    Default Tuesday Roll Call, 10/25

    Good Morning!
    It is Tuesday.
    Weird how last Tues. nobody but us had trash out. Today, everyone does.
    Full house of kids today. Extra teacher today(speech) and I need to get stuff put away.
    Dishes, laundry.
    Neverending stuff.

    And lack of sleep has caught up to me.
    UGH

    I need a nap and we know that isn't going to happen.
    Oh well.

    Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!

    Vacuumed out the vents so that we can turn on the furnace and not blow dust everywhere. House was at 58 degrees this morning, and tomorrow is supposed to be grey and rainy so I'm not expecting a warm up. Now sitting here waiting for the heat to kick on and take the cold out of my fingers.

    Swam laps again; I think I'm relegated to the pool for the indefinite future until I figure out my foot and knee injuries (different legs, so that's a plus, she says sarcastically).

    Mostly yard work (done slowly) for me today. Clean out flower beds, pull out the last of the garden plants except for kohlrabi, dig up herbs to bring in for the winter.

    On another note, I saw this come across the Purdue news feed today. Mike Moses named Virgin Galactic president - SpaceNews.com

    I graduated from the physics program at Purdue with Mike. I remember us sitting in the back of astronomy class; I was the lone female. However, the prof seemed to "forget" that and usually used inappropriate examples during his lectures. He and another male student were my morale boosters to get through the sexist profs class.

    Perhaps I can contact him and finally reach my dream of going into space????

    Just saying hi. Pretty typical day here. Finishing up school and today is also library day.

    Inmom that is pretty cool - you should totally contact him, even if just to say congratulations.

    A pretty average day. It is grey day, overcast and threatening rain. I am cleaning up the house, picking up and tossing working to avoid my pack-rat tendencies. I am reading a book for the book club tonight where I am the lead for the discussion.

    Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

    Is it a good book Mariam? Always on lookout for a new book. I would <3 a book club in theory. Chances are, I would do it twice, get annoyed or hate having to go after work....LOL

    I am reading a translation of Arabian Nights. I have read different translations quite a few times, so this is not new. I am reading as someone who analyzes literature. It can be interesting, but for me it is from an academic point of view. I don't know that I would consider it a page-turner.

    If you have any questions on it, ask away. Shoot me a PM, whatever you want. We have used it for 5th-12th grade and I also use it PreK 1/2 for my daycare kids.

    Tuesday was moving day. No internet. WE hired movers (I have a bad shoulder so heavy lifting was out for me.) The movers were SO fantastic with Tech. They let him "help" them move boxes and heavy stuff, and even let him into the truck once all the tall stacks were shortened to not-over-his-head levels. He got to operate the up/down button on the ramp, and do stuff that is just fun when you are 6. Man is he BOSSY though!

    Got moved in, and didn't see our older cat for hours. She spent Tuesday hiding and hissing. Also found out the Baptist church across the street does a carillion (sp?) twice a day at noon and 6. For 10 minutes. UGH!

    This week will be unpacking and going back to the old house to finish cleaning up.
