Sweaty and sick

Happy Saturday!

It's been a long week.

Still sick, but had to muster the energy to work in the office Wed - Fri.

Yesterday I went from meeting to meeting and didn't set foot outside all day. When I finally left for the day I walked into a wall of heat! It was 90*!

I didn't even realize it was going to get so hot - Immediately soaked in sweat.

I am trying out a new deodorant that is aluminum free because I read that the aluminum in deodorant can mess with your hormones and who needs MORE hormonal influences on their body if they can avoid it?!?!?

The new deodorant keeps me from stinking, but I sweat like a star athlete! I literally have sweat rings on my shirts. Which is gross and I'm having hard time getting use to that wet feeling in my pits, but on the plus side I think my hormone issues have improved somewhat. Placebo effect? maybe, but who cares if I am feeling an improvement.

Went to the High School Graduation last night. Colton's girlfriend graduated.

Yes, this is a new girlfriend. He and the other one broke up back in Feb. She was a nice enough gal, but definitely wasn't right for him. Not that you could have told hm that. He had to figure that out on his own, which he finally did (thankfully).

Anyhow, the new gal who we all think is a wonder, is a a foreign exchange student from Serbia. She is 18 and speaks FIVE languages, a piano prodigy and just a neat person all around.
She leaves to go back to Serbia in one month, then going to a college in Rome this fall. Colton is already planning a European vacation end of the summer to go see her.

The Graduation was great. Amazing that just a year a go I was stressing/bawling over Colton graduating. And last night Chyann reminded me over and over that she will be graduating in just four short years - class of 2016. eesh.

No big plans for the weekend.
I've got a baby shower to go to and a snot load of house work/laundry to catch up on.
It's going to be 90* again today and the garden is calling as well - got to get it ready for planting next week.

Have a good one :)

ps - no other weird incidents or visitors - whew

My son was dating a girl for YEARS... and every time I thought of her as the potential mother to my grandchildren, I shuddered.

But she broke his heart. Another sad thing for a mom.

Now he's dating someone who treats him nicely and they're very happy. I won't be surprised if she's the one, considering the first time I saw her photo I had a 'psychic flash' and said to myself that I was looking at my future daughter in law.

Rest. Rest. The housework will still be there when you're feeling better.
Trust me on this one. I'm older than you and therefore have great wisdom.

ps.. hormones suck.

Wet pits. That is kind of yucky but I have also heard about that kind of deoderent. I still use that "wrong" kind but I use it only every few days.

Hope you feel better soon.

I cannot go without deodorant for more than several hours. I sweat and stink like a hockey player. The only one that does kinda work is the one that takes the skin off your pits. nice. So I stick to the normal kind.

I hope you are finally feeling better. Lots of people are suffering from high pollen counts.

So Colton has a new girlfriend? Oh boy, one month will come up very prepared. Things might get emotional for awhile! I dated an Australian guy back in college and it brings back sad memories!!!

Love your Iris pic - it is beautiful. Keep waiting for you to update your main pic - poor cows look so cold and dreary! Our kids and their love lives - I think Taylor is feeling a little smothered by her "flavor of the week" (well they have been going together 6 months so can't call it that anymore!!). He's treats her really good and spoils her but is a pretty negative person. Is Krissy closer to you now?
