy "Finn" being all crazy. He sure is cute.

Cool news on the tickets. I would go with you to Dance!

My 30's were filled with medical issues. It is like you hit a certain birthday and it all goes down hill. I hope things improve for you.

I saw Kooza several months ago and loved it! I know you will too!

I hope your hubby finds a job really soon.
