    Morning/afternoon all

    Sorry I haven't been around a lot. Been very, very sick.

    Weather: Appears hot and steamy but I haven't gone outside yet

    Sleep: Good, but it's been a marathon

    Mood: Better

    Plans: Attempt to gain some strength back from whatever it was that I had. Fevers as high as 104.9. Both ends working overtime. Sorry for the TMI. Only good thing is I lost 5 lbs in 2 days. Wooohooo! NOT. I might try to do dishes and cook dinner, but it's going to depend on how long this spurt of energy lasts OR that my fever doesn't return. The boys started school yesterday. DS1 is in his JR year of high school. Darn I feel old just thinking about that. DS2 is in 7th grade. Doesn't impact me feeling as old as I do when I think about DS1. Time flies way too fast. They've returned to their dad's for the school year and the house sounds like a tomb. But other than being sick, things are good. Last week I managed to navigate the public bus system. I even walked through downtown while I waited for a bus. Went to lunch down streets I didn't know. Proud of myself. Oh, and I even tried riding a bike. Put a card in the spokes like we did as kids. Helps me to know how fast I am going. I was shaky and swerved all over, but with practice and improved confidence, I will be able to do that again. Had to take a double dose of my anxiety meds when I was finished though. Everyday I take something back, and everyday that doom and gloom mood lifts more and more. Look out world!!! Here I come!!!

    Good evening,

    Melly - You inspire me!

    Weather: Hotter than

    Sleep: 5 hours or so

    Mood: Good as long as I can have a lot of space to myself.

    Plans: Worked. Had permanent silicone plugs inserted into punctums. Hopefully, I will no longer have to do eye lube ritual at night and use eye drops by the gallons. I am going to exercise right now!
