To all the brave men and women who sacrifice their lives so my family and I can live and enjoy ours, thanks will never be enough.
Cadence asked me today if I would please print her out a few coloring pages, so I grabbed my laptop to look something up. She watched as I typed in my password and remarked,
“Wow, Mom. You type really fast!”
I told it was because I’ve had a lot of practice, and that I took some typing classes back when I was not much older than she was because they were just starting to use computers in classrooms.
Yep, I blew my 9-year-old’s mind today when I lived in a world before cellphones and tablets and home computers.
Then she asked how fast I can type, and I told her I wasn’t sure anymore. The last time I took a typing test, it was around 90 words a minute. So we took a detour from the coloring page and found a website where you can test yourself and practice typing. You can check it out here:
And while I’m certainly not always this fast or accurate, I gotta say, I even impressed myself a little with this one:
You know you want to try it, too. 🙂
What happens when you decide to ignore the ominous skies and walk to a local bakery with your colleagues to grab a few treats for the office?
You spend the rest of the afternoon working on a damp sweater and slacks because the sky opened up when you were still two-and-a-half blocks from the office.
Rabbit Hole Bakery…your coffee cake was totally worth it.
Rough day. I haven’t had a migraine this bad in awhile. Started feeling it a little last night, but I was honestly surprised when I woke up and my head was still hurting. I tried to talk myself out of it–that once I got up and showered and got some coffee I’d be fine.
By the time I got to the office, I could hardly keep my eyes open without squinting. Had a meeting and found myself unable to complete a thought or find the right word a couple times during the conversation.
Decided to call it a day and head home.
Dizziness, light/sound sensitivity, nausea, and the kind of pain deep in my brain that just makes my skull feel like is has been stuffed full of heavy, jagged rocks.
Hoping to get some sleep and some relief and feel better tomorrow.
