Normally I do not like the rain, but it sounds so peaceful and serene that I’m glad that it’s raining. Or maybe because it’s knowing that I don’t have to go out in it and I’m comfortable and dry inside, half-sitting half-laying on my bed, typing up this post while I can look out my window at it falling. We’ve needed the rain – it’s been so hot and dry.
My mom’s shoulder has been hurting her for the last week, so she asked me this morning if I wanted to clean one of her houses with her. I went with her more because I know cleaning is hard on her, but the money is a nice little bonus as well. After we were done and on the way to the bank, my dad called from the hospital. He had had a check up and was told today he will have to have another surgery to place a port inside of him for chemo treatments. I’m not really sure on all the details. I’m glad they are doing it as a precaution, but it sucks that he will have to have another surgery in addition to the other two.
But he is still doing very well, which is more than I can ask for. I was speaking with my manager about it the other day and her daughter-in-law had colon cancer and underwent the same surgery that my dad had. After the surgery, however, the food in her stomach was not moving to her bag, it was just sitting there. So it became infected and she had to have the surgery again and she’s been in the hospital now for two weeks. My dad was in the hospital for four days.
I’m very thankful.
Today just feels like a rainy day. I’m really tired since I didn’t sleep very much last night. I went to bed early – around 10 PM – because I wanted to get up in the morning to run, but I didn’t even fall asleep until 2:30 AM. -.- I didn’t end up running since I was so tired and sore from playing tennis yesterday. It was wonderful, the first tennis I’ve played so far this summer. I haven’t been playing entirely enough!
I finally got everything sorted out with my travel blog – the huge, horrible headache of transferring everything. I just ended up not switching hosts. My first host was wonderful, I was just switching because of something minor and it really was not worth the effort. Lesson learned. I’ve been working on it yesterday and today, and I’m about half finished. I’m really excited to open it. I’m working on a sort of surprise for the opening, but I haven’t decided on the details yet.
I really need to go run some errands and do some shopping just for some little things. I need to get a sleeve/cover for my laptop since I’ve already managed to put a big scratch on the top of it. Dx This is why I can’t have nice things! I also need to buy some containers since I’m reorganizing my room, and some bobby pins and ponytails. I’m always losing both of them! Plus my nail polish stock has been running low. I’m thinking some bright colors for summer. But it’s so nice inside that I’ll probably push all of that to tomorrow. Oh procrastination, I thought we wouldn’t be friends after school was out!
I think that’s all for now. My tummy is grumbling and the leftovers I have from Applebee’s yesterday is calling my name. I’m going to eat my salad and catch up on all my favorite blogs and return some comments. A good day to do so – yay for not working until 6:00 PM tonight!
