What a weekend

Sunday, February 28, 2021

We had both of my GSs here Friday night and part of Saturday. The youngest had a meltdown in the early hours if Saturday morning but my son managed to get him to sleep finally. He went home Saturday afternoon late after his parents got back from their errands. The oldest stayed last night. I played video games with him and we watched a show of his choosing last night. I rarely have a problem with him. The youngest GS is the challenge. My stress levels have been through the roof this weekend too. Plus the heavy rain falling since yesterday. It's been raining since Friday and still coming down so there wasn't any outdoor activities we could do. Tge youngest insisted on play video games with bright flashing lights and keeping the volume up. Finally got him settled with his hand held game. Finally my son and oldest GS got me to play and older video game with them. Needless to say I have had a headache or much worse, a migraine since Friday. All is quite now. I have a live cam on YouTube of an eagles nest. Just chilling out and trying to destress. The heating pad on my neck, shoulders and back. My stove didn't get delivered today because the delivery guy was out sick which was fine with me. Instead Friday will be stressful because they're going to deliver it them. Before my retina specialist appointment. I was totally exhausted today. Because I've been reorganizing the kitchen, plus moving stuff for the stove delivery. I need to unload the dish and put the dirty dishes in. I took my lesser used broiler pans and my roasting pan out of the drawer in the oven and washed them so I wouldn't forget them. Now to find places for them temporarily. I bought me a new food processor. I had one years ago that was given to me but I decided I needed something to help with grating and cutting, slicing up vegetables and cheeses. My shoulders can't handle that any more. So there are things I'm not eating because the prep is too much for me right now. I see my hairdresser on Wednesday and I am sick of my hair and just want it gone. Talked to my friend, Mary, last night for an hour because she was having a bad time with some things. We talked about her selling her house and a wide variety of things sitting on her heart and mind. Then we talked about wigs and such. So her mood was much better when we hung up. I hate my hair so much right now. I'm getting thin on top from all this stress of the last 2 years or so. My Mim had this same issue in her 40s before she died at 47. Plus my Dad and both brothers. My youngest brother had shaved his hair off years ago. After our Dad died he was letting it kind of grow in. My late brother always blamed me cutting his hair when I was a hairdresser for his hair coming out. He kept his cut close. I teased him about being a fuzzy duckling. The next couple of weeks are going to be hard. March 10th is the date he had surgery, and I knew deep in.my heart he wouldn't survive long. The 12th is when my brother died and I performed COR on him until the EMTS got there. The 17th is his birthday. Thank you for reading this and commenting. I wish you all the best in the week ahead. I'm trying to keep myself occupied with many things and my appointments. Sending you all love and hugs and prayers ❤

    This is a hard month for both of us. My parents' anniversary is the 5th and it would have been 55 years. Your brother's birthday is the same day as my dad's. I understand that this is going to be hard on you. I just try to remember the good times and how he lived, not the end.

    Hope you have a good week. The first anniversary of your brother's death will be rough, but ever first is after the death of a loved one. Think of all the good times you spent with him, both as kids and as you grew up, and as adults. Those are the memories we enjoy remembering.
    All the time getting ready for the stove to be delivered, then the driv er got sick, well, your ready know for when it gets delivered.

    It was nice that you got to spend time with your family over the weekend. Hoping that you will find relief for your headache.

    A March blessing for you:
    “May joy and peace surround you,
    contentment latch your door,
    and happiness be with you now
    and bless you evermore!”

    Oh my! Sending you strength and prayers as you get through these next few weeks.
    It was a long day for me, making the rounds to go see my last surviving aunt in NE TX. I don’t see how she can last long, bedridden and not eating.

    Has it been a year already? It's been a tough one, I know. Rest and relax after your migraine and video game adventure.

    I hope this coming week is a lot less stressful for you. I am learning to let go which is extremely hard for a Virgo. Those dust bunnies are having a blast. Praying that you will regain some balance in the coming weeks.

    Those "special" days are really hard. Tomorrow (1st) would have been my 1st DH's birthday. He passed away in 1989 but after 22 years of marriage, it is still a part of my history and always will be just like your brother's is part of your history.
