Janna, enjoy your free weekend. Use it to the full - do absolutely nothing!
Kjs, I hope difficult child doesn't meet up with those mean kids tonight. I've always believed that when someone says, "Nobody likes you," it's their way of trying to justify their own negative opinion and blame it on everyone else. Cowards and bullies.
Smallworld, I hope you stay safe in the vicinity of the hurricane. I hope it's a larger airport you're heading for - we learned our mistake in New Zealand, booking at small airports can leave you stranded. Fingers crossed for M, that the Zyprexa holds her together.
Fran, enjoy your time with easy child. They grow up so fast and then they're gone.., and difficult child - we were surprised at difficult child 1, also, when he began travelling into Sydney to meet friends or go to college classes there. He went from being very unsure of himself and where to go, to being able to navigate his way around with ease and confidence. Wonderful to se.
Christine, the sleepover sounds fun. And for you this weekend - maybe you and Janna should get together and throw your own pyjama party, just the two of you. Congrats to difficult child, too.
LDM, that sounds like a major sound & light show you had last night. We get them like that here sometimes, because we're a tiny little village stuck in the middle of bushland and water, we attract storms. We count the seconds between the boom and the flash - if it is less than two seconds, we go light candles, lanterns or whatever, because we often lose the power.
I saw the doctor again today (different one). This one kept asking ME what we should do - like, should I have another antibiotic shot? I mean, that's what I wanted to know too! Still, I got my test results. Not great. I gave up on the GP and rang the specialist - he's out until Monday, but the nursing sister rang back. We talking things through, she slotted me in to see the specialist on Monday morning, said if it gets worse to get to hospital. Meanwhile drink lots of water, take things quietly.
easy child & BF1 arrive tomorrow, then we're going to lunch on Sunday at Centrepoint's revolving restaurant for their buffet lunch - easy child's 21st birthday dinner. Beads rattling, please, that I'm well enough to go. It seems almost secondary to ask for clear skies - Sydney had a bad fog this morning, I can imagine little worse than being at the top of Centrepoint Tower, in heavy fog - on the news tonight you could see the 'bucket' at the top, where the restaurant is, sticking up above the pea soup. "On a clear day you can see forever..." but with no scenery there's no frame of reference, you might as well be looking at a blue wall with a fluffy grey carpet!
Enjoy your Friday, everyone.
