• "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" --Mary Oliver

  • Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the little voice inside you the yells, "can't!" But you don't listen; you just push harder and then you hear the voice whisper "can" and you realize the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

Oh, Amy -- I can't believe you are still sick! I hope all those meds begin to work. And I still can't believe everything you do when you're not feeling well. Fortunately, I am now on the mend...

Is that the Big Bad Baby Blanket from Stitch N' Bitch? That's the main project I'm interested in from the book. I have this theory that if I can ever get my act together and learn to knit, I will start making baby blankets as welcome gifts for babies. (Assuming of course I do re-learn to knit, have time to do it, AND that the blankets would turn out OK.)

Our Big-A's got a great memory when it comes to books, and loves to read, but hasn't expressed a lot of interest in actually trying to sound out words and their components. I don't want to push it (she's got lots of time), but I want to make sure she stays interested in reading.

I also agree with your philosophy on public education. My parents both started off as teachers in the public school and retired with other public jobs (administrator and librarian) so there's no doubt we'll be doing public school for our girls unless something unexpected comes about.

Have a great weekend!
