    Good Morning Friends!

    Weather: freezing cold!

    Sleep: Maybe 4 hours

    Mood: don't know yet, hopefully better

    Plans: Spend time with the kiddos. Maybe tonight go shopping for a maternity dress for Easter since I'm starting to barely show (earlier with # 3!).

    I hope you all have a happy Friday and a great weekend!

    Monkeybee congrats!!!! Three, wow you're truly blessed. Do you know if it's a boy or a girl yet??? Wish you all the luck in your pregnancy. My family said it was supposed to be cold for the next several days and you all might get snow. Hope you don't. Not to rub it in or anything, but it's supposed to be sunny and 88 tomorrow. (= Stay warm and be safe!!!

    Weather: Overcast, not sure how warm. Too dang early.

    Mood: ???? Too tired to care.

    Sleep: What's that??? Couldn't get to sleep last night and my darling loving husband woke me up too dang early.

    Plans: Mess around on the computer, maybe go shopping, not sure. Trying to decide if I want to grill hamburgers or steak tomorrow since it's supposed to be nice and we found out the complex put in nice grills up by the picnic area. Sometimes it pays to go walking. (smirk) Hope everyone has a fantastic friday and wonderful week-end.

    Congrats monkeybee on the lil monkey to be lol

    Weather - OMG, just looked an it's 28 degrees! Doesn't God know it's spring? lol

    Sleep - slept great with the help of stress and temazepam!

    Mood - not too bad

    Plans - Maybe go to costco - need me some blueberries! well ,and a few other things, but da booberries is priority! Did you know that blueberries (among other foods) are a good anti-inflammatory food? I've been reading on eating anti-inflamatory foods and avoiding pro-inflammatory foods, to try to reduce the inflamation in my body the natural way. There's a lot to be said for this sister has inflammatory problems too and she adheres to thsee foods and it hellps her!

    Ok, plans, Debbie, we're talking about plans.....oh heck, I don't know! Other than costco, my plan today is to just do whatever is set before me to do at the time. lol Oh, I think I iwll read some more of my tdocs's really good!

    Have a great day and weekend, and try to get into trouble...oopps, I mean, stay out of trouble!

    Good afternoon my friends!

    I had keyed in 80% of my post, when the screen started to jump around. I'm only giving highlights now.

    Weather: Sunny and in the 70's.

    Mood: Frustrated and tired.

    Sleep: Terrible. I'm going to make this as simple as can be. I have not slept well for 2 weeks because of pain in my hips and my sciatica is inflamed. . I have been using Ambien and Seroquel, which had been subscribed by my pdoc. I was not able to sleep more than 20 minutes during the day on Thursday, so it took me 45 minutes to get to sleep. Then In walks my husband, wakes me up so I can get another Ambien for him. I told him no because he had taken the max. I was so pissed off that he woke me up for that. I have told him in the past he needs his doc to change his sleeping pill and get a small amount of Tylenol with codeine for the times he gets a stress headache. I feel like I need a note to his doctor for the meds he needs when Tim goes in for his 3 month evaluation.

    Plans: I cancelled a physical therapy appt because I am too tired. I am hoping to get a nice nap in.

    Hugs to all,

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Cookie darling, I would love to have you here. However I'm sad to report that a dang front came through today and it's supposed to not only rain tomorrow but now only get to 73. So no cookout. Yet. But eventually spring will sprung and I'll get my steak. Have a good week-end girlfriend.
