San Antonio, Cousin's Children With Me

1. Yes, they’re back! My cousin and her husband dropped their 3 kids off on Sunday, and then they both headed back to San Antonio. Her husband leaves for Iraq again today.

I really missed them, and am as happy as can be to have them back. They seem to be very happy, too! My cousin still has a little more to go, before she gets a clean bill of health and is able to care for her children again. I hope it happens before school starts, because one of them will be starting kindergarten, and the other will be going back to school. If they're still with me by then, I just don't know what I'm going to do to get them to school, but if need be, I'll find a solution with my boss. He's an ANGEL!

Grandpa and I got rid of every single one of my many dust collectors by packing them in boxes and putting them down in the basement. I never realized just how much of a pack rat I was! It will be much faster and easier to clean the house now, not to mention safer for the little kids!

2. I started feeling funny about 2 weeks ago. It started with a chill throughout my body, followed by sweats. A few days later, my throat started feeling like a sponge, and I started coughing terribly. I went to J-Town and bought some anti-biotics and cough syrup from the pharmacist there, and after taking them for a few days, my throat went back to normal, but the cough persisted. Then to add to all these ailments, I started feeling nauseated. Yesterday, I bent down to pick up something, and I suddenly felt a gigantic fire cracker go off inside my entire head. It was so powerful and painful that I had to sit down on the floor for quite a while, until the burning sensation subsided a little. I noticed that when I drove off to work in my car, I had to stop and think where I was. I felt kind of like when I was a kid and I’d twirl round and round, then suddenly stop, and the room continued going around and I just didn’t know which why was which. I have been super busy, and stressed out lately, and I have been hyperventilating more than usual. I feel a little better today, but my doctor, who happens to be one of my dear friends, squeezed me in today, and I’m to see her at 9:30 this morning. I had a male doctor before who was wonderful, but since my girlfriend recently completed her internship, and started her own practice, I felt I had to give her my business, not only because she’s my friend, but because she’s proven to be an excellent doctor!

I hope it isn’t anything too serious, because I have Grandpa, 3 little kids, 10 dogs, and NOW 24 cats and a turtle that depend on me! I’ll be sharing pics of the 5 kittens I decided to keep very soon. One of them was born without eyes, and it has affected me more than you’ll ever know!

I hope it's nothing serious sweetheart...

Thank you Dear One! Tomorrow I take a test and have no idea how long it takes for the results, but keep your fingers crossed for me!

I will!

Good Morning,

Hmm? You’re a veteran too, right? If so, Make sure your Doc knows where you served overseas and when. It may help them track things down. I hope they figure it out soon, so you don’t stress over it.

Other stuff (I’m sorry for sounding like a wanna-be big brother today). When it comes to the kids you might want to think about throwing it on a friends only or some other kind of filter. You do a good job of discouraging whack-a-dos you never know.

And remember to unload on your friends at home, you’ll need to so you don’t go stir crazy!

Holy Shit, look at that list, how big is your house?

Yes I am a vet.

I'm feeling so much better. The CT scan came out fine, and I've over the cough. I believe I caught whatever the kids had.

Please don't appologize for sounding like a wanna be brother! :o) I don't understand what whackos could do by my posting pics of the kids. Whenever I post their pics, I make sure it's of their back, or put as friends only.

I'm able to have so many animals because I have a big yard that's a little over an acre. I'll be making a post soon with pics. As for pets in the house, I only have 2 little dogs and 2 cats; the rest are strays that live in the font of my yard.

Yes, it will be much better for all concerned if your cousin is able to take care of her family before school starts. I truly hope so!!

I am very concerned about you...Please be SAFE and let us know how things check out as a result of your Dr. visit. I hope everything is OK.....

Oh, wow
I hope it isnt anything serious. It seems as though you have a lot of weight on your shoulders though. I mean "Grandpa, 3 little kids, 10 dogs, and NOW 24 cats and a turtle" That's a lot. I would be way beyond stressed out!

Hey Savanah you know when you take your dust collectors back out of the boxes it will be just like Christmas again for you :o)

And I know you will find ways if you have to you are a really resourceful woman, and you know I got the same thing with the cough too would not go away but it is good now and I do not think that there related the head thing I hope it is not some kind of stroke maybe it is just all the stress, I am glad you are going to see a doctor Today!! and her being your friend is a good thing she will be honest with you. My docs never agree on any thing so good luck! And know that you are in my prayers.

And you sure do have a lot to worry about sunshine, remember I am hear Like always if you need to lean on me :o)

On a side note you know I just read this the other day

Yemen Honey Pie – ((or bint as-sahn)) In Yemen, on special occasions in the homes of the affluent, bint as-sahn is always served as a first course; at other times it is eaten during the meal. However, it makes an excellent dessert.

So remember if you need your Yemen Honey Pie I am here as your first course, or during any meal :o)) and the best part I am here for you if you need some dessert ;o)

And remember "I Love You Sunshine," my Steaming Strawberry Pudding! ;o)

You must be that Sainted Mother
A little sweetheart, that you are. I will be praying for you that nothing is really wrong with you at this point. You do have way too many that depend on you.

Probably way too hard for you to slow down at this point.
Jul. 18th, 2007 10:46 pm (UTC)
I hope you are ok. I will say a prayer for your health. I know those kids will be ok with you. But I still hope their momma gets well too so they can be with their momma by school time.

May be time for you to slow down a little,
my friend.........
Jul. 18th, 2007 11:52 pm (UTC)
I'll be thinking of you. Hugs.
Jul. 19th, 2007 12:12 am (UTC)
Well, I hope you take the time to take care of yourself.
Jul. 19th, 2007 12:45 am (UTC)
Hopefully it is just something minor like an ear infection, which can cause dizziness and disorientation. Take care of yourself beautiful!
Jul. 19th, 2007 03:34 am (UTC)
*hugs* hope you feel better soon!

I can not wait to see the pictures of the kitties!! Our kitties out here are getting really brave and rambunctious.... they have been climbing trees and venturing to new areas, I just worry that they don't get too brave and get hurt. They are just too cute! One is my little buddy and comes running when she hears my voice. I am glad she is not afraid of me, she had an eye infection and we got eye med from the vet so we could clear it up... I could never catch any of those other kittens, they are too fast!
