It has been awhile since I have posted. I finally took some pictures off of the camera and put them on my new laptop, so I will post a few of them. Life has been hectic at our house, as normal. Akila had a really good night tonight, which is all relative I guess. The main issue was that she called a girl "retarded" at dance tonight, but that is not bad considering her behavior lately. I have to email the girls father tonight.
She has been in an after school program 3-4 days a week, and that honestly has made our evenings much more controllable. It is nice too, as I either have one or two kids on those days after school, and we can have more time together this way (all the kids are doing one after school class).
I need to whine a minute, but I will start it off with good stuff. I have posted about this earlier, but I have not had even a tiny headache since the beginning of January. It was not my new year resolution or anything, but it would have been a good one. I just didn't think it was realistic then. Over three months with not even a hint of a headache, wow!!! You all should be on vitamin D, I love it!!!! Take at least 5,000 mg.
But, vitamin D has not helped with my cold sores. I usually get them every couple of months or so, and I got a whopper of one this week. On Monday night, I was at a PTSA meeting, and I thought I was getting a sore throat as my ear was hurting when I swallowed. After I got home, put the kids to bed I sat my lazy bumm down in front of the TV. As I was sitting there, I started to get shots of pain in my eye socket. My eye socket. Then in my cheek and the side of my face. It was quite bizarre. I went to bed early, but did not sleep well. I kept on waking to pain on the left side of my face. Finally, in the middle of the night, it dawned on me that I was getting a cold sore.
I have gotten cold sores since I was a teenager, and I have only had a handful of them that really hurt, I mean really hurt. And this one does. It is a whopper. My face has hurt for two days now. Weird. I have tried Lysine, and other things, but not had much luck. All of my cold sores have come with some minor pain, and some major aggravation!!!!! But I think this one is the most painful ever. I think my hubby thinks I'm losing it, as much as I have complained about this honking sore on my lip. Can't blame him, I think I whined less when I had my 9 surgeries.
Anyway, here are some pictures:
Here Akila is feeding a cow on our fun spring break trip to Iowa.
My boys are helping to babysit my former student Erin's baby, Patrick
Imani and Akila in their Easter dresses.
Akila being a goof ball and watching a movie in our bathroom. I think she likes the heated floors.
Imani is standing in front of the giant picture on the back doors of our school (which face Hennepin Ave).
Tempted to Hide Under the Covers?
