    Weather: Hot. Nuff said

    Sleep: Cha right

    Mood: Blah. Depressed more than anything.

    Plans: Step-daughter and grandbaby are over. So got up and baby-proofed what I could in the house. Hubs is napping with the grandbaby. Not happy about that simply because he's not visiting his daughter and it's his excuse to sleep off his extra-curricular activities. I'm making homemade chicken burritos for dinner. And then I don't know. Feel like going to bed, but since the boys are here, I need to hang out with them. School starts soon for them, and I won't have them everyday. A mix of sadness and happiness. Sad that they won't be part of my everyday life, but relieved that I will have some room to sit and breathe. Will be an early night for me because I have class tomorrow. That's about it.

    Weather: Humid, which causes my asthma to act up

    Sleep: not well

    Mood: Depressed. I hurt soooooooo bad, I cant stand it. I just want to lay in bed and cry. Everything hurts, my neck, shoulders back, hip and leg but the very worst pain is my VLSC. The pain meds hardly work and they cause my asthma to act up. I just want the pain to stop. Im so tired of living with pain because what I am doing is NOT called living.

    Love you guys. muahs
