So...the past three weeks has been absolutely NUTS!?
My Dad and Step-mom came to visit. I was shocked. I am so conditioned to expect him to bail out at the last minute or try and control or change things that I had written off him ever following through with this... but, they did come and it was a nice visit.
While they were here, water started leaking trough our kitchen ceiling. It did not stop. It happened at odd times, like at night when nobody'd showered or bathed since morning. My Step-mom insisted we speak with someone to have it fixed. See, the problem is that this has happened SO many times since we've lived here and they've only employed stop-gap measures which never worked in the long run.
So, we had someone come in, and I became the squeaky wheel.
So, after living in a hotel and with kind friends for over a week, we have an entirely new bathroom (okay, we DID pay for the new dual-flush toilet and vanity out of pocket), but it is lovely and new and SO nice!
We also seem to have fixed the leak, so no water coming through the ceiling any more... new ceiling... no mold.
Before we could move back in my Mum called and let us know she was coming for the weekend. I was so exhausted from driving P back and forth from where we were staying and camp and drinving to every home-improvement store buying fixtures, paint and caring for Liam.
Mum was due Saturday morning and we, thankfully, had a toilet by Friday afternoon. I was feeling pretty exasperated by Friday night, had a sore throat... but friend was having a jewelry party and I really wanted to support her, s I went and had a nice time.
I was in my own bed by 11pm and started having chills by 11:30. Chills turned to shaking, fever and general horribleness...at 3:30am I woke Alan up and I had a terribly high fever and he says I was incoherantly babbling about planetary alignment.
So, I spent most of the weekend sick... my Mum came anyway (I hope you are still heathy, Mum...:( ) and popped pills every 4-6 hours.
Last night I looked up "cold" in my Louise Hay book and it says it's caused from too much going on around you, etc, etc...I had to laugh... I think I may qualify.
