I told you I’d write the final eggs of last year before writing up this years…
I’m a hot mess. You are fine. Want to comiserate? Read the next paragraph. Just want the eggs? Skip down to EGGS.
Specifically, in case you’re wondering, I have adult diagnosed ADHD for which I have been able to engage in zero professional counseling for. All self-taught and self-trained self-modulation here! Can’t say I actually wish we could afford the medication for me, because I mostly like my brain, but a therapist checking up on me and giving guidance would be nice… especially since my 5th grade daughter has finally started actually struggling with it (instead of just enjoying the not insignificant benefits). ANYWHO I also have that wonderful neurological disorder known as migraines which actually, and this is so very comforting to learn, actually causes brain damage! Yep, that’s a thing. The pain isn’t bad enough, it has to actually have lasting effects. Yippee.
Just, you know, explaining why more than four posts a year on anything resembling a reasonable time table is a challenge, and to make you feel better about your own (I’m assuming, no offense) mess of a life. At least to let you know you aren’t alone in feeling constantly behind and overwhelmed.
For our final “not really an egg” Easter eggs, we attempted to make borax crystal eggs. I looked at a few tutorials online to figure out our best chances. I think I found this link to be the most useful.
There you have it, our borax crystal eggs. I had planned to attempt alum crystals as well to compare, but I forgot where I put the alum and didn’t find it until June, so maybe when the boy is old enough for this one we’ll do that instead.
