bundled up, walkabout, snow

My day

Yesterday was the first meeting of Chess Club. There was a small group of kids for the first meeting, which was uneventful.

We talked to Critter and Tigger about 9th grade being cancelled, and we're all working on getting used to the idea of him going to high school next year instead of the year after.

As I suspected, he's not nearly so angry as I am, although he is disappointed. I suppose we've trained our kids well, to accept final decisions from authority figures. Too bad we haven't trained me.

Anyway, Flar's looking into getting permission for Critter to visit the high school next Friday while TLS is out for conferences. And the current running joke is ways to spend the (mostly imaginary) 13K that his tuition was going to be next year. I say mostly imaginary, since it's been pretty difficult to scrape up the tuition the last few years, and it's not likely that we'll suddenly have this windfall of unspent money.

Anyway, I suppose I'm calming down a bit about it, even though I'm still bothered by the way the board handled it.

Today I drove Tigger to bowling, got my car a free service check in the bowling alley parking lot, picked up pizza on the way, and then invited ourselves over to Ro and Knight's to watch Independence Day. Flar had a thing downtown, so the boys and I were on our own for dinner.

I sank myself into a craft project today, restarting it twice, until I was satfisfied with how I wanted to do it. I worked on it while Tigger was bowling, and then in the evening, while watching Crimson Tide, Real Women Have Curves and Trapped. I've got a touch to finish up tomorrow, and then I should probably work on bookkeeping, since I'm caught up on dishes and laundry.

And now I really should go to sleep... Movie's over. :)

Lazy Sunday

I did not get out of bed until after 1:30 pm today!

Comes from watching movies until 2:30am, I suppose.

I spent the day reading the paper, starting a new book, clipping and sorting coupons, watching Angel and Survivor with Knight and Ro, watching Ice Age with Flar and the boys, and watching Playboy TV with Flar.

I'm caught up on dishes, laundry, the paper, coupons, email and LJ. Wow. Tomorrow I'll be working on book-keeping and grocery shopping.

While I was watching Ice Age tonight, I finished up my craft project. Which I'll write about tomorrow, after I have the camera charged up, and can show it off.
