Well, I have a golfball sized lump on my throat as a result of last night's kitty misadventures, and a slight scratchiness to my voice.
No pain swallowing, though, or talking, so I'm figuring that we're just dealing with bruising, and probably not too much at that.
So yes -- all may feel free to continue to mock my goofiness. :)
Robin had a lousy dentist appointment this morning. They are continuing to mess with her rubber bands, and it's frustrating the heck out of her. She came out crying again.
She recovered though -- knocked a fat A plus on her Chinese culture test, and conceived of an "extra credit report" in math.
She is nursing a fond dream for once she is free of the braces involving massive amounts of "teeth-rotting foods".
She figures that between her own cash and fair contributions from her father (who according to *her* backs her entirely in this venture), she can put together a reasonable budget of $30.00.
Her goal is to put together a supply list of the maximum amount of tooth-rotting foods within that budget.
I had to go to the grocery store at lunch time. Robin went with me, and while I was picking stuff up she took a sheet of paper into the candy aisle and started recording data.
I figure it's a good exercise in calculating unit prices.
Plus she's having fun. *g*
Hell is a twelve year old niece who IM's only in netspeak.
*rolls eyes* Oh God -- she apparently got a cell phone for her birthday.
I'll tell you right now it wasn't for any sort of security measure.
(this is the oldest daughter of the useless brother, in case anyone is wondering).
