This time last year

This time last year

This time last year I’d just made the choice to homeschool Carly.

We’ve had a fantastic 2016/17 year. Well, honest to be spoken, there were days that I was so fed up with attitude that I would have gladly thrown her back into school. As we’ve got just a few weeks left I wouldn’t take back the experience or the choice to keep her home.

Deeder is entering 5th grade next year, and my goodness, is he ever tired. His seizures have been acting up on him, and all the side effects just have him overwhelmed. He’d like to fall flat on his face and just sleep for months.

Dizzy and busy

Dizzy and busy

I got snooze three times which had me up and shuffling around at 6:20.My head was pounding, a throbbing pressure I haven’t felt in two years. Having learned how to handle this, I went right to the cupboard and took my two tabs of Lamictal, a couple Excedrin. Swallowing those I looked around a bit and grabbed a few vitamins and chugged those down as well. As I got the coffee all set to brew I decided that if I didn’t feel better by the time being I had the kids out to the bus I’d skip today on my fasting schedule which I do every other day. 8:40–boys fed, dressed and at the bus stop. 8:55–riding bike with 5 year old Abegayle. Not cars wanted to stop for us to cross while the road looked more like a fast moving stream than a two way paved busy road. We made it into the building, hopefully I didn’t look drunk. On my ride home I still couldn’t really see straight and had a low ringing sound echoing through my head.

9:55, my vision is clear enough to write this post on my phone. While trying to park in my driveway I got the stone border that edges my corner flowerbed.

I don’t really know what compelled me to blog these details of my morning out, but I’m glad I did. Maybe time for a couple cups of coffee then a shower.
