Mid-Week Randomness

I'm having a whirlwind of a week.  I'll have posts every day through Friday, but don't expect a lot this week. 

First of all, I have a winner to my contest.  Congratulations to Erica B!  Erica entered multiple times, and her comment about her swinger chiropractor was the actual entry to win.  The local store where I buy most of my gift cards was out of stock on Visa cards, so Erica will be getting a $25 American Express gift card instead of a $20 Visa card.  Erica, please email me at TwentyFourAtHeart@yahoo.com with your mailing address so I can get your card out in the mail to you.  Congratulations again!

As a reminder, my 24th birthday celebration will be coming up shortly.  I will have more contests then to celebrate.  Please note, Erica took the time to enter the current contest NINE times.  If I have a contest where you're allowed more than one entry, go for it!  It increases your odds of winning.  Stay tuned for details on celebrating my 24th!

Other very random randomness:
One of the reasons why I have very little writing time this week is because I have a total of FIVE medical appointments this week for my arm and shoulder.  In addition, I've spent eons of time the past few days on the phone with my lawyer regarding the accident related lawsuit.

Awhile ago I got an email from a reader who is involved in the medical field wanting details as to exactly what's wrong with my arm.  It would take pages and pages to explain it all.  In short, I was gripping the steering wheel with my right arm when Idiot ran the stop sign and hit me.  Things ruptured in my shoulder from the impact.  You name a part of the shoulder  (ligament, tendon, muscle, rotator cuff, cartilage, bone, shoulder capsule, etc.)  and I either no longer have it, or it has been surgically altered.  That's as quick of a recap as I can provide.  I am in a much better place than I was a year ago and thank God for that.  I appreciate the interest and concern!

As for the lawsuit, the case has settled.  It is a tremendous weight off my shoulders to have that behind me.  There will be months of bureaucracy ahead, but eventually I should be able to pay all my overdue medical bills.  That would include paying The Torturer who has kindly treated me for over two years with no compensation.  Yeah, I know I bitch about him all the time.  He deserves it.  He has, however, been extremely kind about taking all my abuse while never receiving a penny from me.  Go figure.

Other unrelated random randomness:
I've run into three Money Town female acquaintances in the last two weeks with new fake boobs.  This would not even be worth mentioning, but all three women are mid-forties or older.  Usually it's the 20-30 year old Money Town women getting new boobs.  Maybe they are going through a mid-life crisis, or maybe their husbands are?  It seemed a little odd to me.  It's like a mid-life new boob-fest.

Lastly:
There's a new male patient at PT who's been trying to pick up on me.  He's a Money Town man (he even smells like money!) and I have yet to peg him with a nickname.  He's pretty fit, doesn't wear a wedding ring, but I do!  I'm hoping he'll be good for a few fun blog posts soon!  Either that or he'll have another one or two conversations with me, realize what I'm really like, and quickly disappear.

That's it for today.  Sorry it's so random, but it's that kind of week.  Congratulations again to Erica!

    Yay on the lawsuit settling! And knowing that you can now start to think about paying bills – that’s got to be a HUGE weight off your mind – and maybe will help with the movement of your arm, carrying that stress around isn’t easy on either the mind or the body. Maybe the Torturer will be ‘kinder’ knowing that you will be able to pay him 😉

    I’m so happy to hear the law suit has settled and this is the beginning of the end of your legal battle. What a relief for you!
    Maybe you can call him Smelly.

    Congratulations to Erica!
    Nine times, huh?
    I’m sure there’s a sense of relief that the lawsuit is over. I hope it covers everything for you.
    And it sounds like the mid-life Money Town women are trying to compete with the younger ones. Aaahh to be so shallow.

    Yay for settling your suit! Putting on my attorney hat, I can confidently tell you that getting your case settled will do alot for your peace of mind and healing, both mental and physical. I’ve represented several clients in particularly personal and painful cases and have seen how much “healing” they had when they had closure on the situation. XOXO to you!

    Yay for you! I hope that this brings some closure and peace to your life now. I cannot wait until my case is settled but that won’t be for awhile yet. When it does I will be doing the happy dance and celebrating.
    I hope that this week goes well with all your appointments and all. I look forward to reading more about this new guy.

    I can’t decide if I am more excited about MY winning or YOUR winning (or settling as the case may be).
    Thank you!!! I was really fighting myself about spending the money on the Twilight Series (that nearly every blog I read raves about and my best friend told me was “life changing”) and now I will go out and buy them happily 🙂

    Do older women get wrinkly boobs or youthful boobs? Must keep those plastic surgeons busy… you know, does the skin tone match?

    Alas, some closure:) Congratulations.
    Hey, Freebird is playing on the radio…how apropos (even though I hate that song!).
    About boobs, 40-year old women with perky 20-year old boobs look abnormal. I remember a patient I had taken care of in a nursing home had a boob job about 20-30 years ago…she was ahead of her time. Anyway, those perky things looked so strange on her otherwise, aging 70ish-year old body. Can I pose a question to the male readers? When men see women with obviously fake boobs, it is a turn on, even though they’re obviously not real? Less of a turn on?
    Just curious.

    Congratulations on the terrific news! I know all your readers want to give you a group hug. I completely agree with ballerinatoes on the emotional healing factor that will take place. Nothing will ever be as it should with your shoulder, but hopefully this very painful chapter will come to a conclusion. Lots of hugs…

    Thanks, jo, I always wondered how those fake boobs would hold up in a nursing home. I can see the appeal of getting nice, fresh ones in midlife, but the reality is that they can’t help but look stupid.
    Congrats on your settlement! My sister had a malpractice case drag on for 8 years. It finally settled, and she was able to go on with her life.

    Congratulations on the settlement. Wow. I’m with missy on the group hug – (((((((24))))))). I’m glad you will be able to cover your medical bills, and I really hope you get something for our pain and suffering. YOUR pain and suffering. No, really, congrats. 😀
    And mid-life-fake-boobs? Is that the female equivalent of a penile implant?

    Already chimed in on the settlement thing. CONGRATS AGAIN! So now I’m on to the mid 40’s boob job thing. Would I? No. Had I had children? maybe. Do I know anyone? Yes. she’s 67ish, looks 50ish (from California) she’s in better shape physically than I am (at 47 thanks Lo =) and she looks freaking fantastic!

    I know you are so relieved to have that lawsuit over and off your mind. No amount of $$$ will give you back what’s been taken from you but I hope it helps make things a little easier.
    Tell Money Man you’d love to get to know him better and maybe you’ll have more time after you get that nasty STD all cleared up. I’m sure he’ll lose interest fast. LOL
    I’ve been known to tell people things like that just to watch their mouths drop open. But only if I think I won’t have to interact with them socially later on. Ha!

    Yahoo; what a relief to have that over and done with. Not that it compensates for losing the use of your arm, but at least it will pay your medical bills. Whew!
    That’s funny, because I always thought it was women in their 40s who got boob jobs. Women in their 20s are generally still very perky. In your 40s and up, they somehow end up somewhere in the vicinity of your navel! Maybe these women are hoping that if they have boobs like a 20 year old, their husbands won’t feel the need to have a fling with a 20 year old. LOL
