Summon the Choir!

The Heavens opened yesterday and God smiled on me as I finally got the Back Massager I’ve desperately been needing.  It’s a piece of heaven and it gets me feeling normal again without a huge chiropractor bill!  Summon the choir for the Hallelujah Chorus!  Okay, as you can see it doesn’t take much to make me happy.
On a different note, I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’ve found this week of Fall Premieres way less exciting than previous years.  It could be that I’m just not into that many shows anymore…with the exception of tonight.  Hubby and I are big fans of Thursday Night TV on NBC….so tonight is once again Holy.  YAY!  The next night of importance….perhaps tomorrow for the Presidential Debate, but definitely Sunday for “Family Guy” and “Desperate Housewives.”  –Yes, I’ll admit it.  Hubby likes it too, but more-so for the eye-candy.  (Desperate Houswives that is….not Family Guy-Peter is not eye-candy)
I’ve been on another spree of making more paper beads.  Hopefully, I’ll get more pieces of jewelry finished soon.
Kidlet is under the weather today with a cold caught from Day Care.  Work/Day Care tomorrow is up in the air right now pending a fever.  We’ll just have to wait and see.  Anyone up for Booger-Wiping Duties? 
I’ve sent Hubby on a mission of purging the house tomorrow.  He has directions that anything we haven’t used or I haven’t asked for, gets pitched.  We need a good purge before the snow flies.  It’s an effort for the house to look better and more clean, especially after all the work I do most days.  I’m looking forward to it.
Finally, we’re also on a mission to find a small dog to add to the family.  NOT A YIPPER THOUGH!  I mean a beagle or a basset hound, etc.  I’m looking forward to that too…and I’ll keep you posted.

See?  SEE!?!?!?!  A new necklace to replace my old one!  Yay!  It took a long time, but it was worth it! 
So, if I’ve come across as crazy by asking for people’s old magazines, this is what they’re for. 
You’re still taking me to the institution though, aren’t you?  Oh well, lemme get my supplies at least……

Wow, what a few days it’s been.  Thursday my body confirmed that I had a UTI.  (Urinary Tract Infection)  Whoopie!  Hubby was kind enough to get me some Azo to treat the symptoms and the plan is that I would wait it out a bit before deciding to go to the Dr. 
Thursday night came and all of the sudden I had internal lower back pains.  Crap.  This can’t be good.  So, into the walk-in clinic I went, fearing my kidneys were failing, I’d end up on dialysis and die after I accidentally missed a couple of appointments.  (Obviously you seem my optimism here.) 
To speak quite frankly, at this point my urine was also a different shade of normal upon going in, also heightening the dialysis outcome in my mind. 
I got in to walk-in, symptoms explained and they asked for a urine sample…that I saw coming.  What I didn’t see coming, was the  Orange Easter-Egg dye colored sample I ended up giving them.  Great.  I was sure I was dying.  I had a “Scrubs” moment  (Where one’s imagination takes over into a ridiculous day-dream) where everyone was at my wake, various people asking how I died and others shaking their head sullenly saying, “Orange pee.” 
I nervously got into the Dr.’s room and waited for the nurse.  She asked if I was taking anything and I explained that I had taken one dose of Azo that afternoon. 
“Oh,” she said, “That would explain your sample.  Azo turns your urine orange.” 
“What?,” I thought “I’m not dying?  No dialysis?  No appointments I might perish from if I forget them?  YAY!……Wait, why isn’t this on Azo’s packaging in bold letters: “THIS PRODUCT TURNS YOUR PEE ORANGE AND, NO, YOU’RE NOT DYING.”–I’ll have to write the company.” 
Two Life Lessons got added to my list that day.  Life Lesson #139:  Azo turns your Urine Orange. & Life Lesson #140:  It’s best not to first learn of Lesson #139 in a Hospital Bathroom.
In other news, I have another Orchid in Bloom!

I also got a chance to devote about 3 hours to myself yesterday.  (THANK YOU, HUBBY!) and I worked on these:

More Paper Beads I Made in Earth Tones

I need to find a way to coat them in sealer and dry them, but then they’ll be ready to go and I can finally attempt to replace the necklace I adore so much!  Yay!
And finally, I would like to devote this part in “An Ode to Netflix.”  Hubby and I don’t get to the theater.  Between finding a sitter, and more difficult-finding a movie that we want to pay theater prices for, it just doesn’t happen.  We started getting Netflix a couple of months ago, and it’s WONDERFUL!  I can once again feel “in the loop” of the current Pop Culture.  And even more than that, this morning CBS Sunday gave a run-down of up-coming fall movies coming out.  This means, I popped over to the computer and was able to enter the titles I think look good to my Netflix Queue.  We’ll get the movies popped into our line-up as soon as the DVD’s come out!  YAY!  That alone makes Netflix priceless to me!  THANK YOU NETFLIX! 
Oh, and if you want to check-out upcoming Fall Movies to perhaps do the same thing, here is where I found them this morning:
