I am really glad that last week is over! I visited my thyroid doctor (endocrinologist) on Monday to find that I had been on too much thyroid hormone and it sent me the wrong direction on my labwork. I could definitely tell. My heart started pounding again and I was so super tired and couldn't sleep or focus. I think I am much better now. I stopped the medicine and am taking a beta blocker for a few days to slow things down. I lost 6 pounds this week because of it! I have slept much better the past few nights.
I started after school tutoring. I get home at 5. It makes for a long day but I am so very thankful for the opportunity to make some good money without doing anything too stressful or time consuming. It is Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I think the hardest part of all for me (and if you are a teacher, you will understand) is that my recess duty falls on Tuesday and my morning duty falls on Wednesday. On Wednesday, I leave here at 7 at get home at 5. I am not used to that! I really like my tutoring group, though. I have a group of 6 first graders and we work on math skills. I actually really enjoy it and the kids.
Next. On Tuesday night, Ben accidentally left the patio door a little open and a mouse got in the house. Oh yuck! We have never had a mouse, I am proud to say, although I did read online that just because you have a mouse doesn't mean your house is dirty...It would have been fine with me, except that he woke me up at 1 a.m. on Tuesday night to tell me about it. He wanted to go to the store and get glue traps right then! Do you think I went back to sleep? Why, yes I did-at 4:30 a.m. It was terrible! It made for an extra hard Wednesday. We did get the mouse on Wednseday night.
What else? Oh, that's about all that went on here. I have been working really hard to meal plan, shopping list plan, and budget and I think I am seeing some results. We are really trying to make a difference in our spending. I hope to share more on that later.
I will try to take some photos of Sarah today for 43 weeks. I don't know what caused me to take a weekly picture, but once I started, I couldn't stop. And, we are almost to a year, so I would hate to stop at this point. I guess when she hits a year, I may just go to monthly. I mean, I will take her picture through the week as we do things, but as for a count, I will do monthly.
