good stuff

This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Repeat as necessary.

I'm better today. Yesterday I was in a lot of pain. I can't quite figure out why this "mastoiditis" hurts off and on. I'm glad that it doesn't hurt constantly. But it's weird. Last night I almost decided to go to the ER. Then I decided if I could just get to sleep... I'd see the doctor again today. I woke up this morning feeling much better. I'll see how it goes during the day today... I'm going to work, can't afford not to. Also... I hate just sitting here feeling unproductive.

Two great things have happened over the past few days (well, more than that but these are two biggies!)
1. My grandmother is sending me a "monetary gift" to help me. I'm planning to use it to buy new tires and get my car in good shape so it will last me several more years.
2. My landlord sent me a letter offering to lower my rent by $50 a month if I sign a new lease that will run thru February 2010. Let me think about it... um... Okay! Who does that? Prices are going up on everything! I was just amazed.

Thank you to my Blogger Babes who befriended Dean on Facebook. I want him to realize that he is not alone in his struggles, that there are strangers out in cyberspace who are concerned about him and his children. I am able to walk away and leave that world behind me. Dean will have to deal with it for the rest of his life. I try to encourage him as best I can.... but sometimes it's just the two of us limping along.

Time for me to glam and go to work. Hope you have a beautiful day! Love and hugs!

I am glad you are feeling a bit better, you have been in my thoughts and prayers. I am also praying for Dean and his children, how I know exactly what he is going through. I would be happy to also give him some encouragement. Have a great day!
