Not a school day and yet Kiddo was up at 6AM. Not enough coffee in the world to deal with being up on a holiday.

*hugs* navigating family is tough.

So so tough. But luckily Grandma understands, or at least is trying. She didn’t try to talk me out of it and didn’t make one unkind remark. And after I left, I went to Auntie’s and she let me cry on her shoulder, which I really needed. I figure in another ten or twenty years it will get easier.

Hugs to you and kiddo.

*hugs* Thanks!

I must applaud Kiddo and how his sneakiness is improving. I woke up this morning to him curled up in my desk chair with my phone watching gaming videos. Now he knows he’s not supposed to get my phone without permission, which he did not have.

But the lengths he took to prevent waking me up? Impressive. He was extremely quiet coming into my room, I didn’t know he was in here until I woke up. He put the damn earbuds on the phone so the volume from the video wouldn’t wake me. AND, and this is what makes me laughs and impresses me, he MUTED the video player on the computer cause I fell asleep watching Gilmore Girls.

HE DIDN’T WANT TO RISK THE MENU MUSIC ON LOOP WAKING ME UP!

HE REMEMBERED THAT SOMETIMES MUSIC FROM MENUS CAN WAKE ME UP!

HE TOOK MEASURES TO PREVENT THAT JUST SO HE COULD WATCH HIS GAMING VIDEOS!

My son, ladies and gentlemen. One day he will rule the world.

Today has been another one of THOSE days. I’m just, ugh I don’t even know what I am anymore. I am going to go cut the watermelon I bought cause Kiddo wanted some watermelon and then I’m going lay in bed and read fanfiction and watch Gilmore Girls.

Kiddo: Why don’t you have any boy friends?

Me: What?

Kiddo: If you don’t have any boy friends, you can’t ever get married. And I want you to get married so you won’t be alone.

Me: Where did this come from?

Kiddo: YOU HAVE TO GET MARRIED MOMMY!

Me: I might…one day.

Kiddo: Okay but you better cause you can’t be alone all your life.

Me: I’ll remember that.

I’m so glad that Uncle’s alright, hun. Been thinking about you all night.

*hugs* Thanks. Now that I know he’s okay I can destress. Haven’t been able to focus on anything at all.

I forgot how much I enjoyed watching Taylor make Luke lose his mind. ITS BEEN TOO LONG SINCE I’VE WATCHED GILMORE GIRLS!

Brownies, Gilmore Girls with a spattering of Stargate, and a cocktail. Those are tonight’s plans.

Uncle is okay. Auntie took the van to go get him to bring him home. No infections or anything. His catheter was blocked and it was causing him a lot of pain. The seizure probably came from the stress of that, it’s happened before. But the doctor cleared him, they changed the catheter, and they aren’t admitting him. So it’s way better than we were assuming, which is a good thing. Usually when he has seizure episodes and has to go to the hospital, he’s there for a few days.

Oh no! Good vibes sent your way!

We think that he may have a kidney infection or an UTI cause those sometimes will cause him to seize. But he was also complaining about some pain, something he almost never does, so we called for an ambulance. When Uncle complains of pain then it’s usually serious.

They are already on the way, I left after the paramedics arrived so Kiddo wouldn’t be in the way. I just saw them drive past the house. I’ll know more later when Mom calls with an update.

Waiting on the ambulance, Uncle is having to go to the ER. He’s having seizures and stuff and the medicine we have at home isn’t working. Gonna be a looooong weekend.

Today has been a pan of brownies and a dozen chocolate chip cookies kind of day.

Amazing what a full night of sleep can do to a person.

Well I slept fairly well. Woke up once and took a couple hours to get back to sleep. But I did and I slept after getting Kiddo on the bus. I feel fantastic. We’ll see how long that lasts.
