*Winter break has come and gone. It was not quite the relaxing week I'd imagined. High highs and low lows. The highs were freakin' awesome and the lows sucked royally. Duh. We took the kiddos to my parents on Sunday. Monday morning Rich and I took off for what was to be 3 days and 3 nights to ourselves. But Tuesday, Gray had the meltdown to beat all meltdowns, and Rich ended up driving all the way back to pick up the kids...our vacation cut to one day and one night. Then Wednesday, while we were out taking Gray to a "you're in luck, I had a cancellation" doctor's appointment, Annie called to inform us that the toilet had overflowed. This not only made a mess of the bathroom, but proceeded to make its way to the basement soaking my sewing machine and a table full of fabric for various projects. (Good news: Sewing machine appears to be okay after drying out. *fingers crossed*)
Look--I made a bar graph:
*Welp, I turned 49 on Thursday. And I'm still determined to make this year one of the best of my life! Fibro--you will not get the better of me! Nor will you, Anxiety!)
*I know I've said it a gazillion times, but I *love* the view out our bedroom window!!! Of course, that is about to change as they're building a subdivision behind our little swamp. :( :( :( But dwelling on the positive--for now I LOVE IT! Just this morning, I got to watch a herd of 8 deer browsing, our rascally suet feeder obsessed little squirrel, geese on the frozen swamp, and quite a variety of other birds.
*I fear I'm not going to finish The Shining by the end of the month. I must learn to accept the fact that I suck at read-alongs...please remind me of this when I'm tempted to join another one, okay? You know, like when the #domealong comes around. No Debi, no.
Okay, I guess that's enough procrastinating for one morning...
