Some Good, Bad, Ugly and Beautiful

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Literary genius in this post? I think not. I feel like I've been gone from here forever and I have a lot to take care of before I can get with the posts of the Diva-ness of my life.

So we'll begin with some good. My son, Michael, graduated Monday night! I'm writing a post about that now. The whole thing hit me hard.  He's our first adopted child and you can read a little of that here. Stop in and read it, it's pure awesomeness!

Here's a couple of shots of us that night.

Ok, here's some more good! One of my most treasured friends has given me an "Awesome" award!

You have to check her out if you haven't already. I love The Green Eyed Momster!  To accept this award I have to list six reasons that I'm awesome.
My first question to her is "only six?"

  • I have to be awesome because I have awesome friends! Either that or they really feel sorry for me. In that case I wouldn't be awesome at all, but rather pathetic. I sure hope that's not the case....hmmmmm.

  • I've raised a herd of kids and we all are still living, meaning that I've not been featured on COPS or America's Most Wanted, yet.

  • I'm a kick-ass cook, well, when I want to be. I'm even better at reservations.

  • I have interrogation techniques that rival the best of law enforcement's interrogators. The kids will tell you that they will break, I will find out and then, well I can't tell you what happens then. I also have a fool proof way of telling if they're lying to me. Parents feel free to email me and I'll fill you in on a little tip from one of my favorite Boys in Blue (here you can read Hot Cop with the HUGE arms, oh my.)

  • I'm adventurous.

  • My Dad was proud of me when he died.
I also need to award six other awesomized (borrowing that word from an awesomized friend of mine) ones, but I'm too tired tonight to choose. I need to do that this week.

Now on to some ugly. I know I'm getting out of order, but it's my post! (foot stomping going on now!) The mustang was not won by anyone. Get this shit, the dealership "donated" the car to the school's athletic department so they could raise money. Here's the catch, they drew finalists out of a hopper. Then you had to roll dice. You'd think, ok, best roll wins right? HA! The dice had stars on all sides but one. The remaining sides had the letters G E N T R Y. You had to roll and spell the word. Odds of winning 1 in 42,000. So I think that's a bunch of crap. The dealership knew that they wouldn't be losing a thing. Scoundrels!

The bad. I got a call from one of my doctors today. I've had blood tests done five times now, once a month. My white blood cell count continues to fall. I am, though, on a medication that has a rare side effect of lowering white blood cells, but the prescribing doctor said that in all of her years of practice she's never seen it happen in a patient. NOT reassuring. She is lowering that medication beginning tomorrow and we'll test again in another month. Really hoping against odds that it's the medication. The other possibilities aren't so rosy, as a matter of fact they're all pretty grim.

Called my primary doc and pretty much freaked out on the M.A. (I wonder if that was the bipolar or the Diva in me?) I told them I want NO more "I think" or "probably" I want absolutes! They're referring me to a specialist but I can't get in there until June 29th. Meanwhile, I continue to hang in limbo.
If they give me ANY flack at all I'm calling in my favorite guys at the best biker bar in the WORLD, the Four Horse Saloon!  If you check them out go to the gallery. Yeah, I'm cool, I'm in some of the pics along with my brother, Eric, and my bestie Angela.

Now on to the beautiful. She's probably the closest person on earth to me and she's just started a blog! The Green Eyed Brat is her place and she's in a quandary and needs some advice. Tell how cool her header is too, I made it, OK, maybe I'm feeling a little insecure and just want the kudos. How about tell her if you like it or not? Also tell her that she NEEDS to put up a pic, the girl is smokin' hot! She's really cool, leave her some comments to encourage her to post more.  And so you know, my advice to her in my comment is right on target...heehee. Not sure if she's seen it and moderated it yet though.

Now to all my new followers, thank you so much and I'll get to you as soon as I can. I've been swamped with graduation, doctors and all other kinds of rather time consuming things. I also have SO much reading to do. I've missed out on everyone's blogs, not good for a blog addiction.

I take absolutely no responsibility for any misspellings, grammar errors or incomplete thoughts tonight since I took my medications before posting tonight. Oh well you all are used to that.

I totally appreciate your pride about your son's graduation. My daughter graduated Sunday. :) Congrats on your award, and I hope that your med tests do come back better!

Tonia Lee Smith June 16, 2010 at 5:20 AM  

Congratulations to him and to you! It's such an accomplishment to the rest of your life.

That car dealership is a crook!!!! I wonder if they're putting the donation down in their tax returns... That really pissed me off!!! They should have donated and backed off and let the school take care of the donation itself and how it was done... I'm foot-stomping along with you!

The Good: Congrats @ his graduation. Proud Momma and Poppa moment.

The Ugly: Par for the course, car salesmen. 'Nuff said.

The Bad: Fingers crossed that it's the meds, Diva.

The Beautiful: Cool header and following.

What a week! Yay for Michael; you must be so proud. I'm having a difficult time imagining my son starting school, so the whole graduation thing pretty much makes me shiver uncontrollably.

I hope these assy doctors get their shit together and figure out what the hell is going on. I don't like this no answer bullshit.

Oh, and I've had half an email to you sitting in my drafts folder for like seventeen years. I'll see if I can't pound the rest of it out today. ;)

Take a deep breathe and go with the flow of what your inner you wants to do

Micheal's birth story was so beautiful. Kudos to you for being strong enough to deny the request. Congrats to Michael on his graduation! Did Nikki graduate this year too? I'm know you are so proud of them all. I can't believe the did that crap and basically stole people's money in that contest. They should have spelled out what each step was going to be to win the car. Jerks. Congrats on your award. I hope your doctors have some answers for you soon.

Nolie June 16, 2010 at 7:39 AM  

Life sure has been busy. Congratulations to your son on graduating. Hope the docs figure this shit out soon.

Monkey Man June 16, 2010 at 9:43 AM  

Quite the update. Low white cell count - yikes. Went through the same thing myself, but I knew the cause: chemotherapy. Hope all turns out well for you.

Jeannie, Jane, Angel, Mommy, etc.. June 16, 2010 at 11:07 AM  

Congrats on the Graduation. My little one's are 2 and 6 months and I am already dreading the day they graduate. Yes, I'm a freak! I hope they figure out the white blood cell count. Monkey's dropped for awhile becuase of te medication she was on. It was scary, but alright. Hopefully the same will happen for you.

Cheryl D. June 16, 2010 at 12:22 PM  

I'm so sorry about the bad part of your post. I'm really hoping it's the medication that's causing this. Keeping fingers crossed! Oh, that Mustang dealership can just f*!k off. What a$$holes.

Kimberly Walker June 16, 2010 at 7:46 PM  

Don't worry we still love you!

Unknown June 16, 2010 at 7:57 PM  

Congrats on your oldest graduating, go kick the dealerships ass, I'm sure it's the meds and everything will be ok, congrats on the award! Oh and you are a super fine MILF....

I think I covered everything =)

JoJo June 17, 2010 at 12:14 AM  

Congrats on the graduation and the award!! Oh, and why do all your doctors keep telling you they've never seen anything like this before. What have they seen? blah.
"Everything's gonna be alright everything's gonna be okay :-)"

A most awesome post! I imagined I heard this, playing in the background, while I read:,_The_Bad_And_The_Ugly__Main_Title.wav

Sorry about the long link, I've no idea how to make a clicky one.

Shanna June 18, 2010 at 3:59 PM
