Back From Bein' Busy

I've finally returned from weeks of running around the country, and am currently in one place long enough to get caught up on email and stuff, so -

  • Good news - I got an A on my final for my online course.  With an A for the mid-term, I'm feeling fairly confident that I did well.
  • Two of the kids are employed (as is a grandson), and the third is still interviewing.  She's hanging in there, about 2-4 job interviews a week (WAY above the average for her class).  We expect to hear that she's working within a few weeks.
  • We made it through the summer without any major catastrophes, other than READ MORE

Random 4th of July Thoughts and links

I just love this day!  It’s NOT because I get a day off – as a teacher, I’m already on vacation.  Most of my life, I’ve not been obligated to report to work in the summer (child, student, housewife, teacher).  No, it’s strictly my love for America.
