7:30am
It's Big Boy's birthday. He's 4 today!
8:30am
For Earth Day ... I decided to stay home ... I hope to get some cooking done today. And, maybe some crafts ...

Got my mom's replacement phone and it still doesn't work. I think it is the battery. Waiting for a reply from the company.

9:45am
Exercises done. Nikky wants to do more!
12:15pm
I made Sweet Potato Latkes for lunch. I think I had my mom shred too many potatoes and I didn't put enough of the other ingredients to compensate. I was distracted ... I had sliced my thumb-tip on the cuisinart blade, so I was working one-handed ... anyway, they fell apart in the pan ... so, basically, we had sweet potato hash browns ... but, it was good, anyway. Some left for dinner tonight.

My thumb hurts ...

1:30pm
Must go use neti pot ... realized I was having one of my weird auras last night and this morning which sometimes precede a migraine ... can't have a migraine this week! I have a new store to set up on Thursday! I have found that sometimes my migraine is actually part of a sinus problem, so the neti sometimes helps that.

Done. Had to take earache medicine, too ... hate having such scarred eustachion tubes ... maybe this new MSM I'm starting to take will help. Some say that visible scars seem to heal. I wonder if internal scars heal, too ... only time will tell! I've got a lot of scars on my arms and one on my knee that I'll be watching from when I was a kid.

I've been reading so many informative posts in the FB ReWilding group (started by Daniel Vitalis and his partner, Ali Schueler). It really gives meaning to Knowledge is Power. Good stuff! Things I wish I had grown up knowing (or remembering ... much of it is damaged instinctual knowledge, really ...)
