Phew! Made my work deadline. I wanted to jump right back into my math project, but I needed a nap first. I ended up sleeping 2.5 hours. It's 10 pm now and I'm ready to go back to bed. The twins have bad colds (I've been feeling grateful for nebulizers today) and are asleep thanks to the miracle of Children's Nyquil. Last night we did NOT have Children's Nyquil and we had LOTS of coughing and hacking and midnight nebulizer treatments and one round of puking. (Hence the need for a nap after turning in my work today.)
After the nap I made dinner for everyone and then settled in for an evening of bill paying, desk organizing, updating the calendar, etc.
I'm really worried about the Orenburg shawl. I just don't see me making any progress at all until work has slowed down at Thanksgiving.
We had a great Halloween. We hosted Sarah and Justin and their girls--on their way through as they move to Vermont. This was followed last night by a productive parent meeting at the school. Things are sounding a tiny bit more positive as far as the school getting to revise its charter to include middle school grades. We really, really, really want that to happen.
In the meantime I registered the twins for the same charter school for next year. Yes, already. I just wanted it crossed off my mental list.
And that about brings us up to date. I'm bound to be boring for another three weeks. My life is 1/3 reading, 1/3 math, and 1/3 wife and mom. No bells and whistles for a bit. Oh I am SO grateful that the championship football game is NEXT weekend, not this coming weekend.
