One Day Surgery!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry for not posting yesterday. I came into work and realized that the sinus pressure building in my head was stopping me from doing anything at work. I left work at around 10am and took myself to the walk in clinic. They got me hooked up with an antibiotic and,  honestly I fee much better even after three doses.

Last night was a little tough, because we knew in the morning that Everett was getting tubes in his ears. If anyone doesn’t know what they are or what they do I’ll tell ya! They are literal tubes that are inserted in the ear drum to allow fluid to drain properly, and not build up and cause infections. For babies like Everett, must be put to sleep for a few minutes since they move a lot and don’t listen, so that is the freaky part. So my wife and I had a restless night thinking about things that could go wrong.

This morning we got up around 5:50am and had to get him there by 6:30am. So it was an early start. They checked him over and then had us get him ready in his little gown. He was tired and not sure what was going on.

After a little while they gave him the pre-op medicine that made him loopy, which was kind of funny after it kicked in. You can tell he was getting goofy.

His head was getting heavy and he was getting sleepy again. The doctors and anesthesiologist came out ad talked us through everything.

Here is a short video of Everett just feeling the loopy juice.

They took him back, which was hard for us, because we didn’t have control over what was going to happen for the next 10 minutes. We sat in the waiting room and tried to stay as calm as we could. When they were done we were called in to talk with the doctor and go over how everything went. He let us know everything went perfectly and that we could go see him in post-op. He was still coming out of the anesthesia, so he was floaty and not sure what to think. So he was crying and not happy. We were able to feed him before we left, since he hadn’t eaten in 12 hours.

By the time we got him in the car he was asleep. I hope when we comes out of his nap that he is feeling a ton better.

I am clearly back at work and trying to play catch up from the last two days.

That is it for me today! I hope you are having a great Wednesday, and I’ll see you all back tomorrow! 😀 😀

Wedding & Productive Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

I would like to start off by saying sorry for missing Friday’s post. Whoopsies! In all seriousness I didn’t for get I was tasked with a really difficult project. It has all been sorted out as of this morning but it was something I was not very familiar with, so it took a while. It was a macro enabled Excel sheet that got all jacked up from the latest Office update. I has to go through the VBA code with the guy who wrote it and figure out what we could do. It really did take all day haha.

Secondly I want to send a shout out to Riley, from Riley’s Backpack! A while back you might remember him and his friends wanted to raise enough money on their Go Fund Me page to renew their domain and keep it ad free. I helped them out with what I could, and in return He send me a hand written letter. I wanted to say thank you and let you know you did indeed get my name correct haha 😀

Saturday the little family and I went to a wedding! It was not just any wedding, it was her father’s wedding to his long time girlfriend. They now have a baby boy well over one year old and finally got hitched. You can see all three of them below.

I know it isn’t the best picture but our little buddy kept getting fussy and we did end up leaving sooner than we intended to. It was a quaint little wedding in a nice Catholic church. The reception was on the lake in a really nice dining hall. The trip was a bit lengthy and I wasn’t super fond of that but it was all worth it.

Before we went to the wedding we stopped for lunch at my wife’s grandparent’s house. He had pumpkins waiting for him and wanted pictures with him up on his tractor. So that is what went down. Here is a shot of Everett Hugh and his great grandfather Francis Hugh!

Once we got home that evening we hit the hay.

Sunday started out pretty lazy, as intended, but wound up being quite productive. We didn’t quite have a frost but it was damn close. We had some morning coffee from our new coffee bar, and watched Netflix in our pajamas. We did have quite a bit to do and honestly got most of it done. We had your standard weekend cleaning, on top of laundry since we were gone the whole day before. I took out all the trash, hung Halloween lights, and mowed the grass. Later in the day I had a lady come look at the pellet stove I am selling, and I hope to hear back from her soon. My parents came over and brought Chinese for dinner. That was a great way to round out the weekend.

On a, probably over protective note, our boy has what looks like a small red-ish rash looking spot on his chin. Since we were around a bunch of people recently we don’t want him to have anything wrong with him. You hear all of the horror stories about babies getting bad viruses and we really hope it is nothing. I think I’ll call the doctor after lunch.

Again I apologies for missing Friday but I’ll be back again tomorrow. I’ll see you then! 😀 😀

Beauty And The Beast Thoughts & More

The acting was good, in my opinion. Josh Glad plays a good LeFou, even though they had to get political and push a sexual orientation agenda. Again in my opinion, if you are going to remake a classic follow the script.

Hey Everyone!

I am glad to see you all back again. This weekend was fairly eventful. As you know Friday I went to watch ‘Beauty and the Beast’ with my wife. Turns out the showing that we went to was in 3-D:

I am not a fan of 3-D movies, but we were already there haha. The next showing wasn’t for three hours, and by then it would be a full house. We got in just fine and found our seats. Towards the middle but on the end, so my wife had easy access to the aisle. As far as the movie goes I was generally pleased. I figured I would be. Most of the story line was followed, which is good for a movie based on a classic. The acting was good, in my opinion. Josh Glad plays a good LeFou, even though they had to get political and push a sexual orientation agenda. Again in my opinion, if you are going to remake a classic follow the script. There is no need to add a bunch of things and change people, it became a classic for a reason. As for the special effects, outstanding! You would have to know that the majority of the movie is computer generated, you know like the whole castle, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and the rest. It must have taken such a long time to get that all correct and they did a great job. I would absolutely that everyone go see it before it is out of theaters. If you like the Disney classics, you really won’t want to miss this live action movie!

Switching gears, my Saturday started out by taking more boxes over to my parent’s house. We have had so many items delivered to our house in such a short time that we had a million cardboard boxes. I went to burn the ones I still had, as shown here:

The amount that I had was next to nothing compared to what my ddad still had in his garage from all of my other stuff! Check all that out:

It was packed in every little spot. With my fresh batch of cardboard being gone quickly I decided to do it all. I was there for about two hours burning it all. We made sure to separate and throw away most of the plastic and Styrofoam. After that I went home and got ready for the game night we were going to host! We decided that we would set up a homemade sub bar, and let everyone make their own, even toast it up in the oven. My brother and soon to be sister in-law brought cupcakes from their wedding cake testing, and buffalo chicken dip. My wife and I had all the sub stuff and chocolate cookies, and my mom and dad brought drinks and Doritos. We played that Telestrations game we just bought and had a blast. Here is a quick picture that I took. There you can see my dad, mom, dog, brother, and my wife. The niece and soon to be sister in-law were in the other room.

Sunday I picked up my brother to go to my company gym. I have been on a diet for a little over a week and have lost 12lbs by eating right, with minimal exercise. Contrary to what you thought I ate Saturday. I only had my sub and some wine. 😀 Anyway, I met up with him at 10am and hit the gym. I was able to run 2 miles and walk another. My legs today are still feelin the burn.

If you are curious as to what my diet plan is I can gladly let you know! Contact me any way you would like. I have just been eating too unhealthy and gaining too much unwanted weight, so I’m doing something about it. All while still hating exercise haha. The rest of the day was spent with my wife, who didn’t feel very good. We watched about seven episodes of Shameless.

I hope you all had a great weekend like I did! I hope you have had a good time here today. I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow. C-ya! 😀 😀
