So we have a lot to catch up on, and we’re going to do it through pictures. Ready? Okay. Here we go.
So last Tuesday I was basically dying in my car. I was on my way to Dr. Santa Maria’s office and I was in pain, baby. So much pain. I was like convulsing in my Altima wading through unusually heavy traffic–like forty five minutes of traffic to get down the street. By the time I burst into the office I was in tears, shaking, and in desperate need of pain killers. Dr. Santa Maria turned me around and sent me to the ER.
I would have been nervous because it was really the first time I was ever alone in the ER–but the pain kind of blurred out everything but the need for a shot of Torridol.
And then R.J picked me up, and I went home and I changed my dosage of Desipramene back to what it was supposed to be. And guess what? I lived.
And when I got home, Happy was all like…whatever.
The next day I saw a neon green foot-long gecko.
Here he is trying to outrun me around a tree.
He was fast.
The next day I made some macaroni and cheese–with vegan Daiya cheese. I mixed it with arguala and it was divine.
My mom went to the World Orphan Drug Conference for her show, Behind the Mystery. She was going to wear this fabulous dress–but I think she got food posioning that night. So I had to give the world another opportunity to see it. You’re welcome, mom!
While my mom was away, I spent some lady-time painting bird houses and eating rainbow cookies.
R.J had a busy week at work, so I stopped by one afternoon to bring him some headphones and some of his school stuff. I took Happy along for a ride and both my boys were pretty psyched to see each other–what with having not seen each other in four hours.
R.J’s sister was in town this weekend so we stopped by for dinner on Saturday night. I was pretty spoon-less at that point so I was delirious with laughter when I saw this sign in front of their neighborhood. Like, how stoned were you to construct this masterpiece?
Yesterday I also went to the eye doctor because, again, I scratched my eye putting in my contact lenses. I don’t even have nails. How does this happen?
Anyways, my eye doctor also does Botox so his office looks like the Taj Mahal.
That would be a marble floor and that TV was enormous.
And lastly, high fives all around– R.J took me exercising and we walked around this huge lake at a local park. I was pretty happy that I didn’t faint.
No wait! There’s more! Here’s yours truly…doing a doctor’s office selfie.
