Hey, I'm back! After finally getting a doctor to listen to me, things have cleared up for now. I still tire easily but other than that, life is good.

Today Breanna went to a youth retreat in Oshkosh and it snowed all day of course. But she called to let us know she made it. I will worry until she is home safe and sound tomorrow.

Pete sorted laundry today which was a big help. The house really needs a good cleaning since I was out of commission for six weeks. Luke has taken over a couple of Bree's chores. He is always willing to help. He is also reading Calvin and Hobbes which he found in Breanna's room.

I finally sent in my next article to the paper. It was a tough one because I wrote about the day I decided to stop driving for good. I really miss it. If we ever move again, it will be closer to a bus stop or behind a superstore.

I got invited to a stem cell seminar on retinal degenerative diseases in Madison. Turns out it is during the week the kids are on spring break so we are going to go! I have to send my brother-in-law an e-mail so he knows we will be town. We also have to get the dog into the puppy hotel which he seems to do well in. He gets to play with all the other dogs. It will be nice to get out of town for awhile.

Nice to be back.

This was the longest month of January I have ever endured in my life!!!! I don't want to go into details too much other than to say that the 'time of the month' has lasted more than a month (day 33) and for a couple weeks it was so heavy I could not leave the house except for when I went to the doctor. We are trying several things to stop it but so far I still have it.

But, I did get out Thursday night. I had a meeting and even curled my hair. Last night Pete took us all out to Chili's which just opened about a mile from our house. We lucked out and arrived before the rush which was pretty good for a Friday night.

I realized I forgot to give Luke his medicine yesterday before school when 1. he had eaten his lunch and 2. he sat on his head on the couch which he does when he has not had his meds.

Today it is supposed to be warmer. We plan to do a cardboard run...other than that not much except church on Sunday. Pete has vowed not to work at all this weekend.
