JG - There is a phenomena I read about called "die off" where, supposedly, one can have yeasty symptoms from killing them (they release the same off-gas in death that they release in digestion, so you get that affect, again, supposedly) which can lead to "brain-fog", head-aches, fatigue, flaring rashes, etc. I never experienced anything like it, but it was mentioned often enough to think it could happen to some
Lofty - I ordered a set of Fred books, speaking of math. I like how integrated it is, and conversational, and hopefully fun. They like to do math before bed as much as they like to read. So they have math workbooks - Im thinking the Fred books will be good for that.
RR: hike, big hike with the dogs. The route is about 6-7 miles but with several ft. of elevation gain and then loss (4000 ft. over 3.5 miles I think, then back down). I was toast, and so were the dogs ...
NRR: I maimed one of them. She went from limping a little at the halfway point to hobbling the last few miles. What could I do bu make her keep going - we had to get back to the car. The pads of her feet are trashed, peeling off in hunks. When we got to the parking lot, there were bloody footprints where she was walking I feel awful, but on the other hand, Ive done this hike with them before and she was fine, and my other dog is fine, so I dont know what happened. Good thing this dog likes to lay around a lot. Apparently it takes a week or more to heal
Epic quantities of food after the hike. Several hard workouts over the last few days and not enough food, clearly. I think I just hit satiation after 5 hours
On math, I agree with what you've all said (of course). I admit to being the weaker link in the math dept. in this house and I consciously would NEVER say something like "wait till dad gets home", but math is really dh's language (physics major). You'd think he'd be able to write an essay
