Not off to a great start this month, last week I had to go to the doctor and get some medicine and this week I had to go back and get more medicine.  I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I was in a lot of pain and discomfort. I went to the doctor and they didn’t see much but they gave me medicine for a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), well a week went by and I was feeling worse so I tried to go back this past Tuesday but my physician couldn’t see me till next week and there was no one else so I had to go to a walk in clinic which is where the $259 comes in.  My infection had gotten worse because I’m one of the lucky few who are immune to the medication. Yay (sarcasm) Well it also had spread to my kidneys so that’s fun. They gave me some tests and some more meds and I’m feeling a bit better. Not 100% but definitely better. Urgh sickness.

You realize how desperate you get once you’ve been in pain for two weeks or more. Man, I was willing to do anything. I ate raw garlic, took cold showers, drank weird teas, made some strange juices with my juicer. My mom is super into natural remedies so she was telling me to do all these things. They definitely helped. Garlic is like magical and my mom always gave it to us for everything – colds, fevers, bug bites, you name it. I’m sure the medicine helped as well but I was on it for 3 days and not much improvement, then I ate two cloves of garlic and voila, I saw a lot of improvement. So if you ever feel anything coming or if you’re already sick, try some raw garlic. It’s good if you cook it with your food as well but for best results just munch on some raw garlic and you’ll be feeling better in no time.

20130816_08301420130816_083037We also made a couple of additions to our guest bed/home office. We really needed a desk chair, we’ve been using one of our dining room chairs so I decided to get one. We got Mr. CrazyRichLife’s books in the mail yesterday (he’s doing some online classes) and with them we got a coupon for Office Depot – $10 off. Well I decided to go and get us a chair. I also wanted some sort of side table/shelf we could use to put supplies on as well as our printer so that we could leave the desk empty for work and school. So I get there and choose a chair and it’s the only one left so they let me take the one that’s on the floor. It was originally $79.99, and it was on sale for $59.99, but they gave it to us for $49.99 since it was the floor model so YAY. and the book shelf was only $39.99. So that’s $90 and with the $10 off we’re down to $80 plus tax.

Bowling Alley

Our fun bowling date!

On Saturday we took a nap (something we never do) and so we were bored Saturday night. Normally we keep ourselves busy all day and we’re ready to get to bed around 10PM on weekends. Well due to our nap, we were not ready for be and decided to go out instead. We headed over to the bowling alley and lucky for us, they were having all you can bowl from 10PM till close – 2AM – for just $10 per person. That included shoes and an open lane. We had a lot of fun, it was nice to get out of the house and enjoy ourselves a bit since I’ve been feeling so crummy.

How was your week? Hopefully better than mine.
