This past week has been super hectic, and I am so far behind on housework and yard work that I can’t even joke about it. I wasn’t even home a full day before our AC went out, again. This time it was the fan motor that went. I took a day to get the part in, so we had to say at my parents house. My husband was able to get it the new motor in quickly, but it still took a better part of the day for the house to cool off…being that it’s been hitting near/over 100 here. While we waited, we discovered a new ramen restaurant in Dallas called Wabi House. I’m going to post a review for them later because they totally deserve it. It was some of the best food we’ve had out in a good while, plus the waiter was probably the best we’ve ever had. It was excellent.
The rest of the week has been spent play catch up with everything, and it feels like I’ve barely made a dent. My husband should be off for two days starting tomorrow, so we are going to concentrate more on getting the ceiling in the living room fixed were the AC pipes were dripping, mowing the grass in the back (finally!), and making some sort of shade for the AC until.
In other exciting news, my daughter is now officially registered for school! She will be starting kindergarten. It’s going to take some getting used to not having her home all day. She’s been excited about it and we have been scrambling around like crazy trying to find the uniform pants in her size. Its apparently a popular size. We have a ‘Meet the Teacher’ night coming up in two weeks, so we will get to see her classroom and she cam meet some of the kids. I worry about her since she is more used to being around adults, but the councilor/admin lady said not to worry about that.
And now for the not so exciting news: I found out that I have a thyroid problem. It’s over producing and my levels are through the roof…but I’m not really showing any of the outward signs of it. In fact, all I really have is the racing heartbeat and high blood pressure. But the high blood pressure isn’t all the time, just when I’m really upset or stressed. The doctor also said that it might be contributing to my excessive migraines and insomnia too. For now, I’m waiting for someone to call to set up an appointment with a specialist. I don’t really know what to expect, how they will go about treating it, or what could be causing it. Has anyone ever dealt with this before?
