Last night was miserable. My neighbors were watching some action movie with a boom boom soundtrack until well after midnight. Tonight is quiet. I think the manager has finally spoken to them and gotten through to them that they have to adjust their habits to live with everyone else here. Late night movies are fine - but not loud and booming!
I didn't get to sleep until well after 1:00 and had to be up at 6:00. I was grouchy all day. Well - until my sister Nancy called at lunchtime. She'll be visiting with her daughter Nikki and our niece Maggie the first part of April. I can't wait! I'll get to hang with my sisters and nieces and laugh and cry and it will be so good.
Nancy and I talked about Mom and Dad, of course. And how tough this year has been for us so far. But we are determined to shift and think positive and move forward.
Toughen up and keep going. That's what we do. But it is nice to not feel alone in the process.
Well, it's only 9:30 now, but I have to make up for my bad night with a good one tonight. I will be teaching tomorrow and have to be at my shiny best.
