Spring = Strawberry Pie

Spring break is over.  Why do vacation weeks go by sooo fast?  It was a good week, though.

Last weekend I got to go home.  Friday night when I got in, Miller and I went to my Granny's house and saw Granny, Papa and Jayda.  Jayda and Miller's relationship is definitely love-hate.  She loves him, he hates her.  So to get her to stop picking him up, I suggested she act like a cat.  The next two hours consisted of Jayda crawling behind Miller, everywhere he went, meowing and knocking things over.  My mom came over, we left Miller at Granny's, and went to eat at Fusion 5 - aka the old Shogun.  Linsey, her boyfriend, and her friend Hayley ate with us.  

Saturday I got to meet Hannah and Whitney at the mall, we had lunch and shopped, trying to find a good present for little Eden's first birthday.  We finally found a cute ride-along car (pink!!) at Toys'R'Us.  That afternoon we went to Eden's party up at the church.  It was so good to see everyone!  Eden was so cute!  That night my family and I went to Catfish Hole to eat for my dad's birthday.  Then we had strawberry pie at my Mema's house.  My mom makes the BEST strawberry pie.  The only sad part about the weekend was Kelly was already gone for her spring break trip to DISNEY WORLD - jealous much?  

This is a picture I sent Kelly, of Miller at home, to make HER jealous...

Monday and Tuesday I had to work, and the rest of the week was spent relaxing, wasting too much time, and doing some much needed homework!  Oh, and Sunday night I bought Twilight and watched it with Amy!  That was fun!  Now it's back to school and my internship for about 5 more weeks, then I'm done!!!  It's gonna be a long 5 weeks...

The Abscess

About a week ago, I discovered this little bump on my leg (thigh region). I assumed it was an ingrown hair, because, well... it looked like one! Throughout the week, it kept getting worse, bigger, more swollen, and hard all around it. I got scared. Was it infected, or worse, a spider bite? So yesterday morning, I went to the PrimeCare clinic here in Searcy. The doctor there took a look, felt it, and said "This is what we call an abscess." A wha-what?

According to

"An abscess is a localized collection of pus that generally develops in response to infection. An abscess is typically painful, and it appears as a swollen area that is warm to the touch. The skin surrounding an abscess typically appears pink or red. Inflammation surrounding hair follicles can lead to the formation of abscesses. Skin abscesses are often referred to as boils."

So I had a boil, essentially, infected with staph. She numbed it with a gigantic needle, sliced around it with a scalpel, and drained it. Not being dramatic, it was one of the most painful things I've ever experienced. She gave me 2 antibiotics and hydrocodone for the pain (yes it really is that bad). I had to go back in today to get the dressing on my wound changed, and I'll go back tomorrow, hopefully for the last time. Honestly, the changing the dressing was almost worse than the first visit where the abscess was actually removed.

So I'm in my bed, doped up on hydrocodone, watching Sex and the City and sleeping for hours on end. Just thought I'd update everyone on my latest adventure. If you wanna call it that.

Sonic BOOM please

Ok, so normally I don't like coffee. At all. But when you mix it with some Sonic soft serve and a shot of espresso, I'm a fan. It tastes like a milkshake AND it gives me energy. Hence, why I'm blogging about it instead of say, sleeping or tackling my HUGE mountain of homework.

I can't tell you how sick I am of school. I can't wait until the day when I come home from work and have the night or the weekend to do whatever I want. That freedom will taste so good.

Probably even better than a Java Chiller.
