It's one of THOSE nights ~ the kind where you wake up at 1 a.m. and find that you can't go back to sleep. It's now after 4 a.m. and I'm still wandering around in the dark house but mostly sitting out on the porch. I had the lights off for quite awhile but decided to turn them on because of the storm-lines passing through. That and I think our rat friend has been scurrying around here for awhile with me sitting here, which kind of gives me the heebegeebees. I hate when something can see mebut I can't see it!
I'm in a much better frame of mind than I was when I wrote my last blog about Social Security screwing me over. Thank you to so many people who urged me to fight on. I think I will, this time with a lawyer. I'll go to appeals court and show them myself. Maybe for them seeing is believing.
I'm a little concerned about my mental state right now, it kind of feels like hypomania is coming on. While I wouldn't mind an upswing in mood, I don't want the troubles that go with it. I think I'm going to force myself to lie down again here soon and try to make myself sleep on the couch.
I was so upset about the whole disability issue that I forgot to mention Zach lost another tooth yesterday! I love playing tooth fairy…I get to watch his sweet sleeping face as I exchange money for pieces of his childhood. It's kind of bittersweet. For him he's just glad that it finally popped out ~ it was really bugging him for a couple of days there.
It's raining again. That mass of junk in the gulf turned into our first tropical storm of the year ~ I think it's named Andrea. Even with it still out in the gulf we're getting rain bands and winds from it, though mild right now. As the day progresses it's supposed to get worse. I hope the camp doesn't cancel the kids' field trip today because of it. 🙁 Zachary would be really disappointed.
I hope this year doesn't turn out to be one of the years that's full of big hurricanes. If they're a category 2 and under we'll be okay, but 3 and up we should leave for. They get pretty vicious. I'm sure many people remember what Homestead, FL looked like after that massive hurricane hit ~ there were no houses, just concrete slabs and a lot of debris. I am praying another one like that doesn't come any time in the near future.
Well, time to make myself go take a nap on the couch if I can. My husband will be up in an hour and a half and my mom should be up any minute now to get ready for work. Maybe I'll have some coffee with her first. 🙂
I'm sure I'll blog later again today…sorry, I'm a blogaholic!
