Hoo boy!

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

I meant to post as usual this morning, but it's been a very wild day.

Making Light and Miss Snark for the latest on the Absolute Write/Barbara Bauer issue. It just gets curiouser and curiouser. The comment trails to both posts are long, but worth reading.

Spent the day taking the relative to the doc again. Yep, this is the same one that had the procedure on Tuesday. The news is encouraging. I won't bore you with names or details beyond that.

Chris went along with me, and we stopped off at Krispy Kreme for a donut and coffee. The light was on, so that meant an extra donut! Just what my waist needs, but Chris was ecstatic. We also picked some up to take to the relative. She's a donut fanatic.

Chris got a double-dose of good news this afternoon. First, he passed the TAKS, and nearly got commended performance level on Social Studies. Last year he got the passing score for Math just right on the button, which really got us worried about this year. No problem! He not only passed, but aced quadratic equations. Passing the test is required for graduation. Then we found his grades online. He passed math!!! Oh, I've gone on about his problems with the teacher, so I won't rehash that. His other grades were A's and B's, so we're all very happy.

We've got one more weekend of Return With Us Now..., so blogging may be sporadic until Monday.

>Since Lisa asked, Return With Us Now... is audio theatre. It takes place in a radio station on D-Day, June 6, 1941. So far it's been a lot of fun.

Today's picture is the promised Oscar Wilde, and that will be linked up in the next post. Then I hope to get around to seeing all of the Round Robin entries at last. It's been such a long week!
