    Weather: Already rained which means it's going to be one hot humid day

    Sleep: Like crappola

    Mood: Total 180 from yesterday...angry and irritable and depressed again. Hubs asked last night if I needed to go to hospital. Told him the depression was situational and no reason to. Can't leave the problem behind to rethink. I take it with me, so no.

    Plans: Woke with a migraine that isn't going away even with meds. Have to take the para-transit bus to the awful opthalmologist. He's missed my low-vision/blindness problem once already and sent me away. Not happy about this visit. Come home and see if the migraine has backed down, if not, off to hospital for the cocktail of meds. Figure out what I am going to do for dinner because hubs is hungry around 5 and kids come back between 5 and 7. Might not be able to cook if migraine is still bad. That's about it.

    Hello friends!

    Weather: humid!

    Sleep: broken

    Mood: anxious

    Plans: Hubs is still not working and currently grilling out for lunch (he is starting to get better). I am taking the kiddos swimming a little later at my mom and dad's. Hopefully will be a fun day.

    Hi Monkey, hope you have fun at your folks' pool. I may give in and hit our's myself. Only problem is I don't really feel like dealing with a bunch of kids and during the day that's when all the families take their's. We've also had some problems with vandalism AGAIN, so before I go if I go, have to call the office and even find out if the stupid pool is open. I swear it's been closed more than open this summer it seems. Dreading renewing our lease. In the seven years Matt and I have been married it's gone up almost $100 plus the new management company raised our water, may have to seriously think about finding a cheaper place to live. Either that or get rid of the cats and move into a smaller apartment here. Neither idea is too appealing.

    Weather: Hot and Humid. Was 104 yesterday. Ugh. Nuff said.

    Sleep: Okay. Dang cat woke me up again. Second day in a row. Oh how I wish the ac worked in our bedroom so we could close the door and keep the monsters out. But the vents don't work, so I suffer in silence.

    Mood: Pretty good. Actually feel like taking an interest in things today. Been struggling and forcing myself to do stuff.

    Plans: Hubby works tonight, so I'm gonna finish a library book I got two weeks ago and maybe read something else. Don't know. Need to work on the afghan I'm making for Monkeybee. Just can't seem to concentrate on anything for an extended period of time. Hopefully will improve soon. Finally going to get to see my family for the first time in almost 3 years. Leaving the 22nd. Can't wait!!! Now just have to figure out how we're gonna pay for it. Hopefully my grandmother will help out like she did the last time I came home. Got my fingers crossed. Take care my friends and have a wonderful friday and a blessed week-end.
