Quick Takes Volume 73
For the second day in a row I'm battling an unpleasant headache. I thought I was over it but then it hit me pretty badly a few minutes into Mass this morning. I'm wondering if it might be sinus related based on how my right eye and cheek feel. I hope I'm not coming down with something. Now is not a good time for me to get sick.
I'm getting down to crunch time with VBS. I have a bunch of little things to take care of and I have about two weeks to do it. I'm going to have to find a way to carve a couple of hours out of each day to take care of everything.
Madeline has a friend sleeping over tonight. Hopefully my headache goes away before her friend gets here. If not, I suspect I'll be miserable.
I don't think Madeline even likes s'mores, but they're on her list of things to do for tonight. Bryan and I have decided that we're going to do some karaoke, too. Madeline's not exactly thrilled about it, but we think her friend will enjoy it.
We've discovered that Katie is a potato snob. She will happily eat french fries and mashed potatoes, but don't even think about giving her a baked potato. Twice this week she has been brought to the point of being very upset that I had the audacity to put such a food on her dinner plate. So much for getting away from packaged potatoes.
I think I have to go and buy new basil plants. Two of them have already died. I had one inside and another over in the pool retainer wall garden. They both died at roughly the same time. The third basil plant I had in another garden is thriving. I'm determined to grow a basil plant inside so I can have fresh basil in the winter.
My niece graduated from high school last night. We weren't able to go to the graduation but I did get to see pictures. We're heading to my mom's on Sunday for a small party to celebrate with her.
