I need to update more often.

I don't know why I've stopped writing. I stopped writing on my livejournal too. I've been sick the past few days. My throat was sore on Tuesday but I ignored it and didn't buy any cold eeze which has been MY JAM the last few years (more than a few, over 6 I'd say) and I think it has helped me not get sick. I used to get a cold once or twice (or more when I was in school) a year and from about 15 years old to 27 I would stay sick longer than a normal person would. I would usually have to go to a doctor once a year at least for medicine. Antibiotics, cough medicine and once I got an inhaler. One time they took X-rays of my lungs and one lung was completely full of infection and the other lung was like 2/3 full of infection. The doctor wanted to put me in the hospital! I didn't have insurance though so he said since I didn't and since I was young (like 22?) he would give me antibiotics and cough medicine and then if I didn't clear up within a certain time frame, he would put me in the hospital. Luckily the medicine helped quickly. I was coughing so hard I had bruised my ribs and throwing up, but there wasn't usually anything to throw up so I would just dry heave. 

No idea why I'm telling sick stories. But I've got more! 

I was about 15? I got REALLY sick and I went to school, don't know why but I remember being in my 10th grade history or social studies class, whatever it was, world history maybe? His name was Mr. Drummond (I could see him marrying a student later on in life. Like I was 15 and he was 33? So if he had been teaching for a while he would have students older than 18 and closer to his age. I could see it. ANYWAYS!!!! I was so tired in his class that I fell asleep in his entire class one day and he didn't care. I left and somehow got home. I don't think my coughing was that bad but there clearly were white marks in my throat so I got home from school and crawled everywhere. I called my mom (who did have insurance on me so she said she was taking me to hospital.) So I remember I was laying at the front door throwing up and my mom got me and took me to JFK hospital. I had pneumonia that time. 

Lots of stories like that. Then while J and I were new, less than a year I got sick. I had to get antibiotics and couch medicine. I think that's the last time I got that sick. 

Now when J is sick or someone at work that likes to get touchy touchy feeling, I buy cold eeze. There's a girl I used to work with who whenever she was sick she wanted hugs and she wanted your hand on her forehead to see if she has a fever. She'll come up and lay her head on your shoulder. Basically she goes around and touches everyone when she's sick and I'm just like stay away from me! 

More interesting personal tidbits? 

My position at work changed so I make more money. It's the designated hitter program at work, I can get two raises out of it. First is the training period timeframe. Then when you do your 160 hours and take the classes, you'll take a test (100 ??s I think) and if you get a 80% I think you pass? I have to do all this to get certified in pharmacy. After I get certified I'll make another dollar an hour!

We want to buy a house. But I don't want to go into many details because I don't know want to jink ourselves. J has to pay off 5 credit cards so we did two and then on Thursday we'll do another card. I'm cashing out a retirement loan, that'll take a few weeks to get here and then we'll pay what we can for the rest of the cards. After that's done, we can start shopping.

We should probably be in a house before 2017 but we're hoping for something sooner. 

When this happens, it's going to be one of my biggest dreams happening.
