I did already say don't buy a Dell printer, right? Okay, just checking.
Saw the movie Dan in Real Life this week. What a sweet movie! The Papa and the kids had already seen it and just insisted that I watch it too, and they were right :-)
Thank you for the prayers for young David this week. We found out after seeing several doctors that he has a serious but not dangerous eye condition. It may never improve, but it is not being caused by anything that's going to threaten his health and for that we are very thankful. Here's David in his new glasses, for which he is very thankful!
As if that weren't enough for one family for one week, David's little brother Sam spent a good part of the week in the hospital. He evidently contracted a virus that was too powerful for his little asthma-challenged body, and he had some seizures, dehydration, and breathing struggles. Poor Mom and Dad are worn out! But Sam is home again, and even though he's not back to 100%, he's stable.
My latent geek side (as well as my love of demographics and associated trends in technology and marketing) is loving the latest book in the iPod, Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything. If you share these interests with me, I recommend the book to you. If not, you'd probably hate me for saying you should read it...
One of the highlights of the week was getting my new desk chair. My bum leg does not like my old chair and sitting in it at my desk seemed at times like life without the possibility of parole. But now I'm so comfy I don't know if I can work without falling asleep! Of course The Papa had the pleasure of putting it together, and I'm so proud of him for READING THE DIRECTIONS FIRST!
What in the world can I say about politics this week? It is SO crazy that I've started keeping a page in one of my MS OneNote notebooks of all the predictions being made by well-known pundits just so I can go back and laugh in a few months.
For Father's Day, I am currently in the market for...Oh never mind, I'd better not say that here :-)
I can't remember what it was I did to get a free subscription to Bon Appétit magazine, but I like it! The truth is that I probably would never pay for any food magazine again with the wealth of great food blogs available to me. I love the personal aspect of these blogs and the photos on some of them are better than mags, not to mention much more detailed. But, if you're gonna give me Bon Appétit free, I'll take it!
At Granny's House we're busy making up summer reading lists for our teens and 'tweens. Any suggestions for great summer reads, both fiction and non-fiction?
And I'll snip it right there and finish up the last of the week's lesson planning. Have a great week!
