Around The Water Cooler!

Hey Everyone!

A bit late today but never the less, I am here.

I had a few unexpected events happen today. First I was asked by my coworker to go give blood. It was out of the blue and I hadn’t done it in a while so I figured, why not? So around 10:45am we left the office ans went and gave blood across town. It was at his wife’s place of business so it was laid back and kinda fun.

Later, after we arrived back at the office, I was invited to go out to lunch with one of our vendors. This particular vendor comes from an hour and a half away and hits multiple client spots all in the same day. This time he was taking us out to lunch and just chatting about our current projects. We went to a nice little dive in town that I had never eaten atΒ  before, surprisingly. I ordered a turkey panini with cajun french fries. It was really good! I’m going to have to take my wife there some time soon.

In other news Everett woke up today not feeling well, I guess. My wife called me and told me that he was just laying and staring. He wasn’t very active and looked like he wasn’t having a good morning. 😦 He seemed fine last night and slept all night without any issues. She thinks that he may be just teething and we both hope it is nothing more. I just text her and she said he was playing a bit more than he was, so hopefully he is feeling better.

This weekend we have a few things to do around the house, like taking down our pool and possibly our umbrella in the yard. Saturday we have my niece’s second birthday party, down at the park where we play softball. It should be a good time, and if Everett is up for it, he can play with his cousins. I’m not sure if we have anything going on Sunday, but we may go work on the cabin some more to try and button things up for winter.

That is all from me today. I hope you all have had a great Friday, and I hope you have a great weekend! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Emergency Room Scare!

Hey Everyone!

Like I thought, I wasn’t really able to post anything yesterday. I sometimes have to cover for a co-worker when she is off work, and yesterday was one of those days. She works a funky shift, and it is hard to get anything going. On top of that like the title states we had a bit of an issue the night before, that shift. Everything is, seemingly, fine now but meh.

Lets start Monday morning. I signed up to give blood at work, like I always do. The machine for double red blood cells was free, and I asked if I was able to give more. They checked everything over and cleared me to give double reds. They basically take more of your red blood cells and in the process put your plasma and saline back in periodically. I have done this before and it has been no big deal. Towards the end I felt a little light headed but nothing out of the ordinary after losing two pints of blood haha. After I sat down and have a juice, brownie, and pretzels to keep my energy up. I returned to work like normal and ran through the rest of my day. Later that evening I ran to Lowes with my brother and got a chest freezer and groceries with my wife. I kept the “heavy lifting” to a minimum, but maybe I still over did it. It was early to bed since I had to get up much earlier, but when I got off the couch I got some weird blurry vision and my head felt really weird. I went up stairs and started having a panic attack. So that surely didn’t help anything. I told my wife to pack up the baby and take me to the ER. I was feeling better for the most part but wanted to check it out anyway. I forgot to mention when they put in the needle to take my blood it wasn’t going in my vein easy so they have to mess with it. The doctor said that the red on my arm could be a blown vein or hematoma.

Either way I knew that it would bruise, I just didn’t think this was normal. I also had a weird fluid like pain in my ears when I moved my head, as well as a funny feeling in the back of my sinuses. The ER doctor and my aunt, who is in the medical field both thought it had nothing to do with giving blood, but I can assure you that none of this happened until right after I did. I slept that night and woke fine in the morning. Worked my early shift and went home. Once home I started getting a headache and that intense ear pain again. I still haven’t got any answers! I slept fine again and feel great yet again. I’m curious to see how tonight will go. Am I going to have this crap happen again? Who knows.

So long story short I didn’t have anything to post yesterday haha.

Here at work I did get my cork board and had it hung up!

I can now see all my stuff without having to find a file somewhere else. Yippie! I’m gearing up to work on a few more PCs that just came in the mail, and get ready to cover my other co-worker since he will be off for about a damn month in like two weeks. He is going on a church mission to 11 countries in Europe! How fancy is that? I wish I wasn’t afraid to fly because I would love to go to Europe.

Anyway that is about all from me today. I’ll keep you posted on anything new and exciting. Oh, I also finished the 5th season of “Orange is the New Black.” I won’t say anything because I know most people still haven’t finished it, but it is pretty good!

I’ll be back again tomorrow. I hope to see you then! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
