Thursday Ten: Catch Up Mode Edition

1. I woke up yesterday, got out of bed, stood up and was immediately so dizzy I had to sit down while brushing my teeth. Got downstairs and was so queasy I couldn’t see straight so I plopped down on the couch and basically didn’t move all day. All day long, I thought, Oh crap. I’m getting sick. By the end of the day I realized that what I had was a migraine. The symptoms were different than my typical migraine – as my first symptom is usually an extremely high sensitivity to smells – but that symptom didn’t hit me until about 6 p.m. and after that I realized what I’d been dealing with all day. I popped several ibuprofen and put an ice pack on the base of my neck as a friend suggested (brrrrr) and by about 8 p.m., I was feeling quite a bit better.
2. Consequently, I didn’t get much done yesterday and my to-do list for today? SCARY. I’ve been chugging through, getting things done though – so it’s a little less frantic right now.
3. Finally figured out the new right hand strumming technique I learned last week and as of today, I am up to tempo (WHOOOO) and able to play the whole song (With some obvious goofs here and there because the Dsus4 chord after the G chord sometimes gets muddled. By sometimes I mean A LOT).
4. On Friday, I hit my fundraising goal for my breast cancer walk and I am thrilled. For those of you who donated and offered me words of support and encouragement: THANK YOU. It’s an amazing cause that deserves our support and I’m thrilled to be taking part and just amazed at the generousity of people.
5. Started learning “Crash Into Me” by Dave Matthews Band in guitar lesson today. This is not my favorite DMB song. Not by a mile. It vaguely feels like getting stuck playing “Viva la Vida” again.
6. American Idol rock week. Well… Hmph. Not sure how I feel about it. My favorite in the competition is Kris, but I wouldn’t have been surprised if he’d gotten the boot. I liked his version of “Come Together” – considering that it’s a pretty stupid song (have y’all ever listened to the lyrics?). Surprised to see Alison go, but I think we all figured Guyliner Adam wasn’t going anywhere.
7. By the way, Slash is aging surprisingly well. I’m stunned.
8. I had to fill out a learning style survey for The Princess to help the school select a teacher for her for 2nd grade next year. I am really hoping that the school talks to her current teacher to get a better idea of her learning style – she’s pretty smart and I am so worried about her getting bored.
9. This week I ordered some stuff from Sephora. I love Sephora. It’s not even just the products – I love the free samples too. If you’re a products kinda person, please check out Beauty for Babies at the March for Maddie site. This week there are going to be several lots up for bid – and they’ll clearly mark the retail price – that you can bid on to benefit the March of Dimes. Awesome, right? Check it out. Note: they can only ship to the US and Canada.
10. In preschool, Pumpkin somehow earned a gift card for free pizza for “reading”. (I’m not sure how that happened, because while I think my children are definitely smart kids, I KNOW my three year old isn’t REALLY reading). Anyway, tomorrow just me and my little Pumpkin are going out for a pizza lunch and I’m kind of looking forward to having a special lunch with her. And pizza. I’m looking forward to pizza.
