((())) Sounds like you and yours have more than a plate full. Will be thinking of you and sending you positive vibes.

You are right, hard to read. And would definitely be hard to take in real life. That is just so much going on for one family.

HollycrapAtillathatsucks!

So sorry to hear the problems Big Kid. finding a quality assisted living place is a full time job! Oy.

Little Guy's grant and the ball dropping is just plain crazy. Shame on our sorry ass government for letting that happen.

The dog-- Yikes. I hate vet bills :-(

And your cardio check-up- I'm surprised they didn't admit you directly to ICU with all the stress you've been under. I yiyi. Enough already.

Hang in there my friend. I'm cheering you on as always!

Man, I feel as if I've read that in one breath, and now I'm out of breath! Sorry about the kids (Big, Little, Asspiring) and the pooch, hope things turns out for the best for everyone, and don't lose your humor, it's getting you thru it all! *hugs*

Rootietoot said...

Oy. I swear I'd bring you a casserole if it weren't such a long drive.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Holy smokes--I'd send a masseuse to follow up Rootietoot's casserole if I lived closer.

Sarah said...

I hope you find some RR soon.

Jeanie said...

Too much, too fast for anyone. Please do the best you can to take care of yourself through it all.

Heather said...

I agree with stinkypaw....I felt like I read that in one breath. I need glasses now too. LOL I hope the summer slows down for you. Hope your heart can keep up with it all.
