Face book was rather interesting today with those who were happy about the results and, well, those who were not happy about the results. Me? I am just happy that it is all over right now. There isn't much happening in the house this evening. I had a few lessons that were fun and the students are doing really well. Most of the students are choosing their Christmas Music at this time. Antoinette missed her lesson and I was worried. She called a few minutes ago. She had to work until 7:30 so she will come on Friday this week. I feel so much better now and that she is fine.
It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away. Before we now it, it will be Christmas and then the new year. I am not completely ready for it. I have 2 gifts totally finished. I have a few more to get. I will be getting them one a week until I am done. For the family, I will be getting the little ones something. (Miles, Elizabeth, Jayson, Warren, Esther, and Phoenix) I have ideas of what I am going to get. I will start the ornaments for my students this coming weekend. I have the fabric and now I have a new fabric pencil so I can copy the pattern on the material. I just have to count how many I need. I am anxious to get this project started because last time I sewed ornaments for the students, I waited until the last moment and well, I didn't finish in time so I had to get all the students something else. I am so not going to have this happen again. This year, I will start early enough.
I have been having trouble with my right now the past few days. It is really sore. I hope it improves in the next few days. Last night was one of the worst nights I think ever. I woke up with a stomach ache and it was upset. I took some gravol but it didn't seem to do much good. I think about 2 1/2 hours later I finally fell asleep. I hope to never repeat this at all. I have some problems every so often, but not like it was last night. I sure hope I don't have it again tonight.
My head isn't super bad tonight, but I must say it is medium bad. It was good enough during the lessons so that was good. I need to be able to function during lessons and usually I am able to function just fine. It is rare that I have to cancel a lesson because of a headache. I think in 3 years I have cancelled lessons only about 4 or 5 times due to Fibro or its co-conspirators. Of that, I am most thankful because if I couldn't teach, I would be in a bit of trouble with the financial end. I may not have a lot of students, but it is the little extra to help with bills not to mention it gives me something to do during the day. I know I need to rest, but I can't rest all the time.
I am trying to write on facebook everyday what I am thankful for. I only started a couple of days ago but I am going to try to keep it going. I am thankful and I know I am one blessed girl. I have a great support system, which not a lot of fibro people have. I am glad that I do and I try not to take the support system for granted.
