So this morning Jake came into my room to say hello and ask me where his pants were (in the washing machine, natch). He got about three words out and then got a look of horror on his face and asked me if I was OK. Turns out there was blood all over my pillow and my face!
After washing all of the blood off of I finally found the source: my lip had been bleeding. A lot. A tiny tiny boo boo somehow managed to bleed all over my pillow. Ewww.
That may be the theme for today, because I’m also getting the first period I’ve had since starting Seasonique three months ago. I guess logically I should be grateful for skipping two, but instead I’m simply going to be three times as much of a baby about it as usual. Should be a fun day.
I have some interesting stuff coming up today though. A little later I’ll be writing about a website I think a lot of moms could use right now: it posts legitimate, non-spammy non-scammy work-at-home opportunities.
I’m also going to be making this squash soup recipe (it’s the fourth one down), sent to me by my friend Julia Beck of Forty Weeks, and testing out something really goofy I bought at the As Seen On TV store in the process. I’ll let you know how both turn out.
And last, I’ll be trying to get Jake (and myself) to bed early, since he has to be at school tomorrow morning at the insane time of 5:30 for a one day trip to Washington, DC. Yes, they are crazy. But the fifth graders are really looking forward to it. They’ll be visiting a bunch of landmarks and tourist attractions, as well as two colleges: Howard and Georgetown Universities.
I really admire the school for planting the college seed in these kids early. For a lot of them, going to college is not a foregone conclusion, and their teachers and guidance counselors want to change that. Hell, I’m not even sure Jake knows that I didn’t graduate from college, and I’m not going to point it out to him either. I want him to assume that it’s the key to success. After he’s grown I’ll clue him in that the key to my success was most definitely not chasing a BFA in musical theater.
Enjoy your Wednesday!
