Friday Five...

1. Well, that migraine kicked my butt! It came in waves, so just like the last time I had one this bad (it's been over a year, thankfully), I was able to get out and go to the library -- but then I was wiped! I spent most of the day in bed after that, whimpering ;)

2. My theory is that lack of sleep leading up to migraine days makes the migraine worse (since I remember thinking after that last bad one, "Oh, at least I caught up on some sleep" -- which is exactly what I thought this morning when I woke up). DH's response? "Well, start sleeping then!" Ah, if only it was that easy ;)

3. On another subject, E is being tested next week. I have to admit I'm nervous -- not because I care that much about how she does, but because they're taking all this time to do this...and I started it by complaining (well, mentioning, at least) that E was bored in 1st grade. It makes me feel like I'm getting preferential treatment (or my kiddos are)...which makes me think I'm the squeaky wheel. *sigh* At the same time, I don't want to just stand by while E loses her love of learning -- it's a conundrum!

4. We're going to try and hike on Sunday just west of where the big fire was earlier this week. We could see the smoke (quite clearly) from our house, and it's been gone now for two hopefully the roads are opened and we'll be able to enjoy the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. I can't wait to see if the leaves have begun to turn!

5. Classes started yesterday, except I couldn't sit up long enough (or think clearly enough) to actually do anything. So I'm already behind. But, thinking positively, surely some of the students are, as well, so I should be able to catch up quickly (one hopes).

5 1/2. I stayed up late reading Wednesday night (hm, maybe that had something to do with the migraine, as well?), and it frustrated me. I liked the story, liked the characters, liked the writing style -- but there was some serious lack of explanation in places, and at the end, I felt like I was still in the dark about some major points. ARGHHHH! up, I'm going to read something very transparent, I think (or at least, something very well explained/defined).

Happy weekend, hehe :)
