Well, they're out

I had my tonsils taken out yesterday, and so far the pain isn't as bad as when I actually had tonsillitis. Now THAT was horrible. 104 temp for multiple days and one night to get some relief I actually went outside and laid in the cold wet grass. the next day I was admitted to the hospital for 3 days. They couldn't get an IV in and almost had to call the pediatrics nurse my veins were so small. Anyway, the surgery yesterday was nerve wracking, but once I started to get drugs  through the IV (that was in on the first try!!!), all I remember is the ceiling moving, having a really colorful dream, and waking up. Crazy stuff! I was really woozy and tired. I asked to see them and when they showed me the tonsils my vision was blurry so when it cleared up I asked to see them again. My mom or boyfriend will be going back today, hopefully, to get them for me! Yuck? More like AWESOME. I'm excited. I even made the lid on the jar they're going in cute. Here's a picture.

I took a baby food jar, because the tonsils are so small, and mod podged cute ice cream fabric and a pink ribbon to the lid. I did this last night and had to lay down afterward because my stomach started feeling nasty. Ill post more picture of the jar, with a better camera, once the tonsils are actually in it!

College Online >:(

If I can help it I don't EVER want to take an online college course again! Ugh! I'm in the last few days of this class, but my teacher has some wacky things going on... Today when I logged on there was a "Fake Final" that appeared out of nowhere, but when I went to take it, it said that the test closed YESTERDAY! WHAT?!??!?? It totally wasn't there yesterday... ANNNDDD the Real "Final" is open today instead of the 7th like the site has been telling me for the past week! GRRRR! Ugh, I'm so confused. I emailed the instructor, but usually she doesn't respond in a timely manner (Frustrating!). I'm pretty sure that I'll be able to take the final on the 7th, considering everything else says the 7th. As for the "Fake Final" I have no idea. I'm hoping that she'll re-open the "Fake Final" and I be able to take that too.

PJ Pants Sewing Class

So Yesterday, I had my second sewing class, and the object of the class was to make Pajama Pants. The fabric shop where is was held is only a few months old, and everytime I've been in there I've drooled over this fabric trying to think of something to use it for.
Sorry for the horrible picture quality. Im using my cell phone for now. Hoping to get my hands on something better to use soon... But anyway, Im not usually a "pink" type, but I just couldn't resist this one! I got into sewing in Jan of this year when I (think) I posted on FB about wanting a sewing machine for some reason, and guess what??? My grandpa (who also gave me my firebird, but that'll be for another post) just happened to have one that he didnt use anymore! Actually, he used it once, then put it in storage for 10 years... I love it! The first thing I made was a stuffed platypus. Yes, a platypus. And now I'm making all kinds of things! Back to the pants. The class was from 1-5 and I was completely done by 4:30 with my brand new PJs! Here a picture of the finished product.
Once again, sorry for the quality, but you get the idea! I added a little blue bow to the waistline on the front so that you could tell the difference between the front and back, otherwise you'd have no idea. The pattern was nice and simple and easy to do! I can't wait for my new class!

Hmmm... Blog Post # 1

So, Im not so sure what the first post on my brand new blog should be about... Maybe it should be about the PJ pants I made in my sewing class yesterday, or how Im getting my tonsils out on the 14th. Maybe. Or maybe it should be about my new baby bearded dragon with no tail. His name is Pascal. Or maybe Im supposed to introduce myself and explain what this blog's future may hold and what's to come. I dont know. Honestly, this blog probably isn't going to have any one particular theme except for the events of my life that I feel like sharing. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

By the way, this is baby Pascal. Ain't he cute?
