Blathering

I don’t have much to share, just feel I should write “something”…

Saw National Treasure 2 on Sunday with Jake, my sister and my nephew. It was pretty cool. We enjoy a good adventure 🙂 My sister and I were considering creating a National Treasure Tour for the boys. She’s got a background in travel, so this should be interesting…

I rearranged my bedroom. Pretty much back to the original layout from when I moved in, but I got smaller night stands (and ones that closely match my bed) so it flows a bit better and doesn’t cover the heater. Still have to get rid of the old nightstands and do some dusting/cleaning/purging/organizing. Been thinking of turning my HUGE walk-in closet into a sitting room…will see how that pans out.

Want to rearrange (and CLEAN!) Jake’s room. Trying to come up wtih a layout that works best…and one he can keep clean…the mess is driving me batty!

I think I may attack my kitchen this weekend. I want to move some furniture out of the way and begin popping tiles off the wall (who had the bright idea to put PLASTIC tile on the walls in the kitchen?!?!). Also considering moving the existing cabinetry around, but can’t find how it’s currently installed…will have to check that out.

Got my cycle on Sunday (a full week earlier than I had thought it would show). Today begins the horrible cramping and heavy flow (TMI, I know, but get over it). I’m already exhausted/stressed, this just adds to the exhaustion…and when I’m tired, I am VERY cranky…PMS, what a joy!

As much as I hate it, I think I have to bring back (AGAIN) the dreaded To Do List. It keeps me informed and gives me a plan to go by…something I’ve been lacking and I hate just twisting in the wind…

Maybe I’ll work on Jake’s room a bit during the week. I WILL ask for help with moving the furniture as I just don’t have the umph anymore *sigh*

Getting Better

My nerve pain is doing much better. I wouldn’t really call it “pain” anymore, but more like “annoyance”. I can feel it start to pinch/pull and I stop…but if I go slowly, I can push past the pinch/pull and get full range of motion. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but damn it, I want my life back! (such as it was…)

Jacob got his appliance yesterday. He was very good at the ortho and is in relatively little pain. I’m very proud of him. 🙂 He’s having a bit of difficulty with speech and suffering from a little drooling problem at the moment, but the whole experience has been quite positive.

When I got home from work yesterday, the kids were playing in the front yard(s). I don’t know what posessed us, but Nat and I hopped on N’s and Jake’s bikes and went for a ride. We looked ridiculous! LOL But had a total blast. Makes me want to start riding mine again…hopefully soon.

I needed that bit of silliness. I had been fighting a migraine from lunchtime on and was just going to give into it and go to bed, but the enorphin rush of laughs and the ride REALLY helped keep it at bay. It wasn’t “gone”, but I didn’t feel nauseous or whiney anymore. Ah, the power of positive attitudes…

Regardless of the headache, both Jacob and I were out cold before 9 last night. How sad is that?!?! Jacob’s fighting allergies and I’m suffering from “female issues” so, I totally understand WHY we conked, but it wouldn’t be so bad if I actually felt rested this morning. Good note? I actually slept through until 5 am! Small miracles, but I’ll take ’em! 😉
