The Pain is Unreal...

Ok, ok. I admit. I suck at blogging and should be banned from all connection to the blogosphere from now on. But I have an excuse: KIDNEY STONES! It was awful! This wasn't my first go round with the stones but it was my first attempt at passing them. One night I woke up with crazy-intense pain in my back. So bad I took someone else's pain medicine. I went to work the next day but felt better so I didn't think anything. That night was up all night in pain. So, I did what any normal person would have done after the first night and went to the doctor. It took me almost a week to pass the stone and it was completely unbearable. It was so bad that my husband bought me Bride Wars, Dirty Dancing - The Anniversary Edition, The Notebook and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.

So, I finally passed the pesky stone only to find out that I had a kidney infection. I have literally been in pain for 3 weeks. So, I'm back to the doctor tomorrow (seriously, I think I've been to the doctor more in the last three weeks than in the last year).

However, with all that said, I am back -- or attempting to be. I finally landed a full time job! I'm so excited! I'll be a feature writer at the local paper. Though I would love to stay at the magazine, it's definitely a step up!

And I know I need to do my drawing still...I'm on it! So sorry about the delay. Trust me, I didn't plan for the stones!

Oh no!! What is going on with the world! I didn't even know you could have a kidney infection until two months ago when my sister was in the hospital for one. She has to be on a low dose of antibiotics until September!! I hope you're feeling better! eek!
