Real ~ your plumber sounds like he's fixing everything!!! It's so nice to get house stuff done, especially when it will end up making your life easier.
Gaye ~ I am with you on the exorbitant community pool fees. We don't belong to the town pool (DS and DD do, but only for swim team purposes) so every time I take the kids swimming, it's at least $15-$20 a pop.
mommajb ~ I am thinking about you and hoping you see the light at the end of the tunnel. I will tell you that eating Paleo has greatly diminished my O symptoms and PMS mood swings, not to mention shortening the duration of AF from 6 days down to 4. Unfortunately, it has also shortened my cycles to 22 days, but I think that may be more perimenopause related than anything else.
MelW ~ I can only imagine the fallout from failing a student. Doesn't sound like fun at all. I am always so envious of your trail runs. Someday I'll talk my family into a west Canada coast vacation and join you up on those hill trails!
NRR ~ the wedding last night was SO much fun! There were lots of kids there, and DD2 was up on stage with the DJ, dancing with two of her best friends from kindergarten and having a ball. She even ate completely across the room with her friends (and the mother of the bride supervising). I barely saw her all night, except up on the stage dancing! DH and I kept looking at each other and saying, "Who is this child?!" DD1 also saw a friend from school there and they hung out together all night. DS found a somewhat younger boy to play with and I dragged him out on the dance floor a few times too. It was the kids' first wedding ever and they all thought it was tons of fun. I am really happy for the bride and groom as it is a second marriage for both of them and a fresh start after two very painful divorces. All in all, a lovely evening. And I danced enough for me to call it a RR!
Today I am taking DD2 to a birthday party and the hosting Mom asked me to stay and help supervise (it's a pool party in their backyard, she has a lifeguard, but wanted a little extra help). Twenty-four 6 year olds in a pool! Ack! Give me strength (she did promise me a margarita.....)
ETA: GO, BEC, GO!!!!!!!
