I have mono and a very bad virus that has me down and out and makes me ache all over and feel so weak at points I can't move. I am used to being sick in one way or another, and pushing through it like nothing is wrong. But this time it seems to have me beat. I hope to be doing at least well enough to cope when I go to work starting Wednesday. I am SO FRUSTRATED because I have so many things I need to get done and my body won't do it with me. I normally don't say anything because I don't want to sound like I'm complaining, but please pray for me because I really am not doing well.

Kurt, Jane, and I went to visit my family on their vacation on Saturday. It was fun, but unfortunately I spent most of the time in a camp chair. After a while I did manage to get up and around and went disc golfing (half of the course ). I really enjoy Frisbee golfing, even if I am not the best at it. When I went I got stung by a hornet right under my eye. :o

I had an adventure that night. I went on Kurt's run with him. All of the sudden my eyes started swelling up huge and itching like crazy, I could barely see out of them. They were so swollen that you couldn't see my bottom eyelashes and they were poking my eye!! I then broke out in hives all around my eyes. I have never had this happen to me either, so I decided I needed some Benedryl. Unfortunately we were out in the country and nothing was opened past midnight. So we drove around for a long while stopping at gas station after gas station, none of which had Benedryl till we finally found a 24 hour Stop & Shop. Thankfully the benedryl kicked in and I clonked out . :)

Now my right eye is swollen and red, right where my hornet sting was. . . so I'm assuming that's why.

This whole post looks like I'm whining, that is why I haven't posted all week but I guess it couldn't be helped. I am just thankful that I am not in the hospital, I don't have a anything I'm dying from, I have a new job, I have a great family, and a wonderful husband who has been caring for an out of commission wife. :)

I now have a job at Kohls. My group interview a couple of weeks ago went really well. I wasn't sure if it had, but they picked me!

I have orientation tonight.

George Island .

Something old.

We went to Boston & George Island with Chris and Janelle in May. George island is basically an island covered with a massive fort. It was very neat to explore! I recommend going there.

We took a ferry to George Island. I love boat rides!

Kurt took the camera and I later found this :)

and this. . . so cute!

My hunk.

It was very dark in there. My camera flash came in handy.

The only windows inside the fort. So prisoners could not escape.

These were randomly in walls. no opening on the other side. Wonder why? Shelf? Mail box? I am not so creative.

Bomb equipment. (I'm guessing )

My Laptop .

My laptop is fixed! I am so happy :) Apple was going to charge me $250+, Circuit barn charged me $125. Thank you!!

I made my first Avon order. Lots of customers! Surprisingly it all came in 2 days after I ordered it! It was all jumbled together and very confusing, but my customers are happy, and very pleasantly surprised by the size of the products. Yay!

Funny story, I accidentally ordered 100 magazines, all the same. I only needed about 15. (The magazines are only good for a 2 week period) I guess when you order, 1 means 10, so 10 means 100. I laughed when I received them, so many things going wrong lately (more then lately) that I am starting to see the humor in just about everything. I did make a profit, which was the goal. Although spending $20 on magazines was not helpful.

Kurt and I took a long weekend and went on my first Larrabee family vacation. I survived!! No, really, it was a lot of fun. We stayed in a great big house in Vermont. I went Frisbee golfing for the first time. It was very cool, I will do it again someday. Thank you Matt for the fun time!

Excuse me for gabbing about random things. I just want to type on my laptop. More random posts to continue.
