The girls left last night. Yesterday was crazy trying to get them ready. It's too quiet this morning. It seems so weird and quiet this morning. I've been with Sherry and Helena for 8 weeks.

Barb has stirred the pot again. Harry decided to tell me yesterday instead of the day it happened. It always takes the wind out of my sail even though I know she's a ticking time bomb. It will do me good to get away for awhile.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I sat there last night trying to take my class, aggravated that the computer wouldn't do what I wanted it to, Sherry was looking for something, Tim was talking away at me...and then Tim asked me why I was frazzled. Sherry said "The class is just for fun, right?"

I don't think that there are many things I really want to do and try to follow through with. Do I?

It was a long day and night. Sherry woke up with the flu. I spent the day trying to get Helena to eat, do laundry, and keep her busy. Helena started throwing up at night, along with her diarrhea. We took her into the doctor this morning thinking she was getting dehydrated. He took her off the antibiotics - woo hoo. She drank some pedialyte when we got home and they are sleeping right now.

Sherry told me that she and Helena will be going back down with Sarah for at least 2 weeks after the baptism (which is a week from Sunday). I am so attached to Helena that it's not even funny. I know Grandmas love their grandchildren, but is mine too much?

Poor Sherry doesn't know what to think of me asking questions of doctors. She can't remember all that I went through when she and Sarah were little. She wasn't there in Alabama and she wasn't here last winter with Mom. I can't help but ask questions. I've learned enough and seen enough to know somewhat of what is going on.

The arrogant er doctor wrote the prescription wrong and I noticed it after it was filled. She wrote 10 ml 4 times a day. The dropper they gave us was 5 ml. Right away, I told her to only give Helena 5 and then call her doctor. I was right. Not only was it supposed to be 5 ml, but it was only supposed to be 3 times a day. A letter to the hospital is in order on this one.

Good luck with those things. Just read that post about the crime in your area. Personally, I moved away from a beautiful beach side town due to issues of crime (I also met the love of my life and moved to be near him)

However, I would definitely recommend living in an area where you feel safe, it has greatly increased my peace of mind.

Helen doesn't feel good. She's got a terrible yeast infection diaper rash and a sore throat. I still hate when little ones don't feel good.

I had to go to court this morning. I got the ticket changed from speeding - which I wasn't - to impeding traffic. The ticket cost a little more but there will be no points on my license.

It was a long day of trying to make decisions. We went with Mom to an assisted living place. She seemed to enjoy herself. But, we are trying to get her to realize that she needs to be there - there's not much choice.

Sherry is so unsure of everything. She ended up not going to that interview today: a wise choice. Sarah and I both want her down in Alabama.

A little 4-year-old was a a park on 14 and Little Mack with the mother last night at about 9. A car drove by and the little one got shot in the head. He was transferred from McLaren to Children's Hospital this morning.

The pharmacy where I get my mom's prescriptions was robbed at gunpoint less than an hour after I was there last week. Neither Sherry nor I feel comfortable having Helena in this area.

Harper still didn't feel good. I don't want to bring anything home to Helena. Jen did set up an interview for Sherry at the restaurant. We got talking about it, and we'd probably lose money if she worked. I still don't really want to continue babysitting for them, though. Things to do, places to go, good times to be had with my girls.

Jennifer and Leon are closer to becoming foster parents. They would need me to fill out paperwork and be willing to go with the flow and babysit whoever they have. I also found out after I got there yesterday that Harper was sick the night before. Not good. I am not sure I would be able to fill out the paperwork and not have the powers that be find out. I am not sure if I would be able to handle children who are stressed and in limbo. It was difficult yesterday for about a half hour to handle Harper when she woke up crying hard for her mom for about 20 minutes. And as I tell Sherry, My girls are my priority.

Helena is such a joy. I hate to have to go places and not spend the time with her. I know we can't be together all the time, though. But I tell Sherry that. She hasn't had time for herself much since she's been here.

We seemed to do a little better yesterday. Today, we were late for church. We still seem to be trying to figure out what we both want to do. I think it's getting a ;little clearer for us, but it's still pretty foggy.

Patty,
Lately I've been feeling tired too. I think we both need to eat more fiber and something that will give use energy. Wouldn't it be great if they have the powder energy drink or something.
I've been sleeping on and off for the past few days and no energy at all either. I have things I need to do but just "lazy" to do it.
Sometime I have to push myself to get things done. I hope we have a better week.

On one hand, I am getting up in the morning and getting my chores done before getting on the computer.
But, on the other hand, I am not getting up early enough to start my steps/workout and sometimes come up short. I'm not stressed about getting things done, but I feel as if I drop the ball sometimes.Gotta fine tune this.

I woke up feeling fat. I went to the bathroom about 4 times already. I need to get to the doctor to have a complete physical. I still have this cough/sinus thing. There have been too many days where I've been soooo tired. I've taken 3 naps in the last couple weeks and that is just not like me.

Sherry, Helena and I went to the grocery store at 10.00 We didn't leave the store until almost noon. It took me to about 3 to get everything put away. I did get some cleaning in and a little time to myself.

Tim has not been happy this week still and I am not sure what to do about it.

Whenever Tim gets into one of his "moods", he talks my head off and expects me to make decisions right then. Last night was one of those nights. He wants us to have my Mom live with us. I think that would be too much and I would have an even less of a life than I have now.

I woke up sounding terrible. When I took some Dayquil, I felt better. It's wearing off and my ears are bugging me a little.

Watching Addy and Harper last night enforced my feelings that I'd rather be with Helena.

It wasn't the Easter that I expected. Sherry and Helena did go to church with me; at first I thought they were staying home. Then to Wal Mart. Helena was asleep so we sat in the car and Sherry went in. Helena woke up so we went looking for Sherry. Viki was supposed to come over. She was way late. Helena had a nap as I walked her around the block. Harry and Cheryl showed up unexpectedly. Helena was way late for bed and ended up overtired and with a late messy diaper. I glass pan shattered on me. Quite the un-quiet day that I expected.

Sherry is 33 today. What happened??? It was just yesterday and I really remember it that way. We got on the floor with Helena this morning and picked up the puppets. Helena paid no attention to us, but we sure got giggling. It's been awhile since we've done that.

It was just Helena and me last night. She was so good. I asked her where her baby was and she went over and picked it up. i asked if she was going to give her baby a kiss and she did. It does amaze me that she understood what I said and did it. I don't remember my girls doing things like that so early. I want to be able to do so much with her. I don't know at this point if I will always be able to do things with her at this point, but I sure want to.

I woke up at 3 today. Stress is 100%: between trying to get ready to leave, to have the house ready, and getting a car that is way too much money. I will do what I can do and leave the rest in God's hands.

I got a few things accomplished before I even got out of the house this morning. That felt good. I went to a mom to mom sale for Sherry, stopped at Mom's, now I'm back trying to get busy again.

It was a LONG day yesterday. I ran errands for Mom. Jen asked if I could possibly watch a nine-month-old in addition to the girls. A friend is having money difficulty and may move in. I got a call when I was babysitting from Beth LeClair asking if I had given any more thought about taking over for Sharon when she goes on vacation for 2 weeks in April. I hadn't given it any thought. When it was first mentioned to me, I said how busy I was. Between my own things that I usually don't have time to do, Mom, babysitting, class, and Sherry and Helena, I just don't see where I could possibly fit that in.

I was exhausted when I got home. I wouldn't be babysitting at all if I didn't so desperately need the money to get my budget back under control. Granted, it's my own fault. When Tim moved in, he said I'd get x amount per week. He started off being kind of consistent, but that has really gone downhill in the last year. He says he'd rather me not babysit, but we will have to discuss a budget before that could happen.

No one was home when I went to Mom's. I couldn't help but get a little aggravated again, despite really not wanting to. I want to spend quality time with her like the others do but still get stuck making sure she doesn't live in dirt and germs.

I watched just Harper today from 9:30-3. I had brought a few things that I could do when she took her nap. She figured hey - she's got someone to herself, no way would she sleep. She was good though, I'm just tired.

I feel like the V8 commercial - somebody please hit me on the forehead! It dawned on me, the queen of list-making, that I should write down the good points of the articles I read. Granted, I have done it with some goal articles, but why I haven't with other articles I have no clue.

I tried to talk a little to Tim. He asked me what I wanted to do yesterday on Saturday night before he went to bed. He called me and asked if I wanted to go walking with him and Sadie then told me it was too cold outside. He said we'd go get something to eat - he did with Sadie. I told him that he keeps promising to spend time with me and then it doesn't happen. He said I seemed uninterested. I tried to explain how I felt so fatigued. I don't know if he understood what I was saying. He tries. What's wrong with me?

I am wiped out from babysitting. Five days this week and I think it's just too much for me. Cindy wasn't there yesterday and Jen didn't get home until 5:30. She paid me for the month. I wanted to tell her about the last week, but she was the only one home and all three girls were on her like flies. I gotta do it today.

I had an aggravating day yesterday. I tried again to get answers on my insurance. I went to Mom's to take her to the doctor. I called before and found out Barb did a disappearing act, so I had no choice. I thought she was going and that I wouldn't have trouble getting to my doctor appointment. The garbage wasn't set out for pickup. She didn't take out the stinking garbage from upstairs. The newspapers I brought over to wrap things in the basement were taken out of the fruit cellar and pitched. Mom's knee wasn't covered and she had picked at it again or fell again. I couldn't tell. Just had a bad attitude.
