I cant spell

Thanks to my wonderful bitch ho Andee, who so politly informed me that I had forgotten my second "o" in my blog title Too Strung Up To Sleep. I cant spell if my life depended on it, and didnt even realize I had spelled it wrong. Yes, I am that cool.

This is funny!

I've determined that most of my friend would never read "Life's LittleInstruction Book" or at least not follow the rules. So here are somethat you will all enjoy, taken from "Life's Little Destruction Book."

Signal left, turn right
If the mistake is in your favor, don't correct it
Tell the ending of movies
Cut people off in the middle of their sentences
Develop a convenient memory
Tailgate the elderly
Develop a truly tasteless foul mouth
Blow out other people's birthday candles
If there is going to be a fight, make sure you start it
Reserve compliments for people who can do you some good
Accuse, Confuse, and Refuse
Put off until tomorrow whatever you can o the day after tomorrow
Focus on winning and to hell with how you play the game
Revenge is sweet, get some
Get a backseat driver's license
Change the rules to suit your moods
Always have an ulterior motive
Pee in the swimming pool
Bite your dentist's finger
Make animal noises in libraries
Procrastinate and someone else will surely do it
Bitch, Bitch, Bitch
Play mind games
Disturb the peace
Jump to conclusions
Be a bad sport
Answer the phone with "what do you want?"
Always be right

And last but not least: Don't get caught!

Just Another Monday

Not much going on today. We might be going to Utah to go skiing (we'll Boy to go snowboarding since I cant). Were having trouble booking the flights because the airline keeps blocking out our flights out there. That and we can only get one ticket with the Sky Miles we have because their expired which isnt a problem because I can activate them at any time. It will just take 8-12 weeks before I see them and thats definaly going before then. And regular tickets are fucking retardedly expenisve. I Boy to take my moms points and go. I dont mind staying home. I cant ski anywat right now and one of us should be able to have fun.

That and I hate flying. Those long trips kill my leg. That and its impossible to get comfortable so all I do is squerm and it suck. As much as I want to go to Utah because its beautiful and they have some great trails and rocks climbing, I would rather stay home and keep healing. I really dont care if he goes. I would love for him to go though. It would be a nice break and he'll have a great time and traveling..

Also ftlled on an app. For The township possition is for a clerk/dispatch possition. I hope I get. I;ll be going to into interview, *again* if i get it.

Ok, pain meds and sleeping pills are kicking in so Im going to bed. I can bearly see, let alone type without nodding off.

Back Home

So we got back from Higgins Lake tonight. There's a bad ice storm coming in and no one wanted to drive in it tomorrow so we all decided to leave tonight.

It was a relaxing day. I hung out with the Boys friends wife, Danielle. She's super nice and we went to this GIANT craft store in town and it was awesome. They had everything in there. I saw some sock yarn I have never seen by Lion Brand. But other then that, their yarn selection kinda sucked. But their other craft stuff was cool. SOOOO much scrap booking stuff I couldnt believe it. Some awesome beads I was looking at for stitch markers I want to make for my site. I plan on making sweet custom stitch markers for the site. Every knitter and hooker needs a good set of stitch markers. I did buy a panoramic picture frame while I was there because its the first place in almost 3 years I could find one. Im putting this super cute picture of Boy and I at the race track in it.

George (my knee) is KILLING me. I was on it all day and I had to walk over uneven snow up north because they got a foot the night before we got there so nothing was shoveled. I thought I was going to die by the time I got all the way up to the cottage and up the stairs. George was having none of this nonesense. He gave up so I couldnt walk. Then walking through craft store, my brace was sqeaking. It was so annoying. You could here me walking from the next isle over. I need some WD-40 for it.

Im really against knitting baby clothes because I hate kids. Period. But the little girl Boys co-worker has is really cute and I want to test some patterns out on her so Im all for it at the moment. That and I dont have to buy the yarn, because Danielle is, so all I have to do is knit. I have plenty of time for that. Plus baby clothes are really fast to knit so it wont take long.

OK, Im ready for bed.

Valentines Day Sucks

Yes, Valentines day does suck. Its a lame holiday that makes single people, and non single people whose spouses dont believe in it, feel like shit. So I say BOOO to Valentines Day.

Tuesday was not a good day. I had my one week Doctors appointment which did go good. Got my steary stiches off, got a good look at the incisions, then they put more on. Got the okay to have full 90 degree's of motion, and the okay to not wear my brace if I dont want too (yesss!). But my knee was Killing me. It was bad. PT was even worse. I cried. George (Tia's affectionate name for my knee) just didnt want to work with me. It was stiff, didnt want to bend and wanted to fight with me the whole way. I couldnt get the pain to stop. I was up all night, again. This deep, bone jarring, aching just wont stop. The pain meds wont even work.

We might be going up to Boyne this weekend so Boy and another guy he works with can go snowboarding. The other guys wife is coming with their new baby, who actually is almost one I think. She had her 2 weeks before Boy broke his neck last year on march 8th. Ah, anyway, it should be nice. I might hang out at the hill with them or I might hang out with the wife in the cabin. Either way I get to knit and read so I dont care.

I had my first "buisness" meeting on Monday morning with a yarn rep. It was so cool. It took about three hours to go through the lines I wanted to carry and we wrote up 3 orders. Im not going to put all 3 in at once, we just wrote them up so I can remember what yarn I want in what color and how much of it.
I still have to go to the county clerks office to to get my tax ID, open the buisness bank account along with a credit/debt card and Im on my way. I cant wait till it finally opens!!

Start them engines!

NHRA drag racing has offically started today!! Im so excited I could pee myself. I love drag racing so much. Granted its only qualifing, but its racing just the same. Finals are on tomorrow. Im a bit bummed though because my favorite race, Melanie Troxel moved from Top Fuel to Funny Car this year. I think she rocked more in Top Fuel.

Anyway, Monday is my first "offical" meeting for my buisness. I admit, Im alittle geeked. Im meeting with a yarn rep. to go over different lines of yarn I want to carry and pricing. Im excited. Things really seem to be moving along. Being off because of my knee is helping too because I have alot of time on my hands.

My knee hurts like hell. Its a different kind of hurt now. Its the deep, bone jarring pain that I assume comes when they drill holes into your bones. Its aching and I just cant get it confortable. Its driving me fucking crazy. And the pain pills really arent helping this pain either.

I got presents in the mail yesterday from my girlies on Tia and Kelly sent me a "care package" to make me feel better. I got some super sweet sock yarn from Knitting Like Crazy in the colorway named, and Im sure it was on purpose, Ski Trip. Ill take pics of it later. Its a great sock yarn that is dyed by hand at . She'll also custom dye for you. Check her out, its worth it. I also got some beautiful stitch markers, an awesome smelling candle, a cute little project bag from Kelly from Chix, and some German Chocolate cheesecake lipbalm (sooo yummy!). It made me feel so good to open it. Lets me know my girls care about me.

I also got another present in the mail today from my friend Dave, who is in the band Woodward, which is absolutly fucking awesome. I seriously suggest you check them out because they fucking rock!! He sent me a CD of them to help make me feel better, which it did. Their music makes me happy, and I love listening to it. You must also check them out I insist. And if you dont check them out, I'll eat your first born child!! Okay, just kidding, I wont eat your first born, but I might inflict bodily harm.

ANGRY KNEE!!!! This is how it feels most of the time.
That and this picture is funny as hell.


Why am I up at this ungodly hour? Well, the pain meds arent working and neither are the sleeping pills. So Im currently flipping between Candyman and Law & Order. Boy gets up in an hour and half and my cooling machine is warm because it needs more ice.

If anyone knows how to design banner links, or things of the such, let me know. Im gonna need some for advertising the new buisness on websites.

Jesus Christ, I just wanna go to sleep...

Its Thrusday. Nothing much going on except for the over a foot a snow we got last night. I get to dig my car out of snow to go to PT. Grrr.... My knee is looking pretty good though. I have an incision on my thigh that you cant see.

Wednesday, February 6, 2008


Ok, I discovered a little boil looking thing that was seeping on my knee a little while ago when I unwrapped it. Normally it wouldnt be a big deal, but the UFO isnt near any of my incisions so Im thinking its not a good thing. Im morbig to I took some pictures of it so i can send them to the doctor before I go in because its snowing really hard outside and I dont want to go out if I dont have too. That and I can get ahold of the doctors office, suprise, suprise.

To sleep or not to sleep

I guess PT really got the best of me yesterday. I could bearly move last night and was in so much pain. The pain wouldnt go away and I couldnt get confortable all night. Oh well. There isnt much I can do about it other then wait it out....unfortunatly. I guess a couple of hours of sleep is better then nothing.

On the plus side, I have two appointments with yarn reps over the next two weeks so I can start to get my finally orders pulled together and get a final figure. The silent partner though is screwing with my budget though and is making it really hard to get a decent selection of yarn for the first order.

And its snowing. Again. Grrr....

No Wonder it hurts...

Well Im doing okay today. My lower incision has been hurting me alot yesterday and today. When I went to the doctors this morning and he removed my dressings I found out why, its where they drilled into my bone! No wonder it hurts so much.

My knee does look really good the doc says. It isnt that swollon and my incisions havent bled or seeped at all. The scope images And I've been able to bear wieght on it since I got out of the hospital bed, which is really good. I can also walk on it without the brace on as well. At Psyical Therapy the therapist said Im ahead of schedule because I can bear wieght on it and Im able to bend my knee and straighten it alot. My muscles are still strong.

But dont get me wrong, my knee is killingme right now. Its aching like a son of a bitch from bending it at PT. Im hooked up to my Game Ready cooling machine as we speak (or type). Im still on alot of pain meds today but hopefully tomorrow I can start not taking them as much. Im aiming for pain meds only on PT days, which is 3 days a week. Ouch!

In the clouds

Well surgery went great. Im still really high on the good pain meds from the hospital and Im sure once those wear off Im gonna be pissed off. I this HUGE brace thing on thats locked so I cant bend my knee and I have my Game Ready cooling machine brace on that rocks.

Im super tired from being put under so I'll probably just sleep on and off for the rest of the day. I'll let you guys know how I feel tomorrow after Psyical Therapy, which will more then likely be pissed of and in alot of pain. Stupid knee....

Stop being a little bitch!

As a good friend of mine says, It must be pretty egomaniacal of myself to think that someone would actually like to read about me and my mundane life. Oh well. Your lose I guess because Im pretty friggin sweet.

I've decided to start a "real" blog for a couple reasons. One, I dont have anything better to do, Two, I get knee surgery tomorrow and I'll have alot of free time over the next like 6 months, and Three, its a good way to promote my up and coming buisness, my on-line yarn shop.

Oh and side note, the New York Giants just won the Superbowl as Im writting this (big deal?)

Now more about this said knee surgery. Right before Christmas on my new skiis on my second run down the hill I totally ate shit and twisted the shit out of my knee. It blew up, went to ER, they said its a sprain and no tearing of the ACL, but sports Medicine doctor says I tore my ACL and the Ortho surgen agrees. Damn. So now Im going in for a cadaver graft ACL repair. And by cadaver I mean a dead guy (or girl) ligament. Kinda creepy. But its better for me because now they dont have to cute me open somewhere else to graft some of my own ligaments which makes healing time faster.
But on the up and up, and parden my language (In my own blog!!) but this is going to fucking suck and its gonna hurt like a son of a bitch. Worse could happen though. I could of broken my neck like Boy (boyfriend) did last year (thats a story for another day), although his didnt require getting anything cut open. I need to just suck it up and quit being a little bitch about it.

I'll let you guys know how everything goes tomorrow....if Im lucid enough.
