I have had a headache situation that has been pretty consistent for about a month. I am a much more engaged mother without feeling as though putting my head in a vice would be a great idea. More often than not these days, I am doing all I can. That is not all I want, desire or feel needs to be done, but it's all I can. Please bless revelation hits soon as to how to make it disappear. So, while I've been living in a survival fog, here is what I've observed around here. They are very deep thoughts.

1. it is beyond the half-way point of October and is still 100 degrees.

2. while a large jar of peanut butter is nice in that I don't have to buy them as often, how does one get out the bottom 1/3 of the peanut butter without getting all peanut buttery? my knife is not long enough.

3. ski lessons have been scheduled for christmas break. beckham asks every day if he can go water-skiing yet. thankfully, he is just as excited when he reminded that this time, he'll be on snow.

4. seneca arrived in the family room today wearing a multi-colored skirt, a shirt with ballet shoes on it, 4 hair clips, one headband and a gold mardi gras necklace. she struck a pose and said, "Mom, I am gorgeous today!"

This is Boogs on Tutie's account, its the only way i can get into Lindsay's. 1. That sounds terrible. 2. cut the plastic jar in half now and use cling wrap to cover the new top. you're welcome.

Sister, 1. isn't there supposed to be an essential oil for that?! 2. you need to move somewhere else. i would kill myself if it were still 100 degrees.

I think you have to used a bread knife when you get to the bottom of the jar.

This is the real Tutz.
1. McCall is a delightful 70*.
2. Get a paint stick from the paint store. jk Buy two medium jars instead of one big one. OR, go to a kitchen store, or department, and get a cooking utinsel that will reach to the bottom of the jar, like a long frosting spatula.
3. Be sure he brings his snow clothes - not his swimsuit.
4. Seneca IS gorgeous!
Extra point: Headaches are sometimes caused from dehydration. Drink lots of water, more than you think you need. Force yourself to drink 8 glasses a day. See if it helps. Hope so!
