Dear Darlings,

I hope all is well for you. It's still hot in our little Northern California town. Tomorrow is supposedly going to be the hottest of the days. I'm dreading it as our house won't cool past 78 degrees during the day even with the air conditioner on. I think it is due to our house having very little insulation. Regardless, it's been pretty miserable.

On top of everything else, I am having horrible fatigue and flu-like symptoms from fibromyalgia. I feel awful beyond words. It's too hot to sleep but I'm not really sleepy anyway. We have yet to unpack from our trip fully and there is so much to do and that I want to do. But I can't.

Ronald has been forcing me to lay down and take it easy. He has been doing laundry, taking care of the pups, bringing me my pillow, and helping me get ready for bed. I need to ask for help more instead of forcing myself to do things. I keep getting up to do things and then I can't even move enough to get back to the couch to sit down. I can't believe how bad I'm feeling. 

Needless to say, I'm getting really sad and depressed. I don't even have enough energy to deal with that. It's hard when my life has to totally stop because of fibromyalgia and I don't know when I will feel better. It's not like a flu where there is some estimation of how long it will last (usually no more than ten days), with this, I have no clue. Tomorrow morning I have therapy. Luckily all I have to do is drive there, go up an elevator and sit down. I think I will be able to do that.

R and I are about to go do a little grocery shopping. I need to walk for a bit to stretch out so it will be alright. I need to go to another grocery store too, but am not going to be able to do that for a while. I'm kind of thinking of setting up home delivery for groceries, or at least trying it once since the first delivery charge is waived.

On a sort of embarrassing note, I have been put on two medications for my face. I have issues with trapped pores. I just re-started the treatment which I stopped while in Vegas. My face hurts so bad! I even cut back from what my doctor recommended but she said it would hurt. She also said in three months my skin will look totally different and better. It makes my face look worse in the short term though and it hurts to wear makeup, so I'm going to be a bit of a mess these few weeks. It will be worth it in the long run, and you all will have a break from face pictures of me on here for a bit.

Lastly, don't forget Google reader is gone tomorrow (July 1)! If you haven't switched to a new reader here are some tips. Don't forget to spread the word to your friends and followers!

I hope you are having a good weekend. Do you have any fun Summer plans?

xx, C
