I almost didn't get up and go to Taekwondo today, I turned off my alarm when one of my kids woke me up at 3 am. I still happened to wake up, and couldn't quiet my mind again, so I got up and loaded the kids in the car, with smoothies in hand, and we made it. I was afraid I'd still be too weak, but we mostly worked on technique (rather than core-strengthening torture), so it worked out well. I did have to put my knees down a little sooner than usual when we did a little core strengthening of holding a pushup position, but overall it was good.
My son also went to his class after mine, and did much better than he has for a while. Ever since the hornet incident he's more inclined to be in fantasy than reality, and has had trouble focusing. He's also worried about his first loose tooth and starting kindergarten next week. The other problem he's had lately was that when I was sick I let him play xbox as much as he wanted...not good for getting back into reality.
I still have a couple sore spots in my throat, so I've been making lots of egg drop seaweed soup http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipedepictor7x.cgi?1049. It's very soothing and nourishing. I like to make it hot and sour.
