Status of me

I haven't been typing too much of anything anywhere. Why? I've been dealing with a carpal tunnel flare for most of the last 2 months. Ouch! The only thing it was affecting was computer work. I could knit for hours, cook, stitch, whatever...but typing and using a mouse? No go.

So what have I been up to?

School. I finished one class at UCSC Extension. Got an A. Go me. Four units down 21/23 to go. I'm in the middle of the second class I scheduled for the summer. I just got my CPR and First Aid certifications yesterday. Yea.And I've gotten over half of the busy work done. I need my laptop back before I can do one other assingment, and I'm waiting for the teacher to post the details of the other assignments so I can do them and turn them in. I've got 3 classes for a total of 11 units scheduled for the Fall quarter. So that end of life is busy.

Getting ready for the kids to start school. Lots of shopping and planning. Joe went to the 3rd grade class meeting yesterday morning while I was at school. Ike is in for a great year. His teacher has planned on a LOT of good stuff. I won't know how much I'll be able to volunteer until after I see not only what the Kindergarten is up to, but what classes I'll be involved with (nursery/parent and child classes). I'm going to try and schedule a meeting with Njeri this week to discuss more of what's coming this fall for me.

Birthdays! Elli and Gwen just turned 6 and Joe has his birthday on Tuesday. Two parties for the girls (one for family, one for kids) which took a lot of planning.

Camp. Ike, Elli and Gwen went to camp for 2 weeks this summer. One week in July and one in August. They had a good time and I enjoyed have a bit of quiet.

Art. I've been hanging out with labelleizzy doing art. I don't know how to draw and we are spending time drawing. I still don't know, but I seem to be getting a bit better at it.

That's pretty much it. Its been busy around here.

    I won't graduate from school until 2014. The likelihood of my being employed by a school nearby until then? Not good. Maybe afterwards. But even…
