Spring Break! We're *Just Like* MTV
1. stay in jammies
This Spring Break, however, we have an insane amount of activity scheduled. Tomorrow alone we have two doctor's appointments and a birthday party. I should note that the birthday party is at our house. It's the double-digit, double-themed party for my ten-year-old twin daughters.
It's unclear to me why I scheduled two separate doctor's appointments on the same day as their party. Probably some of this scheduling happened before I started taking the ADHD meds. As I've noted before, the Adderall doesn't retroactively fix the stuff I messed up prior to being medicated.
Cookie and the Pork Lo Maniac's party is one of four parties my kids will be attending in the space of five days. I find it annoying that their social life is so much better than mine. I would schedule some social activities for myself, but I'd probably have to subtract sleep from my schedule in order for that to happen. So, you know, never mind.
One of the parties was this past weekend -- a sleepover birthday party involving six fourth-grade girls. The giggling went on until the wee hours for most of the girls. Not so much for Cookie, because Clonidine really drowns out the giggling, apparently. But the the Pork Lo Maniac was by turns weepy, cranky, and punch-drunk the entire next day.
Ah, Spring Break. Who needs Cancun?
