So after I wrote last night I went back to bed and didn't get up until it was time for me to go to work today and I can't believe how much better I feel today! I am home on my supper break now eating some oatmeal before heading back for the rest of the night. Thanks for all the concerned comments! I think whatever it was is pretty much past for now, luckily! Maybe that means I will actually be able to get some things done this weekend! We'll see...

It always gets worse before it gets better...

So I talked yesterday about having a headache; though I think that is really a bit of a mild term for something as painful as that was..Anyway, it is thankfully gone today, but the nausea stayed. Of course I had to go to work (no fever or anything) so I just sipped Sprite all day and left as soon as I could which turned out to be three hours early. Got into bed at 8:15 and just crashed there for quite a while before I apparently dozed off a bit then the alarm went off at 10pm so my hubby could get up from his nap and go to work. After that I couldn't go back to sleep so I got up and ate a little something and I seem to be better now. At least whatever it was I feel better now! :)
Mallory (aka rosebud101) posted a comment yesterday asking if I was a nurse and suggesting I see a doctor...probably would have been a good idea, but I think because I am a nurse I put off going much longer than I should most of the time. The last time I went for an "illness" I had a headache for 8 days straight before I finally broke down and went because I thought "There really isn't anything they can do for a headache that I can't do at home"....turned out to be a sinus infection so if I wasn't being so hard headed I wouldn't have had to suffer as long! So, if I have any other symptoms tomorrow, I will take your advise Mallory and see a doctor. :)

Bad, then good, then bad.

Today was a very strange day for me. I had to go in to work earl today for a class given by a person with less education than me about a subject I already know, and needless to say I wasn't exactly thrilled about it. While there I learned that they have hired another nurse for the position that I was trying to transfer to which means that they didn't go through the proper procedure to do it (if they did, I would have had another "interview") so I was less than pleased with that too, even though I knew what was going on to some degree. Later in the day, my boss called me in to her office, which is usually not a good sign, but this time she wanted to tell me that she thinks I'm doing good. That is BIG for her to say something like that, and especially to take time out of her day to call me up there and tell me. I have had a lot of problems since I started back to this job (about six months ago), but lately things seem to be going a bit better, so I am hopeful that things will work out.
As the night wore on though, I started not feeling well and I still have a really bad headache. I would call it a migraine, but I think it is more like a really bad sinus headache. If it isn't better tomorrow, I will have to break down and go to the doctor. :( So, that pretty much sums up my day, bad, then good, then bad again!

I have been having problems with my computer for weeks now and I finally figured out what was causing it was a piece of malware known as xp antivirus. It is an extremely smart little bugger! For me, it kept popping up saying that my computer was infected with loads of spyware to start with. I found the program and deleted it...I thought. Then I kept having problems with my home page changing and when I would search for something online, it would come up like it normally does, but when I clicked the website I wanted to see, I got redirected to something totally unrelated! That was all annoying enough, but then it shut down my computer without warning and I could only get it to start back up in safe mode! I did some research and found that a simple "uninstall" will not get rid of this and everything I was reading recommended different pieces of information. I tried several methods of manual removal and still had problems. Then I found a site that recommended MalwareBytes' malware removal tool, but I couldn't get to the website to download it because the xp antivirus is way to smart! So I finally found I was able to download the program from there and it seemingly removed the rest of the program but my computer still wasn't working right! So I downloaded ccleaner also from and ran it. It also caught lots of trojans and things and fixed several registry errors and my computer was running faster, but still only in safe mode. I was beginning to think I was going to have to take my computer to someone who knew what they were doing when I came across Computer and stumbled on to this post which suggested downloading yet another program called SDFix which you can download here. I followed the instructions and finally my computer is fixed! I am so glad that I didn't have to take it somewhere and pay loads of money to get it done! Best of all, all of the things I needed to download were free!
Now I can finally get back to listing some beads! :)
