Ah, comfy blog. It's been a few days!
Well, it's been a pretty busy week, but that's a good thing. Work is busy and I'm thankful that I have a job that I enjoy. A couple of years ago when Meego started all-day school, I was wondering what sort of fun, productive, meaningful things I could do to occupy myself and also make some cash. So now I do this test prep teacher thing - who knew? Not to mention the fun crew of co-workers. There are popular TV shows set in hospitals, crime investigation precincts, lawyer's offices... there should be a test prep center TV show. I'd watch.
That portion of fence that got trashed in the wind storm a couple of weeks ago? All fixed. I'm thankful I found a good fence repairman guy who did a good job and didn't try to sell us something we didn't need. The other side of the fence - the side we share with the weird neighbors - was looking ready to give in this week's nasty wind storms too, but Magnum was able to reinforce that yesterday, utilizing his new Duracell Powerpack toy.
Yes, we have been having some nasty wind lately, but on the days that weren't windy, it's been very pleasant. I was able to happily pedal around on my bicycle to run a few errands without freezing a body part or two - a bit of a rarity in February. Yesterday, Chaco and I went for a good joyride together. I'm thankful he enjoys a bike ride with me now and then. True, I did need to sort of "bribe" him with a 7-11 Slurpee promise. But the 7-11 makes for a nice destination ride, not to mention low-budget, and the Peach Mango Fusion Slurpee is to die for!
You know those bumper stickers that say "My Child is an Honor Student at Hoopa Choopa Whatever School"? My car will never have one on it. I just don't like them. I don't like bumper stickers in general - not on my car. But I added a 5th one to the bedroom door. That's where ours go. The maximum number we could own at this time is 6, but Wolfgang had an "off" semester last year. He seems to be back in bumper sticker mode.
