This was a good, but short week because of Monday's holiday. I felt like I was playing catch-up all week, but I'm happy to say I'm, for the most part, caught up.
My dad had a health scare yesterday. I thought for a while that it could be "the big one", but he's improved. I will say that his and my mom's days on this earth are not long, and I just want them to be comfortable and relatively happy. And that's all I care to say about that...
ANYWAY, in other silver liningness, I worked on getting our house back to my minimalistic ways since Chaco and Wolfgang took their stuff back to their dorms. One major hurdle was getting this giganto TV out of our rec room. It's about a 36" old style box that weighs a bunch of pounds.
Chaco and Wolfgang were home for a bit over last weekend, so we took advantage and had them help get it out of the basement. It now sits in the garage while we try to figure out how to get rid of it. I will gladly give it away to anyone who wants it. Know anyone??
I'm also happy to say that I've gone four straight days now without being stung by a bee. I definitely hope the streak lasts! I'm starting to feel a bit better, not quite 100%, but just about a quart low. I don't know what it is about the bee juice that has such an affect on me.
My hand is still not quite recognizable as one that belongs on the end of my arm. I'm a rather "veiny" person - side note: I once had a phlebotomist roll up my sleeve and exclaim, "Oh, it's like Christmas!". There are currently no visible veins on the alien fat right hand.
But it has improved, I can hold stuff now. The neck sting has mellowed to where it now just resembles a tentative hickey. But I'm still dealing with the itchies, so waaah.
My horoscope today said something about my friends sticking by me despite my shortcomings in the upcoming week. So... might want to prepare...
