Two big things, actually. First, we survived my first round of meds last night! I spent a good 20 minutes sitting wide-eyed in front of my computer watching how-to videos over and over. Finally, the hub took over and led me through it and BAM, we did it! I did the actual injections myself (into my stomach), but he helped walk me through the prep. It took about 35 minutes from the time I got all the stuff out, watched the videos, prepped the injections, and actually took them. It should go much more quickly tonight and by tomorrow I should have a nursing degree. SO glad to be past that first round! Phew!
Second... today's our 8 year wedding anniversary! I cannot believe it's been 8 whole years. And what a journey it's been! I can't imagine doing life with anyone other than my sweet hubby, so today is truly a day to celebrate. And don't you know we're doing it in style! First we'll come home a little early to go vote together. (Everyone get out and vote today!!!) Then we'll run back by the house to do my meds (fun with needles!). And then we're running out to get a Red Box movie and Chinese take-out. That probably sounds like an average Tuesday night to most (minus the needles), but I can't tell you the last time we got Chinese take-out... I'm seriously so excited! With our budget, the only times we ever eat out (which are few), it's either dirty Mexican or a hot dog at Costco. So yeah, this is pretty thrilling for us to say the least! Super excited...
Also, somewhere cruising around the Mediterranean are my parents, who are celebrating their 42nd anniversary today! A BIG congratulations to them! We love y'all and miss y'all! (And Bailey does too.) So it's a big happy day all around!
Round #2 of meds up tonight! I know I came across at least one person via twitter yesterday who was going to be starting all this fun later this week. Here are some great instructional videos for different medications for anyone who may need them! Just scroll down and find your specific med, then you can pull it up on You Tube. If you're like me, you need visuals!
Current mood: Excited!
