The moral of the story must be that messies need to have OCD friends! My OCD friend (my best bud!) helped me with some organizing and cleaning a couple years ago. Unfortunately we have so litte storage here that it was't long before it started again (not to mention my husband is a messie too). I am confident that things will get better.

My vent for today is, STUPID KIDNEY STONES!!!!!!!!! I figured if I yelled at them they might take the hint. I had been having fairly mild kidney stone pain throughout the week. Tylenol and hot baths were enough to ease the pain. I knew what was coming though, and I prayed it wouldn't happen. Thank goodness that for the most part the really bad pain didn't hit earlier yesterday or it could have been really horrible. (I had a couple very sharp stabbing pains on the way to Columbia in the morning). Yesterday was James's last official day of school (they can go next week to finish any projects, and James will go). For his last day they allowed me to go with him. I was only allowed to stay in class until their break time, then I had to go to a lounge area. I enjoyed meeting his teacher and his fellow trainees. In the lounge area I checked my email and DC on my laptop, and I read a little. They let me eat lunch in the cafeteria with James, then since all but two other students were gone, I went back to James's class with him. He worked on his class project, and I worked on my laptop. That was when the pain started to get bad. I was able to hide it pretty well until the two others left, but then it started to get unbearable. James wrapped things up as quickly as he could and we went back to his dorm room. While he changed clothes I lay in his bed crying, moaing, and groaning. In the car I tilted my seat at an angle that was the least uncomfortable, turned on the seat warmer, and I finally started to feel better and was able to fall asleep (I hadn't been able to sleep the night before, so I needed it anyway). The seat warmer and nap helped a lot and I felt much better the rest of the day. (Edited to add, make that the seat warmer, nap, and 3 extra strength Tylenols helped! LOL).

I had hoped (though did not expect) to be pain free today. No such luck, but it seems to be easing again now.

venting about the weather. we have way to much of it. 104 here now. another record breakers.

am sick of heat.keeps me from baking or doing much of anything. i have air conditioner on . and fans everywhere. it is still to hot in house.

did not cool off much last night. more of the same tomorrow.

sure glad i am not at the fair. all that cement and heat. would make me sick.

very low humidity, creating a severe fire hazard. we have been here before with a very bad scene.

send some cooler weather , ok?

babe

oh my gosh wild fires are so scary. we had big time fires last year. holding our breath this time.

haven't seen the news today, so didn't know about fires in va. or here for that matter.

One thing that may give some relief is to wet a shirt put it on and blow a regular bladed fan on yourself.
