I'm awake! Too disorganized still for a real post.

Vivid dreams continue... and part of the problem with the dreams is that some of them are so *realistic* that it feels like I'm living two days for every one. Thankfully, I'm not in pain in the dreams.

When I said yesterday that the pain was manageable? Strike that, reverse it. Ended up being a moderate pain day. Leading to a bit of back-and-forth with Elayna where she was trying to negotiate chores that I wasn't up to negotiating, and I just kept repeating "I can't get into this right now; my body hurts, and I need to lie down." Didn't need to repeat it *that* much. She's just unaccustomed to it, as it developed/worsened while she was in Florida. She ended up doing everything I asked of her. Eventually.

Today is registration/orientation day for middle school! So from here, I go forth and assemble all the paperwork they require for that. Fortunately, the orientation exists, so Elayna can get some questions answered and fears allayed; also fortunately, Adam can accompany us.

Excellent news: gwynraven is visiting! August 16-26. We will be open to hanging out with any Atlanta people who want to see/meet her.

Now I go drink coffee and assemble a registration packet.

Elayna 2006

(no subject)

Elayna is officially registered and oriented! She has met all but one of her teachers, and they all seem very nice.

And being in band gets her out of gym. Score!

And gifted no longer means just one class - here, like my school when I was wee, it's a track. So. She is in all gifted classes. Except health and band.

And I am so tired.

Life with 'song and Elayna

Elayna: "I want a snack. What should I eat?"

*'song offers a long litany of suggestions, starting with banana and grapes and including such things as wire, plastic, and subatomic particles*

Elayna: *sigh* "I don't know."

'song: "Well, go stand in front of the fridge with the door open and stare blankly for a few minutes."

Elayna: "Will that help?"

'song: "Probably not. But it's traditional."


'song: "Psst. Hey."

Elayna: "Yeah?"

'song: "I'm bored. Do something interesting."

Elayna: "I'm reading. That is interesting."
