I am the mother of twins, one boy and one girl, age 13. I work 3/5 time and go to college working slowly on my degree; one class a quarter is what I can successfully manage. My husband works and travels 2-3 days a month. I listed my interests elsewhere, and I recently became more interested in photograpy and am reading up on portrait photography. I am a health nut and so is the rest of the family. Running at a slow pace a couple of miles every other day with my kids at the local high school track is my main form of exercise and it is a time for us to be very close and talk about thinks as necessary.
Hay fever no longer bothers me. As usual, I had to survive the first few weeks without medication as I did not wish the side-effects as long as the acute period is self-limiting. Both kids will be in summer school shortly so they will still be busy with homework but will definitely have time to enjoy freedom from the long day's drag of regular classes.
Passed my class with flying colors. Home for the summer with kids, except for my part-time job which is 3 days a week...gives them a break from me then...lol I do assign tasks for each of them but try to leave time for them to enjoy themselves. Summer school session is a possibility they are each discussing...just the concept, not the actual classes, etc. So, we shall see. Neither needs to improve grades,
Hay fever still here...even with the overcast days recently. I do have a lot of flowers, but I always in past have got over hay fever shortly after warm/hot season started, so I am optimistic. I hate to take meds for it re it makes me drowsy. All in all, it is a small problem compared to what it could be.
Hay fever has got me...happens every year abut this time. I try to wait it out and usually after three or four weeks I adjust and sneeze and sniff less...lol I have several bottle brush bushes around house and hummers are attracted to the red color of the blossoms and we also feed them from feeders, so I tuff out the intermittant blossoming seasons.
