i should be sleeping

The kids have been in bed since 9:30. Chris went to bed at 11:30. He has to go fix some stuff in that house in Dublin tomorrow and he has to go early because the floor man is scheduled to be there sometime tomorrow morning. They can't get paid until he fixes the bs stuff the inspector failed them for. *sigh*

I took a 3 hour nap earlier so now I'm not really tired. I should probably go to bed anyways but I don't really want to. I know the kids are going to be up early though. *sigh*

We had subs for dinner and watched a little bit of tv. That's how our night went. Dawn called and left a message while I was sleeping but I never called her back. Gina called after she got off work to see if I had heard anything about grandma. I called Mama but she didn't call me back. Ricky did tell me that she came through the surgery ok but she had to have two pints of blood. And he said his dad said something about them "finding something" but he was on the cell phone and the reception was really bad so he wasn't sure what that was all about.

I really feel for my mom and dad right now. Both of their mothers have been really sick in the past month and they've been running back and forth trying to take care of stuff. Running from one hospital to the next, back and forth, day after day. Mama sounds so frazzled whenever I talk to her. That and trying to keep up with their business and their own health situation seems to be taking its toll. I keep trying to convince them they need a couple of days away but everytime they get in the position to do that, something else happens. :-/

And then add to that, she told me she was worried about me, health wise and the stress and she suspects that I am having problems with some other stuff... I don't want her to worry about me. I told her so the other day. She keeps telling me when things calm down, we should go to lunch and have a really long talk. She knows stuff is going on; she just doesn't know what. And right now with all the stuff she's dealing with, I won't tell her. I keep telling her everything is fine because I don't want her to worry any more than she already is.

I think I will go to bed now. Tired of sitting here
