A Bump In The Road...

Things are getting better in some ways. The smoker downstairs is moving mid June, and we will be able to get into the ground floor apartment the end of May or early June. I told the manager we would be much happier there and she was fine with us moving... again.

They came in yesterday and sealed the wall openings, but the smoke still gets in. Right now I am keeping the balcony door open and although it is chilly, it is fresher. We can make this work short term I hope. Chloe is starting to cough - she has asthma - so keeping it clear is really important for her. Eric can't even come over for now, with his Cystic Fibrosis, it would not be good at all.

My head still hurts, feels like my brain is bruised. It's not as bad as it was Sunday night or Monday and I am grateful for that.

Tiffany isn't doing so good. She fell last night and now her whole body hurts. She tried to see a specialist this morning, but an insurance mix up canceled her appointment. She is going in this afternoon again. Prayers for Tiffany are appreciated. This is her last term and she can't mess up her graduation.

Yesterday was Tiffany's 23rd birthday. Her dad came over for cake. I was able to be okay with him. For the longest time I couldn't even be in the same room with him. But now I can be cordial and even a bit friendly. I would never want to be married to him again, but at least I don't think we are enemies any more.

My second ex-husband is selling the house. It was the only house that had ever been mine, even for just a few short years. I don't know at what kind of a loss, the next door neighbor is probably buying it for her snowbird friends. The house is actually a condo in a 4-plex. Ours was a middle unit and the neighbor is on the end next to it. It was really quiet and I loved that we were able to park in a carport right outside the patio, so it was easy to unload groceries and we never got wet (when it rarely rained) or scorched with the sun. It is amazing how much a carport keeps the car cooler. When it is 115+ in the sun, being just 100 is cool.

The girls are napping and grandma ought to be taking advantage of that and napping too.

My how our lives can be different from that which we thought we had in our younger days.
