I'm tired. I am not sure if I'm legitimately not getting enough rest or if it is 3rd trimester fatigue or even Gestational Diabetes. Mom (& Serena, I hope) are taking me on Monday for my 3-hour Glucose Test. I've been advised that I may NOT leave the building and that, in fact, I will not be allowed out of sight of the lab techs. Wow! Do you think they have much problem with pregnant women cheating their GD tests? I mean, it is in the baby's best interest to know
if you have it and take appropriate measures to reduce the chances of side effects.
I am so proud of Elmo. He came to work Tues - Thur. It nearly killed him to do it each day. Today is Friday and he just couldn't do it again. He comes to work and is hurting so bad by the time the sort is over. So he has been working short days on some days. Then he goes home and takes something for the pain and is knocked out. Then he can't sleep at night, so he is overly tired when it is time to go to work. I feel for him. But he has been back all week and his previous absence is "excused" I guess, so they are considering this his first of three allowed unexcused absences. Still... I worry about him. Ten more days and he will have been trying to pass this stone for two
months. Mom gave me a suggestion of where else (medical) to take him that wouldn't charge. I've been so busy with move stuff, though... I haven't tried to get him an appointment. I am sure a part of me just hopes he'll pass it anyway and that will be the end of it. If not sooner, I'll be making arrangements after we get moved... though I know we'll then be busy unpacking. We don't have a lot of stuff, so we should do pretty well.
My brother is also going to be moving closer to my mom. I'm looking forward to having us all so close together AND I'll be closer to Veronica, which was also part of the point. I'll be in a better neighborhood, too, so I just feel like she'll be safer when she is with me.
We're moving in 5 days. Yow!
My mother needs a better phone. Anyone have an old phone they don't use anymore? I'm positive
that any old phone any one of my friends has lieing around would be better than the hunk of junk phone my mother is using. It needs to be compatible with T-Mobile, but I can check on that myself.
Today we're taking both
of Elmo's cats to an in-home pet rescue sort of place. This girl offered to take them for us. Our new lease doesn't even allow for a pet deposit. They do NOT allow pets. We didn't know this until we went to sign the lease. I have been worried that Elmo would regret getting rid of Sam, but he really gave it a lot of thought. He worries a lot about the cats tripping me and later tripping our toddler. Sam really has been running over to get in front of me when I come out of our room, so it is a valid concern.
We watched Knowing
last night. We liked it. ( spoiler warning )
In totally other news, the last few times I've seen Joe he has seemed... off. Like something is weighing on him or he could simply be avoiding eye contact. I'm a little worried about him, but totally understand that it is none of my business. I texted him a Happy Birthday note on his birthday, but never heard anything back. Meanwhile, Britt is actually speaking to me (pleasantly, even!) lately. That has been a pleasant change.
I think that just about covers it. No wonder I felt the need to purge all that... there was plenty to say!
