I’m at a community pool full of spring breakers so youngest dd can swim some laps.  So now I’m doing nothing here instead of doing nothing at home.  

Eta:  it’s a “we miss swim” booyah!. 😊

I'm back!  This apparently was one of those cases where I thought it might not even register as a UTI but the doctor said it was bad.  I'm on my way to pick up medicine and dd16 from tutorial.  I will take my first dose in the van.

Welcome to the world of middle-aged UTI’s. Get yourself a test kit from AZO and then you can test at home when you suspectand then go to the doctor if you have one. They are pretty accurate.

After dd swam, we went to the AFSA.  Yay us!  And then we came home and made homemade burrito bowls:  rice, corn, beans, ground beef, guac, cheese, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, chips were all possible toppings.  I had low expectations because eating things at home never seems as good as out, but it was really good.

80 pages into another round of revisions. I set myself a goal of 100 pages today, and I think I'm going to make it. Maybe. I mostly want to take a shower and go sleep.

I have done a whole lot of adulting today.  I am tired of adulting.  But I have things set up with the oral surgeon.  I got things straightened out (hopefully) for the doctor.  I got a board meeting scheduled.  I think that I got housing figured out for ds for next year.  I got my compounded meds from the compound pharmacy.   I got groceries.  (Junie - tonight's dinner is salmon, cauliflower fried rice with some applewood bacon and summer slaw.)  We also had a doctor's appointment.  And school.  I get 25 minutes off for good behavior before I have to cook dinner.

All of my children are wearing capes and they're quite happy. Maybe you should put a cape on?

So, <dishes-post>, my dh came up with an idea for keeping the kitchen cleaned up.  Each person in the family is responsible for cleaning the kitchen one day of the week.  There are six of us at home (not counting one at college), so dh volunteered to take two of the days and the rest of us get one.  Everyone got to pick their day.  We put it on the white board.  The kitchen has been clean everyday this week.  Until today.  Today was the worst.  Until I finally did my duty about an hour ago.  Proof that I have been the biggest stumbling block in the whole housekeeping scheme, lol.

We also had salmon for dinner.  Baked salmon, steamed green beans, and rice, and hollandaise sauce to put on the salmon or whatever you like it on.

WARNING - LANGUAGEPO!  

Dh is highly offended by "shut up".   We said it in my family growing up all the time, but usually in a more joking, non-angry way.  I cannot tolerate the word "sucks".  So we just don't say either of them.  I encourage my kids to yell "SON OF A WESLEY!" if the need arises.  (Thanks, Olan Rogers!)

Heere endelth the Languagepo.

Rehearsal went well tonight - I had to play concertmaster which I generally don't like, but I managed to get everyone to tune OK and didn't mess up the music too much.  My cellist friend wasn't at rehearsal, so I couldn't ask her when the wedding is tomorrow.  Hopefully I won't need to be there before 4.

Also I took my second dose of medicine.  My bladder feels like it just ran The Barkley.  Should be better by morning.

Many years ago, both dds were at a residential camp for a week, while Mr. Ellie was out of town for his job. I was home alone. And my house was still not tidy. Wut???

I wiped out at 8 pm.  😞

Anemia strikes again.

I'm up now with a headache.  I just ate a snack, so I'm off in a few minutes to take some tylenol, take a shower, and try to get back to sleep.

Happy Friday.  Super tired, it took me three tries to spell Friday.   Dog woke everyone up at 2am barking at the bear getting into the trash.  It went on for a long time, evidently the bear was not intimidated by our 30 pound dog.   I had JUST fallen asleep.

Two classes today with a break in between.  Oldest dd is bringing lunch and her younger siblings to the science center.  Dh is heading down to his parents house for a social worker meeting.  He was going last night but they called and made the meeting later, so he decided to go this morning.  I bet he's wishing he went last night after getting up early to clean up trash.

Finish up today with D&D.  I'm supposed to have a workshop tomorrow but only one attendee so I'm going to cancel.  It's a workshop that a lot of the activities need more than one person plus that's not really fun for the kid.

I'm adding a high school level forensic science class to my schedule for the fall, at the request of some of my current students.  I'm looking forward to it.  It's a great group of kids (teens) and it should be a lot of fun.

Good morning!  It's Friday!!!  Hope everyone got some sleep!

Off to work early today, for a mandatory meeting at one job, then on to the other.  I need to make a quick stop at the AFSA or HEB somewhere in there.

I got right back to sleep after my shower in the middle of the night.  I was so tired!  (Actually, I still feel tired.)

Not much going on today, so I'm hoping to get a good nap.

School, allergy shots for DD1, campfire night tonight for Awana T&T Girls. It was supposed to rain, but the chances continue to diminish.

Regarding language... we don’t say “shut up” or “sucks”. I’m kind of a prude regarding language. We try not to be rude to each other.

That burrito bowl sounds awesome!  Imma have to try it sometime.

 

A couple of weeks ago, I did a "burrito bowl" recipe that everyone in the house doubted but then liked. It contained sweet potatoes and black beans among other ingredients. It was actually good! I'm so glad my family will try anything at least once, LOL!

Good morning. I'm trying to use language. So far, I think it's working. Writing and revising today.  Every time I think I'm done, it's like the cycle starts all over again. But in two weeks, yep. Going to be done.  

Today I need to work through about 100 pages to deepen emotion language, but I was so wiped out with empathy for my protagonist yesterday, 100 was my absolute limit. Also writing about 2K for a new WIP to combat the stress, and then there's more synopsis work to do. Plus, I must gather the boys' books and decide what we are doing for summer term because I have money now, but won't have it later if I don't spend it as soon as I can. Fun times. See y'all this evening because not allowed to die.

I *may* have it figured it out by the time you get back, but just in case I don't, what is WIP?

So I'm back from new salon.  I liked it.  And I liked the stylist.  It's got a ways to go because I'm still growing out a bad cut, but she was very good about talking with me about what I wanted, what she saw (layers and uneven stuff), etc.
