Hard Week

It's been a hard week and an emotional roller coaster.  My mom has been sick for the past few months and didn't say anything to anyone now she is in the hospital.  They did a biopsy of her stomach on Friday and told her they found one big and two small ulcers and were sending them for analysis.  She's a strong woman but I'm not sure how much more she can handle.  Twice breast cancer survivor, 3 major heart attacks and a stroke.  This is all so hard to take in.  She's been losing weight and now they have her on IV fluids but don't want to push them to hard so they don't damage her heart.

It's been a long few days.  Sometimes I wish there were twice as many hours in a day so I could get everything done instead of being played out by suppertime.

Met with a contractor this evening at one of the rental units.  Have to put some new flooring in as the old stuff is pretty dismal.  Son had some left over laminate so can do the 3 bedrooms and living room.  Will put new lino in the bathroom and hallway.  Hopefully next year will be able to lino the kitchen and laundry room.  Have too many other projects at some of the other units to complete this year to get it all done.

Had a horrible storm last evening winds up to 115 km/hr (70 mph) and hail ranging from pea to marble size.  Got the plants in the garage just in time.  Supposed to be nice now for the next two weeks, thinking summer has arrived just in time for it to turn to fall.  Only have two seasons here - Winter and construction.  Most of the main roads in the city are under construction so makes for commuting with some difficulty.  Luckily I go to work early in the morning and get off ahead of the afternoon rush hour.

We had chapter elections at our TOPS club last week and I am back in as leader again.  This time I going to do things a bit differently and delegate, delegate, delegate.  There are enough of us that it shouldn't be difficult to get people to help out.  Looking forward to the next year as I missed a lot in the past 18 months due to the cancer.

Work is a little boring right now as my manager is away on vacation.  Will be glad when he returns on Monday.  It's been ok but have lots to discuss with him so that a decision can be made as I don't feel comfortable making those kind of decisions.

So tonight I am going to bed early in hopes of getting some rest.  Haven't been sleeping well again, not sure if it's due to all the daylight at early hours or just me being me.

Skippy is Back ....

My favorite blogger, I Make Soap, has come back to blogging and I am so glad she did.  Blogs are such a personal thing but you do get the chance to so much about the person writing the posts.  Skippy was there for me when I went through the cancer and even though I have never met her I feel like I have known her all my life.

So I think I will start back to my blogging as well.  I always found it a great outlet for my emotions.  I'm not as good at blogging as Skippy cuz she's down right hilarious at times but I can give her a run for her money ... lol.

Welcome back to the blog world my dear friend.  Catch you on the flip side.
