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!

I think many of us feel like we are in the home stretch of winter. We are almost to the finish line. Spring is around the corner.

The turtledoves have come back in our neighborhood. Hearing them gave me renewed energy.

Well, I disagree about your brain not having much worth mulling over!

I'm so sorry about your headaches, Kara! :( Sounds truly awful. And I'm also very sorry about your Grandma--I do hope she's going to be okay!

And I say "Go for it!" when it comes to the Facebook purge. I mean I understand what you mean about not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings and about being a weenie (as it really would be a combination of the two for me), but at the same time I just think life is too short to subject yourself to things that raise the blood pressure on a regular basis. (Of course, this probably means hiding from most of the world...) Sometimes I'm pretty sure it's a good thing that I forget to ever even check out what's going on on facebook, huh?

And Kara---how was Bryn's birthday???? OMG, I feel like such a jerk for just remembering it just this very minute. :( I hope she had a wonderful, wonderful day!!!!

Anyway, I'll finally shut up. :P Well, after I tell you that I hope you're feeling better, and feeling refreshed very soon!!!

(Oh, and if you click on my name you'll see I'm back to blogging at blogger. I didn't totally quit tumblr but I got frustrated that people who didn't have an account couldn't comment. Yes, I am so ridiculously fickle!)

I really am sorry about your Grandma, must feel very helpless to have her so far away. I am also sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well. I know we are both control freaks so to have to deal with diabetes has to be so frustrating.
I won't be too offended if you unfriend me on FB, only a little:o) I really do enjoy your thoughts and commentary. We certainly see many things differently, but I am okay with that. Respectful, well thought out discussion is always a good thing.
If you think pick up is bad at Genesis, your head would spin at drop off and pick up at TES! Mine has a few times!
Have a good night!

Sounds like you need to be able to do something for YOU. You're invested in everyone else, why not take a little time for you? I like putting some relaxing music, laying down on the sofa and relaxing for 30 minutes when the day gets to be too much, which is frequently does.
