So, I'm crazy busy birth-wise from now till mid september, but I really want to have a coffee night. I NEED to have a coffee night! Who is willing to plan something six weeks out, to humor me, so that I can have a coffee night? Would Thursday the 16th of September work for anybody, or is it too far away to commit? I have to plan a bit out, or I'll run out of room for it before we get there! I'm calling chipotle and caribou at 16 and Crooks.

Who wants to play?!

So far so good for me!
I haven't had Caribou in forever!
Hopefully we'll get a good turn out if it's being planned this far in advance.

Michelle Renee, I promise. I have four women due the first week in September, on top of my kids starting school for the first time ever. I am thinking that by the 16th, a bit of my storm shall be passed, and though I'll prolly not yet be recovered, I will hopefully, at least, have some of them passed and be REALLY really ready for a night out. Glad you two can probably come!

Sounds good.
Let me know if you want any MEAP materials for your kids. It totally sucks the amount of testing they will have to sit through but if you want the sample release items to at least show them the crap they will face - I can point you in the right direction.

We got scholarships and financial aid up the wazoo to send them to a private school. They don't do the MEAP (thanks to goodness!) in any grade, and only do one part of a standardized test at the end of the year in third and fifth for math. But thank you...I might take you up on it for E for the math part.

Can I be a total pain in the butt? If I changed the date to the 14th (tuesday rather than thursday) could you all still come?

How about this week? Perhaps Thursday 9/23? I need a day's notice to work out the details with DH.
