fellow parents! It appears I'm up for the rest of the night....ah well I got in 3 and a half really good hours of sleep. This sleep thing will get better - I just know it. husband & I have a couple of errands to run this morning before he heads out to visit wm. He's not looking forward to the wm visit as our boy is on restriction for various & sundry "antics" he pulled last week. I keep thinking wm needs his one passion that will keep him out of trouble. We just can't find it. I, on the other hand, because of various medications am not going far from a bathroom - GP ordered a diuretic for me to lower my BiPolar (BP) (all steroid side effects) & get rid of this water retention. Ewwwwww - sorry too much information this early in the morning. So during my time of "confinement" I'm sketching out a potential still life for my niece's kitchen as a wedding gift. I've pulled her main colors into it. My sister emailed me a picture of her kitchen with her dishes & other colors. Wish me luck - only have a little over a month to do this painting. kt is due home from respite between 3 & 4. She appears to be having fun - no goofy episodes or poor choices. Linguine & clam sauce for dinner with a big old salad & a baguette. Simple, fast & easy clean up. Have a good day, my friends. Find some time for yourselves today; the dust & vacuuming will be there tomorrow. I hope all your difficult children are in good form, your problems easy to solve & all in all the day is pleasant for you & yours. Find one reason to smile & hold that to you throughout the day. I choose chocolate. That was easy.
