    Hello dahlings, beep beep

    Weather: still too chilly for me.

    Sleep: good

    Mood: good

    Plans: Not sure. There is a lot I could do but I have no motivation to do it. Besides, my LSC pain is miserable again. Last night my tail bone was killing me even after I took a Lyrica, muscle relaxer and pain pill. Don't want another repeat of last night.

    Have a happy happy joy joy day. muahs

    Thirsty Thursdays it is!

    It was raining here earlier when I looked out

    Sleep sucked to be honest, I keep waking up and not being able to fall asleep, I didn't want to take a sleep aid because I had to make a phone call this morning....

    Mood is ok i guess, feeling tired and lazy and upset that this headache won't go away yet...


    and out of those 4 things above, i predict i get 2 of them actually done! ha!
    My son was scheduled for tutoring today but I called to cancel because he's starting a new semester until week after next & had his final yesterday. So I'm planning to stay home today quite honestly because I'm exhausted and have caught myself wanting to breakdown nearly daily lately, so today is going to be a "rest" day, as much as that's possible, though I do have a feeling my son will drag me along to the gym, which I suppose isn't all too bad.

    Have a good day everyone!!!
    When nothing's going right, go left!

    Weather: Cold and Rainy

    Sleep: Not well, but I didn't take the Klonapin so kinda my fault

    Mood: Still carrying that anxiety like a suitcase

    Plans: Just finished schooling the kids, and about to put the boys down for a nap. Then, who knows, maybe I'll read the Chronicles of Narnia which I have started rereading. They were my childhood favorites (just on the Magician's nephew right now).

    Afternoon all....

    Weather: Hot and sticky out. Back up to nearly 90 in the middle of January.

    Sleep: Broken. Went to bed at around 1, was back up at 3:30 to see dh off to work. Made him breakfast.

    Mood: Down. I've decided over the last month, especially since I have pretty much unpacked everything, that I am very lonely. Not sure what to do about that. Feeling trapped.

    Plans: Migrain-y. Hate these weather changes. And of course the new insurance wants to limit the amount of the migraine meds I can get each month. Going to crawl back into bed in a little while with an ice pack. Plan to make dinner and hang with dh a little bit.

    Melly, sorry you have a horrible migraine and problems with your insurance. Been there, done that!! Want to trade our 40's for your 90's??? I'll gladly do that if I could.

    Skypper sorry you've been run into the ground lately. Hope you can take today off also. Best advice I can give ya, take a hot bath and hide from the kids for a while.

    Weather: Partly cloudy and thank God no more rain!!!

    Sleep: Well, Matt claims I was talking in my sleep again and petting the cat, but I have no memory of doing so. So I guess sleep was good. Got at least 10 hrs, so it must have been.

    Mood: Pretty good.

    Plans: Hubby had to go into work early to cover for his boss, so I'm all alone. He he. Cooking dinner again tonight. Plans are to do so at least 3 times a week, 4 if possible. Determined to lose weight. Have appt with primary care doc next week to discuss fitness plan and changes to diet. Will do this or go down fighting!!!! Other than that, not much going on. Listening to old music from the 80's and 90's. Brings back the memories. Mainly good ones thank God. Take care my friends and have a good day.
