Back To Business

it's 8:00 a.m. in the holy city of zefat. we are all busy trying to get the house ready for tourists. we survived the 24-25 hour fast which ended on tuesday night and went into work mode on wednesday.

i couldn't, exactly, jump out of bed yesterday. i was sore and dry. i stayed in bed until the afternoon. i then got up and started gathering the laundry. i had nine days worth of wash to do. the 'baby' has been sick and throwing up lately. the dogs have busy pishing on my beds. how absolutely, lovely!

i rearranged the clothes closets downstairs for the kids. i reattached some of the shelves that had been used to keep the dogs out of several of our rooms, for the past few years. sahar will be moving into an adjoining bedroom this winter with the advent of a new arrival. that's right, we are 'expecting' again. i say 'we' because we are all involved in this process. and, if you saw my bloated stomach, you'd think that i was the pregnant one.

a real estate agent came over to check out our premises. we took photos and set up props. we are all prepared to camp out together on one floor and rent the other two floors to make some cash. we are all hurting, financially, right now. the store had a very slow month and the kids are quite anxious to make some cash.

i had a builder come by to give me a quote for making a separate entrance for the studio apartment. that was last week and he never came back. there just isn't any income coming in right now. it's all about the $. i hate the enormous pressure that we're all under right now.

i have some red eye like infection going on right now and reading is almost impossible. of course, i ran out of eye drops, not that they have been so effective. my right eye is always burning. i think that i may have had a bells palsey blow up. my right cheek has had little feeling. here we go again.

i have been very busy with sahar, recently. he has championed 'terrible two's' to another level. oh please grant me the strength! he comes up here every day for his morning bottle. he will fling anything in his eye's presence at the dogs. it can be a shoe or some lego, or even a broom. he's fast. the dogs are traumatized. i have been a victim of his 'arm' quite often, too. are we having fun yet?

i haven't made it over to the senior's in a while, so i am hoping to get over there this morning. i have had a stomach bug two weeks in a row. it may be a reaction to the new remedy that i took. i have been a lot calmer about family issues lately, but i have been a lot less healthy, too. i think that the whole, recent, facial paralysis virus thing, is a result of the remedy. i need to write to my homeopath today.

i went to see my sister this week. it has been months, since our blow out. my niece and her family are in from india for the month. i finally got to meet my 9 month old grand niece. she is so lively! her older brother was more contained. he didn't remember me. he doesn't see me because i can't skype. i still haven't bought a camera. this normally, would have sent me into an emotional tail spin, but not so, now. i invited them over for a pool day. the only problem is that sahar is sick.

my sister and i hugged and kissed goodbye. it was a beginning. i still have issues. who doesn't. i still feel left out of the loop. but i have to learn to get over it. i have to focus on the good in my life. i have to stop having expectations. we all have to start loving freely. less judging and more loving!
