I am SO tired from this weekend. I did way too much, spent too much time around people and now I'm paying the price. I'm really tired and a bit low, but it's still better than last night was. I'm relieved because of that. I don't want to go through a whole day feeling like I did last night.

I'm being more careful about taking my medicines on time since it's important. I think a lot of my problem stems from letting the Ritalin in my system get too low. It takes a few days to build up to where it's supposed to be, and unless I take it like I'm supposed to I don't get the needed effect from it.

It's finally stopped raining this morning. The sun has come out some and everything looks so freshly green and glistening. Our ducklings and Mama are back, but sadly missing the smallest one. That really breaks my heart. I don't want to think of what could have happened to him. 🙁 He always stayed close to Mama and I think he knew he was behind the others all the time in growth. He felt vulnerable ~ well unfortunately he was. It makes me want to cry. I was silently rooting for him because he was the runt. Mama is starting the weaning process with them. She flies off quite often now but always comes back eventually. The ducklings seem to sense that it's okay. And here they're safe and always have plenty of food. I think when Mama finally does leave for good she intends to leave them here. Eventually the ducklings will grow up completely and probably head out themselves, but I find myself hoping one or two stay with us. I love watching them on the pond.

I'm trying to take it easy and relax today. I'm doing laundry and that's about it. I think because I'm still tired I'll probably take a nap soon, but other than that I don't have much for plans. I have to drop off my schedule at work and drop off my books at the library because they're due. But that will be a short trip and it will be over quickly. I'm going to wait until this load of clothes are dry so that I have something decent to wear out. Right now I'm in stretch yoga pants and a t-shirt that doesn't match at all. But I'm comfortable and that's what matters to me.

I'm disappointed because my paycheck tomorrow is going to be almost nothing. I only worked 3 and a half hours last week due to scheduling problems. They didn't have enough hours to really go around. But next week's paycheck should be really good since I put over 15 hours in. Tomorrow I go back to work and I'll be in floral processing the shipment of flowers that come in. But it's only a 4 hour shift, so I'll be okay.

Luckily my Mom is off tomorrow because this week the kids are on early release from school because they only have 3 days left. On Friday Aaron, Zach and I are going to go to Wet N Wild our last time on our passes this year because they expire this month. We'll have to do it again when we can afford it. Zach will be really excited that we're going, and I have to admit I'm looking forward to spending a day on water rides and being with my family having fun.

Aaron and I have decided this weekend we're going to have the boys take a break from hanging out together. They were getting on each other's nerves this weekend so they need some breathing room from one another. I think Mindy is finally going to take them to Toys R Us this week to pick out Legos that they can build together. I haven't told Zach in case she's still sick. She's been fighting with a sinus infection for over a week. I hope she gets better soon.

As for me, I seem to finally be over the chest infection I had. I can breathe again without it hurting me.

I'm really worried about my husband. He's still having pretty major stomach problems and he's going to the doctor this week. I hope they figure out what's wrong with him. He's lost almost 15 pounds in the last month from whatever is going on. He's happy to lose the weight, but I'm worried about why he's losing the weight so quickly. We weigh about the same thing now. That thought depresses me, lol.

Well, I'm going to go pamper myself. I'm hungry and I haven't eaten yet today, so I need to put something in my stomach. Maybe some raisin bran, yum!

The birds are happy being out on the porch today. It's nice and cool for now because of the rains this morning and it's still slightly overcast. I'm enjoying it myself ~ it was hot as hell on Friday and Saturday. We got a LOT of rain yesterday, but we needed it.

Okay, enough chit chat from my side ~ hope you all have a beautiful day and that you feel good. (((HUGS))) for free as always!
