Friday, still sewing

     I slept much better last night but I also went back to double meds yesterday.  So it looks like that is the story for a while or maybe permanently.  Drat!  I am blessed to have medications that control this so I should be grateful.  Severe night sweats are a sure sign of active disease.  I have had blood work every two weeks and meds were reduced because of SED rates going down right after the Wedding, but now are climbing again.  It is a question of what I can tolerate, no sleep?  OR the constant headache I have when I take the drugs.  I feel like my eyes are going to pop out.

     I worked my kids hard last night and I think things are coming together.  Still have much to do but this to will pass.  I am going to get military uniforms in because of the big Christmas ball and of course we all know how much I love those.  Soldiers and Nutcracker must go together.

     Hub's and I have been living off chicken all week so I may get him to take me out tonight.  I am in rehearsal all day again tomorrow.  Finally got the kitchen cleaned up, now need to get the laundry done. I miss my mom and so does Hubby, he said she was a soft presence in the house.  A soft presence, never thought of her as soft.

     We have had a problem with mice since the bad fires and we have set out traps and finally poison.  Now I smell a dead mouse downstairs and one upstairs.  Of course I don't know where they are and I don't really want to look for them either.  It is just gross.  They are supposed to go outside and die the little ingrates.

I have so much to do before I hit the studio so I had better get busy.

Have a great and productive day!



  1. Does the doctor know about the night sweats? It's nice your husband misses your mother, very sweet. I resorted to poison and the vermin don't care where they die, ruining where they pick as their final resting place. Most likely, though, they have run as far as they can.

  2. YES to eating out :) I caught a mouse in a trap last summer, thankfully it was dead but I still found it horrifying to have to dispose of the dead mouse - I felt so bad that I had killed it.

  3. It is hard to have so much to do while being sick. Keep your chin up.
