Been crazy the past couple of weeks.  Forgive me.  I’ve had tons going on and, quite honestly, nothing new and exciting to blog about.  Yeah, you all know this blog is always chock full of new and exciting.  [insert snark here]

I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around Will’s situation.  Physical therapy isn’t working.  Not even a little bit.  He goes back to the spine specialist in a couple of weeks and they will talk about plan B. 

Trying to get ready for vacation, which is also a Plan B.

Dammit.  Plan B seems to be running my life right now.

Our FRG for Will’s unit (Family Readiness Group)…Holy cow they have TOTALLY ticked me off and I wasn’t at the last meeting because I had to work, but I promised to be at the next meeting and will be laying some smack down.  I’m thinking it’s a good thing I wasn’t there in the beginning because I fo sho would not have been back.  Even though I still get angry and upset, I have another 3 weeks to let it cool off.  Them changing their mind on a commitment to me has the potential of costing me big bucks.  I’m not talking $50, $100 or even $500…way more.  I’m scrambling for a Plan B.

I’m preparing for the funeral of my friend’s husband.  That’s also hard to wrap my mind around.

Olivia’s school started back August 7…she goes to a private school and their schedule is a bit different than other schools.  The fellowship they fall under starts earlier, but they don’t really get out that much earlier – close to the end of May.  Well, one kid has already been diagnosed with strep throat.  Guess what?  His mom still sent him to school.  Grrrr.  Then had the kahunas to gripe about the kids who put their mouth near the thing on the water fountain.  Guess what?!  I watched her kid do it.   Keep him home, please.  Now we are stuffy and snotty and all things green. 

There’s more, I’m sure, but this is all I can come up with.

I will say, I lurve my new bubble bath.  This was the scene for me last night.  Thanks, in part, to Will taking care of Olivia’s bath and bedtime.

Yes, that’s an iced tea glass of wine.  It’s too messy to get out and refill my regular wine glass.  Proper planning on my part while staving off being a lush.

I normally stay until the water gets cool.  Not last night.  I stayed until all the bubbles were gone listening to my 80s hairband ballads. 

Despite the musical arrangement, the theme of bath time was “Tiny Bubbles” by Don Ho

Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles)
In the wine (in the wine)
Make me happy (make me happy)
Make me feel fine (make me feel fine)

Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles)
Make me warm all over
With a feeling that I’m gonna
Love you till the end of time

So here’s to the golden moon
And here’s to the silver sea
And mostly here’s a toast
To you and me

So here’s to the ginger lei
I give to you today
And here’s a kiss
That will not fade away

Be well, my friends.  More soon.
