Hi, I'm home w/sick kid today. I think he could have gone to school (you know how when you wake up you feel worse most of the time, but it improves as you get yourself going/shower/etc?), but I let him stay home. But no video games
. (isn't there a mom-devil-smilie???) He may be on the computer, read, rest. He's tolerating it, but has asked me a dozen times for video games. Going thru withdrawal, I suppose.
Yesterday I did most of the errands I meant to (forgot to put gas in the car, but dh takes it during the week, so he can do that.), then rushed over to the parenting workshop. It was actually called "Parenting for Academic Success." Helpful tips. Re-oriented me, I think. Then when I got home, I finished the wash (folding and distribution) and changed the bed sheets. Watched Extreme Makeover, Home Edition; it was a repeat, but I watched anyway.
Good luck on NLN, lilgirl!
Steph, wow, what an eye-opener! Is dh amenable to upcoming diet and lifestyle changes? Hope this turns out to be a positive thing, from which all your family can benefit.
We're talking about going to Disneyland this Sunday, as always, with a group (sons' friends, their parents, our friends, etc. Bil and his dd too; she's been to Disney World 3-4X, but never to the Anaheim Disney). Anyone want/need anything??? PM me and give me your snail mail addy, and I'll send it off. Figurines, socks, pens, hats, stuffed animals (in all kinds of outfits), etc. Sweatshirts, T-shirt (remember, this is the 50th celebration this year!! I hear the Mickey Mouse ears are gold, to commemorate). And, we'll go other times, too . . .
Overcast today, almost "June gloom," that is common here this time of year.
The last chaperone/teacher meeting before we leave for DC on May 10th (redeye flight) is tonight. I need to start making lists and getting ready (travel-sized containers of hair spray, sunscreen, etc . . and do we have enuf socks?? . . .).
Hi Suzanne (lovely visual, reading on the terrace with the nice, breezy weather), Liza (keeping up with the latest on the housee!), Rain (woot, graduation is SOOOOOOOO close!!), Tweety (one step at a time!), PresC, Chats -----------
Will check in later.
