I don't understand how some people's lives can be so hectic, one disaster after another, while other people's lives can be so ho hum day after day. I hardly ever have anything exciting happen unless I make it happen (like going on vacation) while for poor Ashley the excitement never seems to stop!
Why do you think that is? Why do some people attract chaos and others deflect it?
My daycare is fully under way, and going very well. I have 6 full time and two very part time. All the kids are so happy, the parents are happy and I am happy, what more could you ask for? One of my forth graders told me he wants to name it "Club Wendy", LOL, I thought this was so funny. We are a very relaxed group, they are all very well behaved and easy going. One of the teachers stopped me in the hall and complemented me - "You have a real nice line of kids walking to and from school." another teacher looked at my kids and said to me -"What did you do hand pick all the best kids?" I said "Yes I did!" All the teachers have been very supportive of me, congratulating me and wishing me luck, they all think it is great that I am doing this. That is saying alot after working at the school for 13 years! I told my parents if it continues like this all year I feel I could do this for quite a while.
I told you in my last post that during my vacation my digital camera "bit the dust" I have tried to get it working, it is really dead. Last night I ordered a new one off of Amazon. This is what I am getting - Canon PowerShot Pro Series S5 IS 8.0MP Digital Camera with 12x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom, it is a med. priced camera, still a "point and shoot" but a much better camera. My other one we bought when they first came out, I think is was a 4.5mp, nothing fancy.
I will take some good pictures and post them. Oh no, It means getting used to a whole new program too! I hope Cannon has a good computer program.
Ashley's 20th birthday is Mon. Wow - I have a 20 year old! She is coming home Sat. and bringing her... her... her... Micah. Maybe someday soon I will be able to call him her, something.
Still knitting up a storm! Still reading when I can. Finished "The Scandalous Summer of Sissy Lablanc" the ending was real good! Now I am reading "The Rest of Her Life" by Laura Moriarty. I am on page 67 and it is good already. It is about a woman who's daughter hits another girl in a crosswalk while driving and kills her. It is about the aftermath. Will she be arrested, what will happen, etc. it was so sad I was crying.
