Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
Another rainy day on the playground, so get your puddle boots and let's go wading. Oh...wait...today's high temp is supposed to be 56 degrees. Bit chilly for wading. Oh well, maybe next time it rains it'll be warmer.
Today is a fairly light day. The kiddos have counseling (which isn't really light...not for dd anyway) and then she's going to get her new iPhone. She's paying half so I don't feel bad letting her upgrade, especially since she immediately volunteered to give her iPod to ds and now he'll be able to play his Lego game any time he wants to instead of begging to use her iPod in order to play. With her driving by herself in two months, I want her to be equipped with a good phone and a way to find herself if she gets lost, LOL.
Yesterday's career assessment yielded a rather interesting result. Among dd's choices was...mortician and also crematorium manager. Whaaaaat???? She was amused by that, LOL. I suppose the suggestion was based on people skills and empathy, which she does have a lot of, but she most certainly has no desire to be working with dead bodies, at least on a routine basis! Her "better" choices were things like social worker, art therapist, music therapist, teacher, law enforcement, etc. The guidance counselor liked her tentative plan, which is a psychology major with music and business minors, because she'd like to open a residential treatment center that has a sliding fee scale so that anyone can attend regardless of their ability to pay.
