squinting

Let me see....

It has been busy here. The collective are both learning Spanish. PN is right on her Brother's tail, and it was told to me, that she is doing fantastic, and we should be proud. She can even roll her rrr's.

SR, has been sort of roller coaster lately making it through most of the day and then having at least one frustration meltdown a day this week. Monday it was a mathematics problem. His mentor was out ill, so he had regular math with his peers, since he is ahead of them, his teacher gave him a worksheet to keep him busy, as the rest of them were working on adding. He did not like that at all. I am guessing it is because she did not explain it. He can work a+13=26, but he got a sheet that was a+b=26. I am not sure why he was stumped or frustrated, but he was. He was upset, and had to go the the Principals office to settle down.

Oye.....I asked her to send the sheet home, because we would go over it with him, she forgot it today.

Let me see, it is raining, and I will not complain, as I still need to turn on my sprinklers after blowing them out. I also have to WEED something fierce, and finish my pruning. We have mowed, and now will probably mow once per week. I have beautiful purple bud trees up front, and oh my too many things to report. I have lilac bushes right under my bedroom window, they will need to be moved. I also have 5 butterfly bushes in need of pruning of some sort. It is a lot of work.


We got new software at work, which I must say the font is terribly small. I find the headaches are almost daily. I probably need glasses, but seriously the font is nuts. Also the magic new software is not really as uber cool as anyone would have thought. It is currently a pain in the ass.

Tomorrow is only Wednesday.

The lilacs are in bloom over here and there are a bunch on the median from DC to our base. I noticed them this weekend on the way home. We use to have a bush under a bedroom window growing up. My mom wanted to take it with her.

I loathe software updates. Hope your headaches stop - Lord knows you don't need those every day!

Glasses lady. I went through the same thing. The headaches were as bad as migraines but as soon as I got glasses it stopped.

The rain is falling here so no real yard work will be done while Hubs is still in our fair state, it seems. I'll figure it out.

I can't believe it's only Wednesday too, in some ways, but in others this week seems such a waste as I spent the last 4 days sick!

We have so much adoption paperwork to get to this week, it's unreal.

If you are needing bi-focals, like I am, here is a tip I read on a blog: hold down the CTRL button and with your right hand, click on the plus sign to increase font size in your browser window. If you click too many times and the font is too big, then click on the minus sign while holding down the CTRL button.

Forgive me if you tried this already. Hope it helps.
