It's all grey and overcast outside. A little misty. Like one big cloud from horizon to horizon. Perfect setting for silver liningness!(?)
Hard to believe that August is already coming to an end. The kids are well established into the school year now it seems. Had a back-to-school nite thing at Meego's school. I'm getting the vibe that it will be a good year for all of the kiddos.
Just yesterday, I kicked off another LSAT class. It's always nice to start another round with new fresh-faced law student wannabes. They all seem nice. Hopefully the feeling is mutual.
On that note, there was a parade going on downtown not far from where I was teaching yesterday. It was a Welcome Home/Military Appreciation parade for our local troops. I was giving the class a test after we had discussed not letting ambient noise and other things distract their focus, when along came three F-16's in formation to thoroughly buzz our classroom! What timing! It reminded me that I am thankful for our military. And thanks to those pilots for helping with yesterday's lesson. Twice!
Speaking of lessons, Chaco is coming along nicely with the driving. He's pretty much got his clutch/gas coordination thing down and is able to drive me around to run errands now. I think he takes pride in knowing how to drive a stick when he knows adults who don't have it. Yesterday's excursion featured hydroplaning potential, poor visibility, malfunctioning traffic lights, and a particularly bad driver in a parking lot. Chaco, I, and the car all survived!
We have a new dentist (oh boy!). Our insurance provider changed, so we needed to find another and did so. Someone right in the neighborhood. Magnum went last week and gives them good reviews. He's getting a crown that he's needed for a while. A gold one ("so I can harvest it from your body if you die before I do"). This is his first crown. I, on the other hand, have had 6 crown procedures in regards to the 3 crowns currently in my head. This makes me still and forever The Queen.
