Late again

I know that staying late is not good for my MS, but it is more important to keep the job to keep $$ for the family.

I am staying late because of some of the stuff that I have that is not in my control. I am depending on someone else to set up some things for me. I don't really like too many things (at my work) out of control, especially when I know that I could have done it, myself, already.

I am finding the added stress, sometimes, adds to my fatigue exponentially. And, that is not good. But, still, I wait. I try to make sure that I do not lose my temper, which is very difficult, and everyone would know, when you get tired.

BTW, I did get my tattoo and my wife was not nearly as upset about it as I thought she would be... but the kids really liked it. I have been doing what was recommended and adding lotion to it constantly. Had to be lubriderm since it has less alcohol in it. I tried some others and they burned.

Honestly, the tattoo was nothing in comparison to the shots that I take. Not nearly as painful, although my shots don't take 3 hours of boredom.

Home Alone

Well, wife and kids are out of town... I am left all alone! This generally not the greatest of plans since I don't normally do well alone, but I am taking the time to rest. Of course, the weather is awesome... but no one to do anything with.

I have stuff to do (inside) and hate to spend my time in the house, but I really need to.

I really don't have much to say, just that I am fine and am taking care of stuff that I needed to do (besides rest). I have a feeling that I won't get in as much rest as I had planned, but that is just part of being me. I am not feeling bad. I actually slept til 11am (went to bed at 1am). That is good.

I am finding that extra sleep at night is not the cure, it is rest during the day that seems to keep everything in order.

I think I am going to go get a tattoo today. I have been planning one for a while. It has my kids' names on it... something that is permanent... kids can't go away. I love my wife dearly, but that is just not the right person's name to put on a tattoo. I had pretty much forgotten all about the tattoo plans, but I had told my daughters that I was going to do it a couple months ago and they asked where it was at... That pretty much sealed the decision to do so.
