The Forget Me KnotsThe consequences aren't pretty. When I forget my meds, I have very little patience and my mood sours quickly. Cookies dunked in coffee is my favorite breakfast.

It will counter the sleepy side effects. Grab your keys and name tag. Seize the day.

Missing PiecesThis was inspred by a conversation between myself and a second grade student. It went something like this:
Student:" What are we doing today?"
Student: *big sigh* "I already did a puzzle with a kindergartner on the bus and she had extra pieces."
