Later on: When I was picking up Allen in the loop outside of school today, I pulled up towards the curb to let him in. He opened the door and said, "Mom, you're kind of blocking traffic." I said, "Well...I should hope that whoever is behind me will see you on crutches and think, 'That mother cares so much for her son!'"...and then I glanced in my rear view mirror and saw Gudl in the car behind me. LOL!

Alicia was only five years old in these pictures. Where did the time go? She is enjoying a peanut-butter finger that her Aunt Rachel brought to the tye-dye party we had that summer. We invited lots of kids and everyone took home a tye-dyed shirt. More on that soon!

An update on my plans: I have made a final decision to go to the University of Buffalo. Renewing my teacher certification was going to be more of an expense, time consuming and pain in the neck than I cared to take. So I will be getting a whole new teacher certification with School Library as my concentration. I have started the rough outline of an essay and have found one person who has agreed to write a letter of recommendation. I have another person in mind to ask. (I need 2) My submitted application needs to be in by March 1st. If all goes according to plan, I will start my grad courses in the summer. I'm planning on attending school full time. I don't see any need to drag my heels with this. That will be 2 courses this summer and 4 in the fall. Then we'll see from there.
And of course I have the usual promises....get rid of clutter, have a meaningful quiet time every day, get more exercise, eat better...(yawn). I always seem to start out well with these sorts of things and then...you know. How about you? Do you have any new goals or resolutions this year?
Oh....Happy New Years everybody!
