Bear with me while a whine a little. I have this ringing in my ears - I used to laugh at my mom when she said she heard crickets all the time. But the joke's on me because now I hear locusts. They say it can be caused by too much aspirin, etc., and since I take 4 Aleve each day for my knees, I decided to cut back. I was a little afraid of how much the pain would increase, but so far, so good. Pain is no worse, but locusts are still there. This has been the worst winter I've ever had for sickness. Seems like I have a cold or sore throat constantly. I'm blaming it on the lousy weather. Today the high is 52 degrees, tomorrow 28 degrees. Today - rain, tomorrow - snow. Jeez, it's no wonder I can't kick this nasty cold.
The last couple of weeks, I've been feeling a little out of sorts. I can't seem to put my finger on it. Maybe it's just a form of cabin fever. I have the kids at some point during each day Monday through Friday. Some days it's only 4 hours, other days it's 10 hours. So, on the weekends, I just want to stay home with Roddy. Every Friday I think I will get a lot accomplished, but usually I end up doing nothing but reading and playing games. Rod tells me I shouldn't feel guilty, but some weekends I do. The house is so cluttered with things we hate to throw away but are tired of looking at. This past weekend, we joked that we should buy a new house, move out what we want to keep, and leave the rest for the buyer. No, we're not buying a new house, but it was a thought. The sewing room isn't looking any better than it did. Once I'm back there I don't want to clean, I just want to sew. OK whining has come to an end.!!
