My friend Cassie just started a blog, make sure you go over and check it out! She is cute and snarky, and fun to read.
I am tired of gardening! I have had it with tomatoes, especially the cherry ones. Next year, only one cherry tomato plant, only two zucchini (you have to have two, they cross pollinate), only one crook neck, and lots more beans! I don't feel like I got nearly enough beans this year. As much as I know I am going to miss all the fresh stuff in a few weeks, it is sooooooo much work! I am getting a little tired of it. All the work that has gone into it is the equivalent of a part time job.
Speaking of which, does anyone know where I can pick up one of those?
I have been spending a lot of time lately with my sister. I think our relationship is stronger now than it has ever been. We were very close as kids, but for a while there we didn't see each other much. I am glad that our relationship has matured, and that we can spend so much time together. She really is an amazing person and I love her to death!
I called my Doc. the other day and stated that I can't take it anymore! I have had it with this stupid medication. So we have moved up the date of my "little procedure", and all I can say is THANK HEAVENS! I just want this stuff to be over with and get my body back to normal. I have gained 10 pounds since going on this medication (that is in 4 months!), I am having almost constant hot flashes, I am grumpy as hell and won't mention the other side effects because TMI! I am not looking forward to being knocked out for it but I am looking forward to having it over. Did I mention my awesome sister? She is taking care of me the day I have this done! She volunteered, see I told you she was AWESOME!
My moms of autistics lunch is next week, and I am looking forward to it. I haven't seen these women for about 4 months now and I am excited to see what changes have happened. I love this group. The best thing about it is that it is the only group of people I know that completely understands everything about having an autistic kid. I sit there with them and think "everyone here knows exactly what I am dealing with". Some of us have it worse, and some better, but as the leader of the group Laura says, "we all have our poop stories". We all know what it is like to fight for our kids, we all know what it is like to cry because of our kids, and we all know what it is like to celebrate the little victories. They are an amazing group of women. We also have a district representative come the listen and help, so if there is anyone out there in Davis school district that feels you are not being listened to it is a good thing to attend. Want to know more just comment and I will send you the info.
Where were you and what were you doing on this day 8 years ago?
I was taking my kids to therapy. My husband was set to fly out to California at about 11 am. I hadn't turned on the TV because I had too much to do that morning. I got into the car and was pulling out of the neighborhood when I heard on the radio that the airports were closed. I turned back for home to tell my husband that he should go call the airline and find out if his flight was delayed. I spent the entire drive to Bountiful with my had over my mouth, crying the word NO! The rest of the day was spend huddled around the TV muttering exclamations of shock and horror!
So tell me what you did that day?
