Killing time

Jake and I are having a fairly lazy day. He felt a little feverish this morning and at 5:30 is still in his jammies. I went to the gym, brought Jonathan to and from the theatre, but haven't done much more than that myself. I did help Jonathan try to navigate his AP US History virtual school course. I can't yet tell if this is going to be a lot of fun or impossibly hard. Madi and Hannah are at Meme and Grampa Carlie's from last night until tomorrow morning. While Madi was frolicking in the sand I was expecting a few phone calls that had me a little stressed. The first one was from the nurse at the pediatrician's office about Madi's latest blood work. Her thyroid numbers have been "off" for about 2 1/2 years and we've been trying to normalize it while avoiding medication for that long. We're succeeding!! The nurse called back and the numbers are better than ever! I guess we'll keep buying the super expensive tropical supplement that seems to be doing the trick. I think the coconut oil is helping too. Incidently, coconut oil is expensive for oil, but WWAAAYYY cheaper than the Limu juice. (Also coconut oil is a lot cheaper at Walmart than Publix.) The second call I was waiting for hasn't been returned. It was to the guidance counselor at the local high school. Since it's pushing 6pm, I'm guessing I won't be hearing from that woman today. Madi is very eager to take a class at the high school. I'm trying hard not to act like Marlin in Finding Nemo. Madi thrives with competition, so I know this will be good for her. I'm just not ready to be at the mercy of the school schedule. She'd not ready to relinquish all her freedom either, as seen by her only looking to take one class right now. We have to actually get in touch with the guidance counselor to get things rolling though. Well I got on here while I was trying to decide what to do about dinner. It's just me and Jake and he'd offered to buy dinner at least for himself, but since he doesn't know where his wallet is, the $2 he got for mowing the lawn yesterday isn't going to go very far. Jonathan is home now, and is eating some bbq pork, but there's not a lot of that. He will be leaving soon for more theatre business. Mike has been travelling far too much. Aside from missing him terribly, I've not been in a good meal planning routine. Theatre and a week-long evening vbs haven't helped that any. We are pretty low on groceries and even lower on motivation. I'm currently leaning toward frozen pizza.

So what did you decide on for dinner. I think Jake is very sweet to offer to buy himself his dinner. :) That's great that Madi's bloodwork came back so well.
