LifeThis week has been so crazy that it's hard to believe that we are only one week into the new year. Our daughter and grand baby moved out last week, which I had mentioned, and that brought on a fury of disorganization, game planning, and regrouping. Our grand-toady, is having a hellish time adjusting to the move. She is just a couple weeks shy of 18 months, so I think we can all imagine that after living with us for all that time and then making the change has caused some anxiety. She misses us and we miss her. Thankfully she lives very near by and is still visiting four or five days out of the week while her mother is at college, and spent the night Saturday for a lovely time.
My sciatica is just a bitch and I am starting to just get really pissed off about it. Have tried every angle that I know of doesn't include a knife. I had a mild case a long time ago, but this is way different. Anyone ever have severe and chronic sciatica? I would love a tip or two about how to manage.
For the first time in years I found myself trying to read too may books at the same time. It's all of these challenges and read-alongs that I had a problem saying no to. Hopefully I will find my groove.
I just started watching The Gilmore Girls from the beginning. This is my first go, since I generally hate anything that is too pop culture, but this series is amazing! I should have listened to so many of you. I have seen it all over your blogs. Well, at least I can can binge watch now.
