Well, things got so stressful this semester I disappeared online from everywhere. I finished the semester with 2 A-'s and a B+ ironically I missed the 3rd A- by 1/2pt, 1 A by 1/2pt, and the other A by 1 pt. So if any of you know how frustrating missing a better grade by so little is you have an idea how I feel right now. I have a 3 month old for crying out loud, I had an emergancy c-section at the begining of the semester you would think that would buy me enough slack for the 1/2 point grades at the least. But nope. I get absolutely no slack on anything except turning in a few assignments the begining of the semester. Oh well, I can live with that.
Alexander is doing really well. I got professional pics of him with his sisters and posted digital images of them on his webpage. His reflux is being treated and he is a much happier baby now. There were a few weeks when I bawled right alone with him.
I on the other hand am flaring- not just one issue at a time either. The fibro is acting up, the lupus is flaring, the RA is flaring, and my psoriasis is flaring as well. The psoriasis is the worst even though it is only a 3in patch simply because it is in a very very delicate place and that place is not somewhere a woman can itch around anyone except her husband and even then it is embarrassing. Yeah, I got psoriasis is the oddest place. I wish it was my head acting up cause then ppl would only think I have lice if I itched it, as it stands if I itch I would be labeled perverted or disgusting. Such wonderful choices.
The last week of this month will be stressful and wonderful at the same time. I get 4-5 days with the girls visiting with us. Then unfortunately we have to make the yearly treck to Virginia. It might not be so bad but I have to see the mother in law from h^!!.
Well, I need to go cuddle my little man. Hope everyone is doing well. I just need some more uninterrupted sleep. Something hubby said he would see to it I get this weekend. How wonderful to have a man who is willing to mix bottles, change nasty diapers, and do midnight feedings.
