Life in general.

I haven’t been posting much. I feel like a bad blogger. I guess it doesn’t matter much, though, since about 10 people read my blog! I have been updating my Twitter QUITE often, though, so follow me!

Things have been really crazy around these parts lately. I’ve been having a lot of fatigue/ dizziness/ headaches lately. Not so fun at work- especially when I sit under florescent lights and stare at a computer screen all day. By early afternoon every day, I end up sitting at my desk and crying. Good times!

I’m an actress! I’m in a play that my BFF is directing. It’s a small role, and all proceeds are going to support the Children’s Hospital, so it’s really worth it to me….. The downside? It makes for REALLY long days and gives me a lot less time to sleep at night. I’ve only been rehearsing 1-2 days a week, but after next week I will be there EVERY SINGLE NIGHT until the show closes in mid-August. My poor husband! (and his poor arteries! Every time he has to cook for himself, its deep fried something. I hope my doing this show doesn’t cause him to have a heart attack! My baby needs a daddy!)

Our Holiday weekend was really low-key. Everyone congregated over at my mom’s house and sat around and then we all went to fireworks. As much as I LOVE big celebrating on holidays, it’s really nice to have a quiet one every once in a while.

*****************

On a more somber note, my husband’s grandfather passed away yesterday afternoon. He was such a sweet, funny, kind hearted man- definitely my favorite of his grandparents. The last time I saw him was on Father’s Day, when we told them about the baby. He looked better than I had seen him look in a REALLY long time, and we were all joking around and talking about baby stuff.

He was 90 years old. He and his wife lived by themselves in a trailer until about 2 months ago, when they moved to a nursing home because she has been having a lot of back pain and can’t move herself around. He took care of her single-handedly for so many years! Did he finally let go because he knew she would be taken care of?

It’s going to be so strange to not have him around. He was an amazing man, and he will be greatly missed.

I'm so sorry for you loss. Thinking of you and yours...

If you're in your own (or a small) office, would you be able to turn off the fluorescents, and put on a desk lamp? Otherwise, I think it's about making sure you take frequent breaks to look away from the screen.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I hope you feel better soon! Good luck with the play. Take breaks throughout the day, if you can. Go get some fresh air. Mints really helped me. They make me feel so as queasy and gave me a bit of the fresh air feeling when I couldn't get out.
*HUGS*

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, thinking of you and your family.

Congrats on your play, I can imagine the long days will be exhausting though! With the nausea, mints help me a little so might be worth trying them like beautiful mess said.
