We had a busy day...
I never got near the basement wall, but pretty well everything else went off without a hitch. :D
We both passed out for like two and half hours after getting the kids settled in their beds... zonk!
just say'en: DQ ice cream cakes... feed huge groups of people... and we have a lot of ice cream cake in the freezer.
Dinner with the family went wonderfully... and we spent the majority of it outside.
Croquet games and bar-b-q's....
champaign and cola...
hamburgers and salads.
It was all good.
Hey, how about some randomness;
~ every single boy and girl that comes out of High School should have a firm understanding of how to load and use a modern sewing machine.
~ the day after the Anglican "dioceses" (or whatever they're called) elected to defer - for three years - their churchs vote on supporting same sex marriage, the did pass into record the decision that the church "confirms the sanctity and integrity of adult same sex relationships". Apparently even getting that through was a trick with the conservatives in the room. Still... it's something.
~ developing your childs sense of responsibility, with respect to his or her use of the internet is superior to extracting control over the internet through site restriction software or blocks. The sense of responsibility will be with them always... and your controls will surely not be. That sense of responsibility "building" thing... that's the hard part. Time limits per week... computing in a family setting (versus tucked away in a bedroom)... are good starts... but it's a two way street. It's a lot like a right-of-way... you gotta yeild it as a parent or they're never going to take it as young adults.
~ I wonder how my friend katy_kate is doing... and how indigojo for that matter... I hope you are both well...
Ok... bed time. :D
