First I will start with my latest Civil War Diary block. I made this one late last night. I know it looks like it should be put together differently, but this is how it is in the quilt. Very easy block and didn't take very long.
Now on to my story of the day... I am sooooooo ashamed!!! As most of you all know that I have been sick due to my thyroid and this new medicine that I am on makes me so tired and I want to sleep alot during the day. So needless to say, my house is a total mess. I had been cleaning a little here and there on it but everything just seemed to be piling up on me. So Mom came out the other day and said "How about I come out in a few days and we jump in and clean your house?" So you know my house had to look bad or she would not have said anything. We decided to start on it this morning. I thought I would try to clean some before she got out here. I started with my refrigerator and by the time Mom called I was crying! I can't believe that I let everything get this bad. Honestly, I was ashamed for Mom to see all of that stuff. So she hung up and was here within 5 minutes! First of all, she gave me a big hug and a speech about she knew that I had not had any energy and it was all okay that we would get everything cleaned back up and in order.
Now I am 36 and my Mom is 54. My Mom can work circles around me!!! She doesn't sit down!!! I am soooooooooooooooooooooooo tired right now that I hurt every time that I move! I thought about going to take a hot bubble bath but I would probably have to yell for Richard to come and get me out of the bathtub!!! We still have alot more to do, but we cleaned out the refrigerator, freezer, stove, oven, all the dishes, microwave and all the small appliances, scrub brushed around the wall edge of my kitchen floor and mopped it. Oh and we cleaned the ceiling and light fixtures and that was just in the kitchen. We still have a ton more in there to do, like cleaning out all the cabinets.
We moved on to the living room. Cleaned the ceiling and ceiling fan, moved the furniture and vacuumed under everything. Cleaned the ceilings in the hallway and bathroom, scrubbed every surface known to mankind in the bathroom and done 3 loads of laundry. After all of that it still looks like a bomb went off! She is coming back out in a few days so that we can finish up!!!
I think the thing that bothers me the most is, she is my Mom, I should be doing this for her!!! I know she has to be tired too, but everytime that I would say something today about being ashamed, she would just look at me and say something like " I love you and you have nothing to be ashamed about"
Anyway on to some better news!!!!! The doctor's office called this morning about some of the tests that I had done over the past week. The nurse said that most of my tests had came back better than they had expected! I'm not sure what they were expecting but I guess the radiation had helped. I have to continue on this thyroid medication and I don't have to go back until the middle of June. I hope when I go back they will adjust this medication.
That's all for tonight, I think I am going to attempt the bubble bath!!!!! If you don't hear from me tomorrow, you know that I didn't make it out of the tub!!!!!
