Good Day and Poison Ivy Recovery

Great day all around today.  Knocked a presentation out of the park to my boss and his boss with my entire team present.  Very very good.  Then I ran off to a doctor's appointment with a specialist about my varicose veins.  We have a follow up appointment scheduled to do a procedure with injections that she says will fix it all up.  Unfortunately, insurance won't cover it, but it's not as expensive as I thought it would be.  So June 13th I hope to see the last of the nasty veins on the back of my right leg.  The end of itching in the middle of the night.

On the flip side, Tommy is getting over from poison ivy or some other kind of contact rash.  It showed up on Wednesday afternoon, but we think he was in contact on Easter Sunday during the Easter Egg Hunt at my sister-in-law's.  I don't blame them though.  Tommy is the only kid that kept walking through the few areas of brush in their backyard.  Every other kid avoided it, but Tommy walked straight through it.  Benadryl at naptime or bedtime and then Benadryl cream have been helping.  He's been to the doctor twice and she confirmed it's a contact rash, probably poison ivy.

I'm also trying to finish up my MBA application.  I have to get my GPA from my bachelor's degree.  I can't remember it.  I also have to upload a recent copy of my resume and get two recommendations.  Wish me luck!


This really is the year of ACTION for you - I love it :)

My colleague's wife had that vein thing done and said it was a good idea - hope yours is good too.

Also, i cannot believe how big Phoebe's getting - she is so lovely and tall! And the BOYS are definitely not babies anymore *sob*

The thought of going back to school is making me cringe! Best of luck!!

And they can fix varicose veins with an injection?! Hmmm....

I'd like to inquire about doing a sponsored blog post - about 150-300 words that talks a little bit about Immigration Visas and links back to our site We are a immigration visa company and thought we might be a good fit for your readers/visitors on

Here's a list of some blog post titles we've done in the past:
- How to Get Your Marriage Visa
- Things To Know Before Applying For Your Immigration Visa
- How to Get Help With Your Immigration Process

Our budget is around $15 for the post. Is this something you'd be open to?

Also we might be interested in a small banner ad if the price is right.
Our budget is $40/year - something like this:

Let me know if you'd be open to either or both of these.

Also if you have some other sites just send them over and we might be interested in doing a sponsored post on there as well!
