Well, ummmmmmm.....

yeah. Life is running too fast to keep up with right now. Report cards went home this week and next week I dive headfirst into the deep end of IEP season. I have eleven students that I have to write new Individualized Education Plans for before Spring Break. Add to that drama at work and my camera is the last thing on my mind these days. I'll post what I have when I get a minute, but it may be a long time. =(

A picture of Billy and Lucky. Yeah, he has that "autistic look" in his eyes, but in reality, he was quite up for a photo shoot and with it when I was taking his picture. Just a bad capture I guess (but really, are there bad pictures of your kids? NEVER! LOL!

What a day for America! I didn't vote for Obama - shouldn't be a surprise to people that know me. Still, I'm looking forward to see what he can do for our country. Can't get too much worse, right? Bill and I watched the swearing in and address after the kids went to bed. It made me feel good to see him get sworn in. Our country has come a long way. You could feel the pride and hope people have for our first African-American President. The crowds in DC were simply amazing.

I don't have a picture for today. It was a very busy day - back to work for the first time in nearly a week, fantastic head cold that has my left ear nearly completely deaf and my right ear starting to fill, a trip to the walk in clinic for some meds, a quick sprint through the drive-thru for dinner, then off to basketball practice and the pharamacy for prescriptions. I didn't sit down until 9:00.

Good bye, Wii!!! We'll miss you!!

Had to send our Wii console back to Nintendo for repairs. It either wouldn't load our game discs, or halfway through a game would come up with an "unable to read disc" error. The bummer is that it will be gone for about three weeks. UGH!! That seems like an eternity! And I was so excited to start Wii Fit. The damn thing wouldn't even load the disc. HMPH!

It was a really boring picture so I put a watercolor wash on it to represent the tears we are shedding- LOL!

Happy Sunday! Bill is on the mend, but I can't hear out of my left ear anymore. I think it's a sinus infection gone rogue. Here are a couple of pictures of my sassy girl.

Today was Alex's first basketball game. Bill and I were a bit nervous - he's never really played basketball outside of gym class and his team only had 4 practices because of the bad weather we've been having (practices are at the school so if after school activities or school is cancelled, so is practice). He did surprisingly well! He doesn't get in there to try and rebound, but he played good defense, was the guy inbounding the ball, had the ball in the box (but didn't shoot it! He was looking to pass and ended up getting a 5 second violation), and got a fast break for his team.
