The heat finally broke last night. In fact, it got downright COLD. It's only in the mid-40s outside right now. :::shivers:::
Still, the humidity is gone and it sunny, so the day (once it warms up a bit) will be lovely.
I contacted DD's curriculum carrier and they gave me an extra day to get things done, so we're all good with that. Yay! Now, DD is sad because school's over. She came to me no less than three times yesterday, once she was crying, and said she was going to miss her teachers (the curriculum is on DVD so she's actually taught in a real classroom, with trained teachers -- I'm basically there to help with questions and grade papers). In fact, last night before bed she asked if there was a way she could write them a letter. So sweet.
I'm not entirely certain why my across the street neighbors' boys decided it was okay to have a dozen friends over (including a couple of girls with really shrill screams) and then play basketball -- complete with hooting shouts of victory and rap music turned up to the highest volume -- until well after 10 p.m. last night.
I realize that THEY don't have school tomorrow, but it was a Tuesday and I'm fairly certain most of the adults on the street get up early for work.
My writing isn't going very well. I'm getting words down, but I'm not happy with them. I want more description and wish it felt smoother as I wrote it, but I suppose I should try to consider this an outline instead of a first draft. That might help... *sigh*
You Are Eggs Over Easy
You have good taste and high standards. You are very detail oriented, and you know what you want in life.
When everything is in its place and things are as they should be, you can finally relax.
You may seem like the kind of person who has things come easy for you, but it's all an illusion.
You work hard to make your life perfect, and part of this perfection is making things look effortless.
