Random bits of blubbering (or "poor me")

My dad's been having some ups and downs with the lapband--some days are good, some days are bad, and some days just scare the crap out of me.

I am sick, my first cold of the season, and have lots of work to do before October. I freelance to help make ends meet, but my contributions are eaten away by medical expenses, and the debt is still accumulating like an infection under the skin. I often think I should return to work fulltime, but there is too much to love and manage here at home. And financially, it wouldn't make much sense in the long run, at least not right now

It has not been a pleasant return to school for Bubba. Moose is adjusting to going to preschool in the mornings, but I am not adjusting to his return in the afternoons. It appears I will have two children that try to hold it together at school and then let it all out (ALL of it) when they get home.

But we got a kitty, and that makes me happy. Bubba named her Silly Sally. Hubby is allergic, but he only has a reaction (itchy nose, watery eyes) about once a week, so I think he may let us keep her.

I have posts started about all of this, but just haven't had the energy, motivation, or desire to complete them.

For now, watch this, and know that if an eighth grader can figure this out, so can you.

Glad Silly Sally is making you happy especially as your not well.
Hope the kids settle down?! (well one can hope!)
