Thursday is here, which means it's time to share three thoughts--even if the person asking you to share three thoughts doesn't feel like sharing much of anything herself.
1. I've been sick since
Saturday with a hacking cough and sinus pressure that has not yet
caused my head to pop straight off my shoulders. But it's coming. It can only be a matter of time.
2. What makes the above ten thousand times worse is that I've missed the summer-like weather we've had. All I can do is glance longingly from inside during the few points in the day I actually feel like
3. The pity party is now over.
4. (Because three is only a suggestion.) On Saturday, Son is giving a presentation at Virginia Commonwealth University as part of the Chesapeake Bay Governor's School Science Symposium
. He'll be discussing his senior project for Governor's School which involved creating an underwater microphone. It also involved many
months of frustration, several trips to Radio Shack (there are no Radio Shacks in Mathews, by the way), a few canoe trips to the Gwynn's Island bridge, and lots more that's way beyond my comprehension. Hopefully he'll be delivering the speech in layman's terms (that include diagrams with stick figures for old people whose brains stopped working on precisely the exact
same day that their child--who is now delivering scientific speeches about underwater inventions to a panel of judges--was born). Either way, I am very proud of his accomplishments and look forward to his talk.
4b. (Because I can't leave Daughter out.) Daughter played her first varsity soccer game Tuesday night. Even though I was so sick I could hardly see straight, I sat in the stands and watched. Mathews lost but we played Gloucester which is a far larger school. All things considered, they did fairly well considering they haven't had much time to practice. Daughter played most of the second half, and although it's vastly different from JV, I thought she did very well and am very proud of her.
Now it's your turn to share three things or two things or six things or four things. Whatever you want.
Anything at all.
