I'm Weak.

Especially when it comes to lust. For anything Apple. ;-)

Can you blame me?

In other news, I am sick over current events. Oil slicks, terrorist attacks (although this latest attempt was botched thank heaven), the housing market, etc. etc. etc. Sometimes I just stay away from the news, because I have really been down lately about this whole moving thing, and how difficult it has proven to be. I won't go into detail, but let's just say NOTHING is working out with the house situation, either here, or in Charlotte. It's frustrating and trying, and couple that with me freaking out because I have a birthday coming up (I loathe them now, LOATHE them!) and all the stress of being a single parent because my husband is working four states away, and one kid who continually is unwell, and well, I've not been doing "so hot."

A dear friend sent me cookies yesterday, and really made my day. (And my kids' day, ha ha!) I just need to pull myself out from under the mountain and keep climbing it. I'll reach the top eventually. It just takes time. Thanks for all the well wishes. I'll get there.

Thing Three had his sutures out yesterday, and he is ROARING to play soccer. I am hesitant to let him, because he has horrible seasonal allergies and he's just getting over his pneumonia, so running around a grassy field might not be the best idea. I told him we would "wait and see" how things went on Saturday, because I don't want to burst his bubble. I just don't think his lungs are strong enough. I don't need him collapsing on the field. If he runs up the stairs at this point, he has to stop and wait a minute for his breathing to return to normal. I don't know what to do. Another dear friend suggested Yoga (and its beneficial breathing exercises) to help, and I'm looking into that. But I also feel like the best way to get his lungs back to normal is let him run around. Dilemma.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! I still can't believe it's already May.

This summer I will be moving into my 7th home in 11 years. Some moves have gone quite easily, but most of them have been nightmarish experiences. Know that you're not alone! And I've also learned that when the whole process is over, where you end up is often better than the "missed" opportunities along the way. In the meantime, it's totally okay to cry. It's a great stress reliever. I'd rather cry than do yoga.

Cookies make everything better.

When you do get your new house, it will be so awesome you'll see why it took so long.

I'm being pressured to take a house I LOATHE simply because it's in the right area. But I'd be miserable in it, no matter how good a deal it is. And it's not like i could just flip it.

Be careful that Thing Three doesn't overdo. The lung capacity has to build back up; otherwise, pushing already weakened lungs too fast too soon will cause another relapse. That was the story of my life for years. I spent over 20 years with the constant bronchitis/pneumonia battle, and I didn't even have allergies.

Swimming will also help. I know that sounds weird, but it helps build lung capacity.
