The Weather Channel keeps saying that summer is finally arriving today here in the upper Midwest. We are expecting a temperature of 94 with high humidity making it feel like it is over 100. This is not my idea of summer.
Anyone else trying not to panic over all the swine flu talk? I don't understand it all, just know I would not~ could not~ take the vaccine, and hope and pray I can avoid getting the flu.
Ever feel like you have been floating on a river, hit unexpected rapids, and can't seem to get yourself back to calm waters. I get right to the edge and a deep current sucks me back into rough waters. This week it was the worst bone and muscle pain in at least 7 yrs. Could not sleep, and could not lay still for more than a half hour without every part of my body feeling like it was being crushed. Lyme still has the ability to surprise me and bring me back into the trenches. It's hard not to retreat and wave the white flag of surrender.
Joel looked into early retirement this past week. Can't afford it. We are actually talking about him working 3/4 time if he has to continue to commute. For over 41 yrs. I have moved around the country and across the world with this man, with around 24 moves within that time. This is the only move that I wish had never happened. I wish I could wave a magic wand and have it go away. I don't want to spend the next 3 yrs like the last 3 ~ Okay, I have had my pity party, and now I am moving on....God will work it ALL out He just has not let me in on the plan yet.
Laurel has a very insightful post entitled, A Personal Lesson in Humility, which you can read at her blog Dreams At Stake.
I watched the silly show Psych on the USA channel last night. I have no clue why I like this show, but it makes me laugh outloud. Anything that makes me laugh is a good thing. I wish Laverne and Shirley reruns were on again ~another show that makes me laugh. Also I like to watch the British show As Time Goes By with Dame Judy Dench. Laughter is good for the soul.
Sue Henry is my latest author of choice for light fiction that does not need alot of brain matter to read... just enjoyed. Her mysteries with either Jessie Arnold or Maxie and Stretch are great. I also like Joanne Fluke's mysteries about Hannah Swenson, from Minnesota ;-). All the towns she talks about are very familiar to me.
My mind is a bit blank today, so I am off to my sofa, a good nap, and prep time for our LLMD appt. on Monday. Should be interesting, and spendy.
