I am back!

The past five weeks have been crazy, amazing, and just plain exhausting.

Where do I start? My husband (Honey) has had a health problem that seems to be continuing but we don't know exactly what it is -- but the docs think it is serious. Bubbles has had two ear infections. I wish they would put her on an allergy medicine like they keep talking about! My situation at work is in limbo. The stalker is supposed to be on leave but he still shows up. He will not longer be employed after February 29th! It is very stressful to have him still present. My allergies have been acting up, and two days before we returned from Christmas, I either got food poisoning or a very nasty bug. I expelled for 2 days and couldn't eat for another two as eating gave me a stomach ache. When we got home the back portion of our house seemed cold. We realized the heater (new in August -- remember the guys who stole our electronics?) didn't work at all. On New Year's Eve the tech came out and looked at it and said "Well, the good news is your house didn't burn down. And it should have from the amount of fire evident in your attic." The wires, heater coils, blower, circuit board in attic all burned and melted. When they came to fix it, it turns out that the controller in our hallway was burned as was the circuit board OUTSIDE on our air conditioner. We were without heat in the back portion of our house for a week where we had 22 degree lows one night. All three of us were snuggled in bed together. It was cute. Thank GOD I still have a house. He knows I have all I can handle right now.

About a week ago a guy rear-ended me (in a relatively new car -- 8000 miles) when I went to buy Honey some meds. Fortunately, I saw him coming and had left a ridiculous amount of room in front of me. So I excelerated and minimized the damage except my back and hips hurt.

I think that's about it. I simply couldn't read any blogs or work on mine with all the craziness going on. Thank you to those who sent me comments and private messages.

Yep, you read it correctly two miles. It started bad and got worse. I struggled through both of them. Enough said.

I'll try again tomorrow.
