      Oddly enough before the coma as a result of heart attack and stroke, mom was the most sharpest person in the family (other than me). Almost everyone is dependent on her for guidance and stuff. She never had any memory problems before the coma. So it's not an age thing. Doctors say from the CT scan they don't see any damage to the brain so it's very likely she'll overcome the disorientation and memory fragmentation. They are still calling it a miracle she came out of the coma. I'm hoping for the best. She already beat the odds and survived so far. I'm sure she'll make a full recovery. ^^

      I'm glad you're in high hopes, Lucid. I imagine it would take a person a while to gather their wits after all of that!!!

      Rant: My AC is crapping out or something. It's as low as it can go and the fan is set on high and my room still felt like it was in the 80's today. At night, it does better. It just can't keep up with the heat we've been having. But my room is tiny and it's specked for a larger area so it should work. It's getting very old though.

      Rant: These flies are still getting on my last fliggin nerve!

      Rave: I preordered Fallout 76 tonight. Now I just have to get the internet modem fixed so I can actually stay connected for the BETA when it drops.

      Rave: I bought most of the supplies I need to work on the bathroom. I'll be tackling that tonight/tomorrow.

      Meh: I tried lancing a something on the back of my neck earlier. I had my daughter hold a mirror behind me and I used my iPad camera as a front mirror. It was useless I ended up lancing by feel and I made several goes of it but never got quite deep enough I tried "popping" what I did manage to cut and it bled some which helped bring the swelling down a little, but... meh. Not quite good enough.

      RAVE: I was just about to rant about momma dog but then I saw the date! She's been bloodying herself rubbing up against stuff to scratch her back. BUT, she actually goes to the Vet in just a few more days I don't particularly like the vet she's going to, but he's better than nothing. I don't know what her problem is. I haven't seen a single flea yet this year (knock on wood). Something's bothering her though. Between her ear tumor/cyst to her bloodying herself scratching, momma dog is miserable. I hope he can do something for her (that we can actually afford). I was reading that the general cost for tumor removal is 3k. We couldn't afford that even if we saved for an entire year.

      Rave: I saw this beauty at the pickup window at Burger King last night. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_leopard_moth I tried to take a pic of him with my camera and the employee looked at me, curious, so I told her about him. Her reaction was priceless. She was not interested in the least I’ve never seen anyone react that way to a moth before.

      Rants: my room didn’t start really cooling down until around 5AM
      I’m hyper sensitive to the bathroom smells. I could hardly sleep. Even my peppermint diffuser didn’t help. I ended up putting some vapor rub under my nose at around 7AM

      Curiosity: I dreamed of tornados this morning. Usually I dream about them during times of high stress (like before a trip). I also usually just dream of seeing multiple funnels in the distance and I marvel in fear. This morning though, I never saw a funnel. I was driving and saw tree limbs and trees being thrown across the road. A car in front of me was lifted up and thrown. I quickly turned the car around and tried to get out of its path but I was picked up too. I told my hubby I loved him then he was sucked out of the window.
      I then passed out in the dream and came to surrounded by people (no car lol). The first driver was a reporter and she didn’t make it. ...

      Rant: my fingers really hurt. It’s still mostly my pinky but others are aching too (even on the opposite hand). So maybe it’s actually arthritis and not muscular like I thought. Hmmm...

      Is it "perks"? Not sure how old your kids are, but unless I'm ridiculously out of touch with today's youth (which seems to become truer and truer every day), perks seems to make the most sense to me, at least in video-gamey terms.

      Tornado warnings, IC?

      Thanks for trying, SpellBee
      I donít think itís perks either. It like when you have a word at the tip of your tongue but the back of your brain lol. Itís like I can ALMOST remember and then *poof*; it just evaporates.
      Merch feels the closest though (ďmerchandiseĒ).

      Rant/Rave: I spent $45. at the Dollar Tree on mostly cleaning stuff. I also got some TP and PT seeing how Walmart has been sold out of our stuff for the last several trips they got some other sort of cheap paper towels which arenít nearly as good as the cheap stuff I had been getting.
      I also got 3 laundry baskets seeing how my daughter canít seem to keep her clothes out of the bathroom she also refuses to friggin move her shower stuff which annoys me to no end. 5 people sharing one bathroom does get tedious after a while

      Miley made great headway with the cleaning. I didnít even have to get up to help or motivate. You know itís gotten pretty bad when my kids willingly clean something
      I now have about $3. to my name until Monday... which is the Rant part.

      Curiosity: I fell right back to sleep after my earlier post... and I dreamed about tornados again Except these were the more typical tornados, only smaller (I think of them as ďdust devilsĒ). And the dream brought with it more of that feeling of wonderment mixed with terror. I was a passenger in this dream (very unusual for me lol) and the driver was a cousin I havenít seen or spoken to in over 25 years (but think about often because he keeps popping up as recommended on FB )

      Well well well, this seems familiar. Me forgetting about lucid dreaming and dreamviews for months/years and then randomly remembering . Well time to give it another crack. I've missed all you wonderful people haha . Whats going on in my life; I'm halfway through my third year of uni,on holidays now, doing excel and website odds and ends for my my mum's work, have been going to the gym for the past 6 months or so, am attempting to grow a beard lol. I need to basically restart lucid dreaming from scratch I feel, and go for a scientific approach if I want to get serious. I have been remembering a decent amount of dreams, even if my sleep schedule is a bit wacky at the moment, but not really any lucidity for a few years now as I haven't been putting in any effort whatsoever. I'll read up over the holidays though and try to regain the little ability I once had haha. I hope everyone is doing well.

      Welcome back, Blair! Sounds like you life is going very well.

      **EDIT**
      Rave: M&M, the "feral" bathroom kitty has warmed up to me after three years or so. He also peeks his head out from the blank space behind the shower, looking for food. We've always given it to him either there or on the bathroom counter. When I put it on the counter, I'd sneak in pets. Now, when I'm on the toilet, he'll come over to me and rub against my legs. He's still really wary though. And now that we're blocking the shower, I'm afraid he's going to become more feral again.
      Yeah, the shower still hasn't been walled off with that tarp. athe heat has been intolerable.

      Humorous: I fell down I was chasing/playing with the puppy on the way to the house and I slipped in mud I mostly just slid though. My foot was caked in it but where I landed on my butt, I was hardly dirty.

      Rant: I have a sore throat and a concerning bloody-blistery spot at the crevice to my right tonsil. I hope it's just from me deviling it, trying to force out tonsil stones... but you can only see it WHEN I devil it, lol, so it's not something I can easily monitor without irritating.

      My youngest daughter is honeymooning in Mexico and she's sick now. She says she didn't drink the water. I hope she gets over it quickly so she can enjoy the rest of the trip.

      Rant: My stomach is mad at me. But it's not from too much fiber for a change lol. Cocoa Pebbles seem to be better than Frosted Mini Wheats, except it messes things up in other ways (Diarhea instead of bloating and constipation Can't win for losing rofl)

      Rant: My allergies have been in overdrive. I blame all the half-hearted cleaning that's been going on. It's enough to stir up trouble but not eliminate it. Bah!

      Rave: My bell flower plant has come back to life and is doing marvelously. I saw a fly "hovering" over one of the leaves and couldn't figure out what he was doing for the longest time.
      Here's a pic. Hint: He's not "hovering" at all.
      Fly.jpg

      I was so busy marveling at that sight that I nearly missed another. Miley pointed it out to me.

      Bah! Everyone's in stealth mode again


      Rant: 24 days late, but my period finally showed up and it brought an extreme backache with it (as well as rage and reckless impulsiveness). I nearly got into a head-on wreck yesterday (before my period was even officially here) because someone decided 35 mph in a 55 mph zone was a good idea. As soon as I could legally pass him, I floored it. But I think he sped up too. And then a car showed up in front of me but I was too raging to fall back behind the slow poke.

      Rant: My allergies and aching fingers are driving me bananas... still. I need to wash my bedclothes (why are they called that? Every time I write it, I think people will think I mean PJ's when I actually mean sheets and blankets). My allergies are worse when I first wake up, so I think my pillowcases are the biggest culprits.

      Rant: The fleas have finally surfaced. I blame myself for having murdered 1 (possibly 2) very large spiders in my bedroom. They were probably eating all the fleas. (not likely, but I feel guilty about the silliest stuff and that scenario keeps replaying in my brain).

      Rave: My daughter fed me cabbage, keilbasa and potatoes for breakfast. It was PERFECT. Just a little bit of salt. She thought it was bland but to me it was ideal.

      Rave: Hubby's going to be getting me a new AC. Unless I can get this one cleaned and working properly. With the way my back is hurting, though, I probably wont be trying to clean it for at least a week. (I have to take it out of the window; figure out how to get the casing off of it then get it a thorough scrub.) I laughed and told him he can see where my priorities in life lie. I told him I'd feel too guilty asking him for a new AC when he's getting me a new iPad when it comes out. I'd much rather have toys than comfort He told me he could do both and not to worry about it.

      Rant: My daughter dropped the ball with momma dog. They had unexpected bills so she had to cancel the vet appointment.

      Sad Humor: Momma dog was too smelly the other night, so I figured I'd drag her into the shower. I put on her collar and leash. Turned the water on and got it warm. I got into the shower and expected to have to drag her in (as usual), but she walked right in without so much as a whine. You know things are pretty bad when she willingly takes a bath!! But actually, I think she knew the warm water would make her irritated skin feel better. She's been known to howl during showers because she dislikes them that much. Not this time. She seemed to absolutely love it. I'll have to shower her more often but I need to google first. She's part black lab and frequent baths are bad for their natural oils.

      I hope everyone is well.

      Non-Lucid: Had a weird experience when I was listening to one of those stupid hypnosis things. I think I was dreaming. Everything was going fine with it, then all of a sudden, there was an image of this guy appeared in my head. He was tall, thin, like a stick figure with a red plaid shirt and blue jeans. He had no face. Nor did he have eyes. It was dark except for the dream was lit only by some car headlights. There was this black mist around him as he was standing in the path that leads down to the turkeys and the woods. When I saw him, he made me jump enough he broke my trance. He was just standing there. I had that feeling when you get a shock to the system. You know that sinking feeling and sudden sadness.
      I guess, this happens to the best of us. I think it was because someone who was messaging me last week. The person was stalking and bullying me. I don't know. I don't currently know who they are. I block who I think they are but, they make other accounts another website telling me that I'm a horrible person. The only thing I can do is not to react to their stupid bullying. I mean, If someone comes to you with a gift, and you do not accept it, who does the gift belong to?
      The same goes for envy, anger, and insults. When they are not accepted, they continue to belong to the one who carried them. Whoever it is, it's all about control.

      That's a great interpretation of the dream! I'm so sorry you have to deal with a troll though You have a terrific attitude though. I hope they get bored and move on soon.

      Rant: Endometriosis. I'm 98% sure that is what I have. My back is spasming like mad. I'm 44 years old. I hope I don't have to deal with this too much longer. Nothing has ever showed up on standard tests but it makes sense. Why has my Cymbalta stopped working for the pain. Has it just lost its effectiveness or has the condition worsened? Blah. Being female truly sucks sometimes lol

      Rant: The dogs are getting on my last nerve. But they can't help it and, well, EVERYTHING has been getting on my last nerve
      Fleas are driving them bananas and they're trying to scratch their backs on everything which drives me bananas. That plus the whining. So, instead of snapping at them for something they can't do anything about, I just banished them from my room. I feel like a jerk but I'd feel like a bigger one for losing my patience at their misery.

      Other than that, all is peaceful. I bought a fan last night but my AC seems to be keeping up okay for now.

      One day left and my curse should be behind me for another month or more. At least I wasn't in agonizing pain today. I was actually even somewhat productive.
      Somewhat

      Hubby's getting me an AC tomorrow... er, today. I've been trying to finish cleaning my metal cabinet and the surrounding area. But I didn't get started soon enough and now I'm about to drop. I have to be awake early to get my allergy shot and then go shopping, so I HAVE to go to sleep.
      And my back is starting to hurt again anyhow, so....

      I did make great progress though. I even got 2 loads of laundry done and I re-hung a coat rack that's been lopsided for months; and then I got a shower. Now, I'm going to fall into bed where I'll toss and turn for 2 hours before falling asleep, only to have to be a wake at 9:30. Bah!

      **EDIT**
      Bah! is right. I tossed and turned until 5AM and then woke at 8:30 because something was biting me. Or I was dreaming about something biting me lol. My allergies are also annoying me with itchy eyes and PND. I didn't take any of my meds before bed so that, plus cleaning and stirring up dust did me in (I take Benadryl at bedtime).
      It's going to be a VERY long day...

      ***EDIT***
      The neighbor tried telling me something as I was taking the dogs out. I couldn't hear him, so I got closer. The puppy doesn't like the neighbor. His mom started barking, pup got distracted by her. Mom decided neighbor was no threat so she started rolling around in the grass to scratch her back. Pup takes that as his invitation to attack her ("playfully", like he always tries to do when she does that). Pup knocked me over. I went to reign in his leash and he tugged again.
      Rope Burn
      The neighbor said he'd help but the pup doesn't like him. I laughed and told him it was okay (while I was still on the ground ) Then pup got all fierce and barked at his mom. Mom barked back at him for a change. I then told her to go inside so he'd calm his butt down. The neighbor had quietly been slinking off toward his house

      Rave: I got my AC. I'm not going to tackle it until later though. I'm too hot and frazzled. I don't know if the rope burn is bad enough to blister, so I might not want to wait too long.

      I hope everyone's day is going better than mine

      ****EDIT****
      Rave: I got my AC installed. It was an absolute BEAR fiddling with and I nearly fainted from the heat... but I got 'er done. My room feels SOOOOOO friggin wonderful right now.
      In the process of dumping the old one out the window and cleaning them, I found 2 spider nests. The first one was small and popped right away. The other one was behind a piece of wood I use to make sure my window doesn't open. It was huge and I thought it was dead. Just as I was finishing with the installation, it popped and hundreds of tiny babies went everywhere.

      Nah. It's all good. If they eat our flies and fleas, I will be grateful I scooped the majority of them up with a paper towel and threw them out the window too.
      I am NOT looking forward to having to clean my mess tomorrow lol.

      I still haven't cleaned the outside mess. It's too hot and I'm still too sore. It's crazy how sore my hips (buttocks) are. I had to balance the AC in the window at one point, and I held it in place with my knee (getting those "sleeves" onto each side).
      I've been ridiculously sleepy.
      I've been shaving the dogs My daughter-in-law just told me we're going to have the humane society called on us
      I'm using an electric dog shaver (bought a cheap one). It's slow work though because it keeps overheating. Poor momma dog has sores all over her back from scratching. I'm hoping this will help, like shaving people helps with head lice.
      I then rubbed Calamine lotion all over her back (what I've managed to shave anyhow- just her mid-line to her rump). I think her previous owner must have used a shaver on her because she's been very compliant.

      The puppy on the other hand He HOWLS. It's his version of talking. When he doesn't like something, he yells at you to let you know I've not gotten very far on him at all. His fur seems more diffiuclt to cut even though his moms seems thicker.

      Rant: My room smells especially musty today. Is the new AC not draining? If it's not, the water isn't old enough to smell musty so what the heck? It's triggering yet another migraine.

      Rant: Hubby is off from work all this week. He wants to want to do something. Anything. But he's unmotivated and uninterested in everything we can think of. It's going to make him grumpy and depressed. I wish he was OKAY with doing nothing. But no. If he's not productive, he's "worthless". And then he ends up grumbling at me for not being any better in the motivation department; which ends up making him feel even more grumbly and depressed.
      The real kick in the butt is even when we do pull some idea out of the air and DO something, he ends up getting grumbly anyhow Can't win for losing.
      Then he apologizes for being a jerk. Depending on his mood, I can usually laugh it off and say I knew how all this would play out and he'll either laugh with me and get more sulky. I don't take his moods personally anymore (98% of the time). He is who he is. I love him even when he is a pain in the rear.

      Hope everyone is surviving the heat and enjoying their summer.

      Humorous: I've traumatized the poor puppy. They're so flea-ridden that I've been shaving them. ha!- I did already write about that (had to check). I've not touched them, with the clippers, for a couple of days but the pup refuses to stay in my room. He'll stick his head in to peek at me; or he'll run in and drink a bunch of water then dart back out. He never sticks around for more than a few seconds Big baby.

      Rant: headaches. They're mostly nothing (a 2-3 on the pain scale), but gosh if they're not friggin constant.

      Rant: The bathroom floor has been making a weird creak when I get up from the toilet. If the water damage has indeed spread as far as there, then there's no hope for the house. Or me, seeing how my room is right beside it. I need to get under the place but doggone it, I don't want to. I am out of my element and way out of my depth. And it's a friggin hopeless cause that WILL BE MADE WORSE by me fiddling around. Hubby just cannot seem to grasp that.
      There's only partial skirting around the modular (forgive my interchanging of terms for what I call my domicile lol. It's a modular home, so it's a "house", but it's built like a low end substandard trailer). There's the ground, then 1-3 feet clearance (depending on which end you're at), then PLASTIC, insulation, pipes, wires, floor. BY REMOVING THE PLASTIC (which I can't- for the life of me- replace) I expose everything else and when Winter rolls back around there's more unprotected pipes which freeze and further break.

      But it is what it is. What the kids fail to realize is that they're adults. When the home falls down around me, I'll either move in with hubby or into the huge garage or something. The kids will be out on their butt.
      Then again.... maybe that's what hubby's hoping for

      I don't overly stress about all of this. "It is what it is" truly is my mantra. But I hate the home going to pot and my inability to fix it. It frustrates me more than anything else.

      Other than that, it's been a fairly peaceful week. Hubby and I have done nothing (other than going out to eat yesterday) and yes, he's been grumbly about it But not as grumbly as he usually is.

      Rave: I was out in a storm the other day. A beautiful double rainbow peeked out afterwards. It was funny, but you'd swear my town has never seen a rainbow before. Lots of people were out and about taking pics of it.
      Oh yeah, while I was taking pics, lol, I saw either a drone or just a model helicopter. I watched it for some time and took a couple of pics of it too but all of those were crap.

      Meh. My desk top is annoying me. You know those entertainment centers you buy that have ???
      I really hate trying to describe and explain things lol. I'M NO GOOD AT IT!
      Anyhow... it's old and made of particle wood. The varnished top layer has been off in spots since before I've been using it. But it's getting worse and little pieces of the wood keeps scraping off onto my arms and wrists.
      You can't really sand this, can you? I mean, what good would it do since it's MADE of tiny pieces of wood? I need to, maybe, apply another layer of varnish. But because everything's so lumpy/bumpy/flaky would the varnish even adhere properly?

      I'll have to try one night before I go to sleep then crank my AC and hope it dries by morning. My room is exceptionally humid (which I don't mind one bit), so I doubt it would dry fast enough. I can't really remove it, though. I could, but then I'd have nowhere to place my PC etc.

      Rant: Arthritis in my hands and toe have been bothering me. My hands have been giving me grief for a couple of weeks now but my toe just started a couple nights ago. I've been taking glucosamine, which contains shellfish, so I thought maybe the arthritis is gouty. I googled it though and it's synthetic exoskeleton blend which doesn't contain the purines which aggravate gout. So, I guess it's just age

      Rave: I know I've said this several times already, but I FRIGGIN LOVE my "bed" and even moreso now that I know I can use it to pop my back.
      Not only that- if I hang just my head off the edge backwards, I can pop another hard to reach spot in my neck.
      I REALLY need to finish organizing and tidying my room. I think that every day. Not just for the usual reasons, but because one of these days, I'm going to fall off my bed, break my neck and kill myself and I keep thinking "What will people think when they come remove your body?"

      I hope everyone is alive and well

      Rave: My face feels as soft as a baby's behind after I used the L'Oreal's pure sugar scrub smooth and glow. I just bought it yesterday. LOL. My life has been boring. Nothing to write home about.

      I couldn't believe my eyes when job postings are looking for those holding a bachelor's degree, but are only willing to pay them $9/hr. Who knew that there was so many possibilities with a college degree? Even though I'm just looking for a second job on the side, it just puts things into perspective for me. I guess the saturation is really becoming apparent.


      Rave: As much as I'm annoyed of full-time job positions masqueraded as part-time to bait people in, I'm happy that my concern is just finding ways to make more money. I also got my windshield replaced for free; really thought it was just bleeding, 'scam, scam, scam.' But, it happened! I've been eyeing that small crack while this whole transition was on the forefront of my mind instead.

      I've always wanted to try scrubs and such, IC. I'm too cheap to give in though
      My youngest uses some weird foot mask (?) that peels away dead skin in a rather disgusting manner.

      Link, Wow! Glad you got the work done for free! I can't remember how much it cost to replace my windshield but it was a pretty penny.
      And yeah, I'd never be able to find a job. I'm now 44 with NO reference-able job history (babysitting as a teen, fast food as a teen and a stripper for 3 months in my 20's lol Oh yeah, and a Frozen Yogurt Shop as a teen but under the table). I am very glad I don't have to worry about that!!!

      Rant: I've been sleeping like crap.
      Rant: I was without my Cymbalta for 1 1/2 days so last night I was feeling the last of life without meds Adrenaline surges kept waking me up. I was fairly miserable yesterday but all is well now.

      Rant: My beloved Caffeine pills have been absolutely killing me lately. You know how when you take a pill and sometimes it dissolves a little in your mouth before you swallow it? I kept having that taste in my mouth the last 2 days (though not today). I always took it with food AND I properly swallowed it. My stomach felt like someone punched me in my gut so I figured the taste was just some sort of reflux.

      Meh: We started with 9 kittens (I think it was). We were down to 2- Ginger and Maaria. As I was leaving the house the other day, I saw 2 newer kittens peeking at me. One of our cats, Mew, had been pregnant. But then she wasn't. She is a teeny tiny cat, so I thought she lost them. Nope. She had them at the back of the house. They're starting to explore so we're trying to get them used to people now. There's 3 that we know of.
      Ginger and Maaria probably wont make it. Maaria has a belly full of worms but she's too tiny to medicate. Ginger is infested with fleas (and, again, too tiny for flea drops).
      So...

      RANT: The fleas had a late start, this year, but they have arrived with a vengeance. I got the dogs some drops last night because showers with flea shampoo and shaving them (somewhat ) just wasn't doing the job.

      Rave: My plant is going to flower again this year

      I think my dog might be dying. His coat is very grey, he seems lethargic and generally a bit sad. He's also been very sooky as of lately.

      What a handsome fellow, Yuppie! I hope he's just under the weather and feels better soon.
      What's "sooky"?
      How old is he? He doesn't look very old.

      Rant: One of Mew's baby's died.

      Rave: But one of the remaining 2 is absolutely stinking adorable. I call her raccoon eyes because her eyes seem very large and dark.
      But I got to hold her yesterday and I looked her over and neither of those things are actually true She has "eye liner" which make it seem like her eyes are darker (on an otherwise white with gray spot/splotched face). Her eyes do seem to be a bit more rounded and large, but not unusually so. I think she's just going to take after her mom if she lives (Mew is exceptionally slender and wide eyed- she's not under nourished or unhealthy. She's just always been very sleek and slim).
      I gave the kitten cuddles yesterday seeing how she lives at the back of the house in all the water damage. I didn't wake up with any hives whatsoever.

      QUESTION/exercise (for everyone):
      Feel your throat, just under your jaw. With your tongue flat, smash it against the roof of your roof and keep it there. You should feel the muscles in your throat harder. Do you now hear a high pitched ringing in your ears (only while you do the exercise)?
      I was laying in bed, the other night, suffering from those adrenaline surges. I kept trying to find a way to describe them to people. Just before a large wave comes, I hear that ringing in my ears (without tightening those muscles though). But then I was curious and started asking my family if they hear the ringing. They don't. Neither does my hubby lol.

      Okay, here's another question. Can you pop your ears without pinching your nose closed and blowing (I call this particular thing "opening my ears" because it doesn't quite feel the same as popping them) I asked hubby this one and he said he can pop them, sometimes, can by yawning. I said, yeah, it's like that, but it's yawning with your mouth closed. He laughed and said I'm the only person he's ever met who can actually do that So, I guess this question is actually 2. Can you "open your ears" or pop them as described and Can you yawn with your mouth closed?

      I don't hear the ringing you describe. What's causing these adrenaline surges?
      I can indeed do the ear popping thing. I've never really thought about it, but it is pretty weird right. I wonder how I learned to do it. It's very strange, because you're commanding control over a part of your body that you never really manipulate.

      My stupid, treacherous body causes the adrenaline surges. For.No.Reason. They've been the bane of my existence for 18 years. Anti-anxiety meds keep them at bay for the most part (THANKFULLY!!!)
      I don't really even know if they're truly "adrenaline" surges. That's just what they feel like. Like, if you get a sudden fright and you get that jolt of adrenaline. Only, I feel them almost exclusively in my face. When I'm without my meds for any length of time, I'll have those surges every minute of every day forever. But they come in waves. BOOM- a wave comes, I hear that "noise", I feel a jolt, my face tingles. Then I have lesser tingles until another big wave comes.
      It's exhausting.

      When my son woke up yesterday, I asked him my questions. He doesn't hear the noise but he can make his ears pop. So can my oldest daughter. My oldest was like you and thought it strange, but then he thought of people who can fold their tongue (it looks like a 3 way fold- not the basic roll). And then I thought of people who can wiggle their ears and nose. Heh. Or what about those people who can squirt what they drink out of their eyes Now that is cool.

      Rants: Slept like absolute poo again Woke up too early I have to get to the store at some point today
      Otherwise, it's nice and peaceful. Of course, I have no idea if hubby's going to want to do anything yet. He'll be up and about today, which might make him eager to do something.

      Meh: I still have a bit of a fever today. But I feel fairly fine lol. I have some slight body aches (and the stupid arthritis in my fingers and toe haven't subsided by much) and I woke with a very slight earache, but that's it. I am freezing, so I had to completely turn off my AC. :shrug:

      Hope everyone is well and has a great day!
