Something other than "you know what"

I don't really have anything to blog about, but I was sick of seeing the title of my last post at the top of the page. But since we're on that subject, I don't think my menopause symptoms have begun yet, but what happened last week was much worse. (I think.) Ugh, why did I bring this up? I don't really want to talk about THIS on my blog...

Let's just say that I lost a lot of blood that night and the next day. And the day after that. It was so bad at one point that I could hardly stand on my own, couldn't walk, couldn't drive, nothing. I was so weak. Then I started getting a lot of swelling in my ankles and couldn't even move my feet around. It was really terrifying. I made several calls to my doctor (some of which were not pleasant), a couple ideas were tossed around about how to stop it, but they all involved pumping my body full of even more hormones & pills, so I decided to just hope & pray that it stopped on it's own. And finally, it did. So now I'm waiting for what he calls, "The Crash." He guesses it will occur tomorrow and that is because it takes a week for the injection to kick in and when it does, all of your hormone levels surge and then crash. I really don't know exactly what that means, but it sure doesn't sound pleasant. I'll let you know when it happens.

Now onto "something other" than all that...

First, I'd like to say that I'm proud to be living in (near) a city of champions. Not only did the super duper Steelers win the NFL championship this year, now the Penguins (hockey) are headed to the NHL championship next week. So cool. And check out this huge sign that my cousin has in his yard.





































I am all caught up on my shows now (which saddens me) except one (DH). There were quite a few good cliffhangers, but the shockingest ones of all were Grey's Anatomy (except I knew that Izzie & George were leaving the show and would therefore die, just not that way. 007?! Oh my!) and Private Practice (hello?!?!? that was totally gruesome!) Now I'm just waiting to see what happens over the summer. Not really into the Bachelorette, although I enjoy reading other people's recaps. Tonight I plan on watching the premiere of The Goode Family. I think it's totally awesome that finally being "green" isn't necessarily "cool." haha! Of course, though, I am not endorsing this show since I haven't seen it yet myself. You be the judge yourself. But speaking of judging, since it's a Mike Judge production, it should be funny. Hello, Office Space!


I think that's all I have for you today. Kind of slow week around here. You know, just sitting around waiting to crash and all.

I just got caught up on DH last night! Glad I wasn't the only one behind. :) Let me know what you think after you watch it.

Hope your "crash" wasn't too bad. I haven't heard of something like that before. I'll keep praying!

So are George and Izzie REALLY leaving??? If so, I'm not sure I'll be able to watch the show :( Private Practice has really started to be my fav now anyway, and you are not kidding that cliffhanger was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!
