An update....

Well, I'm feeling much better since my (urp) GI incident at my friend's house. But EVERYONE at work is having laughs at my expense. Hmph.
My gyn woes have ceased, at least for the present time. We'll see what happens when I get to the end of the medicine.

I had the annual review of GB's APEX (gifted class) progress. The teacher and his homeroom teacher just went ON and ON about how bright and smart he is and he's so willing to help out others in the class and blah blah blah. I thought, "Am I in the right meeting? Is this the same kid who cries when I tell him to take out the trash?" Well at least he is good in public. No, really, I know he's a great kid. Just a normal great kid.

Switched my work schedule today so I could fix Drama Queen's hair for school pics. She picked a headband, and still went to school in tears. Go figure.

We interrupt this program....

To make a long story short, I went to the gyn Friday, and it was not the most fun thing I've ever done. I've been having terrible cycles and she did and exam and biopsy. Then she told me to take three (3!) birth control pills a day for a week. So yesterday morning I took 2...and got sick! The worst part was I was at my friend's Home Interior party when I got sick! Luckily my friends from work were there, and they're used to that kind of stuff, but I was SOOO embarrased! So I took a 25 of Phenergan and slept from 3pm yesterday until 7am this morning. I feel better but still drugged from the phenergan.
I'll try to finish my 100 Things at a later date!!

The Most Amazing Thing.....(sappy alert)

The most amazing thing happened to me 10 years ago today! I became a mom. It seemed like it was just a minute ago that he was born. Unplanned but not unwanted. Or unloved. I remember still how excited and happy we were, that my husband cried, and how tired I was but still wanted to jump up and down. Healthy and perfect, now smart and cute and funny and sensitive. I still remember who was the first visitor (our pastor), the first time he smiled, the first tooth, the first step, and all the other firsts. And I thought my life was going to be ruined. So not true. It has been greatly enriched. What on earth did I do before I had kids?? And oh how I thought I could never love another, then came the girl. But thats another post. Thank you, God, for my son.

What's that thing on your head?

Yesterday when I went to pick DQ up from play practice, I ran into a lady from church. So we chatted for a moment. The whole entire time we were talking, all she did was stare at my forehead. Yes, I know I have a bump on my head. Ok, its a knot (I'm a knothead). Actually its a lipoma, a big blob of fat (wonder where THAT came from!) right smack in the middle. But she didnt have to STARE at it!! So now I have an appt to see about getting it taken off. It must be getting bigger because more and more people are asking "what happened to your head?" I told my kids it was my unicorn horn stump. But did she have to STARE??

All the Drama....

Well the kids tried out for a play yesterday and Golden Boy didnt get in. Drama Queen did. So you can fill in the blank as to what happened after that. Its the first time GB got a rejection. Bound to happen sooner or later. He was so upset he said "Well I'm not even gonna GO to the stupid play". But it will be good for DQ to be in the spotlight for a while. I know she feels she lives in the shadow of GB.
Stay tuned for the next episode of....As the world churns.
