Pre-med!!


Never will I be ready to watch you leave. The day you arrived was the day my life truly began. Never could I have imagined my boy would grow to such a wonderful young man, never because I doubted you but in doubt of myself. I am so proud of my son. At 19 he has the next 12 years planned out. God willing they will go as such, I loved having him home with us for the 4th and as usual breaks my heart when he leaves. My son, pre-med. 

Time flies


Moving time is here. My poor man is exhausted. It’s been a push everyday to get it all done. We ended up having to hire a couple guys to move all the big stuff into the uhaul but my son and my fiance had to unload themselves. 

I haven’t been posting much as I been running and moving but things will get back on track after this weekend and I will post more and more pictures from the renovation and more about, well, everything!!  Having a wedding in October, wow! Need to do that stuff. Assassin’s. Lol. See u soon.

So tired of being tired


Hi, I haven’t posted in a bit with all the choas going on at the moment but here’s an update. 

We are still in the apartment until school gets out June 16. I couldn’t see moving my son with only one month left to a new school. 

The house, we took out a wall, have refinished 4 floors so far, layed down 2 more, replaced some electrical wiring that was so old it was crumbly. Took out panelling all over the place, changed out lights and put up ceiling fans, cleaned up a garden that was started in front of the house, tore out wallpaper,  and a lot of clean up. During this whole process packing and sorting through a 3 bedroom apt with full basement and 8 years of junk. 

During this whole process my soon to be has worked his reg full time job of about 60 hours plus has a side job installing decks and some windows and has been the only muscle to move me. My son being 14 and lazy only helps when necessary and I’m not allowed to do much lifting, carrying, moving , climbing, etc. Etc. 

I feel so bad all the time because even if he let me I know I still don’t get as much done on a day as a normal healthy person does. My sleep is awful, I don’t get even a quarter of the REM sleep needed for anyone never mind me. I’m always fighting a cold or pain or something that were me down even more. It’s been about 20 years since I was diagnosed with Addisons and my health has just gone down hill from there but I don’t even remember normal anymore. I’m always tired and it’s so frustrating esp when I have so much to do. I take extra vit c and was just put on a vit d regimen but, I’m still tired.

I have had this chair for almost 15 years and have not had time yet to fix the broken spots , yet, but wanted to know more about it. What kind of wicker , and when it may have been made. I got as far as that style and pattern matches some bar harbor chairs but nothing close to this? So, I’m asking out there if anyone knows anything about this chair??????
