Today I...

Today I...

7:30: Woke up to Mr. Nielson's alarm (U2 song) but stayed in bed.
8:20: Kissed my babies goodbye for school.
9:00: At Gigs's insistence, I put on the movie Condorman. {one of Mr. Nielson's childhood favorites}
9:15: Ate steal-cut oats topped with my backyard peaches.
10:00: Finish watching Condorman with Gigs.
10:45: I hop in the shower with Gigs and consider throwing up, but I don't.
11:15: Joined Mr. Nielson, Gigs running errands.
12:15: Ate lunch at Cafe Rio
12:45: Went to Costco
1:30: Rolled the windows down, listening to "Wind Beneath My Wings" on the freeway.
3:20: Met the children at home after school.
3:30: Helped with homework 
4:00: I drove Gigs and Ollie to hang out with their favorite cousin, Van, who is going on a mission in a few months.

4:30: Jane and I make peach jam for gifts.
4:45: Claire helps.
4:47: Claire dips.
4:50: I tasted the jam; it was good but really sweet.
5:00: I make Jane go to the garage to bring me a grape Gatorade; I'm considering throwing up.
5:20: Mr. Nielson takes Claire for a motorcycle ride.
5:40: Mr. Nielson takes Jane on a motorcycle ride.
6:00: I clean up my mess so Mr. Nielson can make dinner. I'm not making dinner.  I'm still so sick.

6:30: Mr. Nielson makes dinner. 
6:35: Ollie makes himself yogurt with granola.

7:46: The lesson begins.
7:48: I ask Claire to take away Ollie's Luke Skywalker guy
7:49: I tell the children I changed my mind about the treats since they are stinkers. It's a good thing since I don't have anything planned anyway.
7:55: Lesson ends.
7:58: Ollie cries because we don't have treats.

9:15: I excuse myself to bed. I am nauseated.

10:50: Mr. Nielson comes to bed almost 2 hours after falling asleep with the boys.  This happens a lot.  Bless his heart!
11:15: Mr. Nielson and I are in bed. I snuggle him and tell him how much I love him.
11:15: Dreamland.

...but at least I made peach jam; 
I am just really proud of myself for doing that.
