That's still how I'm managing to function. Being alone to do it is HARD. Hubs should be here sometime tomorrow, though. I found someone to groom the little dog for a reasonable price, and I don't have to keep hunting for the shot records. ... Read more

That's how I'm feeling today. My sister had asked me to pick out the obituary photo. With the people in mom's complex having the nerve to already ask YESTERDAY if they could have her things, on top of the physical exhaustion from a week of less ... Read more

My mom is still choosing to make drama, deliberately endanger herself for attention, being manipulative, and being mean. I am choosing to put myself, my health, and my sanity above her drama. Which, according to her, makes ME a bad p... Read more

My youngest niece called last night and asked me to come to ohio. She's scared and worried. I've always told her I would be there when she needs me. So I got up at 4am and drove 600 miles. Mom's not doing well, so I will be here for a whil... Read more

My hands have been bothering me all day. I just don't feel like trying to type, so the mama drama episode is going to have to wait until I get the pain back under control. Have a great weekend. ... Read more

But things are looking up. The scale still says under 350, so I'm good there. I got my assignment done tuesday with help from the tutor, so that was good. (instructor still hasn't graded it, though). I'm actually getting the hang of some of it,... Read more

It started out decent this morning, and I was feeling a little better. Finally got official notices that both of my credentials will be issued at graduation. I'd been waiting for over a month for my graduation application approval. That helped ... Read more
