dyk our former bus bully (I think I've posted about him before) that we ended up having to report is in Abi's class

dyk Abi and Dek both report that he's not being a bully anymore and is actually " a very funny dude"

dyk when I came in with the homemade cupcakes for the party, he says (really loud) Aw yeah! Abi's mom never lets us down!

dyk LOL but that's right!!!!! Boom. haha

dyk 19 for Abi's class, one for Dek's teacher, one for the principal, 6 for our neighbor, one for the front office lady who used to not like me but now sees my awesomeness HAHA and we still have a dozen at home

dyk I can't eat them but they are super pretty

dyk the kids were so excited too to know that most of the ingredients they probably had at home

dyk here's Abi working

dyk and the final product -- I LOVE the labels done in their little kid handwriting -- it's just precious!

dyk and here is what the teacher's looked like when we gave it to her:

dyk I went and did the science lab with Abi's class today

dyk they LOVED it and were great little scientists and made a beautiful product

dyk they were just all giggles (even the boys) that we had a secret from Mrs. C in that we were making it for her, too and I put it all together at home and took it back for them to give to her just after lunch

dyk she was REALLY surprised -- we even had a card all the kids had signed.

dyk Sean is cycled into depression again

dyk not too terrible, but noticeable by him, which is new

dyk we had about 8 days of bipolar freeness

dyk part of it, I KNOW, is that his shin splints are NOT healed and he's done EVERY THING right and we haven't SPOKEN it but I think he's worried he won't be able to do the half marathon

dyk and I hate to break it to him but apparently, this half marathon is about ME not him. LOL

dyk in that I had to do it to discover what I discovered

dyk lord knows it wasn't for the NON EXISTANT weight loss

dyk Joy, was your comment about my blog? dyk I'm super nervous about the half marathon which is silly b/c I've routinely in the past months gone anywhere from 8-11.5 miles BY MYSELF (meaning, no route and no one cheering or handing me water at every mile lol) dyk so 13.1 with full support and friends and family and a cheering section of thousands..... piece of cake right? dyk I'm so worried about need to potty (as in 2 not 1) during the race dyk my stomach is so jacked up with nerves!!!!

DYK I am trying so hard to get on board and post, but I'm still having problems.  I just got kicked out, then when I logged back on it told me I was "unauthorized to post comments".  Plus, my username now has capital letter, which it never did before.

DYK you would believe everything I've had going on.  Will update more another time.

DYK I'm going to NC with the kids for another long weekend.  My parents are still in the rehab center/nursing home.  My dad's recovery (from the chainsaw accident) is slow, and he's at risk for being amputated.  It's a week-to-week situationb, but the last two doctor visits were more positive.  He simply, simply cannot have that done.  Sure, he can live like that, but it will emotionally devastate him.

DYK meanwhile, Mom's having a blast.  She's getting the socialization she needs.  She may never make it back home, but I think my dad will.
