Easter was a good day. I spent the first part of the day till afternoon with Kathy and her family and then went to Julie's for the evening. It was a wonderful day. I really had a good time. I enjoyed the day with Kathy and her children. I remembered to bring the candy for the kids but I forgot the gift certificates for the boys and the stuffed bunnies for the girls. Yup, talk about brain fog! A definite brain fog moment. I will be sending them to the kids this week. At least I remembered something, I suppose, but I tried so hard to remember everything.
Good Friday night ended up being a horrible night. At first I was upset that Natalie missed her lesson but then about 15 minutes into what would have been her lesson, it was a good thing she was absent because I was ill right in the middle of it and for the rest of the night. It was so upsetting! I was so exhausted and my chest was so sore the next day from it. I think I literally slept the entire day and night of Saturday. I was up maybe an hour or so twice all day long. I did have to run to the store because I was out of the basics like bread, milk, jello, you know, the tummy friendly food. Anyways, I was feeling much better by the end of the day but completely exhausted. I wasn't sure if I would be up for singing in church early in the morning and the Easter activities, but I was fine. I was one very tired girl when I got home, but that is nothing unusual.
I will be getting the tummy scoped on Monday. It isn't too much of a problem as I will be sound asleep while it happens. It is this week before the scope that will be difficult for me because I must stop all pain medicines except for Tylenol, and all arthritis medicine 7 days before which means it is day number 2 without any tramadol. I also must stop all tummy medicine and blood thinner medicine 3 days before the procedure. I am not looking forward to this week at all. I am just not. So far it hasn't been super bad but Tylenol doesn't do too much. It does help some, but not too much, enough so far and that is important.
Tonight I went to the homeowner's association meeting. We are planning a block party this summer. Boy, it will be huge. I have contacted 2 of my friends to see if one is available for face painting and balloon animals and the other for her sons' band. It should be rather fun. I have never attended our subdivision party so this will be a first for me too and I have lived here my whole life! Usually, we were out of town when they would have it or I was working or teaching or who knows what else! I am looking forward to it. I don't really know a lot of my neighbors as I keep close to myself a lot unless I am teaching. One of my neighbors would like me to teach her daughter piano, so she is going to call me. I am looking forward to that. That will be rather fun, a new student. I have room for a few more but not too many. I am almost full up to the rim for lessons. I am thankful for the students I have. Not only does it help to pay the bills (you know the never ending bills!) but for something to do. I really like teaching and I feel I was born to teach. I did like performing and at times I miss it, but generally, I think I was born to teach.
A note of randomness from the news today. Did you know that tax day has the most crashes than any other day of the year? I didn't know either. Just some random fact that they mentioned on the news.
Tomorrow I have to get up a bit early because I have some errands that must be done before teaching. I dread getting up early, but it is a necessity or I wouldn't be getting up early to go that is for sure! I am not a morning person! I never have been, never will be (at least at this point in my life!) More randomness, when I was small, my mother used to have to get me up about 15 minutes than the boys. I would come down the stairs and sit on the bottom stair in a daze until my brain realized I was actually up. Too this day, I still sometimes have to do that. It generally takes a few minutes for me to realize I am actually awake. It is kind of funny now when I do that.
Well, time to read for a few minutes before heading up the stairs to my lovely, wonderful, cloud like, super soft, warm bed. I hope you have a good night too!
