yep, went to bed early last night and woke up this morning groggy, I think I got caught in the middle of a deep sleep part of the sleep cycle, I kind of feel dazed. I will go to bed early tonight too. DD slept all afternoon yesterday. It was good for her, she has had a hard semester and is down to 1 paper and one final, so she needed the emotional release of the crying, and all the sleep too I am sure.
DD was very pleased with himself, many many people congratulated him on how well he spoke and what a good talk it was, so lots of ego boosting. Plus I am sure he was happy to be done with it. While it is an amazing experience, it is emotionally draining. He slept all afternoon as well. He has only got today and tomorrow left of classes. Then he has IB Assessments on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday (one a day), then the school's finals week is next week-but he is exempt from all of those exams so he will essentially be done, except for his French IB Assessment is actually the Monday after graduation.
He is graduating in the top 10% of his class. Except for Valedictorian and Salutatorian our school district doesn't do any other rankings except the top 10%-which they have to do for the lottery scholarships. On his graduation robes he will have all sorts of "cords" they hang around their necks for "Graduation with Distinction" for "National Honor Society" (he was president of that), for the "Top 10%" and for "IB Diploma". His tassel is different too because of the NHS. He is very proud of himself.
Today we drive DD back, and I will bring home the rest of her stuff minus what she needs for the next 10 days. Amazing what that kid managed to fit into that dorm room!
Alrighty, I don't know how it could be true but I am retaining water. Well I know I didn't drink enough, but I sure lost a lot! Anyway puffy fingers this morning. Today is not the day I will make up for it by drinking either since I will be in the car all day. While it would be a great way to get enough water, it is obviously not great in terms of places to then expel that water. I didn't get on the scale-basically forgot.
Busy weekend is almost over.
