I don’t get twitter, I don’t get what is it really all about and why it is something that would be cool to join. It seems like everyone is talking about it these days, but I just don’t get it! So, who out there twitters, and if you do tell me your thoughts, is it fun? Do you like it? It is worth the time? Give me your feedback!

I LOOOOVE Valentine's Day! I know some people think it's not a REAL holiday, but I love it! I love the candy, flowers, special dinners with the one you love, and most of all those cute little conservation hearts! I could eat them all year long! I bought some from the grocery store a few weeks back and Scott and I had a fun time picking through them and laughing at the sayings. I hope you love valentine's day as much as I do. I love just having a whole day to tell those in your life how much to love them, even though you should do that every day (which I do) but it is still fun to have a whole day where everyone celebrates it!!
So, tell me are you a fan of Valentine's Day, and if so what do you LOVE?

I had an interesting Friday last week….actually interesting doesn’t even begin to describe it!! The day started off normal, much like any other day, but it took an odd turn around 1:30 in the afternoon. I was sitting at my desk, and I started to not feel so well, something really upset my stomach and I was feeling just awful! It came on very quickly and I felt like all I wanted to do was go home and lay in my bed. I decided after about 5-10 minutes of this feeling that I needed to speak to my boss and let her know that I wasn’t feeling so good and wanted to go home. As I was walking to her desk, I started to feel really dizzy and light-headed. I finally got to my her desk and as I was leaning up on her desk cubicle, I was able to muster out the words “Hey, I am not feeling so good…” which was immediately followed by me passing out on the floor, yes PASSING OUT ON THE FLOOR!!
I remember as I was talking to her thinking, why are my eyes closed? And then I woke up to about 4 people above me, asking me if I am ok and if I am in pain. It was the oddest feeling I have ever felt in my life! As I opened my eyes I thought that everything was just a dream, but soon as I came to, I realized that I indeed was at work lying on the floor!! My managers had me move into the conference room so they could have me rest. I was totally conscious and not in any pain, but they called the paramedics to make sure that everything checked out okay, in case I needed to go to the hospital. At this time, Scott was just about to start work and I called him in a panic to tell him what was going on and that he needed to get to my work ASAP because they might be taking me to the hospital. He wasn’t sure if he was going to be able to come, because he can’t just leave work without getting penalized for it. Fortunately he was able to come! The paramedics came and there was like 10 guys there to tend to me, needless to say it was OVERWHELMING!!! They fired question after question at me, checked my vitals, and got the story from my managers about what had happened. All my vitals checked out ok, and they gave me the option to go in the ambulance to the hospital, but since everything was ok, I didn’t go and instead made an appointment to see the doctor that afternoon.
Finally Scott came to my work to pick me up, and we went to the doctors. Again, the doctor checked me out and everything looked good, minus a little bit of temp. that I had (which was most likely a result from all commotion). The paramedics thought I could be pregnant, which the doctor didn’t think was likely due to timing of the situation, but to be precautionary she ordered some blood work and a test to see if we had a little tyke on board. Everything came back ok, and NO we are not having a baby, which we were both relieved about, not that we don’t want to have kids, but right now it’s not in our plans, and we would rather have it be more on our timing. What the doctor think happened (in laymen’s terms) is similar to when someone sees the sight of blood and faints, there is a nerve that triggers to your brain when you have a severe on set on nausea, and then you pass out! Simple as that.
Anyways, the point of this blog wasn’t just to share this story, but to share what I learned by the whole experience happening to me.
So here goes my list:
-God is such a faithful God, He is always watching over me even when I don’t know what that I need it (I always knew that, but it’s a good reminder)
-In stressful situations, Scott is my calm; he comforts me by just being by my side. When I called him on the phone to tell him what was going on, and he said he didn’t know if he would be able to come get me, I started crying. I knew that I needed him to be there to hold my hand, or be by my side, I just needed his presence around me.
-I have an AMAZING husband! He was running around trying to get a supervisor at work and even though he could have gotten in “trouble” he left work to come be with me.
-Whenever Scott & I have kids we will REALLY be ready because had the time been now, we would have been ready.
-God is always in control no matter what is going on, He was taking care of both Scott & I, bringing us health, safety, peace, joy, or whatever we needed Him to be in the most chaotic time. It’s good to be His child!
