I find myself random a lot recently. So I just am typing this as it comes. Also at the end is my 'drama' of the day.
Starting to crack under the pressure it feels. Lawyers paid off most the bills that were outstanding. Found life insurance policy so I can get that claimed. Insurance came through with the check for car damage. My cousins are starting to move in. This is where the crazy began. They said around 7 they would be here, I was up at 6:30 freezing while wishing I were still in bed. They didn't get here til almost 11/12. I then had to cram junk into the fridge and freezer, I say junk cause it was mostly prepackaged food or really bad food. I got a bill for my medical that was $600+ before insurance and now I owe about $55 but I am wondering why since I followed procedure on who I went to in my network and went to urgent care instead of ER so I am requesting itemized bill and then calling the insurance. Also getting paperwork to put vehicles into new names, changing the insurance policies, and hopefully finding out about canceling time shares. Yes I am cracking slightly. But I am making progress still. I was up to 205 again and am back down to 203(almost 202) by drinking up water and eating at least 3 meals. I have discovered while my oatmeal is normally good it lacks flavor a lot so I started making it with milk and adding dried blueberries or banana. When I didn't have either I used flavored creamer. Yesterday was a bad day though for me. I had a bit of a head cold from all the papers I had been sorting(7 banana type boxes of papers to burn) and ended up drinking an entire pot of coffee so I was using cream a fair bit also. I did however drink up at least 8c water. While I am slacking on the water today I have resisted the urge to make coffee. I also went outside and threw a baseball in the air for a good 10 minutes just to get some sun and exercise. Thinking a walk in a bit and doing some of my therapy exercises to alleviate some back pain is a good idea also. Hoping to feel a bit more alert tomorrow and less sleepy.

Trauma/Drama that has happened this morning
They bring kitty one in, bring in doggie, bring in kitty two. Kids(5&6) open bathroom door. Kitty one comes out. Kids open my bedroom door where my cat is. Kitty one goes in and I shut door not realizing what has happened. My kitty is traumatized and hides under covers. She refused to come out from them til I took the cat out and then she hid under my bed for the next hour and a half. Needless to say 2 cats locked in a bathroom next to a bedroom with a cat locked in it bad idea but I know now to always lock my bedroom door while they live here. Thank god for safety latches and that requires a screw driver. Also the dogs didn't do too bad meeting just ours was on edge and theirs growled a bit. Ended before they could do damage or continue further.

    emoticon emoticon You can also fight the insurance company on what they pay. Our son was in an accident years ago and our lawyer was in shock that they really weren't paying there percent. Don't let it stress you just keep asking what steps should I take next. emoticon emoticon

    Heh the cats I believe are going to a shelter tomorrow, my cat is staying put in my room. The dogs are getting along so that is good. I am investing in daily walks now just to get away from the craziness and all of it will take place at night. Daytime won't be too bad with school for the kids and work/school for parents in day. Will have to buy honey next time I am at store or try it with agave instead since I have that on hand. I also have a friend going to be taking me out every now and then so I will keep sane a bit more.

    Oh, poor girl...don't lose it just yet. If it is possible take that walk by yourself and let off some steam before you take off someones head. I have had those situations too. But I always let it fester. Always let it ride. And there's nothing wrong with that if you can handle it. forgiveness is best. But some of us do need to vent once in a while. As for your oatmeal, try adding peanut for a little flavor and a little honey. My oldest son does this for protien. As for the pets good luck cats are territorial. emoticon
