That probably doesn't need a hyphen, does it Kory?
It is another crazy week here. I was at school until almost 9 last night for Open House. This event is when the parents come to school in the evening to meet their kids' teachers. I attended the two for my boys last week.
I have been thinking lately how much my kids are growing up. My oldest is in eighth grade. Some days I wonder where the past 13 years have gone. Other days, I think I can feel every second of it. Sam is almost two. Sam and Alex are 12 years apart in school years, so when Alex is a senior in high school, Sam will be in kindergarten. We have quite the spread. (And we get asked if we are Catholic a lot. We are not. We just cannot get pregnant when we want to, and cannot not get pregnant when we don't want to.) Amy is growing up quickly. She wears a lot of her cousins' hand-me-down clothes. She had on a dress today that was my niece's. My niece is not a freshman in high school. Ed is one of those kids who is brilliant, a great athlete, and most things just come easy to him. And if it doesn't come easy to him, he can be very persistent.
Other random thoughts... I just finished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I am glad she is wrote a sequel, which will come out next year. I really was never single as a grown-up. I married Dave when I was 22 and had Alex at 25. When I read about some of the things single people get to do, I get a little envious. But, I love Dave and love my kids, so I am where I want to be. However, I really want to go to Italy. (Except when I remember Rian's experience.) Someday, I will. Maybe. But for now, a relaxing couple of weeks at the beach condo is what I really love to do on vacation.
Have I mentioned how much I love teaching AP Calculus? I really love teaching AP Calculus.
Well, that is all. I have many other random thoughts. Some I am not allowed to share. One that I can share is that I want a chicken biscuit for breakfast tomorrow, so I may have to go to Chick-fil-a on my way to school. Another is that the Fresh Produce store in the Avenue in East Cobb gives teachers a 20% discount every day. I saved $27 this weekend. So my sister-in-law got a better present and I got a new Vera Bradley Puccini backpack and key/cellphone case. I want to be a cross of Sharon, Rian, Rebecca, and Debra when I grow up. And Margaret, but she doesn't have a blog!
Time to put some little people to bed.
