POW. Every time I think things are going along well, something happens. Not necessarily to me, but even a stab to the heart of someone I care about is like a stab to my own. :( I honestly don't understand why people have to hurt others by being selfish and stupid. There is no excuse, as far as I'm concerned, for some behavior. I know it's hard to be an adult sometimes and it's not always easy to do the right thing, but wouldn't it be nice if people TRIED, at least?!

The sun was shining this morning when I drove to work, the first time in over a month that I think we might have a good chance at a summer day. Sun on the fields makes the poppies glow. Sun on the trees makes leaves translucent. Sun on the water puddles makes diamonds in my eyes.

Yesterday, I had a call at 2 p.m. to come pick up Martin, who wasn't feeling well. When I got there 15 minutes later to pick him up, my heart lurched at the sight of his face. He was pale and drawn, with huge circles under his eyes. He had had a slight fever earlier but it was gone by that time. It was his head that hurt. We went home and I tucked him up in bed with the shades drawn and the lights off and 2 chewable tablets of Children's Tylenol and some water. After about an hour he came out and said he felt better, so he had another drink and then laid in bed to read for awhile. After that he was fine. This is the first time he's had a headache like that, and it sure looked like the kind I get, poor thing.

Tonight, grocery shopping and clean up. Tomorrow: party shopping, cookie baking and FINALLY, going to see Harry Potter. Sunday: 4th of July! Also, countdown has begun to vacation...17 days away. But the amount of things I have to do between now and then, that have nothing to do with getting ready to leave, are staggering. In the next 2 weeks, we have another practice for the regional singing, another goodbye party for a colleague, Karin's 5th birthday which includes 2 parties, the aforementioned 4th of July party, a funeral, a trip to the zoo, a father/kid overnight camping trip, a playhouse to finish, and a dinner with friends.

Oh yeah, let's get Jesus or Mona Lisa reduced in size and lacquered on our nails, what a GREAT idea! Actually goes to show you, there are way too many people out there with way too much time and money and not enough sense.

*giggles* Actually, I like the 'idea'. But it disturbs me the amount of money that certain types of women spend on their nails. I mean I can remember low wage types having their nails done every week or ever two weeks and it's not cheap! Usually it was cashiers and waitresses - people I knew while working through university (I worked at a family steak house). It totally boggles my mind. Totally! Especially when... they'd be dressed in complete tat, but have 'fabulous' nails.... ?!?! Does that somehow block out the crap their wearing on their bodies? Or the fact that they have greasy hair and dirty clothes on? Weird.

*gets off soapbox a little embarassed about her mini-rant*

that and lottery tickets!!!

Stackars Martin! Jag brukade ofta ha huvudvärk som barn men det var aldrig några vuxna som trodde på det. Precis som om barn inte kan få ont i skallen? Det är skönt att du låter honom få vila i mörkt rum tills det går över.
Angående naglar, jag har jord under mina, det tycker jag är snyggt! *Går och planterar om en pelargon*

Well, as a migraine sufferer since way back I know exactly how it looks and feels. He's never had one before (like this anyway) and he told me that he knew it was "from watching too much TV." However, it was as if he was quoting something that someone had said (not me) and I know that wasn't the cause :) and explained to him that just watching TV or computer screens isn't necessarily what CAUSES such headaches but if you've already got one coming on then it can definitely AGGRAVATE the condition quickly.

Thank you!

Harry Potter! About time!

It's not me, it's the cultural quagmire I live in!

I know it's hard to be an adult sometimes and it's not always easy to do the right thing, but wouldn't it be nice if people TRIED, at least?!

Yeah. _Before_ they do something too stupid for words.

NO SHIT. :( argh! I'm so MAD for you. And so sad. :( *wraps arms around you and hugs you hard*

How do you do so much? Whatever you have (that keeps you going), I want that too.

I have NO idea, honestly!! And this is me trying to cut back the schedule! :D Failing miserably at it, obviously. I suspect that the collapse will come as soon as we walk in the door of my mom's house. :)

collapse


Well, if you do (collapse that is) do it gracefully!LOL... at your Mom's sounds the perfect place.

I remember reading something about Imaginail being all the rage in Japan. The designs are insane. I'm not a fake nail person, but I really like the concept.

I hope Martin is feeling better...it's terrible to be getting headaches so young.


He is feeling better, thanks :) He was running a bit of a fever today again, so I suspect he's got a low-grade cold, but at least the headache hasn't come back.
