WTF Wednesday, Wreath me alone

So, this post is a little late today.  I was up at the usual 5:30 AM, I ran, walked the dogs, showered and then got ready to get on the computer.  Except, one of the dogs was farting.  And y’all, it was bad.

fart dogs

Completely accurate.

That’s the reason I spent most of my morning outside on the lanai.  Because my dogs are gross and they stink.  And also because I’m trying to contain all the glitter to one area.  You may have heard me mention it at least a hundred times or more but I hate glitter, it’s the herpes of the craft world but there’s a reason it’s all over my house.

The reason for the glitter is my obsession with making things and you tube.  I’m pretty sure I could perform a vasectomy with the right you tube video.  No, I’m absolutely sure.  You tube is the best thing ever for audio/visual learners but I digress, let’s talk about why my house looks like the day after a disco party gone wrong.

Wreaths.

I wanted to make my mother in law a wreath for the fall since she’s getting out of the hospital today.  And as luck would have it, I found a great tutorial on youtube and I made this one for her.

And then I fell down the rabbit hole.  I found more tutorials and more ideas and after 7 trips to the dollar tree, all the supplies I needed.

And then I made this one for me.

 

And I might have made one or two more but I’m not publicly admitting to anything.  I do have a question though, why on God’s green earth does the Dollar Tree put glitter on practically everything?  WHY?  It’s completely unnecessary.  I mean really.

WTF, It’s Wednesday and today I’m steering clear of youtube and the dog’s butt.

Fitbit struggles from a healthy junky

So my damn fitbit hasn’t synced since late August.  I’ve tried every suggested fix short of losing all of my data and still nothing.  The next step includes a reset and that’s when I’ll lose all of my data so I’m sort of pissed.  I mean, I just got the damn thing back a few months ago.

Lately I’ve spent more time trying to sync and fix it than I have working out so I’m wondering what the breaking point is….

Ugh, gadgets.

Last week when I had my procedures the nurse had a bit of trouble finding my vein.  It wasn’t too terribly bad and she only missed once but she had to put the IV in my hand and I tend to bruise pretty bad there.

Hand

It isn’t painful, it just looks really bad {way worse than the pictures} but I’ve had mad fun with it.  Whenever I’m out and about and someone looks at me or says something, I make comments like, ‘yeah, I know, I need to find another vein’ and then I crack up at the side eye I get.

Do you bruise easy?

Any fitbit struggles for you?

From your gum to your bum….

So obviously the surgery went okay, otherwise I would probably not be updating today, right?

medical humor

For the record I don’t usually mind medical humor, in fact, I sort of appreciate it but here’s the thing, when there are several patients and they are all within earshot, don’t use the same joke over and over again.  It’s horrible.  “Oh, you’re having the gum to your bum today….yada yada yada….”

MacGyver and I arrived at the surgery center around 8:30 in the morning.  My surgery was scheduled for 8:45.  The surgery center is just like a big ER and all the patients are in the rooms beside each other before they go into surgery.  That’s why I kept hearing the nurses tell the same joke over and over and by the time they got to me I was over it.

I had asked MacGyver the night before if he would take a sharpie and write ‘don’t amputate anything’ on my back in case they got confused as to which patient I was but apparently they only had colonoscopies and endoscopies on the schedule so no worries there.

My surgery didn’t start until nearly 10AM and I’ve had both a colonoscopy and an endoscopy many times, so I knew what to expect.   I just wanted them to knock me out and get it over with, sans jokes.

Finally they woke me up around 11:15 and told me that I have a hiatal hernia and an ulcer, some diverticulosis and several small white patchy areas which they’ve biopsied.  Too much info for you?  Well, how about a picture.

Sorry, I had to.

I guess I will have to wait until my follow up to find out what they learn from the biopsies.  I tried to pick the doctors brain so I’d have some idea of what she thought but she had the worst bedside manner and was not very friendly or informative.  She just told me to take a prilosec every day and avoid aspirin until the biopsy results come in.

I’m pretty sure she’s fired after the follow up regardless of the outcome.  I have never had good luck with gastroenterologist.  I have hated almost every one I’ve seen and maybe she was just having a bad day but so far she hasn’t won me over or even made me think twice about giving her a second chance.

Once MacGyver and I got home I slept for the rest of the day.  On Saturday we went to a ton of garage sales and estate sales and on Sunday I decorated for fall, because I can.

And that was my weekend.

How was yours?
