I Survived

So, I survived a week without Jamie that was full of work-related stress. Now I have him back home and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Well, except for the part where I have to practically hog-tie him to keep him in bed at night.

Jamie started daycare at the YMCA today. He was very excited (and relieved!) to find several friends from past YMCA sports and day camp there. Tomorrow, they get to go on a field trip to a place called Enchanted Springs Ranch. I'm sooo jealous. Do you think I could pass for an elementary schooler and go too?

Things are busy enough at work that not only is my boss' wife there to help out, but he's brought in his daughter part-time, too. I've been kept busy with more time consuming and detail oriented projects and thanks to Barbara and Michal, some of the more routine duties are off my shoulders so I can concentrate on these more exacting projects.

School started back officially today, but since the professors activated the web portal in Blackboard this past weekend, I was able to get an early start on my assignments. I'm taking three classes (nine hours) over the summer; two 5-week courses and one 10-week course. It's arranged so that I'm actually only actively participating in two classes at a time.

Speaking of school, better get off the blogs and on the books.

Big hugs to you all.
