WHY!!! Why must I be getting a head cold? *sniff* *sniff* Hopefully it'll pass quickly. I have WAY too much to do to be sick.

And, I just realized that it's Jimmy's Un-Birthday today. Because March 11th is 6 months from September 11th. Happy UnBirthday, Jimmy. I'd get you something, if we celebrated. But we don't. So I won't. hehehe.

I was up getting the kids ready for school, but felt like I was dragging a bit. I got them out the door, then managed to throw on some "non sweats" clothes for my meeting with Joe's vice principal at 9am. I met with him and the speech teacher. When we put Joe back into Kindergarten, his old 1st grade teacher mentioned that Joe may need speech. So we went that route. AND, the speech teacher pre-tested him last year (october), and found that he was having problems with about 6 things. When they did the formal testing this year (last month, I think), they found that it was now only 2 problems. He's progressing by himself. They think he'll grow out of it. And yeah, he probably will.

Then we talked about Tom. He was officially denied treatment from our Insurance. Twice. SO, that's not gonna work. I found out today that the school never officially tested him, because he only had problems with that one sound, and that the district would likely deny him.

BUT, I pushed for the formal evaluation, and the speech teacher said that we'd try and make it work. Even if she had to "fly under the radar" to get him some help. Thank goodness. I'll have to make sure that I keep up with them, and push to get Tom's issues fixed. Why can't it just be easy.....

I got back from the school, and slipped right back into my sweats clothes. And stayed that way for most of the rest of the day. I just kinda loafed around the house, feeling congested in my head. Sinus pressure. I didn't like it.

After lunch, I decided to "un computer lab" my dining room. hehehe. Remember how I said that the whole wall in the dining room was lined with computers? Well, now it's not. I have the hutch and one folding table with computers on one wall, then in between the 2 windows, I have 2 folding tables jutting out into the dining room. So the computers are facing out, all the cords together between the two tables. Clear as mud? hehehe. I think it'll work better. Opens up the room better, I think.

Anyway, I took down ALL the computes, moved all the folding tables, and swept really good. It was a BIG mess for an hour or so, but cleaned up nicely.

Before I knew it, it was time to get the kids. I opted to go and get the kids from AQ, since it'd been a while since I had a turn. Andrea was there too, so we hung out from 3-3:45, waiting for the kids.

I came back home, and started on dinner. I made potato soup. It was pretty good. We heard from Jakes football coach that they finally had enough boys to make up a team, so they were issuing equipment before practice tonight.

We left a few minutes early, picked up Kayley's son Joseph on the way, and went to practice. They only had a tiny (on Jake) practice jersey for Jake, but Captain America said that we could cut the sleeves to make it work. Jake's SO afraid that he'll get in trouble. I told him to just tell the coach that his dad did it if he looks like he's gonna get mad.

The kids and I sat in the truck for 45 minutes while the big kids did football. It was WAY too windy to be outside. Cold and windy. At 6:50, we got Jake, and headed for Scouts. They're going on a snow camp out over Spring Break, and needed to have their bags packed so it could get ok'd. He hauled his big duffel bag out, and I left to go home.

Kayley was picking up her Joseph and my Tom from Football, and since Andrea was at the church tonight anyway for a meeting, she said that she'd give Jake a ride home.

By this point, my head was really starting to hurt. Felt like a migraine. But I think it's sinus. I took a decongestant a few hours before, but it didn't really seem to do a great deal. Right before bed, I planned on taking some Niquil. That'll do the trick, right?

I put Joe and Jim to bed, sent Eme upstairs to read, and relaxed on the couch for a bit. Tom came home a little after 8pm, and Jake was home by 8:45pm. Captain America came home at around 9pm. Here it is, 10pm, I just took my Niquil. I should hurry and go design, before the Niquil kicks in. There's no telling what I'm likely to come up with - hehehehe.

Yeah, I bet you can guess where I got the inspiration for this beauty - hehehe. Click on the links below to go to my account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work. Thanks!

Just wondering Bethany if you have ever used a neti pot. You mix a saline solution in it and rinse your sinuses. It can work wonders for headaches.

Thanks for the word art! I know exactly how I'm going to use it ... for a page about Spencer's broken toe! That'll work, right? Colds must be going around. Sarah (my dd 16) is sick, I'm congested but not as sick as Sarah is right now, and Alan's been sniffing a bit too. I think it's the weather; it was really nice and mild last week then it got COLD this week, at least at night. Windy, too.
