Nervous Nellie

My daughter has been gone since noon to the Great Escape.  She has gone with family and her brother but they have never taken care of her and her diabetes before.  I have heard that she is fine and having fun but I can't help but be nervous.  She is going to spend the night at my nieces.  
I have been fighting a head cold.  Thanks honey for the sweet gift you gave me!  He made my daughter a wooden bed frame for her room.  It has a solid bottom so all kinds of crap can't migrate under it.  He did a really nice job on it.  Looks like something you could buy at a furniture store.  
I am really tired.. waiting for them to call me that they got back ok and make sure Sarah gets her night time insulin. I know I'm a worry wart but it is hard.

My daughter

Yesterday I took Sarah her pediatrician to re examine using medication for ADD with Sarah.  She put her on Concerta.  A meeting has been held at the school which I attended.  Mostly all the teachers agree that Sarah just seems to sit there and stare blankly into space with an expressionless face.  She is very unorganized and very angry and difficult at home.  She will also be getting counseling soon, I hope.  I think my step-son needs it too.  I will not discuss the reasons here as it is way to personal.  I think he has ADD too with some hyper mixed in.  It took him well over an hour to do an assignment which should of only taken 15 minutes due to him being distracted by everything and everyone. We had to remind him countless times to go do his homework.  He also has unusual behaviors when he plays video games.  He hops up and down from a sitting to standing position repeatedly and makes a strange gesture in front of his face with his hands if over excited.  He is horribly clumsy and constantly falling or tripping.  I think he should get some testing done too.  I personally could use some counseling to help me deal with the chaos and bad behavior at home.  I feel like I could loose it at any time!

Lost more weight!

I guess the only real side benefit to being in this funk is that I don't eat as much.  I weighed myself after breakfast today and the scale said 190!  So I've lost 13 lbs so far.  I can see the difference when I look down at my tummy.  The skin is looser.  I have been feeling a little better.  I've gotten up and done some household work.  My husband has been running a wire to the shed.  His friend is helping him.  He is a contractor and knows what he is doing.  It has a breaker set up in it so if anything goes wrong it will flip the breaker.  So the man cave will now have electricity and heat.. LOL.  I will never see my husband again.  
I've really been in a dilemma about what to do about our dog.  He has a severe skin disease and I can't afford to keep taking him to the vet.  I don't know whether to find him a new home like a rescue for his breed or have him put to sleep.  He scratches and chews himself till he bleeds.  If I re-home him I fear someone will try to turn me in because the dog looks horrible and he stinks fiercely.  The vet told us it is difficult to treat once it gets to the stage he is in.  Any advice people?  
I have finally gotten two payments for unemployment, except it hasn't been deposited in my checking acct yet.  That figures! I'm hoping we will get it Monday.  The bills are so far backed up.  All our animals need shots.  It is just so frustrating.  Any day now I'm waiting for the car to get repossessed.  We have been making payments but are behind.  I know everyone is tired of hearing me whine.  But it is my blog and I shall whine if I wish too!  :)
Well as usual I will leave with something nice to look at.  Ishy kitty.  Her real name is Angel but I call her Ishy.  Short for kittenish.  Here she is helping me arrange the items I got in the mail yesterday for free!  I send away for free items from companies.  What floored me was the full size coffee sample from Green Mountain!  They even sent a mug and a sticker!  How generous!  Good coffee too.  I should send it to Dad from Dad's Tomato Garden.

What is in my head.

I am suffering from complete physical and mental  exhaustion.  
Someone is shooting a shotgun in the woods.
I went to the barn and mucked and watered.
My husband and I have found #500 geocaches in 4 1/2 years.  No, that is not a lot.  Some cachers find that many in a month!
I need to help my daughter with her homework .
I am suffering from complete physical and mental  exhaustion.  
I need to go to the Dr. and I have no health insurance.
I love my family but I can't handle the chaos.
The fall colors are beautiful.
Winter is coming.
