Tasha brought me chicken. It was yummy.

Dad is out of the hospital. Sounds like he is making a speedy recovery. Good to hear. He had us all scared there for a while.
Making plans with Robert to go to whatever hockey games we can get tickets to and the baseball games this summer. He’s super excited and to be honest, so am I. I love it when we get to go do stuff together. We always have such a good time.
Talked to Dad today. He sounded good, but tired. They aren’t letting him go home until Wed. or Thurs. but at least they are talking about letting him go home. A few days ago they were talking about putting him in a nursing home until he recovered, so he must be doing better than they expected. He is anxious to go home, so I’m sure he was happy to hear they are getting ready to send him there. Hoping he continues to improve.
Found a cute sweater to wear to work.
Broke $10,000 in nap at work yesterday. Actually 3 of us did. We were pretty excited.
He told Nadia he loved her. It was sweet. I worry about her getting too attached to him because I don’t know where our relationship is going, but at the same time, I love that he cares about her like he does.
Had a blast with Robert and Nadia at the hockey game. He said he loved it and that we should go again sometime. While we were there we saw that there is going to be a rodeo there in April. We are making plans to go see that.
Getting a bonus on my next check. If I keep up the good work, I may be getting one every month.
We went to the Lego Movie for Valentine’s Day. It was cute and we had a great time. Spent most of the night talking about anything and everything. I love it when he tells me I’m beautiful or sexy.
Found out today that I might be getting a $2/hr raise. Not holding my breath, because it is completely up to the people in Philadelphia, but if it happens I will be very happy. I think we’ve earned it. We have worked hard and brought sales up a lot. And really, considering the amount of money we bring in, we don’t get paid enough. Most insurance companies pay 50% on whole life policies. If they paid us straight commission, some of us would be making several times what we are making now.
Got a good quality score at work today. Been a while. Had a temporary supervisor while my supervisor was on maternity leave. She didn’t give anyone a good score the whole time. Don’t get me wrong. My supervisor isn’t really lenient. Actually she’s pretty tough on us. But she knows that there are customers that aren’t going to want to talk to us and we can’t help that. She doesn’t count against us for something that is out of our control. It’s just nice to be told I’m doing a good job after 2 months of being told nothing we did was good enough.
By now, it’s apparent that the surgery on my back did not improve anything. I still have one more appointment and they mentioned doing a nerve trace at that time. In the meantime, I went to see another doctor about a lump I had and as it turns out I had a cyst the size of a golf ball, which he removed two days after my initial appointment. Immediately after its removal, I noticed some improvement with some of my symptoms, which I did not expect. I’m fairly certain there was more than one cyst and that I will have to have more removed , so I did some checking into it and found an interesting article on what is called Tarlov cysts. Interesting because every single symptom describes what I have going on with me. Every one, to the letter. So when I go back in for my follow up appointment I am going to go over it with my doctor and have him look into it. I don’t know how much he can help since it has been going on this long already, but it’s worth a shot. If there is an answer, I need to find it. I can’t just give up.
I think we may have finally found out what is wrong with me. They will have to do some tests and if that’s what’s wrong it will require more surgeries. Fingers crossed that we’ve finally found an answer.
Strange Valentine plans, but Robert and I are taking Nadia to see The Lego Movie this weekend. She’s been wanting to see it since they started advertising it, and he mentioned that he wanted to see it as well, so we’re gonna take her to see it. I think it will be fun.
The cake I made for my team turned out beautifully and they said it tasted great!!
Survived my surgery.
I have surgery on Friday. I know it seems like an odd thing to be happy about, but let me explain. I’ve been experiencing a lot of health issues over the last year. I’ve seen 9 different doctors and they keep guessing at what’s wrong with me, and none of them have come up with anything solid yet. I decided to take things into my own hands. While it may not be the cause of all my problems, I knew I had some kind of growth going on. I told my primary care doctor about it and she referred me to someone to have it checked out. That doctor told me there was nothing wrong with me and I was imagining it.
So earlier this week I contacted a doctor I had when I first moved here. He saw me today and told me that yes, in fact, there was something there. I have a cyst the size of a golf ball, and it could be causing some of my issues. So he is removing it this Friday. I don’t know if it will help any of the other issues I have going on, but it’s one less thing I have to worry about. I never believed the other doctor. I know my own body, and I knew something was wrong.
Robert and I are going to take the kids to the hockey game later this month. Got the tickets today. I’m excited. I think the last time I went to a game was right before Mom died which will be 3 years next month. Time to start doing those things again.
Decided to do some painting today and was really happy with it when I was done. Trying to decide if I should keep it or post it on Etsy.
