Let me begin by wishing our oldest son, Brett, who sent me to the hospital in labor, on Mother’s Day, twenty-nine years ago, A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope it’s his best birthday ever.
I also hope he has a sense of humor today, because I’ve sent him a couple of funny Ecards, courtesy of JibJab. Brett has two modes–either very serious or very funny, not much in between. Nobody can make me laugh more than Brett, when he is being humorous! I hope that my funny cards make him laugh, as well.
Brett’s hard at work today, keeping those computers running smoothly at a nearby university! Everybody loves the “Computer Guy”, including me! We’ll be joining him and his family for a little birthday celebration later this evening. I can’t wait to meet his family’s new kitten, too!
In other news, Brad and Jennifer are on the road again today. It seems the two of them are always on the road, commuting to work. It’s one of the pitfalls of living on the far side of nowhere. Today, however, the couple is headed on a seven hour drive to North Carolina for Jennifer’s doctor appointment. I’m praying that the Lord will keep them safe as they travel, and that Jennifer’s news will be good.
I didn’t want to mention it before, but Jennifer’s last test, in February, (follow-up for cervical cancer) came back abnormal. We’re not quite sure what that means. Hopefully, the test results are just a “fluke”, and everything will be okay today. If not, then I guess the doctor will advise her about what needs to be done. I’m praying for good news. Their wedding is just over six weeks away… not a good time for any bad news.
Speaking of the wedding getting closer…I will be blogging and visiting blogs a little less during the next few weeks. I’m beginning to have trouble getting everything done that needs to be done. I seem to be burning the candle at both ends lately. I still have to finish getting preparations done for Brad and Jennifer’s wedding rehearsal supper.
Speaking of burning the candle at both ends, I’m also dealing with a major hormone imbalance at the moment! I’ve been taking Synthroid (thyroid medication) since Thanksgiving. I’m having major problems getting the dosage adjusted. Apparently, my thyroid hasn’t worked in quite a while, and my body doesn’t know what to do with all those extra hormones! If you’ve ever had a hormone imbalance, then you know that it’s not fun! It’s no fun for the people around me either. Hot flashes, mood swings, no sleep, nervous jitters, heart palpitations, headaches…Doesn’t that sound like fun? Fortunately, I’m blessed with an understanding family.
I’m a bit melancholy that this is granddaughter, Madison’s, last week of nursery school. She’s had such a great year, and I hate to see it end. She’s been involved in so many fun activities! She’s also become so independent, and has learned so much this year. I’m very proud of her, and I’m excited about her closing ceremony on Thursday evening. It seems like the grandchildren are growing up faster than their parents did! Perhaps it’s because I’m not the one doing the parenting!
I’m going to wrap this post up now, and jump into some mundane household chores…like stripping the beds and cleaning the bathroom! Thank goodness, I only have one bathroom to clean these days. Have a great Tuesday! As for me, I’ll be scrubbing, washing, and having all sorts of “fun”!
