Wasted weekend

So normally the weekend is my favorite time of week. It’s a time to sit back and relax after a long week of work. It’s a time to tidy the house that has somehow throughout the week become a pig sty. It’s a time to hang out with Josh and sleep in.
None of these things happened this weekend, so now I am predisposed to have a miserable week. Gr.
The weekend didn’t start off poopy. It was actually nice. Josh worked on Friday evening and so Ashley and I went out to Second Cup for some Skinny chocolate drinks and treats. It’d been a long time since we got to hang out, so it was nice to catch up. Josh was done work at 9:30, so Ashley dropped me off at the grocery store and I met up with him. We did our shopping (which was nice, no lineups) and made it home around 10:30. It went downhill from there. I was putting the groceries away and all the sudden felt dizzy. I had been feeling dizzy on and off at work all week, but chalked it up to the ear infection I had battled a few weeks earlier. So yea, here I am putting my popsicles in the freezer and WHAM, it hits me. I was like totally disoriented and nauseous. So, I just stopped what I was doing and went to bed. I figured that I’d sleep it off, but no. I woke up on Saturday still dizzy and sickish. However (looking back on this now, I probably should have just stayed in bed) I went with Josh to work for 9:30 where I was to meet up with Kelly and her kiddies for a workshop put on by Home Depot for kids. The ride over was horrible and I kept my eyes closed so I wouldn’t feel as sick. Once I got in H.D with Kel I was feeling a little better, but still dizzy. I was like telling myself to get over it. So we hung out until about 2 pm and then got her to drop me off. I went to bed and had a nap until Josh came home at 7. I was still dizzy…gr. We had supper and I was feeling a little better so we went to the driving range, which was nice, ‘cept the fog was rolling in and got a little cold for me. Then we came home to watch Flip this House on A&E (Josh is really into it, it’s funny) and I was just sitting on the couch talking to my mum and I got this wave of super dizziness again, and I got a hot flash and started dry heaving (I was super attractive). So we decided to go to emerg since my doctor wasn’t going to be available until like Tuesday this week. So we got there at like 9, got registered and checked by a nurse (who didn’t seem to care that I was throwing up at all), she said it was my ears causing trouble and then she sent me out to the waiting room. I didn’t really like the nurse cause I was like explaining my symptoms and she was making them into something else, it’s like she wasn’t listening. So yea, waiting room, waited there for like an hour and we were getting tired (and no where on the list, since my ailments were hardly life threatening) so we went home…what a waste of time.
SIDE NOTE: These are flowers that Josh bought for me that I love. I figured with all this negative talk you'd need a break. So there you have it...pretty flowers...now back to my whining.
Sunday morning wasn’t much better than Saturday, but we got up for Church and went anyways. I only lasted through sacrament and then we headed to the walk-in clinic (which I really didn’t want to do cause I feel like they don’t know what they are talking about). The doctor took my blood pressure and determined that it was low…writing me a prescription and sending my on my way. I didn’t fill it, cause I don’t think that’s what it is. I am going to have to try and get in to see my doctor about this cause it’s Monday and I am still feeling ick, and I am in a bad mood for feeling sick. Gr. So, um, sorry for the rant.
Ok, now for the little bit of funness which I didn’t think was fun until I talked about it later…I caught a wasp. In my house!! It was just hanging out on the floor, walking around, looking for innocent people to sting, and I saw it. First I screamed a little bit, mainly cause I don’t like bugs and then I decided it was my place and mr. wasp had no right being there, so I devised a plan of action. It wasn’t rocket science or anything, just a whole lot of precision and guts (if you ask me). I grabbed a mixing bowl (a glass one cause I knew I was going to have to take picture of my victory) and got down on my hands and knees. I waited for the right moment and BAM, I got him…little bugger didn’t even know!! So after I got him in the glass bowl I realized that the floor might not be exactly flat, and needed to put some weight on top of the bowl so he wouldn’t escape. So I grabbed a chair…it was a stellar performance on my part I think (I realize this picture would be 10 times better if it was posted right side up, I'm just too lazy)So there you have it, the highlight of my weekend. Ciao dudes.

well for a cranky person you whip out the old funnies. The wasp did it in for me for sure! Especially the chair on top of the bowl...priceless! It reminds me of the time I caught a mouse at work. I wish I had a blog then because it was so fun! I caught him in a van houtte paper cup. It was at the old office and he was running around just waiting for someone to step on him and I was a little worked up about him getting crushed...and in front of me. So I scooped him up in a cup and took him outside. He didn't like his first spot that I put him in so he crawled back in the cup...two tries later I just said...sorry Stew (cause that's his name) but you're gonna have to stay. This then reminds me of the time the dude fell in the pond at work...ask Lynds about that one. I can still see it clear as anything!

and I thought you may be pregnant too...ha ha sorry!

Okay, so I'm not even gonna say what I was thinking because everyone else has already beat me to it. I think I have an extra test still kicking around if you need it:) Love the pictures of the wasps......I would have smashed it with something as I'm not into bugs, especially something that might but you!!! You are braver then I would be. Must go to sad baby......she's hungry again....hope you figure out what's wrong soon!!!

The Nelson Family said...

I meant to put "bite you" not "but you".....that is my exhaustion kicking in......the lack of taking it easy is catching up to me. I just want to get things done around my house.....it's not showing yet!!!:)

Wow Julia this post has gotten quite the reaction... I will say on Sunday when Vanessa asked where you were and she ws told you went home sick...she was pretty excited thinking the reason might be what has been mentioned...but she was set straight about the whole ear thing. I hope you start feeling better I hate hearing you've been feeling crapy...so keep us posted...loved the pretty break in between and the wasp pictures were the best! Even when you are feeling ick you still manage a great post!

Ashley said...

Bummer about the dizzy thing... I had that a couple of weeks ago, I didn't know why but my only guess was the same thing, ear infection because I had just gotten over two colds in a row. OH, and good times Kristi, I remember the pond story!
