Have you ever sat and wondered what goes thru some peoples minds? Well today I had the opportunity to do just that. I get a phone call today and it goes something like this......."Dose anyone in your family suffer from seizures or bipolar disorder?".....Well that's some question to throw at someone. I can't just answer the question without asking why. After asking why, I wished I hadn't. I found out that my nephew went to a Neurologist today for some symptoms that the Dr. feels are related to these disorders and now need some family history and further testing. He was in a car accident about three years ago and his mother thinks this all goes back to then. He was is a Ford Ranger in the jumpseat and someone pulled out in front of them and he flew from the back seat to the front and hit his head on the windshield. He has had trouble sleeping and such ever since then. One thing is, is that its sad that it has come to him being away at college in another state for him to be taken to the Dr. about it. His coach, trainers and team Doctors must be some really great guys to help him with all this. Let's just hope for the best with all of that.

My porch roof is coming along great. The shingles should be in tomorrow, so lets all hope that the rain passes us by so we can get the re shingling of the house accomplished. My amazing Hubby and R.C. worked on capping the wood on the porch today and putting up the soffit. Oh and J.C. came over from Marion to help also. It is looking mighty nice I must say. I am getting more and more excited all the time. I think this weekend R.C. and his dad are coming over to help with the shingling. I think that K.S. will be here also.

I have found something my all my daycare kids absolutely love and I never bought because I thought they sounded totally dumb. Well, the other day while I was shopping at my favorite store, the Amish "Bent and Dent Groceries", I came across some Cereal Straws. What kind of name is that? Cereal Straws? Well I got them for $1.00 per box so I bought three boxes and all I have to say is WOW. You get like 24 in a box and the kids love them and now ask for them all the time. And I have to say, they aren't half bad. We had the Cocoa Krispies and Apple Jacks Cereal Straws. I advise those of you who have thought, like I did, they were dumb must try them. They are good.

Well I went and visited my favorite place today. Well actually I am joking, it's not a favorite place at all. I went to see my Doctor about my feet, knee, back and basically all my joints. She ordered x-rays of my back and referred me to a Rheumatologist. Yippee Skippie. Besides the FibroMialgia she thinks I may have rheumatoid arthritis. Once again yippee Skippie. All I know is that I want to stop hurting.

Also took my Shadow dog to the vet today for a checkup and have his glucose tested. He weighed in at 145.6 and his sugar was 343! We can't seem to get it to stay down for anything. Poor dog I feel sorry for him. I wish there was a way that I could check his sugar daily and adjust it accordingly. The only way I found was to stick him in the inside of his upper lip and I am not too sure about doing that. My luck it would hurt him and he would react and accidentally bite me and my whole hand can fit in his mouth so he would probably bite it off. That would suck.

Well enough of my problems, I am off to relax and enjoy a night off.

I have never bought the cereal straws cause somehow they sounded messy, Have you met my kiddos. I guess I should run out there and see if you bought them all, I will have to go tomorrow if possible its dark now and they are closed.
