Well I HOPE there isn't another one of these cause this board is driving me sorry if there is and I don't see it

Weather: Absolutely gorgeous.

Sleep: A whopping 5 hours. Couldn't get to sleep and then the alarm went off so I could go do laundry, blew that off and overslept.

Mood: A tad better than yesterday. Don't know why. Maybe I needed to laugh, to spite all the crappola, especially yesterday. Old friends are good, especially goofy ones.

Plans: Well laundry didn't happen. Packed up most of what dh need to get through to Wed. Left home at 9. Drove to kids' house 22 miles. Spent 1 1/2 hrs there with ex helping me explain what happened to DH and why he's in a hospital so far away. Answered lots of questions for ds2 for a change. But ex has promised to make sure they understand and he'll answer anything they want to know. Thinks he knows now that ds1 will rat him out in a heartbeat if anything negative is said. Even ex thought his med list was too extensive for getting in a few days and looked up some interactions for me to take with me for my visit. Then he even offered to bring the kids down to spend weekends with me or to make them available during the week since I can see dh both sat and sun. We'll see. Then it was off to my mom's since I scared the hell out of her over the phone last night. Kind of broke down and she always thinks I'm going over the deep end when I am like that. Had a nice Easter lunch with them and assured her and step dad that I am handling it much better now that I've processed it. You know the I'm ok mask. Shrug. Then it was a 70 mile drive from there to see dh for a whopping 45 minutes because they moved him to a different unit and visiting hours fell back an hour. Not sure how I made it in time. Then another 55 miles back home. So I've driven close to 200 miles today and I haven't gone to get what I need for the next few days for lunches and dinner. All I'm picking up are some lean cuisines or weight watcher frozen dinners. Haven't been very hungry OR don't want to cook for just me. Thinking I might go to Ocala cause it would save some miles and stay from Wed to Wed with my pseudo sister. Maybe being away from here will help even more. Not sure yet. to the grocery so I can come home and crash!

Later taters!
