I Wish My Mom Was Here to Send Me to My Room

I loved being sent to my room. I'd sit quietly and read. Or write in my journal. The housework or dinner or whatever would still get done on the other side of the door, but inside, it was quiet and comfortable and peaceful.

Today has not been any of those things.

Last night I went to bed with the worst case of dizziness that I've had in a long time. At 3 AM I tossed my pillow over the side of the bed to lower my head, then raised my feet in the air. SO dizzy. All through the night. Woke up thinking maybe it's all the tea I drink. Hot tea, cold tea... so I decided not to have tea today. So far so good. No dizziness and no headache do to the lack of caffeine!

Came out to the kitchen sink, turned on the faucet and water began pouring out from the cupboard onto the floor! I grabbed some towels and soaked everything up. Took out everything from under the sink and slopped up the puddle. The pipes are leaking. Terrific.

When to work to find our database system is still not working properly. Something about ports and proxy servers. Our IT says it's the database system. They say it's us. I run the database. We've had it three years. I left work crying. Again.

I came home early to get Beth because she had a doctors appointment. She was still in bed. Even though I wrote her note and told her what time to be up and ready... she was still in bed. My prodding and 'encouragement' :) didn't help her mood. She was slow and full of attitude the entire morning. The doctor checked her height, weight, looked at her feet, checked her hearing and eyesite.... wait. That's required for a sports physical!? They sure have gotten detailed.

Back to work and everyone is coming to me because they can't do their work on the database. I know. I can't do mine either. Ya know, 4:00 didn't come soon enough.

And tomorrow I go for my biopsy to see if I have thyroid cancer.

Can't I just hang out in my room for a few days?

:( This reminds me of a book I read when I was little called: "Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day." I'll be praying for good results on your biopsy!

What a horrible day!! No wonder being sent to your room doesnt sound so bad! Know what I wish? I wish I had my OWN room, lol...I know thats terrible for a married woman to say right?? But dont you ever just miss having your OWN room! I do :)
Praying for you today that your biopsy has good results.

Sorry you had such a bad day! (We actually have that book Jenny's talking about! Haha) Allie was in a bad mood all day yesterday for no reason, maybe she was feeling your pain! :) Hopefully today has been better!

So sorry Cindy - I hope you feel better and your database is not too sick. Yes, I wish I could go to bed for days at a time too - Just today I read that Catherine Zeta Jones has checked herself into a mental health facility because she was so stressed about her husband's cancer....wish I had the money to do that - no cancer, but serious financial concerns, i.e no money to pay an attormey so we can be Alex's legal guardian when she turns 18 in June, and the list goes on and on - sometimes cancer sounds better. oh well - I do NOT feel sorry for Catherine Zeta Jones today - just envious...Get welll.

Be well. To quote an old mystic: All shall be well. All shall be well. All manner of things shall be well. PAX
