What a week!

It's finally spring here in our part of the world, and She hulk has been outside as often as weather allows. We had two snow days last week, Thursday and Friday. One because of freezing rain possibilities and the second because we actually got it and it knocked out power to something in the area of 27, 000 people. I was woken up to the buzz of the power going out, and the rest because our CO2 alarm went on the fritz without power. She hulk was anxious all morning of course, and a little spazzy since we didn't know for sure about school until I decided that even if it wasn't canceled she wasn't going. The man saved us from our cooling house at 10am and took us to the in-laws. We didn't get home until 8pm, and power had only been on an hour by then.

Saturday we did birthday dinner at the in-laws since our birthday is was Monday (we share the same birthday). She did fairly well considering all the stress and excitement in so few days.

She's been taking Melatonin to help her sleep, and though it's a natural alternative, it's still something I would rather avoid. Weekends she goes without because she can sleep in all she wants if she can't sleep. I've been letting her sleep in until 8am and the extra half hour seems to help, though even she has said if she could sleep until 9am, she'd be much better off. I agreed, but fear for high school.

All in all, it's been a good week. We've had some spaztic mornings, and some defiant nights/fights, but generally, it's been manageable.

The mini hulk and I built a composter and planted some seeds today and she hulk was excited to see that when she got home from school. not too excited she wanted to rush outside more than help me fill the composter, but I was expecting her to be upset we didn't  save her a pod to plant some seeds in, and that mini hulk got to garden and she didn't.
