I have seen peace.
I have seen pain,
Resting on the shoulders of your name.
Do you see the truth through all their lies?
Do you see the world through troubled eyes?
And if you want to talk about it anymore,
Lie here on the floor and cry on my shoulder,
I'm a friend.I have seen birth. I have seen death.
Lived to see a lover's final breath.
Do you see my guilt? Should I feel fright?
Is the fire of hesitation burning bright?
And if you want to talk about it once again,
On you I depend.
I'll cry on your shoulder.
You're a friend.
You and I have lived through many things.
I'll hold on to your heart.
I wouldn't cry for anything,But don't go tearing your life apart.
I have seen fear. I have seen faith.
Seen the look of anger on your face.
And if you want to talk about what will be,
Come and sit with me,
and cry on my shoulder,
I'm a friend.
And if you want to talk about it anymore,
Lie here on the floor and cry on my shoulder,
I'm a friend.

So , about 40 minutes into movie I got a phone call from my doctor ( it was 8.45 pm) about my labs. Luckily I do not carry arthiritus gene but he told me to come back to office sometimes next week to run more tests to find the reason of my pains.
Today new kind of pain appeared. I but on my favorite pair of boots with midium size heals. At first everything was fine, but when I was walking from my car to movie theater both of my feet started hurting to the point I was in tears. Month ago I did not have that pain. Seems like my bones have started drifting to some different direction. :(
Ugh, I want nick to come back and find a good job in US. ( at least 150 000 dollars per year lol) and good health insurance ...
Ok. I have to give Regina meds now. She is still coughing ( she started in January) and nothing makes her cough go away. she also has Laryngitis .
So far these are all of my symptoms.
Fluid filled systs ( ganglion cysts)
problems with memory
Balance or Coordination Problems
Abnormal Numbness or Pain
Nick comes home next week. Wohoo. At least I get few "easyer day", because I NEED THEm. I am so burned out.

Few days ago my eyes started hurting and looked puffy. People asked if I was crying or tyred or sick, because my face looked horrible. :( So I went to see doctor for that. And guess what, I have conjunctivitis (pink eye). I got eyedrops for that and I feel much better now. :) I also asked from my doctor why my pains ( bone, joints) are getting worse, not better. He drew some blood to test for artiritus( sp), if tests come back fine, then they will let me know whats the next step will be. Until then I just have to take Celebrex, and since my insurance does not cover it , I have to pay in full ( 107 dollars- monthly dose- I think). Anyway, I am just getting tired of being in pain. I am used to pain, but I have to give up a lot because of pain. There are things I want to do but I can not . I want to get down on floor and play with kids, but it is really hard for me to get down on all four, and play pony rides with them, I want to carry them around them sitting on my sholders- I can't. I am 27 going on 70. :( I want my health back. I want my life back.

What comes next from OC. ?? There is Laguna Beach on MTV, OC, Real life Housewives, and somthing else. Only thing that is missing is - How low income people manage to survive in OC. Orange county is not only Newport Beach, Coto De Caza, or Laguna Beach. There are plenty of lover income citys here. HEre are lot of homeless people ( men, woman, kids) who have no jobs or food to eat before bedtime. But show about them will not get any good ratings , right. SO why spend some Good money on people who have no money??? Life. I do not get it.
I think that Melania is very very very smart woman- and of course he loves Donald and is greatly attracted to him- I blame it on Money..... ( sorry Melania and Donald, I am just being brutally honest.....)

What is wrong with everybody?? Fundriser here , fundriser there... Reginas school has Jog-a- thons, Gabriels school has See's candy fundriser, then couple of other families asked money.... do I look like a millioner to you guys. I shop at walmart and Kohls on sales rack... so there you go... nobody will get any money from me.... I am poor.... I spend all my extra money for photography and shutterfly.... and pictureframes. I need more pictureframes..... I do not have enough pictureframes....
I am just little bitter today because everything just pisses me off. People are loosing weight eating meat. People are loosing weight eating bread.,.. And there is me, who eats bread and chicken and I gain weight. ??? I have been monitoring my diet past few weeks. I wrote down how much I ate, what time I ate. Every time my daily intake exceded more than 1400-1500 cal , I gained weight. Every time I had pork, I gained weight. On each day I had 10 containers of yoplay fat free yogurt- I lost weight, On those days I had one head of cabbage I lost weight.... I am so sick of healthy food. Seriosly, I want to eat chicken without worring about feeling sick. I want to eat cheese and not get upset stomach. I want to live happily ever after without worring about money, health problems, cancer, and what other people think. I want world peace.

I hate it. I do not mind rain, but this cold is just too much to handle.
I just want to complain more about my problems. Well, lets talk about physical pain I am in.
About 4 years ago my wrists started hurting - they still do. 2 years ago my knees just decided they are sick of being strong and healty knees, and now I got pain there. Year ago, after I had my car accident , my sholders started hurting and now - LATEST- my big toe ( righ one), well, bunion really ia swollen and hurts really , really really.
Everything was fine when I woke up, but around noon things slowly started to change. At first my toe turned numb ( really weird feeling), and then pain set in. and right now (8.48 PM), I am unable to move my toes at all, pain is horrible. I really do not know what is going on. I wish I knew. I hope pain will dissapear for tomorrow, because if it is still there, I do not know how I can drive my kids to school. :(:(:(

. Everything makes me extremely tired. Some days I hit the bed around 9 am and fall asleep even before kids are asleep, but I am sure, now that he is gone, I will be up until 2-3 am doing nothing. As right now, I am so tired I am about to fall over BUT I can not fall asleep.
Now it is me and kids again. To make things worse- Regina is SICK AGAIN. I have no idea what is going on with this girl. She is coughing and coughing and coughing. She stops for a week and goes again. I think I will take her to see some specialist because she has been coughing since january and nothing seems to be working. :( Well, at least I have my fun neighbor friend who kees me entertained day and night- there is never dull moment when she is around. ;)

Now about my laptop- while I was in estonia I brought kids computer game Nu pogodi( Just wait_ kids animated series). After I downloaded the game my computer started acting up. And 3 days ago it stopped responding to anything at all. i did virus scans and found porn dialer( whatever is that), I checked memory and my computer had no memory left- also, my computer could not find any hadware left in my computer- no ups drives, no cd/dvd drives etc. I had about 5 picture folders( total 200 pictues that I had not backed up) and I lost them all. yesterday my husband restored my computer to factory settings and now it is working again, but what is weird ( at least I think is weird), after first virus scan( even before computer was hooked up to internet) norton found Alexa (

WHY, WHY, WHY??? But at least now my Toshiba is working fine and after few more virus scans and virus removals, My computer seems to be clean -- we will see about that.
I hope for next 12 months my computer stays fine and clean ( I usually get one bad virus or spyware or addware once a year that totally destroys everything I have in my computer and even virus or spy scans can not detect what my toshiba got. I never learn from my mistakes - instead I make new and worse ones ;O)
