1. Today was some big “walk to school” day. So I made sure we got up early enough and I pulled out the monster of a double stroller we have, and out the door we went. We walked Aiden to school today, and it felt really good to be out walking!! At school they gave every kid (and whoever was with them) that walked to school a small orange juice, a donut, and a cool pencil sharpener. I want to make it an everyday thing, this walking to and from school, but it’s still pretty hot out. I got home and couldn’t wait to hop in the shower.
2. Ches’ first concert of the season was last night. It wasn’t bad! Ches made it out to be like it was going to be a miracle or epic proportions for it to come together. There were some really good things happening last night, and I was happy. He seemed pretty content with most of it, too, so that’s good. At the end of the concert, the band council presented Ches with some flowers and said they appreciate all the hard work he has done and that they think he’s doing a great job. With that said, the band students jumped to their feet, applauding and yelling. I saw some parents do the same, and that made me really happy. There are tons of problems there, but they are starting to appreciate him. yay!
3. For some reason I have been getting a lot of headaches lately. Huge migraine headaches. At least once every day. So I am thankful for a husband who is more than willing to pick up the slack when I’m in bed, in the dark, groaning out of misery and pain. I am thankful for ibuprofren, even though it doesn’t work half as well on me as it does on other people, at least it helps so I can function. Migraines suck, but I have a couple of helpers, and I appreciate that more than anyone will ever know!
