We havent updated this in a while
Wow, February 1st was the last time I had time to post a thought. City life is busy and unpredictable. Let me give ya some highlights and give ya a quick update.
Life has been fantastic, aside from the flu I had last week. I found a crappy student doctor at a hospital that I still have no idea where it is. Lets work backwards, shall we?
So today we saw Alice in Wonderland. We have become avid movie goers. We probably see one movie a weekend. It is something we love to do. May sound boring but from two true appreciator's of the arts, movies are a fantastic creative inspiration. Here in NYC we spend $25 for two movie tickets unless they are 3D then we spend $30. We want to start going to more theatre based things. We are looking to join or make a group/ club for it. We are in the the most creative city, we need to start taking advantage of it.
The flu was fun. Finding a hospital that would take someone without insurance was even more fun. So I realized I was really sick last Sunday night/ Monday morning. I decided that I needed to go to the hospital when I started to cough up blood as well as all the other gross stuff. I knew it was because I had been coughing so much but blood is never good. Plus I was welcoming the end of the world.
So I had to look up clinics because I don't have health insurance yet. The health insurance through work is so expensive, really at odds. So I found one that would MAYBE take me and I headed out. I left my apartment at 10:30am and came home at 6:30pm. The place was nearly 20 blocks from the subway station, the doctor may have been a student, and I paid almost $100.
The doctor originally said it was asthma. I said, Ive had that for years and I don't normally have low grade fevers and body aches. So she ASKED ME if I have ever had a sinus infection and if it felt like that!?!?!? Yeah, eventually she said it was the flu. This determination was only made after I said I hadn't had a flu shot. She gave me two prescriptions, one that doesn't work and one that wasn't strong enough. Both of these were for my asthma.
The flu has done a number on my asthma.
The most wonderful thing about being sick is that Jonah took AMAZING care of me. He made sure that I stayed hydrated, had a bedtime, called out two days to rest, I took all the meds that he went and got. Fed me, waited on me, loved me. So sweet. Thank GOD for Jonah. He has been amazing.
We had a lovely valentines day! He took me ring shopping in Manhattan. He got me Tiffanys! He was romantic and more than I could ever imagine. I got him John Mayer tickets. First time Ive enjoyed Valentine Day, ever.
John Mayer concert was very exciting. We had horrible tickets until one of John Mayers staff came around and asked Jonah some JM trivia and HE WON! He got moved down to fifth row!! Unbelievable! The show was super. I was so happy to see Jonah so happy.
Those were the big events really.
Other than that... Work has been stressful. My body has been working against me due to the stress. Not sure why I'm letting it get to me. I wish I were able to just let it be what it is. I need to start saving for the rest of schooling, makeup or psych. I'm ready for a career and I don't see the current place having enough faith in me to move me along the ladder. I'm so glad that that they gave me the chance to move and live in the city I love. I want to do what I love and theres nothing wrong with wanting that.
We have been talking weddings a lot more now. We thought it was gunna be a cruise wedding and now we might be having a Central Park wedding. I don't know. We'll see. LOTS OF TIME! Not even engaged yet. But its what we're looking forward to. We want our dream wedding. So its going to take some time.
Eddie and Beth plus babies are coming next month and we are VERY excited!! More details to follow.
Off to bed.
Lots of Love,
