The DVR Debacle

I love my DVR.
I love that I can pause live tv, rewind if I missed something, fast forward through commercials, and record the end of a show if I just can't stay awake any longer. I love it! I have several shows set up as series recordings....

  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Private Practice
  • NCIS
  • The Secret Life of the American Teenager (it is my guilty pleasure show) lol
  • Glee
  • True Blood

I work a DVR is a must.. I am just never home when my shows come on... and the DVR should make my life so much easier...right??


I currently have a month of Grey's and PPs to watch..2 weeks of NCIS,and 3 episodes of Secret Life. Thankfully, I am caught up with Glee (loved the Madonna episode!!) and the True Blood season hasn't started yet. lol I am overwhelmed! I am so behind..that I don't know which show to catch up on first.. I know.. silly problem..but I have this issue.. I get weird when my DVR is about 40% full.. I can't delete any of my above listed shows yet.. I have other shows that I recorded on a whim ( of course haven't watched yet) and then the children's programming.. Dalton learned how to record what he is watching..So I will look and see 19 minutes of Yo Gabba Gabba, and 5 minutes of Dora..etc..etc.. on top of his shows that I keep on there (Billy the Exterminator, Backyardigans. Ni Hao Kai Lan, Upside down show, and Monster Jam).. So currently the DVR in the living room is at 63%! Ack! The DVR in my bedroom is at 50%...double ack! Yes I have two dvrs.. I spoil myself..but anyway.. random silly rant over...

So what do you record? What is your guilty pleasure show?

6 days..

of the funk..

I have been sick for 6 days...6 days of nausea, 6 days of vomiting, and 6 days of well other very unpleasant things. I finally broke down and went to the doctor today..

I've lost 7 lbs in the 6 days I've been sick. Yay! Oh wait.. thats been 6 days without a real meal, or even a meal consisting of more than a few bites of food. So boo!

Should have some answers this week hopefully.

Good luck or Bad luck?

I'm really not in a mood to blog..but I'm doing it anyway.

I went Monday and got my hair cut..yes AGAIN.. I decided I wanted to go shorter..
Went to work.. 5 minutes into my shift some stupid ass hits my car!Stupid Hit and Run Driver.. I'm pissed..but what can ya do? Police came.. called my insurance company.. all this lead to nerves from I went home. Spent half the night on the phone w/ various people at Erie.

Tuesday, I picked up a copy of my insurance policy..met the tow truck at work, and picked up a rental car. On my way to work I started having massive chest I detoured to the ER.BP 159/101.. No SVT.. blood work came back heart attack..kept me over night for observation and had a stress test this morning.. That was fun.. NOT. Came back okay.. am supposed to follow up w/ my cardiologist and primary doc.

So Good luck or Bad luck?

Bad- my car got hit.. then they ran...chest pain..high bp
Good- I have full coverage ins, my deductible isn't that high, didn't have a heart attack..not SVT related, now I'm home..

Good luck it is!!

A Little Bit of Everything

Well, I am back! I finally decided to bite the bullet and start blogging again. Last night I spent an hour or so deciding on a new layout and figuring out how to personalize my header... What do you think?

So.. my life since November...

  • My *coughcough31stcoughcough* birthday came and went.. I spent it with family and friends, we had a great time!
  • We spent Christmas in Georgia with my sister and her family. The kids were spoiled..of course.. I will post pics in the next post.
  • I believe I slept thru NYE.
  • January was a great month! Mom and I headed to Nashville on January 19th for my pre-op appt with Dr. E, my Vanderbilt EP. The next morning, super bright and early.. I checked in at the Children's Hospital.. YES, the children's hospital.. Laugh all you want.. it is funny. haha Dr. E said my case was "challenging" and he wanted Dr. F to assist plus they had better mapping equipment. The procedure lasted almost SIX hours!! Appears I was just as difficult under general anethesia as I am awake. lol The SVT wasn't starting in the area they previously thought.... They had to ablate around 50 different spots! They went thru both legs and my neck. I woke up in horrid pain...was dosed and passed back out.. this happened for a few hours. I had to keep my legs completely still and lay flat for 6 hours! Luckily over half of that I was drugged. But the last few hours were hell. Then I woke up around 2am.. crying in pain. Once the nurse came in she realized that I had started bleeding internally on my left groin area and developed a rather large...okay huge.. hematoma. Better to bleed in than out I guess.. not as messy. Blah blah blah.. I wasn't allowed to get up and walk until they day I was released..>Friday. Walking was an ordeal.. onlookers thought it was a bit funny. I had that just pushed out a 20lb baby...but didn't ya know I didnt. Anyway....long story a bit shorter.. after much monitoring I was SVT free! I stayed SVT free until about 2 weeks ago.. Not great news..but it could be worse. I have had maybe 5 episodes since then..but not a one compared to pre ablation episodes. My followup in Nashville is Mid April.
  • I am back at work! Yay!! After being out on leave for basically 8 months.. I was more than ready to go back! I missed my friends!! (love you guys!)
  • Oh, pre surgery I had my hair done.. Elisha is the most awesome talented stylist ever!! (Enve Salon..) Pics on next post!
  • Most that know me...know about the house fire in October.. They have finally started on the house...and man do they work fast!! They almost have the whole house gutted already!! Its amazing to see! At the rate they are going, we will probably be back in the house before August!
  • Speaking of August.. my little monster starts school in the fall. I have been back and forth about where to send him...public or private. My cousin sends her boys to Freedom Christian Academy.. so Mom, Dalton, and I met with the principal on Wednesday and took a tour. That place is great! I really feel in my heart that is the place for Dalton. So I am filling out the application and praying that they will have a spot for Dalton in the fall!

Okay..update wise I think that is the scoop!

So.. I think that is it for now..update wise....
