Such an exhausting weekend. Ya' know how emotional issues can tire you out almost as much as physical labor? Ugh. It's been one of those weekends and it's even spilled into the week a bit. I'm not really wantin' to discuss what happened because there are parties involved that wouldn't appreciate spilling their business online. I will say this, though, business and friendship is a hard thing to mix. I know some people can do it but it needs to be all business from the beginning or all friendship. I don't think people should be able to mix and match when it suits their best interest. I do believe that people need to look out for themselves and stand up for what's right but at least keep your ethics.

K, I'm done with that.

This next month is super busy for me. I've got a lot of little get togethers, finishing up school, finals, and a major trip planned for the end of the month. I'm pretty pumped about the trip. The girl and I are going to Vegas to see Lion King with her parents. Yes, I'm meeting the parents for the first time. I'm a little nervous. We'll all drive back to Cali to meet the rest of the fam. I'm way excited about going see the San Diego temple! I've seen pictures and want to see it so bad. Hopefully I'll get a session in. We're gonna watch a baseball game too. Ginny's way into baseball and I'm excited to learn more about it. I'm learning and getting better. :-)

Anyway, this month will be fun. I'm very excited to get out of April and into May. Don't forget about Mother's Day!!!

So, I had a little interesting afternoon.

First off, let me preface by saying I work for a neurology clinic and we are required to wear scrubs. I dislike wearing scrubs because people automatically think you are medical personnel. I know more than the average person about the medical field, but mostly behind the scenes stuff, i.e. billing, insurance and other paperwork.

So, as I arrived home to my apartment complex, I get out of my vehicle and a lady from another apartment calls down to me, "I just had a seizure." Now, it is a coincidence that I've work with seizure patients and have seen fake seizures and real seizures and I know some signs of what to look for after a seizure occurs. I was on the phone when she called down, so I hung up and went upstairs. By the time I arrived, she was already laying on the ground and very confused. I asked if she would like me to call 911. I was going to anyway but just wanted her to know I was there. She really didn't say much but I got my phone and began to dial...9-9-1. Yes. Cliche, I know. I was a little frazzled and obviously not thinking straight. I dialed it incorrectly. It reminds me of a quote from Madea Goes to Jail, "My daughter tried that, I hit her so hard she dialed 9-19. " Ha, I luckily realized it before it even had a chance to ring (if it was going to ring). All in all, the ambulance came, the woman was taken away and appears to be fine. Ha. I'm the idiot.

No one mourns the wicked...GOOD NEWS!

I probably should be doing the 6 hours of homework ahead of me but I'm gonna post this while it's still fresh in my brain.

Last night, Ginny and I went to see Wicked in New Orleans! It was fantastic. I've seen a few musicals and I would have to say I enjoyed this one the most out of all of them. It may be because I'm more mature now and I appreciate the hard work these performers go through to put on a show like this. Regardless, it was amazing! Ugh, I'd go see it again right now. Our seats were great, the show was spectacular and the company I was with was awesome as well!

After we took the picture above, we were told by one of the ushers that we would have to delete all of the pictures I already took (3). She said there was a copyright issue. WTF? Really? Luckily, she was nice and didn't watch me delete them and told me it was only her job to tell me to delete them. There were some other choice witches that were not so kind to others.

After the show, we met up with a friend of mine, Erin, and went to Port of Call on Esplanade. It's kind of a dive bar but had a great hamburger!

On our way back, I thought I should go to the bathroom (such a shocker). We walked through the quarter for a bit and found this bar on the corner that was a last resort. I kinda joked about it being a gay bar when I first went in. I asked the bartender where the restroom was and he pointed down the hall. I went down there and the first door I came to said, "Steve". I thought, "is this someone's office?" I went to the door right next to it and it said, "Adam." It clicked. I chose door #2 and then we left. We laughed about it on the way back-so funny!!!

This weekend started off a little rocky, but it turned out to be pretty stellar (yes, if I say stellar, it will come back in style.)

My car has been misbehaving for quite some time. I've talked to it, changed it's poopy parts and even given it the best food I could find. But, it was still not cooperating. I was oh so ready to exchange the beast for a new one. I went to a few different car lots and found one or two that I thought I could afford. My parents were very determined to get me to just fix my current car as opposed to buying a new one. Fortunately, no one would finance me with an affordable not for a car that I wanted AND my dad and uncle are pros at fixing cars. Just as a side note, we've replaced the fuel pump (yeah, the one inside the gas tank) 3 X in the last year and it still was not working right. SO, I went to the Ford dealership to have them run a diagnostic test on the SOB. They did and gave me what was wrong with it. I brought the info to my dad and we determined that the parts that needed to be fixed were affordable and my parents helped me out with the finance part and my dad replaced one part and my uncle cleaned another part. It runs so much smoother now. Phew! I'm kinda excited I didn't have to buy a new car. I really like mine AND I'm almost done paying it off.

Ginny was able to meet my parents and a few other family members this weekend. My parents boiled some crawfish and we had a great time! We played cards Friday night and a little Saturday. I got to eat some delicious crawfish and enjoyed the whole time! I really can't wait until my parents move to Baton Rouge so I can see them more often! I also can't wait until Ginny moves to BR too-45 minute drive is a long time to drive to see each other.

All-in-all, my car's fixed, I spent all weekend with the girl AND I had crawfish. GREAT weekend!
