Well. It's Sunday already! This was a busy and productive week. It's midterm project time in the land of school, so I was slaving away, and my blog dependence has been neglected. But I am still here keeping my head above water.
My tutoring schedule has, thankfully, calmed down to a gentle oozing after the back-to-school gush, and not a moment too soon. And I discovered a nice feature that my tutor matching service recently added. We can selectively turn our profiles to 'off' if we don't want to show up in searches, but we still keep full communication with our current students. So now I don't have to invoke my say-no skills. I just made myself invisible!
And before I go further with the gratefulness stuff, I do need to share some somber news. Tina, the Black Skirted Tetra of aquarium apocalypse survivor fame has passed. We discovered her last night, facing east underneath her prayer temple, suggesting a very peaceful passing. She was given a proper porcelain burial. Now, only the monsters remain. May she rest in peace.
In other casualty - sort of - news, Alice was in bad need of a pedicure. Peda - cure?
I somehow managed to shear a chunk of pedal off of her, and for this past week, she's been going around all clipped like this. But today, I took her to the salon and she's looking peda-spiff now!
It's a very nice day out, and I easily managed to get Meego and Magnum to come along with me on a ride to the bike shop. This was a good thing as I'm starting to feel that Meego and his new computer, Potato, are spending a bit too much time together. I mean, I'm glad they're getting along and that Potato is such a suitable match for Meego, but sometimes we need to go feel the wind in our hair and the cracked pedals beneath our feet.
