Stuff Going on Around Me

Why haven't I been blogging more?

First, there are several things I've been thinking about that I can’t mention, in order to protect people’s privacy (including my own), some not so good, some very good.

I think it's okay to share all the following; I hope no one involved in it minds me sharing it here. Most of it is good, and not all of these require me to do a lot, but they all require me to think, pray, and...well, try not to be stressed.

My daughter is relocating from one state to another.

My blind college son in another state finally got SSI, and he and his friends are looking for an apartment, as he needs to be out of the dorm at the end of the semester.

I finally helped my high school senior sign up for his S.A.T. testing…so now he has less than a month to prepare for it. (And please don't anyone tell me how late we are running. As he is my fifth child, I'm well aware. If you don't know, please have your child take the S.A.T. in the junior year. Much less stressful to do things "on schedule".)

I’ve started thinking we might want to live in a different neighborhood when our lease runs out in the summer, and am trying to think about where that would be.

The weekly preschool is going great and I want to keep it that way, so I need to keep putting in the time to prepare for it.

My writing started to take off, and then I “sat back”, so I need to get moving along again on that.

My next Braille lesson (with a correspondence course I’m taking) is due (actually overdue).

This is the last week of the first quarter for our homeschooling, so I want to do my quarter reports. And that reminds me that I need to do a little reassessment.

And did someone mention it's time to start preparing for Christmas?

Finally, I am in the process of giving up caffeine! Give me coffee. Give me Coke. P-l-e-a-s-e. Naw, really, please don't!! (No matter how much I beg you.) But prayers I will gratefully take instead.

Ugh, I gave up caffeine altogether last year. I had a headache for a week! Will pray for all your goings on!

BTW -- been meaning to tell you -- I love the signature line. Very pretty!
