Hello all! Hope ya’ll are doing well. My birtday was lovely. Went out to the desert, relaxed in the dirt all weekend.. made some new friends.. (always fun)! Got back on the quad for a real ride.. and it was good. No injuries, but man I’m sore!! Forgot how much work it is.. 😀 I feel great.
So today is my birthday. Just another day .. Don’t feel any different or older… hell I don’t really even feel my real age a lot of the time. (Lately I do because my body is broken.. LOL) Anyway.. So I get to go see the “vertebral specialist” next friday to find out what he’s going to do for my back. I’ll tell you, as an adult, I find it rather humorous the things that I begin to look forward to! I am actually excited to go see this guy to see if he can actually FIX me!! LOL LIke, counting down days.. pretty pathetic huh? It’s Ok.. I’m excited. 😀
So….. went and got the results of my MRI on my back.. I KNEW something was wrong.. So I got the films last week, and I would think a monkey could tell that these vertebrae were “tweaked” or something. And after seeing my dr … they are. 😀 Yay me. I think.. haha. Anyway, long story short, I have like 65% compression in T4, 5 and 6. T5 also has a crack in it. There is a hemangioma in T2 or something… I can’t remember which one.. but I guess that is “common”.. hhmmmm ok.
So what’s new with all of you?? Things are going fairly well over here.. Sad news this morning that Natasha Richardson didn’t survive the brain injury. She was great. The kid saw her picture on the internet that she had passed and said “Hey Mom, I know her.. she was the lady in the parent trap”.. Yes, she was.. well the remake anyway. Cool that a 9 yr old kid knew about it…
So when is one too “old” to make a career change?? I am going to be doing so very soon. I am currently awaiting the money for my tax returns, and will then take on a new venture. I am actually VERY excited. I have been working with computers for literally 23 years. I am kinda bored now. Like REALLY bored. So, after some soul searching (no, Taco Bell manager ain’t gonna cut it, and I thought about professional beer drinker.. but… doesn’t pay all that great. haha ) I have found something that I think will be PERFECT for me. I will be starting a new training course, hopefully by the end of this month, where I will be learning the following: Background Investigations, Investigative Records and Resources, Asset Investigation, Business and Criminal Intelligence, and Investigating By Computer, Skip Tracing, Missing Persons, Parental Kidnapping Investigation, Bounty Hunting, Process Serving and Automobile Repossession, Surveillance and Surveillance Photography, Vehicle Surveillance, Foot Surveillance, and Electronic Surveillance and Countermeasures, Insurance Fraud Investigation, Workman’s Comp Investigation, Arson Investigation, Interviewing and Interrogating, Report Writing and Testifying in Court, Employee Theft, Shoplifting Detection, Undercover Investigation, Industrial Espionage, and Computer Crime Investigation, Executive Protection, Bodyguard Training, Arrest Tactics, Foot and Vehicle Pursuit Tactics. So, As you can see.. there is A LOT for me to learn, and once I complete the course (I am shooting for 4 months) at the top of my class, I will be ready to head out into the real world and begin a new career.. Excited isn’t even the beginning of it. I am beyond excited. So, wish me luck, because I’m gonna need it..
Like that is anything new.. LOL Anyway, I’m trying to spend a little time to “clean up” some things on some of my pages.. One being SHUFFLE the music!! I apologize that the same song kept playing every time you came here. Now it is shuffling.. Try it.. Hit refresh.. New song! Yay me. Small things make me happy. 😀
Hey I found one more I wanted to share.. .this is one of my favourites..
Ok so awhile back I mentioned I would find some more of the poetry, words, whatever you want to call it.. I found some.. I even found a couple songs that I wrote many years ago and recorded.. can’t find the tapes tho.. LOL Anyway.. Enjoy (Oh, FYI, they aren’t all happy and roses and puppy dogs.. kind of morose, and sad, but hey.. it’s just words)
So yesterday I went to the Dr to get my MRI results.. (Ok, anyone had one recently? Sounds like TERRIBLE techno music!!) Anyway, pretty much what I thought.. Bone spurs again, and apparently a cyst and a bunch of swelling.. Oh well. My leg.. it’s healing.. Still. Apparently it is going to take up to a year, (I think I mentioned that before) before things are ‘normal’. Well, all of that is fine and dandy.. I actually don’t care about my leg or my shoulder. I am in soo much pain from my back STILL. Chiropractor is NOT helping. Nor is the lovely, dig her elbows into my back “theraputic massage”.. NOTHING is working. Stretches, stabilizer balls… nothing. Well, pain pills are still doing a LITTLE to hide the pain. So I told my Ortho dr yesterday that I am still in a lot of pain. There is really SOMETHING wrong with my back. I’m tired of having to take pain pills to sleep at night.. When the crash occurred… the podunk emergency room took ONE xray of my back. What they DID get was equivalent to xraying my wrist to see what’s up with my back. No way, no how to see anything from the angel they got.. So, I am going to have another MRI done, but this time on my entire back. I’m kind of glad actually. I just want to know what the hell is wrong with me. I’m tired of hurting.
So went to my reunion on Saturday night… Wow.. what a Great time.. It’s amazing how much people are different. What I mean is, some look like the EXACT same since high school, then there are others who have changed soo much. Like one of my friends, I swear he looks IDENTICAL to high school… and he even said the same of me.. just kinda weird. Anyway, had a blast.. Saw sooo many people I haven’t seen in almost 2 decades.. It was fun..
