wednesday night - i got my clothes put away. granted, the suitcases are still out - but oh well. they're properly shoved out of the walking way.
thursday night - i made good progress on the dvr updating. apparently catching up on my tv shows out ranks the massive pile of mail on my counter. go figure.
my kidneys are hurting. have been officially for a few days. this is not good news for me. i had strep that settled in my kidneys about 3 years ago. which lead to really strong antibiotics. which lead to the bad bacteria not getting killed off, but the good stuff instead. which lead to chronic diarrhea. which lead to bleeding in places that shouldn't be. which lead to a colonoscopy. which lead to the milk allergy discovery. which pretty much lead to a huge change in lifestyle. (oh & sidenote, my colonoscopy was the day before my "whole world" fell apart & i found out that i was engaged to a complete and utter liar, manipulator, stranger... so - for silly reasons, this is all connected to that rat bastard. i mean eventually - i realized it wasn't my whole world - but it surely felt like it at the time) bottom line is - kidneys hurting - bad news. i'm kinda in a panic.
i've decided that kids are so easily tricked. they're currently playing "games" - because we had 15 minutes before lunch... somehow we moved quickly this morning. (what did i forget???) and I don't feel like starting our math lesson until after lunch, cause it'll take more than 15 minutes. the thing is - these aren't games... they're "independent math centers" that my kids are fooled into thinking is games. i can hear them talking & problem solving right now. i love letting them do these math centers - it reinforces skills, etc. but what i love the most is that they think its the coolest thing in the world... playing these "games" is like telling them "we're going to have an extra christmas morning." they squeal in excitement. it also is good for me, cause i post real quick & now am going to move on to getting ahead of myself with grading spelling tests. yay!
