Quite a shock!

October 13th, 2009 at 06:11 pm

I was ready to come home and get caught up on tidbits from the last few days... only to come home to find news that a classmate had passed away unexpectedly! I remember her as a healthy, energetic person. I can't comprehend her complaining of a headache and chest pains for a few days, and then being found unconscious at her home. We weren't really friends, but my class was relatively small and everyone knew each other. Word spread like wildfire on Facebook. Facebook is funny in that respect, and it IS nice that we can all grieve together if we'd like to. I still have tears in my eyes. To my knowledge, we hadn't lost a classmate yet.

I cleaned a turtle tank to try and get my mind off the news.

I haven't been feeling too good myself the last few days. Sunday, just before dinner, my stomach started bothering me. No clue why. Dinner didn't go over well with an upset tummy. Yesterday and today it just feels like someone punched me in the stomach. Just pain, that's all. Last night I had one of my favorite comfort foods: Campbell's cream of chicken soup. It didn't help like I had hoped. Tonight, another comfort food: Burger King Tendercrisp sandwich. DELICIOUS! I splurged on it for myself. I had to! Tummy still hurts and I still don't feel good. Frown I don't regret getting it though. Worth a shot.

Woo hoo! My most recent payments hit the student loan and the balance is now 1115.65. Soon, very soon. Smile
I think I confused them though. I don't really understand why they recalculated my payment. It was: 80.85 for 11 months, 79.29 for 12 months, 77.86 for 12 months. It's now 53.82, then 52.79, then 51.83. Aw, how nice of them to allow me to pay this off over the next three years. Uh, NO.

Just taking it easy the rest of the evening. I ran a load of laundry for DH earlier. Dishes DESPERATELY need to get done, but that might have to wait. I'm too tired. Work has been really tough the last two days - no boss and no assistant. Just ME! Ah well.

    I have not felt well in my tummy for a week! Not bad enough to stay home sick, but bad enough to be uncomfortable. I hope we both get over it soon!

    Neither of you should let this go untreated. If it is still bothering you, you should go and have it checked out!

    I'm sorry for your loss.

    I hope your stomach starts feeling better soon - but like boo said, if it doesn't, then you might want to get it checked out.

    So sorry to hear of your classmate passing. My first boyfriend was the first to pass away in my class and then we had one boy die in a car-wreck my Senior year. Tough stuff.

    Way to go knocking Sallie Mae nigh on to flat!!!

    Feel better!

    Thanks Lux - been feeling better for a couple of days now. Today is the first I feel back to normal.

    Oh wow, tough stuff for sure! I can't imagine. This is still a bit of a shock even though I wasn't good friends with her. Someone I knew and would have talked to - MY age!

    I hope to get another blog entry up later. Going crazy catalina shopping!!!
