I haven’t been feeling like my normally cheery self the last few days. Not even close …
I’ve had two colds or perhaps one loooong cold almost all year! Out of the 10 weeks that we’ve had so far in 2010 I’ve only had two that were cold free. That sucks! I do think I’m finally starting to recover from this latest cold though so maybe in a few days I’ll be done with this virus once and for all.
We’ve also continued to have trouble with our awful renter neighbors. They were supposed to be kicked out by the Sheriff on March 2nd … but as I suspected the home owners daughter in law didn’t do all the paperwork correctly so now they’re going to be evicted by the sheriff on the 23rd. Hopefully they pack up and move on their own this weekend or the next as I think if it comes down to a formal eviction things are going to get nasty. These people are just bad evil nasty people.
I’ve been more stressed the last few days because the renter neighbors – who’s turn it is this month to use the tiny shared driveway we have – have been having a lot of cars going in and out at all hours of the night.
I haven’t had much sleep in the last few days because our dog barks every time she hears our neighbors “visitors” slamming their car doors or talking just outside our house … you know at 2, 3 and 4 a.m! Grrrr
Plus my brother was visiting from Vancouver over the last week so I was staying up to try to keep the dog quite while our neighbors were doing whatever stuff they were doing in the middle of the night.
Now thanks to the cold and all the stress I’ve been under my Crohn’s is really acting up and my abdomen feels like I just had bariatric surgery or something. I mean … it hurts. I don’t want to do anything but lie on the couch and not move, because every time I move or drink or eat anything my abdomen hurts really bad. Damn Crohn’s. What a terrible disease this is.
Hopefully if I take it easy over the next few days my Crohn’s will settle down, my cold will go away and I’ll start to feel better. With any luck our awful renter neighbors will move out on their own as well … I know that will help me de-stress!
