That was fun, too!

What a great time we had visiting DisneyWorld and seeing Drew, Dez, Kristin and the rest of her family.  It was just a whirlwind of a time, and unfortunately poor Dez had bronchitis and was none to happy about it, but all in all I think it was great to be able to spend time with them, watch them interact, get to know Dez a little bit and simply enjoy!  Two days is definitely not enough time, but I’m glad we were able to go, and we’ll definitely go back at some point.  It’s only an hour and a half from home, we have someone to watch Sadie when necessary,  and you get lots of exercise!  We must have walked a hundred miles!  (Well, it sure seemed like it.)

2012. What the hell?

January 4th, 2012. Some thoughts:  The last few days have been sheer misery both for me AND for Tom. I didn’t know what was going on with me; I only knew that I was more irritable than ever, I didn’t want to do anything, I couldn’t sleep, everything set me off, I could cry at the drop of a hat, and I wanted to snap and swear at the world around me.

Then I had the sudden realization that I’d run out of my hormone medication and stopped taking it.  I chose not to stay on it for a number of reasons, but mainly because I don’t currently have insurance, and I didn’t want to find a doc and go through all that just to get something I could probably do without.  I started doing some reading, and then last evening Kathy Gay and I found a great natural food store where I got some great advice for what I should be taking to calm and alleviate these symptoms. I’m actually finally hopeful that I may turn a corner on these awful and scary feelings I have been having.  Time will tell.
