Getting back into the swing of things
It's very difficult for me to try to blog--at all--after such a long absence. I feel like I should be writing something a lot less trivial than the minor details of my last few weeks. At the least, something slightly interesting.
There was a big semi-secretive investigation going on. One of the other wives was growing and possibly selling drugs out of her house. I was wrapped up in the middle of that for a few days. How I got involved: J of course! I was not too happy.
Sky, my beautiful almost four-year old, was very sick for a while. Her fever reached 104 degrees and stayed there for most of a two-day period. We had a nice visit at the hospital, where we all suddenly realized that Motrin
takes her fever down very quickly, where as Tylenol
is pretty useless at the same. She has since recovered from her virus and is back to her usual self. Since Sky is so super healthy all of the time, this was pretty scary. This was the first (and hopefully last) fever I've seen that high.
News of my father's current living arrangements have came to me through the 'grapevine'. Apparently, his new space has a 6'x6' bed--not made for sleeping in--, four wheels and a door on each side. At least when you hit rock bottom you can't get any lower. Oh, wait...yes you can! This space is shared by David's mom! And he got evicted again! Only this time, it was from a hospital parking lot!
I have to see a doctor this week for my 'narcolepsy', as dear therapist calls it. It has suddenly come again, and I am being treated with melatonin (over the counter, because it is not yet FDA approved). Hopefully, this doctor will agree with my theory about taking a stimulant during the day instead of just freaking sleeping pills that leave me dizzy and not-quite-with-it.
Updates will be coming soon after I see this doctor on Thursday.

All I can say is wow what a great job! The other half and I just got back from our friends house (well actually her friends house) and I needed a big break. I am working on a business project right now that is based on aarp hotel discount. I have literally been on-line for 4-5 hours doing research. Even though your blog really isn�t on the same page as aarp hotel discount I am certainly glad I came across your blog. There are a ton of great view points on this blog. Well I think I can here the kids screaming in the background. I put you in my internet favorites and I will certainly come back and visit. If you want to take a peek at my site you can find me here at http://www.savings-on-hotels.com/. I update my site very frequently. Again, great job blogging and I will be back again soon!

I am sorry to hear about Sky being sick, the drug investigation situation, your Dad's new home, and the return of your narcolepsy.
hang in there, hon! I am thinking of you and wishing you better days ahead.
