Since we're all whining, my apartment building was hit by lightening yesterday. It hit the chimney which exploded and rained bricks onto the junction box, so no power, no water, no habitation.

So we will be living in a hotel until <mimishrug>

Wow! Glad you're all ok. Were you there when it happened? My house has never been hit, but I have had a few strikes within meters of me. Really gets your heart pumping.

I got new duties at work so no more free time there. Then when I get home, I don't feel like sitting at a computer some more.

I get a few minutes on the train (like right now) but I hate typing on my phone.

It happened during the middle of a work day, so almost no one was at home. Good thing too, the courtyards where the majority of the the bricks came down is always filled with kids. Tho I like to think I would have made them come inside during an electrical storm, I have been known to let them play in the rain.

I came home from work and picking up the kids to find news crews wanting interviews.

And the kids be like

But seriously good for you! I imagine you'll propose as soon as you have your doctorate? I'll wait...
Nah, most are excited about the opportunity to advance to 8th. It's an honor and no behavior problems are allowed. I will be very clear that if they aren't ready emotionally, I won't recommend the jump. Sometimes kids do need that extra year to mature some.

That really sux. Sorry you're going through that. Do you have what you need to deal with living in a hotel with kids? I hope you have a pool.

We're at a Holiday Inn right now and it does have a pool, but the room is not big enough for all of us to live in for the duration, so hopefully by Saturday we'll be in an extended-stay kind of place, where we can close a door between the sleeping children and the daddy who has to make phone calls.

But at the moment, all I keep saying to myself is this sucks. I am however, keeping a good attitude (for the most part) for the kids. I don't want their summer completely ruined.

I'd spend the whole time by the pool. A room with a door within a suite would probably make a world of difference.

The kids will think this is a great adventure. they will tell the tale round family dinners to their own grandchildren.

Get the Eloise books from the library about the little girl who lived in The Plaza Hotel in NY.

I have to admit, he is VERY good looking. His record, on the other hand, ruins it.

Lulu is having a hard time with it right now; I'm hoping that changes once we're used to it. She's upset that her bike is under the pile of rubble, which I completely understand, but she can't seem to grasp that we will get her a new bike if hers turns out to be scrap metal. She *really* like that one!

I totally forgot about Eloise! I have all the books in one large volume; I'll pack it next time we are home. They'll want a turtle to walk, I can just see it.

I KNOW you're not implying that you want to have sex with a six- or eight-year old. Right?

And I think I like Washington Indigenous better. It will look GREAT on a logo.
