I had my scare for the day. Of course it was from one of my little pains in the arse. It started with a phone call. I looked down, saw the number come up on the caller ID and thought, "Uh-oh, it's the school."
I took a deep breath, held it in, released, picked up the phone and said, "Yes. Ok, what's up?
It was my son's English teacher, "Hi is this 'mini-man's' mom?"
I thought, 'What the heck ...Why do I get the phone calls from the school? I was a saint in school. No one ever had to call up my parents.'
What the....What could be so hard, he just has to wake up, go to school and freakin' sit there and now, get this ...LEARN! What an absurd idea, right?
"I know Mother's Day is coming up ..."
OMG....she is sooooo mad that she wants to make sure I do not have one ounce of happiness on Mother's Day! It must be bad. Brace yourself.
Mini-man's English teacher, Mrs B, continued, "I just wanted to tell you some positive things, about your son that will make you proud and really enjoy this Mother's Day weekend."
"Huh? You mean my son is NOT in trouble?"
"No, no, no, in fact we had a student led discussion, today, and he really showed leadership, he was very well-prepared and very thoughtful and very reflective about the large issues."
OMG! I was so grateful! Mrs B had so many positive things about mini-man - I wanted to push my arms through the phone and give her a great big hug!
Of course, it is, heck, it's MOTHER'S DAY WEEKEND!
And just like that, my troubles melted 'like lemon drops!'

Did you know that ibuprofen can contribute to increased levels of bacteria in the blood of endurance athletes
and is associated with kidney inflammation
and in some cases, mild kidney dysfunction?
Even more frightening, according to research, endurance runners who took an ibuprofen before and during an endurance race showed signs of mild kidney impairment and a low-level of endotoxemia, a condition which bacteria from the colon leaks into the blood stream.
So, what do you do when your sore, hurt or injured?
Scale back or, now get this ....REST!
Another absurd idea, right?
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
