My newest title: Chauffeur

Somehow, despite my best efforts slowing down my life & our children's lives hasn't worked. No matter how much I consolidated & rearranged I'll be on the road at least three nights a week. I was careful to back out of actually participating in two of these & use those two hours to read instead! I thought I was so clever, rearranging & sorting. HA. SNORT.

Currently listening to Jack Johnson's Brushfire Fairytales. You remember him. The 'Bubbletoes' song from a couple of years ago. Very relaxing. Even when you can barely hear it over your children's bickering over whose homework is harder & what is the correct plural of hypothesis (hypotheses).

Currently not reading anything, but carrying Redwall by Brian Jacques & Silver's Edge by Anne Kelleher around everywhere in the forlorn hope that soon I will be able to finish them. The result? They are impressively traveled for books, but remain unread.

Hi Amanda!! How are you doing? I haven't seen you (or your name, actually) for a little while. Hope all is well with you.

So you're reading "Redwall"? Is it good? My daughter and I are reading "The Tales of Desperaeux" and we're enjoying it, but I thought the "Redwall" mice seemed more my style. lol.

Hi Jenster! Glad to hear from you. The last three weeks or so have been really busy. I haven't done much online. Things are calming down a bit & I hope to roam around the 'net a bit more.

Redwall is good, different from Despereaux, but good nonetheless.

How've you been?

I've been pretty good. Feeling fine and ready to get on with things!!
