Today is my baby brother, Andrew's birthday! He is one year, one month, and one day younger than me. We think it is very cool how that happened. No, Mom didn't plan it. As a matter of fact, Mom wasn't really planning children at all, but God had other thoughts and plans for her! She liked to say we all just arrived. Also, never once did my mother ever say she was sorry she married my father no matter how bad the marriage turned out. Not once, EVER. She would say she was glad she married him because if she hadn't, she would have us and we were the best thing that ever happened to her. Talk about a great mom. My father was a horrible person at the end of their marriage and put her through torture and other bad things, yet she says she is glad she married him? Wow, that to this day still blows my mind. Mom said the three happiest days of her life were the days we were born. It is so nice to know how loved we were and still are because I believe she is loving us from Heaven too. I don't think that love ends because the person goes to Heaven. I made sure that the last 5 years or so of her life that she knew how loved she was. I told her everyday (even if I was upset with her for some reason) that I loved her. I wanted her to remember that. I believe she did. I really do think so.
This year for Mother's Day I am picking up my friend, Donna for church and then brunch. I changed my profile picture to a great picture of mom for Mother's Day. I thought she deserved to have her picture on display. Mom was so awesome, she just was. I am glad though, that many of my friends think they have got the best moms. Well, I HAVE the best! he he he!
Kids say the darnest things. Jillian noticed that I had a hole in my shirt. I had forgotten about that but it is there. I also have paint on my shirt too. Jillian and Brooke are learning a new hand position with several new notes. They are doing pretty well, but we have a bit of work to do. Aubrey has her spring concert song totally memorized. I am so thrilled about that! I just love these girls.
I am planning to go to bed early again tonight. My goal is to be in bed between 10 and 11 pm instead of 12 or 1 am. Tomorrow will be a big day because I have several lessons plus a make up with the lovely Rachel! I am excited to see the lovely girl since I haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. I miss my students when they are absent. Like Breanna, she has been absent for 2 weeks. So far, it looks like she will be here tomorrow of which I am glad. She is singing and playing the piano at the same time for the concert. Breanna is going to sing and play "I Can't Help Falling in Love with You". She is doing a wonderful job on it.
I called the tummy doctor again to see if results of the biopsy is in. It is STILL not in. It has been 2 1/2 weeks now. I had the scope done on the 16th of April and it is the 9th of May so you would think it would be here by now. I am not expecting too much from it because I already know that I have an ulcer. It is just a matter of is it caused by bacteria or medicine or stress. I would say probably medicine but there isn't too much I can do about it.
I am watching Cold Case. This episode is about a father who was killed shortly after they were released from the internment camps in California for the Japanese and the Americans of Japanese descent. It is so hard to understand why the government would do such a thing. This is where part of my nightmare about being sent to a camp comes from. It wasn't just the camps in Germany and Poland but the camps here in our country. Thankfully, they closed them and we don't have them any more.
I have been rather tired this week, a bit more than usual for some reason. I am not sure why. My head pain is the normal pain same with the rest of the pain. I have more trouble with the fatigue part of Fibro than I do with the pain mostly. I do know I am so tired because bodies were not made for continuous day in day out all over pain. I don't take sleeping pills anymore because they were too expensive and they gave me nightmares. I just take Tylenol PM or Advil PM, whichever I have on hand. Sometimes, I have to take a couple doses before I get any sleep. I think that is why I spend so much time in bed.
I do hope you had a good day. I am going to watch some more TV for a while then try to get some sleep.
