Waiting at the school district HQ to sign Nunu up for kindergarten. They're on #57 and I'm 77.

Bored bored bored bored and I've only been here 10 minutes. Oh and look! I should have charged my phone.

Let's hope the battery holds out...

Thansk for hte wishes and hugs, everyone... I'm actually, in a way, lookign forward to teh weekend. all of my cousins are coming in, which is a pleasant surprise. it will most likely be the last time teh 5 of us and our moms will be togehter. so, i'm going to bring my fancy camera and pitch a fit if we can't get a photo of the bunch of us.

we (my mom and us) live about 10-15 minutes from the airport, so 5 trips won't be the worst in the world. if someone calls us as soon as they land and can turn on phones, we can beat them to teh end of hte tram in one of the remote parking lots.

As much of a PITA my gramma had gotten in teh last couple of years, i find that i'm not thinking of that as much. Unprompted, she said on sunday that i was a good lady. it was an appropriate response to sometihng someone else said. Good confirmation for me that i was doing well by her, even thoguh my mom, especially, had been saying that for the last several months.

OH! PE - how bad does this sound on the surface! i'm relieved that gramma died now and not closer to 3/18 so i wouldn't have to cancel on you! I know that it's a good reason to cancel, but i am looking forward to it and dont' want to miss it!

Miscellaneous:

The federal budget sequester will start on National Self-Injury Awareness Day.

News Headline: "Shirtless Lawrence man barges into strangers' home with stolen sword, blind cat."
There is probably an interesting story behind that.

On this day 97 years ago Peter De Vries was born, and if you want to know why he is QT's favorite modern writer, consider:
+"Anyone informed that the universe is expanding and contracting in pulsations of eighty billion years has a right to ask,'What's in it for me?' "
+ "The murals in restaurants are on a par with the food in museums."
+ "Human nature is pretty shabby stuff, as you may know from introspection."
+ "Nostalgia isn't what it used to be."
+ "It is final proof of God's omnipotence that he need not exist in order to save us."
The De Vries novel to start with is The Vale of Laughter.
Or maybe The Mackerel Plaza.
You can work your way up to The Blood of the Lamb.

Ha ha!

She is not here. Her dad told her this morning that kids weren't allowed so she went to preschool as normal.

But that's not to say that situation won't happen; I had a hot chocolate earlier and they go right through me.
:D

On 75!

I had consdered the possibility and formed some contingency plans, just in case. But I too am glad you will make it.

It makes something good to look forward to in the midst of sad stuff.

Yay! She's in.
But it was almost a complete disaster. I thought I grabbed our lease extension but it seems that's expired. Now I'm puzzled about that but they accepted my proof of car insurance. Whew!!!
And since I have the afternoon off we're going to go sledding!

I'm on vacation! Tomorrow my friend R and I fly to Dallas to meet up with our Illinois expat friends, C and L for a girls weekend.

I'm currently pre-gaming it at a local Mexican food joint over a margarita and some enchiladas. By myself.

Actually the sledding hill is an old landfill. We call it Mt. Trashmore. And it's nowhere near the lake.
