    2019-05-28 Tyrannosaurus Tuesday

    I’m certain that you thought it was Taco Tuesday. You probably woke up this morning, like I did, thinking about tacos. No? Ok. Yesterday I was just mad. Mad, I say, about everything.

    About a week ago I was freaking out because my Fitbit was reporting that my period was like 5 days late. Crazy thoughts go through one’s mind in times like that.

    I’ve had an earlier than typical morning because I had to get C to school by 7:20 for a Spanish study session. /yawn Had we not had the annual IEP multi-disciplinary meeting yesterday afternoon I would not have known. The Spanish teacher called it out in her summary statement. That was after I asked if […]
