Don't forget about lunch at St Mike's tomorrow. Yours truly will be bringing baked spaghetti & mini-mocha fudge cheesecakes...
drink berries and creme dr. pepper.
But I just had to try it once....
You are 88% true Southern!
|You are pure belle or gentleman! You know your Jones Soda, Nehi and RC colas, your Moon Pies and sweet potato pie; you'd absolutely die without air conditioners in the summer, and you've seen Steel Magnolias and Fried Green Tomatoes (or read the book!). Your grandmother lives in an antebellum home and has a cook who makes the best fried chicken and asparagus casserole and summer squash and everything else in the world. And you know the taste of honeysuckle and the feel of grass between your toes. You are blessed.|

most of that is true....
Now just to get through these last three weeks...and then the last week of "TAKS remediation because you failed"
feeling better....pacemaker isn't a cure, but it helps me recover faster during the "spells" of whatever still plaugues me. meaning, I still get lightheaded, but I don't have to deal with the extreme fatigue and other stuff. so, it's bearable. I'd still like to know what causes these spells though--two likely candidates are blood sugar and thyroid, but my bloodwork shows up normal every single time.
my insurance is good at least. Although I don't think they're a big fan of me right now....they'll be happy when september rolls around and i restart my deductible and everything....
and i leave you with a funny Easter picture:
See if you can get to this article on the Christian Science Monitor, 04/06/06
I don't think I can quote the story here looking at some of their policies, but if you can't get it, let me know and I'll forward the email version of the story.
Sore. Not sure if it's from my one rollercoaster ride on the Rattler, or the 12 hours being cramped on the charter bus, or the few hours spent hunched over grading at the competition.
We had a good time and the kids did an awesome job--PT took second place overall at state. We had one sixth grader who took first in three categories and third in the second out of all the sixth graders.
I've got a lot of ideas for next years, if I get a chance. I'm rather frustrated with a few elements from the weekend, but we'll see what happens.
*off to check emails and what not*
for our dear St Mike's Mom--Margie Litterski. Her sister passed away tonight during heart surgery (repair on a torn vessel after aorta surgery). Margie has fibral myalgia which flares up in times of stress, so prayer for her emotional and physical healing. Her sister Barb had seven kids and several grandkids, plus she was the oldest of nine siblings.
Oh, and pray for our sanity this weekend. Math/Sci Competition in San Antonio--a weekend with 32 middle schoolers, and competition stress. We'll miss y'all.
