An UPDATE

Dustin is playing basketball for the AYS Nuggets. He's liking it, and so far the team is undefeated, having played each of the other teams once. This last team was the closest game, and I'll be darned if sitting in the audience I wasn't thinking the coaches should settle things down a bit. Middle schoolers you know, they get a bit full of themselves and play far rougher than necessary.

Brian was pleased with his progress reports, he was so disappointed by last quarter's report card it was nice to see him happy about it.

Michael brought home the papers from the Unit on Space they have just finished. It amazes me how much they learn about each planet! I commented that I was surprised to read Jupiter has 63 moons. I said, "How do they all fit around it?" He replied casually, "Well, it is a REALLY BIG planet." So it is.


Zachary has been sick for the last two days. A temperature, and runny nose. He is trying to turn it into croup, but luckily with little success at this point. I have high hopes that Bill and I might both be able to get a good night's sleep tonight.


Bill is, well, tired. See above.


And me? I got a job. I know, it's a little crazy, but I applied to be a census taker back in December, not knowing I would be pregnant. I just need to get through the week of training (five days in a row, 9 am to 5 pm) then they ask a minimum of 20 hours a week, and it's an 8 week stint. I should be able to do that. They pay too well to not give it the old college try anyway! Wish me luck, if I can make it work that's a whole credit card balance I will pay off, all by myself!

Hoping you do get a good nights sleep tonight, it sounds like you will need the energy. Good for you Marie, taking on the training and a short job. You must be feeling better! Sorry to hear that you are still experiencing snow. Keep warm.
