My voice is coming back but it feels like someone ran over my chest with a steamroller. Hopefully by tomorrow I’ll be much better. I can’t breathe today so it’s like trading one yucky thing for another. :(
I’m leaving for Florida in the morning. Marshall will be coming home from South Carolina in the morning. I won’t see him until Monday. He didn’t think he was going to get to come home for quite a while. I’m so happy he will be here for two huge reasons: Cain has college registration this Saturday, AND he’ll be home for my little Kookie PooPoo. :) I didn’t want to have to leave her at the kennel when I’m gone. She’s SO attached to us, and vice versa.
FINALLY I have a flash! Yay! I haven’t had one since I’ve been using digital cameras. I’m so excited. It came today and I think I tackled the UPS man. I can’t be sure. He was gone when I woke up from fainting and the box was beside me. :D Here it is (it was my Mother’s Day present):
Ain’t it pretty?! Yes, I think so too.
Ok, well I’m going to bed.
Oh, I talked to my Mom for an hour today. One of the best conversations we’ve ever had. Know why? Because I was open and honest and told her how I REALLY felt. I didn’t hold back and we TALKED and she said, “Rachel, I’m an alcoholic and I’m a drug addict and I don’t know how to get well.” I couldn’t believe she said that. She’s never said that before. She’s never openly admitted those things.
Who knows…I want to talk more on this later but I’m under the influence myself: TheraFlu and that Vicks VapoRub Sinus thingie that you shove up your nose and breathe in. ;)
