Today was a day of pulling muscles! I just had the big finale by hurting my back....should have waited until hubs got home to lift the fish tank....opps. Not only is my back now out of commission but there is about a half gallon of fish water all over the floor. Thankfully it is cleaned up so when he gets home he won't say "that wife of mine" which he's done a lot lately because he leaves and comes back to more of a organized mess. The reason is, our apartment is small (though it's a lot bigger than some we have seen) but there isn't a lot of room to set things aside while we move things and set up, it's kind of fair game for anything to be everywhere! But, I must say, I am getting pretty excited with how well everything is turning out. I know when all is said and done and we have addressed most of the issues, I will be pleased. The one issue we can't fix and still are having problems with is the guy downstairs smoking inside. I kind of want to ask him to only smoke outside and not right under where our upper door is but I don't know if I can do that. I did put filters in the vents but those are not keeping out the smoke. I would add another layer but then I think it would be harder for the heat to come through. We'll have to figure out something though because this second hand smoke is really getting to me. Thankfully it's not all the time but it is enough.
I will have to post some pics of the rooms when they are done, some almost look like they could be in a magazine. I set the crib up to give us some more space and Charlie seems to think it's a bed for him. We had this problem before with him going in there and I want to try to keep him from doing that. I know he doesn't like the spray bottle so I may have to get one with water to keep him from going in there. He is so darn cute though, he knows he isn't suppose to be in there and he looks up at me with those damn cute sad kitty eyes and melts my heart! But I have to stand my ground.....it's just like when Milo is sleeping in my spot on the bed at night when I go to bed and have to move him...those cats, they sure know how to make mommy melt and be lenient....I am very thankful to have Milo and Charlie in my life. For those who may be struggling I HIGHLY recommend getting a pet. I cannot stress how much they have helped and how well they are for therapy. I'm even allergic to cats but I've gotten use to their dander so it doesn't bother me, even if it did, I cannot imagine my life without them and I'll let you in on a little secret...Our fur family may be expanding soon. There is a very slight possibility the hubs and I have had our eye out for the next perfect addition.
The only issue I had with today (other than the migraine I woke up with but my saving grace Maxalt took that away) is my eye will not stop twitching, this is going on day two now that my left eye has been twitching....I find eye twitches to be one of the most annoying things. I just want to rip my eye out of the socket for a few....give it a good stretch...it just feels like it needs to be stretched. Odd I know but that's me!
I wanted to mention and say thanks to those who have left comments recently. I never know who reads my blog, I just write in hopes of helping myself and maybe helping someone else through what I write. But, I LOVE getting comments, it really makes my day so thank you.
Also REALLY looking forward to sharing the boys with some new people tomorrow. I settled on Scrapbooks and Molly Bears for the first share meeting. Hoping the next 6-8 weeks can help heal my heart even more.
And on that note, it is time for my nightly Epsom salt bath which has worked wonders for my sleeping issues. The tea's bubble baths, walks, writing before bed and routine all helped a little but when I soak in Epsom salts I sleep very well. I also don't feel as sore (there suppose to be good for your muscles) I have started to read into all the benefits that Epsom salt baths can actually bring a person and there are a lot! I know from now on I will be using them a lot more. I like that they drain my body of toxins, helps my new natural side feel a bit more...au natural!
