Gonna Build an Ark... and Travel
Have you seen any news reports about Ohio in the past two days? We've had inches and inches of rain. The rain melted the inches and inches of snow from last Thursday and Friday. That all equals disaster. Flooded rivers. Flooded streets. Flooded homes. Schools are closed because of flooding. Just south of T-Town, in Findlay, it's really bad. And now all that water is expected to freeze before it can totally recede.
My yard is just a big mud pit, with a small pond in the front yard. No big deal. I do have a canoe in the back yard if I need it!
Work is keeping me amazingly busy. It's time to get the 8th graders registered for high school classes. Conferences for those in danger of failing are being scheduled an alarming rate; by me no less. Then I have to attend them! I have meetings before school every day next week. I get home from work nearly too tired to knit, especially by the time I get my kids through their homework. That's criminal. Seriously.
The trip to Washington, D.C., for the 7th graders in June, is pretty much finalized and totally full... 90 kids! (OK, I know you all think I'm crazy, but the trip really is fun!) Speaking of trips, are any of you interested in London and Paris in the summer of 2009? Buddy Bill has led many trips to Europe (London, Paris, Rome, Scotland) and we're talking seriously about putting one together for next summer. 10-12 days. Of course I'll look up the best knitting shops for us to visit along with the tourist sites! I will have more details in mid-summer, but start thinking about it. We've already been in touch with the tour company for cost estimates and travel dates.
Pictures of some new yarn and the mud and anything else I can think of just as soon as I track down the camera battery I know is here somewhere...
