Hide and Seek

I've been hiding for a couple weeks now!  I'm so sorry about that.  My family came down here from Michigan to spend some time with me.  My mother hen, brother boo, his girlfriend, my "baby" sister and her twin babies (my little watermelon men) came.  We had a pretty full house here!  I loved it.  Unfortunately, the weather decided to go from the 70s and 80s before they got here to the 40s and rain while they were here.  It made for a tough trip.  we didn't want to hang out too much at home cause the babies are very busy and I don't exactly have a baby-safe house.  We didn't really want to spend too much money because that isn't what family time is about.  and it was hard to play outside because it was so darn ugly. 
Overall, the trip was fantastic though.  I had not gotten to see the little guys since they were born last summer.  Already they have very different little personalities.  I wanted to keep them!  They sure are sweet boys.  My sister is a wonderful mother to them.  I was so proud to see her.  Everything they do makes her smile.  She gets excited with them over even the seemingly small things.  She is very patient.
So, they left last Tuesday and then they week just filled up quickly.  We had food to buy, errands to run, and things to do.  I also returned to work this past weekend.  It was a really hard thing to do.  I hadn't worked in nearly a month.  My back was feeling pretty good though, and my bank account was starting to hurt instead.  I worked a very full weekend.  a 6 hour shift and two 9 hour shifts.  My back and legs were so sore.  To top it off, I spent a lot of time in the garden area and my allergies were not happy.  My eyes would not stop watering.  Oh well, I did enjoy the fresh air!
So that brings us around to today when I finally got to see a doctor about my back.  As is typical with the lovely Veteran medical care, I didn't get any answers.  I have x-rays and labs next week.  Hopefully an ear specialist will call to make an appointment with me, and then I will also have to get an MRI after the x-rays are done and go to a physical therapist.  Not excited!
Right now in school I am working on a self-portrait video.  This is a really tough project for me.  Don't get me wrong, the video part is easy!  It's the self part that is hard.  I really had no idea what to do for it until all of a sudden it came to me that I would share a very difficult part of myself.  I decided to share my Borderline Personality Disorder.  I figured that is one of the biggest things that makes me who I am /or am not each day.  It is the one thing that makes me a different person each day.  It is the one constant.  The video is very serious and also very me.  I will share it when it is completed.
We also got a new lawn mower!  I'm really excited about it because it is totally earth friendly!  It is a cylinder-style mower.  You know the type - no gas or electricity!  You literally have to PUSH it yourself.  We really are trying to be more conscience of our footprint so this is a huge step toward that goal. 
Alright, I better get going.  I promise to post pictures soon.
