I registered Amelia for kindergarten yesterday. *sniff*  I brought all 58 thousand pieces of required information, and I didn't break down into tears. I expect that will occur at next week's Kindergarten Roundup, where the parents and children will be given a tour of the school, go through the cafeteria line for a special treat, and students will get to hear a story in our media center. (Hrm. Must find alternate childcare for K. Woo.)

As for the goblin eating my brain, it's still here. The neurologist upped the dosage on prednisone to 60 mg per day on Tuesday night. I started taking it Wednesday. I had an allergic reaction Wednesday afternoon, where my tongue went numb, my lips and throat were swollen, and I had a trip to Northside Hospital. Considering Predinisone is one of those meds they give you when you have an allergic reaction (whee!), they gave me even more Benadryl (I took one immediately upon noticing the reaction) and Dilaudid, Reglan, and Prevacid (which helps with allergic reactions).

Tom's sister picked up the kids so they wouldn't lick anyone with swine flu while we waited 30 to 45 minutes between every single thing to be done at the hospital (having a nurse look at me, having the doctor look at me, having my throat x-rayed, having the nurse give me the damned drugs already, having the doctor look at the x-rays, having me discharged). We managed to watch most of the Presidential press conference and Lost at the hospital. The kids were thrilled to eat McDonalds for dinner at the hospital and get time with their aunt and uncle.

I have an appointment with the neurologist on Tuesday. No, I'm not taking any more of the megadose of prednisone. I had a massage yesterday which felt good even though I got a bonus dose of hand-fluttery Reiki above me. I just closed my eyes and hoped for the best. (I paid for NMT.)

While the kids were in preschool today, I did a whole lot of nothing. I read my book (The Friday Night Knitting Club), I drank an overpriced coffee, I did a quick medical appointment (a thryoid ultrasound - took 15 minutes), returned some clothing to Target, and listened to a bunch of NPR podcasts.  There was a whole lot of me time in there. I'm trying to bank this up since summer is coming. :)

Yesterday was Amelia's first day of school.  She loves her teachers and had a blast. The drop-off was rather smooth.  I saw at least 2 kids crying and trying to escape the room to go with their parents. Luckily, the 3 year old teachers are freaking spry!  She had a small accident, but so did another kid. :(  She got so into playing on the playground that she waited too long to go potty.

Tom took yesterday off to take care of a few things in the morning. He then spent the afternoon starting work on his Great Project of 2007: building a garage workshop.  Last weekend, he spent over $500 in lumber, peg board, fasteners, and various other things. He was armed with a 10% off coupon and a strict shopping list.  Since Tom doesn't drink or do anything else "bad for him", I encourage the home repair projects. He spent a few hours measuring twice, sawing once. :)

Katie and I spent the morning at the library and puttering around. The afternoon was spent with the girls napping and mommy running out to get a pedicure. :)  It took over an hour and it was absolutely delightful. While I was there, I had my eyebrows waxed. For $8, they look fabulous! 

Unfortunately, my nagging headache (over a week now! Whee!) added nausea. I took a phenergan at 5:30 and went into zombie mode. I stumbled through making dinner (the ever popular chicken and something; version bbq chicken with pasta). The girls were in bed by 8:15, I was asleep by 8:30. With the exception of Katie waking up at midnight and needing her binky and some more water, I slept through until 7:30. 

Today starts my new experiment: no artificial sweeteners. I'm wondering if my use of aspartame and ace-k (the sweeteners in Coke Zero) are contributing. Since ace-k is a rather new sweetener, it could be contributing. This morning I've had a couple of cups of coffee and a huge glass of OJ (to get my cold fix).  I'm running out in a bit to pick up some regular Coke and some other groceries.    Let's see what happens!
