I really haven't been updating much, other than silly memes or links. I have been busy now that the school year has started (I think I said this before), and will probably BE busy for the foreseeable future.

Today, I went to the school and sent out two separate flyers to parents about an upcoming PTO meeting and a Pizza Hut fund raising night, when we encourage everyone to clog their arteries in the name of better educational tools. I also went and visited one of the ladies from church I was supposed to, and mailed a shipment of cell phones to the recycling place for a fund raiser from last year. I set up four more fund raising events with restaurants for the next couple of months, as we try to have two per month...one pizza, and one actual go-to-a-place-and-sit-down with a waitress and stuff kind of place. It's served us well in the past.

Tonight was Curriculum Night at the school, where parents came without their children to see the classrooms, and to get a good idea of what their children would be learning. It was nice to get the info and meet the teachers and stuff, even though I already know most of them. I signed up two new families for the PTO, and sold a couple of t-shirts, so that was nice, too!

Tomorrow is another insanely busy day, where I am going to go visit a woman from church, pick up Lai and do some running around, pick up the kids, take the turtle to the vet, hang out at home for a bit with Lai and maybe watch a movie, and at some point, go grocery shopping. Also? My tweezers have gone mysteriously missing, and I need to get another pair.

Robert also has his first cello lesson tomorrow, and he's really excited about it. The cello was delivered yesterday, and he just sat and admired it for a while. I hope he takes to it, because sometimes I worry that the poor boy takes after my father, who was tone deaf.

I also have about a bazillion loads of laundry to catch up on, but that is nothing new.

Not getting enough sleep, but have been having a great time with my RP, both at Milliways and at my new game over on GJ. PSSSST--why haven't you all joined yet? It's awesome!

And tonight me and Lai did the happydance, because I figured out how to put tags in the sidebar at the new game's main page, and Lai figured out how to make them show up in indiviual posts. Now all we have to do is find out why we can't edit entries at all, and we will be GOLDEN.

Other than that, life continues apace...things are good, if a little hectic. Hope everyone out there is doing well!

I don't know if this really works, but if it does? Sweeeet.

My sister graduated from ASU, Summa Cum Laude with a BSW tonight, and I am very, very proud of her. She has worked hard, and has been accepted into the accelerated Master's program, so will have her Master's degree in Social Work at this time next year.

We went to dinner afterward, where my diet got chucked out the window in favor of southwest cuisine and a half a piece of fudge pie. I don't regret it.

Mother's day is this Sunday, and even though I am hosting family dinner, I might take the first part of the day to drive up with my sister and visit our parents' (and grandparents') graves. My father died on mother's day (May 12th) ten years ago, so it's kind of a double whammy for us. I miss them both every day, and wish I could make the trip up there more often.

It's about an hour and a half each way, so we could easily be home in time for family dinner. Especially if I just have chicken salad sandwiches, or something that I can make ahead of time.

For now, I am very tired, and am going to bed.

To any and all I am threading with? I will tag tomorrow, when my brain is not so fuzzy and half-dead.

Nighty-night!
