Back to being a blog slacker....

Ok, another week and ALOT has happened. Where do I begin!!

Last Sat was a nice day....we went prom gown shopping with my honey's daughter. She is a senior like my son and I never ever imagined I would get to go prom dress shopping. Wow it was really a nice thing for her to ask me to go with her. She actually insisted on waiting until I was finished my parenting class so I could go, she is beautiful and the dress and shoes she found were just wonderful, she will be a vision on her prom.

Sunday we were busy getting ready for the flea market this weekend. It was mother's day and my birthday to boot, my sweetie really did me right with all the thoughtful gifts and made me feel like the most special person in the whole world (which rarely happened in previous relationships) so even though my son made me totally cranky it was a great day.

Then the migraine came, on with a vengeance, Sunday night into Monday. I actually got sick from it that is how bad it was. DS2 was back at the doc's too, his meds were done and the rash was still spreading. I think this time the increased dosage for longer is going to do the trick!! yeah

Tuesday back at work and busy, busy, busy. Alot of great and interesting things going on and I'm right in the midst of it all. My boss complimented me on how well I keep it together and cool under all the stress and pressure of the changes going on. Yeah for me, now if I could get him to translate that into a raise, I'd be in seventh heaven.

Today, Mike called and asked me to call his daughter 911. I called, got her voicemail. She called back. Thank god I was sitting because it was the news every parent dreads hearing from their 18 year old. She's pregnant. She hasn't told her father. I know and he doesn't. I vowed to keep the secret but only until sat, I told her she must come over and we will all sit down and talk about it and her plans. As of right now she plans on giving the baby up for adoption. It's going to be one of the roughest days of his life, and i know he already suspects it, but it's the whole coming out with it.

My son who has prom tomorrow is NOT coming home to see me prior to it, I'm devastasted. My feelings are hurt beyond repair, but there is nothing I can do about it. I'm going to try and get to the gf's house prior to them leaving so I can snap a few shots, otherwise I won't see them at all. I think this was just another stab at me for all the change I've brought in his life this year and well to be honest I'm not happy. His father is coming to talk about his actions, lack of helping around the house, etc tonight should be interesting. In fact he should be here soon. So I need to close this now.

I have a long weekend ahead of me. Lots of things to do and hopefully some sleep in there too.

I missed catching up on everyone again this week...hopefully one day my life will slow down enough....

I am so tired

This burning the candle on both ends is catching up with me. Last night I had my annual mammogram. Last year I had the scare, in there twice and now just to monitor, well I have to say the place was the MOST unorganized since I've been there, but they have my history and to move it all now ugh. So after a two hour wait the girl from the front desk says you can wait another 45 minute (which will be 8pm) or we can mail your results, I was out, I was literally shaking from not having eaten in hours and was feeling very tired and nervous. So needless to say I don't know how my mammo turned out :(

I haven't been exercising either :( This is very bad and messes with my emotional happiness I've noticed when I don't, today, lunch, yoga.....I have to!!

Waiting on the weekend, busy one at that, our last weekend to get the flea market stuff ready and it's Mother's day along with my bday (44 yikes) I definitely don't feel 44 but wow, I was told by my guy no purchases of anything unless it's food until Monday, may 12th. I wonder what he has up his sleeve.

Oh and my oldest ds took off work on Sunday to spend the day with his mama, this is a real treat as he usually works every weekend and I never see him unless I pop in and see him sleeping. He has something planned also.....

Should be a busy but nice one, showery to day and tomorrow then beautiful cooler weekend in store.

Cinco de Mayo

Is a busy time for us. ....we celebrated the Kentucky Derby Sat with work, an all weekend long celebration of cinco de mayo and what did I do...had a parenting class on Sat and tended a sick child the rest of the weekend. Not my own but his daughter who is suffering from bad migraine headaches, so bad they made her sick and puke all weekend. Poor girl.

Other than that we had another fabulous weekend, getting ready for a big flea market with tons and tons of stuff to sell. We've priced and packed numerous things and still have quite a bit to go through. All in all it should be a great sale....

Weight - same
exercise - lacking a bit here but still going strong
outlook - fantastic

Tonight I've had quite a few nosebleeds, bad ones like I had when ds2 was born....been feeling quite rough but i will survive as always

Speaking of ds2 had to get him to the doctor today with an unknown rash/skin something all over his body. Turned out his allergies are expressing themselves through his skin instead of sniffling, sneezing or watery eyes. So the doc prescribed cortizone zpak and some antihistimine rx and he should be good.

Me, I'm day 4 straight of having hot flashes. I think the milestone of turning 44 is called premenopause and I'm feeling the side effects of it hot and heavy, no pun intended. In fact I'm starting another hot flash as we with all that lovely visual I'm off to catch up on some of my shows I've been missing.

This week is the grand finale of Survivor and I have to say I'm glad someone finally played the immunity idol they found!! Yeah Amanda....
