Welcome to 3 Things I’m Lovin Tuesday! Sorry I haven’t had a post since Friday, but unfortunately my effed up armpit has been ruining my week. So thats’ why I have 2 good things, and 1 that SUCKS!
1. Mini Surgery (TMI Warning)
I’ll start with bad things first… Last Wednesday, I noticed a painful bump in my armpit. I thought it was an ingrown hair and tried to get rid of it but over the weekend it got worse and worse. On Sunday after my run, It hurt so bad (and was the size of a big gumball) that I knew I had to go to the doctor asap. Yesterday the doctor said it was an abscess (look it up on Wikipedia if you want to puke) that had to be “removed”. I instantly freaked. I started antibiotics yesterday and today was the un-lucky day. The procedure only took about 15 minutes but the first couple minutes were excruciatingly painful because the local anesthesia wasn’t working well. It felt like a huge knife going into my arm (which was probably the case). After the 2nd shot kicked in I wasn’t in that much pain but I felt lots of cutting and digging. Hearing scissors snipping away did not help. Then the doctor said, “Oh, I just found another abscess”. The whole thing was horrible. Now I wait to see what it was…probably some kind of staph infection. Now my wound is stuffed with gauze and I can’t get stitches until Friday, to let it drain if needed. That also means no working out for at least a week. Boooo!
Now onto the good stuff! This is my new favorite snack bar. I think it’s been around for at least a few months, but I just got my hands on my first one last week. I’ve had them every other day since then. It’s just enough coconut and just enough chocolate, and has the perfect blend of crunch & chew. Just like biting into paradise…ahhh.
3. Game of Thrones
It took me Saturday, Sunday, and Monday…but I watched all 10 episodes of season 1. It is a tad bit confusing understanding the Kings, Lords, yada yada, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly. It is an intense show with so much going on. Just the first episode had a drunken dwarf, twin brother-sister banging, and (attempted) child murder. It is intense! The last 2 episodes were my two favorites, things happen I would have never thought a show would do on season 1 with their main characters. I can’t wait until season 2 starts in April.
What’s sucky or amazing for you this week?
