So I finish the whole bottle of these little blue pills..(Clindamyacin) which mind you made me feel like complete garbage and did a number on my GI tract for 10 days. I got it on with my nostrils, rubbing this weird ointment in there..I washed myself with the orange stinky-ass goo they gave me.
I followed the directions to a T.
So for shits and grins I decided to call and see the results of my culture they took that night in the Urgent Care.
A nurse called me back.
Nurse Boy : "Weird, you don't have Staph, nothing grew on the culture,"
Me: (chocking on my diet Pepsi ) regaining my composure,"What, are you kidding me? The Dr. said I had it."
Nurse Boy "Kelly, I don't know what to tell you..its not there"
Me: "You have got to be kidding me..I took this whole bottle of stupid antibiotics and did all this crap and I don't have Staph? But..but..I thought..."
Nurse Boy: (clears his throat) "Yeah I know..I don't know what to say..you just don't have it. Maybe you had it the first time you came in for your c-section scar, but those antibiotics cleared that up, and this too,"
Me " Dude, I only took 3 of those antibiotics before, there is no way those 3 cleared up this case of so-called Staph..I didn't even have the 'bite' yet"
Nurse Boy "Yeah..weird"
I hung up.
Why can't I ever get someone who knows what the fuck they are talking about? Seriously, didn't Dr. so and so go to medical school for X amount of years? And he can't tell me if I have/had Staph?
I am so done...

I babysat my friends daughter..(Lily's best friend) all day..from 730 am to 415pm. No fights to speak of. It was grand. I had told Lily I would take them somewhere..but unfortunately I wasn't able too. I had my plumber coming, the electrician, and the bug guy.
All she wanted to so was to go to the pet store and pet a dog.
Hello, there's a pooch right here you silly. Apparently Salsa just won't cut it. Whatever...
I made beef stroganoff yesterday..(forgot to picture it though), then being the awesome wife that I am I decide that it would be good to get up with Justin this morning and make him breakfast while he was in the shower. I had bought some pork sausage the other day. I have a herb box in the back yard with mint, cinnamon basil and sage.
I went to the back yard to harvest some sage to spruce up the sausage.
Yummy. I also harvested some mint and I mixed that with some lemonade I made..
that was really good.
Once I get started, its hard to stop. What next? Ahh, banana bread. We need banana bread!
That turned out good, and I made a crumble topping of dark brown sugar and cinnamon.
I have no clue what today calls for. My house is clean, the laundry is done, the backyard was raked..what can I do? I suppose there is organizing...yeah, I like to do that. Talk about anal, one time I organized my friends sock drawer. I arranged them alphabetically by color name..aqua, black, brown, chartreuse, etc. Its a sickness really. I guess I can make next week menu's. That's not done yet, I normally do that Saturday. Oh I will be so ahead of schedule, sweet.

I am getting some stoneware, a awesome baking sheet thingy, and a citrus press that I HAVE to have..I mean Hello, how awesome to use when making mojito's and vodka tonics. And of course when hubs makes his guacamole.
I made a totally easy dish tonight..I made it up kinda so it doesn't have a name...maybe something like..creamy chicken over rice dish..yeah that sounds good.
Threw a bunch of chicken in a crock pot..tons of fresh garlic,half an onion diced, and 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup..left it for 4 ish hours, made some rice and steamed some corn...poof, theres dinner and boy does the house smell good.
I have to get up early tomorrow because Justin is off to Comic Con..I am taking him to the trolley station, and he will go from there.
It will be just me and the kiddos, so I am going to take them to the Y for some swimming fun. Well fun for them, not for me. I mean..eewwww.. a public pool, that's just a cesspool of total and complete germs and grossness. And yes I am a total germaphobe. Ahhh the price I pay for the kids to have fun. And yes, I am the one who always has Purel in my pocket antibacterial wipes in my purse. Yep, I'm one of those...so fun.
p.s. Thursday as I was telling Jack that I was having a cooking show (my Pampered Chef Cooking Show) he says this:
"A cooking show? Oh my gawd mommy, does that mean Rachael Ray is coming over to MY house!?!"
haha that was hilarious..he was so serious. Poor guy, unfortunately he just got a bunch of middle aged hens gathering around and gossiping instead of his beloved Rach. Maybe next time. I wonder if she does house calls?

(Sidenote: I was just informed they say Nut Snack..but it sure doesn't sound like it. )
Giggles carried on into the late hours last night. They did make-overs and put on my high heels..It was funny. I should have got pictures but I was trying to keep Jack out of there because I knew if he went in there, the girls would take over and he would come out looking like this
I am doing some deep cleaning today. I am having a Pampered Chef show Thursday and the executive chef lady will be meandering in my kitchen and doing her thing. I am really excited. I love to host events. So far I have 7 ladies coming to eat and oogle over all the over-priced items in the catalog. Some of which we just have to have! I am personally getting some stone cookware, the citrus press and maybe the muffin scooper thingy. I don't know why I want that. I don't make tons of muffins, but I just need it. Weird.

I can't believe we have been to two movies..like within the same year. We are going to see Batman at 9:30. I am still trying to figure out how to smuggle in my Starbucks without spilling it all over me.
Anyway..I thought it would be neat to post 5 things about me you may not know. Since I really have nothing else so blog about this morning..why the hell not? Feel free to join in and dish out some goods.
1. I can't go to sleep at night if there is dirty dishes in my sink. (I suppose that's where my OCD comes in to play).
2. Most of the time during a meal I like to mix everything in a pile of glop and then eat it. I don't know why I do this, and I don't do it every time, maybe 85% of the time. Lily can't stand this. If she has 2 items on her plate she will do her damnedest to make sure the two never shall meet. Weird kid..
3. I hate my feet. My feet used to be cute and a perfect size of 7 1/2, however after birthing 2 babies they have since awkwardly grown into the feet of Mr. Flinstone and I am now sporting an 81/2. Ahh..the price we pay to populate the earth. :)
4. I will admit publicly on this here blog that I am totally obsessed with Jon and Kate Plus 8. I will watch any one that is on, even the reruns I have seen 43 times. Something comforting about them. Maybe it makes my life seem so much easier..haha Also, my husband would be so embarrassed if I put this too, but I loved 7Th Heaven and was so sad they took it off. Just recently I found reruns on the Hallmark Channel!! Woot!!
5. When I sleep at night I can never turn and face the inside of the bed..I always need to face outwards. I think this stems from once as a child my father snuck in my room while I was facing the opposite direction of the door and gave me a wet willie(sticking his finger in his mouth then proceeding to shove it down my ear canal. How freaking gross is that?) As a kid I probably had a small stroke. So now I will never face the opposite direction of the door. That way I can see anyone who attempts to scare the shit outta me. Its totally weird, I will wake myself up in the middle of the night and turn the other way if I had managed to face inward. Regardless of how comfortable I was.
What a fun way to live huh?
So tell me..dish it out....

(P.S. That is suppose to be me blowing you a smooch, but damn it I don't have photoshop yet. )
Justin had to come because I had no clue where to go and it was at night nonetheless.
After waiting for 20 minutes in the waiting room, some nurse calls me back, takes my vitals and sends me back in the waiting room because there are no rooms available at the time. It was so freaking crowded in there, it was nuts. Giant dude sneezing so loud and spewing bits of goo all over the place. Thankfully we were sitting on the opposite side of the waiting room so none of his wet snot-like substance could get us. Kids crying and throwing huge tantrums..(so glad it wasn't ours at the time, although normally it is.) The air conditioner must have been broke, because it was hot, muggy and stuffy in there. So know you get the picture of what it was like in the dreaded germ filled, hoarding sick people with various ailments room, we can continue to the actual visit with my MD.
OK..remember a while back I had to go to the doc because my c-section scar was messed up and weird? Ya that. Well I went and remember how they did a culture. The doc said take these here pills in case it is this weird bacteria called "Merca'. We will call you if there is something of concern on your culture. remember no news is good news.
So I took a few pills and waited. No call. Sweet. I can stop taking these dang antibiotics..the make me feel like shit and I was always on the verge of barfing. oh so fun.
Anyway, the doc takes one look at my thigh and immediately says' Oh my god, that's infected, that's really bad'. Then he looks on his handy dandy computer and says' oh I see you were just here on June 10th and had a staph infection,'..Huh??
I told him, yeah I was and but I didn't have anything because no one phoned to let me know. He looks a little uncomfortable in his stool and says ' Someone should have let you know you had a staph infection, it came back on your culture"
Damn it..no one freaking called me.
HE asks me if I know for sure if this was a spider bite. Uh no.. I was just assuming. He said it could have started off as a small scratch and turned into this. Apparently one in five people are carriers for staph...AND it is in your nose!!!
Apparently the whole time what I thought were to be wicked bad spider bites and/or flea bites, could have been a scratch from who knows what and since I had staph it made it worse.
So once again I am on the same antibiotics as I had before. Then he gave me this antibacterial wash in which I need to scrub in the shower with daily..(it is orange and it stinks..bleh) and if that wasn't bad enough..I have this other stuff..some weird ointment that I have to put on my fingers and shove them up my nose and massage my nostrils..3 times a day.
Dear god what next!?!
Had I not gone to the doc, apparently I would have spiked a totally high fever and my leg would have swelled even more.
This totally explains alot. The fact that I always seem to have something going on with me..some type of sore or scratch. And plus the fact I feel crummy about 80% of the time. That's because my body is in overdrive, getting the little bastard bacterias out of me.
This blows..like big time..
Who would have known?
Certainly not me because the fuckers never even called to tell me.
OK..I am done..must go get it on with my nostrils.

A quick side note: Jack kept saying how delish this was and how he will be a big boy and eat all his food. He also said about 10 times "Mommy, this taste just like blueberry pie, its so good"
I have only used a quarter tank and I went so many places yesterday. 30 miles to a gallon is not to shabby me thinks.

After the flick I phone home to see if the babysitter was still alive and kicking. Sure enough Lily answered and I knew something was wrong. I could tell by her voice. mothers intuition I suppose. here is the following conversation:

Kitchen Nightmares returns soon and I can't wait for that..in the meantime..I am bringing Gordon home to play... :)
Wednesday, July 9, 2008
My hair is getting crazy long and instead of cutting it like I always end up doing I decided to get a bunch of hair accessories to jazz it up a bit so I won't get bored with it and chop it off.
The other night I had taken BOTH of them off (yes that's right, there were two of these cuties in the package) and set them on my dresser next to my bottle of water. Off to sleep I went. I woke once to drink some water. Five minutes later slumberville.
Fast forward a few hours to me waking to Salsa being totally annoying and wanting outside. Whatever.
She heads to the minuscule patch of greenery we have left and starts eating. I just figure she ate shit again or some of Jack's toys. Nothing new here. But you know come to thing about it, she hasn't had a vomit episode for over a month now..wow, that's impressive. I think that is a record for her.
After Justin is off to work and I make my coffee I make the kiddos some breakfast and go wonder to my room to make myself presentable..after all my tenants will be showing up at my house and paying rent..(I have this one, and only one tenant that I have to write out a receipt for and then he comes inside and talks to me for 5 hours..sigh..whatever).
I grab my water bottle which was empty from me chugging it in the middle of the night . Next I grab my two cutie pie clips that I just totally heart. Hmmm..theres only one. Maybe I knocked it over last night when I reached for my water. (I should note here that Salsa sleeps in our room and her bed right next to my side of the bed on the floor). I look under that..nothing. I look under my bed..nothing. Maybe it fell in my underwear drawer in the dresser. I dump the whole damn thing out looking for this clip. Can't find it anywhere. I get distracted again because Salsa needs to go out again and Lily wants coffee..(yeah she likes it now that I taught her to make it..I give her like a smidge in a tea cup and of course just like her mama she needs a little coffee with her creamer..haha and we drink together and toast the day together. She loves it and feels so grown up..its cute)
Salsa is out frantically searching for some more green. Sorry doggie dog, you ate the last two strands of green weeds last night, your shit out of luck.
Then like a freight train it finally hits me. Duh..I knocked it over last night when I grabbed my water. I just picture it now..in slow motion falling and heading straight for the K9 vacuum. NNNOOOOO!!!!! It awakened the eating machine and promptly eats my lovely hair thingy.
Bingo. She totally ate my clip and that's why she is having tummy issues. Grrr..that dog is driving me up the wall and around the corner. How many times does she have to eat some random object before she learns her lesson. The other day Justin ate a hot dog and left the napkin on the love seat. Well duh..that's snack time for Salsa..I came into the living room and saw her blissfully eating it.
Any sane person would just say..'hey go back to Target and buy another set' ..however I bought the very last one. And I am not going to spend another $6 for them either. Frugal is my middle name now that I am getting my car and my insurance is more than the car payment!
I am just waiting for Salsa to barf or crap it out..then I'll clean it off and put back in my hair...
Totally kidding, thats disguting! Although thats what Lily had mentioned to do! Haha
Oh and look at these..aren' they so freakin' cute? I love these lil' muffins. I used the tiny muffin tin from Pampered Chef to make like 5 thousand of these things. Adorable!
