  • Mood:

Friday!

Medical
Nauseous. Gastrointestinal fun. Brain fogging up like yesterday. Vision screwy.

I was having an easy few weeks, and now this...

And there's always the exhaustion. That sounds minor, but it isn't; it's a big reason why I switched from the Lamictal...

Girl Scouting
Troop leader came over last night to pick up the permission slip for booth sales (I arranged for two days at a Kroger). Asked teasingly what I was doing tonight. "Going on a date with my husband!" Poked me about my lack of volunteerism. I reminded her that I'd booked the Kroger and that I'd be at the booth helping to sell cookies. She said okay, and left with the reminder that this troop depends on parent volunteerism...

So. In my e-mail to her today asking for a *clear* copy of the permission slips she e-mailed:

Sorry I can't volunteer tonight, but we've had dinner reservations for a week, and I didn't know you needed volunteers until last night. I want to help out with the troop, but I'm very limited by my medical condition. I was fine for a week, but then yesterday morning I had serious medical issues again - so I can definitely help supervise booth sales, but I really can't be the only person there, because I can't rely on being able to think straight or see straight on any given day, and that would be a disaster for the troop!

Okay, I lied about reservations, but dude, if she needed volunteers, she should give more than 24 hours notice.

And I still don't have the directions to the sleepover and the list of stuff Miss Kid needs to bring. And they're working on Thinking Day, which was an embarrassment last year (I volunteered to man that table, incidentally)...

Girl Scout Cookies
I have to turn in the form today! I'll post a list of who ordered what later. This is your last chance to make sure I have your order/have your order correct!

Volunteerism
Dude, that does chap my hide. I volunteer. I do the book fair. I do the Spring Fling. I did the class $WINTERHOLIDAY party. I'm doing the Valentine Jamboree in two weeks. All I need is the ability to sit down during these things. Body = fucked. But I do what I can, dammit.

Seriously changing Girl Scout troops next year. I know I keep saying that, but seriously, man.

Date
Adam and I tossed around the idea of going to seriously expensive restaurants, Bacchanalia and the like... but we settled on Maggiano's. Bacchanalia looks great, it's supposed to be the best restaurant in Atlanta, but it's got a prix fixe menu of $65. Each, not both. We can't really justify that on our current budget. We can go for lunch for $35. Some other time, when we get birthday money from Grandma. But for tonight's date: Maggiano's, and a long, leisurely browse through Borders - which we never get with Elayna around. Italian food, coffee, and one new book each. That is a good Adam-and-I date.
