B-Fast Ham & Swiss Sand

Everything you need to get your day going on a bagel! I love breakfast sands because there are so many options, they are easy to transport to work or even eat them on the way there. Personally, I find the Everything Bagel a great choice for a sandwich. It adds a lot of different flavor to the sandwich itself from all the seeds and spices. The bagel sandwich and the breakfast burrito are my personal favorite breakfast items next to pancakes & bacon! Enjoy!

First off, I hope that you all had a great weekend and hopefully did not have to work to hard and had a chance to relax. Now, as for my weekend, where do I even begin, Good News ? Bad News ? Good News Again ? LOL. I will just take it from the top. A while back, around 6 months ago, I had some issues with a skin infection under my arm, cellulitis, that was very painful and I had to make a few trips to the Docs and once to the ER to get it handled. Some time passed and all was well. However, last week I noticed it starting to return, so as before, I used some topical antibiotic cream, but this time it ended up infected worse than before. By Friday night, the swelling had become so bad, I could barely move my right arm and Aimy did some research, made some calls, and we went to the walk-in on Saturday morning. After waiting a couple hours, they were able to remove most of the infection, give me a bunch of pain medicine and antibiotics and send me on my way. Thankfully I am feeling much better now, but I must wait on the results of the lab tests to see if there is something with my blood that keeps causing this to return and cause problems such as the one I had Friday night. So that was some Bad News & Good News and I am HOPING for GREAT NEWS when I get the results back next week when I return for my checkup. Fingers Crossed!

THE CAR SITUATION! This is just great news! Aimy was able to find a mechanic that came to our place and looked at her car and he was able to repair it. We should have it back today so that is just awesome! Additionally, he also said he would be able to get my car repaired and get it through the bullshit California SMOG check so that I can finally get the registration sticker and papers for my car! FINALLY! So by Tuesday evening we should have both cars back and fully functional! As bad as this month started, after Doctors, Mechanics, Illnesses, & loads of stress, this month looks like it will end on a positive note! HOORAY!
