Random Saturday | iPhoneography

Wow how things can change in an instant. My intention was to have replied to all of you who took the time to comment on my post by now, but something very unexpected happened on Wednesday night. (I promise I am still going to reply and do some blog visiting! I am very excited about that!)

It was a normal day and started off like usual. I have my girls during the days, their father and I have joint custody at the moment and tonight was my night with them. There is a small carnival in town and I planned on taking my girls there to ride the rides and eat cotton candy. It was all my eldest daughter “Sass” could talk about, bless her heart she was so excited. So we go, even though the rain threatened to change our plans, and we had an awesome time.

Both of my girls went on several rides and ate cotton candy and stayed up past their bed times. I knew all that cotton candy was swimming around in their little bellies and they needed some food, so I chose Olive Garden. Both of them just love pasta. And this is when the whole night took a shift for the worst. This is going to sound funny, but I assure you, this was probably some of the worst pains I have EVER experienced, and I have had two children. I put it up there with that.

My girls were all wound up, and I was trying to get one to sit and eat because she was jumping around and the other I was trying to get out of the blinds and sit in her chair, in the middle of this, I took a bite of my salad and the lettuce suctioned up against my esophagus and sent it into crazy spasms. At this point, I had no idea what happened, all I knew I had just aspirated food into my lungs…and here I am with my kids in some of the most severe pain I’ve ever experienced. I sat for a minute to see if it would pass, but it didn’t and next thing I knew I had the whole staff of Olive Garden surrounding me trying to figure out what was wrong. Both of my kids in tears, scared to death. Finally, I have no idea what is going on, it was getting worse so they call 911.

Long story short, I go to the ER where I received the worst care ever, pumped full of morphine and dilaudid along with some muscle relaxers and left in the same condition I went in there. It was just all around a crazy night…..but it does make you think, you just never know how your day will end up. Luckily what happened to me wasn’t life threatening and I am ok now. But your life can be taken from you in an instant….This definitely makes me remember to live everyday like it is your last.

So anyway, the last couple days I have felt like the floor of a taxi cab and I haven’t been online. This is the post I was meaning to have up last Thursday.

I call it Random Saturday (which will go back to being Thursdays next week), which is just a collection of random pics I took with my iPhone and edited with Instagram. 🙂 So with at that, here they are!

This is one of my “things”. I always drink from two straws.

Dislike colder weather, but I love my boots!

My budding photographer. 🙂

She asked me for ice cream and I informed her it was too cold out. So she goes and puts on a turtle neck and a scarf and tells me she is now all dressed for ice cream. How do you say no to that?

Since the bumper seems intact and the sticker is a bit faded, looks as if no one took this person up on their offer…

Image

Seriously, probably the best. pie. EVER!

Even in the hospital I have to take pics…

Oh Siri, you funny B**ch | iPhone

I had mentioned in my previous post that I recently upgraded to the iPhone 4s. I know right? Took me long enough. Honestly? I sat on my old phone for a while because I was terrified of the back up malfunctioning somehow resulting in me losing out on everything. I have so many things in my notes/calendars and so forth, important dates and things I could not replace that I was so scared it was all going to be lost. Now I know that seems totally irrational….but seriously, my luck with technology is not good. I now have 2 back ups of my backups (all my pics)….it is that serious.

Not to mention I rarely like spending ungawdly amounts of time standing in line at Best Buy, so I basically avoid it like the plague. But the new phone has been calling me. Especially since my 3G phone has been threatening to brick on me any moment and I have often had to revive it when it would go into the endless recovery loop mode or the random shut off with the charging symbol mode no matter how long it has been plugged in to charge crap mode…. I luckily though through countless hours searching forums and youtube videos, found two awesome fixes for my usual iPhone situations. Untech savvy girl problems! So really, an upgraded was needed. I had the other for 2 years! That is like an eternity in tech years.

So the other day I brought home my 4s, and lovely Siri and I have been in love since. I also realized she is going to make a great pocket companion. She is like my new virtual best friend who does what I say when I say it and rarely back talks. I like her. 🙂

And yes…..she calls me Ninja Spice…….I am cool like that.

Image

Even by her pleading the fifth, by her not capitalizing “canon” made me know she is also a Nikon fan. She just didn’t want to ruffle any feathers….such a peace keeper.

Image

and other randomness…

Yes, Siri and I will be the best of friends….
