It all went uphill from there

Today didn’t have an auspicious start, but it got better. Ravenclaw awoke with a fever and feeling sick, and I woke up to a headache that rated a 7 on a 1-10 scale. I tried the new “rescue med” for when the headache “peaks” (as opposed to the low grade headache that ‘s always there), and had some side effects. Basically, you feel like crap for an hour, but then the headache gets much better.

Hufflepuff had 2 exams today, and she felt good about both. Well, photography’s exam was just printing photos, but her other exam went well. She has 2 more on Monday, and then she’s done with midterms.

ArielGryffindor had play practice today, and then her first performance was tonight. I wish I had been there to see her! I’ll be there tomorrow night, at her first performance where she has lines. The play is double cast, so she is in the chorus for 2 performances and in the speaking cast for 2 performances. She’ll have a good audience for her two shows with lines!

Gryffindor’s lunch today included a painted Ariel on cheese and some fishes and musical notes. It was a pretty cool bento box lunch, if I do say so myself. A perfect lunch to cheer her on in her Little Mermaid performance.

I was able to go to the grocery store alone today, which is always nice. I also came home to Hufflepuff’s friend P helping to clean and pack our living room. She asked if it was ok, um, yes! Feel free! She’s willing to help clean and pack in exchange for baked goods. Sounds good to me!

I was planning to go to the Temple, which didn’t work out, but we’ll go next week. I’m very much looking forward to it. This week is possibly the last one staying at the apartment of The Chosen One. Soon we’ll all be in the same town, and then in the same house! Squee!

Finally, I’ve found 2 of the 3 readings I’d like to do at the wedding – Hufflepuff reading Shakespeare’s 116th sonnet, Gryffindor reading Harry Potter (haven’t found that quote yet) and Ravenclaw reading 1st Corinthians 13, but not the King James version. In other versions the word Love is used in place of Charity. I just like the sentiment of the reading.

And now sleep – an hour earlier than usual! Yay!
