Just had to swing by to pick up Ds from where his car broke down. We're at the chiropractor now- then auto parts store and then back to fix it.

I watched the last four minutes of a basketball game with ds18.  I think it took 20 minutes.  :blink:

Good morning! I need to take ds13 over to the scoutmaster's house so he can help out up neighborhood flags for Flag Day.

Also, ds8 becomes ds9 today.

So I am planning to continue my old commonplace notebook.  I really like it, it has an Irish blessing on the cover and celtic knots (one of my new ones has Celtic Knots, I love that kind of stuff).

BUT, some of the poetry was self-written and some of it is truly truly awful.  I wrote a lot for a creative writing class I took in high school and they were for specific types of assignments.  

Would it be wrong to tear out those pages?   On the one hand, they are truly truly awful.  On the other hand, I doubt I have copies of them anywhere else.

I threw away my poetry book from when I was a teen and I really regret it.

Good Morning!!!!!

COFFEE!!!!!~D

Friday!!!!

Last day of school!!! Well, officially. They are all going to to math all summer long.

I have to go find some German sausage for Father’s Day lunch. We’re having German sausage sandwiches. I used to get mine from the grocery store. The guy who made it sold it there. But then he died and the grocery store changed hands. Now the guy who makes it sells it from an auto body shop across from the fire station. I asked my mom about it. She couldn’t tell me exactly where, it’s “just across from the fire station, there are a bunch of businesses with really no signage, just go into the north bay and ask for the guy who sells German sausage.”  Yeah, sometimes I feel like I live in a third world country.

I slept so well last night. Of course it was due to the fact that I could BREATHE. Usually I am so congested I can’t breathe, but I did the Afrin thing and slept great. I do that occasionally. I know that Afrin is not good for you, I’ve had that lecture before from health care providers, but dang it, it is the only and I mean only thing that helps. I’ve tried it all.

Take a photo of the ones you don't like so you have a copy just in case you for some reason want one some day, then tear the pages out so you aren't bothered by poetry you don't like in your lovely book.

My hallway is half painted. I'm trying to pull together the motivation to go finish.

This house was built in 1985 and I suspect that is the last time the hallway was painted.

Good morning!  Happy Flag Day!

The Army was instituted on this day in 1775.

Happy Last Day of School!

Kids have been deposited at orchestra camp and quick stop has been made at the grocery store.  Flag has been put up.  Now to start labeling stuff.  Ready, set, go!

Coffee!

I realized that I forgot to ask one question on my list yesterday when I was talking to the camp ground people.  Called.  It was forwarded to Voice Mail - which is . . . wait for it. . .  Full.  I just sent a text to that number, hoping that it goes to a phone that actually receives texts.  Do any of you know if you get a notification of some kind if you send a text to a landline or some phone that doesn't accept texts?

It’s a vaso-constrictor, and apparently that’s not good for you on a regular basis. And it can have that “opposite effect.” You do it too much and instead of helping, all the sudden it does the opposite and you’re in big trouble.

Afternoon. Up to my elbows in writing, but I want to be in paint soon. Been needing an afternoon with the paintbrush. But I have another 500 words to write first, and a Murder Patch of pumpkins to water.

Happy birthday, kernal!

Go, Critter, go! I hope you get in paint soon.

Today was my first OB appt for Baby. I've seen the ultrasound tech a few times (there was a subchorianic hemorrhage early on, but it's gone now), but today I got to hear the heartbeat on the Doppler! I never get tired of that sound. Baby is growing well and is roughly the size of a lemon. I, on the other hand, am quickly starting to resemble the Say-Puft Marshmallow Man. 🙄

Runner is still feeling down, and Reader is acting very tired today, so we didn't get much done in the way of lessons. They're reading a lot, and every so often I ask them to tell me about it, so I guess that's enough. I have 6000 words to write and 12,500 to edit before tomorrow at 7 p.m., which is when the first 25% is due. 

I'm going to take a break, though, and play a board game with my kids.

I looked for the German Sausage Place, was too embarrassed to ask, left, came home, texted my mom and will try again when I go out to go to the Afsa. This is one of the major differences between my mom and me. She doesn’t care. She asks, she’ll try new things. Not me, I am a wimp.

Oh my stars. What an experience. So, on my way home from the Afsa I try again for the German sausage. I pull upon front of this.... auto repair shop. ItKs a big shop, the asphalt parking lot is full of cracks and potholes and cars strewn all over it with their hoods up. I’m looking at it like,,,,, oh my word, I call my mom again. She said, “yep, that’s it.” So, I get out and walk in. I see a nice looking kid working on a carburetor and I ask him is they have any of Dave’s German Sausage. He acts like he knows something about what I am asking and goes to check. Thankfully they have some, but only two packages. Dave is dead or retiring or something and his son may or may not keep making the sausage, so, I buy sausage. It comes out to $18.70. I only have a $20. I almost told them to just keep the change as I ran out of there,  but they were able to make change. I thought I was absolutely going to die.

Made progress in the hallway, hopefully I can finish tomorrow. 

I now have a headache and am lying down in the girls' room; I smell dinner cooking in the kitchen--I've considered investigating but think I will trust the kids with it.

I'm done with my first full year running the science center!  I already have a bunch of registrations for next year, plus the school assemblies, plus tutoring.  Looks like this thing may actually work out.

I am kind of excited to have next week off.  I can certainly use the break.  And I'm only doing at most 2 weeks of camp the following week.  Then vacation the week of July 4th, then a full week of camp with 8-10 kids.   After that it's all up in the air.

Yup. To try to avoid the rebound I do one squirt per nostril instead of 2, and I only do it at night, so only once a day instead of twice. i still get some rebound, but not as bad. Usually I use the Afrin when it is terrible, then use Sudafed to get past the rebound. Oh, and I've been known to treat just one nostril, when getting over the rebound, so I can at least breathe via one side of my nose, lol. Then when the rebound wears off on the untreated side I can stop with the treated side.
