Thank God It's Friday! Really!

I will be the first to say that I am glad it's Friday and that a long weekend is ahead of me.  However, after the way today went, I don't see how Saturday will be much different except that it won't be a workday.

Today was a bit annoying in that I worked eight hours and then started on my schoolwork, all while my teen son spent six hours on his smartphone (texting and eating up shared data); my young son used a computer for a summer assignment and then played on it; and my ill husband watched t.v. because he really couldn't do much else.  I spent the day in my office, closed off from everyone except my dog (who sleeps in my office), typing away and editing documents and then writing an analysis of a news article for school.  All day at a computer.  My eyes are dry, my rear is sore, and I would really rather be anywhere but here!

Left-side Issues

I've just realized that most things that are wrong with me at the moment are on the left side of my body:  my left eye has the worst of the Blepharitis that my eyes are encountering; that same left eye has a slight birth defect in the pupil causing much blurriness in vision (I wear glasses now); my left ankle has an ugly scar on it from surgery a few years ago (I broke the thing in three places); my left ear doesn't hear so well (thank you, Victoria Clipper!); and my left cheek area has an ugly bump that just got frozen by a dermatologist.  Makes me wonder if my whole left side is just going to fall off and die.
