Today was full of surprises...I'll elaborate on that more tomorrow. Last night was also full of surprises and one my hubby is patting himself on the back about. He must be preparing for his 7 day trip to Florida without me! That's all I'm saying!
My Tara had a panic attack today at the end of her dance class. I hate it for her. She had suddenly got pains in her abdomen and of course it scared her. I don't know if was from eating before dance, then stretching and dancing so much or if it was gas....now I say GAS because on the way home she began letting out some noise. Once home she continued and now seems happier than ever. She just finished reading me the Night Before Christmas story.....just before Easter???? Well, I guess that fits. I mean it was Christmas first.
I am prone to panic attacks and I'll just assume she gets it honestly. I am able to handle hers better than my own LOL. I get her to be still and breathe deeply and slowly and she'll say silly things and so will I....this usually gets her mind off her problem and lets her relax some. She goes to sleep with her radio playing....I remember those days myself. Shoot, I still do this if I'm away from home, say in a hotel and especially if there is outside noise that I want to drown out. You can probably find me next week doing this too since Tom will be away. Kind of my way of shutting off my wandering mind.
I was able to talk my Mom into considering to have Easter dinner at her house on Sunday. My step-Dad's son is coming in from California tomorrow night. He's been on Broadway, All My Children, several community theatre plays and musicals, and recently made his TV debut on Showtime in "Sleeper Cell". We never had much to do with him as his mother moved to Calif when he was just a baby and my step-Dad decided that it would be better to NOT complicate the kids life by interfering. So lil step-bro was quite understanding and gracious for that and has enjoyed getting to know us. When he turned 18 he contacted us by letter, and later came to NC to meet n greet. He was here last July just before my nephew was born, so he'll get to meet lil Chase this weekend. Should be a fun weekend!
I hope everyone has a grand weekend and a Happy Easter if that's your thing! We'll be enjoying the eggs and food right along with ya!
