Busy, Busy, Busy

I'm sorry I haven't been posting... things have been CRAZY around here. I'll try to catch you up without too much whining!

* My presentation went well. I filled up my 4 hrs and everyone seemed to find the information helpful.
* The following week (last week) was filled with going back to school faculty meetings. Those were loads of fun. I really don't understand how people can enjoy spending 4 hrs analyzing a document.
*I'm allergic to the sweet little dog we have... Yogi... I have been full of snot (nice image there) since we got Yogi and today ended in the dr office. The dr gave me antibiotics and some nice cough medicine with Codeine. :) Apparently what started with allergies ended with a sinus infection. Is it bad to want to keep a dog even if it is making me sick? Hmm...
* The kids enjoyed their first day of school. I was a tad scared for Megs because her teacher frightened me with her drill sargent nature... but Megs really seems to like her. Megan's team teacher is my elementary PE teacher... that was a blast from the past. Kali enjoyed school but was quite concerned that her teacher made her use her right hand to write. Kali is a leftie... uh oh. I asked her a bunch of questions and what I think happened is that the teacher said something about writing and she thought she meant 'right.'
*Robert had his first college class today. I think he is feeling quite overwhelmed, but I'm sure he will do fine. It will just take a lot of patience on my part. He gets a little snappy when he is overwhelmed.
*We noticed about a month ago that Rt has a spot on the back of his head where all the hair has fallen out. We think it is stress related alopecia... any ideas what you do about that?

Ok, I think that gets it all... I'll try not to take so long to post again!

17 days...

I realized last night the school is less than three weeks away. It is a little frightening to see how much life is about to change. Not only are the girls going into grades that will require much more effort, but I completed all of Robert's financial aid paperwork last night and he will be starting at MCM. We think he is going to be a math teacher. He was always really good at math and because of the new laws requiring math for all four years of high school there is definitely a need. I do find it comical that one of the deciding facts for Rt about what he was going to major in was the idea that he would have summers off. He forgot to ask how I felt about him having summers off! haha! He better develop a love for the pool.

Well, I'm off to work on my presentation. All of my paperwork is due by 3 tomorrow and I would like to have it done tonight. Keep your fingers crossed!

Last night the girls and Rt were watching Rt's fave movie "Oh brother where art thou?" and the next thing I know he is rewinding it and they are all trying to recreate the dance moves! It was quite comical, and I wish I had a video camera... that would've been a great 'first date' movie to have on! haha!

I got home about 9:30 tonight and there's this HUGE raccoon eating the cat food. I have been complaining for a while that something has been eating the food every night... guess I figured out what it is! I'm surprised the cats let the coon get away with it... Rt thinks they are scared... but my male cat is kind-of mean. Maybe he knows what battle to pic. Anyone know how to get rid of a coon?

I have a 4 hr presentation due on Wednesday at 10am... I haven't started yet! Guess I should get on that, huh?
