Cheerful note: NetFlix informs me that Magic Mike will be arriving in my mailbox today. Isn't that thoughtful of them? I didn't even remember it was on the list!

Quick note on Thug Life: )

Today, we score one for the college student who is studying Human Nutrition this semester. FionaPie has been struggling with some tummy issues and I kind of owe PB (eldest daughter) props for pointing us in the direction of gluten sensitivity. She definitely showed a lot of those symptoms! The potential problems from malabsorption were a little bit worrisome, so we hit the doctor's office yesterday to get on the path to more information and (hopefully) resolution. We’ll have the blood test results -- a "gluten panel" and a CBC to check for simple deficiencies -- in a week or less. In the meantime, the girl is greatly encouraged and has the doc’s permission to to experiment with pulling glutinous things out of her diet to see how that makes her feel. As he put it, if it is nutritionally balanced and makes her feel better, then he can support it no matter what the blood tests say (because sometimes they’re inconclusive and nobody wants an endoscopy thingie down their throat). She's got a pretty good food/symptom diary started, and I'm trying not to choke on mommy guilt.

Even the most awesome D&D character has one ability score that's a bit low, and I guess hers is Constitution. Or something.

Rollicking headache today, complete with light sensitivity. AWESOME. But I have a full and potentially awesome day ahead, so I’ll take some meds and plug through it. Might need to look at why I seem to be clenching my jaw when I sleep again, because that's (as we say in Holland) no ghouda.

I still really don’t *like* getting up at 6 a.m. to make hot breakfast (too bad, so sad, right?), but it clearly makes a difference in the quality of our morning and the time I get to work, so I hope to make peace with it soon. I think it helps that the new clock function Android has updated onto my phone has a very twitchy “snooze” button for the alarm. I never know for sure if I’ve hit snooze or just turned it off . . . and Hungry Fiona is usually lurking in the kitchen. I figure I’ve gotta get gracious about this, because suffering is optional, right?

Testing at TKD for my brown belt tonight. Unaccountably nervous about that – like, butterflies and everything. Then KiraDeara leads her parent-teacher conference at 7:40 p.m., followed by the younger girls spending the night at [livejournal.com profile] agrnmn's place and going to school with him tomorrow to work on Projektz. And...LadySadie is having some friends over tonight for cake/ice cream and a sleepover to celebrate her 18th birthday. Thankfully, [livejournal.com profile] diermuid is a hero and will be making the cake today.
