My closure for a week gone bad.....

Oh you have just made my entire horrible week by me changing the channel to hear you introduce your village for the next 2 hours of amazing-ness with you and the fiddler. 

Tzeitel: But Mama, the men she finds. The last one was so old and he was bald. He had no hair. 
Golde: A poor girl without a dowry can't be so particular. You want hair, marry a monkey. 

Something about musicals just makes me go to my happy place.

I told Evan last year I wanted the entire Rogers and Hammerstein collection for Christmas, he thought I was joking. You'd think, I gave him a daughter for Christmas, the least he could do is make his musical fanatic wife happy with an entire collection of G rated musicals. *sigh*

I keep telling myself I will update this soon but I hardly get comments anymore and it seems all I am doing lately is looking a job while being told "NO." daily. Gets so disheartening to turn in applications anymore. 

Okay, sorry, ignore the negative attitude moment.

Anyone have big plans for the 4th? It's my FAVORITE  holiday, well, besides Christmas and Thanksgiving but still, I always enjoy this time of year (Minus the Texas heat). Last year we had a huge group together at UNT and brought tons of food. I wonder how Avery will do with the fireworks, I'm sure knowing her, she'll sleep through them.....or be super fascinated by them.

I'm not sure what to update and not update about, lots of things going on, some bad news, some okay news, just so busy! Let me know what you want to know, that might get me going. Hope everyone is doing alright.

We're having lunch with Brent and Alanna tomorrow and maybe, MAYBE going to see Transformers 2. Could make for an interesting weekend.

Up too late again this week, Ah, the joys of stress.

Avery is 6 months old today....
Half a year already?! Time to start planning her Birthday party....I'm thinking of a cupcake reception and rather than gifts for her for people to make love donations to the church or to their favorite charity in her name...
She doesn't need anything, she's spoiled enough as it is...

In other news, I'm not feeling the love here followers, no love at all. My last comment was ages ago! Can we remedy this? And while we're on the are you? Are you well? How's your summer so far?

I'll update better next time, again, it's late and I'm wide awake. I'm just so stressed and currently missing a lot of people and things......

Like these two, my two best guy friends in the world! We had lunch with Ryan last weekend and saw his family but Rusty I haven't seen since I had Avery and he came to the hospital with goodies for us. Miss you bubbas.

Then there's my Mulan and her newlywed Hubby Andy. They are so fun to be around and yet Evan and I hardly see you two face to face.  I hardly know Andy and that just doesn't seem right...You guys rock and makes us smile.

Then of course my brother Jonathon, I haven't seen or talked to him in over a month and he is going through some rough times right now. We've always been super close, he's always been with me until I married Evan and now...I'm lucky if I get to see him at all let alone talk to him. My other siblings I atleast talk to weekly, but not Jonathon.

And Last but not least, I miss being pregnant. NO, we're not planning on having another baby anytime soon but lately, a lot of my friends have become pregnant and I feel so nostalgic over my belly, I loved my pregnancy belly and I felt the most vivacious, attractive and confident about my body image when I was pregnant that I miss that! With Avery being 6 months old now, I just can't believe how time flies...

Catch up.

I haven't had the time to update about our trip to TN. Needless to say, it was so needed and wonderful, we plan on going back next year and we also plan on taking Avery!!

I'm currently in her nursery on the Macbook, I c
an hear her squealing with delight over her new Excersaucer Nana got her last week. TOO STINKING CUTE. Her squealing that is, she is just SOOOOOO happy in that thing.

Evan stayed the night at his best friend, Nick's last night. They get together every so often and record a song together, this makes song three and it is AMAZING. If I can learn how to post music on here, I will post it ASAP. Last time they got together Evan wrote a song for me and Nick liked it so much he showed it to the band he's in (Sleeperstar, check them out on myspace or FB) and they turned "Brittnye" into their song "Lose the words" A-W-E-S-O-M-E-N-E-S-S.

Anyway, if you know how to help me get songs on here let me know!

For now, I leave you with a few pics from our trip to TN.


The Awesome Couple Katherine and Dave, we finally got to meet at The Gathering. They are from Ohio and soon to be Married in October.The Awesome and Modern Hotel we stayed at in Franklin (Cool Springs) I wouldn't mind living in Franklin, it was so pretty!

Memphis Dry Ribs!!! Evan wanted to take me to Reindevous but they were closed so we walked to Beale Street and tried them at B.B. Kings Cafe and they were soooo good. Still love my Razzoos ribs though.

when it rains it pours..

I learned a very valuable lesson yesterday.

Listen to your body!

This week has been so crazy as Evan and I get things ready for our "Adult" vacation. Lists are everywhere, things need to be packed, everything Avery owns pretty much has to get settled at the grandparents since this will be the first time we have been away from her! 5 days of just Evan and I on the road to TN.

So Friday night when I started getting sharp stabbing pains in my back, I thought "just stress" and went on with my daily grind. Saturday when we were at the Ranger game and I constantly felt flush and dizzy I thought "just the heat" however, on Sunday when I had to have Evan take me home in the middle of worship service, I knew something was wrong.

I'll spare you the TMI details but my body was fighting something hardcore and all I could do was sleep it off.

So Monday, I picked Avery up early from the sitter and Kym came to visit us. We went to eat at Ihop and again the stabbing pains hit and I couldn't breathe! We left then and there and Kym watched Avery while I took a nap and waited for Evan to get home. I kept thinking nothing of it, this week had been so crazy and stressful and there was no way I was going to get sick right before we left for our first vacation.

Things got progressively worse through the night, I was burning up yet had severe chills, everything ached from head to toe, my head was throbbing...I was a mess. Evan got a hot shower going for me, Bad. Idea. It only made things worse for me, I ended up passing out and Evan was washing my face with a cool rag asking if we should go to the ER since I was scaring him. Since my insurance ended May 31st that was the last thing I wanted to do, we haven't paid off Evans medical bills from October yet. By 5am I thought I was dying I couldn't move, I couldn't talk, I just hurt so bad! Evan went online and made me an appointment for Care Now. They didn't call us until 8am. Got dressed and passed out in the car then saw the doctor at Care Now. My fever was 102.2, my white blood cell count was 14000 (normal is 9000), I was dehydrated and they sent me to HEB immediately to be admitted for antibiotics and fluids, apparently I was in very bad shape.

Got to HEB where my body couldn't stop shaking, they checked me in and then made us wait an hour in the ER lobby until a bed was free. I was in SO much pain from my back and head hurting, I even told a lady to "shut up" who was talking ridiculously loud on her phone. I normally would NEVER be so rude but I was hurting so bad. Avery was so great, we didn't have time to take her to the sitter's so she was with us and never fussed! Evan took care of her until Nan showed up at the hospital and took her to our house. I stayed at HEB for 9 hours under heavy fluids and antibiotics, they told me my right kidney is only doing about 30% of it's job. We did a Cat scan and x-rays to check for stones which there were none. In the end this is the same thing I had when I was pregnant with Avery. I was hospitalized in October and November for this and they told me it would probably happen again and later in life might become a kidney disease. All in all I just have to take precautionary measures (Not so much soda and salt) and that now that I know the symptoms to not ignore them and get to a doctor as soon as I feel it happening again.

Yeah, this weeks been crazy.

I'm home now, taking my meds. My fever spiked last night to 103.4 and we thought we would have to go back to the ER, I stuck it out though and it finally broke. Today has been a roller coaster, I take my meds every 6 hours. My fever spikes then breaks all while I get massive back pains and chills where my body won't stop shaking. Hopefully by tomorrow my body will be used to the meds and we go on with our trip..

Thank God for Nan! She is still here taking care of things while I rest up and get better, she went and bought Avery a new excersaucer and is currently putting it together while Avery watches. I don't know what I would do without this wonderful woman, I definitely count my blessings with her, she is the best mother in-law a girl could dream for.

I might update once more before we head to TN but if not I hope you all have a safe and blessed week. Thank you sooo much for the prayers and love and support! They were felt and appreciated.

We love you guys and gals.
