...and my fingernails are ALL the same nice length AT THE SAME TIME.
I know, it's like a little miracle.
Aren't you glad you came to read my blog today?! :)
So I've come up with two analogies to explain the almost scary cheerfulness that I've been feeling since Monday morning, despite the bad news. Are you ready? Here they are:
#1 - Emotional foreclosure. :) Too much to handle, so we reset the counters.
#2 - Computer freaking out - let's reboot.
Or maybe, really, I just needed to cry and let out some of what I've been bottling up for the last 6 or 7 weeks.
Either way, I'm feeling much better, and I think I'm going to survive. :) Only 13 more days of Arabic class! :)
And on another happy note, my roommate for next year and I turned in an application for a really cute duplex!! YAY! :) I may even get to move my stuff in before I head west for family time! :)
And I talked to my sister again today, and it turns out that since Sunday they have revisited the question of continuing to home school their kids rather than send them to public school, and if they go the home school route the first day of school in the school district won't matter and they'll be at the reunions longer! I know they need to do what's best for their kids, but would it be too much to ask for the entire internet to pray that they'll decide to home school, so I can spend more time with those kids next month?? That's a valid reason to make important decisions about your kids' education and future, isn't it?? ;)
