My DD is acting like a teenager ... and she's only eleven. Uh oh. Woke her this morning at 7:00 (which is later than MOST kids have to get up for school) and she fussed and grumbled and complained. Used to be she was a total morning person and popped out of bed like she slept in a toaster. When she was a baby, she woke up singing and I'd lay there and listen to her on the monitor for ten or fifteen minutes because it was such a happy sound.
I'm thinking, "Go away!" isn't such a happy sound.
We didn't start school yesterday as planned because the LASR anniversary party put me behind. So, yesterday I worked on her schooling and set up her schedule so (in theory) we'll finish the first week in June. If nothing happens. :::insert laughter here:::
My LASR biz partner, Judy, is committing to write on her lunch hour at her EDJ and I told her to ping me on IM when she's ready and we'd do it together. It'll help me realize where the day and time is going. Most days, I lose track, look up and it's dinnertime.
In any case, wish me luck with day one of school... we'll see how DD does (besides grumbling).
You Should Learn a Foreign Language
You would like to turn your world upside down a little, and there's no better way to do that than immersing yourself in a foreign culture.
Learning a new language would broaden your perspective and give you an inside look at another area of the world.
Getting to know a new language would challenge your brain as well as your expectations about another culture.
Your opportunities in life would also be expanded. Imagine where you could travel once you had another language under your belt!
