Just wanted to say "hello" before we start the school day. It is a lovely, perfect fall day outside. I love love love this time of year. The blue, blue sky, the crisp air, apple picking, (long sleeves to cover my flabby arms, lol). We had a little rain last night, and it seems to have cleared up a bit of the smoke. It’s actually only 62 degrees up here in our classroom; I guess I better shut the window!
I think I will take Kiki and go to the pharmacy before we start school. I am feeling a bit miserable…I have a hiatal hernia (that is, the muscle between my esophagus and my stomach doesn’t close up tight) so I have reflux pretty bad. It wasn’t really a big problem for most of my life, until I got pregnant…between all the puking and muscle loosening, it really made a minor problem into a huge problem. The only real ‘fix’ is a surgery that seems to cause as many problems as it fixes, so I have opted out of that for now. As long as I am on my medication, I’m okay…but again, is taking meds forever a solution, either? Here is the current problem…I ran out of my prescription at the same time T. got sick, so with all the money we spent on him, I couldn’t get it refilled. I was alright for a couple days, then just felt nasty for a few more days…but last nite…well, I don’t want to gross you out or anything, but I spent waayy too much time bowing before the porcelain god. And this morning my chest is just burning. Yikes, I can’t take it anymore!! Off we go then…..
