Well, today is Jason's 10th birthday and Becky's 24th. Preparations are being made to go to Roller Valley Roller Skating Rink later on for the party. Jason's extremely excited and well, so is Becky. She's just a big kid, you know. We just have to wait for John to get home after a 4:30 meeting so that we can go pick up presents, wrap them, and then go. He'd better not be late. All of thise has me deciding that Madison must age more slowly. I'm feeling old, and kids grow up toooooo fast.

I had a weird nasty pain earlier, too. I got up to use the bathroom and get some tea when my right shoulder started aching and cramping to the point that it was making me feel terribly nauseous. I went into the bedroom as quickly as I could to lie down, and it took a bit, but the pain went away. I don't know what the hell it was, but it left me still feeling a little queasy and off. I've been overusing the arm lately, and I guess it's complaining. I really don't want to see a doctor about it, because, like Mikel, I'm tired of doctors. I went to way more than enough back after my accident and I'd like to avoid them if at all possible. Hopefully the pain will not reoccur. I have so much still left to do, and I refuse to leave it all to other people. Becky won't be able to help after today because she's going to be spending most of July with her mom, lucky thing. I'd love to take a road trip with them since they're going through the Southwest, which is somewhere I've always wanted to go. Someday, maybe. Mike's been clinging to her since he won't be seeing her all that time, and since he's still not feeling well, he's clingier than usual. I'll just have to make sure he gets lots of cookies coming up. It's amazing how well they work to distract him, at least temporarily.

I'm getting the sneaking suspicion that Mikel is planning on skating when we go to Roller Valley. I'm just waiting for the nagging session from Amber. Of course, this will spur him on to do it, which, no matter how many times you tell her, doesn't stop her. She just can't help it. Those two are always interesting to watch together, I'll say that. He's sure she just wants to ruin his fun, and she's sure that he's defiant just to annoy her. Round and round she goes, where she stops, nobody knows. Don't you love vicious circles?

Mornings are so hard sometimes, you know? Here is it, a little after eight in the morning, and I seriously want to go back to bed. That's not a new thing, of course. As soon as I get Jason to the bus stop (he doesn't like to go alone), I am going back to bed and sleeping for as long as my body wants. Yup, I'm feeling lazy.

I'm also feeling sore. Miserably sore. My upper legs up through my waist are hurting like hell. My muscles are protesting this whole thing, and my bad hip is really beginning to bother me even more. I hurt at least somewhat pretty much constantly, but worse so when I get up and walk around. Yesterday I got way more walking in than I wanted, and my body is letting me know that it's not happy with me.

On the bright side, we have the crib now, and it's all set up in the room. The Care Bear bedding is on it and it looks so cute! I have decided that drawers are a pain in the ass to put together, regardless of brand. There wasn't much trouble with the crib itself, but the drawer that goes under it was annoying as hell. It's done now, though! There just needs to be a baby in the crib and, as Jason said last night, it will all be complete. Nah, he's not excited.

I felt bad the other day, though. It finally hit Jason that I'm going to be gone for at least a day, and that really didn't set well with him. He's so clingy with me. He started to cry when he found out. Sadly, I'm going to be gone probably for at least two days since that's how it usually is with me, and since I'm having a tubal ligation, that will likely add to the time. I couldn't bear to tell him that, though. Hopefully he'll handle it better than it looks. He'll at least have lots of people here to keep him company.

Now I must go and get ready to take Jason off to the bus stop. He is, at the moment, getting ready to kill a spider to save me, because he doesn't want it coming over and biting me. He's so cute! My hero.

Oh! I forgot to add something cool from today. I must remedy this. For, you see, we got to go watch a cool presentation in Jason's second grade classroom that he did on scorpions. It was so cool. It was Power Point and he had to do it in front of the class. It was neat of the teacher to invite families, too. He was so cute up there and it was funny when he'd roll his eyes because of one thing or another and give this little half-smile. After he was done, he came running over to me and jumped in my lap to hug me. I was so proud of him because he did so well. I think it's cool that they're getting him used to presentations so early. It makes it easier to talk to audiences, not that he's at all shy. I know, parents make a fuss out of the smallest seeming thing. Ah well! That's how it is.

I think Jason is obsessed with Metallica. Mike seems to have influenced him. Not that I'm complaining. I like them, too. It's cute when he decides to dance to it and then gets to looking all tough. What a kid. Gotta love him.

Well, almost half through the week. It hasn't been too bad. Got my appeal off to the financial aid people, I should get my rejection soon enough. Not that I care all that much. It would be nice to have spending money, and I really would like to buy some new clothes (I'm so tired of the usual jeans and tee shirt shit), but if this was gonna happen, this was the right quarter for it. I'll hopefully get my application for grad school off really soon, too. Just have to wait for John's paycheck to get the $35. I'm not sure if I've missed the deadline due to lack of funds, though. If I have, I can just skip fall quarter and go in the winter. I'll be bummed if there's something I really want to take in the fall, but ah well. I know that Dr. Urcia is offering a class on Chaucer in the winter, I just don't want to miss that. I so love Chaucer and would love the chance to delve more deeply into the Canterbury Tales.

If my arm doesn't start feeling better here soon, I'm afraid I'm going to have to go to the doctor again. The pain's moved down the arm some and those anti-inflammatory pills aren't doing much for me. The pain pills have, though. Boy, do they make me goofy. Last night was a trip and a half and reaffirmed that I am better off not drinking alcohol. Being drunk would just be wrong. Especially if it affects my talking the way this does. I can hardly shut up. No comments from the peanut gallery, either. Yes Becky, I mean you.

I do have one more thing to say before posting a couple more quizzes, though. Mark Twain was a literary genius. Yup yup. Gotta love him. I do love Lit classes where I get to read neat stuff and get graded on it.

Bitch Slapper!

What kind of non-weapon related attack move are you?

I would've preferred punch or something, but ah well. Slapping never was my style. Doesn't leave much of a mark most of the time.

Sounds cool to me! The second movie will be out on DVD on Friday. That's good news indeed.

Well, it's been a pretty good day overall. Jason was home sick again, he had a fever this morning. Hopefully he'll be feeling better tomorrow. I've been playing Diablo II as well as roleplaying, so life is good. By the way, the assassin rocks in DII. Really cool. Although I think I still like the barbarian best.

I get to go get my eyes checked tomorrow, my mom has finally gotten tired of waiting for John to take me to do it. I'll get some contact lenses and finally be able to see well again. I get so many headaches trying to see the computer monitor, blackboard at school, etc. And to think, school is only 6 days away. It's been a nice break, though. Summer will be cooler. Three months is nice. ::grins::
