I have been up for awhile, trying to get caught up on my blog reading, and although I'm not all the way finished with it, I am getting there. Some days, there are very few to read, others---it seems we all write a couple of posts. If I have not been to yours yet, I will get there. I love reading about all of you, each of your lives, and of course commenting, because when it comes to blogging, you all can't shut me up. It does seem though, that many of you (as well as me) are going through so much right now...and my heart goes out to each of you. I don't like it when my friends hurt, it makes me hurt too.
It has been a long, hard, pain-filled night. I have no idea why, I did nothing any differently yesterday, than any other day. My pain level recently is bad, and it seems no matter what I do, there is no way to change it. I try really hard to keep going, just forget it and keep going. Many days, that works. Others, it's impossible. Recently, the impossible side has been the one showing up. I never give in, but lately, I do find that I hurry and finish what has to be done so that I can give up. Who knows, it does seem to come and go...so it can go anytime soon, I won't complain.
My mom and step dad are coming to visit me today! I truly am excited about that, they have not been here, to my new place. It's hard on her to travel and I am now two hours away, so I do appreciate the effort they is going through to get here. Richard, who you all know had surgery a few weeks ago for colon cancer, has finally been released to drive, so I am excited. I'm sure they won't be here too long, but will arrive around noon, and instead of spending the time they will be here cooking, I have decided to order some lunch out, so that I can actually talk with them. I do have to clean this place up this morning, however. Cat hair, cat hair, cat hair...and although I swiffer the floors daily, still, I have cat hair...
I made Val's Texas Caviar last evening. It is so GOOD! I had to go to two different stores to find the stupid black eyes peas in a can...but otherwise, so easy and wonderful.
Have an awesome Saturday!
