Neti Pot Hell

Last night I used the Neti Pot to rinse out my sinuses. My cold is going on day five and Im pretty sure I have a sinus infection. After I did the rinse-- I thought my cheekbone and ear was going to explode. The pain was so bad. I'm so glad it subsided because I was seriously considering going to the ED.

I couldn't make it to the doctor yesterday, we had the closing arguments and then we were in the jury room. We will be locked in there until we have a verdict for all four counts. Ugh. I can tell we have a few jurors who are unsure. This could take awhile. Ugh. I'm hoping I can make it to the doctor today. Tylenol cold is not working. My fever and pain in my head and cheekbones will not go away. Please let me feel better soon. I hate this!!!

The boys played this adorable game last night called Fibber. Super cute!

I hope you all are doing OK. I'm sorry I'm such a whiner.

I have a cold

I also have jury duty. I have a lot of work to complete as well. I don't like falling behind at work.

People have stopped asking me about the house because the whole situation is just stupid. I'm dismayed at how long it is taking for the lien on the second loan to be negotiated. Please let us move into escrow!!!! I want to list our house.  

I'm sorry I'm such a poop head today. The left side of my face and head hurt and I just want to avoid the world-- unless I get some good news-- then I will slap a smile on my face.

Weekend recap

We had a terrific time in Tahoe. We hiked in Alpine Meadows in search of five lakes. We played at the beach. We walked to Obexers yesterday morning and watched planes leave. It rained on us on our walk home. As soon as we got back it started to pour! We were home by 5 p.m. so we could get ready for the week. It rained last night in Sacramento! It was beautiful. I'm hoping for some house news this week!!

Happy weekend

I welcomed Pedar home from Sierra Outdoor School with mojitos and rice crispy treats and a chicken dinner. We had a great evening in the backyard. The weather this week has been perfect!

Casey auditioned yesterday for the school talent show. Pedar walked him over in the morning and spoke to the teacher coordinating the auditions and she asked Casey iif he would want to audition after lunch recess. He said yes! He was the only person in his class that auditioned yesterday. He said there were four judges sitting in chairs. They asked him his name and grade and what he was going to do. He said beatbox. They smiled, but he said when he started they really smiled! At the end, they applauded briefly and then said," That was very good, Casey! You're in!" Casey was so happy!

Later that afternoon I called Casey on my way home and I told him how proud I was of him and he said,"I'm proud of myself Mom! I was nervous but I did it and I was good!" 

Cue the leaking!! I cannot wait for the last day of school. My darn jury duty better be over because I cannot miss this talent show!!

Sierra Outdoor School

Casey and Pedar had a terrific time at Sierra Outdoor School. They learned about the ecological process. They visited Calaveras Big Trees and Mercer Cavern. They saw some of the largest living trees on earth. They learned about raptors and taking care of the earth. Casey said it felt like an awesome two-night sleepover with friends--so did Pedar, wink wink! Everyone was asleep last night really early.

This was the silent mile. I bet the parents loved this hike the most!

Super fun camp leaders!

Skit night!

Casey slept on the top bunk and Pedar slept underneath!

Limbo time!
