JenLove For your grandma.
Jo, I'm always amazed at what you are up to. 6 miles barefoot on the beach! Wow, lady!
Gaye, I'm living vicariously through you with all the partying. Have fun!
Shanti & Mel, I love the little differences in language!
That reminds me: one of the podcasts I listen to is by a Canadian, an Australian and an Englishman - three runners separated by a common language, so to speak. Good stuff!
DrJen, good to *see* you around!
Bec, congratulations on the weight loss!
To all the Dingoes out there. What a great group.
On school, I had one child who I felt was not being challenged enough, and now a more average child in 4th grade. We are up in the air about what to do with her for middle school, but might audition for an arts-oriented school which would take her from 6th - 12th. Auditions would be next fall, and she would probably try for a spot in their piano program, or band, which is the fall-back for those who can't make it in strings or piano, but are still musically inclined.
Work is overwhelming at the moment, and I am feeling very behind and stressed out. Then valentines were on the docket today - thank goodness my older DD and her friend helped my DS finish his so I could sit at the sewing machine with DD2. All in all, it went ok and just a few odd things to finish up. DH promised he would make supper. So I had better get back at it!
RR? What's that??
