Rainy day here, nothing major, just an on & off drizzle.
It's parent teacher conference time, so after having yesterday off, Joyanna went in at 12:30 today, same tomorrow, and Friday they get out at noon. Seems like we used to just have conferences in the evening... and when I taught a couple decades ago, teachers were expected to just put in those extra hours, part of the job. I think the main reason teachers need all the extra "teacher work days" etc. is because they have so blinkin' much paperwork these days... instead of giving the teachers non-instructional time, maybe we need to find some commonsense ways to reduce that paperwork load, instead.
Joyanna checked out OK at the doctor's yesterday, going to add a daily allergy pill and keep doing what we're doing to reduce the chance of constipation, see if that means fewer headaches & tummy aches.

Need to calm down.
Asthma medicines and stress are a really bad combination.
Breathing is worse. I couldn't stand up straight when I woke up ... a combination of moving and the dreadful mattress. I am almost out of back pills, no refills. Doctor won't call any in. Finding new doctor after the move and making do until then.
Joe is a good friend and the only person helping me. However, I can't wait to be living on my own in a smoke free, mold free home. to wake I had really important letters and emails to write this morning. Done. I set an alarm before he woke to try to be able to work in peace - he never shuts up but can't hear unless you scream into his ear less than a foot away. The house is so hot I am getting heat stroke - 85 degrees!!! I have the window open and door closed in the guest room while I work. What a relief.
I had to bite my tongue helping him do a silly thing on his computer while he blew smoke in my face. I have an oxygen tube in my nose for goodness sakes! I have very important things to do and no patience. This is my only friend and only person helping me.
Andi, if Joe is such a good friend, he'd probably be okay with not smoking when you are sitting so close to him. Please try smiling sweetly and asking him.
Thankfully it's only a short wait now. I wish I could be there to watch you sitting comfortably and breathing easily with Winston the pug sleeping and snoring at your side in your cozy new apartment. I can imagine it. The lights are softly lit. Your head is tilted back and your eyes are closed. I think I hear some mellow music in the background. Is it classical? And there's a book lying open on your afghan covered lap. You must have dozed off while reading. Winston the pug's belly is full and he is contentedly dreaming of gloating over Hershey, because he has you all to himself again. All is well in his life. And you are slowly healing.
Thanks for all the concern and prayers. We know that God does answer prayer in His time and not always in ours. I tend to get impatient at times and God has to remind me who is in charge.
We heard from our dear son-in-love tonight and dear daughter is still having problems that we are concerned about. She has a doctor's appointment within the next day or two. I forget exactly which day he told him. She is having trouble releasing water when she needs to and there is no infection. The fibroid is pushing against where it should not and of course sweet baby is in there, too. The doctor told her that they would keep a watch on the situation and it should reposition soon, she hopes. We have heard of no further bleeding or cramping. She has to be tested again to see where the progesterone level is now. Please continue to pray and trust with us that all will go as God intends. We naturally want the best for her and the baby.
