2. I have found the BEST remedy for not being able to sleep this week. I have a hard enough time falling asleep at a reasonable hour anyway, much more so when my man is out of town like he was this week. Well; Derek happens to work with a guy who plays a mean Indian flute. When Derek met him he came home and told me about this guy, and that he even won a Grammy for his music. Well ... I looked him up and Derek was just a couple of letters off. It turns out he won a Nammy - the Native American Music Awards; still an honor, I'm sure.
The coworker was so nice, that he gave Derek a couple of CDs of his music. I decided to play one of them the other night and I was out like a light. I'm telling you, I still haven't heard past track 2 because I am instantly relaxed and right off to sandland. I'm not sure if he will take that as a compliment that I use his music to sleep, but thank you, dear Golana for helping me find a non drug remedy!
3. Having kids grow up and into adult shoes stinks! I had to buy my 8th grader a new pair of sneakers yesterday in 5 months his foot grew from a size 7.5 to a 9.5! Unfortunately, they don't make cheap men's sneakers.
I will leave you with some pictures of my daughter yesterday who had a serious case of static electricity going on.
