is that a word? sinusy? I doubt it, but I'm too hopped up on hydocodone to care. :-)

i have a sinus infection. this is day five and i finally went to the doc today after getting dizzy while driving a work vehicle this morning. work sent me home and so off i went to doc. no strep..yay! but crappy sinus infection

i finally got my voice back today too... oh..got a question? where does snot come from? I know ... weird question, right? but really...i blow my nose and two seconds later, it is full again... i really don't understand it... but it is really gross..

okay..now that i've grossed everyone out...i'm going to go... i think the hydrocodone is kicking in and i will be out soon...

i hope to get back to regular posting soon...

Photo Hunt #8 - Nautical

I couldn't decide which photo to post for this so I'm posting two of my favorites from my my Valentines week trip to Cancun in 2007.

This on is a causeway between the lagoon and the ocean. The big boats on the left are Galeon I (barco verde) and Bucanero II (barco rojo). They are party boats that cruise around the Cancun shoreline at night. We didn't go out on those, but took a different boat from the same dock to spend a day at Isla Mujeres.

This photo is from the boat to Isla Mujeres as we are leaving Cancun. I love the blues of the waters in this photo.

My dad and stepmum come home today from their yearly week in Cancun. I couldn't afford to go this year with all the other things going on. But, I've promised myself that I will go next year. I went two years in a row and now it has been two years since the last trip. I miss Cancun, the food...the people...the culture. Sigh...

It's over...

I heard from the mortgage company today. In fact, they processed my pre-qualify within an hour. The good news...I qualify for an 80% loan. The bad news...I won't be able to come up with the 20% needed for down payment and closing costs. I haven't spoken with my mum yet, but I know the amount needed is much more than she is willing to contribute. If I had qualified for 90%, we could have made it work.

I'm numb. I feel like this was my last hope for happiness and now it's gone. All of my dreams are gone and I don't know what to do now. I want to crawl into a hole and never come out. I have no idea how to function. Just trying to breath right now is killing me.
