“Life is too important to take seriously.” – Corky Siegel

so the days since my last post have been so ridick.
let’s just talk about it for a second.

firstly, to update you on the guy fast. I totally did it until Saturday, and then I caved once because I had a burning question I had to ask my friend. but I did it for most of the week, and I’m pretty proud of myself. (although it didn’t really take away my frustration.. and I still ended up talking to a bunch of them because they contacted me.) but I give myself an A for effort.

secondly, I just found out today I have to have SURGERY on Wednesday! BAH! I’m pretty much super nervous about it. but it’s because of the same issue I blogged about last time.. that KSSD is getting the best of me, but he’s about to lose. LTM is backing me up, but he’s playing sidekick to Dr. Reynolds now, who’s a way better superhero than LTM in this kidney stones department.
 but I haven’t had surgery before besides for wisdom teeth, so this is freaking me out. I’m sitting here at work reading the details of my procedure that they gave me and getting more scared. but if it will end the problem AND make it so I don’t have to rip out my left kidney (even though it’s in the doghouse), then it will all be worth it. bring on the stirrups! (gross.)
and by the way, I have the best parents of all time. it’s a good thing we have mothers in moments like these.

thirdly, this weekend was pretty much awes.. but not in the ways I would have expected. I spent it all with my V.I.Peep, Cambria, which always brightens up my life. Friday we went to this St. Patty’s party down in Provo, and my favorite sister, Haley, came with us. the DJ was fabulous and getting our dance on was, of course, the best. but the party itself? kinda lame. the best part of the evening was when we were driving back home. we were in the carpool lane minding our own business in Cam’s Scion TC when all of a sudden we realize there is a car relentlessly driving next to us. the windows were tinted really dark so we couldn’t tell if it was on purpose or just one of those obnoxious people that drives next to you just because. so Cam speeds up, and they speed up, and we slow down, and they wait for us to catch up, etc. then they roll down their window and we see it’s two guys in this nice Infiniti trying to race! ha. and attempting to understand what they were saying through the window over the freeway noise was pretty much not happening, but basically they continued trying to egg us on and giving us the wobbling hand to say that we were doing mediocre to okay with the racing. then they changed lanes right in front of us over the double white lines and started going really slow, so we got out of the lane. and they tried talking to us a few more times and provoke more racing, but we eventually just let them blast off ahead of us going, I’m guessing, close to 100 or at least 95 around the curve.. when suddenly a Highway Patrol car CRUISES pass us on the right and zooms right up to the back of their car, and we watched with mouths open until the cop turned his lights on and pulled them over, and then all 3 of us busted up laughing. they potentially could have received 4 tickets, depending on what the cop saw, for speeding, racing, crossing a double white line, and illegally dark tint on their windows. ha! we are soo lucky it wasn’t us. oh snap.

and then on Saturday, Cam, Beau, and I all went down to SLC for Cam’s supposed photo shoot that she won, which didn’t end up happening, and then to Provo (yes, again in a 24 hour period. wtf? I never spend this much time there!) to get Beau a sweet phone deal at Best Buy. and we ended up hitting up this restaurant in Highland called Blue Lemon. you guys.. I think I’m in love with this place! it had such a fresh ambience and the food was all basically healthy and so delicious. I had the raspberry salad with a side of hummus. oh yes. and they get presentation points. look at my meal!

 so delicious. I highly recommend that you go there and try it. they just opened about 2 weeks ago, apparently.

fourthly, I had to speak TWICE in church yesterday, with two different high councilmen.. and kidney stones. ha. who does that? being a RM is sometimes not the coolest. it was quite the experience. but I was really blessed to be able to get through both talks without problems, and get done what I needed to do. all I can say is it’s good thing I love the Gospel!

 so now that you know more than you probably ever wanted to about my life.. that’s it. for today.

KSSD vs. LTM

I’d like to introduce you to…

THE KIDNEY STONE SNUGGIE DEVIL (KSSD)snuggie-kidney-devil

culprit of the hellish pain he has turned my life into for the past week.. using his minions — these guys:

kidney-stones-real

I know. so. disgusting.

and it isn’t just the past week.. he did this to me two months ago as well.
And he prevents me from eating. If I wanted to be anorexic AND bulimic then I would do it of my own free will!

lortab-man2Luckily Lortab Man (LTM) and I WILL track him down and choke him with that ridiculous orange monstrosity he is wearing on his body. (the Snuggie in and of itself freaks me out.) We’re so close to catching him with our uber technology.

You just watch yourself, KSSD!
You are GOING DOWWWWWWWWWN!
