A busy week, mainly marked by back-to-school activities. Chaco is nicely situated and seems to be loving the Joe College life. Talked my EAR off as we went shopping on Friday to get other stuff he realized he "needed". Real classes begin this week, hopefully the honeymoon won't end.
So far, as expected, it's nice that he's out of the house, but close by. A noticeably large chunk has been taken out of the weekly food bill - or rather been transferred to the university.
In the meantime, I am thankful for the nice batch of students I currently have. They're a nice well-rounded crop of varied backgrounds and interests.
So while the full schedule is keeping me on my toes, I do enjoy it. I did learn, however, that I need more balance. Too much work and no play makes me a dull girl.
Friday afternoon, I returned home to find this in the e-mail from my tutoring service:
Congratulations, Abby! You won!
...You were randomly selected as the Round 3 winner for our Summer Learning Adventure giveaway. Thank you so much for participating in our contest. We always enjoy hearing from our network of parents, students, tutors and fans, and social media provides a great way for us to connect with you...
What? I won? What?
I followed the link to the facebook page. Oh yeah, I vaguely remembered answering a question as part of a contest, never expecting to be "randomly selected". Cool! It's not Powerball, but it's $25 at amazon. I'll take it.
Now, what to buy? I'm thinking art toys.
