I'm totally blogging this for posterity sake and the fact that I'm STILL laughing about it. So here it goes...

Yesterday Ted and I got in to a heated discussion on where the money was going and such. You know what I'm talking about if you are the person responsible for getting ALL the bills paid. So Ted left for work on a not very pleasant note and I proceeded to make and "accounting" of where all the monies were going to and mostly consisted of our favorite store Costco. And at the end of my short and to the point e-mail I asked "Any questions?!?" We exchanged some e-mails back and forth with the hopes of coming to terms with the budget and expenses that needed to be paid and then came an e-mail from Ted saying this:

"I have a pain in my chest - right side of sternum and it hurts to take a full breathe. I woke up with it. ???

The budget you have is good.
Thanks for doing that."

I'm thinking to myself...so do I knowing where all this money is going and not a penny left over and I have a pain in my neck from doing this ALL myself. I didn't e-mail him back. Then he sent me another e-mail and this is what it said:

"I think I have this "costochondritis"

I laughed out loud and sent him an e-mail that said HAHAHA! I thought that it was funny because he was making a joke about money and everything costing SO much and then I left for the morning to run errands and stuff. When I got home I checked my e-mail and he sent this:

"thanks for laughing"

So I immediately called him and he was SERIOUS! He really was in a lot of pain and he thought I was acting like a jerk to him because of our "discussion" earlier in the day. Fast forward to this morning and a visit to the urgent care he does truly in fact have costochondritis. It is inflammation in the ribs and he has to take high doses of Advil for the next couple of days. I'm amazed that he self-diagnosed and got it right and to think...how much money we could have saved by not going to urgent care!

I'm going to preface this by saying that this is a "girly post." Not that I think any guys read this or anyone for that matter, but just as a courtesy!

So yesterday I finally got myself a new bra. You have to understand that I have been dealing with Victoria Secret bras for years and finally after my last experience there (with my three kids!) I have moved on and went somewhere else. Thankfully I was by myself which is rare because I have a cling-on named Noah. Well after being measured correctly and trying on 6 different styles I found the one. I have discovered that not all bras are equal and just because you know your size does not make it automatically fit. This has been problematic in the past. I have also discovered much to my dismay or amazement depending how you look at it-I am downright perky again! Who knew?!? I almost feel obscene like I'm sticking them out there for everyone to see and not doing it on purpose. I even had to ask my husband if I looked too weird and he said no and basically it's good to see them back where they belong! NICE! An instant $21 boob job with no pain involved!

Other things that are going on...I'm starting to feel a heck of a lot better. I am also enjoying American Idol and Brooke White was awesome and I am now in love with Jason Castro because he is so darn cute! I have to tell you why I like Brooke so much because when Randy said to her "I can picture you younger sitting at your piano and playing this..." I was truly moved by this image. I have always wanted to be a singer. I can play the piano exactly like her. Someways I wish that i had been way more aggressive in my music but hearing that song "Let it be" was just a calming experience that said to me it is okay to let it be and continue on teaching piano and singing in my own little world. I sing because it brings joy to me or helps me find peace in the chaos. That is good enough and it was just a really neat experience. I am actually crying while I type this because if you truly know me you know that music means more than practically anything in this world. It is probably the only thing that can move me so powerfully to make change in my life. Sometimes it is hard to let dreams go and have the assurance that it was the right thing to do. I hope that I will get opportunities to share the talents that Heavenly Father saw fit to give me, so that others will feel the love that He has for them. I feel loved by Him when I play and/or sing.

I finally got to see August Rush on pay per view and I LOVED it. I only let my kids see the end of it because there is too much cussing in it that I didn't feel comfortable with them watching. I highly recommend this movie. I would love the soundtrack.
