It’s been windy and alternating between cloudy and sunny. The temperature has dropped … it’s still hot, but it’s a far cry from the mid 90’s we saw on our way home from church this morning. We’re supposed to have rain today, but so far it’s been going all around us. We haven’t had rain in 6 weeks, so we could definitely use some.
Something has been digging in our landscaping mulch again … this time, whatever it is has gotten serious … digging deeper, bigger “holes” … exposing parts of the roots of some of my plants. <grrrr>
T#1’s team lost the first round of the playoffs/tournament last night. They just were not hitting … I don’t know if it was the stress from having strikes called (during the regular season, they only call strikes on swings and misses), from falling behind early in the game, the heat or what. They had several injuries, including 3 players (of whom T#1 was one) who had to leave the field for a time. Sure, it would have been wonderful to see them advance … but they had a pretty good “regular season” and hopefully had a good time playing.
I was chopping a watermelon yesterday afternoon and sliced into my pinkie finger (fleshy part of the tip and middle parts). It wasn’t a deep cut … but it did bleed quite a bit. The worst part of it was that the watermelon wasn’t very good at all.
Am I the only one who’s had times where I felt left out, like chopped liver … even though I know that’s not the case?
T#3 is the one with the double ear infections this time … and from DD’s report, T#4 isn’t far behind from a similar diagnosis. Those poor little ones. T#4 is getting a referral to a pediatric ENT … hopefully they’ll be able to get this resolved.
Tomorrow is the funeral for my friend from work.
This lying in bed for 2-3 hours before I can fall asleep is getting old. It’s like my mind just won’t stop working … it’s not like I’m laying awake worrying … I just can’t stop thinking about whatever comes to my mind. I don’t want to take any medical sleep aids if I can help it (if for no other reason than I get up early enough in the morning that by the time I realize that I need to take something, I’m not going to have the 7-8 hours they recommend). DD’s previous pediatrician recommended melatonin for the Ts … wonder if that will work for Nana, too?
