Life gets in the way sometimes!

Well, I lied!  We were supposed to be in Washington D.C. for the 50th Celebration of Peace Corps by today.  Life intervened again.  Last weekend, for my hubby's birthday, we were planning to go to the boat, sit and enjoy the sunset and stars and celebrate.  For some weeks previous, I had been battling a bad stomach, and by the time we were sitting on the boat, I was doubled over with abdominal pain.  We turned around and came home and tried to rest, but I was clutching my stomach most of the time.  By 12:30 a.m. we decided that a long weekend of pain was not something we were looking forward to, so off to the E.R. we went. Sedated on morphine and saline, I was "well" enough to go home at 5 a.m. Ugh, not a fun night, and a week later, I am still suffering with pain and gas, and concerns.  I have a specialist appointment next week, so see what is going on.  My dad had diverticulitis, so I know that it might be the problem.  I have tried to be good about what I take in, so I am hoping to turn this around...So why did I tell you all of this?  Well it is my excuse for not traveling this weekend, and for being a little afraid to be too far away if an attack hits me.  I am hoping our friends at the reunion will take alot of pics, we are so sad we are not there with them..

Meanwhile, I still am managing to work, and juggle my various jobs.  We finally had a real estate payday, and have started paying our bigger bills.  And I am subbing at least one day a week...Retail hours means I am working 7 days a week, but I haven't felt too tired yet.  As long as my stomach cooperates...I give it a talking to every day!

We are having a rainy week, which means I return to my crafts, one at a time.  Crocheting while watching T.V., attaching beads and making some new jewels, and my quilt is being returned to again.  It would be nice to finish something, but such is the adhd world I live in. 

My hubby's big Irish family had their annual Labor Day picnic, at a local park, here are a few pics of the cousins and extended family!


Tonight is my daughter's homecoming, though she is opting out of the dance.  I will be selling hotdogs for PTA before the game, but as I write this, rain is constant.  Hope I can locate a raincoat before then!
Highschool has been a challenge for daughter, but I am proud of her work ethic and getting herself up and out the door every morning.  Quite a different child from her older brother...need I say more?

I hope you are finding time to do what you enjoy, leave me a comment, on how you do it!
