WARNING!! gruesome photo below....

my old girl kristy had her surgery yesterday. they removed a tumor that was pressing right on her butthole. it was golfball sized. it was full of fluid & necrotic tissue that didn't look good or normal. i did not pay the xtra $$ for the pathology b/c i really don't want to know or not if it's cancer. her lymph nodes were also swollen, but she has a slight infection in her bad leg also. poor girl...she was put threw the ringer yesterday. she was drugged when i picked her up. she was still acting normal but her eyes were half closed, it was funny to see her looking like that. i can tell she's hurting today, who wouldn't be?! i could only get this pic b/c she was eating for the 1st time since mon night. :) she didn't care what i was doing to her.... hopefully she'll get a good day of rest in & be feeling like her old(annoying) self in no time.

i didn't pass my test. this really sucks, no other word can describe it. apparently each test is different & you never know which one you're gonna get & i just happened to get one that pertained to vascular & cardio stuff. stuff that i have NO idea about. i mean i studied some of it in my study guides, but nothing i studied was on there.
i missed it by 10 points...
i've been really upset with myself & was so pissed yesterday! i studied so much for this, not to mention paid $290 for it, and i failed!!!
what's done is done. i know that i did the best i could & i felt as prepared for it as i could. will go on. it's not like i need this for my job, i just wanted to have it to say i have it. and i'm NOT going to be taking it again any time soon. i could care less about it right now.

on to other things. here's a pic of our new tv. it's a BIG step up for us & we absolutely LOVE it. it'es amazing, don't know what else to see. and currently we are watching some of the olympics on it.

and here's a pic of my new project for the house. this is the corner of my kitchen. there's plenty of room for a table & chairs there but i don't want that. we have stools at our island
& we mainly eat at the dining room table. my idea is to put a bench on one wall with baskets for storage underneath with a rack with hooks on it above it. i have nowhere to hang my purse or diaper bag when i come in the house so i could use this space to my advantage. on the other wall i want to paint it with chalkboard paint & frame it with wood. i think finny would like that & i can leave all my honey do's on it for dan. :)
what do you think of my idea? i've been looking on craigslist everyday for awhile now but haven't found anything yet. i'm in no hurry though.

on the way home today from st.augustine finn & i stopped in a used furniture store to check things out. i found our full size guest bed headboard/footboard there. it's old & beat up & real maple & i LOVE it. i asked the dude there if i could look out back at all his beat up stuff & he showed me a dust covered filthy queen headboard. i said, "I'll take it!". he wanted $10 for it. it's probably 30-40 years old & has much more character then the one we have right now. so when my parents come in 2 weekends we'll head on down & pick it up. i'm so excited!! i love finding steals like this. i so much prefer older furniture compared to new. so much more character & love knowing it's old & it's been used.

well, good night everyone! sleep tight!

a few pics & a prayer request

here's a few pics from bedtime tonight. finn likes to play peek-a-boo when i put him in his crib...

i just love this little dude!

and on to my prayer request....

tomorrow morning i am taking my certification test for surgical technology. i've been scrubbing now for 9 plus yrs & am just now getting my certification. it hasn't been a big deal in the past, most place have never required it. but recently i've noticed that more hospitals are. i go! this is not an easy test. please pray that i will do well tomorrow. i've been studying for awhile now so i feel like i've done my best & i am pretty much ready for it. i will find out right then & there if i passed or not. i'm trying not to be nervous, so far so good.
but, if you can please remember me in your prayers tomorrow morning. i take the test from 9-1. yikes!

after i'm done with that, finn & i are heading down to st.augustine to spend the night with deedee & to do a yard sale at her house saturday morning. her house is now on the market. :)

heading to bed early tonight after my ice cream!
night night

this is our solution...

for now. we shall wait & see. although, the little man was much better today. yay!! and he loved this milk tonight. gulped it right down & got mad b/c he wanted more. that's my man!

now if only i hadn't had to work late & only gotten to see my boy for an hour before bed. it's so hard sometimes!!

time for bed.
was woken up a lot last night with finn.

oh, i'm worried about my boy.... i think he has a milk allergy. i could be jumping the gun, but i have this gut feeling about it. dan will be taking him to the dr's tomorrow so we'll see what they say. he's had a skin rash now for 3 weeks that they are clueless about, he's not been hardly eating anything the last 2 weeks except crackers & cheerios, he's thrown up twice now tonight. i mean heavy almost projectile vomiting. i went in about half an hour ago to check on him & i immediately smelled the vomit. the poor guy had thrown up in his crib & it was everywhere. the sheet, his blankets, the bumper pad, even on the railing & the carpet. he had been laying in it & his hair was all crusty. so dan got him out & bathed him while i cleaned everything up. what a smelly mess!!! i feel so bad for the little guy. he hadn't complained or anything while he was in his crib. i don't know, i just have this feeling that it has to do with milk. i don't know why, but i do... i hope he can sleep tonight & not get sick anymore. he threw up earlier when we were out to dinner. lovely. luckily we were in a booth in the back & no one was around b/c it wasn't pretty..

on a side note, i can't believe the colts are going to lose the super bowl. what happened peyton? so disappointed...:(

here's a pic of my little sick dude with his daddy. i'm so worried about him, i don't like it when he's not well...
