Hi everyone! My kids had a great first day at school yesterday, but what happened on the way home wasn’t so wonderful. We stopped off at the store so I could grab a few things and my 12 year old son (who is already taller than me) decides to use my front windshield to help him push his shoe onto his foot (I was already out of the car).
A big spiderweb of cracks broke out onto the windshield and he was so sad and worried when he told me. I couldn’t even get mad I felt so bad for him. So today they came out to put another windshield in to the tune of $340. Secretly, I’m kind of glad – my old one always had some sort of cloudy appearance and it whistled in the rain. LOL!
My sneaky little Scarlett scolded her big brother and said, “Why did you TELL her?” As if I wouldn’t notice the big spiderweb of cracks right in front of me. LOL! She cracks me up. She told me who she felt would be a problem child in her class yesterday and she was very annoyed because he rudely interrupted the teacher who, in her words, “studied for like 10 years to learn how to teach us!” She hates for the teacher to feel unloved and that’s what talkers do (she would have hated me in class – I couldn’t shut up).
Yesterday, in addition to not getting all my cleaning and Me stuff done, I also didn’t get my Branding or Fiction tasks done. But otherwise, I accomplished a lot. What I did today is start with the stuff I didn’t get done yesterday and then moved through the calendar sheets as normal.
I’m a little distracted. Tomorrow is my doctor’s appointment and now I want to be like an ostrich and stick my head in the sand and not find out any bad news. Something’s definitely not right, but I pray it’s something minor. Of course what’s worse is I found a link to a young man aged 28 who posted his final farewell yesterday after a long battle with cancer. UGH why did I have to see that? It was on a news website so of course I click.
Immediately, I begin the movie reel in my head of what my “final farewell” video blog would say. I start planning to do a whole series of vlogs for my children if I get bad news tomorrow – see how I work myself into a frenzy? At least it’s early in the day (10 AM) so I’ll get it over with fast. I hate not knowing if tomorrow will be a relief, devastating, or more “wait and see the unknown” stuff.
Oh good gosh I had to come update this post because it’s 6 PM and I am getting everything prepared for the doctor’s tomorrow and I brought out my last 2 years’ lab sheets from my doctor’s and I see something that says >59 and a note about CKD etc. I go Googling while on the phone with my sister Jeni – she tries to BEAT me to Google. I’m telling her LESS than 59.
She says, “Send me a pic of the lab sheet.” So being the teacher that she is, she corrects me and says, “Tiffany! That’s GREATER than! Remember the PacMan!” LOL! So she walks me off THAT ledge. I laughed and told her I’d already diagnosed myself in 5 seconds flat thanks to Dr. Google with Chronic Kidney Disease. She laughed and said, “I know you had!!”
One good thing to come of all this is my intake of Cokes has dropped drastically. I’m at like 1/2 a Coke every OTHER day. I was living on them previously. I’m all about water and 1 cup of milk now. Just used to it. So that’s good.
Well, I’m sure I’ll blog tomorrow about what I find out. Pray for me – and if you don’t pray, cross your fingers and toes at 10:15 AM Central Standard time for me. LOL! Maybe if we all speak at once it’ll work, you think?
