1. Toothsome #2 starts Kindergarten
2. Toothsome #3 starts pre-school
And, in my attempts to be a better mother and give my kids more individual time, I have put toothsome #3 in morning pre-school and toothsome #2 in afternoon Kindergarten. That way, while one is at school, I can have alone time with the other. Toothsome #4 will of course still be at home, but I am hoping that I can really focus on each child individually while the other is gone. Am I crazy? Should I have had them both gone at the same time? I don't know but in my sleep deprived, guilt-inducing mind it made sense to me when I signed them up, so I am sticking with it.
Tuesday is the big day. I am having a mixture of emotions. Toothsome #2 is SO ready for school but I will miss her company. Thank goodness it is for just 1/2 a day.

The first three people to make a comment on my blog will get a $5 gift certificate to Wendys celebrating my love of the all American hamburger. You just have to agree to pay it forward by doing something similar on your own blog--a homemade crafty offering, a $5 gift certificate somewhere, or a $5 donation to a charitable organization--or basically any offering in the $5 range. I don't want this to be an expensive experience for anyone. Sound good?
Enjoy your Friday!

How did he propose? Dental students are very poor and we did a lot of creative inexpensive dates. One of our favorites was what we called Night Kiting, where we would put a glow stick on a kite and fly it at night. We went night kiting and during the date he got down on one knee and proposed.
Where did you get married? Salt Lake Temple--on a cold day in December.

This is about one foot by one foot square and completely dry. An unnecessary hole.

I, on the other hand, am relatively good at most things mother/wife related but house cleaning is not one of my "grand talents." I have no problem going to bed with a messy house. It is no big deal for me to eat dinner, curl up on the sofa with dentist husband to take a nap and do the dishes later. Not so with my mother. She is constantly on the move picking up, wiping down, and disinfecting. She emptied my garage of every item and swept the floor clean. She attacked my kitchen sink and got it cleaner than when we purchased (brand new) the house. My walls have no finger prints on them. Dust has disappeared. It is quite the wonder.
So, I have decided to step up my game and become a better housekeeper like my mother. If a 68 year old woman can attack my house with vengeance (all the while telling me to go take a nap) and I, as a 34 year old woman should be able to do it as well. So, in the 14 or so hours since my parents have left, I find myself standing in the rooms in my house and thinking, "What would my mother do?" I have to maintain what she left me and hopefully, keep up. Wish me luck.

Recently, while visiting my parent's there, I read this article in The Boulder Magazine. It is so hilariously (even though this author is very serious about what she is writing about) Boulder that I had to add it to my blog. I think I need to go and get a cleansing enema myself to rid myself of bad habits. Enjoy!

Anyway, here is the cycle of my migraines. I can feel one coming on, so I immediately take medicine. This really doesn't do anything but it makes me feel like I am doing something. I then wait for 12 hours in severe pain for it to subside. Nothing helps. If I can sleep, and I do wake up before the 12 hour period, the headache is just as bad. However, sleep rarely happens. To pass the time, I go into the kids bathroom, (it has no windows, so the light of the moon and stars doesn't make it worse--light sensitivity is a major problem for me), turn on the shower and sit in there, hoping the beating water relieves me just a little bit. It might but in all honesty, I am just in a lot of pain. Once the 12 hours is up, I have another 12 hours of "shakiness" but at least I can function and take care of my kids etc. It is a pain and fortunately, I only get the severe headache part about 4-5 times a year. I have other symptoms--blurred vision, tingling fingers, not being able to think clearly, more often but without the severe headache.
So, this morning, I am dealing with the "shakiness". I have ton to do. Oh well. I will just do it but a little slower than planned. BTW: Alberstons is having their great General Mills sale. I spent 35 dollars and saved over $45! And, all of the box tops go to my school.
