Well, I am finally over my cold. WooHoo!! Seems like it took so long, but really it has been gone since Monday...I just haven't had time to blog!
February has been better!! I got some Trazodone and have been sleeping better. I don't have to take it every night, so that is a plus. It is non-addicting and I don't feel drowsy in the morning. It is just an old kind of anti-depressant and I have taken it before, so I know it works. Except this time I take it and go to bed. Last time I was on it, I would stay up and then it just doesn't work. No kidding!! I also take melatonin when I wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, tonight being the exception. I feel rested and I can go back to sleep in an hour.
I haven't had the night sweats all week!! I have started using a light blanket instead of a comforter. It is chilly when I go to sleep, but I am usually just fine one I fall asleep. It is so worth it to not wake up sweaty with my bed soaked!!
Kid's Group was last night. It was a parent child night and we made 120 cards for the elderly at a nursing home. I will deliver them tomorrow. We made them Valentine's Day Cards. It was so fun and it was fun to look through them to see the different ways the kids and parents decorated them!!
I think the resident's will be very happy to receive a special card. Especially since it was made with them in mind!!
My sister and bil are coming to town today!! I am excited to see her. I haven't seen her in awhile...guess it was Christmas since she was in town. That was pretty wild with Ethan (6 year old) and 3 of Terrel's teenagers. I was also running around my apartment finishing dinner. The was the first time in a long time I made the whole dinner myself.
I hope I see Ethan this weekend and Jimmy, too. I have Valentine's Day presents for both of them. I got Ethan a really cute stuffed animal and both some candy. They could both stand to gain some weight!!
I have been volunteering more lately and will start to have my own work study next week at PLUK. I will be picking up more family support cases, now that I have time to actually do them. She can do most of the paperwork that is required for Tutoring, Work Study and other things I have been doing. I will do the filing, because Bobbie doesn't trust a work study to do her filing and take cases. Of course, I will have to train Carmi to do all those things. That's okay. I don't mind.
I woke up this morning to go to the bathroom and I am so hungry!! I ate a bowl of Kashi cereal last night. I would have thought it would get me through the night!! Guess it was the other stuff I ate...the not so good stuff...that has me hungry. Of course, I didn't eat anything but soup at 5 pm. Then I ate 2 cups of asparagus and 1 cup of fresh green beans. Not a lot of dinner!!
And I had some dark chocolate m&m's. I was really hungry. Probably because I didn't have much for dinner and I ate the soup at 5pm and the veggies at 8 pm. They were really tasty!! Fresh asparagus and fresh green beans. I got them at Sam's Club the other day. They looked so good!! I steamed them in the microwave. Love to cook that way, especially my veggies!!
Well, I am going to check my email. In another 5 minutes I can have a banana!!
Hope I can stop at one!!
Have an awesome day today friends!! It feels good to be back on the site. I am so busy, I usually get on by way of my phone and I am unable to blog on there. Not enough windows to open!!!
