It is so Quiet 4-17

It is so quiet in the house now.  Yesterday, Heather B-T called to see if they could come for a few days while there power was out.  As I have plenty of room, I said "yes, no problem"!  So around 7:30 pm or so, the clan arrived to spend the next couple of days.  They went home earlier than expected because they now have power.  I enjoyed the company last night and today.  I am so glad that I was able to have enough room for them.  For some reason, their entire area of town was out of power.  They were expecting to have no power for another day but surprise!  Power is on so off to home they went.  Acer is so tired tonight.  Calli went to her house right after school where her grandmother was waiting for her.  Heather B-T and Acer waited for Bill to come and pack up the rest of their things.

I had my tummy scope yesterday at about 9:30 am.  I know have an ulcer.  Ugh, how on earth did I get that one?  He took some tissue at that time too to see if bacteria caused the ulcer, otherwise, I have no idea how I got it.  At least this does explain why the tummy has been giving me major issues.  I will have another one in 2 months to see if it is healing.  the pictures look gross to me.  I can see the hole in my stomach though in one of them.  Heather B-T was gracious enough to rearrange her schedule with the taking of children to school to be my driver and stay with me the whole time then drive me home.  I pretty much slept the entire day away.  I even went to bed early last night.  I was just so tired.  I got up at the usual noon today.

Tomorrow Breanna and Katie are meeting with their accompanist for their scholarship auditions on Saturday.  It was strange to have no lessons on a Monday since I usually teach a few lessons on Mondays.

I finished up Deema's song for the spring concert today.  I have not, however, finished or even started the Double Trouble.  I am almost positive that is on the other computer.  I plan to pull the computer out of the box and check it before I redo the Double Trouble.

I opened up the Dining Room curtains the other day.  There are two, yes two, holes in the screens so I can't open the windows until I get them fixed.  I plan to take them to the hardware in the next month to fix them.

My sink in the main bathroom has some rust spots.  It has caused a couple of leaks so far.  I got a kit to fix some of it.  I also have some paint to cover up the fix.  I sure hope it works because I cannot afford a new sink.  I just can't at this time.  I do think this should be a good thing at this time.  It has worked for us in the past so I am hopeful it will be a good fix again.

Tonight was NCIS night.  Bill pointed out that the woman who plays Hetty looks like Edna from the Incredibles.  I wonder if it is the same woman.  I will check it out.  No it is not.  As a matter of fact, the character is voiced by a man.  Definitely not Linda Hunt.  I love NCIS Los Angeles.   It is such a good show too.  Right now Law and Order SVU is on.

I have wanted to see the new show "Missing" but it apparently it is on Thursdays at 8pm while I am at church.  I will have to watch it online then.  I love Ashley Judd and bonus, Sean Bean is in a few episodes too as her husband!  What could be better?

Randomness for the day: Dr. Oz is finally talking about Fibromyalgia as a real illness.  It is about time!  He says that blood doesn't get to all the parts of the brain.  He talked about it on his talk show in 2 parts.  It was surprising because I thought before (from what I read) he didn't believe in it.  Anyways, this should help let people know about it.  I was rather happy about this.

I hope your day went well.  My tummy is rather quiet tonight (I pray it stays that way) and my head is a bit sorer than usual, but not enough to cause lots of problems so far tonight.


  1. Sorry to hear about your ulcer Heather. I hope you get it sorted out soon.

    It's good to know that fibromyalgia is starting to be taken seriously as an illness. God knows it's taken long enough.

  2. Hi, Heather and Kathy. It's good to hear about other women who live successfully with chronic pain. A friend and I just started a blog for mothers suffering from fibromyalgia and other painful disorders. We would love to have you stop by and let us know what you think. The website is http://myalgiamommies.blogspot.com/. We look forward to hearing your comments.
