Stupid Urethra

It's the middle of the night (sort-of) and I can't sleep. Why? Because I have a stupid UTI and I have to pee every 10 minutes. SO annoying! SO! I can only assume that this is a result of a lack of,er, affection between husband and I for a good bit of time due to the holiday traveling and what not. Because shortly after resuming normal activities, I am still thinking of that night- though not in positive ways now :)
The worst part is that I started feeling bad on Tuesday, went to the doctor on Thursday. It wasn't like one of those UTI's where you feel like you have to pee non-stop. It was mild and I thought I had taken care of it in time. Well now, after 4 days of antibitoics, I am feelnig MUCH worse in that department. Peeing non-stop, constant know, all the details you don't want to hear. I feel the need to share :)
So it looks like either I don't have a UTI, maybe something else like urinary stones (PLEASE NO), or this particular antibiotic isn't targeting what it should be and I need something else.

Ugh. back to the doctor again. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

At least before I started feeling really bad, I was able to go out this weekend and spend some of my Christmas gift cards/money. Which is always nice. I racked up at Victorias Secret with 2 bras, 4 pajama sets, and 7 pair of undies! I also got new socks for the kids and new undies for daughter, and threw out all of their old ones. I was able to pack up their clothes that they have outgrown (note to self: living in FL , buy enough summer clothes to last in the winter as well- son is growing like a weed and why are summer clothes hard to find here??? It's 70 degrees for crying out loud!),and bought a few new tshirts and shorts for son. I also was able to purchase the new bedding and stuff to decorate daughter's room in a very woodsy-girly type of deal from Pottery Barn. I am SO loving it already, and it's not even here yet :)

So in spite of having the bladder of a newborn puppy (I say this because I know. My dog pees more than a man with two swollen prostates), I did still accomplish a lot. Those 15+ boxes of Christmas toys still sit, wrapped, in the living room. I refuse to unpack them until I finish my final house organization task for upstairs, which is daughters closet. It's an all day job.

Thankfully my turn-your-pee-orange pills have kicked in and I am beginning to feel as though I may be able to sleep. I hope that next time I can update with more note worthy things :)

omigosh ow ow ow oh I hurt for you.

The reason it's hard to find summer clothes is because we usually do actually get winter. It does usually get jacket cold for a couple of months. This year is just special :)
