    Good morning....

    Weather: Hot, humid, sunny then rain. Wash rinse repeat.

    Sleep: Not enough. Took meds 2 hours earlier than normal, was still up until 1. Alarm went off at 6:45.

    Mood: Still way down.

    Plans: I'm up. Eaten some cereal. Have done my hair, nails, makeup finished. Gathered my camera, notebook paper, entrance tickets. Gotten directions to the convention. And we'll leave in about 1/2 hour. It's in Orlando. Big Holiday kick off. We plan on having dinner out after.

    TRIGGER: This is simply not the year to be living on our street. MIL fell and broke her hip in March. Old lady 2 doors down, fell and broke hers in May. In July, woman up the street was rushed out for chest pains and severe dehydration. Later that month, the old man that was beaten by robbers (the 71 yr old who made national news because the perps were prison escapees from Wisconsin) happened around the corner. The following week, the cops shot and killed a fleeing man with a gun at the front of the street. Two weeks ago, we had 10 cop cars and a K9 unit descend because a boy's bike got jacked. Last week, the lady across the street called the crisis line and 8 cars showed up. Saturday the next door neighbor's daughter fell down her steps outside and needed an ambulance. And yesterday, the same neighbor, we hear, lost her husband yesterday. Could be hearsay, but we know a hospital is involved and everyone hauled ass and were gone most of the night. We need to move!

    Good afternoon all

    Weather: Warm and sunny

    Sleep: Woke up many times last night because I crashed when I got home last night

    Mood: Good

    Plans: Db called yesterday afternoon right after I got off work which the conversation was unsettling and sent me spiraling downward. Yesterdays painting plan delayed because I went to bed early. Might have the energy to do today what I wanted to do yesterday.

    Have a wonderful day

    Evening Y'all. Things are much better here in good ol' Texas. I actually got some sleep, although hubby claims I was cussing him out in my sleep. I have no memory of this, but it's not the first time I've talked in my sleep. I shared a room with my older niece when I visited last year and she complained of me saying weird things. Oh well, it's the mania. What can I say??

    Weather: Cooler. Mid 90's. Not as humid thanks to yesterday's rain.

    Mood: Better. Had a session with our couples counselor and got some things off our chest.

    Plans: Doctor aptts and shopping all day. Fun fun fun. Now I'm wore out and ready to settle in for the night. Hope everyone had a good day. I did. Night all.

    Good Evening Everyone!

    Weather:Sunny bright not to hot high 76

    Sleep:Pretty good

    Mood:Decent at least

    Plans:I took kids to an appointment where one of them needs blood work done. I'll do that Saturday when I have more gas in the van. I went to psych rehab discussed my goals with new counselor. We will work on them next week after therapy. Kids will be in school by then. I tried doing an internet thing for the kids grades but only got one registered, another failed to work, and one doesn't even show up. I also tried searching out bus schedules that mass phone call from school says is up and running on school's website. Strike two on this count. So tomorrow praying I can make it school and home again to straighten this out. Ugghh I hate this time of year cuz nothing seems to work like its suppose too.
