So we are running a fundraiser at the school via the PTA called the Penny Battle. The kids bring in pennies to put in their class jars and silver coins into other class jars. See the silver coins count against the class total. It's been interesting watching these K-5 grade kids get into the spirit of competition just for an ice cream party. A few of the classes had enough coins to go to a second jar so being the volunteer in charge I brought those extra's home to get a head start on the counting. Good grief coins weigh a ton. Too bad counting those coins doesn't get me fitness points cause it came out to $125 in coins 56 of which was just pennies. And that was just the extra's. Tomorrow I bring home all the currently collected coins to get a total before week 2 starts. I am sure to get my steps in again tomorrow as it will take quite a few trips to get 22 Qt size containers of coins (most of which are full) from the school to my car and from my car to the house. Then comes the fun part of counting those coins. Great bonding time with my 11 year old though.....if you ever want an activity to do there you go.
But here is the good news I SLEPT LAST NIGHT!!!!!
Yup this lady got her some sleep. Although it was medication induced my legs didn't interfere and I got some sleep. Still have a cold slowly getting worse but I am working through it. And feel better emotionally for it. Not saying the depression is going away but it is less. I had a good day today. I may have spent most of it in the school caffeteria (which let me tell you if you have never been there during lunch it is loud) and then counting coins but you know what it was over all a good day..
