Ack! I am not a fan of Mondays on a good Monday. Then there are Mondays like this one that make me want to curl up in bed with some good tea and a few good books. I'm on day 3 of a whooper of a headache. I probably should take my migraine meds but I really don't feel like not being part of the world for between 12 and 24 hours. First thing this morning I called the school and asked to talk to Princess Bear's (PB) teacher. Over the weekend my parents and I were very vigilant about not having the news on so she wouldn't hear anything about the shooting incident in CT. The child has anxiety issues and I just didn't think it would help. I wanted to touch base with the teacher though to see if they were planning on mentioning it. If so I felt like PB should hear it from me first. All the teachers and the principal had a meeting this morning on how to address the issue. They observed a moment of silence for those in CT and didn't offer any details. That worked. I babysat my nephews this morning and G-d knows I love those little boys but it was rough today. Tyler was in a mood and I wasn't in a place to make it a fun day for them. Tyler wanted me to read but Aunt Sarah on 3 hours of sleep, a mega headache and her glasses no where to be found is just not conducive to reading time. I got home around 1pm and tried to some housework and then just veg until it was time to pick up PB. The child does not know how not to leave a trail in her wake or how to not argue constantly. She wound up being grounded from both TV & music today. I think it was more of a punishment for me.
I'm just hoping to get more than 3 hours of sleep and that this headache decides it doesn't need to stick around anymore. Until then there is lots and lots of Excedrin in my future. Have a good one!
