…sitting here watching a Pileated Woodpecker fly from pine tree to tree and I am at peace looking at the beauty of the nature and the amazing colors on this bird.
It's hot and humid. Welcome to September. (sigh) Last night was refreshing though, we went to the last baseball game of the season and we got a good rainstorm and the temperature dropped down to 70 degrees ~ it was like heaven! It was worth the rain delay we had to sit through. And at the end they had an awesome fireworks show ~ Zach and Aaron and I loved it! AND our team won by 5 runs ~ wohoo!
So that's what I've been up to. Baseball, sleeping, trying to relax about everything and take time out for myself. I don't want to think, just lean back and enjoy being alive. I still get done what I need to, but I'm taking it easy.
The damned stomach bug finally finished with us ~ thank God! But last night Zachary started sounding hoarse, and this morning he has a very sore throat. Here we go again. I feel so bad for him ~ he just got over the tummy issues, and now we're possibly dealing with strep throat! If it's not better by Tuesday he's going to see the pediatrician. He'll hate me for it because he can't stand it when his doctor has to swab his throat (we have to hold him down and he cries afterwards) 🙁 But it has to be done. I'm not going to tell him that this is what will happen ~ he'll freak out all the way there and the whole time we're in the room until its over with. I'm just hoping that strep throat isn't the problem and that he'll be able to go back to school on Tuesday.
I'm so proud of my son ~ we started buying him chapter books last week, and he read an entire one in 2 days! It was 100 pages long, and he was so engrossed in it that it was all he did most of the day when he had free time. He's really learning to enjoy the world of books and escaping into them when he's bored. He's definitely his mother's son!
Today we have to do some minor grocery shopping, but then we're going to come home and continue to take it easy. I'm bored, this is weekend number 4 of not being able to go anywhere because somebody is sick and I'm going stir crazy! I have to find something to amuse myself today…
On a good note, my new fish Rajah is doing much better! He's happy and healthy. Turns out that the people who sold him to me are idiots! They told me not to feed him but every 2-3 days, and when he got really bad on day 3 as a last ditch effort to save him I tried feeding him… He went nuts! Forget what the people said about feeding him ~ they were telling me to starve the poor guy! Jerks! So now he's a happy fishy, which makes me happy.
As for my last blog, thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you that responded. It really helped me feel better about how I was feeling and reminded me that it was just a rough time I was going through and feeling very alone. I try so hard to be supportive to all of you, but I'm human and sometimes I just don't have enough in me to try to take care of everybody and let them know I'm thinking of them. I wish I could, but I do have to take care of me first and I haven't been doing that. Thank you for the support and the encouraging words.
Well, I have to get dressed and go grocery shopping. Yaaay. (Not!) Have a great Sunday and Labor Day if I don't stop in tomorrow. Love you all! ((((HUGS))))
Let's hope the peace and boredom will last for awhile.
