Had a great day at work today. We had a program of live action angry birds. I think the sling shots I made out of duck tape worked better than the plastic store bought ones.

That dream was totally not worth sleeping in for!

South Carolina closed off its borders and you had to drive up to a checkpoint area, get out and take an oral test, to prove you were a Christian, given by a pair of state policemen. And that's not being politically incorrect, they fired all the women.

And it had to be an oral test, you weren't allowed to see the questions. They were fine with me for a while because I answered all their questions properly, but then when I told them I was an atheist they got all pissy and started taking marks off and he showed me my paper and I grabbed it and ran for my car.

When you said oral test, I first thought you meant a mouth swab. While certainly creepy, the notion of swabbing someone for Christianity holds a bit of dreamy humor for me.

Awesome. We did, too. We considered slingshots but, in the end, I just made 80 pompoms out of yarn.

I commend you for making even one pompom, but 80? wow.

I would much rather play live action angry birds! Smile

I had Pom Pom fixings, only four of the kids made those. I also had paper cubeis that some of the boys made. But for the game I premade been bags birds and pigs.

I love having family visit, but I will admit that, having said goodbye to them yesterday, it feels SO. GOOD. to have a day to myself, when G is at daycare, and the house is quiet.

TheatreGeek, I used to yearn for days like that. Now I feel a little bereft when everyone has gone out. Goodness knows how I'm going to feel when they all leave. Middle kidlet gets her A Level results today.

Chris and I left Miss Millie with his Auntie last night, she was exhausted from running after the baby all day when we got back. Millie had a great time, especially when she was allowed to play in the sprinklers.

(I know exactly what you mean, TheatreGeek).

What a shitty run today. Perhaps eating an hour beforehand is what negatively impacted my breathing. Hmm.

Dev goes back to school today. 7th grade. Also, he's been taller than me for a while, but after his checkup I now know he's 5'5".

Wow Meave. Luckily they just don't seem to stop growing.

Middle kidlet got 3 A's at A level - which is great and means she can re-apply next year for med school (she thinks she wants to). She got down to 1 in 3 from 4,000 applicants in Bristol this year but didn't get the place. Disheartening.

Little kidlet got her GCSE results and got what she needed to get into 6th form, which she was really chuffed about. I'm really proud of her.

Frog is about to take her 2nd year finals and will either be going into her 3rd year or re-taking her 2nd. Fingers crossed for her.

I just want them to be content with their lives. I love them all so much.

Frog is now into her third year at uni. I hope she copes with it all - such hard work.

I also hope everyone is well?

I got Millie ready ahead of schedule this morning, so I got a little bit of cuddle time before we had to leave. She seems to be feeling better, less of a cough. My drive in today wasn't too bad, and my new car, Joan, didn't scare me with any warning lights. I feel virtuous, because I did my invoices yesterday. I've already ordered lunch, and expect it'll be delivered around noon. So far, so good for this work day (not to jinx it)!

Now I need to update my to-do list.
