That photo cracked me up, too. I'll bet CAH loved it! Yes, the infusion helped tremendously. Without it, I could not even have made it through the weekend. I just wish insurance covered it. Oh, well, it is worth it to me. So glad you have someone to help you unpack, especially family. I can hear the excitement in your voice. Don't forget to take more pictures! Give Harlowe a cat kiss from my baby!

I love that barn so much, it's very symbolic to me. My family is @ an hour & a half away, Adrian's too. My sister came up on Saturday to help me unpack, what a big help she was! We are getting close, I think the end is in sight.


Hope you had a great first day back!! Is the infusion helping? I kept thinking @ you throughout the day. Xo

Oh, I took the picture of Adrian/Elvis today. He found his sunglasses while unpacking & decided to have some fun w/ them! He crAcks me up.

That is so special that you and Adrian honored his teacher with a visit. Not many students do that nowadays!

I remember all of my teachers, and there are a few that hold an extra special place in my heart. Adrian feels the same way. On a long weekend trip to the Chicago area, we spent an afternoon visiting a teacher from H.S. who was a real inspiration & rock to him. Xo

I still have that on my rib. The good thing is that it has gone down in size. From what everyone has told me, it sounds like I popped something from coughing so much and that it takes six plus weeks for it to heal. It has been four weeks so I guess I have to keep playing the waiting game! I am in no pain, just occasional soreness when I move a certain way. I hate going to the doctor just to waste my money!

The only schools here that require uniforms are Catholic schools and other private schools. Some charter schools might require them. I like uniforms, but they aren't cheap here. How did your day go?

I enjoy them being at home, love doing activities with them or just having trips to the park! x



Hey seawaters, No uniform is quite cheap really, can pick up some tops and trousers for just a couple of pounds each! I buy the sweatshirts from school as they have the school logo on and they cost about Ģ9 (about $14 i think?). Hope your well xx




Aww bless you track xxxx

Whatever happened with that project you had to do as a group? Did your professor find out that you were the one who did all the work? Glad you found the error in your audit. That would have been a bummer to take an extra class. I had to take some summer classes my last year of school. I didn't mind it except it delayed (by three months) my going to Japan to be with my husband.

A plus means you finished that section and a minus means you need to complete more. Well, last semester before I dropped a class, it was showing up with a plus sign in a section when my adviser checked my degree audit. Then after I dropped it, the sign changed to a minus and neither of us knew. That meant that I had to take an extra class in order to graduate. Thankfully, I checked my audit last night on my own and noticed that something wasn't right. I now have to change my schedule but I think everything will work out. I am lucky I caught the error otherwise I would have to go an extra semester for simply one class!

My first day was good yesterday. I think I am actually going to like the class that I had in the morning. The professor is nice and the material seemed interesting enough.

I am going to have a busy day today. There are so many things I need to get done!

Have a good one everyone!

My artificial tree came in sections, too. I use a large travel bag, the kind that holds hangup clothes, that my mother gave to me. Perfect fit!

Mr. came up with the idea of using a big, round trash barrel to store it, so we got one last night. I'll try repacking the tree this weekend. It's in two sections, so hopefully I can just set the bottom section down into the barrel, ease the top section in beside it, and cover the whole thing against dust. If this works, it'll make it much easier to set up and take down each year!



Good for you, keeping an eye on things! You saved yourself a lot of trouble.
