This is the fourth time I have started this post. With a whole lot of randomness swirling around in my larger than average noggin (saying nothing about my brain size - I do truly have a big head), I can't seem to put anything together. So here is the randomness as it comes:

*My head hurts and it sucks. There are no painkillers I feel comfortable taking as they ALL interact with one of the two meds I am on. If there is no other motivation for me to attempt to get my blood sugar and blood pressure normalized, the fact that I would love an ibuprofen and a swig of Mylanta is enough.

*I sure hate the fact that my grandma is in the hospital in Casper and I am here and my mom is in Arkansas.

*I wish my house was clean. A dust bunny fell out of the (indoor) sky last night. Getting rid of the interim housecleaner was a bad idea. I am going to call her and beg her to come rescue us before we are buried under piles of gunk that should be in my vacuum canister.

*I will continue to be aggravated by the people in the school drop off line. I should be able to come to terms with the fact that it becomes only a minor inconvenience to me when people want to act like their kid is going to perish if they don't get out under the awning (even on sunny days), but I just can't.

*My life would be much more peaceful if I did a serious purge of some Facebook "friends", but I just can't do it. I like to think it is just because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but it is much more likely that I am just a weenie.

*I am concerned that my kids are going to develop some sort of horrid affliction from watching too much television.

*I really want to eat an egg roll, some wontons and 40 million crab rangoon right now. This diabetes crap really sucks.

*I am so tired. I would like to curl up in a sunny spot on the carpet and sleep for three days.

Wow...not much in that brain worth mulling over at the moment!

For the Longest Time...

Ahhhh...Billy Joel...Takes me back...

Anyway, the last month has been busy, busy and I have no idea really what I have been doing. Without referring back to my calendar to refresh my memory, I am hard pressed to guess where my time has gone.

Girl Scout cookie season has officially ended. I managed to get 1500 boxes of cookies distributed to the girls in the troop and then get money turned in for those 1500 boxes. having that finished almost feels like winning the lottery. But without the influx of millions of dollars, unfortunately.

Bryn and I went and saw "Shrek: The Musical". It was a lot of fun and reminded me that I don't get out enough for "girl time" with Bryn.

We have had enough snow to last for a few years, I think. Bryn has been out of school for at least 7 or 8 snow days since Christmas and although shoveling the driveway is fine exercise, I am about over it. Putting that pool in just in time to close it up for the winter has been a form of torture for us - let's get to swimming weather already!

Went to Chicago to visit Grandma and Grandpa with Nicole and Jeremiah. It was a quick trip, but we had a good time.

I have spent lots of time testing my blood sugar and learning about diabetes. Not exactly good times, but I am adjusting.

Time flies. I keep thinking I need to slow down and savor, but who the heck has time?
