So Far This Week...

I replaced the modem.

The Older Daughter threw up twice at school and came home early.

The Older Daughter ate tortellini two hours after arriving home, and two and a half hours after that competed in an Academic Team competition (her team won both their games).

My grandmother had her 91st birthday (Yay, Grandma!).

I was approved for substitute teaching in our school district.

The Older Daughter won not just the local but the district Patriot's Pen essay contest for her age division.

And...my dryer broke (I am awaiting the repairman now).

Oh, yes! And Dad put an extra hard drive into my computer.

With a coathanger.

Which is still in the computer.

And it's still only Wednesday!

Yeah older Daughter! (for the essay not throwing up)

Glad to hear you have a new modem as I know your previeous one was giving you fits.

New hard drive and a coat hanger in your computer? Of Course! Now you have more room to hang coats in your PC! Wish I had thought of that!

I see we are expected to get up to 3 inches of snow today. Your part of the state always seemed to get hit harder than we did last winter so I hope you are all ready for it.

Have a good reat of the week!

Michael--Thanks you for the Older Daughter cheers. I shall pass them on; she will be delighted.

Ah, snow! I think this time it's supposed to go north of us, or at least the bad stuff is. Hope you're stocked up on cocoa.

Send your eldest daughter hugs from her uncle and myself :). As for the rest, we send you hugs too. We hope to see you this weekend.

Cindy said...

If this weather doesn't get better, all those hugs may be difficult to deliver. The boys' mom emailed, and we're making the weekend contingent on the weather. :p

I pine for purple. :)

That sounds like an interesting day! I still think it was pretty funny for your Older Daughter to spill all that tea on her! We are still laughing about it!!

Cindy said...

Oh, Gretchen, we were just lucky the tea came out. It was one of her favorite shirts! Unfortunately, The Older Daughter seems to have inherited her mother's natural grace. :p Poor Older Daughter!

Hey! being clumesy is not that bad. I am really glad we got the stain out

Cindy said...

Clumsy?! I said "natural grace!"

Gretchen Birch said...

Yes Natural Grace.............I definitely fall into that category sometimes!
