    Yep. It's going to be painful and will likely take me days to get everything uploaded.

    That's excellent! Keep doing that. How long is your mum staying with you?

    Awww. I guess your boys are just going to have to take over doing all the stuff she's been doing until you're all better, right?

    The mechanic is here doing the rego checks on both cars. $$$$

    Yeah, that's all very expensive, right?

    My sister sent me the most beautiful lilies. They came in big buds but have opened and are now breathtaking. I wish I could plant them.

    Dinner has been had. Steaks with Parmesan encrusted Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes with brown sugar and cinnamon butter.

    Now I'm off to smoke my medicine, before cake! I feel almost human for the first time in about 4 days.

    They sound lovely!

    The rego check for both is okay - but there's maintenance issues that need to be dealt with. That's where the expense is.

    You can have the brussels sprouts, Bry. The rest of it sounds good, though.

    I haven't done a lick of writing yet. *sigh*

    So, my mother and I managed to buy a lot more stuff at Costco than originally planned. Then we visited the fancy supermarket where I have my games meetup. We went there for two things and left with a full cart. That's pretty much all our shopping trips.

    So glad you feel human, Bryan! I'm slowly getting there myself.

    I helped my kid study for his math(s) exam. He's smart but he tells himself he's dumb and it prevents him from really excelling. And it hurts me to hear him say it. I asked him after we'd worked for about thirty minutes if he felt more confident in his abilities and he said, "Yes, but it killed my soul". I think he takes after me. Drama, drama, drama.

    I always find it interesting when people tell me I'm really smart. I feel I'm of average intelligence with a good knowledge of trivial facts. I'm too awful at math to be truly smart.

    Being awful at maths does not make you not smart. There are many different ways a person can be smart.

    So why does being good at math equate with being 'truly smart'? I know lots of people who are absolutely brilliant who need a calculator to add 2 and 2. And I know lots of people who are good at math but are absolute idiots when it comes to life.

    . Don't sell yourself short.

    Agreed. Totally!
