Well, TJ's teachers e-mailed me and said he could use his sod house for his STEM grade. He can either finish it with its summary or he could finish it for extra credit and do the barn for his grade. Since he loves the building part, we are going to finish it he will do his summary and we will build the 16 sided barn just for fun. I am glad they saw it wasn't fair to him, just because he got started early.
My aunt will be here tomorrow and I have clothes to put away on the rocker. I have one load in the dryer and luckily, my other sheet set is clean so I don't have to wash the sheets on my bed. As soon as I get up tomorrow, I'll re-make the bed with the clean sheets for her. We have done NOTHING else on the house for like two weeks. Either Mom has a problem with one of her many health issues or there is some doctor appointment, clinic class, etc. Its getting frustrating even though its nobody's fault.
Our floor still isn't here. I figure with the way Murphy has been hanging around that it will come in tomorrow about the same time as my aunt's plane! I know we will moving in June, so at least we won't pay rent here but one more time. Paying bills here and there has been real fun. I look around and we are just so crowded. I have to move a box off the washer to fill it with laundry and I have to move his sod house off the dryer to move the box over. The counter where we fix meals is filled with bread, chips, oats, etc. We just don't have any room to put things away properly. Our house not only has tons of cabinets, we have a real pantry!
I think Mom and Dad are going to Home Depot after her nap to get the paint they are going to give us. I have no clue what good that is going to do when we really don't want to re-paint everything. I still need to re-paint TJ's room since it was mine and green. Plus, my aunt's room still has bleed through after about four coats. Not to mention re-painting the living room that has bleed through after two coats. Ugh, and finishing the school room. That one hasn't even been cut in yet and will most likely need touched up as well. However, as I moved his sod house yet another time to get to the laundry, I daydreamed about an entire room where he could have all his school stuff and it wouldn't be on my washer and dryer!
Dad's sugar is sky high because he had diabetic class yesterday and had to leave at six am, too early to do his insulin. It was still around 300 by dinner and this morning was like 250 something. The insulin today should settle it back out. He could have had it last night, but we changed it from evenings because it would dump him too low. Mornings seem to work better. I finally bought Mom another bottle of that neuropathy stuff yesterday at CVS. She didn't want to pay the $30 but I couldn't stand her being in so much pain again. Some really nice girl is sending me a couple of free bottles but this will help till they get here.
I have seen all the info about different vitamins that help but when I read further, Mom can't take them because of either a medication she is on or another health problem she has. I hope she discusses some meds with her doctor next appointment because she can't go on like this. The Cymbalta was making a HUGE difference. Unfortunately, its a choice of her eyes or her feet and she doesn't want to chance losing her vision. I can't blame her for that one but its really hard to see her in so much pain.
She's too funny though. Every day she asks me if I have blogged again yet because she reads these and the comments. She complained last night because there was no new blog post to read! So, hi Mom! (:
