I don’t really have much news to post but appreciate the well wishes and prayers. I’d called my mother a few times yesterday before leaving work and the last time I spoke to her she said she’d call me as soon as she knew when and where Grandmother was being moved to but I have not heard from her since. It’s possible they moved her during the night so I’m going to give her time to be up and around before calling this morning.
Yesterday was “busy from Hades” and then some. On the way home my windshield was cracked by an unseen object coming from — where, I have no idea. There were no cars directly in front of me at the time, so I can only assume that it was from the other side of the interstate. What pissed me off was that it is too large to be filled in and the windshield will have to be replaced altogether. I know my insurance will cover it, but it’s a hassle I didn’t need right now. This happened on my way to get several errands run late yesterday afternoon. I had a doctor’s appointment and several other things I had to have taken care of. I had a hair appointment last night and chopped my hair off — well, to me “chopped off” means shoulder length. It was well down my back and as much as 6 inches was taken off in some places. So now it’s a little more evened out and the top layers are a bit chunked. I really like it, but I think Jodi (the lady who cut my hair) wasn’t so sure about cutting that much off me, LOL.
Anyways, I get in last night and, Jess was squalling … she had closed the car door on her hand yesterday. I’m constantly on her to watch what she’s doing and where she’s going because she’s “almost” always about to hurt herself on something. Well, yesterday she learned the hard way. I put an ice pack on it and checked her fingers. There’s a LOT of bruising and it’s swollen (HUGE!) but she says that it doesn’t hurt and I don’t think anything’s broken. We’ll have to keep an eye on it over the next few days to be sure.
My dress fitting is today. We didn’t get to go see Jim’s brother last night, which is probably good because I was an emotional wreck last night and I don’t think I could have taken his kids for more than 30 seconds (I know that sounds horrible, but they ARE good kids, they just need disciplined BADLY!!). We’ll probably swing by there this afternoon. I’m hoping by then I’ll have heard something from my mother about Grandmother.
I’m supposed to start work on my side project today, but I don’t know yet if that’s going to happen. It’s a website for a client I’ve done business with in the past, nothing hard but a lot of coding involved. We need the money, and I need the distraction but I honestly don’t have the energy or the desire to get started on it right now. I’ve started having trouble sleeping again and have been having weird dreams, from one the other night about being back in high school, to another weird one with puppies and fishes, to one last night about me and Jim’s ex getting into it and I decided to take it out on her truck by taking it apart and throwing her truck toolbox into the yard. (I’m sure that felt very gratifying)
Anyways … I know it’s all stress. I’ve just got to find more “me time” and make more time for my outlets because if I don’t, it’s going to start getting to me again. I’m just now starting to get my headaches to go away … I can’t have them coming back.
