7 Quick Takes (Vol. 6)

Has it really been 6 months since the last time I linked up with Jen for 7 Quick Takes?!  Whoa.  Let's get this show on the road!

My health.  For those who have been following along with my health updates over the last few months, thank you.  A number of you reached out to me via e-mail, comment box, or text to say you were thinking of me and sending prayers.  In the grand scheme of things, I know this setback is just a small one, but your support means a great deal to me.

In the spirit of an update, I just thought I'd let you all know that my sense of anxiousness while driving has greatly subsided.  Driving to and from work has gotten easier with each passing day, and the last time I "practiced" driving on the interstate, the experience was much more pleasant.  I will test myself once again when Alex and I drive to/from Alexandria this weekend.  Hopefully it will be smooth sailing again here soon.  I'm also waiting on the results from my 4 week labs, so cross your fingers for good news there...

This weekend.  Of course, the two weekends Alex is off between July and December, I have to work. And did I mention he was free over the summer when my work schedule was packed full? [This stuff is for the birds, people!] Anyways...since I'm not comfortable driving long distances alone at this point, Alex is driving me to my weekend meeting in Alexandria on today, continuing to south Louisiana to spend the night at my parents' house, and returning to pick me up  tomorrow evening.  Technically, my meeting doesn't end until Sunday morning, but I decided to put my foot down and be selfish with my time, leaving on Saturday instead.  A girl wants to spend time with her husband, for goodness sakes!

New Phone.  The other piece to this whole logistical craziness for the weekend is that I am getting a new cell phone...but I don't get to see it or pick it out beforehand.  The company my family has our phones with is switching over to a larger-scale, Verizon-like system which means that every customer has to get a new phone.  Thankfully, the changeover is free, but everyone on family plans must make the switch during the same billing cycle.  That's a bit of a challenge for us, with 6 users living in 4 towns several hours apart.  We were finally able to coordinate a time to make the switch within a two week time frame, but due to my work conflict, Alex has to get there to turn in an old phone and get my new one.  He'll also have to select my new phone and get it all set up.  Meanwhile, I'll be without a phone for 24 hours...eek.  The one bright spot in this whole plan is that Alex will finally get a new phone - my hand-me-down Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini (which I LOVE) - to replace his old iPhone that has been falling apart for months.  He's also switching over to Straight Talk, which will save us $45 bucks a month.  #win

Life.  We have some other things in the works for us right now, so if you could keep us in your prayers on that, we would certainly appreciate it.  That's all I have to say about that!

Jams.  Ya'll, I am so in love with Jamberry.  The other day, I received a package with 9 new sets of nail wraps (not all for me!) and I am just itching to get those on.  I want to change the wraps out every week to try new designs, but they last a full two weeks so I can't bring myself to be wasteful!  So yeah, Jamberry.  Have you tried it yet?


Big Brother.  What would 7QT be without some mention of trash TV?  Less than 1 week until the Big Brother 16 Season Finale!  Seriously though, Derrick has this thing in the bag...and if he doesnt, something went very wrong between now and Wednesday.  Amirite?


Blog facelift.  Yes, I'm still working on the facelift for this here blog.  I started working on updating the About page (don't rush over there, it's not posted yet) and hopefully that will go live in the next few weeks or so.  According to Timehop, I changed the layout here exactly one year ago, so it makes sense as to why I'm ready for another change.  I don't know about you, but looking at the same color palate can get old quick!

And....that's what's up!

I always wondered Who are these people who have 'no life' to be on a reality show? Don't they have rent/student loans to pay?
