Life Updates and all that Jazz. No, I'm not dead.

Hi. I'm not dead. Just adjusting to me new meds. They're pretty much kicking my trash. 

After I take the pills, I ITCH LIKE CRAZY. My arms are itchy, my chest is itchy, my head and my back... everything itches. Never in my life have I been so happy to wear acrylic nails. I'm also very much experiencing the stomach pain, nausea, and the dreaded hotness. Hot flashes in the summer are no joke people. Of course, all these things should eventually go away, so I have my fingers crossed that it will be sooner rather than later. 

In family news, Thaddeus is in Arizona all by himself. He is visiting family and is going to a cousin camp, and having all sorts of adventures. I have to say, the house is different without him. 

And my sister is here with her boys, which we are loving. I kinda feel bad, because I'm having a lot of bad days adjusting to my meds, and she's pretty much taking care of everyone in the house. She's been doing our laundry and cooking our meals and everything. If the whole idea of sister wives didn't skeeve me out, I would totally consider it. 

Meanwhile, remember when people had whole households that lived and work together? That sounds really nice to me. I would love to be the maid, or the laundry lady, or the nanny, or the doctor, or the cook... It's having to be all of those things every day that's hard.

And now, I'm going to go back to bed, because that's where I spend my life right now. Be jealous. I'm so glamorous.
