Back to the regular routine after today. I helped my middle son move back into his dorm today since winter break is done for him. Why he brings so much home I will never know.
I took him to the orthodontist this morning. We found out he has a skeletal deformity in his top jaw that requires surgery to fix. But he doesn't need it to straighten his teeth. Nothing will get worse if he doesn't have it, just stay the same. It doesn't bother him except cosmetically. The physical side of it isn't bothering him. We left it up to him if he wants to do the surgery AND braces or just braces. The surgery scared him. He remembers when I had pallet surgery, he isn't in favor of the surgery. We told him to take his time making the decision. Either way we will support him.

My blood sugar has been difficult to control lately. I am really working hard on getting a handle on that. I feel like I am losing the battle but I am sure I have the strength to fight it even harder.

I have a lot on my mind. Natural concerns, just wish I didn't think about them. I try to push them way back in the back of my head until they are present concerns. But they are creeping into my every day thoughts. I tell myself...don't borrow trouble! UPBEAT...stay upbeat! POSITIVE stay positive.

I had a nice talk with my middle son today. Girl advice was wanted so I helped him try to understand a little better. And he told me going to a cabin, he was ok with now. I explained how I felt the cabin is a good compromise for everyone. He agreed, but emphasized hotel water parks are not something he likes. lol I told him I would continue to look for same thing (cabin) but new location.

I am very tired due to my blood sugar yo yo-ing. Making it easier on myself and dinner will be left overs and frozen left overs. Trying to clean out some things to make room for non holiday food.

    I'm glad you're so close to your boys. You seem to have a great rapport with them and it's awesome they come to you for advice! I hope my little one does that in the future. I hope that your blood sugar evens out here pretty soon. I bet that makes the day a little rougher. You are a fighter and i really like the " don't borrow trouble" phrase. I gotta remember that one.
    The cabin idea, by the way, sounds fantastic!
