What the hell day is it?

I had off on Monday (to drive back from ‘sconnie) and it’s thrown me for a loop this week. I tried going to a meeting that was yesterday because my brain was fully convinced today is Tuesday. Annoying. Plus, my sinuses are on full attack. A coworker who pretty much has a pharmacy in his desk drawer gave me a cocktail of Sudafed and generic Excedrin. Needless to say, I still have a headache.

So, the weekend went by too quickly. It was awesome seeing my family. Seeing my Aunt Julie was rough. She looked a little better than I imagined she would, but it was hard watching her push the button on her IV drip of pain meds. She kept reaching back to her left side occasionally when the pain was getting unbearable. We were there for about 15-20 minutes before we left – she seemed glad – I’m sure she immediately went back to bed to lay down. I felt horrible we didn’t stay for longer, but knew she was struggling the whole time. I decided that we would be coming home for Easter so I can see her again. Her boys should be home then too, so I can see everyone. The next few months are going to be rough.

I have a weird, horrible feeling that this is going to be a bad year for my family. I know my aunt won’t last through this Christmas. Something tells me my grandma might go before 2008 is done too.

Enough sad talk.

However, right now I don’t have much more to add. I’ll try to cheer things up later.
