Mimi...I have had a crazy week. I messed up what days I was suppose to do things. I did get to a couple of important meetings..but messed up a couple of other important meetings..and we have so much going on right now.. I was having trouble sleeping last night, and took a flexeril. I haven't been taking them recently, as they make me too groggy..and today was no exception. I was in a fog all day, and hard to stay awake...long day.. ceceView Thread

Morning...just not a good week going on here, either, Mimi..not anything major luckily...just seems like I can't get 2 2 to equal 4... my way of saying things just are not clicking on all fronts ! oh dear..another crazy expression..
I thought I had to go to jury duty today, but when I looked at it last night, I realized I was suppose to go yesterday. I realize they make it so you can reschedule, etc..but I am asking for an excuse...just too many crazy things coming up, what with the parental issues and my daughter needs me to help with some things...and work starting and moving..etc..trying to get two days that I can concentrate on anything is crazy.
The job fair at work didn't lead to anything, so I guess here I sit for another year, unless something else comes up...We will see how that goes..
I did get to have coffee with my friend and my daughter was nice enough to bring her baby over so my friend could play with her ! That was a nice time.
Mimi...sorry your weekend was not good..and this will be a long week...seems like things are so stressful these days. I just read that next week ..or was it this week?? will be a blue moon and that things started a year ago will come to fulfillment..or something like that...hoping for some good things to happen..
it has been a bit stressful around here too.. just too much going on..
hi...Cymbalta was great for me for about a year..then all I could do was sleep. Some people have had some serious effects with Cymbalta..so what ever med you try...make sure you start slowly and watch for side effects.
Happy Friday. This is a day I am suppose to be getting organized, but every time I start something, I get interrupted. So much to do around here. I keep thinking I am getting some things done, but more and more pile up. It was nice this morning to talk to my oldest son. He moved to Seattle a couple of years ago, and we don't seem to talk much. Our schedules just never seem to be coordinated.
Mimi..I hear you on the school supplies for kids, but if you look through the summer, you can find some great deals. Staples, just last week had crayons for 25 cents, and notebooks for a dime. You just have to keep your eyes open and buy stuff they might need when you can.
Mimi...I also hope your DH had a nice birthday. I hope you both enjoy his retirement. I have had a problem dealing with my DH around the house. He likes to watch movies all the time..and I like peace and quiet. He nows spends at least one day per week, (and often more) volunteering at the thrift shop from our church, and I am glad to get him out of the house !
I guess I told you that my sisters came into town. They checked out what was at the house to be split up. They took some stuff with them. It seems terrible to do, since mom and dad are not dead, but the reality is we need to deal with these things. Not sure what I will do with what is left. They were not particularly helpful to me, but that is no surprise, and they came, got what they wanted, said hello to my parents, and left. At least that is behind me now.
I had better get something organized around here. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am just glad I am sleeping in my own bed !
Afternoon...last sister went home today...all is quiet here..it was a busy time...and will still be busy..so much to do..
Sarah..I am glad you have joined us again..welcome back..I sure know that feeling like thinking this is all curable, only to be hit with another round of "oh no it is not !"...Glad you did your trips in..
I will check in tomorrow..or the next day..I am super tired..didn't sleep well last night, and woke up to thunderstorms and rain today. usually IF we get any rain it is short lived. This has been HEAVY rain all day. We need it, BUT timing was not good for me. We had to switch out the double bed we put in for mom with a twin bed. Poor Ron and I were trying to move beds and mattresses in the rain.
Things are going ok with the sisters. They are over at the house packing up what they want...I don't even care what they take pretty much...
Dad looked better today than yesterday. Mom is actually being ok..things are improving. But Nancy...I loved your idea..
