I took this picture on my street out my car window. Isn't it cool?! (You may want to click to enlarge to truly appreciate it.)
Jazz Update: No rehearsal. The teacher isn't starting for another couple of weeks... I dunno why. Whatever. The children were disappointed, but they'll survive.
LLB had to write a paper about the one person in her life that she looks up to as a role model. Guess who she picked? ME!! I'm tickled. I was thinking about sharing her paper, but I don't know if I should... Do you think I should??
#1 applied for a job at the local Tractor Supply. It seems he's big enough, but he's not old enough. They thought he was 16. Alas, he is only 14. They don't hire anyone under the age of 16. It's too bad because they are missing out on one really great hard-working kid! Now he wants to apply at the local burger joint. They'll definitely hire him. I'm not too keen on that. What do you think? Should I let him?
Update on the Grandbugs: As of this minute, the purchase and sale on their house should be signed. (Key words: Should Be) I've not mentioned any of this because I didn't want to jinx it. They had an offer on the house before they left for New England in early January. They are due to close on the 31stand been getting estimates for movers, fixing stupid idiotic things that the buyers' " (insert explative here) inspector" said needed to be fixed, and generally getting ready to move. We at the Crossing are so excited!! LLB is counting the days until she gets her Gram and Grandpa back. Just so you know how much she wants them here: LLB heard us say something about the house being sold. LLB knew that Gram and Grandpa were due to leave in the morning. She said, "So it's sold. That means you can just stay here, right? That means you don't have to leave, right?"
The Christmas Tree: Yes, I finally found some acceptable ornament storage boxes. I packed them all up yesterday. The tree is coming down and going up into the attic today. That means all kinds of furniture shifting. And while I'm moving furniture, I should move the Grandbug's piano into their living room, shift the rug from their guest room to their loft, retrieve my living room end table that they were using as a night stand, and get my Christmas dishes out of their china cabinet (so they have a place to put all their stuff). Then I'm off to lunch with a friend. Think I'll get it all done??
